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.
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.
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.
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.
