No subject is bigger than reality itself, and nothing is more challenging to understand, since what counts as reality is undergoing continual revision and has been for centuries. The quest to pin down what's real and what's illusory is both philosophical and scientific, a metaphysical search for ultimate reality that goes back to the ancient Greeks. For the last 400 years, this search has been increasingly guided by scientists, who create theories and test them in order to define and redefine reality.

A mystical or sacred experience is one in which an individual reports contact with a transcendent reality - an encounter or union with the divine. Such experiences often involve arriving at some knowledge or insight previously unavailable to the individual. Many religious and mystical traditions see these experiences as revelations caused by divine agency, rather than an ordinary process of encountering higher-order realities of which humans are not ordinarily aware.
Across the world, millions of people have witnessed massive UFOs in our skies. They have not only seen the alien craft, but have experienced a phenomenon that utterly defies our current understanding of science and physics. The fact is there have been dozens - possibly hundreds - of UFOs that have crashed on planet Earth. Mankind has witnessed these crashes, communicated with the visitors, and even left our planet with them once they are able to return to their world. But the most shocking revelation of all is the reason why they come.
It's high time you question the myths that have been passed down over the centuries. Are these myths just myths, or is there a possibility of unexplained phenomenon around you? Science could not have possibly covered every bit of this universe, or even the planet for that matter. Are those who have witnessed these events actually crazy? Or have they actually encountered what you do not yet believe? Does science define everything around you? Or are these stories a cover for something bigger?
England is an ancient land steeped in history and tradition, filled with prehistoric ruins, majestic castles, and a countryside sculpted from millennia of human habitation.

Are you a self-confessed horror freak? Are there few things you love better than a good horror story to tell around a campfire or at parties? Let's face it, ghost stories make for great conversation. A little macabre, sure, but entertaining nevertheless. It is often difficult to explain what lives in the beyond, why certain paranormal activities take place the way they do, cold spots, mysterious happenings and the like. It does not matter if you think ghosts are real or just a figment of someone's imagination.
In December of 1982, when Tom Ross was 13 years old, he took a week-long vacation to Mammoth Lakes in California with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. Almost from the moment they arrived at their condo, they experienced a near-constant barrage of bizarre phenomena that escalated over their stay, and seemed to follow them after they left.
Since ancient times, accounts of supernatural activity have mystified us. Ghost stories as we know them did not develop until the late 19th century, but the restless dead haunted the premodern imagination in many forms, as recorded in historical narratives, theological texts, and personal letters. The Penguin Book of the Undead teems with roving hordes of dead warriors, corpses trailed by packs of barking dogs, moaning phantoms haunting deserted ruins, evil spirits emerging from burning carcasses in the form of crows, and zombies with pestilential breath.
"Not what you're hoping for..."
Let's be honest: there's an inner psychic in all of us. There are times when we become fascinated with things like death, ghosts, after life, and well, Ouija boards.
"Good stories for Halloween"
Have you ever wondered what happens to the people who were technically dead and came back to life? Do you know that most of the people who had an NDE claim to have had an experience that doesn't relate to anything they've lived before?
There is a clear conspiracy to deny the existence of UFOs. The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the US government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up.
"The personalities and their motives in UFO history"
Keith Linder's reports of a spectacular haunting at his Bothell home became fodder for intense media attention after a well-known paranormal TV show investigated his case and came up empty.

Desperate for help, Keith contacted a team of experienced parapsychologists in England, who flew over 4,000 miles to discover the truth about the Linder house.
Ghosts and alien stories - those are much easier to dismiss as made-up. But is a humanoid-like creature living in the woods really that impossible to imagine? More so than extraterrestrials or ghostly beings?
The UFO enigma has been part of our culture since the 1940s and is building to a worldwide explosion of acceptance today. Now, as governments around the world open their files and records on internal UFO investigations, the US remains steadfast in its denial of interest in the UFO issue. As more of the world's population accepts the possibility of an extraterrestrial presence, the demand is building for disclosure from the United States.
"tons of good research and storytelling"
In a tiny, dilapidated trailer in northeastern Oregon, a young woman saw a vision of the Virgin Mary in an ordinary landscape painting hanging on her bedroom wall.

Cunning Plans collects several of NYT best-selling author Warren Ellis' lectures on the nature of the haunted future and the secrets of deep history, given in recent years at events in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin.
Does a sinister cabal actually control international affairs? Were William Shakespeare and Abraham Lincoln secretly involved with a group founded to discover and preserve the principles of alchemy? Has an ancient mystical religion really been reduced to a length of red string that sells for a dollar an inch? Secret societies surround us, yet they often remain a mystery. Their secrecy suggests sacrilege and crime, and their loyalties stand accused of undermining the world's governments. They generate fear, suspicion, and - above all - fascination.
Everybody has one. It's called a "haunt detector". It's the little alarm that goes off in our heads whenever we detect that something mysterious or supernatural has occurred. You could be sitting around relaxing, and for no special reason you start thinking about someone. Then the phone rings; you pick it up, and amazingly, it's that person! Many of us have experienced this phenomenon.What is it? Anthony DeStefano answers this compelling question in his fascinating new book, The Invisible World.

"Interesting, but...spend your credit elsewhere"
Although much is now known about the brain, relatively little has been determined about where consciousness comes from. Dr. Diane Powell, a Johns Hopkins-trained neuroscientist, has brilliantly reassessed the meaning and nature of consciousness by exploring research on the workings of psychic phenomena.
"A fanscinating revelation"
Professor Richard Wiseman is clear about one thing: paranormal phenomena don't exist. But in the same way that the science of space travel transforms our everyday lives, so research into telepathy, fortune-telling and out of body experiences produces remarkable insights into our brains, behaviour and beliefs.
"great insight into what one believes is paranormal"
Scott's discourses on the psychological, religious, physical, and preternatural explanations for contemporary beliefs in ghosts, witches, warlocks, fairies, elves, diabolism, the occult, and even werewolvesare are essential for acolytes of the dark and macabre. The letters dealing with witch hunts, trials, and torture are morbidly compelling. Scott was neither fully pro-rational modernity nor totally anti-superstitious past.
"Good period research"
The definitive investigation into the greatest aviation mystery in history, with a startling hypothesis about who took the plane, where they took it, and how. On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared. A year later, still no trace of the plane - or the 239 people onboard - has been found. But why?

"Russia hijacked MH370?"
History's most intriguing detective story may have been solved - recently unearthed evidence points towards the real location of the ancient, lost city of Atlantis. More than 2,000 years ago Plato laid down around a hundred cryptic clues about the location of the lost world of Atlantis. Since then countless experts have tried to crack Plato's code. Some claim Atlantis lies under the volcanic rocks of Santorini. Others place it in the Bermuda Triangle, off the coast of Africa or say it is lost forever beneath the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. But what if Atlantis is far closer than we think?
Science starts to get interesting when things don'’t make sense. Even today, there are experimental results that the most brilliant scientists can neither explain nor dismiss. In the past, similar anomalies have revolutionised our world: in the 16th century, a set of celestial irregularities led Copernicus to realise that the Earth goes around the sun and not the reverse. In 13 Things That Don'’t Make Sense, Michael Brooks meets thirteen modern-day anomalies that may become tomorrow'’s breakthroughs.
"Too much non-science for my taste."
