An expanded framework of space, time, and consciousness that explains how these phenomena "work" and compliment one another in a larger reality. A legitimate theory, compatible with modern physics, by an independent scholar in the field of dimensions of space and space-time.

The basic premise here is that we (and literally everything else) are 4th dimensional entities intersecting with a 3 dimensional world. A profound correlary to this is: just because we no longer intersect does not mean that we no longer exist.
The author addresses the subject on all levels- subatomic physics, cosmology, consciousness, and "unexplainable" phenomenon. His tie-in with the "perennial philosophy" is especially elegant. Of course, if you prefer hard science, then the revelation that Cerenkov radiation represents an "optic boom" analogous to a sonic boom is worth the price of the book- at least to me it was.
Not only is a tight case made for the existance of a 4th dimension made, but a reason and a purpose is stated for why we are just now becoming aware of it in significant numbers- survival pressure and evolutionary response. It is pointed out that on almost every level ours is a threatened civilization, indeed a threatened planet. 4th dimensional perception results in an expanded consciousness that transcends petty materialism and leads to a spirit of unity and interconnectedness (since everything IS really connected to a greater whole.) More importantly, it represents somewhere to exist if we do manage to render this planet uninhabitable.
This is the most significant book that I have reviewed in years- perhaps ever. I've read just about everything of significance in the bibliography. The author knows what he is talking about.
This is the author's point - that these phenomena cannot really be understood separately, only together as parts of a larger extra dimensional WHOLE. (What I found fascinating is the way the otherwise surreal nature of UFO abductions is understandable as beings of higher consciousness operating in a larger space-time.) There is a real sensibility and lucidity to the author's presentation. I see it as an important breakthrough in understanding. It certainly stands out to me.
The UFO/abduction phenomenon, NDEs and even God are touched upon, but never really given the depth or consideration they require. Instead of being asked if they would like to participate in this extra-dimensional theory business, and granted the respect of answering for themselves, they were apparently dragged along by the ear.
The whole issue was not treated in spiritual enough a manner for my liking. You cannot tackle the subject of God and inner being and still try and be acceptably scientific: you need to ditch the labcoat wholeheartedly at the doorstep and walk in blindfolded.
That said, a reasonable introduction to such things for those who are at a relevant level of "discovery". A bit lacking for those who have already made some headway though I feel.
