“The Ultimate Tyranny in a society is not control by martial law. It is control by the psychological manipulation of consciousness, through which reality is defined so that those who exist within it do not even realize that they are in prison. They do not even realize that there is something outside of where they exist.” – Bringers of the Dawn


There seems to be something very wrong with our world, something that goes beyond what we see and hear during scripted TV news programs and narrative framing opinion shows. To fix that, we must figure out how we ended up here.


Thousands of years ago the inhabitants of the planet became prisoners of an illusion. It all began with the genetic downgrading of the new Earth-human followed by the creation of an existential system that included institutions peddling belief as fact, authoritarian forms of government, and a very restrictive monetary system generating inequality and an artificial, non-merit-based stratification of the society. This was done by entities that at one time took over what it was and still is a human experiment. To some this may sound like a fictional dystopian story. When one looks at the evidence, though, he becomes aware not just of the reality of the mental trap but also of its oppressing efficiency.

Earth people are living the dawns of a paradigm shift in the way they perceive reality and the purpose of their being here. The avalanche of revelations triggered by this grand awakening is bound to create confusion, instability, and even chaos, something already visible all over the planet. To be able to adjust to this timely natural movement for spiritual, social, and cognitive emancipation, and to become consciously integrated within the transition, one will have to be prepared to react to the need for rational change and to change itself. A Time of Change provides solid support with that. It is also an unparalleled initiator of catharsis.


“There has been an over involvement in the material world and a complete lack of understanding of the nonphysical world that exists all around you, so there will be a reprioritizing of what comes first in life. People will stand up, once they have lost everything, who had never thought of standing up when they owned everything. People will awaken to the incredible potential of themselves.” – Message channeled by Barbara Marciniak


After twelve and a half years the project is in a state of completion. How and when this last version of the book will be released is something to be decided.

AN INTROSPECTIVE GLIMPSE INTO THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THE PROJECT


Much of what I have experienced in life was associated from a relative early age with a keen interest in knowing and understanding the makings of the universe and our place in it. The things I was able to uncover along the way, my report with the world while observing the details that make the world would cumulate along the time into the cognitive and the motivational basis for this project. 

Part of why I took on such an ample project was the realization that the world we lived in was marred by irrational, absurd, deceit, by our obsession with material gains and the constant acts of violence that made existence a living nightmare. I knew it did not have to be that way, so I embarked on a journey to finding the answer to the daunting question of why is the world we live in the way it is.  

There were many karmic intricacies associated with taking this course of action. Among others, its completion required the abandonment of my original professional ambitions and other personal life pursuits. This would happen over time, apparently as a way of putting myself, unconsciously at that time, in a state that would allow me to become fully dedicated to the project. 

Something deriving from the fundamental spiritual aspect of being human, the notion of karma implies continuity of the pursuit of our spirit's goal over the course of many lives. Looking constantly back to my entire life beginning with as early as I could remember,  at one point I developed a clear sense that this was, indeed, my mission, at least in this life cycle. No matter what happens from now on, I am firmly convinced, and I do not say this lightly, this is the case.  

The main objective of this project, something developed years into working on it, is to raise awareness of the fact that the most significant part of what Earth people are told in schools, in the media and houses of worship is false. The other main goal was to reveal the truth hidden from the people, a truth that I would uncover while researching for the project.  

To begin with, there is more to life and reality than meets the eye, and this realization is bound to change our understanding of the purpose of life, of the reason why we, the eternal spirit energy within an ephemeral body are experiencing the material. That change in the perception of what we are and why we are here is going to inevitably change for the better the way we exist on this planet.

Considering that A Time of Change takes on a vast collection of controversial topics with deep social implications, including but not limited to religion, evolution, the history of our civilization, consciousness, philosophy, spirituality, biology, genetics, geology, astronomy, astrology, extraterrestrial life, the origin of life and the universe, the reader would be rightfully inclined to ask about my credentials, about how many other books I wrote and how many peer reviewed papers I published. As revealed in the book, not every book or paper peer reviewed is factual or rational, not everything stated by a scientist is true, and manipulating the public's perception of reality is what many of the so-called experts  are very good at. 

In the age of the Internet one willing individual could access more information than any tuition paying student was exposed to in order to get his degree in a certain field of knowledge. Not only that, another thing revealed in the book, there are many instances when the information he had to memorize in order to obtain his degree turns out to be outdated when not outright false.

The label “expert” gratuitously attached to one's name creates the illusion of credibility. To address that, all it takes these days is a computer with a keyboard and an ability to ask pertinent questions. 

There are truly knowledgeable, intelligent, honest, well educated men and women out there in all sorts of fields of human interest, and then there are the on-call experts whose mission is to control the conversation, the way public understands things and this way the way the public acts and reacts. Last but not the least a degree in a certain domain is not a guarantee that the person takes guidance from a rational moral compass. 

As for religion, this was something exposed for hundreds of year for being an instrument of mass control. The reason why the education system makes no effort to protect the new generation against indoctrination with irrational religious belief is that those using religion to control the masses are the ones who also control what we teach in schools, colleges, and universities.  

To the ordinary human’s great advantage, the knowledge, the data, the information is out there, a few key strokes away from the dedicated truth seeker. Once again, though, it is never about how much one knows but about how accurate is his understanding of what he knows. 

We are all born truth seekers. By the very nature of being human we are all born scientists. Without a doubt, all evidence points to the fact that this is a time of change, and, in the end, the truth will set us free. It is though our duty to look for the liberating truth and then share it with the others.

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." We are in this together, and global change will not occur without global awareness and global participation.
