Cheating the Ferryman, The Daemon, Quantum Weirdness & Precognition
Anthony Peake is a British writer whose work focuses on near-death experience, deja vu and the nature of reality. Peake has suggested a different explanation as to what happens to human consciousness at the point of death. This theory, which he terms Cheating the Ferryman was first published in the International Journal of Near Death Studies in 2004. The theory involves Peake's unorthodox interpretation of the latest theories of quantum mechanics, neurology and consciousness studies and concludes that at the point of death the dying person is presented with a literal minute-by-minute recreation of their life in 'real time' from their subjective viewpoint. This inwardly generated 'reality' is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Peake proposes that four seemingly conflicting theories of quantum physics - the Implicate Order of David Bohm, the Many-Worlds Interpretation of Hugh Everett, the Copenhagen Interpretation of Niels Bohr and the Anthropic Principle of Brandon Carter - can be seen as complementary. In this program, Anthony Peake talks about reality, quantum weirdness, precognition and how to cheat death. In our members section, Anthony elaborates on the construct of reality. He talks about synchronicity, the daemon, balancing our two brain halves, precognition in dreams and in real life. Anthony tells us about his near death experience. We'll also discuss Philip K Dick, William Blake, J.B. Priestley, John William Dunne and the weirdness of time and manipulation of reality.
