The multimedia artist, poet and novelist Brion Gysin may be the most influential cultural figure of the twentieth century that most people have never heard of. Gysin (1916-1986) was an English-born, Canadian-raised, naturalized American of Swiss descent, who lived most of his life in Morocco and France. He went everywhere when the going was good. He dabbled with surrealism in Paris in the 1930s, lived in the "interzone" of Tangier in the 1950s and traveled the Algerian Sahara with Sheltering Sky author Paul Bowles before moving into the legendary Beat Hotel in Paris. Gysin's ideas influenced gen

The third man factor : surviving the impossible by John Geiger( )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Third Man Factor is an extraordinary account of how people at the very edge of death often sense an unseen presence beside them who encourages them to make one final effort to survive. This incorporeal being offers a feeling of hope, protection, and guidance, and leaves the person convinced he or she is not alone. There is a name for this phenomenon--it's called the Third Man Factor. If only a handful of people had ever encountered the Third Man, it might be dismissed as an unusual delusion shared by a few over-stressed minds. But over the years, the experience has occurred again and again, from 9/11 survivors, mountaineers, divers, polar explorers, and prisoners of war to sailors, shipwreck survivors, aviators, and astronauts. All have escaped traumatic events only to tell strikingly similar stories of having sensed the close presence of a helper or guardian. The force has been explained as everything from hallucination to divine intervention. Recent neurological research suggests something else. Fascinating for any listener, The Third Man Factor at last explains this secret to survival, a Third Man who--in the words of famed climber Reinhold Messner--"leads you out of the impossible."

The angel effect : the powerful force that ensures we are never alone by John Geiger( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Geiger's last book, The Third Man Factor: Surviving the Impossible, explored an extraordinary idea: that people under enormous stress, sometimes at the edge of death, experience a sense of an incorporeal being beside them, who encourages them to survive. Through his research and the response from readers around the world, it became clear to Geiger that explorers and adventurers are not the sole recipients of such interventions. It's a phenomenon encountered across the world and shared by men and women, the religious and the non-religious, throughout history. Under extreme stress, people often encounter a benevolent being that can perform everyday miracles'saving lives, offering advice, providing a balm to victims and those in the throes of disease. The Angel Effect describes people's encounters with this power when faced with physical and sexual assaults; after terrible car accidents and airplane crashes; during events like a shark attack or a bank heist; in the midst of a long illness or in cases of persistent, gnawing loneliness. It explores how an ancient prayer, discovered by monks in the Egyptian desert in the early Christian era, may hold the key to accessing the effect at will
