Tom Slick's Mind Science Foundation seeking to do 'Good' for San Antonio

Mind Science Foundation Interim President Catherine Nixon Cooke and Executive Director Meriam Good before a portrait of 'Mystery Hunter' Tom Slick.


If some of the prescriptions offered at these talks seem a bit “out there,” keep in mind the source. “[Tom Slick] did not care if it was fringe,” said Cooke. “You've got to be willing to get out beyond the comfortable, that really was a huge part of who he was.”

Folks nationwide may soon be able to get a sense of Slick's allure, too, as Cooke just this week optioned the movie rights to her book “Tom Slick: Mystery Hunter.” But until that materializes you can join the fight against “dangerous unwarranted optimism,” as past speaker McGilchrist characterized a world ruled by left-brainers, just by showing up to a MSF lecture to work your gray matter a little. Given where this whole thing seems to be headed, it's sort of an obligation.
