Présentation de l'éditeur

The psychic abilities of most humans are dampened by the clatter of our conscious minds. In this timely book, Russell Targ shows readers how to quiet this noise and see into the far reaches of time and space through remote viewing. He also illuminates the phenomena of intuitive medical diagnosis and distant healing in a groundbreaking synthesis of research and empirical data. Drawing on a broad range of spiritual traditions, Targ demonstrates that these psychic abilities offer a path of self-inquiry and self-realization and have the power to expand each person’s limited awareness into the consciousness shared by all beings. Targ explores the scientific and spiritual implications of remote viewing, as well as offering practical techniques and exercises to nurture this universally available but often untapped skill.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Limitless Mind, By Russell Targ 15 mai 2004
Par Eldon K. Van Vliet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
REVIEW OF "LIMITLESS MIND" by Russell Targ, reviewed by Keith Van Vliet
As a scientist, Targ is able to draw on a comprehensive knowledge of physics to give authority to what otherwise might be taken lightly. His background includes working in a traditional aviation corporate structure, which he left to pursue the field which is the subject of the book, remote viewing. He states, "My personal goal has been, for many years, to turn a rocket scientist into a human being."
His additional education covers much material from the east, which he weaves throughout the material.
In 1972 he co-founded with Dr. Hal Puthoff the Stanford Research Institute program to scientifically investigate remote viewing, which he continued for over two decades.
He begins by introducing the term "nonlocality," a scientific term that my spell checker did not recognize. It means the separation of cause and effect over both time and space., which violates traditional scientific laws and causes great consternation in science. His investigations did much to attract the attention of colleagues and bring official recognition that this was something science had to deal with sooner or later. Although Targ does not dwell on this aspect overly long, he quotes Voltaire as writing, "It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.
The actual experiments he conducted used people known to have some psychic ability, but throughout the book he insists that this power is natural, and possessed by anyone who is of a mind to practice. The descriptions given by the viewer were accurate well beyond any estimates of chance guessing, and were double blind, where the subject site was not known by the interviewer. Many times the viewer was able to give a description prior to the site being chosen. Even with the gifted viewers, there is a lack of completeness that would prevent most remote viewing from having practical value, except is certain cases. Targ does not go into this, choosing to emphasize the other more positive reasons that he pursued the research.
One of the remarkable statements he makes is, "To me, these data suggest that all of space-time is available to your consciousness, right where your are. You are always on the edge." He sees consciousness and awareness as the causal action in all of reality. His choice of title, "Limitless Mind," accurately describes the conclusions he reaches in the book, although he describes "enlightenment" as the ultimate goal for each human being, with PSI ability being something that will move you along towards the goal.
Targ includes many examples of PSI that have been supported by scientific verification. One of which covers the ability of precognition. In the cited experiment it was labeled presentiment, and in it the subjects were shown graphic slides that carried potentially emotional charges with them. The subject was connected to electronic devices to record their nervous and biological responses to the slides. The remarkable thing was that these responses began three to five seconds PRIOR to the showing of the slide, and corresponded to the material shown. The subjects were non gifted people who volunteered out of the general population, which supports Targ's conclusion that everyone already has a measure of PSI ability.
He supports his descriptions by liberally quoting other people who have contributed to the field, such as Edgar Cayce, Ernest Holmes, The Dali Lama, and ranging to philosophers like Emerson and Thoreau, with a whole chapter given over to the leaders in examining the phenomenon, Distant Healing. He ponders the various ways healing can take place from the efforts of the mind, and at what stages it might not be possible to effect healing. He brings the time factor into this thought process, wondering if help could be obtained for some seriously ill person by influencing their condition at an earlier time in the illness.
It was refreshing to encounter the number of times he referred to IONS, and researchers Marilyn Schlitz, and Dean Radin as being experts in the field.
Early in the book he mentions "The Course in Miracles." He had some involvement with it near the beginning of its publication, but didn't begin to study it until several years later when he started to take personally the implications of his experiments, and he quotes from it liberally. He also quotes freely from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity in what each of them has to say about the path to enlightenment.
Targ refers several times to the work of his daughter, Elizabeth Targ, who conducted prayer research at California Pacific Medical Center, with much the same scientific accountability that her father did at SRI. Only at the end of the book does he go into more of a memorial for her. Elizabeth died recently of a deadly form of cancer.
His comments range much wider than just remote viewing, although he views that practice as a concrete step to a more contemplative existence. To me, the book seemed to add up to an examination of the concept of personal enlightenment, the reasons for seeking it, and the various pathways to its attainment. Looking back on the scientific community for the past fifty years it is refreshing to witness the number of scientists who are now speaking out in favor of seeking personal transcendence.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 NOTHING NEW HERE, BUT TARG IS A PIONEER 13 janvier 2007
Par Theresa Welsh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Russell Targ has a fascinating background, as one of the original founders of the government Remote Viewing program. Back in the 1970s, he and Hal Puthof put together experiments in psychic vision that very much interested the US military. Both men were at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) and got government contracts to test "viewers" - psychics who could see events and places ("targets) in their mind. They developed a set of protocols for these experiments and successfully demonstrated that this could be done. In Limitless Mind, Russell Targ discusses those experiments, which were to influence his later work and eventually become once again his main profession. At present, he sponsors seminars on remote viewing, often working with Dr. Jane Katra, with whom he has written several books.

