The Expansive Psyche
Updated: Dec 16, 2022
A Scholarly Review of: Terje Simonsen, A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal: Our Secret Powers—Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Precognition, London: Watkins, 2020.
"As neuroscientific research has drawn our attention to the infinite complexity of the brain, we often hear comparisons of the brain and the cosmos. The idea of the psyche as an infinite and perhaps expanding universe is not new. Indeed, the Eastern mysticism that influenced Jung so profoundly has articulated similar metaphors for millennia. In these contexts, new and old, a truly intelligent book about the paranormal, A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal, written by scholar Terje Simonsen, is both timely and thought-provoking. It illustrates how our current notions about the mind, the brain, and the soul have been shaped over time. It may even spark our imaginings about the future."
