About the Book





  • Life subjects that often confound and confuse


  • Guidance on such items as resistance to freedom, removal of mule bite and kick marks,*, crookedness, shamelessness, revenge ,vulgarity,the unknown and the unknowable; then, there is depressed consciousness.


  • Exposure and analysis as religious and intellectual fraud such things as President Obama's "Man in the pulpit",RICK WARREN’s bestseller,  THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, which in the author's view is well meant but written and conceived from a juvenile stage of mind and in effect, promoting and preserving juvenality in adults by religious teachings that reflect a WORLD-BY-MAGIC position in place of a WORLD-BY-LOGIC one, normal for whole adults,
  • .Similar effects are had by the standard religious doctrine in most religions prevalent over the ages and today including killing in the name of God, constructive slavery (usually women) and stealing as in the current state of affairs in Venezuela,
  • The role of child maltreatment in fomenting the above with its resultant trance, the original lie and the ultimate life-lie, that is, that children do not matter and that one can think his way in or out of anything,

·        Such trance behavior allows the election of persons who are addicts, law breakers, marital cheaters and ego-feeders,

·        The emotionally hard work required to break that trance and to be free from the stubborn contamination that is to blame for the state of the world. It allows a reclaiming of vulnerability and an abandonment of cerebralization.

·        The unknowable mystery of God and the juvenile obsession to discover and dissect. God, the Creator, is also God, the Destroyer

( ie., Acts of God) , Most reject or hide from that part.

·        Child abuse-dominated nations like North Korea and Iran, one being in an atheist trance and the other, a theist one, as stark examples.
