Hardback, 1st edition. In the world of everyday existence, the 5 senses reign, but their powers are sharply limited. We see the universe in glimpses through narrow portals, acquiring our knowledge by sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. But what if knowledge has wider gateways and thresholds? What if, beyond vision, humans have another way of seeing? All over the world, from time immemorial, some people have been called gifted with what is known as second sight, the third eye, the sixth-sense - powers of the mind that seem to bypass the usual sensory channels and transcend mundane reality. Shamans have communed with their gods, saints have seen visions, oracles have foretold the deaths of kings. And, from time to time, ordinary people have felt a moment's slippage into the inexplicable and uncanny. In this book, a scientist bears clairvoyant witness to a distant fire, a doctor peers into a vanished past in a moment of retrocognition, a mother hears, telepathically, her child's inaudible cries. For years, such experiences have been claimed and studied. But they have not, as yet, been fully explained. Profusely Illus. in b/w and colour + Bibliog. and Index. 160pp. 4to. h/back. Dw not required. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas. As new.
