Since our very beginnings, human beings from all civilisations across the earth have encountered the ‘others’ – intelligent, self-motivated beings that are clearly not human in their origins. Peake offers a comprehensive survey of such otherworldly visitors, from gods, angels, demons and djinn to hobgoblins, poltergeists and ghosts, to UFOs and aliens. In addition to detailing the history of these encounters, the author attempts a bold explanation of the true nature of these beings. He explores the increasingly frequent entheogen encounters facilitated by substances such as ayahuasca, DMT, and LSD, as well as the entities encountered by individuals suffering from Alzheimers-related Charles Bonnet Syndrome, young children’s so-called ‘invisible friends’, and the seemingly independent beings met during lucid dreaming and near-death and out-of-body experiences.
This book continues Anthony Peake’s work in developing a completely original model of reality based upon an amalgamation of ancient belief systems, subjective human experiences of the extraordinary, and the latest discoveries of neurology, neurochemistry, quantum mechanics, and cosmology. This model proposes that consciousness, far from being simply an accident of evolution, is the fundamental source of the material universe. It suggests that at its most basic level everything that is seemingly physical is rendered into existence by consciousness.
