Anthony Peake is an author, speaker and a member of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, The Scientific & Medical Network and the Society for Psychic Research. He is known for his hypothesis that suggests that human consciousness survives the physical death of the body by falling out of time. He calls this process "Cheating The Ferryman" and also his hypothesis that all human beings consist of two centers of consciousness. Borrowing from Gnostic terminology he calls these "The Daemon" and "The Eidolon." He returns to discuss his latest book, A Life of Philip K Dick - The Man Who Remembered the Future. Philip K. Dick was a hugely influential writer who drew upon his own life to address the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences of all kinds. In the first hour, we discuss the many films inspired by Dick's stories, such as Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, and Minority Report. We'll talk about Philip's strange life experiences such as his reported theophany and his visionary experiences documented in the Exegesis of Philip K. Dick. Peake explains Philip's orthogonal time idea and presents fascinating evidence that Dick may have been, as he termed the state in many of his novels and short stories, a "precog" - a person that can see the future. In the member's hour, we'll hear about Sibyl, a being that would come to Philip K. Dick. We'll talk about how Philip considered himself a starchild and abductee. Anthony also discusses Dick's unpublished novel that he was writing during the time of his death called, The Owl in Daylight.
