Elephant.I don't think a more important book than this was published during the cold war, with the exception of all other books published during the cold war.I underexaggerate. I know what you're thinking. I just made you think what you did merely by presenting dark shapes on light because you've been conditioned to process these shapes mentally in a largely pre-determined way. If I want you to think of an elephant, it doesn't matter where you live (elephant) or your cultural background; your ex [...]
In 1967, Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder were invited to Moscow to attend a conference on ESP. After the conference, the two traveled throughout Russia, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia gathering research on the paranormal. What they discovered was extraordinary: precognition, auras, prophecy, past lives, faith healing, the power of forms – the list goes on and on.In a chapter entitled, “Pavel Stepanek, An Answer For The Skeptics,” Ostrander and Schroeder write about a young Czech named Pa [...]
Read this a long time ago, just brought it back from my parents house to re-read again. I found it interesting at the time, but can't rate it till a re-read.
This is a fascinating look at the history of remote viewing research in Eastern Europe with some info not readily available elsewhere. There is an interesting contradiction I'm still trying to understand - in some obvious ways the United States has been a much more open society than Russia for quite a while with freedom of the press, etc. So why is it that in other ways the Russian culture and Russian scientific scene has long been so much more open minded and ready for new paradigms than those [...]
The book is certainly comprehensive, covering telepathy, telekinesis, acupuncture, Kirlian photography, astrological birth control, a blind woman who could read books by passing her finger over text and a whole lot more, most in Russia but with chapters on research in Bulgaria and what was then Czechoslovakia. It was certainly interesting and thought provoking, especially to one who is of the view that the human mind has many capabilities which are largely dormant. However, close to 50 years hav [...]
Of this list of well completed criteria for a good book, the setting’s description was of the highest quality. The authors provided detailed descriptions of where they were at each stage, when these events took place, why the conference was held at its location, why the people who attended were significant, and what was gathered from each conversation and lecture. The information on the experiments conducted by the various scientists are extremely detailed, and give accounts of the first psych [...]
Ein sehr seltsames und sehr unterhaltsames Buch über die Erforschung parapsychologischer Fähigkeiten im (damaligen) Ostblock. Die Autoren sind vorurteilsfrei durch die einzelnen besprochenen Staaten (Sowjetunion, Bulgarien, Tschechoslowakei) gewandert und haben sich für die vielen Gerüchte Beweise vorlegen lassen. Im Buch werden alle verfügbaren Materialien ohne Unterschied zitiert: Dabei entsteht der Eindruck eines freundlichen Ostblocks, in dem die Wissenschaft unerklärte Phänomene gut [...]
Lots of interesting stuff here, for those with an inquisitive mind and the ability to look outside of the Box society tries to put us all in.
For the record. For future generations since it was published, the book is absolutelly fantastic.I never ask anyone to be a believer, but I think it is fair to ask from people to be, at least, open to new ideas.After reading this book, either you conclude that it is a well elaborated piece of fake registers, or that things really happen. There is no middle term.
Lystikäs, iloisen kritiikitön kuvaus 60-luvulla itäblokin alueella vaikuttaneista meedioista, telepaateista ja heidän tempuistaan innostuneista tiedemiehistä. Sisällöltään köykäinen mutta hauska lukukokemus joka voi olla myös opettavainen jos koko ajan pitää mielessään kysymyksen "mikä tässä koeasetelmassa on pielessä?".
Not a brilliant or detailed book but the only English-language text documenting Soviet research into what the West considers paranormal behavior. Information moldy--from the mid 60's--but that's all there is, so if that's what you need, it's a valuable text.
utter shit. a waste of time.
Interesting contrast to some of the programs that were going on in the US but I'm going to have to label this fiction. If this technology were real then where is it now?
i want to read
I have 1970 edition
