"A few centuries ago," said Bill Roll, "natural science museums threw out their collections of meteorites, because astronomers were convinced there were no stones in the sky.  And it wasn't too long ago that physicists asserted that the atom was the smallest bit of matter.  Now there is a whole science called quantum physics based on the study of subatomic particles.  It's incredible the number of 'miracles' we accept today without question that yesterday's teachers of science told us were impossible." When I considered that statement, I realized he was right.  There was a time when the idea of the telephone seemed impossible, yet today few people are without one.  The same holds true of a radio.  And as a child I would have found the concept of television too ridiculous even to contemplate, yet now I take it for granted that, at the punch of a button, a blank screen will come alive with all sorts of activity. If we can accept our ability to communicate with friends from a distance through the use of telephones and radios, and the fact that a picture can be broken into bits and transported invisibly through space to reassemble itself in our living room, why should we find it hard to accept the possibility that a thought might be transmitted from one mind to another as in telepathy? --Lois Duncan, from Psychic Connections: A Journey into the Mysterious World Of Psi Past our ability to obtain information by using the five basic senses--sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste--lies...what? Psychic Connections: A Journey into the Mysterious World of Psi is a nonfiction work about parapsychology which introduces readers to the fascinating world of ESP, or extrasensory perception.  Based on laboratory research and documented case histories, it addresses such subjects as astral projection (out-of-body experiences); NDEs (near-death experiences); apparitions and hauntings; poltergeists; psychokinesis; channeling and mediumship; clairvoyance; levitation; precognition; telepathy; psychic healing; and practical applications of ESP, such as the use of psychic detectives by law enforcement agencies. Containing photographs, a glossary, an index, and a list of sources, Psychic Connections is the basic book on parapsychology.  Compelling and thought-provoking, it belongs on every thinking person's bookshelf.
