We are happy to announce that the new book is finally published. You can access both the paperback and Kindle version on Amazon.com. The book can also be ordered from any book outlets with access to wholesale catalogs. The ePub version of the eBook is also available for Apple and Android devices. (Please let us know if you have any difficulty ordering a copy.)
The ATransC is publishing the book under AA-EVP Publishing. The ISBN number for the paperback is 978-0-9727493-9-8 and the number for the eBook version is 978-0-9727493-8-1. An abbreviated Table of Content is on the dedicated web page at http://ethericstudies.org/writing/your_immortal_self.htm.
The ATransC is a nonprofit organization, and after it has reclaimed publishing costs, will make 30% of all proceeds from the sale of Your Immortal Self. It should be noted that we did not take a royalty for There is No Death and There are No Dead and the Association received over $37K thus far from sales of that book. Our efforts to publicize the book and ATransC did cost us quite a bit, so royalties from the new book will be used to help defray some of our cost.
A Way Toward Personal Progression
We have always tried to maintain an objective point of view for the ATransC. So with that in mind, please understand that I am not simply trying to talk up the book when I say that there is important information in it that can help your pursuit of personal understanding.
Lisa and I are life-long seekers. In fact, I consider myself a charter member of the New Age community and well informed about many things metaphysical. It has been proposed by psychologists that the older we are, the more resistant we are to new ideas, and at 73, I am here to admit that it is true. However, with that said, I also have to admit that much of what we have been taught is turning out to be conceptually right but functionally wrong. By that I mean that Immortal Self is all about showing that the Survival Hypothesis correct in principle but that the way we think of that survival may be, is at least to some extent wrong in very important ways.
Important concepts with which I think most of you are familiar include the fact that we are not our body, we sense the psi field which permeates all of reality and that connects all of us under one source. We also perturbed the psi field when we chose to act, which brings important meaning the notion that thoughts are things.
The new concepts for which there is solid research evidence is that everything has a psi signal which each of us senses. But wait! Any paranormalist knows we all have psychic abilities. The new part is that we only unconsciously sense environmental psi signals. We unconsciously process information from the environment based on our worldview and only become consciously aware of the results. Take a moment to contemplate that point. Your worldview stands between your conscious self and the rest of reality. In effect, it represents your personal reality. Two caveats for this is that we share our worldview with our human’s instincts, and we have filled our worldview database with cultural training: “garbage in, garbage out.”
I spend a lot of time trying to explain these new concepts in terms of what I refer to as the Trans-Survival Hypothesis. I also spend a lot of time discussing the community we must live in as we try to understand these concepts.
No discussion of survival is complete without a discussion about how the cosmology relates to the phenomena, so the last third of the book is all about the phenomena—EVP, mediumship, visual ITC, healing intention.
As an engineer, I am uncomfortable touting the human benefit part of the book. To be honest, I am not very good at it. Please consider this a plea for help from you. If you read the book and do find it helpful toward your personal growth, please tell others. Perhaps you can make suggestions for me on the Idea Exchange.
