Description

The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes.

According to noted scientist and best-selling 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 40 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.

Beginning with a brief history of magic over the centuries (what was called magic 2,000 years ago is turning out to be scientific fact today), a review of the scientific evidence for magic, a series of simple but effective magical techniques (the key is mental focus, something elite athletes know a lot about), Radin then offers a vision of a scientifically informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in frontiers of science.

Pertinent but lackluster

"Real Magic. Ancient wisdom, modern science, and a guide to the secret power of the universe." The book was a relatively quick listen. The majority of the book discusses the historical backgrounds and current scientific trends of 'magic.' I got through it, remaining patient like a surfer waiting for a really good wave. I'm ADHD so it took a LOT of patience to hang in there for the third and final part of the book.

Figuratively, I studied the waters, stood up on my board, and readied myself for a memorable ride: "...a guide to the secret power of the universe." Boom! The wave breaks on the shoreline almost instantly. That ride never materialized. My audiobook came to an abrupt ending. "What about the guide??" I asked the great universal conscience. It felt like I had been dropped on the beach and told that I was on my own to figure out how to harness those bleeping "esoteric" powers.

I am frustrated. I'm still trying to figure out why Dean Radin, PhD wrote this book. He seems educated, accomplished, and earnest. However, all he managed to communicate to me was: "I know something that you don't, Ms. Jane Q Public - how to make money on a book that promises much but accomplishes little." I'm 61 years old. I'm trying to find out what to do with the last 20 years of my life in this body - on this earth - and don't want to waste time or money. I'll pack up my sixth sense and head to another beach.

But before I go, I want to compliment the excellent narrator, Mark Bramhall, who is positively top-notch. He narrated "Reincarnation Blues" by Michael Poore, which is my all-time favorite book.

History & current changes in Consciousness science

This was an enjoyable listen. Dean Radin has a dry sense of humor that pops up here and there, and I burst out laughing a couple of times.

Many people I had learned about in history were tied together in this book in a most interesting pathway weaving through time and humanity. The book made their lives and work more meaningful to me.

The various science experiments with people were really interesting. The statistical probabilities were too. One thing that stood out was something to do with how there are always exceptional people in a population, and the speculation that there are potentially 7,000 people with exceptional abilities on this planet now reminded me of something that was mentioned in one of Robert Monroe's books, I think, of a similar idea to think about.

There were many fascinating ideas and scientific results throughout, and the author's wry tellings of the past and current scientific barriers to the study or even consideration of Consciousness is interesting too. It is nice to see that change is happening.

This book could have been too scholarly, because there's a lot of information in it, but somehow there is an undercurrent of humor that made it easy listening.

Narrator: Very good.

perfectly nuanced in every way.

Sprinkled with real science, occult history, personality, humor. Perfect for those of us who are consciously at the edge of reality and about to evolve into who we really are.

Good Start on Magic

If you could sum up Real Magic in three words, what would they be?

This is a modern and scientific look at magic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Real Magic?

One and the reason I bought the book was the three kinds of magic.

Have you listened to any of Mark Bramhall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not read or listened to any of Mark Bramhall's works but I'll take a look at his list.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I would have listened to this book if I had the time all together, I have listened to some of it twice because some things I already knew by other sources or other names.

Any additional comments?

This is a really outstanding book, I own both the Kindle and Audible versions and plan to by a printed version also.

YouTube interactive interviews given by Radin in promoting this release are engaging

Like his earlier books, this work needed to build a case to establish the validity of the science. I am comfortable with his science and his work over his career, so building this case again became tedious for my taste. I felt that the interviews in his own voice to be convicting and thoughtful. I enjoyed the book, but valued hearing his own voice and sensing his feeling as he would explain the nuisance of his research. Please consider following up your reading with listening to his interviews, many of which are on YouTube.

The application of science to consciousness

This books is full of fascinating experiments that prove “magic” or the abilities of developed consciousness is real for all of us. This book is loaded with large vocabulary terms and technical jargon, but such a great read, I finished the entire book.

Phenomenal!

"im definitely buying the physical copy of this book" allow yourself to open your minds, your hearts and all percepeption to see beyond irrational disbelief, only then will this book show you incontrovertible evidence of "REAL MAGIC" and profound real world implications in which we can set aside our dogmatic systems to learn and grow in our understanding of inherent collective conciousness.

Finally someone said it!

We all know there is real magic in the world. That's what scares the old self righteous keepers of the status quo. Nobody wants to be wrong and look stupid. Finally, finally someone is open minded enough to consider it logically. This author explores the subject with wit and humor. The old guard will eventually die out, and the rest of us can get on with it! Don't you just love proof!

Loved this

I super enjoyed this book. Brought up some interesting studies and perspectives and it wasn't written For a "woo woo" audience, but rather addresses a general audience, which I loved.

Wow, bloody brilliant!
Amazingly honest and real as well as fantastically magical — all wrapped into one.
Eye opening and life changing.

The best book about the science of magic.

Dean Radin summarizes his attempts on processing certain mind phenomena through the (quantitative) methods of modern science...and succeeds. This book is a little like a meta analysis of his own studies that impressively prove: what we think we know is little compared to what we are capable of, beyond this narrow understanding of our physical world. Nature sciences are one important approach to understand our reality, but they are by far the only think template. A little spoiler up ahead: the most impressive passage to me was, where he quoted the president of the American Statistician Association: not just anyone agreed with his perspective on certain aspects of the reality of our mind, but very important international science personell. A wonderful and important book for the science / spiritual interested mind.
