Dr Alan Roberts of the Eugene Halliday Society (formerly ISHVAL) lectured in autumn 2007 on Dunne’s An Experiment with Time. Thanks to Michelle for this one!

Lecture content

  • Alan Roberts begins by discussing an article on lucid dreaming from the Sunday Times (“Sleep your way to the top”)
  • At 8 minutes he turns to Dunne, first giving a short account of the aeronautical work

We then hear about

  • Dunne’s style of explanation and how he draws the reader in
  • The details of Dunne’s investigation of dreams
  • The context of time theories in physics during the early twentieth century
  • Dunne’s theory of time and consciousness (serialism)
  • How Dunne’s theory relates to Tibetan ‘long body’
