Secrets Vaults of Time

This book is one of the most important books on psycic sensitivity that is available today. A psychic archeologist predicts what they will find in a tomb that has not been opened for over 2,000 years. Good reading, well written

A classic for sure

Stephan Schwartz has written one of the classics in the field of consciousness research. This book should be in the collection of everyone serious about understanding psychic functioning. The book is beautifully written, and the arguments its makes are very compelling. The first chapters tell the stories of some extraordinary people who have used their psychic abilities to locate archaeological sites. The later chapters give the reader a context in which to consider this information. I found it a rare pleasure.

Psychic archaeology stranger than fiction

The Secret Vaults of Time, by Stephan A. Schwarz Review by Saul Paul Sirag The subtitle of this book is "Psychic Archeology and the Quest for Man's Beginnings." It is good news that this book, originally published in 1978, has been republished by Hampton Roads in 2005. It describes in detail six episodes of the use of psychic information to answer the archaeologist's most pressing questions: where to dig, what one is likely to find, and even what it means. The accounts range from Glastonbury Abbey in England to Indian village sites in Canada, as well as Scotland, France, Poland, Egypt, and Mexico. Both the archaeologists and the psychics are presented as real characters-quite colorful characters-in stories that are stranger than fiction. The last three chapters constitute an essay on the philosophical and scientific implications of this breakthrough work. Two appendices provide practical advice for the use of psychics as team members in archaeology. This well illustrated book is a delight to read - and ponder!

Fascinating book with compelling evidence for psi effects

Stephan Schwartz has been involved in discovering, refining, teaching, and using remote viewing techniques for many years. In The Secret Vaults of Time he entertainingly documents the way psi techniques, such as remote viewing and similar psychic talents, have been used for the last hundred years or so in the field of archaeology. He reveals the stories of a number of people who have used such methods to guide their archaeological explorations with astonishing success, but for obvious reasons have sometimes kept to themselves the fact that their initial guidance came from psi methods rather than established traditionally scientific approaches. Even if you are not particularly interested in archaeology (and especially if you are), you should enjoy the book. Clearly Schwartz carried out a great deal of painstaking research for this book, sometimes seeking out relatively obscure references (including in some cases unpublished personal notes from researchers). For anyone looking for clues about whether psi effects represent a hard reality supportable by experiment or whether they are simply fantasy dreamed up by those who wish it were true, this book is an excellent resource. There is a great deal of concrete evidence presented that something "real" is going on here, even if it falls beyond the current mainstream scientific paradigms. A mind sufficiently open to look honestly at the evidence is really the only pre-requisite; from that point you can draw your own conclusions about the validity of these ideas. For me, this book is rather compelling. However, those people who already know with certainty that such things do not exist, regardless of any evidence (which they may safely ignore because it can only be lies or deception), need not bother with this one. For the rest of us, I highly recommend the book, the first in Schwartz's "Engineering of Psi" series. In my opinion writing is excellent and the material is fascinating.
