About Anthony Peake

I am a writer interested in the links between dreams and "Altered States of Consciousness". I have written two books. The first suggests a radical new theory regarding what happens to human consciousness at the point of death and the second investigates the proposition that human consciousness has two distinct elements. Central to both these books are phenomenon linked to the dream state including hypnogogic imagery, lucid dreaming, Out-Of-Body-Experiences and Distance Viewing. I am in the process of writing a third book that will focus solely on these "ecsomatic" experiences.
My favourite dream book is J.W. Dunne's "An Experiment With Time". Indeed I am delighted that my publisher has asked me to write a fourth book which will be a version of Dunne's classic updated in the light of 21st century science. I will be working on material for this book over the next year and I am keen to have the involvement of IASD members in this work.

My notes on the IASD

I was introduced to the IASD by my friend Dr. Arthur Funkhouser.

For me the most important aspect of the IASD is the scientific and neurological analysis of the dream-state and attempting to understand the role and purpose of this unique but universal experience. We need to understand if dreams are simply an epiphenomenon of brain processes or are they a portal to another level of consciousness denied the waking brain. We need to understand more about subjects like Lucid Dreaming, Hypnogogia, the OOB, dream precognitions and Distance Viewing. Are these real and if they are how can it be proven empirically? I am keen to find answers and I am sure that the IASD is an organisation that shares my aims and objectives.

On my website FORUM I have a section devoted to Precognitive Dreaming. Recently there has also been considerable activity involving "Lucid Dreaming". This can be found at:
