• The psychologist who helped pioneer chaos theory explains how holographic theory reveals the mind's unique power to predict the future.

• Shows why chaos theorists and futurists who claim we can't predict the future are wrong.

• Includes easy-to-follow methods to strengthen your powers of forecasting and precognition.

Just how the human brain works is a riddle that has perplexed humankind for ages. This fascinating probe into the workings of right brain/left brain, frontal brain functions, and the new discoveries of holographic theory reveals some exciting and unexpected answers. Using the findings of neurophysiology, psychology, parapsychology, and theoretical physics, Loye unlocks the mysteries of the mind and its unique powers of prediction, from hunches, ESP, and clairvoyance to our ability to actually predict the future.

With easy-to-follow methods, Loye shows us how to strengthen our powers of forecasting and precognition, and how, with the HCP (Hemispheric Consensus Prediction) Profile Test, to actually determine right brain/left brain dominance and interpret the results. By understanding the full powers of our "forecasting mind," we can better deal with the future--including our own personal and economic potential.

"An utterly fascinating and original book."
Ashley Montagu, author of Man and Aggression and The Elephant Man

"Undeniably fascinating!" 


"A well-researched and documented overview of the final frontier: the connection of mind and matter.  Twenty-first century stuff."
Fred Alan Wolf, author of Taking the Quantum Leap


Karl Pribram, author of Languages of the Brain

"A rich book. . . . Rich in original ideas, rich in information, and rich in breadth of subject matter.  It is the kind of book that I like to take home for weekend reading, and which always sends me off to the library to follow up on the many ideas."
ReVision Journal

"Not just another brain-mind book, though if it were it would easily be one of the best.  Highly recommended."
