New Thinking Allowed

When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at

Non-Duality, a Conversation with Russell Targ

Russell Targ, a laser physicist, cofounded the remote viewing research program at SRI International. He is coauthor Mind Reach, The Mind Race, Miracles of Mind, The Heart of the Mind, and The End of Suffering. He is author of Limitless Mind and The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities. He is also coeditor of the anthology, Mind At Large.

Here he argues that, according to the Buddhist logic of Nagarjuna, Aristotle is wrong. A proposition can be both true and false at the same time. Most propositions are neither true nor false. He finds similar thinking in the wave-particle duality of modern physics, as well as in Kurt Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem. The unity of consciousness is also expressed in the findings of remote viewing. He describes the path of Dzogchen in Buddhism and claims that it is the most direct path to enlightenment.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980).
