Reviews of Opening MindsOpening
Minds: A Journey of Extraordinary Encounters, Crop Circles,and Resonance.
(Mount Baldy Press, ISBN 0971586306, August, 2002), by Simeon Hein, Ph.D.
- "A superb book from a man who is in sync with the next generation
of understanding natural sciences. This is one of the most fascinating
books on the Crop Circle Phenomenon I have read. One of those you need
to be comfortable before you open the pages. I could not put it down and felt
totally refreshed when I had read it. You 'know' before you have read but two
chapters that Dr. Simeon Hein is on a path which makes sense. Full of thought-provoking
ideas and concepts from start to finish. Truly a superb piece of work."
-- Colin Andrews, Crop Circle Researcher and Author (www.CropCircleInfo.com)
- "An excellent cross-discipline book that brings the
reader into a much bigger phenomenon than crop circles themselves. Dr. Hein explores
realities that may help make a better world, by understanding that there are no
simplistic answers to any of life's mysteries. A good read and a must for any
student of the strange and wonderful."
- " Simeon Hein's Opening Minds offers a profound
synthesis of many disciplines seeking to understand the not yet explainable. Hein's
discussion of physics, quantum consciousness research, remote viewing, chaos theory,
extraterrestrials, and crop circles is fascinating and provides a steady foundation
for his postulation that 'we do not need to analytically understand [crop circles]
for their magic to enter our lives'."
-- NAPRA Review,
- "Opening Minds is the 'Betty
Crocker' of crop circle books."
-- Judith Moore, author
of Crop Circles Revealed
- "I have been researching
the crop circles in England for a decade... My own findings, that the crop circles
are made by spiritually inspired humans, coincide strongly with Dr. Hein's --
and indeed that his ideas have greatly extended my own thinking.
is that what is flattening the crops is NOT where the mystery lies. There are
SO many other unanswered questions, from the balls of light that have been seen
by hundreds of people in the vicinity of crop circles (and close up by people
making crop circles!), and what I call the 'telepathic connection', as well as
many other bewildering things which are covered in Opening Minds. I
recommend the book as by far the most realistic AND enlightening on the subject
of the circles I have ever seen. Dr. Hein's discussion of UFOs and remote
viewing are equally insightful."
-- Peter Sorensen,
Crop Circle Researcher and Videographer
- "Was there really
a need for another book on the subject of Crop Circles I hear you saying?
Simeon Hein looks deeper and beyond the beautiful shapes that
have appeared in the fields worldwide. His book contains aspects, which other
authors have never really explored before, the latest scientific studies and literature,
physics and areas which previous writers on the subject have not considered in
the extraordinary phenomena of the crop circles.
As a bonus the book contains
beautiful colour plates of the formations, 'balls of light' and UFOs near the
His title Opening Minds should have that very effect
on any readers of his book. The topics covered in Simeon's book are most likely
what other authors of Crop Circle books have felt but never covered in their books.
They are all part of the mysteries of life. If you have the key you have the ability
to understand and Simeon Hein's book is that key."
-- David Kingston, Crop Circle Investigator since 1976.
