After 15 years of intense research work and non-complying analysis of unique findings, A Time of Change, Volume 1 is offered free of charge to anyone who may come across it on the World Wide Web. This is not the end of the road. This is the completion of a significant stage of a much longer journey of discovery all humans are entitled to participate in.
In a world in which the distribution of information is under a stricter control these days than it has ever been on order to limit access to certain liberating truth, and where the meaning of what the people know is often deliberately misrepresented by the designated expert, for the time being this is an underground book.
THE AUTHOR'S JOURNEY.
It looks like the premises for the writing of the book have been established from the beginning of my life. They were later solidified through almost everything I have experienced along the way until the moment when work on the project started and even after that. I have only reached this conclusion in recent times, and it is based on accumulated evidence, facts no one else other than me is aware of.
Among others, there has been a recognizable pattern in terms of my relation to the members of the family I was born into, with the family I would seek to build through marriage, and in my relation to those outside family I would occasionally come in contact with. My life, so far, has been anything I had planned it to be. I have to say, though, it looks like it has been everything it was supposed to be.
Unbeknownst to them, parents completely uninterested in the fate of their one and only offspring put me in situations that turned out to be generators of a predetermined learning process. At the same time their lack of involvement in my upbringing gave me the liberty of exploring the world at will, and for that I must thank them.
We choose our parents and through them our entire circle of family and friends before we are born. This choice of existential circumstances is determined by the mission we come here to accomplish. In this instance, the dysfunctionality of my family benefited my mission by allowing the spirit to focus undisturbed during the formative years on things that later would be of great significance for the book project.
I used lack of supervision to wander more or less aimlessly the forests and the mountains surrounding a small village in the old country where my father ran every year a private acting summer school. This way I was able to get an intimate look at everything nature. I would also forge a deep attachment to the people of that remote place. From them I learned about the beauty and the value of honesty, common sense, and kindness.
Observing nature in all its splendor and mystery enticed me to ask from an early age my self all kinds of questions about the origin of trees, flowers, rivers, rocks, butterflies and birds. I would also ponder over the origin and nature of the wonder of all wonders, the human being.
In high school, I turned my attention to the sky. From that came the realization that we were living on a speck of dust within the immensity of an apparently infinite cosmic world, and the inevitable question was, why were we here? Not only that but, what was the purpose of being here? Fascinated by the magnificence of that awesome cosmic display of distant lights and by the natural wonders of our planetary world, I could not understand the division, the absurd, the hatefulness and the destruction we were treating the Earth and our fellow human to most of the time. Where did all that darkness come from among so much beauty on a planet of plenty?
A miracle planet, indeed, I nevertheless felt that nothing in the story told in church about the creation of the world and humans could be taken for a real answer. The same was true of the explanation offered in biology class for the origin of species. In a society where religious belief was always invoked even when officially banned by the government, more so since our house was standing between two churches like many others I would from an early age look for god. All I could find, though, was empty celestial spaces impossible to connect to spiritually while to me Darwinian evolutionism did not make any sense either.
UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES DURING TROUBLED TIMES.
The country was under the rule of one of the most dictatorial regimes in Eastern Europe. By the time I was out of the conservatory society basically collapsed, both economically and morally, with almost all rational existential rules being abolished. Living on principle and because of that unwilling and basically unable to comply with the terms of that demise of order and reason, I abandoned the career I had dreamed about and prepared for. I decided instead to dedicate my life to communicating to people through books, and to that end I was to retreat to the little village in the mountains I used to call home.
Before I could do that, I needed to travel for a while, to experience the so-called free world. In a calculated move, as it turned out this would considerably reduce the waiting time for the required exist visa, I let representatives of the regime know I was going to return. Thousands and thousands or people were desperately seeking at the time to escape what rightfully so felt like a prison. This was what with all my heart I wanted to do, and this was what I did in the end.
I had that deep spiritual connection with my mountains, with the Danube Delta, with the mountain people and the fishermen I grew up with, my true friends and my only family. The mountains, the muddy waters of the Danube River, they were in my blood and I could not abandon them.
Then there was something I had become aware of after watching the country being slowing affected by what in the west would be known as "the national brain hemorrhage." It was the painful depleting of our society of the most intelligent, cultivated, and the most talented among its sons and daughters, a significant part of what was causing society to collapse. They would emigrate to a saner and more rational world, they hoped, where you could live life at your full potential, except that for various reasons many of them would not be able to find what they were looking for on the other side of the wall. As a result of living the country without the approval of the government, for many of them the option of returning home was completely unappealing, and for the rest of their lives they would be stuck in a no man's land they felt they did not belong to.
