The author was living a normal secular life as a practicing physician when in the autumn of 2005, he endured a weeklong epiphany, a religious experience that was personally compelling and caused him to change the direction of his life. It took the author ten years to assimilate the information he received during that single week.
The author did not want to write this book; indeed, he does not know if all of the details are correct even though the intent is clear. The author was asked by a divine entity to make this knowledge public. The author was confronted with a simple choice: ignore the experience, turn his back upon God, and continue to live a normal life, or write it down and endure the slings and arrows of outrage and ridicule.
The author lives amongst the trees with his wife, five dogs, two horses, a large bird, and many motorized off-road vehicles along the banks of a beautiful year-round creek, at the edge of the electrical grid, adjacent to BLM and National Forest land in Southern Oregon.
