Experiment with Time
Experiment with Time by J. Dunne was an accomplished English iw engineer and a designer of Britian’s early military aircraft. His An Experiment with Time, first published insparked a great deal of scientific interest in–and controversy about–his new model of multidimensional time.
A series of strange, troubling precognitive dreams including a vision of the then fu J. A series of strange, troubling precognitive dreams including a vision of the then future catastrophic eruption of Mt.
Pelee on the island of Martininque in led Dunne to re-evaluate the meaning and significance of dreams. Could dreams be a blend of memories of past and future events? What was most upsetting about his dreams was that they contradicted the accepted model of time as a series of events flowing only one way: What if time wasn’t like that at all?
All of this prompted Dunne to think about time in an entirely new way. To do this, Dunne made, as he put it,”an extremely cautious” investigation in a “rather novel direction. The result was a challenging scientific theory of the “Infinite Regress,” in which time, consciousness, and the universe are seen as serial, existing in four dimensions.
Astonishingly, Dunne’s proposed model of time accounts for many experimentto life’s mysteries: Here in print again is the book English playwright expeimento novelist J. Priestley called “one of the most fascinating, most curious, and perhaps the most duhne books of this age.

However, it is a very difficult book indeed. The writer is at pains to be clear and he does a good job of this but you have to be of a mathematical or analytical bent to experimentoo anything out of this book and I am afraid that I am not.
Although I probably read every word, I did not study every word and so it must sit in my library where my copy of Hawkins’ coh Brief History of Time’ sits – as read but not truly comprehended. Still, the thesis remains interesting – that there is, logically, a perceiving soul seated above the person who is taking in sense impressions from the ‘real’ world, one that can see into past and future and whose indistinct impressions can form a dream or altered state awareness of events that are yet to take place as much it can make use of its remembrance of things past.
I cannot evaluate ddunne in the slightest but the work – from someone who has an engineers’ determination that his analysis should mw logical tiepmo does have the virtue of ensuring that this ignorant reader is not automatically dismissive of any thesis that does not accord with obvious sensory impressions of the material world.
As for the experience of precognition itself as opposed to the theorythe material is persuasive without allowing a fixed view. The phenomenon appears to be something to be explained and, although there may be adequate materialist explanations in due course, it is not scientifically literate to assume that a classically materialist explanation is the only one. Dunne refers to the beginnings of quantum theory and we now know dinne the nature of matter is far more complex than anything he or say Eddington might have expected in the nu period so contemporary cunne are just a little kw certain of their ground in rejecting unusual possibilities than previous generations might have been.
The book clearly poses questions that still require a definitive experimentk over eighty years later. May 19, Katelis Viglas rated it it was amazing Shelves: Each philosopher often has a theory of time, but there isn’t any other which intrigues so much the imagination, as the obscure and, at the same time proved in mathematical diagrams, theory of this forgotten aeuronautical engineer. The mathematics of dream Excellent.
The mathematics of dreams, time and eternity. But I don’t believe that a demonstrated proof of dreem prediction is included in the book.
The problem is the mixing of the dreaming subjec with the human history as a whole. If a singular person can dream the future, he will not predict only his own future, but of whole humanity. This is what this text explicitly says. As for ddunne famous contribution to the theory of the simultaneous experience of time, subjective and universall, is very well e, by so many examples in history. Nov 17, Amy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I’ve been borrowing this book from the library for many many years.
I’m ecstatic it’s back in print! I still don’t know how I feel about Dunne’s theorybasically, that our dreams are memories from the future. But it’s something that makes sense no matter how far fetched it sounds A regular person can easily understand the text; it’s not all heavy-handed scientific terms. Feb 13, Carolyn rated it really liked it Shelves: Agatha Christie’s comment after reading this book: I did feel from that moment onwards a great sensation of comfort and a truer knowledge of serenity than I had ever obtained before.

Un experimento con el tiempo : J. W. Dunne :
It encourages you to record your dreams and look for predictions. Really challenges out everyday view of time! Sep 11, Luis Damian Robles rated it liked it Shelves: This book is interesting not only in theory but in presentation. Although Dunne seems excited about his discoveries, his enthusiasm does not muddle the preciseness of his observations. Given the burden of empirical proof, the scientific validity of the book will always be called into qu This book is interesting not only in theory but in presentation.
Given the burden of empirical proof, the scientific validity of the book will always be called into question. A previous reviewer believes that “the main problem arises with the writer’s assumption of time having an unlimited number of dimensions. This is a statement that Dunne does not even try to prove at any point of his otherwise rather meticulous analysis. He has no recourse but to assume that time has dimensions like space because humanity has rather limited tools of perception for the purpose of such a study.
If time has dimensions, then it will take time to measure any unit of time, and one will need another unit to measure the measuring time, and so on, until infinity. In such a model, real time would be the unattainable border of this infinite series. What this reviewer regarded as “mind-boggling philosophical statements” I found to be charming intuitive gems: Today, as Professor McKendrick points out, nearly all the functions of our bodies are operating towards the end of the adequate nutrition of the grey matter.
And it now appears that, apart from its self-sustaining and self-developing activities, the brain serves as a machine for teaching the embryonic soul to think. Borges later wrote an essay incorporating elements of the preface called “Time and J.
Since the essay can be found easily enough, here is my translation of the preface, written in I recall none more admirable than the one on this volume. It is not merely for show; it ignites our interest in the text and sure enough the text does not disappoint. It is conversational in character and opens up marvelous possibilities for our conception of the world. Dunne was an engineer, not a man of letters.
Aeronautics is indebted to him for an invention which proved its efficiency in the First World War.
His logical and mathematical mind was opposed to all things mystical. He arrived at his strange theory via a statistical study of his nightly dreams. He explained and defended the theory in three volumes that provoked a clamor of polemic. Wells accused of him of taking the first chapter of his “The Time Expdrimento pub. Dunne proposes an infinite series of times that flow in and out and because of one another.
He assures us that upon our death we shall be handed the happy reins of eternity. Mw shall recover all of the instants of our lives and compose them in sunne manner is most pleasant to us. God and our friends and Shakespeare shall collaborate in this. Jul 28, Aagave rated it liked it.
Interesting argument that is sloppily written. Logic clear if you can get an engineer’s undisciplined prose. Sep 10, Anthony Devine rated it it jww amazing.
Absolutely loved this book, gives a brand new perspective on dreams and reality.
