Thomas Sheridan – The Secret Science of Sorcery – Part One

May 7, 2018

Thomas Sheridan Sorcery

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book Sorcery – The Invocation of Strangeness.

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page. This is a two part interview. Part two is here.)

In the modern world, we no longer have time for magic, dismissing it as mere mumbo-jumbo from a less enlightened age. One might say, in fact, that the magic has gone out of our lives. Most of us, however, misunderstand just what magic is – a mechanism for manipulating the world around us, which through suppression and since the ascent of the scientific era, has mostly faded from memory. Yet this force lives on and indeed is fundamental to the very fabric of the Universe.

Probing deeper, we find that most of that which makes up all that apparently exists – in the form of dark matter and dark energy – remains a mystery to modern mainstream science. We discover that conventional notions of time, space, and matter are illusions and that reality is subjective, malleable, and made up of myriad unseen, unknown levels. We learn that our beliefs and expectations, our desire and will, play a part in shaping reality and in doing so, we understand that we can manipulate the mechanics of the non-material toward our own ends. Materialist science may reject mind over matter, but it’s real enough. From particle physics to psychic powers, and from Donald Trump to 9/11, we roam the realms where science and sorcery are one and the same, and nothing or nowhere is quite what it seems.

Rupert Sheldrake – Science and Spiritual Practices

March 1, 2018

Rupert Sheldrake

Biologist, parapsychological researcher, and author of ‘The Science Delusion’ Rupert Sheldrake discusses his latest book ‘Science and Spiritual Practices’. In this pioneering work Sheldrake shows how science helps validate seven practices on which all religions are built, and which are part of our common human heritage: meditation, gratitude, connecting with nature, relating to plants, rituals, singing and chanting, and pilgrimage and holy places. The effects of spiritual practices are now being investigated scientifically as never before, and many studies have shown that religious and spiritual practices generally make people happier and healthier.

Jim Elvidge – The Universe… Solved!

February 26, 2018

Jim Elvidge

Jim Elvidge discusses his book ‘The Universe – Solved! A New Provocative View of the True Nature of Reality’. Have you ever felt that there was something odd about the world we live in? Something about reality that isn’t quite random, as it should be? Something a little too organized, a little too planned, a little too programmed? What if reality isn’t really what you think it is? What if our world is just like one big video game? According to Elvidge, it’s actually not as far-fetched as it seems. Within 30 years, he maintains that we will be able to create virtual environments indistinguishable from our current reality. Within a few more decades, even physical realities will be manufactured. He also believes that we are marching toward an inevitable merge with machines and artificial intelligence. What’s more, we may even have already reached that point and it’s simply impossible to tell.

Gary Lachman – Beyond The Robot: The Life and Work of Colin Wilson – Part Three

January 30, 2018

Gary Lachman Wilson part 3

In part three, we consider how Wilson’s worldview differed from that of many in the literary movement he was all-too-often lumped in with, the so-called ‘angry young men’ such as John Osborne and Kingsley Amis who rose to prominence during the 1950s. Wilson held an unfashionable belief in the power of self-improvement over and above that of social protest or utopian politics. Indeed, his ideas about the possible emergence of a New Human, physically and mentally improved, coupled with his criticism of what he saw as the widespread denial of genius and worm’s-eye view of the World, were in certain circles condemned as nothing less than fascist.

Penny Sartori – The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences

December 26, 2017

Penny Sartori

Penny Sartori discusses her book ‘The Transformative Power of Near-Death Experiences – How the Messages of NDEs Positively Impact the World’. The NDE phenomenon is as old as humankind itself, and has been documented – and explained or dismissed – in myriad ways for just as long. In the modern world, dominated by scientific reductionism, NDEs are generally viewed as mere chemical by-products of a dying brain, the after-effects and apparent implications derided as wishful thinking and New Age nonsense. Evidence that NDEs contain a profoundly important message for humanity, however, continues to emerge, and the possibility that they may play a vital part in our evolution is very real indeed. The near-death experience instils knowledge in those who experience it that we are all interconnected, part of a much greater whole, and that what we do to others, we do to ourselves.

Gary Lachman – Beyond The Robot: The Life and Work of Colin Wilson – Part Two

November 20, 2017

Gary Lachman 33

Gary Lachman discusses his book ‘Beyond the Robot – The Life and Work of Colin Wilson’. Colin Wilson was a literary and cultural rebel, and one of the most adventurous, hopeful, and least understood visionary intellects of the past century. Author of over a hundred books including the 1956 classic ‘The Outsider’, Wilson purveyed a philosophy of mind power and human potential that made him arguably the only optimistic existentialist.

Amit Goswami – Quantum Physics and the Meaning of Life

August 16, 2017

Amit Goswami 2

Amit Goswami discusses ‘The Everything Answer Book: How Quantum Physics Explains Love, Death and the Meaning of Life’. Goswami s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but also the key to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics offers an antidote to the moral sterility of scientific reductionism and mechanistic materialism, and holds the key to the clearest, most coherent understanding of our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. In The Everything Answer Book Goswami and his colleagues discuss, among other things, how quantum physics affects our understanding of thoughts, feelings and intuitions, karma, death and reincarnation, dreams, evolution and the purpose of existence. Crucially, it points the way towards the spiritualization of politics, economics, business, education, and wider society itself, all of which are vital steps if our species is to survive and thrive through the challenging times ahead.

Phil Escott – What is Awakening?

July 31, 2017

Phil Escott 2

From the New Age movement to the 2012 phenomenon, and across the spectrum of belief that is contemporary spirituality, in recent decades there has been a lot of talk about awakening. But just what is it, and how do you get there? Exploring Eastern mysticism? Meditating on a mountaintop? Becoming a hermit, hiding in the woods? It could be any or all of these, and also none. What if awakening is nothing like you’ve been led to believe? Like the ordeal of transformation through trauma, awakening can be difficult, unexpected, and at first, even unrecognised. Although sometimes sudden, it can also be slow, and often more subtle than expected. It may even take place at the moment of your death, but it is always incomplete. Typical traits such as the dissolution of desire and the death of ego may not transpire, and the hoped-for end of human faults and frailties may be an illusion.

Anthony Peake – Opening the Doors of Perception

November 16, 2016

Anthony Peake X

Anthony Peake discusses his book Opening the Doors of Perception – The Key to Cosmic Awareness. Considering the irreducible complexity of the human brain and the sense we often have of our bodies feeling more like part of the external world – a vehicle or conduit if you will – while our inner selves, our consciousness appears to reside ‘elsewhere’, we ask: Is mind within matter or matter within mind? What and where is consciousness? Is it merely an epiphenomenon of the brain, or is it the origin of all that is? We consider altered states of consciousness, including so-called mental illness, and ask what purpose, if any, they might ultimately serve. Under certain circumstances, such altered states seem to offer glimpses of a much wider reality beyond that normally perceived by our five senses.
