    Epub The Occult A History ePUB õ The Occult MOBI :Ø Ì pnoy.me occult kindle, history free, The Occult download, The Occult A History eBookAny trained historian will be able to see the problem with writing a comprehensive history on a topic so steeped in subjectivism rumor and limited sources Wilson perhaps to his credit does not try to simulate academic historical methodologies but rather lets his poetic soul wander as it will looking for connections between past life experiences shady secret societies and ancient systems of divination Where his narrative falls down for me is his “hypothesis” of “Faculty X” which is the mysterious “something” that connects all of t

    Epub The Occult A History ePUB õ The Occult MOBI :Ø Ì pnoy.me occult kindle, history free, The Occult download, The Occult A History eBookWilson’s overview of the extraordinary powers of human beings is ripe with interesting well told stories but short on the argumentation that ties his underpinning theoretical framework together His basic argument is that humans possess abilities beyond our normal understandings of consciousness that are undeveloped because we need to be hyper focused in the contemporary age The plethora of interesting and well told stories that comprise the bulk of the volume are meant to support this thesis all the way from the ancient Egyptians to Aleister Crowley from Pythagoras to UFOs That’s the useful part of this volume The problem seems to be that Mr Wilson who wants his arguments and his examples to be credible can’t uite make up his mind whether they are reliant on our internal psychological workings or on actual external events and there are several pages worth of examples where he keeps changing his min

    Epub The Occult A History ePUB õ The Occult MOBI :Ø Ì pnoy.me occult kindle, history free, The Occult download, The Occult A History eBookMy first encounter with Colin Wilson happened some 4 5 years ago when I read a Portuguese translation of The Outsider By then I was thoroughly fascinated with the man's clear and engaging style and his ability to express his thoughts in a concise manner struck me as much as his perception of so many different men such as Nietzsche Nijinsky Tolstoy William Blake as being essentially connected in their purposes and goals albeit through various means all of them consciously or unconsciously isolating themselves from humankind in order to acuire a broader understanding of reality and of their own capabilities The fact that Wilson linked all those fascinating men and saw them all as peers brought a very important perception to my mind