It was common sense that if everyone who had the vision of how things should have been and of what kind of changes were needed to happen in order to make the country a better place to live was turning his or her back at the country for good, nobody capable of changing things for the better would have been left there, and that vision would have never come true. In other words, living behind a terrible situation in one part of the world is not the solution to its problems, nor does that make the rest of the world better. In fact, that could create havoc and instability all over the planet.
As difficult as was to imagine that, when I returned, I found everything in an even worse shape than it was when I left. As expected, a representative of the government showed up at my door and asked me to write a propaganda article about imperialist America. I refused and I was blacklisted. During a second meeting, I was informed I could not publish or get a job in the capital in the field I was trained in.
By the end of 1989, similar to what had happened in all the other Eastern European countries, the leader of the dictatorial regime in Romania was ousted during what at the time was described as being a popular revolt. Unlike what happened in most Eastern Europe, where the regime change was the result of what the media in the west would describe as being a "velvet revolution," this one was a bloody confrontation. There were innocent people lying dead in the streets while others were fighting and falling on the barricades. I have witnessed much of it at close range, I met with people one way or the other associated with the events, and I personally knew many of those who were at the front of it or were rather used as front men. In the end, this turned out to be a confrontation between dark forces vying for power in the post-dictatorial regime era.
Within days, a few of us realized the staged popular revolt was a front for what in reality was a coup d'etat. It had been organized by members of the old regime waiting in line for their turn to power. To draw attention to that, I wrote a number of articles for some of the emerging independent publications. A few weeks later, I was offered a full-time position with a newspaper distributed all over the country that had been operating for decades and appeared to have been on the side of truth and reason, as in opposition with those who were preparing to take power.
With the old regime basically gone, for many this was so only in appearance, people in the streets were demanding that its members and high-ranked Secret Police officers were not allowed to be part of the new government. The coup organizers promised they will not run for office. Then they broke that promise and the country plunged into chaos.
I was covering the events spending many hours in the streets observing in real time what was going on, with many of the old media organizations, TV stations included, being under the interim leaders' control and distorting the reality of the events, and I would end up receiving death threats. The old regime people ended up winning the elections, under dubious circumstances one may add, and once the power grab was completed, there was gruesome violence in the streets directed at the protesters, at the opposition, and at the critics of the new regime. The year was 1990.
The headquarters of my paper were ransacked. Under pressure, and with the old guard of the editorial staff regaining control after the elections, leadership would refuse now to print my political commentary. Considering that a large part of the population kept in the dark for decades under the old regime, at the same time manipulated now by a Romanian Orthodox Church that had collaborated in the past with the Secret Police and will significantly profit financially from the regime change was radically supportive of the coup organizers and their political party, there was no fight to fight there anymore, nor who to fight for. In my position, even though I was offered to take over as editor in chief at to be established publications, I had no other rational choice but leave the country, again. Under those circumstances, plus the duty of taking my two sons to safety, this time around I departed the old country with no emotional attachments left intact and I have not been there since.
After I left Romania in the fall of 1990, its new government became one of the most corrupt governments not just in Eastern Europe, but in the world, with the party that won the first and highly manipulated elections after the coup d'etat of 1989 winning every single "free" election held for the last thirty years. All this time they had the church on their side, a church that in only a couple of decades went from basically zero to a net worth of five billion dollars. Through the church the new ruling party was getting the votes of 80% of the population, and when those numbers dropped, according to international observers they would rig election results.
Possibly a unique case in the history of immigration, I was granted twice political asylum in America. The irony of it, in both instances the decision to leave my country was the result of being opposed to the totalitarianism of two different oppressive regimes that because of specific geo-political circumstances were backed by Washington.
The second time around things would get, though, completely out of hand. As the first Gulf War was about to start, the American government needed Romania's refining capacities to make gas for its jets. That could not have happened as long as Romania was listed as a dictatorship. To be able to get what America needed, the Department of State changed the country report on Romania from a return to dictatorship to, there are some minor problems there, a few journalists were aggressed, otherwise all's well. They made the changes as I was flying from Bucharest to JFK in NewYork. As a result, the process of granting political asylum took an unexpected turn of events, and I would not be able to see my children for nine years.
