About this title


A rare and different approach to the paranormal -- one that applies scientific rigor and reveals what is true and what is not in telepathy, reincarnation, possession, and a host of other unusual phenomena. The author cares about truth, not dogma, so each fascinating case study gets thorough -- and fair -- consideration. Encounter celebrated mediums and psychics. Sift through tales of past lives recalled during hypnosis, as well as multiple personalities. Weigh the facts surrounding magic, entities, mind over matter, hysteria, stigmatics, and time travel. Photographs and drawings serve as potential evidence. Do you think that fuzzy image of a man in Combermere Abbey is a ghost? Were Eleonore Zugun's scars self-inflicted or caused by an angry spirit? "North provides an informed commentary on all facets of parapsychology, including life after death, mind over matter, ESP, and precognition...(He) seeks to explain all paranormal phenomena in a novel way. Taking a cue from Carl Jung, he postulates a collective, communal database of human memory that individuals can interact with, consciously or unconsciously....A speculative essay with a different perspective. -- Booklist. "(An) intelligent and measured volume..". -- Publishers Weekly.


Here is a look at various facets of the paranormal such as ghosts, telepathy, and telekinesis. The book is too brief to take more than a glimpse at each aspect of paranormal phenomena, but what sets it apart is Anthony North's attempt to prove not so much that each individual case is true, but simply that there is something underlying "reality" as we have come to define it, something yet to be classified by science but no less real than gravity.
