Part of the groundswell in the exploration of consciousness in the 1960s and 1970s, this work relates field theory to altered states of consciousness and compares the close similarities in the world views of mediums, mystics and physicists. Psychologist and author Lawrence LeShan brought scientific method to bear in his study of "facts that do not fit", such as clairvoyance and precognition. This exploration shook his belief in everyday reality and led him to postulate other states of consciousness that he called "Clairvoyant Reality" and "Transpsychic Reality". These other realities operated on their own laws, which allowed not only clairvoyance (as documented by LeShan's work with the famous medium Eleanor Garret) but also knowledge of future events and the ability to heal even at great distances. Included as an appendix is LeShan's essay on "Human Survival on Biological Death", in which he seeks to give the issues surrounding life after death a new context and a fresh perspective. This volume should be of interest to the many people today who seek to understand the full human potential in a world where everyday reality merely offers a starting place from which to journey.
