This book not only opens the doors to perception, its careful attention to scholarship and exceptional intellectual clarity throws them wide open.
--Whitley Strieber, Author of Communion and co-Author with Dr. Jeffrey Kripal of Super Natural: a New Vision of the Unexplained
Anthony Peake’s fascinating book explores the underlying nature of consciousness as it is revealed through various syndromes and disorders. The book combines scientific evidence with philosophical inquiry in an elegant way, posing deep questions about what we experience as reality. A great read!
--Daniel Pinchbeck, author of How Soon is Now? and Breaking Open the Head
In this deeply insightful book, Peake discusses the neurological, neurochemical, physiological and psychological correlations between pathological conditions and anomalous states of consciousness that are often associated with these conditions. Peake draws attention to commonalities between some of these conditions in regards to how they are linked on the spectrum of consciousness and highlights that a renewed perspective on consciousness could remove the seemingly "paranormal" labels given to anomalous states. More importantly, it gives us a deeper understanding of pathological conditions such as epilepsy, migraine and schizophrenia and provides us with insight into how to develop potential therapeutic strategies for those who live with these conditions.
--Dr Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences
Anthony Peake is engaged in one of the most important strands of ontological inquiry of modern times, unravelling the Gordian Knot that is the mystery of our existence. Boldly researched, patiently detailed and with clearly explained examples of ?experience anomalies?, this book underpins his non-mystical model of immortality, showing how our bi-cameral brains might interface with the universal Pleroma.
--Bob Rickard, Founder Editor of Fortean Times

He has been interviewed by many radio stations and magazines across the world and has appeared on British television discussing the explanatory power of this idea. He is also developing a reputation as an engaging and dynamic public speaker having now presented over 100 lectures across the UK, Europe and the USA.

For anyone interested in human consciousness studies, this book will be immensely enjoyable.
Over and against materialist-reductionist science, while avoiding the pitfalls of new age sloppy thinking, Peake uses 21st century neuro-chemistry and brain science to explain his astonishing theory of our ability to access and understand transcendent consciousness.
Using his binary brain/mind theory of the eidolon/daemon as a framework, Peake explores and discusses - in depth, and with many personal aspects - near death experience, autism, schizophrenia , Alzheimer's , temporal lobe epilepsy , migraine, savant syndrome , among others; and reveals the ways in which these conditions serve to open the doors to cosmic awareness.
The possibility of the universe being a super-hologram comprised of digital information, and of our being in a simulation designed by our descendants,will speak loudly to many in our current high tech era.
Readers new to Peake will want to read some of his earlier works to get the full benefit of his considerable talent for educating and illuminating the reader. Anyone lucky enough to catch one of his public lectures will be richly rewarded; I have seen him speak before an audience of some 300 in New York City, and he is a superb lecturer with an astonishing range of expertise.
I highly recommend this text, which I know I will be re-reading for some time.
