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. This is a three part interview. Part one is here. Part three will be released shortly.

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

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. In part two, we discuss the relationship between mind and matter and how reality is apparently becoming more malleable, the science of self-actualization, the evolution of consciousness and the cosmos, and the future – or not – for humanity.

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.

Thomas Sheridan – The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology Part Two

November 12, 2016

Thomas Sheridan 5

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology. The Druid Code sets out to examine the wider concept of magic and mythology being utilised as an early form of social psychoanalysis by the druids, how magic theory developed from this, and how this evolution of ritual magic eventually made its way into folklore, witchcraft and Freemasonry. The Druid Code utilises mythology connected to sacred sites, developing a bidirectional conduit back through time, to reveal what took place in 2500BC – a shift in human consciousness that made humans what we are today. From Atlantis to alchemy, you will never see history in the same way again.

Engelbert Winkler – Getting High on Light

October 2, 2016

Engelbert Winkler 2

Engelbert Winkler discusses the power and potential of light, and the development of the Lucia No.3 Hypnagogic Lamp. Light is essential to life, and it affects the brain and body in subtle and dramatic ways. But beyond warming our skin and growing our food, how many of us ever really afford it a second thought? Even the sublime beauty of the sunset all too often slips away unseen. Cutting edge research, however, is revealing properties of light which, although appearing to us as an unfolding paradigm, are in truth resonant reflections of insights and experiences that many of our ancient ancestors would have instinctively understood.

Mark Vidler – Sacred Geometry of the Earth

May 15, 2016

Mark Vidler

Mark Vidler discusses Sacred Geometry of the Earth – The Ancient Matrix of Monuments and Mountains. From continent to continent across the globe, Mark Vidler and Catherine Young reveal that order is everywhere on Earth. On remote islands, soaring summits, and level deltas, they unveil natural topographic patterns related to pi, the golden ratio, and right-triangle geometry. And as the planet’s design emerges, it becomes clear that this hidden order in nature decided the location of ancient monuments the world over.

Paul Devereux – Stone Age Soundtracks

April 28, 2016

Paul Devereux

Paul Devereux discusses his book Stone Age Soundtracks – The Acoustic Archaeology of Ancient Sites. Until recently, almost all archaeological insights have been gleaned by looking at ancient remains. Now archaeologists are starting to think beyond the visual. One of the most exciting branches of the new multi-sensory archaeology is archaeoacoustics, the archaeology of sound. Ancient civilizations developed far more than fine artwork and magnificent monuments. In songs to their gods, laments for their dead, and the universal human quest for the supernatural, people also made some very strange noises.
