Paraphysics ‘normally’ refers to the physics of the paranormal and is often associated with the physical nature of those phenomena studied by parapsychologists. Unfortunately, the word is often mistakenly used as a synonym for the theoretical branch of parapsychology or altogether misrepresented as a catch-all phrase for anything from UFOs, to crystals and pyramids. Paraphysics is neither of these. Paraphysics is a branch of theoretical physics which deals with subjects that go ‘beyond’ the ‘normal’ phenomena studied by theoretical and experimental physicists. Since ‘normal’ science deals with naturally occurring phenomena that can be observed or experienced through our five senses and their extensions (microscopes, telescopes, electron-microscopes, experimental measuring devices and all other electronic and mechanical devices that extend human sensations of physical and material reality as defined by science and common consent), paraphysics would deal with ‘naturally’ occurring phenomena that are ‘observed’ or ‘experienced’ outside of our normal five senses. So paraphysics deals with ‘knowledge’ and ‘data’ as well as physical phenomena that affect the physical/material world that are gained by sentient beings by other than the ‘normal’ means through our five senses. Any phenomena that ‘influence’ our physical/material world, even if they are not subject to ‘normal’ explanation within the sciences, fall within the realm of ‘para’-physics. This would include the ‘mechanisms’ associated with psi phenomena and the ‘sixth sense’ as well as any ‘continuity’ of existence beyond material death of living organisms, but paraphysics also includes the reality of any dimensions of space or time beyond the normally sensed four-dimensional space-time continuum of our common experience.

Yggdrasil: The Journal of Paraphysics
This Journal of Paraphysics, which is not to be confused with the Journal of Paraphysics published by Benson Herbert in England three decades earlier, was published online from 1996 to 2001 with the exception of a last issue in 2007. Publication ended because no one seemed interested in submitting articles for the Journal to publish. It remained online at AOL until late in 2007 when AOL discontinued and deleted all webpage's for its subscribers. The complete series is available below, just click on the Yggdrasil logo.
