    Even if you decide to take everything mentioned in this book with a grain of salt it will definitely open your eyes to how our version of a rational science driven worldview is dominated by reductionists and behaviorists Every anecdote and fact is supported with a reference so you can dig further into the story and see if the relevance to the topic at hand was forced or natural A truly life changing read I don't say that lightly I found the exploration of the links between migraine epilepsy schizophrenia Alzheimer's and autism to be incredibly enlightening and I dare say it even strengthened my empathy towards a lot of other illnesses I did not initially understand

    A brilliant read by a brilliant mind

    This is a really intriguing book If you have a curiosity about the human psyche and the way we perceive the world around us then you can't miss the opportunity to read thisAnthony Peake has clearly done his research and done it well If you read Huxley and didn't feel that you uite got everything you should have out of it this book goes on to further his studies and intelligently explain of the ideas I liked that this book was easy to understand and that the author was careful to explain any part that could be confusing to the average reader This work will likely make you uestion everything you know about your own mind and the way it works and increase your desire for further knowledge I definitely recommend this book for anyone who is interested in the subject This review is based on a complementary copy from the publisher and provided through Netgalley

    Peake connects subjects that are obscured in their relations to each other and shows the reader just how intimately they are coupled While some or many have a tendency to compartmentalize areas of study he shows the bigger picture by bridging the confines of subjects such as consciousness and uantum mechanics and gives the reader a better understanding of their relation and how many areas of knowledge are needed for discerning who we are and where we come fromWhat I love the most about his ideas are that fundamentalists and pantheists alike may embrace other just a tad or wholly while remaining faithful to their chosen or traditional belief system By connecting the dots he introduces the reader with a structured foundation of facts and principles of each area of study discussed to see the whole not just the parts to see a whole man revolving My mind was left blown away and I'm excited to read of his work While this is the first book of his I've read I have been listening to various podcasts and shows on YouTube where he is a guest speaker I was introduced to Mr Peake a little over a year ago His talks are great but his work as an author at least this book is the meat and definitely shouldn't be skipped over

    How deep down the rabbit hole are you ready to go?This book deserves six stars Peake takes us on a ride through some of the strangest psychological psychic and physics phenomena in the known universe From people stuck living segments of their lives again and again people living with temporal epilepsy experiencing years of life in a single frozen moment and migraine sufferers forced to painfully peer through cracks in the fabric of reality Everything within is examined with open minded rigour useful references are provided and where possible sensible interpretations are given I found this to be the best book on a subject that may be the most important subject we will ever explore the fundamental nature of human existence

    Intriguing amazing scientific informationIn this book the author takes up his binary theory of daemon and eidolon from his earlier works continues with Aldous Huxley's work on altered states of consciousness and further builds on Huxley's concept of the brain as a reducing valve which filters and discards sensory information censors the perception of a expanded reality in order to be efficient in the immediate survivalAnthony Peake then part of the premise that a malfunctioning brain could weaken this filter and open the doors of perception this is where certain conditions can be taken to explain the scale of perceptions of the true reality which he has named “the Huxleyian Spectrum” From these premises the book contains a selection and compilation of scientific research such as the discoveries of the presence of INMT the enzyme that biosynthes the DMT can be present in the human brain the induction of altered states through sound and stroboscopic light And he continues with neurological and neurochemical documents on conditions such as migraine epileptic episodes bipolar disorder autism and schizophrenia and he discusses possible connections with his model about the opening the doors of perceptionBeing self conscious is still a mystery to science It has been discussed for millennia by various philosophies and ancient cultures and current indigenous cultures have a way of explaining it within their cosmogonies The issue of consciousness is something that can only be experienced but it has not yet been possible to define its borders where it resides or how we process reality as self aware beings Peake's binary theory somehow reminds me of the shamanic concepts of the dual nature of consciousness in Mexico and South America named the Nahual and the Tonal And the altered states of consciousness studied by Huxley that are induced by the use of sacred plants of American Indian cultures and which are achieved in conjunction with the temazcal and beat of the drum which in my opinion also have connection with the discoveries of sound for the induction of these statesThe book is not conclusive it only addresses a scientific perspective model of the mind matter interface in the search for explanations to understand the transcendent consciousness there are still pieces of the puzzle to discover and each one can draw their own conclusionsMy gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
