The Magic of Science (and the science of magic with Dean Radin
Click to listen on your favorite podcast platform:
According to noted scientist and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.
But wait, aren’t things like ESP and telepathy just wishful thinking and flights of the imagination? Not according to the author, who worked on the US government’s top secret psychic espionage program known as Stargate. Radin has spent the last forty years conducting controlled experiments that demonstrate that thoughts are things, that we can sense others’ emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we thought, and that we can tap into the power of intention (think The Secret, only on a more realistic and scientific level).
These dormant powers can help us to lead more interesting and fulfilling lives.
The history of science is rooted in the traditions of magic. Science emerged as a way of understanding the mystery of magic.
But science, as a stand alone body of knowledge is incomplete and doesn’t account for the fact that more than 90% of scientists reporting that they themselves have had mystical experiences. Scientists also report that more than 50% of scientific discoveries come from serendipity, divine “accidents’ or, dare I say – magic.
But magic, without science is also an incomplete way of understanding the world. Magic without science is superstition and keeps us from understanding how to harness the power of science AND magic to solve the challenges facing humanity today.
