Extraordinary Knowing: Science, Skepticism, and the Inexplicable Powers of the Human Mind


Elizabeth Lloyd Mayer - 2007
    After the police failed to turn up any leads, a friend suggested she call a dowser—a man who specialized in finding lost objects. With nothing to lose—and almost as a joke—Dr. Mayer agreed. Within two days, and without leaving his Arkansas home, the dowser located the exact California street coordinates where the harp was found.Deeply shaken, yet driven to understand what had happened, Mayer began the fourteen-year journey of discovery that she recounts in this mind-opening, brilliantly readable book. Her first surprise: the dozens of colleagues who’d been keeping similar experiences secret for years, fearful of being labeled credulous or crazy.Extraordinary Knowing is an attempt to break through the silence imposed by fear and to explore what science has to say about these and countless other “inexplicable” phenomena. From Sigmund Freud’s writings on telepathy to secret CIA experiments on remote viewing, from leading-edge neuroscience to the strange world of quantum physics, Dr. Mayer reveals a wealth of credible and fascinating research into the realm where the mind seems to trump the laws of nature.She does not ask us to believe. Rather she brings us a book of profound intrigue and optimism, with far-reaching implications not just for scientific inquiry but also for the ways we go about living in the world.

Isabel

And I suppose I should call them ‘male’ since there’s nothing human about them. All male actually, in every sense of the word. I couldn’t be more of a fool than I am around them it turns out but they keep coming back. And both of them keep telling me I’m the one. Yeah. Right. Oh, and somehow, I’m supposed to be able to determine in 10 days which one is a liar and which one really is ‘made’ for me. Things stir deliciously when either one is around and my experiences in my world are few and far between. They are both Gods in their own right and I am just one measly human. Or am I? For a little longer I suppose I am....Oh and Amele, when I’m stronger I will kick your ass for this. While I’m thankful you’re on my side, you should’ve prepared me for this! I know I know, the damned curse. But there must have been a way. The storm of Uglies grows thicker in my world and I feel completely powerless against them. For now, I’m content just kicking theirs. Powerless against the war and powerless against the advances of these gorgeous creatures that should not even exist. Whatever you do, forget everything you ever thought you’ve learned about faeries, and please, do not ever call them that!

His desire for revenge and the maddening Kate Martin, threatens to destroy what he must do to remove his evil sister, SobeKnefru, from the Golden Throne. Can the Scarab King ignore his heart or will he defy the Gods and claim Kate as he lays claim to the Double Crown? Reviews: Review by Orchid at Long and Short Reviews Romance Reviews for Scarab King: Rating: 5 Books I found this story both intriguing and unusual. The backdrop of Ancient Egypt and the ways of the Bedouin are entirely realistic. The story is well rounded with Setti and Kate being thwarted by the dangerous Queen Pharaoh who appears to be slightly unhinged. Throw in a High Priest who believes he’s really in charge, Kate’s colleague from the future who wants to rule alongside SobeKnefru and you have a novel which produces a high quality story of time travel. I have no hesitation in recommending The Curse of the Scarab King for an fascinating read. ~ Ancient Egyptian Time Travel - Historical Romance Rating: 5 Cups The Curse of the Scarab King is a phenomenal read. When Setti was cursed, I could practically feel the dread he endures. I was mesmerized when Kate came to his rescue and they made contact. Their extraordinary passion is breathtaking as it travels through time. The convincing secondary characters demonstrate signs of disloyalty, fears and problematic conflict keeping the story moving at a good pace. Wend Petzler captivates her audience with rich details in history that the reader is just awe-stricken. Cherokee Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance
