Colin Wilson has explored the paranormal universe ever since he researched his first highly successful work, The Occult: "the most interesting, informative and thought-provoking book on the subject."* Now, 20 years later, he offers an even wider examination of the mystical and paranormal. And what he has produced is amazing—a thoroughly convincing general theory of the occult. Wilson powerfully posits that our so-called "normal" experience may in fact besubnormal, and that evolution has brought us near the edge of a quantum leap into a hugely expanded human consciousness. Combining fascinating glimpses into the paranormal world with the latest scientific thinking on the nature of "physical reality," he reveals the usually unseen powers of the human mind and discusses why he has become convinced that disembodied spirits do exist.

Beyond the Occult

In "Beyond the Occult" Colin Wilson puts forward a powerful case that our so-called 'normal' experience may in fact be subnormal.

UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA / THE PARANORMAL. Wilson re-examines the whole spectrum of the mystical and paranormal, producing a general occult theory that is as convincing and powerful as the evidence for the existence of atomic particles. A huge amount of new material has come to light in the past two decades, revealing new perspectives on many aspects of this crucially important subject. Linking fascinating glimpses into the realm of the paranormal with scientific thinking on the nature of 'physical' reality, he begins his study with the powers of the human mind: ESP, clairvoyance, psychometry, precognition, psychokinesis and dowsing.He then moves on to consider the more mysterious topics - poltergeists, spirit possession and reincarnation - that have convinced him of the reality of disembodied spirits. In "Beyond the Occult" Colin Wilson puts forward a powerful case that our so-called 'normal' experience may in fact be subnormal.

Beyond Esoteric

Nothing in this world works the way you think it does; there is always more to the story.

Nothing in this world works the way you think it does; there is always more to the story. Be aware that there is a war for your mind and your soul. Corporations have taken over governments in a new form of Fascism that now incorporates high technology and artificial intelligence. The survival of the human race may depend on breaking the Embargo of truth, and collectively developing an ÜberMind. But truth always resonates! Beyond Esoteric takes off the kids gloves, and exposes the control grid extending its tentacles across the planet. The word occult means nothing more than to study the realm of the hidden. So much of real knowledge and wisdom is disguised because the people who run the planet feel that true information of how the world works and how to manifest reality is something you do not need to know. Everything we think we know about the world and the universe in which we live, whatever we have been led to believe concerning the course of human history, could very well be completely wrong, distorted and misinformed. The 19th century teachers of the occult could never have imagined The Ultimate Journey of the 21st century we now face, one that extends far Beyond Esoteric.

Historian Gary Lachman delivers a fascinating, rollicking biography of literary and cultural rebel Colin Wilson, one of the most adventurous, hopeful, and least understood intellects of the past century. You will embark on the intellectual ride of a lifetime in this rediscovery of the life and work of writer, rebel, and social experimenter Colin Wilson (1931-2013). Author of the classic The Outsider, Wilson, across his 118 books, purveyed a philosophy of mind power and human potential that made him one of the least understood and most important voices of the twentieth century. Wilson helped usher in the cultural revolution of the 1960s with his landmark work, The Outsider, published in 1956. The Outsider was an intelligent, meticulous, and unprecedented study of nonconformity in all facets of life. Wilson, finally, became a prolific and unparalleled historian of the occult, providing a generation of readers with a responsible and scholarly entry point to a world of mysteries. Now, acclaimed historian Gary Lachman, a friend of Wilson and a scholar of his work, provides an extraordinary and delightful biography that delves into the life, thought, and evolution of one of the greatest intellectual rebels and underrated visionaries of the twentieth century.

Colin Wilson came to realize, through his own cathartic experiences, that each of us are in fact multi-personalities, that we consist of a ladder or hierarchy of selves, and that the upper members may be called upon at will. "Man's being is like a vast mansion, yet he seems to live in a single room in the basement." Mysteries is an attempt to explain all paranormal phenomena, from dowsing to demonic possession, from precognition to Uri Geller's spoon bending, in terms of this theory of man's multiple personality. There are detailed studies of hauntings, possession and 'demonic hypnosis', and also of magic, the Kabbala and astrology. The most personal of all Colin Wilson's books, Mysteries sets out, with daring originality, to place the world of the 'unseen' in a scientific framework.

