Tony: This was published on my Musing in Obama's America blogsite, and is a precursor to press releases, so thought I would post it here also:
Anthony Peake, British binary mind theorist and author from Wirrals, England, who charmed the crowds on Madison Avenue last summer, is co-founding the Ferryman Foundation with a Boston-based American colleague and a New York City associate.
Although the foundation is in its infancy, it has already attracted the interest of dozens of scholars and scientists globally.
The foundation's function will be to form a compendium of scholars who will facilitate debate and dialectic, and obtain funding to add to- and greatly expand upon - the research which Peake has conducted regarding the binary mind, and a hidden, "second self", which resides within human consciousness, directing and guiding the individual in life, and at the point of death.
Peake has termed this self "the Daemon", and calls its purpose at death "cheating the ferryman", based on the myth of antiquity about Charon the Ferryman, who ferries the dead across the River Styx.
Peake believes that the Daemon cheats the ferryman, and that we never arrive at the realm of the dead. Each time an individual dies, Charon is cheated out of yet another customer, via a function he calls the Bohmian I-MAX, based on the principles of David Bohm.
Peake is author of Is There Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die (Chartwell Books, 2006) and The Daemon (Arcturus Publishing, 2008), and has a trilogy of books pending publication.
Perhaps a conference at some date in the near future can be arranged with a bit of help from the Manhattan council of the arts and sciences!
More updates later.....
