London, United Kingdom, May 29, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- During June, British author and dream researcher, Daniel Love, will be utilizing Kickstarter to develop a series of books that aim to program the virtual reality of your mind.
With the release of Oculus Rift, Playstation VR and Vive, 2016 has been hailed as the “year of virtual reality”. But, Daniel Love believes we are all already in possession of a far more capable device. He aims to equip you with the knowledge required to “power it up”.
Love has spent his life studying a unique hybrid state of consciousness called “lucid dreaming”. Lucid dreaming is the ability to be aware that you are dreaming, whilst dreaming. This awareness allows for complete control of the dream world.
“When one first experiences a lucid dream, often there is an air of awe and disbelief. The experience is both hugely profound and experientially almost indistinguishable from the waking world.” - Daniel Love
The brain is the most complex structure in the known universe and, because of this, Love claims that, through developing the practice of lucid dreaming, the brain could be considered a hyper-advanced biological virtual reality.
In his highly ambitious new Kickstarter project, The Lucid Dreamer’s Guide to the Cosmos, Love intends to train and hone the skills required to lucid dream, while also offering your brain a massive “software update”; a vast boost in knowledge that spans the cosmos.
Via a yearly series of books, Love will explore the major scientific themes of space, time, consciousness, reality, philosophy and much, much more. Uniquely, these books are designed to act as a form of mental programming; data uploads with which more profound and detailed dreams can be built.
The campaign, which ends July 3rd, aims to raise the funds with which to produce the first book in the series. The project also aims to expand further; to encompass scientific research, on-line content and beyond.
Love has received support from high places, including the pioneering scientist, Dr. Keith Hearne, who was responsible for the world’s first laboratory verification of lucid dreaming (1975) and inventor of the first lucid dream induction device.
“When I first heard of the project, I was thrilled. This is a huge and exciting project that will really help expand lucid dreaming. I believe this approach is exactly what is required, and I can think of no one more dedicated or capable of bringing it to life than Daniel Love.” - Dr. Keith Hearne
The Kickstarter campaign runs throughout June and ends on July 3rd at Midnight (BST). To secure your mental upgrade, you can find out more here: http://kck.st/1NSjUJN
