As a young fan and aficionado of science fiction, Dean Radin soon became intrigued by what seemed an odd paradox: The psychic phenomena presumed to be true by his favorite authors were readily ignored or dismissed by mainstream scientists. Radin was determined to resolve the challenge of fact or fiction. In this fascinating interview, Radin reveals the no-nonsense high-tech strategies used in his controlled laboratory experiments to amass extensive and irrefutable data that demonstrate these phenomena do indeed exist — remote viewing, distant healing, intuition, place memory, and more. Beyond establishing without question that these phenomena indeed exist, his latest research, according to Radin, is aimed at unveiling precisely how these phenomena work. “We’re looking for the causal mechanism,” says Radin. “We’re not dealing with something that looks like ordinary causality.” Radin is encouraged that the “invisible college” is waking up: “Interest among scientists is growing quickly, and it’s starting to become less invisible, and to take shape very quickly, especially in the medical world.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
