Anthony Peake – Mystery and Meaning in Time, Space, and Matter – Part Two

Anthony Peake Priestly 222

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.

Anthony Peake – Mystery and Meaning in Time, Space, and Matter – Part One

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.

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.

Ken Elliott – Manifesting and the Mind-Matter Matrix

April 5, 2016

Ken Elliott

Ken Elliott discusses his book Manifesting 1 2 3. For many years, the concept of manifesting has inspired countless individuals striving to improve their lives. Always one of the most popular areas in the Mind, Body & Spirit section of bookshops, titles such as The Secret and literally thousands of similar publications offer tantalising glimpses of how The Law of Attraction and other ‘positive thinking’ practices can bring about profound changes in our being. For millions, sadly, the result has been little more than disappointment and frustration as, despite months or even years of wish lists, vision boards and workshops, their hopes and dreams somehow fail to materialize. So is there, after all, real substance to any of this? Or is it merely New Age snake oil peddled to the lost and alone?

Steve Taylor – Not I, Not Other Than I

February 15, 2016

Steve Taylor 2

Steve Taylor discusses Russel Williams’ book Not I, Not Other Than I: The Life and Teachings of Russel Williams. Russel Williams is one of the most remarkable enlightened spiritual teachers of our time. After an early life of extreme hardship leaving school at the age of 11, and becoming an orphan shortly afterwards, he underwent a spiritual awakening at the age of 29. Since the late 1950s, he has been a spiritual teacher, and is still actively teaching now, at the age of 94. Previously, Russel has avoided publicity and never published any writings or transcripts of his talks, preferring to work quietly with small groups. Not I, Not Other Than I is the first time any details of his teachings or of his life have appeared in print. The book is partly a record of his teachings, and partly the story of his extraordinary life. We also discuss the evolution of consciousness, the process of personal awakening, and the crumbling barriers between contemporary science and spirituality.

Tom Campbell – Life, the Universe and Everything: Part Five

November 6, 2015

Tom Campbell 5

As well as continuing the themes from the first four parts, in this episode we consider human nature, our collective culture and what lies ahead of us in the future. While it appears that human consciousness has an inbuilt capacity for fear, its origins in the fight or fight mechanism have for millennia been supplanted by an irrational tendency towards a reflexive terror of the unknown – fear by default. Such fear is simply debilitating, and has been further mutated over time into fear of each other and even ourselves. As we race headlong into a still-new millennium brimming with uncertainty, instability and converging crises, our challenge is to transcend our outdated paradigms and change our systems as we change ourselves. Even as the realms of energy, economy and environment erupt and explode, we can recognize that cosmically, we are but children, and that we have the capacity to mature and make better decisions. Existential questions remain: are we alone, the most interesting item in the universe, the rest just lights in the sky? The answers to such questions become questions once more, and the answers return us to the riddles of the ages. In the end, however, there is a purpose to our existence – to learn, to evolve, to become more, to love, and to let go of fear.

Randolph J. Rogers – The Key of Life

October 12, 2015

Randy Rogers 4

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.

Tom Campbell – Life, the Universe and Everything: Part Three

October 12, 2015

Tom Campbell 3

As well as continuing the themes from the first two parts, in this episode we contemplate the vastness of space and the seeming impossibility of intergalactic, interstellar, or even interplanetary travel. In the final analysis – if indeed any analysis can be deemed final – perhaps the road to other realms and the far reaches of the Universe begins within the maze of our own minds. Our endless quest to seek out extraterrestrial life – simultaneously hopeful and hopeless – may also begin and end within. But if indeed there is not one but many universes, then our place in whatever reality may or may not be becomes cast in a stark new light. We also explore the dream space, the strangeness of synchronicity, and the now popular concept that we create our own reality.
