A Psychic Explores the New New Age
In this beautiful book the powerful healer Patricia Cori brings us a tiny sample of just about everything that is important at the cutting edge of science and the New Age. A few short days ago, when I first poked my head into the opening pages of the flagship interview with Dr. Michio Kaku, the string theorist, I quickly found myself staring at a stunning dialog with a great master. Like a Bill Moyers or a Charlie Rose, Ms. Cori is able to set the tone with carefully selected comments, suggestions, and questions. It is very consoling in a time of recession edging into depression to listen to great minds discussing hyperspace dimensions which might be compactified and invisible or which might perhaps hover a mere millimeter above our universe and show up in the halos of the so called "dark matter". Dr. Kaku does not rule out Ms. Cori's suggestions that these higher dimensions, so necessary for the unification of relativity and quantum mechanics, are vehicles of revelation from the spritual and the occult. Though exposed to Christianity as a young person, he chose to adopt the Buddhist faith of his parents. So much of "Parallel Worlds" is about the reconciliation of the timeless universe of the Clear Light with a fiat universe with a beginning.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Buddhist sensibility of Dr. Kaku sets the tone for the rest of the book which goes on to interviews with such notables as astronaut Edgar Mitchell (very prominent in psychical research and UFOlogy) and the shamanka MaAnna Stephenson. As the book unfolds it becomes increasingly a massive encylopedia of all the latest in the study of the Mayan calendars, the crystal skulls, Roswell, the Great Pyramid, and much else. Ms. Cori is am intellectual of the first rank, a polymath whose own ideas are clearly focussed. Madame Blavatsky and Rudolf Steiner were perhaps the last psychics who were also able to articulate whole systems of coherent ideas relating to the development of man as a spirit. (David Ickes almost achieves this union of intellect and occult power, but, like Hitler and the Nazis, he dissipates his visions in the fires of hatred.)
This book makes a valuable contribution to civilization and it achieves this exalted goal but avoids so much of the weak minded and the mushy often found in New Age texts. I am even reminded a little of the young Colin Wilson who combined an acute scientific and philosophical curiosity with an open minded approach to psi and the occult. Now that science iself has become so bizarre that it often goes begging for a supplemental occult interpretation, it is very important to embrace thinkers with the range and intuitive powers of a Patricia Cori. This book is a must read for anyone who is not dead to the real issues of life.
