More About The Super Natural by Whitley Strieber; Jeffrey J. Kripal
 
 
 
Overview
Two of today's maverick authors on anomalous experience present a perception-altering and intellectually thrilling analysis of "why the paranormal is real, " but radically different from what is conventionally
understood.
Whitley Strieber ("Communion") and Jeffrey J. Kripal (J. Newton Rayzor professor of religion at Rice University) team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences.
Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors--one the man who popularized alien abduction and the other a renowned scholar and "renegade advocate for including the paranormal in religious studies" ("The New York Times")--deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of "why" the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction but a vital and authentic aspect of life.
Their suggestion? That all kinds of "impossible" things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are not impossible at all: rather, they are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful, and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures, which are what really make these things seem "impossible."
"The Super Natural" considers that the natural world is actually a "super natural world"--and all we have to do to see this is to change the lenses through which we are looking at it and the languages through which we are presently limiting it. In short: The extraordinary exists if we know how to look at and think about it."
