Gorillas, Chimpanzees, and other Primates

Some 50 years ago, Earth population was 3,329,122,479. Let us retreat a few more years to, say, 1950. In that year, the headcount hovered around 2.5 billion. Even this smaller number was greater than any in modern or ancient history. Today, in 2016, human population is reputed to have reached 7,404,976,783.  What is even more disturbing is that by the year 2062, we are estimated to will have crossed the 10 billion mark.

Let us assume that there is a finite number of ‘souls’ created (evolved?) to inhabit the human form. Surely, the number of souls incarnated into human body must have reached its apex long ago. Hence, even if periods between reincarnations last a lot longer than the time we spend on Earth, in this illusory, phenomenal reality, we must have run out ‘human’ souls long ago. Therefore, once the total number of souls allotted to human species has been reached, the new, some 5 billion additional humans, must have drawn on other sources. If we accept the concept of evolution, then it is reasonable to assume that great many ‘souls’ walking the Earth today are incarnated into a human form for the VERY FIRST TIME.
This would account for the comportment of the masses, who resemble monkeys (no offense to simians, they have their rights) a lot more than humans. One look at the behaviour of public attending countless TV shows, professional sports events, or even some political conventions, attest to this theory.
I’m sure that in a few millennia from now some of them, perhaps most, will resemble humans not only in external appearance but also in modus vivendi. Until then, however, we should not expect from them more than they are capable of offering. After all, we all began where they are now, a few billion of them—crossing the great divide from reactive to proactive life-forms.

On the other hand, taking into account that technology has equipped us with additional power in many fields of endeavour, and since power corrupts, we might be in serious trouble. We know that among primates, all alpha males fight for prominence. Recently, females have joined ranks of  those want their finger on the nuclear button.  
Due to the exemplary diligence with which we ignore the repeated advice of great mystics and philosophers, we are in grave danger of regressing to more primitive forms, perhaps below those of monkeys and other vertebrates. The chances that a baby born today will be equipped with a soul which gained previous human experience is nominal at best.

Many are called, but Few are chosen. The rest, some 5 billion people, have not yet entered the ranks of the Many, let alone the Few. They are the masses waiting to discover that they are not their bodies. Nor what their bodies were, are, or will be. There is ample evidence that the overwhelming majority of us have not discovered this fact. Those who have, embark on the most exhilarating journey towards infinity.
The journey is eternal.

On July 21st, for the second time this year, ALEC, Book One of the Alexander Trilogy, had been offered for free on the Amazon. I hope you got your copy. A few months ago, the book has achieved the distinction of being:

#1 Bestseller in Metaphysical Fiction,
#1 in Visionary, and
#1 in Time Travel categories

 of Amazon Sales Rating. Since, Amazon has extended the novel to “young adult,” “mystery,” “new Adult & College” and a few other categories. ALEC, though essentially an adventure novel, also helps to illustrate the first steps we must all take towards discovering our true nature. The steps which lead to the eventual unification of our Self with our ego. The time when we become One. And now, lo and behold, the same three #1 placements had been achieved within just a few hours. Once again ALEC is a bestseller!

You will follow Alec Baldwin, a precocious lad with unbridled imaginations, as he explores the creative potential innate within his individuality. He even inspires his parents to reach out for their hopes, to fulfill their aspirations. Will they all succeed?
Alec expands his consciousness high enough to dwell, at times, in the realm of imagination. To him, as indeed to some of us, this realm is as real as our physical reality. For most of us it only occurs in dreams, when wittingly or not our brains enter alpha rhythm. But we can all do it. The potential is dormant within us.
Alec reaches out beyond that. He meets himself among the stars...
“The cosmic merging of Alec and Sandra (Alexandra?) is exceptional writing, even for you. It should touch every sensitive reader in their innermost centers,” wrote Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.

