Gary Lachman is the author The Return of Holy Russia: Apocalyptic History, Mystical Awakening, and the Struggle for the Soul of the World as well as over twenty other books about the influence of esotericism on politics and society. He has written biographies of Carl Jung, Aleister Crowley, Rudolf Steiner, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Emanuel Swedenborg, P. D. Ouspensky, and Colin Wilson. His newest book is Dreaming Ahead of Time: Experiences with Precognitive Dreams, Synchronicities and Coincidences.
Here he compares the standard, Newtonian view of time with other approaches. Einstein, for example, described the past and the future as stubbornly persisting illusions. Hermann Minkowski, who taught Einstein, referred to time as the fourth dimension. P. D. Ouspensky, the Russian philosopher who worked with G. I. Gurdjieff, postulated a six-dimensional universe with three dimensions of time. Even the pre-Socratic philosophers, argued about the relationship between the flow of time and the perfection of eternal timelessness.
