This month we want to showcase not one but four ebooks in our eBook of the Month post. These four eBooks were originally released in Psychic Exploration, an anthology of psychic research, consciousness and the meaning of the universe compiled in 1974 by the late Edgar D. MitchellApollo 14 astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and edited by John White.

A host of renowned scientists like Willis W. HarmanJean HoustonStanley Krippner, Robert Masters, William G. RollRussell TargCharles T. Tart, Montague Ullman, and many more, each wrote an essay, which Cosimo released this year as mini-eBooks. four of which we want to highlight this month:

This essay, chapter 25 of Psychic Exploration, explores the crisis of consciousness and its historical analogies and suggests that the mythic persona emerging from the crisis points toward a new image of man and a new possibility for humanity.

A History of Parapsychology by Martin Ebon
Although the word parapsychology suggests a field of research that exists "beside psychology," its studies are not only related to psychology but to religion, anthropology, physics, and other areas as well. Parapsychology's history may be divided into three periods: from prehistory to the latter part of the nineteenth century; the last three decades of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth; and the present period.

Psychic Research and Modern Physics by Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ
This essay, chapter 22 of Psychic Exploration, describes the application of concepts of modern physics to the study of psychic functioning. Included are a discussion of an example of a theoretical model of precognition that is testable and is compatible with contemporary physics, and descriptions of recent experiments using instruments that have exceptional sensitivity.

This essay, chapter 15 of Psychic Exploration, studies out-of-the-body experiences (OOBE's), formerly called "astral projection" and "traveling clairvoyance," are a universal human phenomenon in the sense of having been experienced in every time and culture, although only a very small fraction of people ever experience it.
