I'm honored to be the first one to review Application of Impossible Things. This is by far the most lucid and intelligent description of (some of) the dimensions that underlie and support our experience here in this physical plane that I've ever read. Ms. Sudman has a mind like a steel trap and the ability to communicate clearly, through explanation and metaphor, extremely intricate and many-layered concepts. There is no spiritual dogma here--rather a refreshing absence of any and all new age platitudes. She does not satisfy herself with easy symbols, and instead describes the core of her experience without any cultural or religious overtones. She gives voice to things I have often thought and never seen expressed anywhere else.
Her style of writing is reminiscent of Jane Roberts/Seth in its intellectual range and sense of humor. There's also an interesting similarity to the flavor of the writings of the women in Casteneda's party, Florinda Donner and Taisha Abelar, sans the darkly ancient, somewhat lurid mysticism of that time period. Or maybe it's just that she writes a little bit like a somewhat amused anthropologist, even when speaking about her own experiences. A spiritual remove, perhaps, but one that is very enjoyable to read.
There have been some wonderful new books written in the past few years by people who have returned from near-death experiences. They all have a tremendous amount to offer. This one adds a truly unique voice to the mix, and one that is full of clarity and fresh air.
