“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, and that perception is based on more than just watching the evening news. To fix it, 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-humans 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, a non-merit-based stratification of the society. All that was done by those who at one time took over what was and it still is a human experiment. To some this may sound like a fictional dystopian story. That is until one looks at the evidence and becomes aware not just of the mental trap but also of its oppressing efficiency.

Through all kinds of religious institutions, by the way of dictatorial forms of government using democracy as a method of mass manipulation, through media outlets, the education system and the academia, Earth people are fed false information while knowledge that would change the way they exist on the planet is deliberately kept hidden from them.

We were once warned America is the most controlled society on the planet, and this has become more evident today than ever. We were also told, as America goes, so goes the world, and in a more or less well-coordinated effort, the rest of the global community is following suit. When somebody exposes abuses or the abusers, the guardians of the status quo cry “Conspiracy theory!”

Last but not the least we were once told the truth will set us free. No one has ever explained to the people of the planet what truth was that and what was it supposed to free one from. This is about to change. To those who will read the book, A Time of Change will open many doors to many layers of liberating truth, and the world will never look the same to them.

We are living the dawns of a paradigm shift in the way we perceive reality and the purpose of our being here. The avalanche of revelations triggered by this grand awakening is bound to create confusion, instability, and even chaos, something already visible all around us. To adjust to this timely natural movement toward spiritual emancipation and to become integrated in the transition, one will have to be prepared to react to the need for rational change and to change itself. A Time of Change is going to provide significant help with that. In the end, though, everything that happens to us, or it does not happen, is a choice we make.

AN INTROSPECTIVE GLIMPSE INTO THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THIS PROJECT


Much of what I have experienced in life was consciously associated from a relative early age with a keen interest in knowing and in understanding the universe and everything in it. The things I was able to learn along the way, my report with the world while observing many of the details that make the world what actually is and not what we perceive the world as being would cumulate along the time into 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, our tendency to deceive, our obsession with material goals, selfishness and the constant acts of violence that made it into a living nightmare. I knew it did not have to be that way, and the book was to be about finding the answer to the inevitable question of why is the world we live in the way it is.  

I would have to say there were many karmic intricacies associated with taking this course of action. Among others, its completion required the abandonment of all sorts of tempting professional ambitions and personal life pursuits. The notion of karma implies continuity of the pursuit of the soul's goal in the current experiencing of the material, something deriving from the fundamental spiritual aspect of the nature of being human. 

The mere mentioning of the word karma is bound to raise an eyebrow or two, if not draw ire and scorn from the ones that for one reason or another remain unaware of this reality. 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 at life. Not only that but according to both religion and scientific materialism there is no real purpose to life. As a result, most Earth people are convinced the only thing we are here to accomplish is practically nothing other than a futile accumulation a vast material riches.  

In the end, the main objective of this project is to raise awareness of the fact that when one pays attention to the meaning of everything surrounding us we realize that a large part of what Earth people are told in schools and houses of worship is false. To begin with, there is more to life and reality than meets the eye, and this realization is bound to improve our understanding of the purpose of life, of the reason why we, the eternal spirit energy within the ephemeral body are experiencing the material. That change in the perception of what we are and why we are here will inevitably change the way we exist on this planet, and the change could only be for the better.

That said when advancing an argument against or in favor of an issue of major significance for humankind one is expected to have some kind of credentials. Only an expert could be trusted with his or her opinion in matters of religion, evolution, theoretical physics or astronomy, they say. The rest of us common people should just listen submissively and take notes. In reality, many among those deemed by society to be experts in their specific field have been repeatedly proven wrong, yet many among the public do not know that and they are ready to believe everything someone with a degree or the acronym Ph.D attached to their name tells them is verified fact. 

There is nothing wrong with being wrong, as long as one admits to that as soon as he realizes he is wrong. As matter of principle, society should be allowed to compare all pro and con arguments regarding a certain claim made by one of those experts. That is not always the case, though, especially since certain claims have a direct impact on how society functions and it is structured. So seek the truth but be weary of anyone who declares in a public forum he has found it. While truth is universal, it appears reality is made actually of many layers of interrelated truths.

