Book Excerpt :

“A haunting novel that will make readers wonder.”-Orlando Sentinel Nemo's mother and father left him behind to enter "the Bin"—joining twelve billion uploaded personalities who live in crime-free, disease-free and deathless virtual societies. Nemo has come of age on a dangerous, near-deserted planet populated by a handful of stragglers: religious fundamentalists and rebels, the creeps and the crazies. Now he is twenty-one. And on a rare, reluctant visit to the parents who abandoned flesh and son for cyber-utopia, Nemo has met the perfect woman: a new Bin arrival named Justine, a beautiful pop singer who dreams other people's dreams in the virtual night. Now an inconvenient attraction is leading two lovers into a perilous mire of irreversible choice. For Justine has no body to return to. And Nemo the renegade has sworn never to sacrifice his own; to live, age, and die instead in a bleak earthly hell. Because, as an outsider, he may enter the Bin for short periods of time. But if he ever decides to stay...there will be no way out again. “EARTHLY AND SPIRITUAL DELIGHTS AROUND… DENNIS DANVERS'S MOVE TO SF IS A WELCOME ONE."-Washington Post "A wild ride."-Details "Danvers isn't exactly a household name in SF circles... CIRCUIT OF HEAVEN may change that."- Locus

Book Short Summary:

Little Bird of Heaven by Joyce Carol Oates is a riveting story of love violently lost and found in late 20th century America. In this novel, Oates returns to the Buffalo, New York, region to brilliantly explore the dangerous intersections of romance and eroticism, guilt and obsession, desire and murder. Little Bird of Heaven, a soaring work by the New York Times bestselling author and a nominee for the 2009 Man Booker Prize—one of the world’s most prestigious literary awards—is as powerful and unforgettable as Joyce Carol Oates’s previous acclaimed novels The Gravedigger’s Daughter and We Were the Mulvaneys.

Book Short Summary:

In this "captivating" crime novel (People), Texas Ranger Darren Mathews is on the hunt for a missing child -- but it's the boy's family of white supremacists who are his real target. 9-year-old Levi King knew he should have left for home sooner; now he's alone in the darkness of vast Caddo Lake, in a boat whose motor just died. A sudden noise distracts him - and all goes dark. Darren Mathews is trying to emerge from another kind of darkness; after the events of his previous investigation, his marriage is in a precarious state of re-building, and his career and reputation lie in the hands of his mother, who's never exactly had his best interests at heart. Now she holds the key to his freedom, and she's not above a little maternal blackmail to press her advantage. An unlikely possibility of rescue arrives in the form of a case down Highway 59, in a small lakeside town where the local economy thrives on nostalgia for ante-bellum Texas - and some of the era's racial attitudes still thrive as well. Levi's disappearance has links to Darren's last case, and to a wealthy businesswoman, the boy's grandmother, who seems more concerned about the fate of her business than that of her grandson. Darren has to battle centuries-old suspicions and prejudices, as well as threats that have been reignited in the current political climate, as he races to find the boy, and to save himself.

But a surprise awaits Michael St. Pierre deep inside the Vatican, an ancient secret so explosive, it sends him running for his life—from the streets of Rome to a small stone church in Israel—with two stolen keys and a terrible realization: the consequences of his desperate, brazen act are far greater than he could ever have imagined.

In Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone, a desperate family seeks a new beginning in the near-isolated wilderness of Alaska only to find that their unpredictable environment is less threatening than the erratic behavior found in human nature. #1 New York Times Instant Bestseller (February 2018) A People “Book of the Week” Buzzfeed’s “Most Anticipated Women’s Fiction Reads of 2018” Seattle Times’s “Books to Look Forward to in 2018” Alaska, 1974. Ernt Allbright came home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier. Cora will do anything for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown. Thirteen-year-old Leni, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, has little choice but to go along, daring to hope this new land promises her family a better future. In a wild, remote corner of Alaska, the Allbrights find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the newcomers’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources. But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own.