During this amazing journey we call life, God allows us the opportunity to meet people that are specially set apart by God. It was during a nine week outpouring of the Holy Spirit that began with one of my "Journey Through Rock" crusades that God allowed me to cross paths with an incredible young man. That young man's name is Shawn Patrick Williams. Little did I know that God would allow me to pour into an anointed young man's ministry all that the Holy Spirit had taught me throughout a quarter century of ministry. Our "Journey Through Rock" crusades have spanned the world, reaching over three million young people face to face. Hundreds of thousands were saved, healed, and delivered. Literally hundreds more today are themselves pastors, evangelists, music ministers, missionaries, and youth pastors. Shawn Patrick is one of those anointed ministers of the Gospel that I have had the privilege of personally mentoring over the last decade. Shawn Patrick is truly one of the most passionate anointed ministers of the Gospel that I know. He has an unquenchable hunger for God and a burning desire to reach a lost and dying generation with the uncompromising Gospel of Jesus Christ. Reverend Shawn Patrick is submitted to authority, committed to the call, and totally unashamed of the Gospel. He is in love with Jesus, his wife and co-laborer in the Gospel, Christy, as well as his two children! I sincerely believe that he is one of God's choice servants and a genuine end-time warrior for the Gospel of Christ. It is my honor and privilege to call Shawn Patrick Williams my brother, fellow minister, and spiritual son in the Lord. The mantel of ministry is now falling upon this new generation of prophets.Thank you Shawn for continuing my legacy of reaching this generation with the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Thank you for allowing the "Journey" that God birthed in me over a quarter of a century ago, to continue in even greater power. Thank you for leading an entirely new generation on a journey "Beyond the Darkness" and into the glorious Light of His eternal love!

The occult was a crucial influence on the Renaissance, and it obsessed thinkers like Isaac Newton. Works of brilliance, sometimes even of genius were produced under the influence of occultism. Yet, not too infrequently, it also opened the door on a peculiar kind of madness. The Dedalus Book of the Occult celebrates the influence of occult thought and sensibility on some of the central poets and writers of the last two centuries, beginning with the Enlightenment obsession with occult politics, through the Romantic explosion, the paradoxically decadent and futuristic occultism of the fin de siecle, and the deep occult roots of the modernist movement. Swedenborg, Baudelaire, Huysmans and Strindberg are only some of the names to feature in this hidden history of western thought.

Just when it seemed that Science and Reason had scored their greatest triumphs, the mid-mineteenth century witnessed an astonishing rebirth of occultism and anti-rationalism: the beginnings of the movement we now call New Age. A secret tradition of knowledge rejected by the Christian or Scientific establishments suddenly became emboldened to seek publicity and converts.

The enigmatic and richly illustrative tarot deck reveals a host of strange and iconic mages, such as The Tower, The Wheel of Fortune, The Hanged Man and The Fool: over which loom the terrifying figures of Death and The Devil. The 21 numbered playing cards of tarot have always exerted strong fascination, way beyond their original purpose, and the multiple resonances of the deck are ubiquitous. From T S Eliot and his 'wicked pack of cards' in "The Waste Land" to the psychic divination of Solitaire in Ian Fleming's "Live and Let Die"; and from the satanic novels of Dennis Wheatley to the deck's adoption by New Age practitioners, the cards have in modern times become inseparably connected to the occult. They are now viewed as arguably the foremost medium of prophesying and foretelling. Yet, as the author shows, originally the tarot were used as recreational playing cards by the Italian nobility in the Renaissance. It was only much later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, that the deck became associated with esotericism before evolving finally into a diagnostic tool for mind, body and spirit. This is the first book to explore the remarkably varied ways in which tarot has influenced culture. Tracing the changing patterns of the deck's use, from game to mysterious oracular device, Helen Farley examines tarot's emergence in 15th century Milan and discusses its later associations with astrology, kabbalah and the Age of Aquarius.

Homo Serpiens investigates the millennia-long "psi-opa known as culture and the various socio-religious systems of worship that have shaped and directed humanity's evolution until now. Mapping a flow of archetypes, beliefs, and practices from Ancient Egypt, through the wilderness with Moses and the Israelites, into the Ministry of Christ, the Gnostic movement and the inception of Christianity, Aleister Crowley's Law of Thelema, Hitler and the National Socialists, and finally the UFO contact cults and alien abduction rituals of modern times, Homo Serpiens unveils an occult agenda behind history and the mythic narrative of Masonic Sorcery Theater that drives it. Drawing on the works of C.G. Jung, Rudolph Steiner, and Philip K. Dick, this work interprets all human and even trans-human manipulations as side effects of an even deeper process of DNA-activation, Kundalini rising, and species mutation, from personal to galactic consciousness, into 2012 and beyond. Homo Serpiens is a grimoire for the end times. Chapters include: A Fellowship of the Rings; Homoplasmate and Apotheosis of Species; The Egyptian Strand; The Judaic Strand; The Aiwaz Working; The Nazi Strain; The Humalien Agenda and the Return of "the Godsa; The Goddess Revival; The Lucifer Coil; more.
