Spiritualists believe that when the body dies the soul lives on, and if you can establish the right connections you can communicate with the dead. Noted author and scientist Arthur C. Clarke ponders this belief, and asks: “Is this any more than wishful thinking?” “Messages From The Dead” is Arthur C. Clarke’s provocative investigation of communication across the barrier of death. He puts spiritualism in the spotlight by studying vivid cases from many different societies.
Like the psychologist in Brazil, who enters a trance to commune with the spirits of the old masters. using only his fingers, he produces the unmistakable ‘brush strokes’ of famous painters, often within a matter of minutes. Is it possible for talent to be passed on from beyond the grave?
“Messages From The Dead” unfolds like an intruguing detective story, exploring several seductive clues.
