Thomas Sheridan is an author, artist and film maker from Dublin, Ireland who came to international recognition in 2011 with his book Puzzling People: the Labyrinth of the Psychopath. A former rock musician, corporate communication consultant and stand-up comic, Sheridan has used his arsenal of past experiences to help both himself and others to navigate the often surreal pathological landscape of mayhem and mysteries - from history to advertising, dogma to deceptions - that we as a human species often find ourselves caught within.
In recent times, his work has been featured in some of the world's largest media outlets as the interest in his work into serial killers, occult history and mind control cults continues to grow, and has resulted in Thomas Sheridan becoming a much sought after public speaker due to his entertaining, if at times, hilariously funny and informative style of presentation. Sheridan offers a holistic approach to all the topics he covers believing that by re-examining everything from art, mythology to social engineering that this can equip us with what he terms a 'consciousness firewall' in the face of pathological forces. His mantra of 'Feck Em If they Can't Take a Joke' has become a clarion call for others to never allow the dark forces of this world to wash over us, as well as to never take ourselves, or what we believe in too seriously.
Following his research into the psychopath, serial killers and the Psychopathic Control Grid, Sheridan turned his attention to exploring the topic on a deeper metaphysical and spiritual level after a life changing encounter with an African Shaman. What started out as a study of mythological archetypes and spirituality, soon became a fascination with the idea of human consciousness actually being under attack from a form of consciousness parasite.
Along with consulting literary and archival sources, field and lab work was also undertaken in an attempt to determine if any evidence to validate the vast and remarkably similar canon of folklore; proclaiming that humans are affected by non-material forms of consciousness that interact with us, often with horrific consequences for mankind.
Sheridan states that "All human mythological and spiritual prophecy is completely metaphorical and not a direct portrayal of literal events. The monsters, demons and scenes of cataclysmic folklore are not portrayals of earthly real world disasters, they are reflections of how the psycho-social battles actually take place; within the domain of human consciousness."
His current areas of work are the megalithic sites and mythology of Western Europe as both a narrative of past catastrophes upon the landscape, as well as these monuments serving as a petrified form of psycho analysis of the pre-Roman/Babylonian human mind and soul. To remind us all, that this present version of humanity is but a canvas that has been repainted over many, many times in the past, and that this process is still on going.
