There seems to be an inclination within mankind to feel as though something is missing. What it is exactly is often difficult to put into words, yet we are left with the notion that there is something greater than little ol’ us – Great Truth – we must seek to find.
The problem with our search for truth is that we often look in all the wrong places. We look to preachers and gurus thinking perhaps that have a special connection to Truth which we ourselves do not have access. By following these teachers we think perhaps some of their special revelation will be extended to us.
We look to nature and the wondrous beauty therein; we think that in the physical forms of nature we will see the way things really are. This naturalistic pursuit of truth often leads to a purely mechanical view of existence by which we become convinced that physical nature is truly all there is and all that is true.
Within this book I will present ideas for us to play with, thoughts for us to expand our vision upon, and questions to inspire those thoughts – whatever they may be. I am writing this book because I enjoy writing about ideas I think to be vitally important to our lives and how we interact with one another. I am not trying to convince you of anything; nor convert you to my way of thinking. A true artist creates artwork they enjoy, and if someone else happens to enjoy their art, that’s alright. It is in this spirit that I write this book.
