The impossible happens - but can science explain it?
Ultimum Mysterium attempts to explain mysterious phenomena from a new perspective.
In Section I: “The Puzzle”, the author sets out and examines a number of reportedly true cases of such activity, both from history and from more recent times, which are so bizarre that even current scientific theories are unable to offer an explanation.
In Section II: “The Physics”, the author reviews the latest scientific discoveries (mainly in physics, but also in neurological research) with a view to seeing whether these can offer any kind of explanation to the strange phenomena described in Section I.
In Section III: “The Philosophy”, the author examines the underlying philosophical issues to see what may be possible in terms of a scientific explanation. He argues the universe is what it is, regardless of what we may think about its workings. If the impossible happens, so be it. We need keep an open mind on the subject and embrace the bizarre, but fascinating world of the impossible.
The author of this book takes on a fairly wide gambit of "unscientific" subjects - ie. clairvoyance, telepathy, astrology, eschatology, etc. - as a "fringe scientist". I like the way the book divides the subject matter into Shamanic, Scriptural and Scientific beliefs, and how it divides the sections into Puzzles, Physics and Philosophy. The conclusions reached in this book provides an original take on the issue. It's a thumbs-up on this book from me, and I look forward to reading more from this author, and hearing how his model of how the universe operates is expanded to explain more "glitches in reality". I think this book will appeal to all sorts of people, including those who believe in the supernatural and those who don't, as it tries to reconcile science with the supernatural. ~ The Inspira Group
