Anthony Peake discusses his book Time and The Rose Garden: Encountering the Magical in the Life and Works of J.B. Priestley. This is a two-part interview. Part one is here
(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)
Active from the early 1900s almost until his death in 1984, English playwright and novelist John Boynton Priestly – when considered at all – is generally regarded as an old fashioned, outmoded relic of a bygone literary age. However, as Anthony Peake shows, Priestly was often far ahead of his time as a thinker, and was an avid explorer of the great existential mysteries which have occupied some of the greatest minds for millennia. Peake draws out common themes in Priestley’s work which strongly suggest that time, space, and matter are not what they seem. In this strange, surreal and, for most people, largely unfamiliar view of reality, mind and matter are intimately intertwined, opening up a panorama of bewildering possibilities. Do past, present and future exist simultaneously in an eternal now? If so, is the past still accessible under certain circumstances, and under similar circumstances, can we foresee the events of the future?
The emergent picture is one of reality as a holistic system in which every part is interconnected with and accessible by every other part. Mind and matter anywhere in the Universe have the potential to affect mind and matter anywhere else in the Universe, instantly, and irrespective of location in either space or time. In this light, psychic phenomena such as precognition, telepathy, and telekinesis suddenly seem possible, and disturbing anomalies such as time-slips, deja vu, ghosts, and UFOs appear less bizarre. As cutting-edge physics continues to construct a scientific framework on which to hang such largely subjective experiences, Peake’s book calls for a reassessment of Priestley’s work and his contribution to our ongoing struggle to comprehend the unfathomable complexities of the cosmos.

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.

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.

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.

Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book More Than Allegory – On Religious Myth, Truth, and Belief. In a Universe seemingly devoid of meaning and purpose where matter is all that matters, our souls are at war with our intellects, and the consequences for life on Earth may yet prove disastrous. Maybe it is time for us to remember who we really are – both magician and audience, dreamer and dream, from a realm beyond language where time and space are illusions, and the very nature of truth itself may not be what it seems. We are the universe becoming aware of itself. We know what God cannot know.

Farsight Institute director Courtney Brown discusses their latest remote viewing project Adolf Hitler: A Remote Viewing Psychological Profile of a Mass Murderer. The life, times and crimes of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime need no introduction. During these remote viewing sessions, however, we venture beyond people, places and events, and the boundaries of time and space, to probe the mind of Adolf Hitler; his fears, his motivations, his very thoughts. We then take the results as a launch point to discuss even more significant issues involving quantum physics, consciousness, the dualities of mental and physical, suffering and redemption, love and hate, the existence of evil, and whether our often traumatic Earthly experience of extreme separateness, division and polarity ultimately serves a purpose in the evolution of the Universe itself.

Randy Rogers discusses his book The Key of Life – A Metaphysical Investigation. In just about everyone’s life, there comes a time when they may question their reason for existing. For Randy Rogers that journey began one day in June of 1995, as he began a metaphysical quest along a cryptic path that at times caused him to question his own sanity. The emotional ride that developed threatened to tear apart everything he had worked so hard to accomplish, and the only thing sustaining him was an undying belief that events would unfold to prove that he was on the right course. It’s a true story, about who we are, why we are here and how we are all connected; a tale of past lives, present circumstances, synchronicity, and reincarnation. It may inspire you to interpret the synchronicities in your own life, experience the extraordinary, and unlock the meaning of life – past, present, and future.

Susan Martinez discusses her latest book Delusions in Science and Spirituality – The Fall of the Standard Model and the Rise of Knowledge from Unseen Worlds. What if science and society’s most cherished theories, taught as fact, were actually wrong? What if the anomalies that disprove these theories were covered up and distorted, and any serious challenges brushed off as lunacy, hysteria, pseudo-science or conspiracy? In this primer in deprogramming, Martinez reveals the disinformation at the root of mainstream consensus thinking. She punches gaping holes in the established theories of the Big Bang, Darwinian evolution, ice ages, and global warming. Drawing on the ancient science of the unseen and some of the most advanced thinkers in astrophysics, she explains a new ‘Theory of Everything’ to replace the standard model.

Graham Nicholls discusses his books Avenues of the Human Spirit and Navigating the Out of Body Experience. The talk includes the nature of the out of body experience, the science behind it, and the state of current research into OBEs. Out of body experiences can be self-induced, but can they be controlled? Are out of body experiences always positive, and might they ultimately have a purpose? What might they tell us about the nature of consciousness and the possibility of life after death? Other subjects touched upon include remote viewing, near death experiences, reincarnation, quantum entanglement and the notion of extended mind and collective consciousness, and the role of sound in altered states of consciousness. We also discuss the skeptic community and their role in denying and debunking non-material forces and psychic phenomena in general.
