In the movie Wander Boys, a character named Q emphatically proclaims in front of an amphitheater filled to the rim with students and faculty that, "I am a writer!" The audience erupts in applause for he is a successful writer with a house in the Hamptons and a new book coming out every eighteen months.
People tend to see proof of success in the number of books one has published, in the fact that he or she is a millionaire and lives in one of those neighborhoods only the rich and famous could afford. Most of the truly great writers, however, are not remembered for writing twelve books or for being the owners of a 6-bedroom 6-bathroom mansion with a heated swimming pool in the backyard. They are remembered and honored by the world for writing that one book that left an indelible mark on the humankind's consciousness.
All I did was to make a written record of my self-questioning and of the answers I came up with so that others too may self-question themselves in order to find their own answers. Why would be such a thing necessary for us as a civilization? Because we exist the way we understand reality, because we have been deliberately trapped into a false perception of reality, and because the truth will set us free.
