All the evidence for psi you’ll ever need!








Wow! Dean Radin has very kindly put up a page with links to all the best evidence for psi-related human abilities – ESP, telepathy, clairvoyance, intention at a distance and so on. If you have ever wanted to discover more about the evidence, or point a skeptic in the direction of the evidence, you need look no further!

I have cut and pasted all the links here, but do go to Dean Radin’s great blog and web site – and to YouTube for very informative videos like his talk at the Electric Universe conference in 2013– if you want to find out first hand about all this kind of research.
