Book Description
Inscribed by author on fep: - "For Marcus: with best wishes. Lyall Watson." For the millions who were fascinated by 'Supernature', this new book by Dr. Lyall Watson is essential reading. He describes it as 'Supernature six years later - a more mature look at marvels'. In Lifetide Lyall Watson looks, as a scientist, at recent developments in astronomy, biology and psychology and combines these in his usual personal and poetic way with experience drawn from ten years of travel in search of insights into the mysterious . 'We seem,' he says, 'to be better equipped than ever before to break through some of the misty fringes on the edge of the unknown. We are beginning to feel involved.' Lifetide examines this new awareness in evolutionary terms, and concludes that we ourselves are responsible for much that continues to bemuse us; for things like ghosts and monsters and UFOs that we persist in labelling supernatural or extraterrestrial. And yet, Dr. Watson suggests, there is much more to us than meets even the scientific eye. 'We are subdivided, rented and occupied by total strangers - and it is to these lodgers, which we share with all other living things, that we must turn for an understanding of the paranormal.' In the deep unconscious waters of this living tide are answers to the mysteries of memory and language, of dreams and visions, gods and devils, hypnosis, hysteria, precognition, reincarnation, creativity and consciousness. Lifetide is a celebration of biology which, says Lyall Watson, 'fills me with a fierce pride, with a constant sense of wonder and delight that we should be part of anything so profound'.
