"Beyond Telepathy" by Andrija Puharich (1973 edition)

"Long unavailable in the U.S., this is one of the very best books available on the subject of psychical research — a subject that has a much wider audience today than when the book was first published in 1962.

Here Dr. Puharich presents a coherent theory relating phenomena such as ESP, astral projection, meditative states, and shamanism. This is a stimulating attempt to relate psychical research to the physiology of mankind.

In the first part of the book, Puharich brilliantly and lucidly presents the evidence for a nuclear psi entity or component, called "psi plasma," which, he maintains, can exist independently of the physical body. Conventional science has ignored this area of research because the phenomena is hard to reproduce in the lab, on demand.

The latter part of Beyond Telepathy analyzes the biological, physiological, and psychological conditions leading to the control of Psi Plasma, so that its activity can be demonstrated, to order, on demand. "