Book Short Summary:

“This electrifying novel of love, creativity and madness moves between Elizabethan England and 21st-century New York.” —The Guardian A New York Times Notable Book of the Year New York, late summer, 2000. A party in a spacious Manhattan apartment, hosted by a wealthy young activist. Dozens of idealistic twenty-somethings have impassioned conversations over takeout dumplings and champagne. The evening shines with the heady optimism of a progressive new millennium. A young man, Ben, meets a young woman, Kate—and they begin to fall in love. Kate lives with her head in the clouds, so at first Ben isn’t that concerned when she tells him about the recurring dream she’s had since childhood. In the dream, she’s transported to the past, where she lives a second life as Emilia, the mistress of a nobleman in Elizabethan England. But for Kate, the dream becomes increasingly real, to the point where it threatens to overwhelm her life. And soon she’s waking from it to find the world changed—pictures on her wall she doesn’t recognize, new buildings in the neighborhood that have sprung up overnight. As Kate tries to make sense of what’s happening, Ben worries the woman he’s fallen in love with is losing her grip on reality. Both intoxicating and thought-provoking, The Heavens is a powerful reminder of the consequences of our actions, a poignant testament to how the people we love are destined to change, and a masterful exploration of the power of dreams. “Heady and elegant.” —The New York Times Book Review “A complex, unmissable work from a writer who deserves wide acclaim.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Book Short Summary:

A baker in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, must travel to Paris to uncover a family secret for her dying grandmother—and what she learns may change everything. The Sweetness of Forgetting is the book that made Kristin Harmel an international bestseller. At thirty-six, Hope McKenna-Smith is no stranger to bad news. She lost her mother to cancer, her husband left her for a twenty-two year old, and her bank account is nearly depleted. Her own dreams of becoming a lawyer long gone, she’s running a failing family bakery on Cape Cod and raising a troubled preteen. Now, Hope’s beloved French-born grandmother Mamie, who wowed the Cape with her fabulous pastries for more than fifty years, is drifting away into a haze of Alzheimer’s. But in a rare moment of clarity, Mamie realizes that unless she tells Hope about the past, the secrets she has held on to for so many years will soon be lost forever. Tantalizingly, she reveals mysterious snippets of a tragic history in Paris. And then, arming her with a scrawled list of names, she sends Hope to France to uncover a seventy-year-old mystery. Hope’s emotional journey takes her through the bakeries of Paris and three religious traditions, all guided by Mamie’s fairy tales and the sweet tastes of home. As Hope pieces together her family’s history, she finds horrific Holocaust stories mixed with powerful testimonies of her family’s will to survive in a world gone mad. And to reunite two lovers torn apart by terror, all she’ll need is a dash of courage, and the belief that God exists everywhere, even in cake...

Book Short Summary:

It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group's fate is determined less and less by what's happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Book Short Summary:

The Guardian's Best Science Book of 2017: the fascinating science and history of the air we breathe. It's invisible. It's ever-present. Without it, you would die in minutes. And it has an epic story to tell. In Caesar's Last Breath, New York Times bestselling author Sam Kean takes us on a journey through the periodic table, around the globe, and across time to tell the story of the air we breathe, which, it turns out, is also the story of earth and our existence on it. With every breath, you literally inhale the history of the world. On the ides of March, 44 BC, Julius Caesar died of stab wounds on the Senate floor, but the story of his last breath is still unfolding; in fact, you're probably inhaling some of it now. Of the sextillions of molecules entering or leaving your lungs at this moment, some might well bear traces of Cleopatra's perfumes, German mustard gas, particles exhaled by dinosaurs or emitted by atomic bombs, even remnants of stardust from the universe's creation. Tracing the origins and ingredients of our atmosphere, Kean reveals how the alchemy of air reshaped our continents, steered human progress, powered revolutions, and continues to influence everything we do. Along the way, we'll swim with radioactive pigs, witness the most important chemical reactions humans have discovered, and join the crowd at the Moulin Rouge for some of the crudest performance art of all time. Lively, witty, and filled with the astounding science of ordinary life, Caesar's Last Breath illuminates the science stories swirling around us every second.

