“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 Earth-human followed by the creation of an existential environment that included institutions peddling all sorts of beliefs, authoritarian forms of government, and an economic system generating inequality and an artificial, non-merit-based stratification of the society. This was done by entities that at one time took control by force over an experiment originally intended as a way of bringing together human races from across the universe into a cognitive experience that was to benefit the cosmic brotherhood of man. To some this may sound like a fictional dystopian story. However, when one looks at the evidence, he becomes aware not just of the reality of the mental trap but also of its oppressing efficiency.

Hundreds of thousands of years later Earth people are living the dawns of a paradigm shift in the way they perceive reality, their potential, and the purpose of their being here. The avalanche of until now hidden facts triggered by this grand awakening reveals the depth of the deceit and will inevitably create confusion, social and economic instability and even chaos, something already visible all over the planet. To be able to adjust to this otherwise timely movement for spiritual and social emancipation, and to become consciously integrated within the transition, one will have to be prepared to either generate change or react appropriately to it.

A Time of Change is a book of knowledge providing significant support with that. In most instances, however, the reader will be introduced, possibly for the first time in the recent history of our Civilization, to knowledge or to an interpretation of what was known for a long time currently not provided in our schools and universities or in houses of worship for that matter. This is why A Time of Change is bound to be an initiator of catharsis, and without catharsis there could not be positive change.


“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


The amount of time dedicated to a project is to some extent irrelevant. What really matters in the end is if anything that is a real contribution to the greater good comes out of it. More than twelve years after work on the book started the project is in a relative state of completion. How and when it will be released, this is something yet to be decided.

It is very likely Volume 1 will be released first, with the other two following at the appropriate time. The author is very comfortable with making it available on his blog free of charge. He is also open to any uncompromising alternative.

To receive new posts enter your email address in the window provided and submit. For news check Announcements and Posts. Watch the videos under INFORMATIONAL. They are, indeed, informative, related to topics discussed in the book, and fun. To get acquainted with some of those topics you will have to read the Chapter Outline. There is an A Time of Change Facebook page that is highly recommended, a Paul Greene Facebook page and Paul Greene Twitter account. To contact the author direct use the following email address: paulgreene@atimeofchange.net.

The comment feature of the blog was disabled. I encourage those who understandably may feel the need to debate over the content of the book to do that at their school, university, or house of worship. Debates should be organized within your circle of friends or at your local book club. This way you will have an opportunity to reflect before commenting or reacting to other people’s comments, and, equally significant, to take full responsibility in person for your views and the way you have expressed them.

Last but not the least the author is not associated with any political organization, religious cult, secret society, social, spiritualist or new age movement, nor does he intend to establish something of that nature in the future. What the people of the planet choose to do with the information and the ideas shared in the book is entirely up to them. This is my gift to humankind.

WHY THE BOOK SHOULD BE FREE AND A FEW OTHER RELATED THOUGHTS


It is not because I am a millionaire. Honestly, I'm not. 

I did not invent the system and I don't approve of it. One way or the other you have to make money, though, otherwise a piece of paper with no actual value, or else no food, no shelter, and no retirement plan for you. Does it have to be this way? Yes, it does. At least  this is what the creators of the system want you to believe.

Next to religion and political forms of government, money is the most wicked invention ever in the history of Earth people. It was meant to trap everyone into dependence of the material and of the ones actually running the show behind elected officials. When you think about it, we could easily get rid of religion and political forms of government, if it was not for the monetary system. Indeed, big money is what allows political and all belief systems, not just religion, to keep a tight grip on humankind. 

Money generates enslavement to the system for the benefit of those in charge of civilization Earth. Wealth accumulation becomes political power. Political power and massive wealth accumulation translates in special privileges. Special privileges, massive wealth accumulation and political power trigger greed, and greed leads to inequality, social injustice, war and destruction. This is pretty much what we had on this planet for as long as we can remember.

Indeed, greed has become the out of control engine that will drive civilization Earth into the ground. Contrary to what you were  told in the 1980s, greed is not good for you. It makes you blind of your true mission in life, it disconnects you from cognitive growth and prevents you from reaching a higher state of consciousness awareness and of being. Last but certainly not the least it puts your personal desires above the needs of the community, above the greater good.  

The trap is tight and almost inescapable. The only way to break the chains is by experiencing awareness of the trap, and then the truth will set you free. 

When I started work on the book I was by default thinking, many copies sold means a house and a boat in Maine. To have it published, though, someone has to be interested in it based on that someone determining not if the book has wisdom value but if there is money to be made off of it. 

Given the lack of name recognition, the lack of credentials in the fields discussed and, equally significant that the way the topics discussed in the book is bound to upset 90% of all potential readers, including the main profiteers of the system, it was fair and safe to assume literary agents would not exactly rush to get involved. This is too heavily standing on the side of political incorrectness, and university presses are not exactly fond of outsiders with no degrees in the prevailing theory either. So I decided one my first options would be to go underground, which makes lots of sense under the circumstances but may not help with distribution, or with the house in Maine for that reason. 

The system is set to protect the status quo, especially since the status quo is the system. When one challenges the status quo on solid grounds, the system does not allow him to come even close to the money tree. In a world where food, shelter and gas costs money, though, that tends to make one's life if not miserable at least rather difficult. 

The system is also meant to break you psychologically when you do not comply and it forces you to play according to the rules established by those who control it. "The dude abides," goes a famous line in a famous movie, and yet choosing submissiveness out of primeval convenience is not exactly something a human being should be proud of or aim for in life.

I am definitely not good at abiding, and I do not do that on purpose. It is just the way I am, the way was build. I am a man of principles who values and acknowledges rational logic wherever he can find it, which does not make you life a lot easier in today's world. When forced to choose from one or a number of irrational options, you could bet your mansion in the Hamptons this dude does not abide, so I decided offering the book free of charge in a format most everyone with a computer or a similar device could access it was may first option. 

Abiding by rules established on a rational logic interpretation of the natural law in general is a prerequisite for becoming an advanced civilization. We are not there yet though. Our current state of mind is in blind compliance with an induced false perception of reality, which, by the way, it is in the process of being shattered these days, and A Time of Change will definitely help with that.. 

Among others, there is a change in attitude regarding the idea of how society should function, toward the notion of equality and social fairness. People are thinking more now in terms of free education, free healthcare making absolute sense, and as a result a free book is no longer such a crazy idea. On the other hand, that is a pretty crazy idea for anyone who cannot see beyond the illusion of reality created around us and who thinks we are here solely to make monetary gains and nothing else. 

The powers that be have certainly taken note of this change of attitude. Considering the current chaotic political and generally speaking social circumstances, with false being true, true being false and hating the other guys just because you don't like them being a-okay, when a book project is seen as potentially having the capacity of dislodging the current perception of reality and this way status quo and to put the basis for a new humanity, this free book is bound to raise a few deep state eyebrows. 

Not being vetted by a serious publishing house and not being edited by an industry overseer makes it possible this book will not fit the official narrative. Truth be spoken, sure thing, A Time of Change is not meant to appease or reinforce existing beliefs and narratives. It is meant to to do the opposite of that, to reveal what for the greater good it needs to be revealed, and, once again, the truth will set us free.

One way or the other, free of for a price, this is my gift to humankind.
