Tony Wright - The Fall from the Brain of Eden

Sep 13, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Tony Wright is a consciousness theorist who believes mankind is currently in the thrall of its own dangerously unbalanced brain, whose development peaked long ago in a golden age spent in fruit symbiosis in the tropics.

Drawing on mainstream scientific data, he claims the evidence is overwhelming and calls for urgent research.

He points to neurochemical analogues which provide brief glimpses of the kind of consciousness we’ve lost, and suggests a three pronged approach to improve neural functioning.

He is the author of Left in the Dark, a book that is set for relaunch in 2014 as Return to the Brain of Eden. For further details see http://leftinthedark.org.uk and http://beyond-belief.org.uk.

Graham Nicholls - Navigating the Out of Body Experience

Aug 8, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Graham Nicholls claims to have experienced hundreds of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since his first spontaneous one at twelve years old. Over the years he has sought to hone the art in his efforts to increase the number of his own experiences and their attainability for others. Graham has for several years offered one-on-one coaching and in 2012 published Navigating the Out of Body Experience, detailing his techniques alongside an exploration of the science and philosophy of the area, as well as what to expect from an experience.

In the podcast, Graham discussed the idea of the OBE as taking place within “the extended mind”; his holistic, multi-disciplinary approach; the psychological and energetic benefits; the interviewer’s own experiences with OBEs, influencing his novel, Human+; the three main impediments to having an experience; Graham’s telepathy experiments with Rupert Sheldrake; and veridical evidence for OBEs.

Jul 20, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Anthony Peake’s latest book, The Infinite Mindfield – The Quest to Find the Gateway to Higher Consciousness, argues that the inner worlds of the mystic are as real, or more real, than waking reality. In this interview, he discusses the role of the pineal gland in granting access to these worlds and its thousands of years of veneration within various esoteric traditions.

Anthony Peake has authored several books investigating consciousness and reality, probing such topics as déjà vu, the near death experience, the nature of time, the bicameral mind and the out of body experience.

Anthony is also the founder of the ITLAD Walker Group, the discussion group featured in The Eternities, which meets in Liverpool, England, and online.