Book Short Summary:

Spanning an extraordinary range of subjects and locations, these ten gripping essays show why Jon Krakauer is considered a standard-bearer of modern journalism. His pieces take us from a horrifying avalanche on Mount Everest to a volcano poised to obliterate a big chunk of Seattle; from a wilderness teen-therapy program run by apparent sadists to an otherworldly cave in New Mexico, studied by NASA to better understand Mars; from the notebook of one Fred Beckey, who catalogued the greatest unclimbed mountaineering routes on the planet, to the last days of legendary surfer Mark Foo. Bringing together work originally published in such magazines as The New Yorker, Outside, and Smithsonian—all rigorously researched, vividly written, and marked by an unerring instinct for storytelling and scoop—Classic Krakauer powerfully demonstrates the author’s ambivalent love affair with unruly landscapes and his relentless search for truth.

Book Short Summary:

Will heaven be boring? How can a good and loving God send people to hell? Is there such a place as purgatory? If so, why is it necessary, if we're saved by grace? Questions about the afterlife abound. Given what is at stake, they are the most important questions we will ever consider. Recent years have seen a surge of Christian books written by people claiming to have received a glimpse of the afterlife, and numerous books, films, and TV shows have apocalyptic or postapocalyptic themes. Jerry Walls, a dynamic writer and expert on the afterlife, distills his academic writing on heaven, hell, and purgatory to offer clear biblical, theological, and philosophical grounding for thinking about these issues. He provides an ecumenical account of purgatory that is compatible with Protestant theology and defends the doctrine of eternal hell. Walls shows that the Christian vision of the afterlife illumines the deepest and most important issues of our lives, changing the way we think about happiness, personal identity, morality, and the very meaning of life.

Book Short Summary:

A powerful, epic novel of four friends as they grapple with desire, youth, death, and faith in a sweeping story by the international bestselling author of The Solitude of Prime Numbers “Perfect, moving, honest, brilliant, with characters who feel like old friends.” –Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer prize-winning author of Less "Heaven and Earth is a stunning achievement and confirms him as an electrifying presence in contemporary fiction.” –André Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name and Find Me Every summer Teresa follows her father to his childhood home in Puglia, down in the heel of Italy, a land of relentless, shimmering heat, centuries-old olive groves and families who have lived there for generations. She spends long afternoons enveloped in a sunstruck stupor, reading her grandmother's paperbacks. Everything changes the summer she meets the three boys who live on the farm next door: Nicola, Tommaso and Bern - the man Teresa will love for the rest of her life. Raised like brothers on a farm that feels to Teresa almost suspended in time, the three boys share a complex, intimate and seemingly unassailable bond. But no bond is unbreakable and no summer truly endless, as Teresa soon discovers. Because there is resentment underneath the surface of that strange brotherhood, a twisted kind of love that protects a dark secret. And when Bern - the enigmatic, restless gravitational centre of the group - commits a brutal act of revenge, not even a final pilgrimage to the edge of the world will be enough to bring back those perfect, golden hours in the shadow of the olive trees. An unforgettable story of enduring love, the bonds between men, and the all-too-human search for meaning, Heaven and Earth is Paolo Giordano at his best: an author capable of unveiling the depths of the human soul, who has now given us the old-fashioned pleasure of a big, sprawling novel in which to lose ourselves.

Book Short Summary:

Ren Daiyan was still just a boy when he took the lives of seven men while guarding an imperial magistrate of Kitai. That moment on a lonely road changed his life in entirely unexpected ways, sending him into the forests of Kitai among the outlaws. From there he emerges years later—and his life changes again, dramatically, as he moves toward the court and the emperor while war approaches Kitai from the north. Lin Shan is the daughter of a scholar, his beloved only child. Educated by him in ways young women never are, gifted as a songwriter and calligrapher, she finds herself living a life suspended between two worlds. Her intelligence captivates an emperor—and alienates women at court. But when her father’s life is endangered by the savage politics of the day, Shan must act in ways no woman ever has. In an empire divided by bitter factions circling an exquisitely cultured emperor who loves his gardens and his art far more than the burdens of governing, dramatic events on the northern steppe alter the balance of power in the world, leading to events no one could have foretold, under the river of stars.

