Life, for me, until I reached the age of 18-years, was not in any manner extraordinary. I was, however, given a grammar-school education. And then...I awoke wondering how I came to be lying upon a strange bed, on a Sunday-afternoon at that? With no recollection of the incident I was to learn that a speeding car had collided head-on with my bicycle which threw me over the handle-bars to bounce off the car, prior to hitting the road-surface. My injuries were severe from my head to my ribs, my left-arm almost severed, left side of my face paralysed, a fracture to my skull above the left ear, my jaw dislocated, teeth and nose damaged. That I survived was a miracle they informed me, due in part, to a healthy, war-time diet, roadside attention from a Miss Morris, local mid-wife, and treatment at a cottage hospital almost four-miles distant. I write the above in order to explain why, from then onward, I was to receive, always spontaneous in nature, that which I understand to be minor occurrences of precognition, examples of psychic awareness or, to use a phrase beloved of the psychiatric establishment, lateral thought.

Professional sources are agreed that such damage to the skull, with resultant bruising of the brain, can cause such an effect. I briefly refer to this unusual aid elsewhere in my researches, in order to explain how I have been able to reach conclusions which others have failed to achieve despite the often large array of books published for a given subject. Upon occasion a scientist, brain free of any damage, is able, by similar means, to actually dream up the solution to a problem that has evaded him for far too-long. William Grove
