"Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), the organization founded in 1973 by Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, ScD, following his return to Earth from his historic 1971 walk on the moon. On the trip back Dr. Mitchell had an "epiphany", an experience of universal connectedness so profound that it altered his life from that point on. From the unique vantage point of the space capsule, the image of the earth floating gently in space radically altered his preconceived and pragmatic view of reality: What if reality was more complex than physical science had led us to believe? Might the study of "inner space" ? mind, spirit, and consciousness yield a more thorough understanding of the human experience and might this study expand our concepts abut the possibility for humanity?"
For those who don't have time to read Lynne McTaggert, Noetic Science essentially proves that magick exists. The reason why so few people have heard of it is that scientists have their own version of heresy. For centuries science has worked to prove that superstition, witchcraft, and even God doesn't exist. Now many scientists are claiming that all that is true and real. I think somebody actually managed to weight the human soul (the experiment is fictional, but it was described in such detail and so many real-world references that somebody must have done it for real). It turns out that we can alter the Universe with our minds, we are all connected by an invisible web of energy, and there is a God (however vague the description may be) and an afterlife. Dan Brown's _The Lost Symbol_ even reveals that many recent scientific discoveries (antimatter, quantum mechanics, etc.) existed in ancient religious beliefs.
