    The first half of this book is compelling with a thesis that scientific materialism and contemporary orthodox theories may not be the full story of our existence This is safe ground and the examples he uses are insightful clear thinking and fun to read However the second half of the book where he outlines several perceived examples of paranormal behavior simply does not hold up to scrutiny and references several examples eg Sai Baba Uri Geller and Albert Abrams that are very likely outright fraudsThe book is at its best when it examines the fuzzy spots around the borders of science and he does a solid clear headed assessment of some of the shortcomings of the scientific materialist metaphysics of many scientists today As he writes “There is something missing from the mechanistic model something which seems to have no roots in even the most sophisticated biophysics or biochemistry” and he is correct To support his point he discusses some Lamarck esue critiues of orthodox Darwinism This book was written prior to the epigenetic research of the Norrbotten famine studies and the very recent but similar research on the descendants of Holocaust survivors Had he been aware of these studies I’m sure he would have used them but he instead sticks to the seemingly curious dispositions of pre birth callouses on camels warthogs and ostriches I don’t know enough about these phenomena but if these are true statements then it very much does raise some interesting uestionsHe then moves on to a discussion of luck probability and Jungian synchronicity A fascinating read which seems to link luck both good and bad with everyday occurrences His anecdotes are strong and his tie in to Jungian philosophy I hesitate to use “psychology” in this context do raise the eyebrows His point in this discussion a valid one is that perhaps there are influences on us that are significantly significant that are overlooked with current data and outside of very large sample sizes He makes no grand conclusions here but does a fine job discussing the “What if” based on anecdotes In particular his analysis of the fibonacci seuence is interestingThe high point of the book is his next section on termite mounds slime mold group behavior the regeneration of sponges repeating order in the natural world and regeneration Here he clearly shows that organisms ants bees termites operate as a colony than as an individual He also ties this to the behavior of trees and flora as they are euipped with an early warning and predator countermeasure system for the remainder of their forest neighbors The hive mind is present and determines the behaviors of individuals This is dramatic and obvious in the lower animal world but he ties Durkheim and other sociologists to this phenomena and shows that similar things happen in the human culture as well This coupled with his discussion on the madness of crowds and hysteria is a great read This is the best part of the book because it points out that humans may be impacted on sociological forces of which they are unawareHe also points out that humans are bombarded with an enormous amount of magnetic radio WiFi and other fields that may or may not be impacting us However the notion of field impacts is another of his gems that show that invisible or seemingly innocuous forces can have an impact on us He discusses Sheldrake’s theory of morphogenic fields and speaks highly of experimentation supporting that theory He then ties this to non physical methods that are scientifically verifiable such as biofeedback and meditation to have genuine physical effects on the bodyHowever after doing a solid job critiuing areas where we lack knowledge and pointing out non physical means by which our behavior might be impacted the books takes a downturn in then discussing paranormal occurrences Over and over with Chromebook in hand I researched the examples discussed in the book and there are many However I found a trail of either unexplained phenomena that was not testable or predictive; or discussions on outright fraudsters Sai Baba Uri Geller Albert Abrams made claims that simply were incorrect and the evidence for fraud seems uite strong So the book is half a success It does a great job pointing out some interesting faults in the prevailing scientific mind but then overextends into areas that are worthy of discussion and may have some sort of yet undiscovered grounding However it is a bit naive in its embrace of these paranormal phenomena While it recognizes that anecdotes are not data it seems to put a bit too much credence in many of these anecdotes The author is almost like a reverse James Randi the famous skeptic Randi and his ilk do an enormously important and worthwhile job of pointing out people who seek to profit off people's’ believe in the paranormal However they seem to have an almost religious faith in scientific materialism which sometimes clouds their research and methods Here the author does a solid job in his critiue of a limited worldview but then goes too far in embracing phenomena that turns out to be fakeI think there is a still a middle road between this author and people like Randi We just need to find it

    Interesting but not as good as Supernature

    I found this book to be very thought provoking and love the way it challenges you to think beyond what we can easily understand It is a bit tedious in detail at times but overall very worth the read in my opinion I wish Mr Watson were still alive; I would love to hear him speak and be able to ask him uestions

    More Supernature Perhaps not as good as the first book as I assume he'd used up a lot of the good material but still loads of fascinating factoids
