Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong (Schiffer Books, 2016)


From: "Mysterious Universe," July 14, 2017

"The good thing about this particular book is that there is a great deal of variation – in terms of the beasts that are sought out and their nature too. In other words, we’re talking about how some of the investigators in the book take the view that the “cryptids” of our world are flesh and blood, whereas others (like me) are of the opinion that we are dealing with something much stranger. Supernatural, even.... If you want to learn about not just Cryptozoology, but the many and varied people for whom looking for unknown animals and monsters is almost their life’s work, then Behind the Paranormal 2 is an excellent book to get your teeth into."

From "Amazing Stories" magazine, December 6, 2016

"...Presented in such a well-spoken and thought-provoking manner, it’s not surprising that my initial cursory examination of the review copy turned into, “maybe I’ll read a little more” before the book was eventually completed in a single sitting. ...This book quickly turned into a literary seminar on a subject that I thought I understood, but clearly did not....Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong may not have all the answers, and at times may even stir up a few more questions. But in the end, it is an enlightening look at how we might handle those answers we do have."

Paul and Ben Eno are a father and son paranormal investigative team who together have co-hosted the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 in the Boston/Providence area since 2008, a show entitled “Behind the Paranormal,” said to have about three million listeners. The contents of this book are based upon radio scripts of their program that explore some of the most profound and significant questions one can raise regarding the paranormal realm. Besides detailing a large number of their own most incredible case studies and investigations, Paul and Ben also provide us with a great deal of grounded global, historical, and scientific evidence and speculations. From earliest recorded religious traditions and mythologies, to our latest concepts and theories of the multiverse and the quantum hologram, the authors strive to make sense and bring clarity to some of the darkest and most misunderstood pages of human history.

This book takes the reader on a fascinating, very thought-provoking exploration into some truly remarkable terrain, like what the Eno's call the “parasites,” who they see as multiversal life forms who seem to be plasma based, highly intelligent, often pretending to be loved ones who passed on, “spirit guides,” or even angels, while on the other hand they have encountered in their investigations positive, helpful forces as well that, surprisingly enough, may come through from an ancestor somewhere out in the multiverse. They even often encourage people troubled by “parasites” to seek the help of an ancestor. In one incredible case in Portland, Maine, in 1988, a family of four was being harassed by one of these beings. It's main focus was on a teenaged girl. Paul inquired of the parents about an ancestor that the girl might have been attached to, who might be able to help. He was told about one who had been a former Union naval officer during the Civil War that she felt very attached to. So Paul asked the girl to seek this ancestor's help and one night soon afterwards, the parasitic entity returned, causing items to fall off of shelves and pulling the covers off the girl's bed. Her screams brought the family into her room in time to observe what appeared to be a sword flashing through the air. In a picture of this ancestor, he is seen wearing a sword at his side. After this incident, the parasite ceased activity.

Paul Eno entered the paranormal field back in 1970, while studying for the priesthood. He graduated from two seminaries, though was expelled from the third due to his paranormal studies. He had some very impressive mentors, like parapsychologist Dr. Louisa Rhine, Father John J. Nicola, who had been a technical advisor in the production of The Exorcist, and the “Grandparents of Ghost Hunting” Ed and Lorraine Warren. Paul makes some unique and alternative interpretations of the paranormal, Biblical scriptures and the unrecognized role and influence that St. Paul, a former pagan, had in founding Christianity. He explains how in his paranormal work he's come upon many species of what he calls “guardians” and “parasites,” residents of a multiverse that he perceives as parts of what we have called “heaven,” and that our ancient ancestors understood this better than we do today.

Anyone interested in this book might also like to read an interview I did with Paul Eno back in the March issue of this magazine. Here's the link.
