Delve into a scientific view of reality -- and the paranormal

  In The Third Level of Reality, Percy Seymour explores the three levels of reality. The first level of reality is the reality of the five senses. The second level of reality is that which results from the response of humans and animals to magnetic fields. The third level of reality requires a reformulation of our concepts of space and time. The main concept at the basis of this level is that some pairs of points in space, anchored on two types of subatomic particle, are linked by two different levels of space, only one of which is accessible to our five normal senses and scientific instruments. This other space -- Seymour calls it extrasensory space -- is not limited by the speed of light. Here particles and events are instantaneously linked to those particles and events with which they last interacted. This approach to space and time makes it possible to understand a wide variety of phenomena relating to subatomic physics and to phenomena that we currently classify as paranormal, including the human aura, apparitions, telepathy, clairvoyance, and our ability to look into the future.

The Third Level of Reality is a reprint of a book by Seymour originally titled The Paranormal: Beyond Sensory Science. This edition features a new foreword by Colin Wilson.

“Seymour is one of the boldest and most exciting scientific thinkers of our time . . . I regard [this] as a masterpiece.” -- from the foreword by Colin Wilson
