Is there life after death? Peake (Is There Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die) expands on and offers proof for his concept C that at the time of physical death, life slows to a point where one begins to actually repeat life, guided by a super self he calls the Daemon. Peake demonstrates a synthesis of thought from ancient theologies to classical philosophy with a whirlwind tour of the major western and eastern religions, plus philosophers from Plato’s allegory of the cave to Nietzsche’s doctrine of eternal return. He deposits the reader in a crash course of quantum physics highlighting the works of David Bohm, Erwin Schrödinger, Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, and Stephen Hawking. Consciousness, precognition, déjà vu, near death experiences, and reincarnation are all explored in answering what happens after a person dies. Heady stuff.
VERDICT Overall a superlative job of laying out complex discoveries in quantum science and its implications for the human experience, including death. This is for readers ready to connect the dots of religion, modern science, and rational thought on life’s biggest question.
