So you might wonder what compelled me to write Of Gods and Men. Well, It was a long journey. My studies of comparative religion, ancient myth of many nations, even races, particle physics, and most of all my inner need to make sense of the repeated assurances of Matthew, Mark and Luke that:
There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid, that shall not be known… neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad…*
Hence, for those who call themselves Christians, there can be NO mysteries. What there is in great amplitude is research. I got down to work.
Now you know what most of the Aquarius Trilogy is intended to be about. Not what is the books are about, but what motivated me to write them. In a way, it is an iconoclastic elimination of imagined mysteries. Of course, at the moment, I only have Books One and Two, but as you know from the last blog, Book Three is in the oven.
As you might have gathered from my many blogs, I do not recognize the reality in which we have our becoming as real. I mean, not really real. A reality built up from atoms which, according to the best scientists around consist of almost exclusively empty space (99.9999999999999% of it), can hardly be regarded as real. Hence, whatever I detect with my physical senses I know that it is only a means to an end, and the end is most certainly NOT the perception of truth.
If the various ancient writings were to make any sense, and not be just ravings of a derange mind, or minds, then I set myself up to unravel those supposed mysteries. At least, what various religions, particularly the Christians like to call mysteries. I could either believe the sacerdotal society, which positioned itself between us and the Infinite, or reach out to the original myths and, as best I could, solve them.
Book One and Two of the Aquarius Trilogy attempts to explain some of them. The last book of the trilogy will, hopefully, do the rest. I am not presumptuous enough to offer my own ramblings as theological or scientific dissertations. Au contraire. I offer my findings in the form of three novels, which will serve, I hope, to stimulate your own minds to delve, indeed to dive deep, into the endless ocean of true reality.
As for references, which made me question the ramblings of the learned theologians, you can refer to my essay #15, Mystery, in my Beyond Religion II collection of essays.
Let me know what you think.