From the New York Times bestselling author The Four Winds, a moving, powerful novel about the fragile threads that bind together our lives and the astonishing potential of second chances “A tender, beautifully told story of emotional growth, forgiveness [and] the possibility of miracles.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Madelaine Hillyard is a world-famous heart surgeon at the top of her game. Her personal life is far less successful. A loving but overworked single mom, she is constantly at odds with her teenage daughter. At sixteen, Lina is confused, angry, and fast becoming a stranger to her mother—a rebel desperate to find the father who walked away before she was born. Complicating matters for Madelaine are the vastly different DeMarco brothers: While priest Francis DeMarco is always ready to lend a helping hand, his brother, Angel, long ago took on the role of bad boy. Years earlier Angel abandoned Madelaine—and fatherhood—to go in search of fame and fortune. His departure left Madelaine devastated, but now he reappears and seeks help from the very people he betrayed—as a patient in dire need.

Book Short Summary:

Unlike todays world religious views, the belief in one Supreme Being was once a widespread phenomenon. In The Separation of Heaven and Earth, author Harold Montzka provides evidence of this contemporary view with new arguments. By studying anthropology and the history of religions, Montzka shows evidence for the belief system of the egalitarian hunters who spread across the globe. In the Near East, the area from the mountains in Turkey to the Persian Gulf, people traded freely without evidence of borders or conflict. Then, social hierarchy became evident in a small area. Shortly after this, a number of hierarchical sites appeared suddenly, and society saw massive buildings, city walls, ethnic divisions, trade to benefit the elites, war, and instability. Developed over forty years, The Separation of Heaven and Earth points out that a single cosmological theme was present in ancient literature as well as recent preliterate hierarchies. The cosmology justifying the elites in hierarchical societies provided for the society by control of nature. Those few groups who have remained egalitarian do not use this cosmology. They are not dependent on the rituals of a social hierarchy; they depend on the providence of their creator.

Book Short Summary:

