Summary

When New York Times best-selling author Raymond Moody began writing about near-death experiences, he noticed that the stories resembled the nonsensical writing of his literary heroes Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and Dr. Seuss.

In this book, Dr. Moody shares the groundbreaking results of four decades of research into the philosophy of nonsense, revealing new ways to understand and experience life, death, and spirituality. Explore the nuanced feelings that accompany nonsense language, and learn how engaging with nonsense can help you on your spiritual path. Discover how nonsense transcends classical true/false logic, opening the doorway to new spiritual and philosophical breakthroughs. With dozens of examples from literature, comedy, music, and art, this accessible book presents a fascinating new approach to the mysteries of the human spirit.

Still thinking about this book.

listened to this book, then listened to it again. It changed the way I look at things. It's different than any book you ever read. Stay with it. Love the second half, talking to the dead.
