Precognition, telepathy, and clairvoyance are impossible within the common-sense framework of sensory reality, yet the body of evidence confirming these experiences is overwhelming. LeShan shows how three radically different groups -- mediums, mystics, and physicists -- have all been working toward a description of reality that is essentially and strikingly similar.

Review: The Medium, the Mystic, and the Physicist: Toward a General Theory of the Paranormal

User Review  - James M. Madsen, MD - Goodreads

This book complements LeShan's Alternate Realities (qv) in discussing the nature of several possible definitions or states of reality. It's a great metaphysical ride and far less New Agey than subsequent books on the subject. Read full review
