"The real genius of Corson’s approach is the overwhelming evidence he brings to the fore that the world around the reader repeats its patterns to echo their creator’s mark. Humanity is thus part of the “cosmic beauty” that can be understood through reason and being unafraid to face our inner sameness with the stars and with each other. "

Tales From the Other Side
A companion book to Regaining Paradise by Paul Corson
This special will end December 31
Readers will be amazed when they realize that the Other Side can help them in their most trying times. The booklet describes sixteen such cases that were witnessed by the author. In one of the stories, Corson tells of his deceased father warning him when driving that the intersection he was approaching posed grave danger. Paul responded by putting on the brakes. Forewarned, as he crossed the intersection, he narrowly avoided a head-on collision. Although the two cars sideswiped and spun around, no one was injured.
In another story, Corson describes how a man suddenly appeared one freezing night when his car was stuck on ice and freed it, which saved Corson from suffering hypothermia, at the least. This happened before the advent of cell phones.
These tales take up the first five parts of the book.
The sixth part is a poem that was inspired by Gregg Easterbrook’s article in The Atlantic, “Are We Alone”? which focuses on the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) project. Easterbrook declared that if we made contact with an extraterrestrial civilization that had met God and was willing to tell us what it had learned, “human society would shake to its foundations.""
The poem describes an encounter between villagers who were stargazing and space travelers from beyond the solar system. Trembling, the villagers asked the aliens, “Tell us of your God”?
The space travelers related how God disclosed itself and how this knowledge led to them becoming more nurturing, loving beings.
The seventh part consists of short stories that can inspire us to set higher standards for ourselves. The first tale tells about an island paradise, Efil, where people live in harmony with each other. In time, their civilization suffers a “mid-life crisis,” in which their people teeter on the brink of autocratic rule.
When tyranny seems inevitable, two betrothed idealists set out from their respective hamlets to enter the unknown to save their island people from acting on their worst impulses.
The second story's central character is a sentient planet that is self aware and aware of the solar system and of its place in it.
One day the planet sees an object from outer space approaching. When the craft lands four upright forms with moving appendages emerge and exchange unfamiliar sounds between them.
The planet found she could communicate with the visitors by using invisible portals—telepathic gateways—that are common to living things.
This sets the stage for the planet and the space travelers receiving information that will open new dramatic chapters in their lives .
Millennia later, space travelers from Earth arrived. Howerer, unlike the much earlier visitors, they were not seeking knowledge, but rather to plunder. This visitation was beamed back to the people on Earth, who, inspired by the planet's response, startlingly changed their ecological approach from exploiting their planet to nurturing and investing in it. This action reversed the warming trend that the people had initiated.
In time, Earth recovered its wondrous splendor."
