Why It’s Time To Start Taking Magic Seriously with Dr. Dean Radin
Science has been around for a few hundred years, religion has been around for a few millennia, and for most of that time magic has been regarded as something that is both separate from them and unnatural. And yet, as history reveals, a belief in magic seems to have been deeply embedded in the human psyche since the beginning of recorded time. Why is that?
To some people, magic is harmless hokum, to others, its evil. And for many self-respecting scientists in the 20th century, it was a career killer, and therefore anathema. So, when a book emerges that is endorsed by two Nobel laureates, a president of the American Statistical Association, and a program director from the National Science Foundation, one can’t help but sit up, take notice, and ask – is it time to start taking magic seriously?
According to Dean Radin, PhD, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and bestselling author, magic is real, and science is on its way to understanding it. In his latest book, REAL MAGIC: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe, Dean Radin presents scientific evidence demonstrating that thoughts are things, that we can sense others’ emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we have been taught, and that everyone can tap into the power that undergirds the physical universe itself.