This book is a combination of information on how anyone can try remote viewing, and how work with remote viewing led the author to related activities, mainly distant healing. Targ repeatedly explains that remote viewing is not specifically a spiritual activity, but it led him in the direction of further inquiry into the nature of consciousness and that led him into spirituality. He came to believe that man is more than his material body, that consciousness transcends our physical senses. Consciousness can move beyond place and even beyond time to actually take in remote locations and events. Targ became interested in how healers can affect the bodily health of another person, noting that many can affect people who are in a distant location, without seeing or touching them. How is this possible, unless consciousness is not local?

Information on how to do remote viewing is available in other books and websites, but Targ's preferred methods all involve working with a partner. He is insistent that anyone can do remote viewing, although some viewers are more talented than others. Targ worked with some of the best, and he writes about them in this book: Ingo Swann, Pat Price, Hella Hamid, to mention a few. Targ and Puthof had all the facilities of SRI and full time to work at remote viewing experiments, while, for most people, finding a partner and designing and carrying out workable experiments is going to tax their time and resources. Like other learned skills, remote viewing takes practice.

The book reproduces some of the more famous drawings of the SRI viewers along with pictures of the actual targets. I found most of them familiar because I've seen them reproduced in other books. And, yes, they are amazing and do indicate the validity of remote viewing.

I was looking for more theory on what these experiments tell us about ourselves, but I found Targ's discussion rather disjointed and felt his topics wandered. In addition to covering how to do remote viewing and telling us about his experiences with healing and psychic diagnosis, he also writes about his daughter, Dr. Elizabeth Targ, who passed away at too young an age. I found his tribute to her very touching, and it is clear she was a remarkable person. Elizabeth Targ was a scientist who sometimes worked with her father and he certainly credits her for her contributions to the field of psychic research.

Targ refers to many teachers and guides who have helped him develop psychic skills and spiritual awareness. It seems his early work, pioneering a field he regards as scientific research but which others often ridicule, has led him to question most mainstream ways of thinking. Ridicule can be a significant stimulus to examine the reality of what others have called "consensus consciousness." Or, to put it another way, just because most people believe something - it ain't necessarily so. But again, Targ's personal acquaintance with so many practitioners of alternative systems of thought is unusual, and most of us are just left with our books and an occasional conversation with a like-minded individual. Targ actually quit his job as a scientist for a major corporation, a gutsy move for sure, that has let him immerse himself in an atmosphere of alternative thought.

There wasn't anything new in this book, but it is a good introduction to remote viewing and it drives home the point that everyone can expand their consciousness. The personal stories from a pioneer in the field of psychic research make the book a worthwhile read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Introduction to the Limitless Possibilities of Mind and Spirit 13 mai 2006
Par Daniel J. Neiman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I found Limitless Mind to be an exceptional introduction to the study of consciousness and psychic abilities. The book describes many studies relating to fascinating topics such as remote viewing, distance/spiritual healing, precognition, and the fluidity of time and space. It describes the theory that time and space are "nonlocal." This theory suggests that it is an illusion that we occupy a specific area of space at a specific time. But in fact "each region of space-time contains information about every other point in space-time" (8). This is to "suggest that all of space-time is available to your consciousness, right where you are" (5). Or in other words "the whole universe is in some way enfolded in everything, and that each thing is enfolded in the whole" (8). And this would explain the phenomena of remote-viewing where a person describes a place or an object from a distance in which that person could have no sensory perception of the object. In remote viewing you're simply clearing your mind of all the "mental noise" (thoughts, memories, sounds, etc...) constantly running through your head thereby tapping into that part of you that is connected with the universe. Then by focusing your attention on a particular place or object you can access any point in space-time and bring it to your awareness.

However remote viewing is only one area the book touches on. It also delves into how you can use this power for intuitive medical diagnosis, spiritual healing, and most importantly discovering who you are.

Filled with scientific research studies supporting his claims, helpful guides to using these hidden abilities yourself, and written in an easy to read style this book is a must have for anyone interested in expanding their awareness and discovering who they really are!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting, but Not Quite What I Expected... 4 octobre 2005
Par D. Buxman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book left me with a vague feeling of unease. It was as if I were on the edge of a great enlightenment and then...the book ended. There is some interesting material on Remote Viewing, but you should note that you need at least one partner to practice for the most part. Since this is not a topic of much interest in the Midwest, I don't think I'll be able to practice much.

I purchased this book because I was looking for a scientific examination of psychic experiences. I got some of what I was looking for, but I also got a lot of personal stories and anecdotes that were interesting, but not necessarily enlightening. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it as an introduction to the techniques for Remote Viewing. If you are looking for a more broad-ranging work, try "The Field," by Lynne McTaggart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remote Viewing with Your Heart 3 février 2005
Par Simeon Hein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Russell Targ's latest book is a broad-ranging, indepth coverage of remote viewing and nonlocal consciousness. As one of the original RV researchers, working with natural psychics such as Pat Price and Ingo Swann to develop standardized remote viewing protocols and testing procedures, Targ knows his way around the subject matter in all its aspects. From some of the early RV experiments in the 1970's to the most recent studies in distant healing, some of which were conducted by his daughter, Elizabeth, Targ covers a whole gamut of related consciousness topics, including after-death communications and the incredible research of F.W. Meyers. But most importantly, Targ has an important message for us: to quiet our noisy minds, transcend our personal stories, expand our awareness, and merge with the larger consciousness of the universe. It is a timely message and one that stands out throughout the all of his recent writings: a legacy of decades of research into the nature of consciouness. I recommend Limitless Mind for readers who are new to the subject and also to more experienced researchers who want to be reminded of what a vast subject area the study of nonlocal consciousness encompasses. Overall, this book is a gem. (Dr. Simeon Hein is the author of Opening Minds: A Journey of Extraordinary Encounters, Crop Circles, and Resonance (Mount Baldy Press, Inc.))
