A New Science of the Paranormal: The Promise of Psychical Research (New)

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.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)

Limited to 800 copies

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
