This month on Film, Literature and the New World Order we’re joined by Will Morgan of The Sync Book to discuss Aldous Huxley’s final novel, Island. A philosophical exploration of Huxley’s imagined utopia, Island raises the question of what paradise looks like and how it can be achieved. Join James and Will for this exploration of the subject from two different viewpoints and discover more about Huxley’s most overlooked work.
Philip K. Dick was a hugely influential writer who drew upon his own life to address the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences of all kinds. He was a prolific author and many of his books were turned into popular films such as Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, and Minority Report. This book has been written with the cooperation of several close acquaintances and looks to examine his work as well as the socio-political-cultural environment in which he lived. It will be of great interest to any fan of Philip K. Dick or science fiction in general, as well as anyone who grew up the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Peake attempts to place Dick's extraordinary experiences known as 2-3-74 in a broader picture. He will also present fascinating evidence that Dick may have been, as he termed the state in many of his novels and short stories, a "precog" - a person that can see the future.

Anthony Peake is a writer who deals with borderline areas of human consciousness. He graduated from the University of Warwick and the London School of Economics. His first book, Is There Life After Death? was published in 2006 and since then he has gone on to develop his own ideas together with exploring the latest areas of research in his field. His fourth book, Making Sense of Near-Death Experiences, is a collaborative effort with some of the world’s leading authorities on the near death phenomenon. He was very honoured to be asked to be one of the editors as well as contributing a chapter. His seventh book, A Life of Philip K Dick The Man Who Remembered the Future, is a departure from his previous works in that it is a mixture of biography, literary criticism and psychological/neurological analysis. His eighth book, provisionally entitled Personal Immortality? The Persistence of Consciousness Beyond the Brain, is a joint project with Professor Ervin Laszlo. This will be published in 2014.

Hour 1: Alex Robinson. Is western society trauma based? From birth to school, work to death, life is deemed rather traumatic and it stops people from progressing into new and exciting areas of thinking and socializing. Have adults forgotten the true meaning of play time? How much can we learn about how to be happy from simply observing the habits of children, play, explore and be curious. Hour 2: Alex Robinson with Alan Abbadessa Green. Excellence in life is certainly not assured, what works for one may not work for someone else, it is important to find your own path through life and allow yourself to be open to new ideas and possibilities just in case you missed something.

Isn't it interesting if you try to regress your thoughts back by repeating the question "How did I get here?" you somehow trace back to a really profound realization that blows your mind? Is the Moon the most powerful influence on our minds? Is there really any new ideas under the sun at all or are we just reinventing what has always been done? Watch Feb 14 Mark LeClair on YouTube

An extremely entertaining and informative show, it's not every day that you get to delve into the nature of reality itself and return on the other side unscathed and enlightened. Consciousness can change reality almost as much as reality can change your consciousness, the universe is a huge place with many unexplained phenomenon. Why is it that men can't find anything in the fridge? How is it possible for people to move from one location to another seemingly instantaneously? Why is consciousness within the human psyche understanding that which science cannot explain? Watch Feb 13 Anthony Peake and Tom Campbell on YouTube

An interesting discussion about the nature of predictive programming and why science fiction isn't necessarily fiction, but in fact based on real occurrences and in some cases accidentally come up with new inventions, or new visions for the future of humanity.

Numbers & architecture, lay lines and strange coincidences, the occult & sacred geometry, topics which are often shrouded in mystery, interpretation and emotional people who see a meaning in everything. Now it's time for the facts, number sequencing, the numbers 33, 666, 555, 432 and much more, it's quite amazing to notice how much of the earth, the moon, the sun and indeed the universe seem to be built upon mathematics of this nature while man is largely unaware of it, and even when becoming aware, possess a lack of understanding on why these interesting phenomena exist. So if we let go of our assumptions and just go back to the data and evidence, it teaches us to remain open minded and welcome possibilities whatever the implications might be.

The world is both physical and metaphysical, not one or the other, you can either move a chair in 2 seconds or study to be a telekinetic monk for 60 years and then move the chair.

There is a contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world stage via a collective psychosis of titanic proportions. This mind-virus—which Native Americans have called "wetiko"—covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering people oblivious to their own madness and compelling them to act against their own best interests. Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions, and personal experience, author Paul Levy shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is its own antidote, which once recognized can help us wake up and bring sanity back to our society.
