'Anthony Peake is a consciousness theorist and perhaps the ideal candidate to write A Life Of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered The Future, a new biography of a novelist obsessed with probing the nature of reality.
Peake’s book attempts to put Dick’s visionary experiences into a wider context, advancing the notion that Dick’s imagination might truly have been a precognitive gateway to the future. Peake’s biography is the first to follow the publication of The Exegesis, Dick’s own eight year attempt to write himself into an understanding of his experiences.
Terms you will hear in this interview include: “ITLADian” which acronymically refers to Peake’s first book, Is There Life After Death, and denotes his philosophy of consciousness, which he has been developing through several books; “The Daemon” relates to the theory of the higher self, a separate consciousness that may potentially exist within, and/or communicate with, the normal waking consciousness of the self.
