Entangled Minds by Dean Radin.

Rather than use my own words to summarise the various types of psi experiment Dean Radin investigated in his book, I have taken the liberty of copying two pages from Chapter 14 of his book, where he does that for us. This outline is simply meant to give a bit more information, and any serious investigator should buy the book, and read it page by page.

THE STATE OF THE ART

After a century of increasingly sophisticated investigations and more than a thousand controlled studies with combined odds against chance of 10 to the power of 104 to 1 (Table 14-1), there is now strong evidence that some psi phenomena exist.1 While this is an impressive statistic, all it means is that the outcomes of these experiments are definitely not due to coincidence. We’ve considered other common explanations like selective reporting and variations in experimental quality, and while those factors do moderate the overall results, there can be little doubt that overall something interesting is going on. It seems increasingly likely that as physics continues to refine our understanding of the fabric of reality, a theoretical outlook for a rational explanation for psi will eventually be established.

1 A meta-meta-analysis of the classes of experimental evidence considered in this book. The number of studies listed, and the odds against chance, are adjusted for potential selective reporting biases using the trim and fill algorithm. The combined results indicate that these experimental results are unlikely to be due to coincidence or dumb luck. Something else is going on. Genuine psi offers an increasingly plausible interpretation.
