Mindscape Issue 3

Mindscape Issue 3
Without our unique human consciousness, you and I would be sitting in a tree eating bananas. Tempting as that sounds after a journey on the London Underground in a suit at the height of summer, my consciousness makes me aware of the vastness and complexity of the universe. The ability to think beyond the next banana is a gift.

We’re all guilty of taking this gift for granted. The moments of sheer awe and elation we experience when we make this discovery or connection between elements of the mystery, balances out the less pleasant elements of consciousness. Like doing your taxes or sitting in a sweaty underground box beneath a city. One person who never stops making connections is Anthony Peake. An author and explorer in the largest, least discovered realm in the known universe: Peake’s work on Near Death Experiences and immortal consciousness make fascinating and provocative reading.

As long as we’ve been a conscious species, we have been plagued by horrible visions and terrifying apparitions. We know, or at least most of us believe now that these things are not real, at least in the basic sense of the word. But still we regularly experience ghosts, demons and alien beings in our sleep, and on the fringes of consciousness, and even in broad daylight. But is it all a trick of the mind? Nick Pope, the ‘Man from the Ministry’ who spent twenty years investigating UFOs and reports of aliens, spoke to us about some of the fascinating cases of contact from unidentified conscious beings in Australia.

Sadly, I don’t have space to go into all of the fascinating articles this magazine contains because quite simply, there are so many of them! This is a truly independent magazine, a rare commodity these days, and a truly exciting prospect. Mindscape, there’s a whole universe in there.
