I would have to say there must have been many karmic intricacies that led to my taking this course of action, which, among others, required the abandonment of all sorts of tempting professional ambitions and personal life pursuits. The very mentioning of the word karma which implies continuity of life before and past our current experiencing of the material and the existence of an otherwise fundamental spiritual aspect associated with the nature of being human is bound to raise though an eyebrow or two, if not draw ire and scorn. In fact, one of the motivations behind the writing of this book was that in churches, schools and universities our being here is described as the one and only chance we get at fulfilling practically nothing beside a futile accumulation of wealth. Life, the origin of which no one can actually explain, is a chance occurrence of no consequences for our spiritual being, according to materialist evolutionists, or the product of a miracle, according to biblical creationists.
In the end, in a few words, the two main objectives of this project, something gradually evolving from within a trove of evidence accumulated along the time through research and old-fashion paying attention to the meaning of everything surrounding us are to expose the fact that a large part of what humankind is told in schools and houses of worship is false, and also that there is more to life and reality than meets the eye.
That said when advancing an argument against or in favor of an issue of major significance for humankind one is expected to have credentials. At least this is how the large public is made to believe things should be. Only an expert could be trusted with his or her opinion, they say. The rest of us common people should just listen submissively and take notes. Many among those deemed by society to be experts in their specific field have been actually repeatedly proven wrong, yet most of the public does not know that.
There is nothing wrong with being wrong, as long as one admits to that in public as soon as he realizes he is wrong and society is allowed to take note of all pro and con arguments regarding a certain claim. That is not always the case, though, especially since making claims in public related to issues associated with what we know and what we believe we know is bound to have an impact on structures of society founded on what we allegedly know or on belief, such as religious institutions, academic organizations and political forms of government. The fact is, with the advent of Google and the Internet in general, every one of us could access these days everything our civilization has uncovered in the past or is discovering at this very moment, which is much more than what they teach in schools, universities and certainly infinitely much more than what they preach in churches. As a result everyone could become an expert in the field of his or her choice, be it religion, a specific theoretical physics concept, philosophy, history or in a certain branch of agriculture for that matter.
As Plato once said, "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when people are afraid of the light." All the destruction and the loss of life, the chaos, the waves of absurd and imposture coming from all directions we see these days around us is the result of the people of the planet being made afraid of the light by the powers that be. At the same time chaos is a sign of catharsis, the result of the clash between old and new, between those who want to maintain the status quo unchanged and the bringers of light.
We are all in this together. "United we stand, divided we fall." This is why global change will not occur without global participation. As controversial an issue this one too may be, global change is the only kind of change that will truly benefit civilization Earth, the only kind of change that will prevent actually civilization Earth from experiencing an early end. There is no alternative to that.
