Most of us think science is incapable of explaining supernatural phenomena. This would include everything from ghosts and communication with the dead to extrasensory perception (ESP), precognition, and telekinesis. Scientists are generally highly skeptical of the existence of such phenomena because of the lack of the rigorous documentation that science requires. Nevertheless, many great scientists have believed--and do believe--in the supernatural.
The Paranormal Equation presents an argument for the existence of supernatural phenomena based on the mathematics and science discovered during the last century. It also explains why supernatural phenomena must exist if the universe satisfies certain conditions--conditions which are accepted by many working scientists.
The Paranormal Equation explores such questions as:
* How can we distinguish between the truly unknown and the supernatural?
* How have scientists attempted to study the supernatural?
* What are the rational reasons for believing in the supernatural?
* Which hypotheses about the universe mandate the existence of supernatural phenomena?
Anyone interested in how science is beginning to understand and even explain the seemingly unexplainable will want to read this fascinating new title.
with a member of the alien species; these worlds are known to the aliens but could not possibly be known to humans, who have yet to venture beyond the moon. The chapter is beautifully written, as is the entire novel; my memory of it was still vivid after nearly 50 years. This was clearly an instance of remote viewing, in which people see with their minds a place they have never seen or have heard described. My visit to Linda’s apartment took place shortly after we had invaded Iraq in 2003. The
science pushes back the domain of the supernatural. However, the second part of the definition, which deals with gods and spirits, is simply out of bounds for science. Science needs something it can measure or observe, and while science doesn’t say that gods and spirits can’t exist, they haven’t been shown to be observable or measurable. Nor is the idea of a god or a spirit something that can be falsified. Laws of Nature The second definition, “departing from what is usual or normal
area elongates, and the curve formed by the boundary of the light is an ellipse. If you have ever been to a whispering gallery in a museum, the walls of the gallery are in the shape of an ellipse, and the two platforms where the whisperers stand are the foci of the ellipse. Kepler’s other two Laws are more mathematical in nature, and only Kepler’s First Law is relevant to this story. The lead actor in the Theory of Universal Gravitation is Sir Isaac Newton, arguably the greatest scientist in
you get someone who is not a member of the choir to even listen to you? One way—and let me make it very clear that this is not the way that I have selected—is to threaten them with punishment, while promising undreamed-of rewards, until you have convinced them to adopt your viewpoint. This worked for a lot of missionaries, but it won’t work here. There is no possible threat that I can bring to bear on someone who has a greater appreciation of astrology than they do of astronomy.

movies and TV shows featuring a Watson and Crick trying to decipher the mysteries of DNA or Marie Curie unraveling the puzzle of radioactivity. Granted, there are a lot of exogenous variables floating around when we try to make the comparison—one can cast a Harrison Ford or an Angelina Jolie in the role of a fictional Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, but it’s a little difficult to see Brad Pitt as James Watson (or Frances Crick) or Megan Fox as Marie Curie. Nonetheless, there’s relatively no mystery
