In 1941 the precursor to the OSS and the CIA combined with British SAS to produce an elite fighting force whose mission it was to carry out subversive activities against the fascist regimes of Europe, actions that continue to resonate in the world today. These activities play a very important role in Piercing the Veil. A warrior with the intellectual agility of a Delphic oracle, Lieutenant Commander Grant Chisolm leads his exceptionally highly-trained, well-equipped team of SEALs into the heart of darkness. His highly secretive mission is to rescue hostages taken by the charismatic and cunning leader of a major insurgency in sub-Saharan Africa. He is forced to confront the irrationality of malevolent genius, bureaucratic quackery posing as government, and the link between a man’s past indiscretions and present death and destruction. As he becomes more deeply involved in this extremely dangerous mission, he discovers that his own life is a mirror of ancestral ambitions that reveal themselves through an unexpected discovery for which nothing could have fully prepared him. The historical implications of his discoveries are truly breathtaking. His warrior quest is the stuff of legend and the crucible is bequeathed by mythical figures only to those who are worthy. Chisolm learns firsthand that not only the sins, but also the blessings, of his family must be borne to discover the true purpose of his life.

We live in an exciting time. Technology and the internet are allowing information to be shared and accessed in absolutely unprecedented ways, enabling a revolution of both thought and experience within the human condition. As a result, increasing numbers are becoming unwilling to accept the worldviews put forth by religion, government, even the mainstream media, and are searching for ways of understanding the world based on hard data and direct experience. Piercing the Veil takes a fresh and objective approach to exploring the fundamental questions of reality, primarily through candid examinations of both cutting edge science and altered states of consciousness. The first of the book's three sections examines the most notable psychedelics, expounding upon their experiential properties, cultural impacts, and potential for both positive and negative use. Next comes an in-depth yet highly approachable look at more unassisted methods of consciousness exploration, including such modalities as meditation, channeling, energy work, out-of-body experiences, and lucid dreaming. Finally, we shift simultaneously to more scientific and philosophic motifs, delving into quantum physics, the nature of consciousness, the universe/multiverse, and the death experience.Piercing the Veil paints a vivid and compelling picture showing that the limited spectrum of consciousness we're usually aware of is part of a continuum of energy and life extending well beyond the physical world. In fact, consciousness itself appears to be the bedrock from which our reality blossoms. Piercing the Veil provides the requisite framework for confirming this invaluable knowledge firsthand. The rest is up to you.

This book is written for you and for all! When you feel a sudden chill go up your spine or feel tingles on your head, that is your intuitive guidance kicking in and reminding you to listen and pay attention. There are meanings in the poems for each and every one of you. They did not come from the mind of Brian, but they came intuitively from across the veil to help us and to give us hope and meaning to life. The book is twofold: (1) it serves as a reminder that you are not alone, and the spirit is real; and (2) it serves as a reminder that you are a perpetual immortal soula soul that will leave the physical body behind one day and cross over into a sea of love so intense it can only be referred to as concentrated love.

What do flesh-eating cell phones, brain-enhancing tacos, and a real live dead foot have in common? They're all tools in the destruction of our world, and a weapons-grade team of heavily-armed Miskatonic University nerds may be humanity's last hope. Something is ripping holes in the Veil of energy that separates our world from that of the ancient evils writhing just beyond what we think is reality. Time is running out for Professors Derrick LeStrand, Howard Strauss and their team of researchers as they race to hunt down a mysterious Frenchman who wields Necromantic Death Magic unlike anything they've seen before. Tearing open psychological wounds from Derrick's past, the cabalistic sorcerer is gathering ancient icons of power to pierce the Veil and bring down the only thing shielding mankind from the relentless horrors beyond. If they fail, the only questions that will remain are who will live in servitude to the Great Old Ones and who will die...and who will supply Derrick with tacos? Set against the backdrop of a world where H.P. Lovecraft was not a fiction writer, but a Sweep, a special operative trained to protect the collective sanity of the human race with misinformative blends of fact and fiction ... where the Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual is little more than a slightly skewed Audubon Field Guide, and the monster movies you grew up with are more documentary than not. It's Lovecraftian Lethal Weapon cranked to eleven.

For thousands of years, philosophers, theologians, and poets have tried to pierce through the veil of death to gaze with wonder, fear, and awe on the final and eternal state of the soul. Indeed, the four great epic poets of the Western tradition (Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Milton) structured their epics in part around a descent into the underworld that is both spiritual and physical, both allegorical and geographical. This book not only considers closely these epic journeys to the other side, but explores the chain of influences that connects the poets to such writers as Plato, Cicero, St. John, St. Paul, Bunyan, Blake, and C. S. Lewis. Written in a narrative, man of letters style and complete with an annotated bibliography, a timeline, a who's who, and an extensive glossary of Jewish, Christian, and mythological terms, this user-friendly book will help readers understand how heaven and hell have been depicted for the last 3,000 years.