Alec will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget. Below you can glance at some reactions from my readers. Just a few 5 STAR blurbs from the Amazon:

What an imagination!
Fantasy that Inspires!
Adventures of the Mind

TERRORISTS - International Intrigue

A few days ago I made a half-hearted proposal on Facebook. The vital point was that for each woman or child, let alone man, our bombs kill, a new aspiring terrorist is born. After all, every action precipitates an equal yet opposite reaction. It restores—no matter how unpleasant—balance.
As for the rest of my proposal a:


I have been a little premature in my assumptions. Apparently in Fallujah (Iraq) the IS had engaged in large-scale improvised weapons production. Now that Fallujah has been retaken by friendly forces, there is no reason to believe that the terrorists have any other manufacturing capabilities.

As of now, we kid ourselves thinking that we can continue to make a fortune by selling arms, and defeat the enemy which is using them. Yet this seems to be the prevailing philosophy not only in the USA but in, Western Europe, Jordan, Turkey and other greedy nations. (We also export military vehicles to countries with abysmal Human Rights record).
To my knowledge, the men and women forming the haphazard ranks of various terrorist organizations do not own a single munitions factory. They also do not manufacture any vehicles, tanks, even motorcycles. Furthermore, there are no farmers amongst them, none of their members produce anything at all - except death. Every single item which they use to murder us, and their own people who do not show absolute obedience to the misguided version of their beliefs, is supplied to them by us. By the taxpayers of particularly the western nations. We alone are responsible for great many deaths. Until ‘ordinary’ people rise against their own plutocrats who grow rich out of murder, nothing will change.
We continue to support governments which indulge in international intrigues for the sole purpose of making money for the rich. This is not fiction. This is fact.

As for fiction, one such scenario of international intrigue is suggested in the novel ELOHIM, the sequel to ONE JUST MAN.  My publisher writes: “In truly Stan Law’s style, this book is both, a bold exploration of human potential, and an international thriller. As an added bonus, Peter Thornton shows us the way to join him in the realm of man’s ultimate destiny.”
People seem to like it.
"A sparkling novel that frames Dr. Peter Thornton's intensely personal journey of self-discovery in the best of high stakes international intrigue," wrote B. Symonds on Amazon.
Later you can enjoy Book Three of the Trilogy, WINSTON’S KINGDOM.

Bestsellers come in Pairs

The Trilogy consists of ALEC, the precocious boy coming of age, who grew up to be ALEXANDER, the young man who become a brilliant physicist determined to unlock the secrets of the Universe. In Book Three, his son, SACHA, took the journey even further. Unable to reconcile the phenomenal reality with his inner knowledge, he decided to work, slave and research until he found out what is his dharma, his purpose in this world. Finally, he did and his discovery will upset the whole of humanity for all time.

 In Book Two, Alexander or Alex did not find it easy to reconcile the idealism of his youth with the pragmatism of adulthood. His early experiences made it particularly difficult, as “Princes Sandra” continued to lay claim on his mind, his emotions, and even his body. Sandra’s unrelenting demands took a heavy toll on Dr. Alexander Baldwin until he finally understood that Sandra was his inseparable inner Self. He found it amazing how often we forget that physically we are little more than transient vagabonds in an equally transient world. Our true Self is beyond time, beyond space, in a way omnipresent and immortal. Or, at the very least, we are individualizations of that which manifests those traits.
As he matured, Alexander took advantage of his knowledge by visiting ancient sites, civilizations, or just simply other realities. He found that we do not evolve by inventing ever-new gadgets which enable us to grow mentally and physically lazy, but by exploring our inner potential. This realization has rewards that lie beyond human understanding.

To my surprise, not all bestsellers conquer the market because of their sexually effusive contents. While most books on the market are replete with murder and eroticism with overtones of sadomasochism, there are those rare jewels which make the grade in the hearts and minds of the readers without appealing to our lower nature. ALEC is such a book, yet for weeks it rode the crest of the #1 Bestsellers on the Amazon in 3 different categories. Soon, I feel, it will be there again.
I can’t help hoping that when the time comes you, my dear, dear readers, will place ALEXANDER at the same level. Bestsellers… here we come!
