The Mind of Sasquatch

Posted by: Christopher Noël on January 2nd, 2015

And the Secret to Their Success (a theory)

mindofsas

Although we cannot study the psychology of Sasquatch directly, we are in good position already to make educated guesses about their mentality based on behavioral analysis.

Skeptics are fond of asking, as though no answer were remotely possible, “HOW could an eight-foot-tall primate exist undiscovered in our backyard?”

This book meets the issue head-on, offering a personality profile of the species that differs substantially from those offered before.

Sasquatch are hardwired by evolution to conceal themselves, interacting with us only in a mediated, indirect fashion. Their tactical genius and other striking abilities mirror gifts seen in people known as autistic savants.

Exploring this surprising connection in depth, THE MIND OF SASQUATCH makes a fresh contribution to our collective pursuit of one of the profound puzzles of our time—the true nature of this kindred species.
