Picked it up at Barnes and Noble, and it's absolutely facinating and I'm only starting the second chapter. There is a happy coincidence, or maybe not who knows, in the prologue the author Anthony Peake, (never heard of him before, he's English, a graduate of the University of Warwick, the University of Westminister and the London School of Economics, also a member of the International Ass. of Near-Death Studies), talks about movies, in particular Goundhog Day, which I blogged about awhile back. The interesting thing is that while he saw it differntly, in the end his opinion was basically the same as mine. His perception of several movies is they, by accident or design, provide a clue to the reality of reality.
To quote briefly from the Foreward, written by Dr. Bruce Greyson, "But in fact Tony Peake does not think that we survive the death of our bodies; he argues instead that we do not die at all, that bodily death as we usually think of it is in fact not possible." and more, "What Peake suggestsis that when we appear to others to die, we in fact begin our lives all over again - and again and again and again in seemingly endless succession. and more, another thought I've posted about, "Peake shows how the physical world around you is completely dependent on your perception of it. If your conciousness ceased to exist, so would your universe, along with any record of its existence. Thus, this understanding of quantum physics demands that you never die." and more, "In your universe other people can die, but in their universes they continue to live. Likewise, you will surely die in other peoples universes, but just as surely you cannot die in your own universe."
As I said I'm just starting the second chapter and will do more posts on the book as I go along. But so far, I have to say I highly recommend this book, it's unlike any other book on life after death, reincarnation, or anything else occult that I've studied, but Mr. Peake has some facinating ideas and I look forward to learning more from him.
