An Experiment With Time

Roald Dahl's 'BFG' caught dreams with a net and trapped them in bottles.
Lucky him: the rest of us make do with remembering snippets and trying to make sense of them.
J. W. Dunne tried to close the gap in our understanding with the groundbreaking 'An Experiment with Time'.
First, he described his own precognitive dreams and concluded that they foresaw our individual experiences to come.
Then he puts together an extraordinary theory about how we are all able to see into the future.
Throw in deja vu and life after death and you have a real headspin of a book that is perfect for fans of Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time'.

John William Dunne (1875-1949) was a British philosopher, author, aeronautical engineer and soldier.
After fighting in the Boer War, he became an aircraft designer, pioneering the first certified stable plane.
He also invented a new way to practise dry fly fishing before developing an interest in speculative philosophy.
He came up with the theory of Serialism, which he expounded in a series of five books, beginning with 'An Experiment with Time'.