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 about religion in their case. As a result everyone could be an expert in the field of his or her choice, be it religion, a certain theoretical physics concept, philosophy, history or in a specific branch of agriculture if he or she so decides. 

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, among others, 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. To begin with quantity is not a guarantee of quality. Otherwise, as revealed in the book, not everything peer reviewed is factual or rational, and for reasons that have to do with politics and manipulating the public's perception of reality many of the so-called experts are out there to promote what is proven falsehood.

It is very easy to affix the label “expert” to one's name in order to create the illusion of credibility. All it takes is a computer with a keyboard and an affiliation with a media outlet.
There are truly knowledgeable, intelligent, honest, well educated men and women out there in all sorts of fields of human interest, and there are the on-call experts introduced as such to the public by those who seek to control the terms of the conversation, and this way the way the public acts and reacts. 

The pretend experts, the TV experts are usually extremely vocal and highly visible when compared to the attention the real expert gets in the media. Constantly pushed in front by the managers of knowledge, by those who control the distribution of information, they are the most popular with the masses. They have hundreds of videos placed on YouTube titled by their street teams in ways that reek of bias and target the young and unsuspecting, they get to publish dozens of otherwise irrelevant books and many of them are multi-millionaires, which makes them even more dedicated to their act of spreading falsehood in order to maintain the status quo. 

As you are going to see in the book, this is a serious problem for our civilization, and it will continue to impede on our personal cognitive development and the wellbeing of the global community as long as we allow this to happen by limiting our participation to the conversation to taking them submissively at their word and to proudly reproducing their claims from memory without checking the facts.

A degree in a certain domain is not a guarantee that what the person has received in college while working at obtaining it is valid information or that the interpretation of that information as described by him from his now expert position is a scientific axiom, something that is simultaneously rational and logical. 

At the same time religion is nothing but blind belief and it goes without saying that what they preach in houses of worship has nothing to do with known truth or reason since nothing in their dogma is based on a rational interpretation of actual facts. In reality, as it will be demonstrated abundantly in the book what they preach in churches and megachurches is the opposite of the known truth. It is a deliberate distortion or misrepresentation of known truth, and distorting significant known truth was the main purpose behind the establishment of the institution of religion on this planet. 

To a today's ordinary human’s great advantage the knowledge, the data is out there, a few taps away on your keyboard from you being able to find it and analyze it. That said 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 humans we are all born scientists. The system, however, was set to prepare most Earth people to get a job slaving for the very rich and powerful, in factories, mines and in the field, and not for looking for real answers to question related to the mysteries of the universe. The kind of education they receive in schools is meant to trap them into dependence of the material by focusing for the rest of their life on making a living, on making ends meet within a system where according to a 2015 report called An Economy for the 1% sixty-two very rich people in the world "own as much as the poorest half of the entire humankind combined." 

This is a time of change, and the truth will set us free. We are experiencing the beginning of an era that will generate a paradigm shift in the way we understand reality, what we are and the purpose of our being here. This is going to generate significant change in the way we exist on this planet at the social, economical and spiritual level, a change that will have to have a global reach. 

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." From immemorial times light was a symbol for knowledge. As a result, the wanton destruction of nature and the orchestrated loss of human life, the absurd that governs human behavior and the imposture taking over positions of leadership within society is a state caused by those who are afraid of the light, of knowledge, those who are still in control of civilization Earth. 

We are in this together, and global change will not occur without global awareness and global participation. Global change is actually the only kind of change that will benefit the Earth people by, among others, preventing civilization Earth from experiencing a premature end. 

We live in a time of change and lots of what we see happening on the planet has the appearance of chaos. Chaos, however, is a sign of catharsis, the result of the clash between old and new, false and true, between those who want to maintain the status quo and the bringers of light. We could not just sit around though and expect that light will eventually triumph. We must make sure it will, and A Time of Change is my contribution to the effort.
