For many years I was organizing a weekly seminar on dynamical astronomy, and I used to make some historical remarks on every subject, including some anecdotes from my contacts with many leading scientists over the years. I described also the development of various subjects and the emergence of new ideasindynamicalastronomy. Thenseveralpeoplepromptedmetowritedown these remarks, which cannot be found in papers, or books. Thus, I decided to write this book, which contains my experiences over the years. I hope that this book may be helpful to astronomy students all over the world. During my many years of teaching, as a visiting professor, in American Universities (1962-1994, Yale, Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Chicago, Maryland and Florida) I was impressed by the quality of my graduate students. Most of them were very bright, asking penetrating questions, and preparing their homework in a perfect way. In a few cases, instead of a ?nal examination, I assigned to them some small research projects and they presented their results at the end of the course. They were excellent in preparing the appropriate slides and in presenting their results in a concise and clear way.
Whether he's sailing aboard Captain Bedbug's pirate ship, cooking firehouse chili or catching up with policemen over a cup of Mexican cocoa, Ghost Mouse discovers his wild adventures make every day a surprise - especially when he gets to drive a tank for the Army!
The author was a newspaper editor in his fifties when he learnt how to dowse, and it transformed his life. He soon tried some of the many ways that the ancient art can be used - from finding lost objects to selecting the freshest fruit and vegetables at the supermarket and deciding where to go on holiday. Then he became fascinated by energy leys, part of the mysterious world-wide grid of Earth energies, and tracked dragon lines at famous places such as Glastonbury and St Michael's Mount. As his skill with a pendulum improved he went on ghost hunts and had some eye-opening experiences. The book goes on to explain how dowsing can give access to a vast sea of knowledge and open doors into alternative spirituality and the paranormal. There is emphasis on the need for psychic protection, which shuts out what are described as low grade entities - one of which had a coarse message for the author.
