About the Author
I started my working life in the electronics industry and trained in telecommunications, but switched to fine art a few years later, and am now a fully qualified practising visual artist. I studied art at Goldsmith''s college school of art and was awarded an honours degree. I have always been interested in the paranormal and my belief in telepathy was confirmed at age 17 when I had a clear telepathic communication with my mother. I was also fascinated by the symbolism of astrology - magic- despite my technological background, and my theory contains a watertight logical proof that there is a measure, at least, of truth in astrology. In 1974 I left my job teaching art at Goldsmith's to live in my studio and deal in antiques. It was at this point that I began to get my first low-level manifestations of paranormal activity. These took the form of clicking noises emanating from the furniture which could have been due to temperature changes, but which I rapidly concluded were psychokinetic in origin. During the next 30 years or so these minor manifestations grew into extremely dramatic and varied forms, and I began to take notes and think seriously about their origin. I gradually began to see connections and a distinct pattern emerged from which I developed my theory. The raw material of my theory, my own experiences, were utterly fantastic, and included visits from ancient greek philosophers and a seven million years old hominid, the discovery of, and visits to, the afterlife, contacts with long dead famous personages, the possibility of resurrection of the departed, teleportation, and travelling in time. My final discovery, the root and cause of the phenomena, was the 'god within', a powerful, purposive intelligence which animates the unconscious, and whose nature and function are to supply enthusiasm and feeling to the organism. The nature of the god within is essentially good though it can be very mischievous as is shown in the book. The existence of the god within was discovered, I believe, by the ancient Greeks and their word for it was 'enthousiasme' which means, of course, enthusiasm, the god's chief characteristic. The word is derived from the ancient Greek, 'en thous', which means 'to be possessed by a god'.
