The Eternal Validity of the Soul. Martin Luther King, Jr. Although he throws in a few interesting anecdotal cases, Radin devotes most of his time to: Radin concludes his book with a wide-angle lens with which he discusses both the theory and scientific implications of psi.

In other words, there is a definite effect being measured here. Highly recommended for the skeptical. This is another abandoned book on my part.
He also discusses the idea that groups of humans may be able to form a field of consciousness, sometimes called a “collective consciousness. On the other hand, he thinks that someday we may be able to explain even miracles without resorting to supernatural explanations.
