PLEASE CHECK THE TAB, “Are You Afraid of the Next Life” for David Lorimer’s top book recommendations into survival of consciousness and psi research. As soon as I figure out the best way to transfer information from that tab to this tab, I will do it! I’m still rather unfamiliar with the workings of WordPress.
In the meantime, I have one BIG recommendation for all of you interested in great books on this topic:
Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century
Edward Kelly, et. al.
Here is the amazon.com book description:
“Current mainstream opinion in psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind holds that all aspects of human mind and consciousness are generated by physical processes occurring in brains. Views of this sort have dominated recent scholarly publication. The present volume, however, demonstrates_empirically_that this reductive materialism is not only incomplete but false. The authors systematically marshal evidence for a variety of psychological phenomena that are extremely difficult, and in some cases clearly impossible, to account for in conventional physicalist terms. Topics addressed include phenomena of extreme psychophysical influence, memory, psychological automatisms and secondary personality, near-death experiences and allied phenomena, genius-level creativity, and ‘mystical’ states of consciousness both spontaneous and drug-induced. The authors further show that these rogue phenomena are more readily accommodated by an alternative ‘transmission’ or ‘filter’ theory of mind/brain relations advanced over a century ago by a largely forgotten genius, F. W. H. Myers, and developed further by his friend and colleague William James. This theory, moreover, ratifies the commonsense conception of human beings as causally effective conscious agents, and is fully compatible with leading-edge physics and neuroscience. The book should command the attention of all open-minded persons concerned with the still-unsolved mysteries of the mind.”
