Changing history

Posted on

Star gazing can be an inspirational pass time. Even, it turns out, if you’re not the one doing it. While driving my stepdaughter home on boxing night she became enthralled by the starscape of a perfectly clear sky,  describing the sheer beauty of our universe by picking out the constellations she could see. Not surprisingly, […]

Welcome to my worlds

Posted on

For as long as the human race can remember, we have been fascinated by the strange feeling that our world, indeed our universe, is not the only one. That other realms are but a membrane, or a small shift of consciousness away. From things seen out of the corner of the eye to dreams both […]

The human hot spot

Posted on

It’s been a couple of days since I posted here. The reason? Some of the places I love to spend time don’t have the best internet connection. I could feign guilt and remorse but if I’m honest I’ve had a wonderful time in the Cotswolds and regret nothing, brazen wild thing that I am. It […]

Let me take you by the gland

Posted on

Having talked about our powers of perception and our our ability to see images even when we are asleep, with eyes closed, it seemed churlish not to mention an intriguing little organ, nestled in the brain, at about eye level, called the pineal gland. Quite a lot more has been written about this small, pine […]

dreams or dreamer

I’d like to ponder another question. Actually it’s a variation on an old question but is of a quite similar nature. Which came first, the dream or the dreamer? It’s often quite interesting how different ideas, while wandering around the corridors formed by the gyri and sulci of the brain, bump into each other, stop […]

Living the dream

Posted on

Having ascertained that as far as our brain and our neural physiology are concerned, our imagined activities and our dreams are indistinguishable from our every day lives, and that our perception seems to have an influence on the reality it perceives, perhaps the phrase, “living the dream”, may have a more literal interpretation than previously […]

A reality only dreamed of

Posted on

Working on the basis that what we call reality is as much about our perception as it is about that which is perceived, and postulating that this vests considerable power in out perception, it might well be worth studying perception in isolation. It might at first seem a little problematic to suggest we can study […]

Are you for real?

I began blogging here with a reply to a question I’m frequently asked by clients. Now, mischievous as ever, I’m going to turn the tables and ask you a question. More precisely I’d like you to ask yourself the question. Are you for real? If so, what do you think that means? What is the […]
