Customer Review

on 6 September 2007
Not since reading Lyall Watson 30 years ago have I had such a paradigm-shifting and enjoyable read. My take on "occult phenomena" had been to honour the experience and try not to get sidetracked into theories and explanations as they are all either scientific blind alleys (Ghosts and UFOs contravene the laws of physics so therefore they do not exist regardless of your life-changing experience of them)or else wacko new-agey self-contradictory baloney about Atlantis and angels and The Akashic Record. By his own admission,Patrick Harpur does expound a grand theory of all occult phenomena but not a dogmatic one. His exploration fully honours the mischievous, shifting, dreamlike but nontheless powerful reality of all sorts of phenomena from the Loch Ness Monster to bogus social workers. Of course it raises as many questions as answers and I think that is rather the point - that we cannot pin these things down and they must remain phenomenological but that we ignore them and their messages at our peril....
