Title: Can you help me locate this book?
Post by: newmethod on December 01, 2012, 14:59:22
Hi,

One of the Astral Pulse members wrote a book this one first read as interesting & one i wanted to check out.

I first saw it 6mths-1yr ago maybe.

The cover had a nebula on it.. Maybe Orion Nebula i think?
The author was a frequent visitor on here at least while i was on here in the past and seemed a well respected member of the Astral Pulse forums.

The author (from memory) is a psychiatrist.
Male i gather.

Can anyone help me find this book?
Thx,
Dean

If anyone cares i found it:

http://www.explorations-in-consciousness.com/index.html (http://www.explorations-in-consciousness.com/index.html)


And now i've found it i see it's only just down the list in  "Welcome to Book Reviews!"  :roll:

When i first saw it months ago i never made the connection: Frederick Aardema=Major Tom... or i probably would have more easily found it.
Oh well all good  :-)
Now i can check it out :-) :-) :-D

Thanks Tom,

what kept me thinking about this book long after i first saw it was the few lines you wrote in the Preface - From your website http://www.explorations-in-consciousness.com/preface.html (http://www.explorations-in-consciousness.com/preface.html):
"After all, the subject is tied up with some fundamental questions about human existence. What is my purpose? Where do I come from? Do I continue after death? Is my existence bound to physical reality? What is reality?
I should probably warn the reader early on that I consider it doubtful that the OBE offers any definite answers to these questions, at least not as things stand now. Yet, unlike some scientific approaches, after more than twenty years of exploring the out-of-body state, I have difficulty dismissing it as merely a hallucinatory experience."

It's interesting to read. Do you explore this (your doubt) further in the book?

Regards,
Dean

Hi Newmethod,

Yes, it's a common thread throughout.

I like to explore different avenues while staying close to the experience itself.
