Author Anthony Peake
Anthony Peake (born 1954)grew up on the Wirral, near Liverpool, England. He was educated at Wirral Grammar School, Warwick University and the London School of Economics. He is a member of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, The Scientific & Medical Network and the Society for Psychic Research.
In his previous two books Anthony has presented a potentially paradigm-changing hypothesis that suggests that human consciousness survives the physical death of the body by falling out of time. He calls this process Cheating The Ferryman. In his second book, The Daemon- A Guide To Your Extraordinary Secret Self, he focuses in on one major element of this hypothesis – that all human beings consist of two centres of consciousness. Borrowing from Gnostic terminology He call these “The Daemon” and “The Eidolon”. In turn “Cheating The Ferryman” seems to offer a radically new, and scientifically based, explanation for such phenomena as “Near-Death Experience”, “Deja Vu”, “Precognition”, “Angelic Encounters”, “Doppelgangers” and many other mysteries of consciousness.
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. In July of 2009 he was a speaker at a prestigious “Platform Event” at the National Theatre in London, and two weeks later he presented a lecture to over 300 people in Manhattan, New York.
Since 2006 Anthony has continued to collect evidence for “Cheating The Ferryman” and has been contacted by many hundreds of individuals from round the world who have presented him with stunning personal accounts that support his theory. In turn Anthony has made contact with a handful of the world’s leading experts working in the areas of science central to his hypothesis.
As far as Anthony is concerned “Cheating The Ferryman” is a work-in-progress. For this purpose he has created a very active FORUM (www.anthonypeake.com/forum). This FORUM is open to all and Anthony actively seeks out contributions from his readers and other individuals and organisations interested in assisting in developing this hypothesis.
In November 2009 Anthony began a regular slot on BBC Radio Merseyside.
After living in many parts of the United Kingdom Anthony has returned to his roots on The Wirral where he continues to explore the implications of “Cheating The Ferryman” and in his spare time worries about the decline of his beloved football team, Tranmere Rovers.
