Interviews Dean Radin

 

Dean Radin is a psychologist and engineer who has specialized in the study of anomalies associated with human consciousness, principally so-called psychic (psi) phenomena. He has investigated telepathy, psychokinesis, and precognition at Princeton University, the University of Edinburgh, Bell Laboratories, and SRI International, the latter as part of a classified program for the US government. Dr. Radin was elected President of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) affiliated Parapsychological Association in 1988, 1993, and 1998, and he is currently Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.  He is the author or coauthor of over two hundred scientific papers and popular articles, as well as one of the most popular scientific books on psi research–The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena.

The Conscious Universe reviews thousands of carefully controlled laboratory studies which demonstrate the effects of psi phenomena, and how the results of those studies combine to form a mountain of data in support of its existence. Outside of a few small scientific circles, few are aware of this research. In fact, most scientists don’t realize that the scientific evidence for some classes of psychic phenomena is comparable, in terms of experimental repeatability, to physical measurements on the fundamental properties of elementary particles. Operating in relative obscurity for more than a century, psi researchers have progressively refined their experiments to address criticisms from the skeptics, and have produced repeatable results which demonstrate generally small, but statistically unequivocal effects in favor of the existence of psychic or “psi” phenomena. The results from Dr. Radin’s meta-analysis of thousands of well-controlled studies indicate statistical odds of billions-to-one in favor of psi. Something is going on that conventional science is at a loss to explain.

Dr. Radin earned his Ph.D. and M.S., respectively, at the University of Illinois, Champaign. Prior to focusing on consciousness, for ten years Dr. Radin was engaged in advanced telecommunications research and development, initially at AT&T Bell Laboratories and later at GTE Laboratories. Dr. Radin’s research awards include the Parapsychological Association’s 1996 Outstanding Achievement Award and the 1996 Rhine Research Center’s Alexander Imich Award for advances in experimental parapsychology. He also earned Special Merit awards from Bell Labs in 1984 and from GTE Laboratories in 1992. Dr. Radin has been interviewed by many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times and Psychology Today, he was featured in a New York Times Magazine article, and he has appeared on dozens of television and radio programs worldwide.

When I first interviewed Dean in 1998 he was conducting proprietary research on the theoretical and experimental aspects of psi at a Silicon Valley think-tank called Interval Research Corporation, which closed in 2000. I interviewed him again on January 28, 2004. I found Dean to have an extremely sharp, and highly engaging, imaginative mind. There was a precision to the way that he described his thoughts. He seemed to have a deep intuitive understanding of the basic interconnectedness between things, and is also a very warm human being. We spoke about why so many scientists are prejudiced against accepting the results of psi research, the connection between psychic phenomena and altered states of consciousness, how information might be able to flow backwards in time, and the implications and applications of psi research. 

David: What were you like as a child?

Dean: I was a smaller version of what I am today — quiet, shy, and mainly interested in ideas.  I was always interested in books and how things work more than anything else, but my primary activity was music. I was a prodigy on the violin. I started at age five, and through about age twenty-five I spent the majority of my free time either playing the violin, practicing, or doing something associated with music.

David: What originally inspired you to study psychic phenomena?

Dean: I’m asked this question a lot, as you can imagine. I was always curious
