Swimming Where Madmen Drown: Travelers' Tales from Inner Space

Overview

In times past, there was a literary genre called Travelers' Tales that told of strange and exotic lands and peoples that were quite unfamiliar to the reader and stirred the imagination. Today, with the ubiquitous reach of film and video, our planet and its people—even Outer Space—have lost the power to evoke the mysterious. For now, there only remains the largely uncharted region of Inner Space to challenge our perception of consensus reality. To that end, noted author Robert Masters, a pioneer in consciousness ...

Overview

In times past, there was a literary genre called Travelers' Tales that told of strange and exotic lands and peoples that were quite unfamiliar to the reader and stirred the imagination. Today, with the ubiquitous reach of film and video, our planet and its people—even Outer Space—have lost the power to evoke the mysterious. For now, there only remains the largely uncharted region of Inner Space to challenge our perception of consensus reality. To that end, noted author Robert Masters, a pioneer in consciousness research, weaves his mystifying tales of a dying yogi who walks away as a young man, of “spirit painters” who paint exquisite pictures with their opposite hand, of invisible shamans, and of schizophrenics who feel no pain. Then there are those otherworldly travelers whose experiences stretch their minds and our imagination to “the point of no return.” Be prepared to have your view of the world greatly expanded as Masters takes us into “a territory of indescribable vastness, a whole enormous cosmos that lies beyond [our] little planet.”
