5.0 out of 5 stars must read! July 7, 2011
Dr. Krippner, in the vanguard of today's consciousness research, has edited a super anthology of writings devoted to the all-too-human condition called Dissociation. This is a state of disconnection from self, one extreme of which is MPD (multiple personality disorder), though in an entirely different context it may be a mystical experience. These 16 writters/contributors leave no stone unturned in scouring the literature and clinical cases which reveal a great range of dissociative behavior. Trauma and childhood abuse ("unbearable situations") are not the least of the causes leading to broken selves. from this one volume, the reader can get a very good idea of state-of-the-art thinking in the field often called "Parapsychology." Here our authors grapple with tricky issues such as: the fine line between hallucination and visionary experience; approaches to PTSD and shell shock; spirit possesion; and brain-imaging to find out more about the unknown aspects of mind. But getting down to nitty-gritty, the question is then asked: Is it actually an intrinsic part of human nature to dissociate? Is there some sort of double Self built into all of us? with the link made to OBEs and NDEs, it becomes obvious that anyone can have/experience these. Even panic attacks and amnesia are part of this syndrome. Yet these clinicians and researchers have discovered that if dissociation is classed under the umbrella of EHEs (exceptional human experiences), it is but a doorway, a portal, to our Oneness with all things, a state of being, called the All Self. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the human mind.