A TIME OF CHANGE: A DESTINED PROJECT.
A Time of Change is not the product of an idea that has occurred to me in the spur of the moment. I was not aware of that at the time but, as it turned out, when unplanned work on the book began, it had been a developing project for decades now.
During the year and a half I had to wait for the exit visa required in Romania under the old rules of the old regime before I was allowed to leave the country the first time around, and during those very long nine years it took for my request for political asylum to be properly addressed in accordance to the existing immigration laws after the second coming to America, with a couple of US Presidents, local political personalities, major media organizations, and a former American Ambassador to Romania being one way or the other involved in the affair, I would experience a number of unusual life happenings. Too many not to see a trend there, for many years I did not know what to make of it. Later on, they would become a significant part of what has in the end generated a new perspective on the nature of reality, on the origin of the world, and on the destiny of our civilization. This new perspective on the world would then become the basis for a book project titled The Day Belief Becomes History, that then became A Time of Change.
There was, however, something specific that led to taking on this challenging project. On a self-imposed hiatus after writing for years for newspapers serving the Romanian community in America, Canada, and Israel on such topics as social and political events, ancient and modern history, art, religion, and science, one day I happened to run into an article in a college newspaper that caught my attention. It was a politically correct reaction to the decision issued at the end of the December 2005 trial in Dover, Pennsylvania. Also known as the Dover Panda Trial, it resulted in an official ban on discussing intelligent design in public schools on account of being religion.
According to the author of the article, since religion was all belief and no fact, and since evolution was labeled science, the theory of evolution was science fact. This was the precise impression the decision in the Dover trial was intended to make on the public, the implication being that, since Darwinian gradualism was a theory proposed and endorsed by scientists, it was by far a lot more reliable than an explanation for the origin of life forms on this planet based on irrational religious belief.
As a matter of principle, this would have been correct. Not everything logic is true, though, and, in reality, things were much different from how the author of the article perceived them to be. As far as I was concerned, I was convinced by now neither religion, nor evolutionary theory were offering a rational logical explanation for the origin of life and for the purpose of our being here. This conclusion was founded at the time mostly on a common sense first glance at facts easily observable in nature and all around us. All in all, I found that a new perspective on the creation vs. evolution public debate was a good subject for an interesting article, one I was going to write.
Before I knew it, the one I wrote was an 18-page long article. A lot more than just an article, and even more than what it is expected of an essay: 10-12 pages. This was actually the book project I had been looking for. As work on the book was advancing, though, the project was taking what was not a pre-established direction, and I came to realize a number of things. As a result, I had to stop for a brief moment to figure out not just where I was going with it, but also what where the consequences of going where research results were leading to by now.
Yes, religion was all belief, but the truly interesting, as well as the very controversial result of analyzing institutionalized religion was the realization of the fact that religious dogma was used to hide from the people of the planet something of great significance to them and to our civilization as a whole. The other thing was, not every scientist out there was a genius or had produced something relevant research-wise. As a result, not everything stated by every scientist was science fact or word of wisdom. Science was always right. Scientists, not much so.
That said for a rational mind it was difficult to see how scientists with a college education could not realize that gradual evolution over millions of years was biologically and genetically impossible. A consequence of that, it looked like similar to what we had when it came to religion, academic support for the theory of evolution was a cover for the fact that same as in the case of the religious dogma on creation, the story told by Darwin at the insistence of some of his otherwise completely insincere supporters had no relation to reality, and that, most importantly, both creationism and evolutionism were used to distract the public's attention from a certain truth regarding the origin of humans on this planet.
Almost two years into the project, it became clear that this was going to be a lot more explosive than anticipated. I was so fascinated, at times appalled by what I was uncovering, and I continued without hesitation on the path taken, the motivational mantra being, let the facts take us wherever they may. I did not foresee at the time that I would be reaching interconnected destinations that were way past the initial topic of interest.
Work on the project started the end of March, beginning of April 2006, and by 2007, I had now a 400-page book. I also had this constant feeling that there was a lot more to it. I wanted to be able to work 12 hours a day, 24/7, the universe picked my wish, and a consequence of the global economic crisis of 2007-2008, in October of 2007 I lost my job and with that my personal source of income.
I envisioned the book being finished in no more than a year. I also had intimate hopes a bold publisher was going to step in and that this is going to solve all personal problems. Non-related to the project personal life, however, seemed to be of no relevance to the universe, and neither one of the desired outcomes happened.
