What are the doors of perception? How can they be opened? Is it possible there could be another alternative reality? Join author and consciousness researcher Anthony Peake for a mind-bending look at extensive research into our brains, reality and the extraordinary work of Aldous Huxley.
Opening the Doors of Perception will update Aldous Huxley’s work and suggest processes and procedures whereby man can, indeed, perceive reality in its true glory. It is suggested that there is a scale of perceptions whereby the doors are slowly opened and, bit by bit, they reveal the true nature of ‘reality’.
Most human beings perceive the doors of perception as being securely closed. However, there are occasions when the doors become slightly ajar and allow fleeting glimpses of other realities, or what the Gnostics called ‘The Pleroma’. For others the doors are prized open by certain neurological processes; starting with migraines and progressing through various ‘altered-states’ such as temporal lobe epilepsy, bi-polar syndrome, autism and finally, when the doors are fully open, schizophrenia. Anthony shows how we can we tap into alternative realities more positively and safely.
This talk will be based upon material from Anthony’s book Opening The Doors of Perception, and will introduce an exciting concept he calls “The Huxleyian Spectrum”.
