5.0 out of 5 stars Science Meets Magic Meets Science, February 4, 2011
This review is from: Gifts of Unknown Things: A True Story of Nature, Healing, and Initiation from Indonesia's Dancing Island (Paperback)
Watson has written a compelling narrative that is both down to earth and magically uplifting. The book alternates between Watson's scientific musings on the supernatural phenomena taking place around him on the "Dancing Island"; and the true story of an eleven-year-old girl, whose ability to connect with the rhythms of the earth and other invisible energies, results in her healing and poltergeist type powers.

I love Watson's view of the extraordinary phenomena he experiences. When speaking of the powerful influences occurring at places such as Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid at Giza he writes:
"I am satisfied that all these structures were created by people who possessed an astronomical awareness and a mathematical expertise that we have only recently rediscovered. But I am unhappy with the manic attempts now being made to deify these builders as masters of an arcane and intergalactic order to whom all the secrets of the universe were known. They were people. Born of this earth and , like all things living here, imbued with a natural sensitivity to its cycles and rhythms."

Highly recommended for those seeking to learn more about what it means to be human.
