From the back of the book:

We Can Know the Nature of Reality

Our understanding of the nature of reality is undergoing an important shift from mostly supposition and belief to actionable facts based on important developments in parapsychology and transcommunication. This means the emergence of new tools which are helping us better understand our nature and the nature of the world we live in.

To be sure this shift involves theory and research, but it ultimately comes down to who we are and what we can become. The best way to describe this future paradigm is in terms of mindfulness and the middle way of mindful living. This is not the mindfulness of living in the moment based on the belief that we are our body. It is the mindfulness of experiencing life from the perspective of your immortal self.

This book is written to show you the evidence of survival and the implications of that evidence as an important model for future research. While your personal progression depends a lot on understanding the evidence, the community sharing your journey is equally important. To help you learn where to look for help, a comprehensive survey of our paranormalist community is included.

Mindfulness can lead to important growth in your ability to work with nature, to sense the subtle fields influencing your life and more confidently commune with your loved ones on the other side. But it is important to understand how this paradigm shift is changing our understanding of the phenomena of transcommunication and interconnectedness in our community. The last part of this book includes a comprehensive discussion of the phenomena, including EVP-ITC, healing intention and mediumship transcommunication phenomena.

Known Errors

Please let me know about errors you find so that I can prepare a second edition.

Errors fixed in January 2017 Update (not all listed)

  • Versus is spelled verses in the book.
  • The Gale Encyclopedia of Occultism & Parapsychology reference is at 195, not 55. Error is on page 123.

Found since january 2017:

Pareidolia: A form of apophenia [424] (seeing patterns where there are none) in which the person finds meaning in images and sounds when there in is none.

Community – Trojan Horse Organization, Poorly managed Expectations (Page 227) It is anomalistic psychology, not anomalous psychology.

Discourse 3: Organizing Principles — Understanding. Second sentence: Experience becomes understanding as personality aligns personal reality with local reality. Should be: Experience becomes understanding as a person aligns personal reality with local reality.  Explanation: It is ultimately personality, but a person is personality entangled with a human and the perspective is from our conscious self. Conscious self is the source of intention to make changes based on the prime imperative to gain understanding inherited from personality.