The mystery of number Seven is shrouded in the Brahmanical traditions and the Chaldæo-Judaic Kabbalah. The sacredness of numbers begins with the great First — the ONE, and ends only with the nought or zero — symbol of the infinite and boundless circle which represents the universe. Number Seven is the most sacred of all. Vach, the sacred word or speech, is personified in Sarasvati, the consort of Brahm?, who is the goddess of the sacred or “Secret Knowledge.” It is impossible to study with profit the Brahmanical and Buddhistic sacred books without having a perfect comprehension of the esoteric meaning of the Pythagorean numerals. The chief problems of every theology lie concealed beneath an imagery of fire and the varying rhythm of its flames. Every sin becomes incarnated and, like an avenging fiend, persecutes its perpetrator. For every sound awakens a corresponding one in the invisible world of spirit, and the repercussion produces either a good or bad effect. The Vedas, established long before the great wave of emigration from Asia all over the Occident, proclaim their parentage of every philosophy and every religious institution developed later among Semitic peoples. The numerals most frequently occurring in Sanskrit chants, those sublime hymns to Creation, to the unity of God, and to the countless manifestations of His power, are One, Three, and Seven. Our object is to show the existence of a religious system in India for many thousands of years before the exoteric fables of the Garden of Eden and the Deluge had been invented, hence the underlying identity of doctrines. The Hindu gods are masks without an actor, names without being — not beings without names. What the world-renowned and subtile intellect of the ancient Hindu sages failed to understand, no modern scientist, however learned, can hope to fathom. Without esoteric interpretation, the Old Testament becomes an absurd jumble of meaningless tales — nay, worse than that, it must rank high among immoral books. The word veda is synonymous with the Greek ?????????, which Plato uses when speaking of the wise. To banish the Brahmanas is to fling away the key that unlocks the door of the Rig-Veda. Why the contemptible disdain of a conclave of European and especially German savants for Hindu scholars? Are Max Müller’s “Whoish” hymns of the Rig-Veda less reverential than the “I-amish” psalms? The Pythagorean Tetractys was the square placed below the triangle; the latter, or the Trinity, embodying the invisible Monad or Unity, was deemed too sacred to be pronounced except within the walls of a sanctuary. The Jews borrowed their Sabbath from the ancients, who called it Saturn’s day and deemed it unlucky, and not the latter from the Israelites when christianized. Sheer religious tyranny was the Christian Sabbath introduced by Protestants. There was no need of the observance of Sabbaths before Moses, neither now is there any need of them after Jesus Christ. The people of India, Arabia, Syria, and Egypt observed weeks of seven days; and the Romans learned the hebdomadal method from these foreign countries when they became subject to the Empire. With every new quarter, the moon brings changes in the atmosphere, hence certain changes are also produced throughout the whole of our universe, of which the meteorological ones are the most insignificant. On this day of the seventh and most powerful of the prismatic days, the adepts of the “Secret Science” meet as they met thousands of years ago, to become the agents of the occult powers of nature. Who are these Elohim but the euhemerized powers of nature, the faithful manifested servants, the Laws of Him who is immutable law and harmony Himself? Matter is defied Spirit and the subordinate of Spirit. The allegorical curse under which it labours is that it only procreates, it does not create. The curse will last until every single particle of matter on earth shall have outlived its days and, by gradual transformation, re-integrates into the One Living Soul. The “days” of Genesis are the same as the “days” of Brahm?, i.e., periods of cosmic activity where worlds are being evolved, passing through four ages of existence. Properly speaking, the story of the formation of our earth, or “creation,” as it is very improperly called, begins with the rescue of Noah from the deluge. Noah is pure spirit, floating on the waters in his ark, and becoming intoxicated with the fumes of earthly life as soon as it is finally imprisoned in matter. The Hindu accounts of the “deluge” maintain that a partial cataclysm occurs at the close of every “age” of the world, which does not destroy the latter, but only changes its general appearance. New races of men and animals and a new flora evolve from the dissolution of the precedent ones. For the Christianesque Orientalists the biblical Noachian ark has been a Procrustean bed to which they had to make everything fit. Ethnology would have been the gainer if the three sons of Noah had been washed overboard and drowned before the ark reached land! Noah, like all the euhemerized manifestations of the Unrevealed One, was androgyne. The Ark, in which are preserved the germs of all living things necessary to repeople the earth, represents the survival of life and the supremacy of spirit over matter, through the conflict of the two opposing powers of nature. Noah is Logos. The animals shut up in his ark are the human passions. Adam is the prototype