Summary
"Fringe-ology is a rollicking narrative journey into the unexplored territory where modern science and the paranormal converge. In it, reporter Steve Volk peeks over an anesthesiologist's shoulder as he claps a mask over a patient's face and leads us on an exploration of the deepest realm of our being. He sits beside a world famous psychologist whose research entailed watching patients die, and who concluded that death is not the end, a belief that set her own legendary career aflame. He pores over psychical research conducted by military scientists that concluded psi-phenomenon exists, and watches quantum physicists battle over the results. He offers intimate accounts of individuals who have life-changing paranormal experiences, but because of modern social stigmas must be very discreet about sharing them. Volk interviews people claiming to have been abducted by aliens, and meets a N.A.S.A. astronaut whose trip to outer space turned him into a passionate paranormalist. He investigates what happens in the brains of people undergoing a religious experience, and learns how to control his dreams. He goes hunting for specters in some of this country's most renowned haunted locations, and even wrestles with his own family's mind-bending ghost story. In the end, what Volk discovers is that there is enough mystery left in the world to humble us all, and that out of this humility arises the opportunity to answer some of the most fundamental questions that lie at the heart of human existence: Is there a God? Are we alone in the universe? What happens when we die?"--
