Funzing Brighton – The Science of Out-of-Body Experiences
9 April @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm BST£13.20
We’ve all heard of an Out of Body Experience, but is there a scientific explanation for it? How are they connected to a Near Death Experience? And where does Quantum Mechanics come in to play? Join author Anthony Peake for a mind-bending look into this complex & unique study.
For centuries people have claimed that, under certain circumstances, they can leave the body and perceive reality from a totally different viewpoint. This is now known as the “out-of-body experience” and is closely related to two other surprisingly common occurrences; the Near Death Experience (NDE) and “Remote Viewing.”
Many books have been written on the subject but, until very recently, nobody has attempted a scientifically-based explanation of the experience that takes as its starting point that these experiences are actually real rather than simply “hallucinations.”
In 2011 internationally acclaimed author Anthony Peake decided to focus his attention on the OBE. He had already written books on the NDE and time perception and he was keen to understand more clearly what is actually taking place when somebody feels that they are out of their body. In that year his book “The Out-of-Body Experience” was published by Watkins. This proposed a simply stunning model: that these experiences are not only real, but they can be explained using modern science; specifically quantum mechanics, neurochemistry and consciousness studies.
In this unique talk, Anthony will present powerful evidence that the OBE and its associated experiences, offer us proof that the universe is a far more complex place than can be found in our wildest dreams (literally).
