Anthony Peake - A Life of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered The Future

Oct 20, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Anthony Peake is a consciousness theorist and perhaps the ideal candidate to write A Life of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered the Future, a new biography of a novelist obsessed with probing the nature of reality.

Peake’s book attempts to put Dick’s visionary experiences into a wider context, advancing the notion that Dick’s imagination might truly have been a precognitive gateway to the future. Peake’s biography is the first to follow the publication of the Exegesis, Dick’s own eight year attempt to write himself into an understanding of his experiences.

Terms you will hear in this interview include: “ITLADian” which acronymically refers to Peake’s first book, Is There Life After Death, and denotes his philosophy of consciousness, which he has been developing through several books; “The Daemon” relates to the theory of the higher self, a separate consciousness that may potentially exist within, and / or communicate with, the normal waking consciousness of the self.

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.

Anthony Peake - Our Pineal Gland and The Infinite Mindfield

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.
