Louis Proud, author of Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions, stopped by to share with us a piece he wrote.
About the book:
This exciting and controversial new title shows how all things, from the mundane to the mysterious, are tied together by a vast--and largely invisible--electromagnetic web. It examines ESP, poltergeist disturbances, psychokinesis, electric people, UFOs, and other paranormal phenomena from an electromagnetic perspective. It also reveals how the artificial, alien energies we've been introducing into our environment shape the way we experience the paranormal.
Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions explores such questions as:
- Do human beings possess a magnetic "sixth sense" similar to that of homing pigeons?
- Are artificial electromagnetic fields, such as those emitted by power lines, gradually destroying our health?
- Can being struck by lightning or suffering a severe electric shock result in the development of psychic abilities?
- What do scientists make of the fact that ball lightning can pass through walls, enter rooms by squeezing through keyholes, and display seemingly intelligent behavior?