of Noah. Adam falls because he eats of the forbidden fruit of celestial knowledge; Noah, because he tastes of the terrestrial fruit: the juice of the grape representing the abuse of knowledge in an unbalanced mind. The allegories of the “fall of man” and the “deluge,” are the two most important features of the Pentateuch. The very absence of all mention of the deluge from the oldest books of the Hindus suggests that the Vedas would never have failed to contain a few hymns on the terrible disaster which, of all other natural manifestations, must have struck the imagination of the people who witnessed it. The fullest account of the deluge is found in the Mahabharata of Veda-Vyasa, a poem in honour of the astrological allegories on the wars between the Solar and the Lunar races. The Mahabharata by far antedates the age of Cyrus, a Zoroastrian. Astronomical calculations show that it is at least 20,000 years old. There are no proofs of the twelve tribes of Israel having ever existed; that of Levi was a priestly caste and all the others imaginary. Herodotus, who was in Assyria when Ezra flourished, never mentions the Israelites at all. The story of the conquering army of Alexander penetrating into Northern India, itself becomes more doubted every day. No Hindu national record, not the slightest historical memento, throughout the length and breadth of India offers the slightest trace of such an invasion. Nevertheless, heathen fables are far less preposterous and blasphemous than those imposed upon Christians, ever since the Church accepted the Old Testament, and the Roman Catholic Church opened its register of thaumaturgical saints. The Christian clergy, instead of allowing the interpretation to those who have the key to these seeming incongruities, they have assumed to themselves the office and right to interpret these in their own way. They have thus deprived the Hebrew clergy of the means to interpret their scriptures as their fathers did. Myths are now proved to be fables, just in proportion as we misunderstand them; truths, in proportion as they were once understood. Our ignorance has made a myth of history; and this ignorance is a Hellenic inheritance, the result of Hellenic vanity. Max Müller cannot make up his mind about the condition of nirvana. What is certain is that nirvana is an impersonal but actionless state, and a refuge from rebirth. Out of the sacred writings of all nations, that sprung from the primitive stock of mankind, Christianity picked out for its guidance the records and scriptures of a people perhaps the least spiritual of the human family. A strange and most unfortunate choice! Egypt owes her civilization, commonwealth, and arts, especially the art of building, to pre-Vedic India. She was a colony of dark-skinned Aryans, those whom Homer and Herodotus term the eastern Æthiopians, i.e., the inhabitants of Southern India, who brought to her their ready-made civilization. The Æthiopians were originally an Indian race, compelled to emigrate from the mother-land for sacrilege and regicide. Hence the consanguinity between the Æthiopians and the Aryan, dark-skinned races, and between the latter and the Egyptians. The earliest form of Egyptian religious worship and government, theocratic and sacerdotal, habits and customs, they all indicate an Indian origin. Of all the dialects and tongues alleged to be Semitic, the Æthiopian alone is written from left to right, like the Sanskrit and that of the Indo-Aryan people. Edward Pococke belongs to that class of Orientalists who believe that Buddhism preceded Brahmanism and was the religion of the earliest Vedas, Gautama having been but the restorer of it in its purest form, which after him degenerated again into dogmatism. In in his most ingenious work, “India in Greece,” Professor Pococke advocates and endeavours to establish the identity of the Egyptian, Greek, and Indian mythologies. King David is the Israelitish King Arthur. The stories of Samuel and David and Solomon are mythical. There are two parallel streams in the religious worship of the Israelites: one belonging to the state religion and adopted to fit political exigencies; the other, pure idolatry resulting from ignorance of the esoteric doctrine preached by Moses. Hezekiah was the expected Messiah of the exoteric state-religion. But he tore violently away the people of Israel from the religion of their fathers, and the secret rites instituted by Moses. There is no real history in the Old Testament, and the little historical information one can glean is only found in the indiscreet revelations of the prophets. The primordial “moisture” is the sea, an infernal goddess. In the world of stars and planets she is known as Ishtar or Astoreth. She is identical with Venus and every other Queen of Heaven, with Eve, the mother of all that live, and with Mary. Woman stands in cosmogony in relation to primordial matter, or the great deep as the “Virgin of the Sea,” who crushes the “dragon” under her foot. The multifaceted meanings of treading upon the “serpent” and crushing its head explained. To the eyes of the hypocrite and puritan, certain old Pagan symbols appear scandalously immoral, thus perverting the purity of ancient thought. The biblical allegory of Cain and Abel embodied in the philosophical conception of the eternal struggle of good and evil. Shiva is the destroyer, but he is also the regenerator. Cain is a murderer, but he is also