ESP, poltergeists, hauntings, death-bed apparitions-scientific study of such phenomena is in complete disarray. The major laboratories have closed, and scientific journals have shown nothing new for decades. In fact, little progress in understanding the paranormal has been made in the past hundred years, despite widespread public interest. But, says author Lawrence LeShan, we know far more about psychic phenomena than is generally believed. It is time we accept its reality, just as people once accepted that the power of lightning could be harnessed in a light bulb-to their benefit! Psychic research holds tremendous promise, and, in spite of appearances, this promise is close to fulfilment. With fascinating stories of documented psychic events, Dr. LeShan describes that promise and how we can achieve it. Mainline science rejects the paranormal because it cannot be proven by the classical methods of controlled experiments. But, LeShan points out, sciences such as geology, astronomy, and anthropology cannot rely on laboratory testing for repeatable results, and they do quite well. Moreover, psi concerns consciousness, which is by definition nonquantitative. And in fact, many phenomena critically dismissed as paranormal are accepted in quantum physics as perfectly normal-like the ability of electrons to pass through solid matter. Psi researchers must stop acting like science's poor relations, limiting themselves to controlled experiments such as analyzing statistics of people guessing cards being flipped in the next room.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
