I, Paranormal

Rated 3.50/5 based on 2 reviews
There are so many short essays on the Paranormal here, it's phenomenal! I have a simple approach. Taking an initial sceptical stance, I see what's left; and from there I build a new Theory of Everything where the Paranormal becomes essential to us and the universe. So if you like my words, I'm behind you. Spooky.

1955 (Yorkshire, England) – I am born (Damn! Already been done). ‘Twas the best of times … (Oh well).
I was actually born in the year of Einstein's death, close to Scrooge's Counting House. It doesn't mean anything but it sounds good. As for my education, I left school at 15 and have had no formal education since. Hence, I'm self-taught.

From a family of newsagents, at 18 I did a Dick Whittington and went off to London, only to return to pretend to be Charlie and work in a chocolate factory.
When I was ten I was asked what I wanted to be. I said soldier, writer and Dad. I never thought of it for years – having too much fun, such as a time as lead guitarist in a local rock band – but I served nine years in the RAF, got married and had seven kids. I realized my words had been precognitive when, at age 27, I came down with M.E. – a condition I’ve suffered ever since – and turned my attention to writing.
Indeed, as I realized that no expert could tell me what was wrong with me, I began my quest to find out why. Little did I realize it would last decades and take me through the entire history of knowledge, leaving me with the certainty that our knowledge systems are inadequate.
****
My non-fiction is based on P-ology, a thought process I devised to work with patterns of knowledge, and designed to be a bedfellow to specialization. A form of Rational Holism, it seeks out areas the specialist may have missed. I work from encyclopaedias and introductory volumes in order to gain a grasp of many subjects and am not an expert in anything, but those patterns keep forming. Hence, I do not deal in truth, but ideas, and cover everything from politics to the paranormal.
When reading my work I ask only: do I make sense? Of course, an expert would say: a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I agree. And an expert has so little knowledge of everything.
I also write novels and Flash Fiction in all genres.

This was such a change from his delightful murder related collage, though you can see Anthony's breadth of awareness and appreciation of variation in both. I agree with the other evaluation where references might have been nice, but don't feel it as necessary as that was not the scope the author chose to present...for free, by the way. This was not a light and easy read, but it was most thought provoking.

To be sure, have many interesting views on these topics. But, I would've like to see more in the way of citing sources: The studies mentioned in your book and research already done on these topics are but two. Overall, I consider these great topics of discussion. Great idea.