The first final version of the book was completed six years later. Realizing now this was too controversial for a more and more politically correct publishing industry, in 2013 I rushed to release it as an e-book. I took it down within days so I could make a few minor adjustments. I republished it, and then I took it down again. I would work on the book for a couple of more years, and I am not talking just proofing for spelling errors and editing for style. There was more research work done leading to significant new findings, additions, excised text, more in detail analysis, and all that resulted in significant manuscript changes. The project would gradually expand to the point where it was now 1,400 pages and 120 images long. So, I divided it into three well-balanced content wise volumes.
The obvious advantage of being taken under the wings of one the Big Fives of the publishing industry or of one of their imprints is that your book gets more visibility. However, while in an open, politically unattached society getting as much book-title exposure as possible is what an author wants to achieve, after all this is how commerce in general works, even though I am not completely closed to it I was no longer sure in today’s world pronounced exposure was a good thing for this particular project. In fact, I was feeling a lot more comfortable with the idea of offering it free of charge on the Internet and of letting content seep quietly into human consciousness. I was also getting a clear message from dozens of literary agents I would contact every moth for a while, their standard response being, "Sorry, this book is not for me."
I could have not agreed with them more. That and the need to avoid more e-book publishing fees every time I would make changes in the manuscript led to the decision to have links to a pdf format of all three volumes posted on my website.
The most vicious, completely dishonest attacks came from evolutionists. They happened on one of my YouTube channels no longer in use these days. One of them claimed, on a website/blog he created just for this one article, that he debunked my entire book because, he was stating there, he determined that I had presented no evidence against evolution. Not only is the book about many other things aside from evolution it also contains actually dozens of pages of evidence against the claims made by Darwin and today's Darwinists, new evidence included, with hundreds of pages where the evidence is analyzed in detail many a time coming from different directions. It also contains dozens of pages where major claims made in religion are analyzed and debunked. As a result, the implication of his proclamation was that he also debunked criticism of religion, something he otherwise appeared to be in agreement with.
This kind of reaction was to be expected. What came as a surprise was the lack of civility, the infantile irrationality of the attacks, something suggesting lack of confidence, if not desperation, something I ended up discussing in the book. As for how religious people responded to it, in houses of worship they are told they must close their ear and mind to fact and reason, to everything someone exposing the lack of any basis for their beliefs has to say.
As envisioned, the pdf format allowed for occasional improvements, which would happen actually a lot more than just occasional. As a result, despite my conviction every time a new version of the book replaced the old one that this was to be the last, the final-final one, by the end of 2019 I decided to remove the links to the book from the website.
In the end, between 2013, the year when I first thought work on the project was done and April of 2021, the book went through some 20 "final" versions, at a rate of about two and a half a year. As far as I am concerned, not yet proofed or edited by someone other than me with English being technically considered my second language, content wise this one should be the real one and only final version of A Time of Change, Volume 1. In an advanced stage, Volume 2 and Volume 3 are a work in progress and they will be released one by one within the next 12 months.
As a word of writer's wisdom goes, you do not finish a book. You abandon it. I hereby gladly declare A Time of Change, Volume 1 abandoned. Again, though, this is not the end of the journey. This is the beginning of its next stage.
MOTIVATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
Someone once asked, what are you trying to accomplish with this book? In other words, he wanted to know what my agenda was. The mystery agenda associated with the project is revealed these days in the opening two sentences of Chapter 1: "The universe operates at the frequency of honesty and truth. Earth-humans live according to a false perception of reality."
The reader will find in it a detailed description of this falsification, and also an explanation for who is behind it and why Earth people have been trapped in it from their most recent beginnings of their civilization a few hundred thousand years ago. Then he or she will be taken beyond the multiple layers of this manufactured illusion of reality, not a figure of speech, something the people of the planet are made to perceived as real reality. As a result, and in some instances possibly for the first time in the recent history of humankind, he or she will be exposed to significant elements of that until now hidden liberating truth.
That said, let anyone who may be tempted to attach labels to the book and to its author in order to claim alleged evil motivations be advised that I am not affiliated with any political organization, religious cult, secret society, social, spiritualist, or new age movement. I also do not intend to establish anything like that nature in the future. What the people of the planet decide to do with what they will find in the book is entirely up to them. After all, their journey of discovery did not begin and will not end with this book.
