By Diane Hennacy Powell

A progressive clinical clarification of psychic phenomena and the character of human realization.

Although a lot is referred to now in regards to the mind, fairly little has been decided approximately the place cognizance comes from: what's the resource of the "I" in our inner monologue? How does anything as nonmaterial as recognition come up from whatever fabric just like the mind? Dr. Diane Powell, a Johns Hopkins–trained neuroscientist, has brilliantly reassessed the that means and nature of realization by way of exploring study at the workings of psychic phenomena.

Over the prior few many years a number of well-designed and carefully supervised experiments have documented the lifestyles of telepathic interconnection, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, and out-of-body studies. Mainstream technological know-how has mostly neglected those facts simply because all of them defy the conventional version of attention as being exclusively the manufactured from mind chemistry.

Building from those experiments, Powell constructs a brand new concept of attention. I ntegrating ideas from physics, neuroscience, and different disciplines, she deals an insightful and fascinating clarification of ESP, provocatively claiming that the lifestyles of psychic skills expands our realizing and appreciation of recognition. Psychic talents also are in step with findings in glossy physics: for instance, psychokinesis signifies that attention is a kind of strength box, whereas precognition means that the previous, current, and destiny exist simultaneously.

Eye-opening in its conclusions and intriguing in its implications, The ESP Enigma will problem your preconceived notions and extend your mind.
