PARALLEL UNIVERSES CONFERENCE
Various times. Crescent Hotel. $75-$125.

This weekend is the second annual Parallel Universes Conference at The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs. The theme this year is "Things Unknown."

Topics include Spontaneous Human Combustion (that's when folks burst into flames suddenly), dowsing (that's when a water witch uses a divining rod to locate groundwater or unmarked graves or gold and so forth), auto-writing (not to be confused with the folks who publish "Car & Driver") and determining one's own PSI potential ("that is to say your personal ability for remote viewing and extrasensory perception or ESP," according to a statement from organizer Keith Sales). Plus there'll be panel discussions and lectures on many other things.

At first I thought maybe this conference was about the hypothesis of the multiverse in metaphysics, particularly the idea that there could be an infinite number of universes that were nearly identical, and how like, maybe in one particular parallel universe, the idea of parallel universes is widely accepted, but there's a group of folks who don't believe in it and they have conferences about how there's really actually only one universe and how it's all just a conspiracy to cover up for that fact and also because the idea of an infinite number of parallel universes is just like, too freakin' weird to consider and kind of makes you feel queasy if you think about it, you know? But that's not what this is about. At least in this universe.

There are deals available for hotel packages. More info and a schedule of events are found here.
