The Theory of Everything Else

The Theory of Everything Else: A Voyage Into the World of the Weird by Dan Schreiber
6/27/23; 368 pages

The Theory of Everything Else: A Voyage Into the World of the Weird by Dan Schreiber is a very highly recommended hilarious collection of eccentric beliefs, conspiracy theories and speculative encounters. As Schreiber notes: "None of the theories in this book are true. They're just ideas, speculations, beliefs and claims, begging to be accepted as truth." If you chose to believe any of them, that's on you. However, reading about them is sure to entertain you and perhaps become the impetus for some lively conversations.

Dan Schreiber collects several of the most interesting, humorous, and thought provoking stories in this collection. Some of the topics covered are obvious, while others are more obscure. Some topics include: time travelers, aliens, ghosts, seers, communicating with dolphins and plants, clairvoyance, pyramid energy, time travelers, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, a woman who reads butt cheeks, the hollow earth theory, reptilians, a fountain of youth, and more.

The Theory of Everything Else is a well-written, wildly entertaining compilation that doesn't take itself too seriously while discussing, in a conversational style, all manner of topics. As Schreiber writes, "Batsh*t makes the world go round and its footprint can be found everywhere you look. You won't always notice it, but it's usually there, hiding in plain sight." Here is an assortment of some of those wacky beliefs that is sure to hold your attention from start to finish.
