The Book 4th Edition
“Those who recognize that significant discoveries
in science are very often prompted by observations that
do not fit expectations will find a stimulating challenge
in accumulating evidence that it is possible to elicit psychic
functioning in experiments with ordinary volunteers acting
as subjects. Even more convincing results occur with specially

Those who think they can rely on outdated science to support
a materialist view of a universe without an afterlife and
psychic phenomena are clearly misinformed.
A revolution going on in science.
Over the last few decades there has been a significant increase
in research into quantum physics, the study of the characteristics
of and relationships between subatomic particles and energies.
Innovative, unorthodox physicists tell us this important
research has a strong bearing on the understanding of the
paranormal and the afterlife.
These physicists are discovering no conflict at all between
physics and belief in the paranormal and the afterlife.
Indeed they are showing that the phenomena we now call “paranormal”
are normal and consistent with the laws of science.
Professor Fred Alan Wolf sums up this
view when he writes:
I believe that the findings of quantum physics increasingly
support Plato [who taught that there is a more perfect,
non-material realm of existence]. There is evidence that
suggests the existence of a non-material, non-physical
universe that has a reality even though it might not as
yet be clearly perceptible to our senses and scientific
instrumentation. When we consider out-of-body experiences,
shamanic journeys and lucid dream states, though they
cannot be replicated in the true scientific sense, they
also point to the existence of non-material dimensions
of reality. (1998:245)
British scientist, Ron Pearson, in his
article "Survival Physics" argues that survival
of death is a natural part of physics and efforts to discredit
evidence of survival after death are misplaced:
Since survival can be shown an essential and integral
part of physics, the hope must be that the efforts still
being made to discredit all evidence of survival will
soon come to an end. This theory has achieved publication
in Russian conference Proceedings (1&2) of 1991 and
1993 respectively, and in the peer-reviewed scientific
journal "Frontier Perspectives"(3) in 1997.
Furthermore Prof. Peter Wadhams, Professor of Ocean Physics
at Cambridge University, supported the theory during a
joint broadcast on the American Radio Shows in 2001. (Pearson,
For more than a hundred years numerous physicists
have been at the forefront of psychic research.
They have seen no inconsistency between science and existence
of the paranormal and the afterlife.
Sir Oliver Lodge, one of the greatest
physicists of all times, accepted life after death after
using his scientific genius to prove it. He was a founder
of the Society for Psychical Research. I have a lot of respect
for Sir Oliver Lodge and would like to provide a short quote
from his article Linking Life After Death To Subatomic
If, then, we can adduce any evidence that life or mental
activity exists in space, and only sporadically makes
itself evident by some material activity, the state of
our present knowledge of physics renders our acceptance
of the fact entirely harmonious. We have to do no violence
to our physical conceptions if we admit the fact of survival.
Life and mind never were functions of the material body,
they only displayed themselves by means of the material
Other notable physicists who investigated survival or psychic
phenomena include Dr Harold Puthoff, Professor Russell Targ
and Professor Dr Ernst Senkowski.
Dr Harold Puthoff, is a physicist and
current Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in
Austin, Texas. He has made significant contribution towards
empirically establishing the validity of psi particularly
in the field of “remote viewing”. This was a
term he jointly coined to describe a form of psychic functioning
historically known as clairvoyance.
Professor Russell Targ is a physicist
and author who pioneered the development of the laser. He
was also co-founded the Stanford Research Institute's investigation
into psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s. He authored
numerous books suggesting that the mind itself reaches to
the far ends of the universe and that it is this "non-local"
quality, rather than any particular mechanism, that accounts
for the remarkable data of parapsychology.
Professor Dr Ernst Senkowski is a professor
of physics and electronics who conducted intensive paranormal
and afterlife research for over twenty years. Dr Senkowski
repeatedly obtained positive paranormal and 'afterlife'
Several physicists have recently published books arguing
that materialist science is incomplete and therefore unable
to adequately account for positive paranormal evidence.
They urge the acceptance of a new paradigm or worldview
which includes psychic phenomena and the existence of multiple
universes including the so-called afterlife.
Dr Amit Goswami, is a former Professor
of Physics at the Institute of Theoretical Sciences at the
University of Oregon. He is currently a senior resident
researcher at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. His book
Physics of the Soul--The Quantum Book Of Living, Dying,
Reincarnation And Immortality defines consciousness,
not materiality, as the primary reality.
