Book Review: Theoretical Weirdo
John E. L. Tenney brings a supernova of ideas and thoughts to the table with his new book Theoretical Weirdo. It sets the brain on a trip to the stars and then beyond the stars and then into the ether and then back from the ether and then this begs the question – does the ether even exist?
John E. L. Tenney is one of the most well known and fantastically weird paranormal researchers that we have the honor of sharing this planet with. He has 30 plus years of experience under his belt. This man has seen a thing or two or maybe even three of the strange and unexplained. He has been featured on several TV shows including Paranormal State: The New Class, Ghost Stalkers, Paranormal Lockdown, Kindred Spirits and Hellier. If you have ever had the chance to see one of his lectures, number one count yourself lucky because it is truly a mind expanding experience. He is so charismatic and gripping in the way he presents himself that you can’t help but be intrigued and inspired to explore the weird and unknown.
If you have any inkling of curiousity that you would like to explore the aforementioned weird and unknown, then check out this book! It is fascinating and thought provoking. As stated on the cover of the book it is a mish mash of ramblings from Tenney’s brain. But just what is the brain? This is one of the topics in the book!
Everything from Ghosts, Demons, Conspiracy, Magic and more is discussed in this book. It’s a refreshing look at many different topics in the paranormal realm. You will run into a spelling error here and there in the book. So before pointing fingers and talking about the erroneous spelling in the book, read the Opening Ramble! He knows, he states this, just read it. The thoughts and inspiration of the book is something that I haven’t encountered in quite some time. It’s spoken and inspired, it gets you excited about all that is odd and strange. We need to start having conversations, talk about our strange experiences, be open to new ways of thought. It’s ok to say I don’t know, it’s ok to not know all the answers because in all honesty no one really does.
One of the chapters that I found deeply intriguing is the one on Desynchronized Sleep Manifestation. This is where you take a casette tape or VHS tape and a small magnet and put it under your pillow while you sleep. Sometimes they record images and sounds! Sounds crazy, but as Tenney says, “What you think is weird, is weirder than you think.”
At the end of the book Tenney says as he does in all his lectures “Don’t believe anything I’ve just said.” He encourages us to do our own research, to think, to have conversations about weird things, to be creative, and to be inspired. In times like the ones we currently exist in, these are the things we definitely need to be doing.
