☀ Our Secret Powers - Terje Simonsen

Thank you for joining us on the Virtual Book Tour for Our Secret Powers: Telepathy, Clairvoyance and Precognition. A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal, a non-fiction parapsychology book by (, Pari Publishing, 388 pages).

"Superb survey of the paranormal... Although serious in content, it is written in a light, often humorous, style which is a delight to read. As someone who has myself made a lifelong study of the paranormal, I cannot recommend it highly enough." ~ fantasy author, Herbie Brennan

"Simonsen describes his book as "A travelogue from the twilight zone,"but he is far too modest. Our Secret Powers is a sprawling work, meticulously researched, in which the author deftly, and with engaging wit, pulls together the various strands of "psi"--telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition,telekinesis, and healing--and presents them for our consideration."
~ Pulitzer-prize winner, Teresa Carpenter

Is the paranormal normal?

Many readers will be surprised when learning that reputable scientists, among them several Nobel laureates, have claimed that telepathy is a reality. Their curiosity will increase when reading that Cleopatra's lost palace and Richard III's burial place were recovered by means of clairvoyance. And some will think it to be science fiction when finding out about Stargate--the espionage program where the American military and CIA engaged in the development of psychic spies!

Simonsen, a Norwegian historian of ideas, introduces an array of entertaining paranormal tales from history, archaeology, anthropology and psychology, and presents scientific research that has provided fascinating results. He argues that the stories we hear about telepathy, clairvoyance and precognition ought not to be dismissed as superstition

In step with spiritual and occult traditions, the author suggests that consciousness is not limited to our own head. Rather he thinks that all humans (and perhaps all living beings) are linked together in a "Mental Internet.' Via this network we may exchange 'telepathic emails' with friends and family and make clairvoyant 'downloads' of information. Thus perhaps what we usually call 'supernatural' is completely natural but little understood communications via this Mental Internet?

Our Secret Powers gives us an engaging, entertaining and informative analysis of a controversial subject and would make an excellent travel companion.
