Author and scientist Dean Radin joins host Paul Kimball for a discussion about Radin’s previous books, The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds, as well as his new book Supernormal: Science, Yoga and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities. The conversation begins with a bit of background about Dr. Radin, as he describes how he became interested in studying psi phenomena and outlines the basic conclusions he has been able to draw after twenty years of research. This serves as a starting point for an examination of the philosophical, moral and spiritual implications of quantum entanglement in terms of consciousness as well as our focus on the individual over the collective. The discussion then turns to the nature of modern institutionalized science, and how it could be oriented to serve a broader range of human interests than simple profit, as well as the need for scientists to have a better grounding in, and appreciation of, the humanities. Kimball and Radin then conclude their conversation by looking at the relationship between supernormal mental abilities, from telepathy to precognition, and Eastern mystic and spiritual traditions, as outlined in Supernormal.
