In my book, “Soul Wars,” an alien race discovers The Teachings, a vast body of work that describes everything someone needs to know to control all the spiritual phenomena that mankind has ever dreamed was available – clairvoyance, telekinesis, astral walking, everything. The Teachings are a owner’s manual for the spirit.
In my mind, it’s about time that scientists today turn toward these spiritual phenomena and give them a good look. And if they can’t measure spiritual phenomena, then it is up to them to develop better tools for measurement and better experimentation.
Today, we benefit from the brave scientists of the past who weren’t satisfied with theories that had no basis in observation. This is how we know that the heart pumps blood, that disease is caused by germs and that the Earth revolves around the sun. Before these scientists discovered the underpinnings behind what they observed, the culture was steeped in superstition.
This is the state right now of the spiritual phenomena. Many people have had an out-of-body experience or knows someone else who has had one, yet because the experience can’t be measured with current science, scientists shy away from the topic.
“Soul Wars” explores the results of a society that has embraced the spiritual side of existence, wrestled with it and finally mastered it. While the Talasians are also a space-faring race with some advanced technology, it is this mastery of their spiritual abilities that makes them a force to be reckoned with.
