ESP, poltergeists, hauntings, death-bed apparations scientific study of such phenomena is in complete disarrary. 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! Psychical research holds tremendous promise, and, in spite of appearances, this promise is close to fulfilment.
With fascinating stores of documented psychic events, Dr LeShan describes that promise and how we can achieve it. He explains why psi research has hit an impasse and how it can be incorporated into the mainstream of intellectual and scientific life. In the current literature, his is the only serious and realistic hope of doing so.
LeShan outlines the principes of making a real study of the large, exciting events clairvoyance and precognition; mediumship and spirit controls; psychic healing that would bring mainline science into and revitalise the whole field. And the issue is not just academic, he says. We desperately need a new concept of humanity if we are to stop killing each other and poisoning our only planet. The old, materialistic world view has not worked. Psychic research, however, can change our sense of reality itself in a positive way that does offer us a new and more hopeful picture of ourselves and of the world.