the creator of nations, and an inventor. It is no accident that in the Sethite table Enoch comes second from Adam, and is father to Cain. This inversion of paternity is intended to create confusion and baffling inquiry. Cain presides over the Taurus. Abel is the female counterpart of Cain, for they are twins and probably androgynous; the latter answering to Wisdom; the former, to Intelligence. Twelve great gods preside over the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac. The Progenitors of the human race, the “Mind-born Sons” of Brahm?, were degraded from their exalted positions of gods into mere patriarchs. Anak is Enoch, the patriarch, who “dies not,” and who is the first possessor of the “mirific name.” The biblical patriarchs are mirrored backwards in the vedic patriarchs, who are the primitive types upon which all the others were modelled. But before comparison is possible, the Hindu myths must be comprehended in their true significance. The Jewish Adonai and the Hindu Ardhanari are one the same, symbols of Humanity’s hermaphrodite Third Race. Enoch is the type of dual man, spiritual and terrestrial. He and Michael are one and the same. He “walked with God” and “did not die” for he is eternal in spirit and eternal in flesh, though the latter undergoes endless death and rebirth. His place is the centre of the astronomical cross. The gross materialism of the Pentateuch exceeds any theistical conception in Pagan literature. Who were those who dared to reject the dogma that Jesus was the son of God? Nearly all the prophecies about Christ are credited to patriarchs and prophets. Only the Zodiac, when interpreted esoterically, will shed light on the relation of its signs to the progenitors of the human race. The key to unlocking the relationship between the biblical patriarchs and the mind-baffling Wheel of Ezekiel lies in the Hindu Cosmogony. Two mystical signs were inserted into the Zodiac as blinds, to conceal the true names which gave the key to the whole secret of creation. According to the esoteric doctrine of the Wisdom-Religion, Scorpio is the patriarch that degraded the whole universe by leading the cosmic evolution downward and outward, from the subjective realms of being to the objective, physical existence. When woman issues from the left rib of the second Adam of dust, the pure Virgo is separated and, falling “into generation” or the downward cycle, becomes Scorpio, emblem of sin and matter. The sign of Libra was invented by the Greeks. The scales stand for equilibrium which is necessary in a universe of harmony, of exact justice, of the balance of centripetal and centrifugal forces, darkness and light, spirit and matter. Though the Book of Genesis belongs to an immense antiquity, it is of a much later date than the invention of Libra. This patriarch is identical with Enoch and Hermes. Oannes is the emblem of priestly, esoteric wisdom; he comes out from the sea, because the “great deep,” the water, typifies the Secret Doctrine. Water represents the duality of both Macrocosmos and Microcosmos vivified by Spirit — which Spirit (Nous), by agitating the mighty mass, unfolds and evolves our beautiful little world from the Universal Cosmos. The ten biblical patriarchs are identical with the Hindu Prajapatis, and the Sephiroth of the Kabbalah. By converting one name into another, the Masorah has helped to falsify the little that was left original in the primitive Scriptures. The Wheel of Ezekiel explained exoterically and esoterically. And the names of the patriarchs listed as they ought to stand in their relation to the Zodiac. Their names were not originally Hebrew, though they may have been Hebraized later on; they are evidently of Assyrian or Aryan origin. The antediluvian dynasties of the Prajapatis reigned for 4,320,000 human years. Each of the twelve “hours” of Nychthemeron typifies the evolution of a new man, and in its turn is divided into four quarters or ages. In each of the four yugas-ages of the world, which proceed in succession during the manvantaric cycle, human life loses one-fourth of its lifespan. Like the stars, the shape of the archetypal man was spheroid for, being a pure spiritual entity, he had no use for limbs. The real Hebrew Bible is a secret volume, unknown to the masses.

Book Short Summary:

There are well over one hundred different views of the nature of human existence; though the Bible may rule out many of these, there still remains a large number that are all compatible with Scripture. The Bible never explicitly defines the nature of the soul or spirit, which is actually quite puzzling or even ironic, given that one major aim of Scripture is spiritual development and ultimate questions about the soul. In fact, Judeo-Christian thinking on those questions has been evolving over the course of four thousand years. This book documents that evolution as a man named Abram left Babylon four thousand years ago, journeying through the lands and the philosophies of civilizations preceding him by many more thousands of years, while he and his descendants (both physical and spiritual) unpacked their understanding of our inner being—the human soul—and the afterlife. That journey is followed to the present day, and examines how a critically thinking Christian can embrace a theology of the human soul that is fully compatible with modern scientific findings, including explanations for consciousness, mind, and soul.
