The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities

About The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities
Nobel laureate physicist Brian Josephson says, “This book should make those who deny the existence of [psychic] phenomena think again.” In The Reality of ESP, Targ presents evidence from the $20 million research program he co-founded at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in the 1970s. The amazing feats of psychic ability he details include: While remote viewing for the CIA, SRI psychics found a downed Russian bomber in Africa, reported on the health of American hostages in Iran, and described Soviet weapons factories in Siberia. When San Francisco heiress Patricia Hearst was abducted from her home in Berkeley, a psychic with the SRI team identified the kidnapper and then accurately described and located the kidnap car. After leaving SRI, Targ's group made $120,000 by psychically forecasting for nine weeks in a row the direction and amount of changes in the silver commodity futures market – without error! Targ also describes a plan for developing your own psychic abilities.

 Book Readers Review

The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities, presents statistical evidence ESP is real.  Physicist Russell Targ introduces the reader to ESP or Remote Viewing (RV) presenting cases and scientific research.  In his own words Targ states, "Proof establishes knowledge or the truth of a conclusion".  For decades, Targ has produced significant scientific research on the nature of consciousness. He describes amazing feats of psychic ability, such as, identifying the kidnapper Patricia Hearst, locating a downed Russian aircraft, and specific remote viewing for the CIA and Army Intelligence.  Phenomena such as mental influence and healing from a distance are introduced.  Targ includes a section on reincarnation and the survival of identity after bodily death.  He enlightens the reader with interesting research and cases in favor of the proposition that elements of a personality survive after death.  The hypothesis that man can see into the distance and future has been written by Buddhist and Hindu's for the past twenty-five hundred years. Targ's scientific findings, examples, and explanations in terms of quantum approach of non-locality, remote viewing and pre-cognition should be confirmation to those who accept these concepts.  Even non-believers may start to re-evaluate their opinions.

The book 'Reality of ESP' is fascinating and informative.  The author presents his own and other's research in an authentic and readable format.  Those who are believers will find a wealth of information from experiments to scientific research.  The data can be verified with further research and reading listed by Targ in extensive references and notes and the end of the book.  Even those who are not true believers will begin to question what is real or not and want to delve further into the subject matter.  Russell writing is compelling and convincing.  I had reservations when asked if I wanted to review the book thinking it might be too technical and laborious.  However, my curiosity about ESP or Remote Viewing, overcame any doubts.  He has provided me, and others with the definitive answer, there is more to the universe than us mere physical beings.  And shown that our mental capabilities are far beyond the understanding of the average human being.  But if one keeps an open mind, learning more from these experiences is possible.  The ‘Reality of ESP’ is inspirational and highly recommended by myself and many reviewers.
