He stated that the book avoided mentioning the evidence of fraud in parapsychology.
Good replied, saying that most readers would not arrive at the same interpretation of what Radin had written noting that readers would be surprised to learn that by "more than a billion trillion", Radin meant more than ". Further, Good noted that the file drawer effect does not account for intentional fraud, as was very probably the case with prominent ESP proponents such as Samuel Soal , nor is there any real means of estimating such "intellectual, observational or ethical lapses" within ESP.
Stenger gave a criticism of The Conscious Universe that aligned with Good's arguments that Radin did not perform the file-drawer analysis correctly, made fundamental errors in his calculations, and ignored non-paranormal explanations for the data. Carroll stated that Radin had ignored "the many hoaxes and frauds that dot the landscape in the history of psi research. The first claim in relation to evidence is that Psi effects are present above chance to a probability of to 1, from a meta-analysis of Forced choice recognition in the parapsychological literature.

No color. Possibly covered with a glass dome. If it was full of soup [the agent] would be the size of a large dumpling! Coming to Terms with Quantum Non-local Reality.

Back Matter Pages About this book Introduction This discussion resulted from a dialogue which began some seven years ago between a physicist who specializes in astrophysics, general relativity, and the foundations of quantum theory, and a student of cultural history who had done post-doctoral work in the history and philosophy of science.
Both of us at that time were awaiting the results of some experiments being conducted under the direction of the physicist Alain Aspect at the University of Paris-South.
