Imagination at Midnight

Recently I gave a talk to the Theosophical Society here in London about my book Lost Knowledge of the Imagination. Here’s a link to the video of the talk. I’m always happy to speak at the TS. The audience is always intelligent and friendly and open to new ideas.

In other news, I’m being interviewed on the late Art Bell’s radio program, Midnight in the Desert, this Wednesday evening, December 12, at 11:00 Pacific Time. I’m getting up at 6:00 AM on Thursday morning in order to do it, compliments of the time difference between London and the west coast. Dave Schrader is at the helm these days. I did wonder if they knew that Midnight on the Desert is the title of an autobiographical book by J. B. Priestley? They do now because I told them. In any case, it looks like it will be a broad conversation about my work in general. They take questions, so if you are up and listening, please check in.

  1. Gary, A bit over a year ago I read your Caretakers of the Cosmos. It was a turning point for me. You opened many doors and gave me a renewed appreciation for this life (which is no small thing!). I enjoyed your books on imagination and consciousness immensely as well. After reading your book on imagination, I stumbled across a book about lucid dreaming (by Robert Waggoner) and from there picked up the work of Jane Roberts. You always come to mind when I am pouring over her work. She was a medium, who always maintained that she didn’t really understand what she was doing, yet felt it was important to explore the “inner realm”. Colin Wilson always comes to mind as well. I wonder if he was aware of her work (she passed away in 84). I have even checked the indexes of your books to see if she is mentioned but maybe I brushed over the mention before I knew about her. Either she somehow has not made it to your radar, or there is some reason you have omitted her in your studies, in which case, I would be interested to know (if you care to spare the time.) Also, I thought if you dont know about her, you might want to look into her. I am a bit of a fangirl right now, digesting all I can about her at the moment. It is similar to what I did with your work a year ago; buy as many books as I can and read as fast as I can 🙂 Thanks so much for your work! I haven’t read the new one yet, but I plan to get to all of them when time allows. Bravo on Caretakers. Did I say that book changed my life? Thanks again!

    1. Many thanks for your comments Jennifer. I do know of Jane Roberts and Seth, having come across her work many years ago. I haven’t had a reason to write about it yet, but who knows, perhaps in the future. Colin Wilson does write about here somewhere, but I can’t seem to find exactly where. But I know I’ve read it. Thank you for your warm words about Caretakers. It is a very personal book for me – it spells out how I see the world and our place in it, so for it to have made an impact on you is very encouraging. All the best, Garry
