Is there life after death? This age-old question has plagued humankind from the moment we became self-aware, but do we now have enough evidence to answer it? In this mind-expanding book, Anthony Peake reveals an extraordinary model of life after death – one that brings together ideas from ancient philosophy, neuroscience, quantum physics and consciousness studies, and manages to explain a number of seemingly mysterious experiences such as precognition, déjà vu, synchronicity, near-death experiences, and out-of-body experiences.

The book is a much-awaited follow-up to Peake’s internationally bestselling Is There Life After Death? which introduced his revolutionary model. Since then he has amassed more evidence, using new studies by world-leading researchers, theories from the likes of Stephen Hawking, Carl Jung and, Hugh Everett, together with testimonies of NDEs and precognitive experiences which give everyday clues to our immortality. Cheating the Ferryman presents an astounding model of survival after death that is supported by, rather than in conflict with, our present understanding of how the universe works.

    One possible explanation about the universe being holographic is firstly, every consciousness experiences itself as being in dead centre of the universe. No matter where it moves in it’s physical or non physical form, from its perspective it’s always in the centre. It’s not possible to be near the edge. But, that’s assuming that it’s a 3d sphere. It would make more sense to say that consciousness exists at the intersection of 2 or more universes. The field lines emerging from a magnet being the representation. The resultant interference causing consciousness. The eye of consciousness can move around the area of the coincidence of the field lines and by doing so can catch glimpses of pre-summed futures, and get different readings depending on which diverging field line one focuses in on. Essentially the ability to read the future is down to how one moves their consciousness along one field line, memorising it and then moving along another, memorising that and then summing them. If one gets a blueshift while looking into the future, does one get a red shift when one looks into the past? The past is often associated with the colour gold indicating a redshift. For me ancient civilisations seem to be bathed in a golden light.

    In terms of black holes an neutron stars, taking the idea of a sequence where first there is radiation followed by subatomic particles, followed by protons followed by neutrons followed by hydrogen, helium and then the elements, assuming a true element has to contain neutrons. Elements can be created by releasing energy causing nuclei to fuse up to iron. To get to the heavier elements energy has to be put back into the elements to make them fuse, so iron is a mid point. When a star collapses into a neutron star, the protons are gone and it’s reached a state where no more energy can be released and at that point transforms into a black hole.

    Taking a 3d universe to be a coincidence of field lines, one coincidence is connected to another via a black hole. If the coincidence is a bubble, this is connected to another via a pillar of neutrons. Neighbouring bubbles have opposite polarity. Neutrons and dark matter within our universe have the commonality that they exhibit no charge and have no energy. A neutron is a proton with the energy squeezed out of it. Dark matter or empty space only seems to interact with matter once it’s nearing the speed of light indicating it has slippage. It also suggests dark matter is static relative to matter, but not in absolution, since dark matter expands pushing the stars apart, though the stars and bodies of matter are not necessarily moving relative to dark matter to realise this.

    So where’s my punchline? Well I don’t know where it is, I’m not sure what my question is. I’m basically just agreeing with and making sense of what you and Anthony said in this interesting talk.

    Thanks Greg & Anthony for this fascinating two-parter!
