Limitless Mind: a Guide to Remote Viewing


Targ, Russell. Limitless Mind: a Guide to Remote Viewing. New World Lib., dist. by Publishers Group West. Mar. 2004. c.240p. ISBN 1-57731-413-1. pap. $14.95. SELF-HELP

According to ESP researcher Targ (Miracles of Mind: Exploring Nonlocal Consciousness and Spiritual Healing), humankind’s natural psychic abilities are simply “another way to look for the experience of love.” Drawing on significant research and many interesting (but ultimately pointless) anecdotes, be seeks to explain the scientific and spiritual value of remote viewing, i.e., the ability to receive and communicate information intuitively, and to show readers how to develop it. Precognition, seeing objects, intuitive diagnosis of illnesses, and distant healing are poorly explained, as is the relationship between remote viewing and spirituality. The trouble is, Targ spends too much time defending his profession and not enough explaining key concepts. Lacking guidance and how-to, this book (reminiscent of, and oddly less informative than, David Ambrose’s novel Superstition) will do little to move remote viewing into the mainstream. For special collections only.