Now, broken in both body and spirit, she boards one of the last transports leaving Earth, searching for a place where she can perhaps start over again and finally put the ghosts of the past to rest. But when their craft is unexpectedly boarded by hostile aliens, she finds herself suddenly whisked away by a tall angelic stranger with brilliant eyes that seem to pierce her very soul.An unexpected shelter from the storm...A Ranokian legionnaire from the worlds of Rigel-Kent, Commander Thayne Asazi can't explain why he saved the willful Terran female any more than he can explain the strange connection that keeps drawing him right back to her side.

Tormented by a devastating case of survivor's guilt and terrified of her growing attraction to the bold Centauri warrior, she volunteers for the Awakening, electing to forfeit her own life in an effort to gain vital intel on the advancing Reptilian threat. But things aren't what they appear, and she soon finds herself trapped inside her own mind, a helpless puppet with a malevolent master pulling the strings. Now it's a race against time as she struggles to reveal the Alliance traitor before the Reptilian scourge adds yet another unsuspecting world to its list of deadly conquests. She must find a way to break through before its too late, daring to pierce the veil, inadvertently fulfilling a prophecy long ago written in the stars.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the texts that, according to legend, Padma-Sambhava was compelled to hide during his visit to Tibet in the late 8th century. The guru hid his books in stones, lakes, and pillars because the Tibetans of that day and age were somehow unprepared for their teachings. Now, in the form of the ever-popular Tibetan Book of the Dead, these teachings are constantly being discovered and rediscovered by Western readers of many different backgrounds--a phenomenon which began in 1927 with Oxford's first edition of Dr. Evans-Wentz's landmark volume. While it is traditionally used as a mortuary text, to be read or recited in the presence of a dead or dying person, this book--which relates the whole experience of death and rebirth in three intermediate states of being--was originally understood as a guide not only for the dead but also for the living. As a contribution to the science of death and dying--not to mention the belief in life after death, or the belief in rebirth--The Tibetan Book of the Dead is unique among the sacred texts of the world, for its socio-cultural influence in this regard is without comparison. This fourth edition features a new foreword, afterword, and suggested further reading list by Donald S. Lopez, author of Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West. Lopez traces the whole history of the late Evans-Wentz's three earlier editions of this book, fully considering the work of contributors to previous editions (C. G. Jung among them), the sections that were added by Evans-Wentz along the way, the questions surrounding the book's translation, and finally the volume's profound importance in engendering both popular and academic interest in the religion and culture of Tibet. Another key theme that Lopez addresses is the changing nature of this book's audience--from the prewar theosophists to the beat poets to the hippies to contemporary exponents of the hospice movement--and what these audiences have found (or sought) in its very old pages.

For most of his life, John Creed never gave much thought to an afterlife. That all changed the day he died. He'd been clinically dead for ten minutes. At least, that's what the doctors told him when he woke up in intensive care. It had been a freak accident, they said. A school bus suddenly turned in front of his red convertible, smashing it to bits. By all odds, that should have been it. John's injuries had been grave. His heart had stopped and been restarted. He'd flatlined. His brain showed no signs of activity. Only sheer stubbornness kept the doctors from pulling the plug. Then, days later, he suddenly, mysteriously woke up - confused, in pain, but very much alive. At first, he didn't remember much of what had happened. But then, the dreams began ... The accident itself, in vivid, second-by-second detail. The face of the woman who had been driving the bus - a face twisted with pure hatred. The long hours in the trauma center, as he hovered over his own shattered body, watching the doctors desperately laboring to bring him back. And the light - a faint but steadily growing glow at the end of a swirling vortex. A brilliant incandescence filled with joy, love, peace that beckoned him closer... But there were other dreams as well... A frightened, heartbroken boy from a desperately troubled family running for his life. A pretty, red-haired woman whose life was crashing around her, tempted to end it all. An embittered, broken man whose heart smoldered with despair, hatred, and murderous rage. These lives were somehow intertwined with his own, in a way he did not fully understand. With the visions, John Creed received a remarkable gift. He could share the pain of other souls, take their suffering and transform it into peace. But this same gift also opened him to darker forces. Forces which could shift the balance between good and evil for ages to come.... Exciting, suspenseful, moving, and inspirational PARTING THE VEIL is a powerful testament to faith, hope, and the triumphant human spirit.