Professor John Bokris in his book discusses
the The New Paradigm--A Confrontation Between Physics
and the Paranormal Phenomena (2005)evidence for the
paranormal, including telepathy, near-death experiences,
out-of-body travel, mediumship, reincarnation, apparitions,
possession, distant healing, and other phenomena. He concludes
that other concepts such as the paranormal, theories about
consciousness, and interconnectedness must be integrated
into science to enable a superior understanding of reality.
His central proposal is that we are living in a "synchronized
universe," one layer of which we see and interact with
and are synchronized with. This is what we identify as the
“real” universe. There are other universes alongside
this, he argues, which are just as real as this one. This,
he states, “begins to offer a way to understand how
the soul, the center of human consciousness, can exist in
a permanent form, surviving human death. It offers a useful
beginning to a deeper understanding of the universe and
of ourselves.” (Bokris 2005)
Another physicist Dr. Claude Swanson, has
collated the "best evidence" illustrating the
inadequacy of our present scientific paradigm. In his book,
The Synchronised Universe, he describes scientifically
controlled remote viewing and ESP experiments, demonstrations
of long-range healing, psychokinesis (mind over matter),
scientifically controlled experiments in levitation, teleportation
and out of body phenomena (OBE). He outlines numerous examples
of these strange forces being demonstrated under rigorous
scientific conditions, with odds of millions or even billions
to one against chance. Dr Swanson argues that there is a
need for a new, truly "unified field theory" which
can explain and understand both science and consciousness.
In his new book Entangled Minds (2006) Dr
Dean Radin contends that those who think that science
has no place for the paranormal do not know what they are
He writes: “new discoveries in science are
forcing an expansion to ideas of who and what we are, and
that those who are most hostile to this topic know little
or nothing about the evidence”.
Many impressively credentialed top-grade scientists are
independently making discoveries in areas such as homoeopathy,
bio-electrography, remote viewing and healing through prayer.
These are all areas that challenge traditional reductionist
scientific thinking. Their findings support the new view
of a world in which everything is interconnected in a pulsating
energy field (McTaggart 2001).
Rather than being lifeless matter, subatomic particles are
being revealed as having consciousness. Michael Talbot describes
an experiment by Aspect, Dalibard and Roger 1982 which he
predicts will be the most important experiment of the 20th
Aspect and his team discovered
that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such
as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with
each other regardless of the distance separating them.
University of London physicist David Bohm
believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does
not exist and that despite its apparent solidity, the universe
is fundamentally a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed
hologram. (Talbot 2000: 196).
Many other physicists are converting to the view that rather
than being made of inert matter and energy, the universe is
essentially consciousness. As Professor Jacob D. Bekenstein
a century of developments in physics has taught us that
information is a crucial player in physical systems and
processes. Indeed, a current trend, initiated by John
A. Wheeler of Princeton University, is to regard the physical
world as made of information, with energy and matter as
( Bekenstein 2003).
Science is not static
During the nineteenth century it was generally accepted
that atoms were solid substantial particles that cannot
be broken down any further. Quantum physics is demonstrating
that what we think of as solid is mostly empty space. “Matter”
is, to use Einstein’s term “frozen energy”
(Ash and Hewett 1990: 16-26) and we are living in a universe
that is essentially consciousness.
Professor Jessica Utts and Nobel laureate Dr Brian Josepheson
state that science needs to adapt to accommodate the evidence.
What are the implications for science of the fact that
psychic functioning appears to be a real effect? These
phenomena seem mysterious, but no more mysterious perhaps
than strange phenomena of the past which science has now
happily incorporated within its scope (Utts and Josephson
These physicists and other scientists--some of the most
inspired and most brilliant scientific minds on earth--are
stating that there is an overwhelming amount of evidence
to support the paranormal and the afterlife.
The record confirms that those orthodox, negatively entrenched
materialist reductionist scientists who fail to explore
quantum physics, have been unable to rebut the existing
empirical evidence for the paranormal and the afterlife.
As established above, there are now many physicists around
the world who have demonstrated clear verification of psi
and the afterlife. When added to other overwhelming evidence
presented in this work, quantum physics is a powerful tool
in proving that consciousness survives physical death. I
predict that in years to come quantum physics will be the
revolutionary method of absolutely demonstrating survival

Nature's Mind: the Quantum Hologram
Dr Edgar Mitchell, former lunar astronaut, is the founder
of the Institute of Noetic Sciences located in Sausalito,
Calif. In this article he claims that the case for mind/mind
and mind/matter interactions is impressively well documented
over many decades with staggering probabilities against
chance having produced the results. He claims that the discovery
of the non-local quantum hologram, which is theoretically
sound and experimentally validated in at least one application,
suggests a major paradigm change must be forthcoming.
