About Shelton Ranasinghe

Shelton Ranasinghe is a professional engineer. The early years of his career he worked in major civil engineering projects in Sri Lanka and Nigeria. Later he settled down in Australia and specialized in environmental engineering & management on contaminated site-remediation projects. His career in this field commenced in Australia and New Zealand, and later expanded to Canada, Mexico, UK and USA. He now lives in Ohio State in USA.

From a very young age he has been a keen follower of philosophy, religions, anthropology, nature and social behavior. The exposure he acquired living in five continents over a large part of his active working life combined with his temperament of reflection, has given him a unique and intimate understanding of the multi-hued canvas that is humanity. With the humility and very fine sense of balance endowed on him by his sympathetic view of various cultures, social behavior patterns and belief systems he has encountered, he now ventures to crystallize his thoughts. He has published a booklet on Buddhist philosophy named "Buddha Impetus to Primitive psyche" - an effort that can be described as frank, refreshingly unforced and thought provoking. His next effort is a work of science fiction titled "Heaven at SETI's Doorstep". Readers of this book will however perceive many complex overtones that elevate the scope of this book way above and beyond its albeit quite interesting sci-fi content.

Shelton also published an e-book titled "Self - A Delusion?" It presents evidence suggesting that the notion of `self' could arise from deluded cognition. It sources the results of cutting-edge scientific experiments by leading experts in neuropsychology and employs findings from the author's own experience to correlate them with simple examples from nature, prompting you to seek an answer to the question through scientific and metaphysical inquiry. Shelton’s fascinating hypothesis, explains how the make-up of the brain could be manipulating our conscious psyche to hamper deep inquiry into the entirety of our own cognitive process.
His book titled “The Phone Rang in the Middle of My Shower", explores the ideas of afterlife. It is a thought provoking novel; light and fun read, griping and focusing the attention of the reader continually. Death is undisputedly a common denominator for humanity; but is the soul the highest common factor or is there none? If you don't believe in an afterlife be ready for a great shake-up. If you do, an even greater one!

His latest sci-fi title is "Our Extraterrestrial Neighbors" and nonfiction title is "Thinking Explored".

Review by: James Jenkins on Sep. 30, 2017 :
This starts as story of discovery, this ok to read, but is in serious need of being edited, multiple typos.

The it it changes into a monologue about the natural evolutionary development of life on the Moon. It tries to sound authentic and plausible, but it just isn't (even in the most far flung science fiction "what if").
