Tom Blaschko earned a Bachelor’s degree in astronomy from the California Institute of Technology, where he learned something about science. He earned a Master’s degree in developmental psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he learned several seemingly contradictory things about the inner workings of people. He earned a third degree black belt in Shotokan Karate, where he learned about the martial arts aspects of the life force called ki.
He has been interested in paranormal phenomena since grade school and went on his first (unsuccessful) ghost hunt in the 1970s. Scientific influences include research by Rupert Sheldrake on morphic fields, Ian Stevenson’s studies of people who remember past lives, analysis of the effects of Emotional Freedom Techniques and other energy healing, and research on ki by Kuo Kanshin and Shigeru Egami’s group.
Beyond the scientific research there are thousands of stories about people from seemingly credible people who have talked with angels or fairy folk or apus or djinn, seen ghosts, and lived in Dreamtime. Dozens of people have witnessed D. D. Home and St. Teresa of Avila, among others, floating in the air. Hundreds of reports are available describing how someone knew at the moment it happened that a loved one was hurt or sensed something that was going to happen in the future.
Rather than try to discredit all of these reports, Tom asked the question: What is the least that needs to be added to Western science to make these research results and reported events possible? It turned out to be a two-item list: souls with chakras and a fifth force he calls the life force. Both of these are well accepted in many cultures, so nothing really new was needed.
Calculating Soul Connections is the result of working out the details.
