This is just a quick note to let you know that I have began reading your new book! I must tell you, that I have found it most stimulating!
We seem to be on the same page, as far as perspectives, windows, through which the world is viewed, or seen, is concerned!
To me, your book is extremely relevant for today.
In today's world, where people are flooded with new information, one HAS TO BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS AS TO WHERE HE SPENDS HIS TIME, if one wants the best return for his investment! This is sort of like the "Needle in the hay stack" scenario!
New information can be as STIFFLING AS NO INFORMATION, IN FACT, PROBABLY MORE SO, BECAUSE IN THE ONE CASE, ONE WOULD PROBABLY RECOGNIZE ONE'S LIMITED ENLIGHTENMENT, IN OTHER, ONE WOULD NOT, AND IN FACT, ONE WOULD PROBABLY BE LED TO BELIEVE ONE WAS "ON TOP OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING"! Why? Because one was filled with the latest in INFORMATION! The problem being, IT WAS NOT RELEVANT WHERE IT COUNTED OR MATTERED!!!!
Your book is one of these places where one's time would not be wasted, for it has within it's covers the ability to hand one the keys to open up doors to new worlds, by merely reassembling the old dots or pieces, one had previous knowledge of; NO matter one's field of interest!
Since, I last communicated with you, I have been driven, or have had my consciousness consumed, with studying the subject of "Subconscious Influences and Manipulations"! This stemmed from the book written by Carl ZImmer, called, "Parasite Rex", coupled with the book called "The Invisible Century" by Richard Penax.
Carl showed that the dominating force, within any ecosystem, or community, the dominate, controlling force, is that the one which is VISIBLY ASSUMED TO BE SO, such as the Dinosaurs which, because of their sheer size, could directly kill and consume anything within their reach! They were the top dog, so to speak, like the lion or eagle. BUT, he showed this was not ever the case! The real dinosaurs of any ecosystem, were those organisms, no matter how small, that found ways to turn other ORGANISMS INTO "LIVING" SACRIFICES, TO DO THE BIDDING OF THE PARASITIZOR!
This held true whether one considered the MAFIA, among higher, civilized primates, or even the seemingly insignificant ant colonies!
Your book, at the practicable level; or at the level where invisible motivators meet with and interact with the visible form of energy, matter, acts to confirm my assessment!
Whenever I read your book, it's just as though your reading my thoughts exactly, but at a little different level of organization!
To me, this can still be tied back to the nature within the energy source upon which all things that move, live, change, evolve, or exist, MUST DEPEND!
As it turns out, the only real effective PARASITICIDE, IS AN ELEVATED CONSCIOUSNESS! In this way, your book could be looked upon as a "Parasiticide"!
