  • 00:00:00 In this section, Dean Radin, a pioneer in research on consciousness and psi phenomena, talks about his journey into the world of psychic phenomena. He was initially interested in the topic after reading fairy tales and science fiction as a pre-teen but became more involved in the scientific discipline studying psi phenomena as time went on. He started doing experiments on psychic phenomena after graduate school, and after getting consistently interesting results, became convinced that there was something going on. Radin's primary psychic experiences have occurred in the laboratory.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses his research interests, including mind-matter interaction and sentiment analysis based on Twitter tweets. He explains that sentiment measures are used to determine the degree of happiness conveyed in tweets to evaluate the effectiveness of advertising. Radin’s current research focuses on the correlation between mind-matter interaction ideas in physics and experiments that can be studied in a controlled environment, as well as using sentiment measures to determine a collective feeling of the future. His analysis suggests that there is a collective feeling of the future that may be used prospectively to detect negative events in advance.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses an online study that tracks Twitter users' moods to predict upcoming negative events. Radin observed that if the mood of Twitter users begins to decline dramatically over a few days, there is a high likelihood that something bad will occur five days later. The study automatically analyzes tweets from two weeks before the current day, stopping the slope two days before the current day to correct for time zone differences. Radin notes that the study does not take into account geographical location, but suggests in principle an algorithm could determine when, where, and what events are going to happen based on Twitter sentiment analysis.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses his various ongoing projects and the potential publication of a paper on Twitter analytics and sentiment analysis. He believes almost anything could be real in terms of psychic phenomena, but the evidence for macroscopic psychokinetic things like metal bending and levitation is very bad. While he has heard stories about spoon bending being a real thing, he was skeptical until he attended a spoon bending party and experienced the phenomenon for himself. He describes the sensation as feeling like putty and then hardening up instantly. He is not sure if this is the same as macroscopic psychokinesis or if it is actually happening at the microscopic level.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses spoon bending and how it's a mystery that scientists have yet to solve. He explains that the process requires unusual states of awareness that are difficult to produce on demand in the laboratory setting. While it's an interesting phenomenon, it's hard to figure out what's going on. He also discusses the unlimited possibilities of PSI and how we don't know the limits of the human brain. Radin implies that figuring out what's next is the joy of Leading Edge science, and scientists are interested in exploring the unknown.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, Dean Radin describes the phrase “as the bonfires of knowledge grow brighter, the more the darkness is revealed to our startled eyes.” He explains that the more one learns about a particular topic, the more questions they have. When asked about which experiment he conducted that he thinks is the most convincing of psychic phenomena, Radin mentions presentiment. The experiment measures the unconscious physiological responses of participants that correspond to a future event, proving that psychic experiences derive from the unconscious mind. Radin emphasizes the importance of making a massive body of evidence for psychic phenomena rather than highlighting one experiment.
  • 00:30:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses how many common experiences can be dismissed as coincidences or normalcy when in reality they may be PSI phenomena in action. Examples include experiences of presentiment—such as having a bad feeling about driving—which in some cases can result in avoiding potentially life-threatening situations. Other common experiences include feeling as though one is being stared at, unexplained download of ideas in business or the arts and telepathy while texting or calling, which happens to most individuals. Although these experiences could be due to factors besides PSI phenomena, studying the list of such experiences can significantly contribute to understanding and discovering which factors are probable.
  • 00:35:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses how coincidences do happen and how if we go into a controlled environment, we can find out if psychic phenomena are happening. There can be an actual connection between people in ways that we don't understand yet. Radin notes that the majority of people believe in these phenomena as they have experienced it. He believes that every sentient creature, including animals and plants, has some level of PSI abilities, and from the perspective of quantum entanglement, it's clear that there are ways we are connected that transcend space and time. Radin believes it's natural to have these experiences, but not everyone will have the ability to reach a high level of proficiency in it. Nevertheless, there are traditional methods that can amplify our ability to pay attention to these things, like meditation or psychedelics.
  • 00:40:00 In this section, Dean Radin explains that remote viewing is just clairvoyance, which involves quieting the mind and turning off internal chatter, so impressions of something can be received. He mentions that most people tend to name impressions immediately at the first impression, but expert remote viewers are skilled in not giving names. They slowly assemble the impressions gathered and, over time, build the descriptive pieces to form the whole image. Radin notes that it takes natural ability or training to become expert at it, and nobody should ever expect to get 100% accuracy all the time. Even with expert training, there will always be failures because of internal or external noise that gets in the way.
  • 00:45:00 In this section, the conversation explores the challenges of proving psychic phenomena to skeptics who demand 100% reliability in performance, comparing it to the world of sports where even the "best" athletes fail at times. The discussion also touches on the danger that would come with revealing an ability to perform psychically that is close to 100% reliable, as such a reveal could attract both threat and demand from high-power institutions like governments and businesses. Ultimately, the discussion on precognition and other phenomena highlights that our experiences of time and space are constructions, and that the nature of reality is likely stranger than we can comprehend.
