Synopsis: Examines unexplained phenomena in psychiatric and psychological terms rather than occult terms

· Explores how the unconscious mind manifests paranormal phenomena

· Shows how the cerebellum--the seat of the unconscious--is the source of these energies, subpersonalities, and manifestations

· Identifies our neglected “Neanderthal” subconscious as responsible for the rising incidence of paranormal happenings

Alien abduction, poltergeist attacks, incubi, succubi, split and multiple personalities, possessions, precognition, spontaneous combustion--the list of phenomena not just unexplained but ignored by mainstream science seems endless. Yet the key to the origin of all these manifestations lies deep within our own brains.

In The Origins of Psychic Phenomena, Stan Gooch explores the functioning of the dream-producing part of the brain--the cerebellum--and how the unconscious mind is able to externalize itself. The cerebellum is the physical seat of the unconscious and was once equal to or even superior to the cerebrum as essential to our functioning. In modern times it has been shunted into the subliminal, yet the cerebellum continues to process our worldly experiences and reveals its concerns in misunderstood, often frightening, manifestations. Gooch explains that Neanderthal Man possessed a much larger cerebellum than Cro-Magnon Man and posits that the modern repression of the cerebellum’s role in our consciousness has given rise to these supernatural phenomena.

From the Back Cover: PARAPSYCHOLOGY

The Origins of Psychic Phenomena is an interesting read no matter where you stand on belief in extraordinary phenomena. The field remains fraught with mysteries, especially those dealing with succubi and incubi.”
--Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., author of The Spiritual Universe

“I have long felt that Stan Gooch is one of the most brilliant paranormal investigators of the past century.”
--Colin Wilson, author of The Occult and The Outsider

STAN GOOCH began his career as a highly regarded psychological researcher by exploring the evolution and history of the brain in his books Total Man and Personality and Evolution. His subsequent research on paranormal influences and Neanderthal culture appear in his books The Dream Culture of the Neanderthals, The Double Helix of the Mind, and The Secret Life of Humans. He lives in Wales.
