Sinossi

Now in paperback, the droll memoir by a world-class physicist that includes recollections of his involvement with pioneering laser research, encounters with many of the most recognizable literary, cultural, and entertainment figures of the 20th century, and his role in teaching ESP techniques to the CIA--a real-life X-Files saga.

Russll Targ is a Zelig-like character. His story is an idiosyncratic journey through the highways and byways of American intellectual, scientific, and cultural life in 20th century. His father (the long-time editor-in-chief at Putnam) acquired The Godfather on the basis of an outline scribbled on the back of a napkin. His mother was the first press agent of the fan dancer Sally Rand. His step-mother is the legendary literary agent Rosalind Targ. He was married for thirty years to the sister of the infamous chess master Bobby Fischer. He briefly dated Henny Youngman’s cousin. He attended college with Alan Alda’s wife, Arlene. He was part of Ayn Rand’s study group in the 1950s--along with economist Alan Greenspan. He was a pioneer in laser research. He spent many years developing air-borne laser wind sensors for Lockheed and NASA. He co-founded the Stanford Research Institute remote viewing program--which was funded by the CIA--and was instrumental in tracking Soviet and Chinese weapon installations during the Cold War. And, he is a legally blind motorcyclist—who happens to be a Buddhist.

This is a fascinating memoir by a first-class intellect; the story of a physicist who has pushed the boundaries of siceince to explory the realms of parapsychology, spirituality, and the unexplained.

5.0 su 5 stelle Expanding your mind through great books 6 marzo 2017
Di Jersey Girl at Heart- - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book was recommended to me by an acquaintance who is a physicist, who thought I might find it interesting. As the daughter of a physicist, I thought I'd give it a try. I was worried it might be dull or hard to read, but nothing is farther from the truth. I actually couldn't put it down. It's very interesting, & full of wonderful Woody-Allenesque style humor and interesting facts. And it leans over into the metaphysical and spiritual arena in its subject matter, something you might not imagine when you think of what a typical "scientist" might write. But then, Russell Targ is no "typical" scientist. I've loaned the book to a friend, who is a very "conscious" person. He incorporates the practices of psychology and meditation into his own life, and has also found the book entertaining and educational. It's a great read and will open up your world, if you allow it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Reminiscences & Conclusions from a Life Being Well Observed 24 giugno 2011
Di M. D. Austin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This Book:

The reference to Zelig in the book's description is apropos, and I was glad to find it wasn't marketing bull manure. There are lots of great stories here from a guy at the top of his game, and really nothing with which you could take issue. Targ's not selling any ideas here that you have to buy; the research and evidence from his career are presented in other publications.

For me, "Do You See What I See?" was a fabulous book with many surprises. Not the least of which were these two, paraphrasing from Targ's writing: 1.) You're not your business card or personal story, and 2.) he believes that our species has evolved as far as it's going to, and now our business is about consciousness. To have seen a man who used to be all about military RV write such a thing is cause for pause and reflection. Although Targ wasn't an enlisted man, the massive organizations for which he worked literally wear their jobs and ranks in full view on their sleeves.

There are also pleasant, personal anecdotes from Targ's earliest life, while he grew-up marinated in the environment of famous authors who worked with his publishing father. He drops thoughtful, funny and surprising one-liners with some regularity. Probably my favorite was, "Indeed, at this stage of my life, I am much more interested in questioning answers, than my previous specialty of answering questions." Having been afflicted with that attitude most of my life, his writing feels like that of a kindred soul.

The style of this book is rambling, through Targ's stream of awareness. Since eidetic memory isn't one of my skills, I'll go back and revisit the sections which spoke to me. This is obviously not a textbook so one shouldn't expect it read like one. There are many sections which I found touching or amusing, especially Chapter 14. If you'd enjoy "sitting by a master" and hearing them hold forth about real life experience, with real mistakes and triumphs, this would be a lovely read for you. Although I do get the feeling Targ would deflect the label "master."

My Introduction to Targ:

What interested me about Russell Targ's work is *who* he is, because that has informed and directed his now legendary work. Targ is one of the men who initiated the remote viewing (RV) programs for the U.S. military. The RV programs eventually led to colorful or dark fictions like those contained in the movies, The Men Who Stare at Goats or Suspect Zero. So this book has been my pleasant introduction to Targ's compendium of personal and professional experience. Happily but unexpectedly, I had found myself on a June Sunday standing next to Targ in a sparsely-populated conference hallway of an organization he co-founded, the International Remote Viewing Association. He and Paul Elder (Eyes of an Angel) were examining and photographing a drawing Paul made of an object Targ uses for RV.

I was interested in asking Targ a question about a project on which I'm working; to my pleasant surprise he invited me to sit with him at lunch. Targ was polite, direct and had droll humor in conversation. He even asked my opinion of one of IRVA's seemingly failed presenters. If you've co-founded the organization at which the presentation takes place, you're allowed that latitude. I hadn't seen the presentation, so I had the good fortune to answer that I couldn't have an opinion about it.

I asked Targ why he got into remote viewing and was simply interested in what intrigues him. In the years I've known one of Targ's beloved friends, Stephan A. Schwartz, I hadn't delved into Targ's now legendary work because I didn't always agree with the uses to which the work was put. So I intended this published bio to be my first look at what Targ thinks about himself and his work.

5.0 su 5 stelle LIMITLESS MIND and DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? Easy reads with mind expanding results 4 gennaio 2012
Di The Psych - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A great book but doesn't read as well as it would if the reader has completed one of Targ's other books. Suggest "Limitless Minds" as a good start. It is an exciting and challenging view expounding the clear, scientific basis of the author's spiritual journey. Then read "Do you see what I see?"for the personal side of the man and the two books make sense of science, spirituality and personal growth in the human frame. Particularly relevant to those seeking to understand how Eastern philosophy has been successfully added to Western need, providing clear guidance for making personal decisions.

Both books highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Deeply moving: worth several readings 28 febbraio 2010
Di Henry E. Altenberg - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A truly outstanding autobiography, packed with choice morsels of both science and spirituality. The author's story of scientific research in remnote viewing, as well as other stories of scienitific research along with references to spiritual studies gives full credence to the unity of human exsitence, and the connectedness of all human beings. Having read it twice within a month, it will be a source book for me to explore other writers and subjects, such as buddhism, and quantum physics.

4.0 su 5 stelle Do You See What I See? 19 novembre 2009
Di Hubble Daughter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Excellent book on the memiors on the man who began experiments on Lasers,remote viewing. It really peaked my interest as my late father worked at NASA when the 1st laser was being built. After a few beers he talked about great things, in the making, in Arizona/New Mexico area. Of course all the things he mentioned have come to pass but it makes me wonder what else he knew that is mentioned in the book by Russell Targ? I read another book by him and it teased my mind as well.
