From the Inside Flap
According to Greek mythology all recently dead souls have the option of returning to the world of the living. In order to do this they have to drink from the Lethe, one of the five great rivers of The Underworld. The waters of this 'River of Forgetting' wash away all memories of a previous life. The soul is then re-born on earth to live its life again.
This book is an attempt to show that the ancient Greek myth has a potential truth within its fiction. By reviewing the physics of reality, the science of perception and the neurology of the brain it suggests that we may not inevitably have to cross into the world of the dead. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is science-y in parts and upon reading it a few times it does sink in as Anthony Peake has made a massively complex subject much more digestible than I've read elsewhere by psycho-babble uber clever experts in the field. He puts it as plain and simple as possible.
What could happen to your conscienceness at the point of death?
That is the bare bones of what this book is all about. I had never really been interested in near death experiences before I read this book. I'd read a few examples of NDE's in various magazines/journals but some of the examples here are literally jaw dropping (for me). I've searched out more examples since and am astounded by some of the descriptions people give. The one in particular in this book is the avalanche chap who re-lived in 'real time' (in his mind) several days of his life as a school kid second by second, every single detail to perfection. This all happened in reality in several minutes! Fantastic example. I liked the IMAX idea. You know, when your life flashes before your eyes in the blink of an eye frame by frame in all it's high def glory. All this information is stored in our consciousness and is mostly inaccessible until a traumatic incident happens to us and the idea of the Greek mythological river Lethe, interesting stuff indeed. I don't want to give too much away as this is a very interesting read.
If you are interested in NDE's, the concept of time in conciousness and the possibility of an existence after bodily death, give this a go and if you're not it may even change the way you think about death and the fear of it.
But, if we do re-live our lives again over and over, what about those poor people who are unfortunate enough to have been through wars, ethnic cleansing, torture and any other abhorrent life situations.
proper experimentation and/or statistical evidence. Perhaps this is for the future.
THANK YOU for such a wonderful contribution. If anyone tells me that unusual things don't happen (like time shifts, telepathy or other such phenomena) I always refer them to this book.
If you want to expand your awareness and think outside of the box, this book is a definite must read.
His argument that we cheat death and keep coming back through what philosophers have dubbed; 'eternal recurrence', is persuasive! And its backed up using the latests scientific research from across the board.
Peake is an extremely lucid writer he is able to get complex ideas across to his audience in a way that allows for easy assimilation of his ideas, concepts and arguments.
This book is stimulating, intriguing and astonishing read. Anyone interested in life's big questions will find this is a must read book and a lovely edition to any eclectic library.
P.S. Do not loan this book out you will never get it back buy it keep it and treasure it!
