Each show I will take as the theme an element of my writing. Listeners will have the facility to phone in with their questions or comments.

Anthony Peake and Fairleigh Dickinson

This Fall semester 2009,  Anthony Peake's two published books will be jacketed and placed on the shelves of Fairleigh Dickinson University's library for faculty and students to use.

FDU is a private liberal arts  University in the greater New York Metropolitan area.  It sits on the Twombly estate in Madison,  New Jersey,  a commuter suburb of Manhattan.  It has campuses also in Wroxton,  England,  Tel Aviv,  Israel,  and Bergen County,  New Jersey.

I am planning a fall 2010 conference for Anthony Peake to be held at Lenfell Hall,  at the Madison campus,  in October of next year.  In the meantime,  I think his books can be explored by faculty and students in the departments of psychology and philosophy.  I hope Peake's books will be cited in a few student papers!

Watched this amazing movie a few days ago. I really did not see any ITLADIAN links until towards the the end when what is really going on is revealed .... and even then I am sure that you will not spot the shock ending.

Terrific screenplay, great acting (has John Cusack ever done a bad movie?) and a mind expanding (blowing?) concept that will have those of you who have read my first book rushing back to pages 237 to 242 of Is There Life After Death - The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die

Example of how Bohm's "Implicate Order" can be shown visually

Whilst in New York I spotted this image outside the HQ of the Pfizer Corporation. I am hoping that me using this image is okay with them (if it is not please could a representative of that company contact me and i will take it down).

The image is of a Pfizer employee called Joe who works in the Bioinnovation Center in Massachusetts. If you look closely you will see that the image is made up of pictures of all his co-workers in this unit.

A couple of nights ago I was awake in the middle of the night and I started thinking about ways in which David Bohm's concept of "Enfoldment" could be explained in a simple and graphic way. This image suddenly appeared in my mind. I argue that when we are in these semi-awake states (Hypnogogia) our Daemons can communicate more effectively. It is as if the "Doors of Perception" are slightly ajar and ideas can filter through to the semi-conscious eidolonic personality.

My Daemon had given me the answer.

Imagine a picture similar to this of yourself. This picture is composed of micro-images of every human being on the planet. When looked at from a distance it is just a very detailed image of you. However, and this is the important point that I suspect the Pfizer image designer has not done, is that contained within the micro-images will be an image identical to the larger one .... in every respect. As such this image of yourself will, again, contain images of everybody else on the planet. But it gets even more interesting. Imagine that each of all the other images were designed in the same way (containing the micro-images of everybody else).

This is exactly what David Bohm was trying to get across in his dual concepts of "Enfoldment" and the "Implicate Order" - the idea that the whole contained the parts and that each part contains the whole. He used the analogy of a holographic image (smash a holographic image then look at the parts of the image under laser light and it will be seen that each part contains a denuded version of the original image not, as would be expected, the part).

I need to give this idea more thought but I did present it to the audience at my lecture yesterday and it was received very well. I may acquire the software that generates these images and see what can be done.

On Saturday 21st of November 2009 I will be attending an "Open Dialogue" meeting at Queen Mary College in London. This has been arranged by the Scientific and Medical Network (SMN). Under the title of Infinite Potential: The Legacy of David Bohm such lumimaries as Prof. Basil Hiley and Dr. F David Peat will be discussing the scientific philosophy of this great man (the person I try to honour in my term The Bohmian IMAX. I am hoping to discuss this analogy with David and, hopefully, Prof. Hiley.

Anthony Peake on UK National Radio!

Sorry about the late announcement but we have just heard that Anthony's BBC Manchester and BBC Lancashire interviews this week caused a a certain degree of interest.

Indeed such was the interest that Anthony will be interviewed live, in the BBC Five Live studios tonight (Saturday 10th October 2009 at Midnight). The interview will run into very early Sunday morning and finish at around 00:30.

For those of you outside of the UK BBC Five Live is a national radio station and is probably the most popular station in the country. The potential audience is millions although the reality will probably be tens of thousands. Indeed the show is also broadcasy on virtually every local BBC station as well.

So if you are in the UK just tune into Radio Five Live tonight. For those of you outside the UK you can listen in on the Five Live website which is:

You will find full detals on the site if you wish to phone in .... full details can be found at:

Look forward to hearing from you!

A story of the Buddha...

Hello guys!...Im sorry ... Im posting after a long time....Forgive me!.......but DORJE`S post helped me to come over and post this beautiful story about the Buddha...its at once ITLADic as well as Poignant....
Once the Buddha was walking from one town to another with a few of his disciples. While they were traveling, they happened to pass a lake.They stopped there and the Buddha told one of his disciples, "I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake." The young disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that right at that moment, a bullock cart had started crossing the lake. As a result, the water had become very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, "How can I give this muddy water to the Buddha to drink!?"So he went back and told the Buddha, "The water in there is very muddy. I don't think it is fit to drink!" After about half an hour, the Buddha again asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake.This time too he found that the lake was muddy. He returned and informed the Buddha about the same. Once again, a few minutes later the Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake.The disciple reached the shore only to find that the lake absolutely clean with crystal clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked pure enough to drink. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to the Buddha.Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said,"See what you did to make the water clean. You just let it be and the mud settled down on its own, and you got clear water!"
And then he addressed his disciples:" Your mind is just like that lake ! When it is disturbed, it gets all muddy and confused. So just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don't have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.

Live Radio Phone-In : BBC Lancashire 7th October 2009

The night before last a short interview with me was broadcast by BBC Lancashire. This generated such interest with not only the listeners but also the staff of the radio station that I have been invited back to do a two-hour phone-in this coming Wednesday (7th October 2009). This will be broadcast from 2200 to 2300. This may prove to be a really interesting hour. My last phone in was with LBC in London and we had an amazing three hours.

The timing is good for any listeners in the USA and Canada. The programme can be listened to live on-line at:

Another Web-Based Review

Interesting to contrast how two people can read the same book (see previous posting) and come up with totally different observations:

In my opinion this is one of the best short descriptions of Cheating The Ferryman that I have encountered. And that includes may own attempts!
