Watch those movies, read those books

So about five years ago, when I was working on a thesis paper, I messaged prominent scientists in paranormal psychology and their responses were to buy and read their books. This was a moment where I thought, wait a minute, maybe I should do that!

So I bought them personally from the ones that I could and got signed copies, and they offered to answer questions if I had any. I bought the rest off of e-bay.

My reading list:
*Parallel Universes: Dr. Fred Alan Wolff
*The Yoga of Time Travel: Dr. Fred Alan Wolff
*The Eagle's Quest: Dr. Fred Alan Wolff
*'___' The Spirit Molecule: Dr. Rick Strassmanan
*Godel, Escher, Bach: Dr. Douglas R. Hofstadter

In addition to that, it has been recommended that I read:
*Aristotle: Politics
*Plato: Republic
*Derrida: Writing and Difference, Of Grammatology
*Aleister Crawley: The Book of Thoth
*A Guide to the I Ching
*The Principle (Level 4) by the Moonies cult - I got handed this by a homeless man - level 4, it might be restricted.
*The Communist Manifesto

I find that when someone recommends I read a book, even the author of the prestigious book, I will tend to discount it - but the truth of the matter is that I should take it seriously and order the book and read it.

The Universe is kind of saying that you should read the book, whoever recommended it to you probably is perceptive and knows it would illuminate your situation. A prominent author knows the content he has put into each book, and from your questions, recommends a book that he thinks will efficiently answer them in-depth.

A lot of times, it helps to get outside information into our little bubbles to truly make progress and keep from going in circles.

Also, I have found that I learn quite a bit by reading just one book these days, especially ones that are dense and put together extremely well. What I learn in the books are not often easy to find on the internet until the books have been read and then - then magic happens, you can search for specific details and end up on the far corners of the net.

I use e-bay to purchase books that people recommend to me, and I use my Netflix DVD que to immediately order a movie if someone recommends I see it or mentions it., i

I had someone on ATS recommend a movie to me this week, in fact, and put it to the top of my DVD que. Recently, I found out that I am very stupid compared to other people out there - so I have a lot of research to catch up on.

One last thing, those videos that people post in threads, even if they are two hours long, they are worth watching most of the time, I have yet to see one that wasn't worth my time. These are gemstones that we might overlook in our daily lives that could lead to hours, if not years, of discovery on certain topics we didn't even know existed.

This is one of those things that I think I pick up as an author and amateur reporter - this information, you have to know how to find it, a lot of times it seems like there is nothing to write about and it isn't easy to find - sometimes you have no leads, and these ideas I mention are sources of some leads sitting right in front of us in our daily lives.

One book could be the source of ten threads, even novel ones, if certain aspects of it that interest you are then researched further on the net. I have been to dark corners of the net before where very, very secretive information lies just sitting there - but it is on a website with less than 100 hits, for example, because it is so particular -

Books can give you the keywords to look for secrets online, as when a lot of them were written, they mention secrets and then purposefully leave out the details, never expecting that naming the esoteric secret would be the key to finding it on the Internet.

Nice list. I am interested in links to some of these sites with secret information, or are you gonna make us work for it!

Honestly though, the hidden depths of internet knowledge is an extremely interesting, albeit difficult topic to delve into. Someone should make a database of the weirdest and wildest that the internet has to offer in regards to metaphysics, esoteric studies, and spirituality.

Great thread.

I think I might have actually already downloaded them for my KIndle! If I haven't, I will again. I'm sure I at least already have a sample or something. Definitely will add that to the list and support local artists and the like.

Mostly the documentaries I come across in ATS threads that link to YouTube, although I've been told to watch a few like "Brazil" (a movie similar to 1984 or Brave New World) and that one was kind of creepy.

I want to watch the new XMEN movie.

Thanks for the info, always love hearing recommendations from other readers, I'll check them out.

Being a hard core book reader, I will never buy ebooks, well never say never but probably won't, lol. I love having bookshelf's stocked to the brim with books that have been read and books waiting to be opened and enjoyed.

I've read the Spirit Molecule and absolutely loved it, highly recommended. There are some dry parts, mainly about getting the research approved and set up, the majority of the book was really enjoyable.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past is so good! I don't make it to the movie theater much, as it's too expensive anymore, but I made an exception for that movie! Watching the cartoon was a fond memory from my childhood, then I later became familiar with the source. I even got my girls into the cartoon (while it was on Netflix). If you can see it on the big screen, I highly recommend it! I was not disappointed.

I hope you're not disappointed by that other movie, either!
