About the Author
Bryn Beorse (Shamcher) (1896-1980) authored many non-fiction books, novels and articles, covering topics of energy, economics, full employment, and global awareness as well as yoga and Sufism. His early books were written under his original name, Brynjolf Bjorset. He worked and travelled in over 65 countries from Norway to Borneo. Sent on a UN economic mis- sion to Tunisia in the 1960’s, helping to rebuild the Norwegian economy after WWII, Beorse also spent time in exploration, travelling to the Kumbha Mela in India, living on the beach in the dunes of Oceano, and going to China at the time of the revolution. A spy in WWII, he was part of the plot to kidnap Hitler. He was an advocate of the giro-credit economic system, and he often spoke out against the stagnation of hierarchical organization. In the 1920s, Shamcher became a pupil of the great Sufi teacher, Inayat Khan, and was in- strumental in developing Sufi centres throughout the world. He devoted the last years of his life to promoting OTEC, Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, the source of benign solar power from the sea.

One unifying idea that streams through the chapters is that ours is a vibrating, radiating universe. Inspired by Dr. James Jeans' book, THE MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE (1931), and by the thinking of Dr. Oscar Brunler (1894-1952), if you are looking for something that will stretch your mind and cause you to question age-worn values and beliefs, this book is for YOU!
