The science behind the writers’ experience of characters developing their own will and taking objective forms.

June 20, 2023 - The renowned author Ramesh Chidambaram has released his latest thought-provoking book, Embodied Imaginations: Fictional Characters Making Experiential Crossings into Real Life: An Unusual Phenomenon. This ground-breaking book from the Motilal Banarsidass Publishing House explores the fascinating phenomenon of fictitious characters manifesting as real-world entities.

Embodied Imaginations deeply explores the enthralling experiences shared by authors who have witnessed the astounding development of their characters’ distinct personalities and independent actions. To the authors’ amazement and astonishment, these characters begin to prescribe their own tales, influencing and reshaping the narrative trajectory. Even more astonishing is the fact that these literary characters transcend the confines of imagination, materializing in the objective world and becoming perceptible not only to their creators but to others as well.

In this engaging work, Chidambaram poses intriguing questions that obscure the line between consciousness and creation. Can the capacity of the human mind generate quasi-conscious beings? Can thoughts materialize into forms that can be seen, heard, or even touched? Embodied Imaginations takes the reader on a journey through an investigation based on personal anecdotes from various authors, providing scientific evidence to support the existence of these mental constructs.

The new book investigates the complex relationship between spirituality, philosophy, and science, going well beyond the domain of creative writing. Chidambaram Ramesh weaves these disciplines together to shed light on this enigmatic recurring aspect of the creative process. This book reveals the role of imagination in moulding external reality by combining theoretical claims with experimental evidence. This book will introduce one to the mysterious and profound part of creative writing that you never knew existed before.

Jeffrey J. Kripal, J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Religion and Philosophical Thought at Rice University, commends Chidambaram Ramesh’s remarkable contribution, stating, “This new book is a veritable compendium of the impossible, which is not impossible at all. [...] Chidambaram Ramesh is our gentle and gifted spiritual guide here into this most shocking of all possibilities.”

The book is now available in leading bookstores and online retailers worldwide.
