J.W.Dunne (“Intrusions?,” “The Jumping Lions of Borneo,” “Serial Universe”) first published his ground-breaking theory of time in 1927. Spurred by dreams and other personal experiences to an intense interest in the nature of time and human perception, Dunne designed an experiment whose purpose was to isolate the barrier dividing our knowledge of the past from that of the future. Conversant with the concepts and language of physics – which he deemed inadequate to describe a world that is largely experiential – Dunne weaves an intriguing, intelligent, and convincing theory that has earned him a place of honor among the twentieth century’s brightest minds.
– Brilliant theory that puts Dunne in the ranks of Einstein, Hawking, and other pioneers of physics and consciousness research
– A scientific experiment to probe the nature of time and the barrier dividing knowledge of the past and future
– Contains one of the first scientific arguments for human immortality
– Explores the relationship between dreams, time, perception, and reality
– As original and thought-provoking today as it was three quarters of a century ago
