Astonishing - and gratifying - to see how much interest has been generated in Tony's ideas since the day I first picked up his book. (I felt exhausted just reading his forthcoming appearances schedule.) It's very clear, both from this Blog and several private conversations, that a great many people have made the step of viewing Peake Theory as something that concerns them in their lives here and now, rather than something that might concern them in future at the point of their death. What hasn't yet emerged (or if it has, I've missed it) is a coherent insight into how best to lead our lives in the light of the theory. In his book, Tony does, of course, allow for the possibility of changing our extended Groundhog Day, but I found myself unclear about the evidence supporting this belief. If my life is an extension in a four dimensional space-time continuum, where is the opportunity to change it; and if such an opportunity did, in fact, arise, what would be the motivation for doing so? I've always thought Tony has done sterling service in presenting a viewpoint that takes the findings of modern physics seriously. The next step would seem to be to work out the implications of that viewpoint. Any ideas?
