The Daemon: A Guide to Your Extraordinary Secret Self

Anthony Peake

For the last two hundred years brain scientists have been aware of the physiological duality of the human brain. It consists of two virtually identical hemispheres joined by a mass of nerves called the corpus callosum. In recent years surgery has developed to the extent that this ’bridge’ can be cut and in so doing communication severed between the two hemispheres...These patients have become, in effect, two people in one body. However certain neurologists believe that this duality is present at all times, the operation simply allows the phenomenon to be more easily observed. Both the evidence from deep hypnotism and the curious psychological state described as Multiple Personality Syndrome supports this belief. Psychologists have become aware of this other entity and it has been termed the Hidden Observer. This entity also manifests itself in individuals who suffer from schizophrenia. In all cases the being, termed the Daemon in acknowledgement of the Gnostic roots of this belief, shows some interesting skills, the most marked being an ability to foretell the future.