  • 00:50:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses the possibility of influencing time and gravity through psychic means. The clocks on Earth run at different speeds due to gravitational differences, meaning the feet are younger than the head, but if two precise clocks were used and targeted psychically, could someone change the gravitational pull or manipulate time. This would be a modern version of levitation and although not as expensive as the CERN research, would still require $25,000 to conduct the experiment. However, it would indicate that psychic ability is linked to fundamental aspects of the physical world such as gravity and forces. Radin also talks about what he would do with an unlimited budget, which would be to create a hundred endowed chairs for parapsychology and major universities around the world, as this is where big advances in understanding complex issues can be made.
  • 00:55:00 In this section, Dr. Dean Radin discusses the effectiveness of energy healing, including practices like Reiki and Johrei. According to Radin, experiments have shown that energy healing works best for pain relief, even for those who did not initially believe in its effectiveness. There are few studies on distance healing, but the ones that have been conducted suggest there are distant physiological interactions with people. Although many ideas have been proposed to explain how it works, Radin believes most are purely speculative. However, he points out that measurable effects have been observed. For instance, one study showed that the structure of water changed when a healer performed healing on someone wearing a sample of the same water. Radin's recent study using a Quantum noise generator also showed that something is happening when healers perform their task, indicating that the manipulation of space, time and information might be involved.

In this YouTube video, Dean Radin discusses various aspects of psychic phenomena and their scientific basis. He explains that psychic phenomena are not about energy imposition but rather a prompted internal effect caused by an informational change. Radin also delves into the possibility of brains mimicking entanglement, which could explain psychic phenomena like telepathy and precognition. He remains agnostic about the survival of consciousness and notes that governments and funding often hinder open discussions of these topics. Additionally, Radin talks about his interest in the ce5 phenomenon and shares the inspiring words of Joseph Campbell about following one's bliss and passion.

  • 01:00:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses how psychic phenomena are not about imposing energy from the outside but rather about causing an informational change that prompts an internal effect. He uses the analogy of causing a physiological reaction through gentle whispered words about winning the lottery instead of using a heat gun. He also talks about how prayer is a form of ritualized intention and how laboratory studies on intercessory prayer and distant healing without any religious context have variable results. Radin also talks about the likelihood of there being aspects of the brain that act in a Quantum fashion, and the rise of quantum biology gives evidence that living systems have all kinds of quantum things going on, which could be recreating Quantum coherence.
  • 01:05:00 In this section, the speaker explains how the brain's behavior can mimic entanglement, which is a non-local feature of quantum physics. If different aspects of the brain are non-locally connected in a quantum way, then psychic phenomena like telepathy and precognition could exist. The speaker also mentions his experiments with double-slit systems to show that mind-matter interaction is plausible. The content shifts to a question about child savants and geniuses, which the speaker addresses by comparing these abilities to intuition, the bubbling up of unconscious knowledge, and the ability to access everything.
  • 01:10:00 In this section, Dean Radin explains that some savants perform their extraordinary abilities by focusing on a single thing with a brain attuned to it, which could work better than a PC if the brain can behave like a quantum computer. While it is difficult to give a solid answer, Radin believes there may be a spectrum of possibilities or answers, given the countless ranges of savants and geniuses. On the other hand, Radin believes that some agencies somewhere have a program and are interested in precognition as it is still useful in cases that involve predicting future events that even the best technology out there cannot do yet.
  • 01:15:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses the agnosticism surrounding the body of evidence for the survival of consciousness. The psychic confound prevails in all cases which makes it difficult to establish a firm answer either for or against survival. This conflict initiated the parapsychology field while discussing the limits of psychic ability. Referring to idealism, there could be sentient consciousness in an infinite number of forms, suggesting a non-physical, invisible form that could exist with creatures. The metaphors used to explain consciousness are like an ocean with its waves or an island in the sea; everything is part of the same whole of consciousness, and it is not independent of one another. There are many questions that remain unanswered about personality and memory, and Dean Radin remains agnostic about his survival. It is possible that there will be a different kind of existence if there is any.
  • 01:20:00 In this section, Dean Radin discusses his thoughts on the phenomenon of UFOs and the potential connection with consciousness. Radin explains that he is agnostic about the possibility of extraterrestrial life, but notes that it is extremely unlikely that humans are the only intelligent creatures in the universe. He suggests that the evidence of extraterrestrial life may not actually be evidence of ET, but rather other forms of life that have been here all along. Radin believes that religion, funding, science, and governments sustain taboos that prevent serious discussion of UFOs, survival, and PSI by scientists and scholars. He argues that if we welcome the possibility of ETs, we might be given a book to serve them without realizing the true intentions behind it. Ultimately, Radin stresses the importance of openly discussing these phenomena to make significant changes and expand our understanding of the world.
  • 01:25:00 In this section, Radin discusses a topic called ce5, which is the ability to communicate with anomalous lights in the sky or craft. He admits that he has no idea what to make of it as it's interpreted typically in the form of an extraterrestrial being or a spirit but shares that he pays attention to it as a source of great interest although he cannot do anything about it. Furthermore, he gives out words of wisdom from Joseph Campbell, a mythologist, encouraging everyone to follow their bliss and passion, whatever that may be, as a way of making a living without feeling like they're even working a day in their life.
