Synopsis

An Unlikely Prophet A Metaphysical Memoir by the Legendary Writer of Superman and Batman by Alvin Schwartz

Writer Alvin Schwartz received a great deal of attention from fans when he began talking publicly about his seventeen-year stint writing Superman and Batman comics. One of the individuals who contacted him was no ordinary fan, but a seven-foot Buddhist monk named Thongden, a tulpa or individual who was thought into being by a Tibetan mystic. Thongden put Alvin Schwartz on the path without form, an amazing journey he took in the company of Hawaiian kahunas, quantum physicists, and superheroes. Superman, as it turns out, is also a tulpa, a being created by thought that takes on a life of its own and, in Mr. Schwartz's words, is an archetype expressing the sense of nonlocality that is always present in the back of our minds - that capacity to be everywhere instantly. Superman is one of the specific forms that embodies our reality when we're at our highest point, when we're truly impermeable, indestructible, totally concentrated, and living entirely in the now, a condition each of us actually attains from time to time.

Reviews

The finely crafted narrative will hold readers
attention, and the speculations in this

'spiritual autobiography'
(as Schwartz calls it) will give even skeptics plenty of food for thought

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
