Russell Targ, a laser physicist, cofounded the remote viewing research program at SRI International. He is coauthor Mind Reach, The Mind Race, Miracles of Mind, The Heart of the Mind, and The End of Suffering. He is author of Limitless Mind and The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities. He is also coeditor of the anthology, Mind At Large.

Here he describes the process that led to his engagement with the field of parapsychology. During his childhood he was fascinated by stage magic. As a teenager he became familiar with the card-guessing ESP experiments of J.B. Rhine. Later, as a physicist, he began to build equipment for the purpose of testing and training both ESP and psychokinesis. Eventually, his work came to the attention of NASA.