There are entities out there opposing the making public of any part of the liberating truth. Many of them happen to be profiting from the status quo, which explains their reluctance to allow contact with any fact of real reality that could cause the status quo to change. There are also those that fear that by allowing Earth people access to the true story of their origin all belief systems of a religious or pseudoscientific nature will collapse, something that would generate uncontrollable chaos on the planet. We have been living a lie for too long now. Conflict with universal natural law has resulted in us being in constant conflict with our fellow humans and with Mother Nature. That, and not the liberating truth is the actual reason why chaos has been something humans on this planet have experienced for thousands of years now.
Without a doubt, we are entering a cosmic age of planetary, genetic, because of that biological and consciousness awareness changes one must view for what they are: programmed upgrades. We should consciously take advantage of it, or else the universe will force us to change our ways.
To build something new within a finite social and planetary space we must abandon and then demolishing old structures. Our time on this planet as a civilization and the life of the planet itself is limited. To be able to move to other locations within this and other universes before we exhaust our natural resources, we must significantly improve our perception of reality, more so in these times of change. This will inevitably entice many to abandon the old mentality, something that will rational logically lead to a positive change in the way we exist as a civilization. Indeed, within the next two centuries or so we are to experience quantum leap civilization advancement, and this is going to result in both temporary chaos and global enlightenment.
Part of the reasonings behind someone's questioning my approach to handling this project was, why offer the book for free when everyone is in the business of selling things for a profit. There are a number of aspects regarding this issue I would like to address.
I had a cold relation with money for most of my life. Definitely a way of establishing security and comfort according to the current existential system we live by, in I was never obsessed with the idea of making lots of money. Instead, I would find reward in being able to figure out the best way of fulfilling my assigned tasks. In that respect I always knew my market value according to the rules of the game.
For the record, I do not hate rich people. They are products of the same system that generates poor people by the millions. The problem for our civilization is not the politician but the real purpose of the political system of government. Similar to that, rich people are not the villain unless as human beings they make choices that turn them into one. Our problems when it comes to money and to haves and the have nots derive from an economic/existential system that will always produce a few super rich individuals in control of the resources of the planet and billions of constantly struggling humans that make the labor force.
In line with this personal unenthusiastic relation to the monetary system, I am a firm supporter of the notion that knowledge should be free. In line with that the future of our civilization depends on what we teach the current generation in schools and universities, and by that is meant not just those who can afford today the high cost of college education but also those who become trapped into debt for decades after graduation. That means society must devise a system that allows everyone full access to all available information through free education. The wellbeing of our global community depends on that.
Then there is the fact that a printed edition of such a large book would be financially prohibitive for many of the people of the planet, especially for the younger generation. Offering it in an electronic format is also environmentally friendly.
Speaking of the cost of printing in a world where most everything is about making a profit, preaching religious belief and biological gradualism as fact included, with millionaires on both sides, if this project would be handled by a traditional publisher, it is very likely that in order to reduce production costs they would make significant cuts in the manuscript. I have already done that extensively on my own motivated by the idea of having the best text quality and analytical clarity possible considering my circumstances. And while some of those cuts would be explained as being necessary for economic reasons, based on my past observations and personal experiences, there is a very good chance in many instances the editorial job would be subordinated to someone's political agenda.
I would love to know that people are reading the book, but since I do not sell copies here, it is going to be close to impossible to keep track of that. My ambition though is not to become a famous published author, part of the reason why I am using a pen name, and I do not intend to change the world all by myself either. The purpose of what I have been doing for a long time now, of putting a significant part of my life in the service of this project is to entice all of us to use knowledge and a rational understanding of what we know to improve our perception of reality, and then the world we live in will reflect that.
The only sign the book has made a certain impact will be a significant change in the way the people understand the purpose of their being here and in the way our leaders and the entities behind our leaders treat them. Proof the book has reached and touched its global audience is going to be a change in the current narrative. Though one could never be sure about the speed and the depths of progress, this will most likely be noticeable beginning with the next generation.
A matter of principle, I do not have expectations and I know that most likely I will not enjoy the shade provided by the trees I have planted in the past or here today. There is good reason though to envision a planetary world where once the people become aware of the liberating truth, there will be no wars, destruction, no poverty, and no division. I vividly sense that, a result of that, humankind will be in a much better position to make a conscious contribution to the advancement of civilization Earth. This is my actual agenda. This is what A Time of Change is intended to achieve.
There is an old word of wisdom saying, "Do good, then throw it into the sea." And so it goes.
