Total reality consists of three levels. 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. This response can not only be used to find direction, time, and location in space, but it also allows us to understand some of the links between human personality and the state of the cosmos at the birth of each individual.

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 -- let's call 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.

"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
