Reality’s Lenses: Science, Spirituality and the Paranormal Dimension - Part VI

I'm pleased to welcome Anne Whitaker, a new contributor to 'Phantoms and Monsters'. The following narrative is the final segment of a six part article.

6. Books: some doorways to the Source

Although it may seem unusual to offer a booklist at the end of a memoir, I decided to do so for the particular benefit of those readers who may just be embarking on an investigatory journey of those dimensions I have been exploring, and are looking for accessible and inspiring reading to start them off. I have confined my recommendations purely to selecting a few personal favourites from my own reading since 2002.

“The Arkana Dictionary of New Perspectives”
I found to be a succinct, accurate and invaluable guide to – Worldview, Science, Spirituality and Esoteric Thought, Psychology, The Paranormal, Medicine and Health and Society, Environment and Technology – to use Stuart Holroyd’s own categorisation of his very useful reference book. At the end of it is an extensive and wide-ranging bibliography which will further advance the journey!

Archie E. Roy
is the Professor Emeritus of Astronomy at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Present member and past-President of the UK’s Society for Psychical Research, also the Founding President of the Scottish Society for Psychical Research, he is an internationally known and respected psychical researcher. His two books included here will provide those seeking thoroughly researched case material on various facets of the paranormal with all they need to come to their own conclusions.

The booklists and references given in Professor Roy’s books, as well as offering a broad spectrum of contextual literature, give entry to an immensely well researched and detailed body of international evidence, validating the existence of paranormal phenomena, which has been accumulating world-wide since the Society for Psychical Research was founded in 1882 in Cambridge, England, UK by a group of eminent Victorian scientists and academics.

Enjoy your reading!
