Imaginal Inspirations is hosted by David Lorimer, Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and Chair of the Galileo Commission, an academic movement dedicated to expanding the evidence base of a science of consciousness.

These cells are dormant in the caterpillar but at a critical point of development they create the new form and structure which becomes the butterfly.
