Charles Fort's parade of scientific anomalies

Overview

Lo! was the third published nonfiction work of the author Charles Fort. In it he details a wide range of unusual phenomena. In the final chapter of the book he proposes a new cosmology that the earth is stationary in space and surrounded by a solid shell which is (in the book's final words) ".. not unthinkably far away."

Charles Fort's parade of scientific anomalies frames the larger anomaly that is human existence. "Lo!" is a book with the capacity to rewire brains and sculpt new lenses for seeing the unexpected, the unexplained--and perhaps for glimpsing our own role in Fort's mystifying cosmic scheme.

Charles Hoy Fort was an American writer and researcher into anomalous phenomena. Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize various such phenomena.

Ridiculous. Science is sometimes wrong, so therefore science is utterly worthless, so therefore the world is flat. Insane ramblings from a pseudo intellectual. Skip this book and do something useful with your time.

Charles Fort did a wonderful job on this book. He questions coincidence, and embarks on a continuous quest to identify unexplained patterns in everyday happenings.
