TO KISS EARTH GOOD-BYE

The relatively strenuous cogitations and occasional trumpetings of Swarm, whose extraordinary performances have astonished researchers in major psychic research laboratories. Swann takes a much wider and more thoughtful view than the average psychic superstar. He discusses psychokinesis (mind moving matter), clairvoyance and prophecy with consistent reference to history and recent science (albeit suspiciously selective and out of larger context). Swann is certain of the existence of immaterial realms and interlinking universes which probably have as much structure as the material world. His autobiographical testimony is highly diverting. Swarm withdrew from his body during a tonsillectomy (didn't we all?) and had a running battle of wits with a plant named Lucifer and a chinchilla. Activate your consciousness potential, says Swann, and you can kiss the body good-bye -- or your senses, depending on your tolerance for strange new worlds within the head.