Poet, musician, computer analyst, and mystic Francis Knoll, in his second collection of poetry, considers the perspective of our modern age, which is facing a stressed and dying world, while also embracing the hope and realization of another hidden destiny. Through more than forty poems, Piercing through the Silent Veil takes a close look at our apparent world and the thin veil that separates us from a heightened vision and experience of reality. Cognizant of an eventual death, the verses examine life, with its many contradictions and failings, seeking to extract a meaningful and real existence. With a sense of destiny and higher purpose, these poems intertwine the frailty and problems of human life while struggling toward an inner silence and a separate parallel universe of presence. This poetry offers a lyric, metered, and accessible style, alluring with the hope of transporting the reader to a new state of being with a direction that leads one beyond the apparent and static world of forms. Written from the unique viewpoint, this poetry collection explores the world of appearances, forces, and eventual death, considering another reality defined by spiritual existence.

Desert explorer Michael Asher investigates the most disastrous exploration mission in the history of the Sahara In December 1880 a French expedition attempted to map a route for a railway that would stretch from their colony in Algeria right across the Sahara desert to reach their territories in West Africa. 'Paris to Timbuctoo in Six Days' was the slogan. It would do for the French colonies what the American railways were doing in the western states at the same time. No native opposition was expected. As one of the expedition's organizers said, 'A hundred uncivilized tribesmen armed with old-fashioned spears: what is that against the might of France?' Four months later, a handful of emaciated survivors staggered into a remote outpost on the edge of the desert. Although armed with modern rifles, the column had been lured to destruction by the self-styled 'lords of the desert', the Tuareg. At this, the highpoint of European colonialism in Africa, this story of treachery, massacre, torture and even cannibalism made headlines around the world. Attacked by the Tuareg in their remote heartland, the survivors had been pursued for weeks on end, driven into the waterless desert to die. The desperate lengths they resorted to shocked Victorian sensibilities. They do not make easy reading now. This grisly story, told by our greatest living desert explorer reveals what happened when the conceit of western colonialism met the equally arrogant Tuareg, who had dominated this remote region, and anyone trying to cross it, for a thousand years.

Dr. Paul Noar, an Tri-Consortium Prize Recipient for Advance Research in Recombination, and Dr. Lea Weathers, a young and brilliant biogeneticist, embark on a search for the answer to DNA abnormalities found in recent victims of suicide. Noar, unknown to Weathers, has uncovered the catalyst for the genetic changes that have lead to this growing trend. After years of examining declassified government files, he discovers a small-scale biological experiment with cataclysmic potential. He has enlisted her help to verify his findings. What Weathers believes to be a widespread mutation is actually the result of a unique, multigenerational study, that has culminated in the dissolution of the veil between the conscious and subconscious minds of a limited number of targets. Veil Theory, nontraditional scientific speculation on the relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind, is thrown into the mainstream when the offspring of the victims begin to display prescience. Unfortunately, the money behind the madness belongs to two powerful men determined to own what could be the key to immortality. Neland Gatti, past Desert Storm and Desert Fog consultant, directs the lab used by Noar in his investigation into discarded government research. Gatti plays the end game and values only the outcomes he can command. A cold and calculating chemist, he seizes the opportunity to have the government fund his research by promising the delivery of a new chemical tool for its use. He has not been able to repeat past successes and this early pinnacle drives him over the edge in his attempt to achieve control of time through his most recent find, the Alys-1 Project. Cameron Brooks is owner of the Brooks Agency and son of the late Marion Brooks. His fathers company developed the original Alys-1formula for the Department of Defense. It was shelved in favor of LSD and mind-control. Thirty years later, Noar uncovers documents relating to the experiment and Cameron Brooks takes notice, as does Gatti. But Brooks has the edge. He is also in possession of a list of children, offspring of the original test group who have begun to mutate and die. Over the years he has manipulated the lives of three of these children. A perverse soul, his twisted personality has created sadistic killers of twin boys, soon to be affected by the mutation. They do his bidding as he directs the actions and discoveries of Noar. Within six months of her enlistment, Weathers discovers Noars secret files. She learns that Gatti has given Noar false information and tainted his findings. When she reveals this to Noar, in the presence of Gatti, Noar is exposed. He must escape the secret base, where the experimentation has been conducted, and flee to Cameron Brooks. Dissolution of the Veil becomes a race to find the true formula, and understand its veridical potential before the mutations bend their hosts toward suicide. It is a competition confused by altered time and displaced reality as the victim experiences past identities and fluid futures. Veil Theory has become a dangerous fact which threatens the structure of society and the stability of the world. The author.
