Welcome to our strange world in which we all just appeared without
website is intended to provide some interesting ideas and information about our
position and prospects. First, I will introduce you to my large oil painting,
done a decade or two ago as man began to visualize how his galaxy world might
appear from a great distance. We can't see it this way because we are in it.
Our entire solar system is thought to be situated inside one of the great
forked arms of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is composed of billions of
stars in a flat wheel-like form with a black hole in its center. Its shape
suggests that it is all rotating very much like a pin wheel almost a hundred
thousand light years in diameter.
We will all live and die very much confined to our relatively small insignificant planet. But what meaning do we have as humans evolved from the smallest of cells and animals. As our brain grows and develops following birth it acquires information and experience and raises many question about our makeup, our universe, religion, and purpose. Unfortunately, the emotional mind is often dominant over the mind of logic and reason. Our biological memories allow us to appreciate a period of life and we must make the best of it. I have written a good many books many of which are in the form of religious satire containing thoughts for world improvement that I would like to share with my readers.
The popular Cackelry Series of four semi-fictional books is the most prominent of my recent publications. They feature the exciting adventures of Professor Jeremiah B Cackelry, III, and his profound expressions of ideology and philosophy. Cackelry was an Oxford professor from a long line of theologians but he was a nonbeliever with a mind and ideology very much like that of Professor Albert Einstein, my former neighbor in Princeton. The professor retired to build a futuristic university in Zurich to pursue his unique research only to encounter problems of adventure and intrigue. He married his young assistant and met death by overdose of erectile medication.
Cackelry's widow subsequently married his oldest son and became involved in the Sacred Legend of the Great Wall. The first century Chinese ambassador to the Romans abducted the Christ child from the manger with the hope that the Messianic Prophesy would benefit his country. It led to a modern search of the wall to find the ancient records based on the solution of a complex matrix composed of a collection of early trading seals. The mystery was resolved with the help of Interpol.
Cackelry experiences a strange nightmare finding his soul in a strange sort of heaven without a god and becomes its leader. He interacts with many famous souls who met death since the beginning of man and acknowledges the expanding role of woman. Existence forever without experiencing emotion, led to disenchantment and he escapes back to earth where he was resuscitated to continue his life's obsession "to save the deteriorating world."
Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg address emphasized that "it is for us, the living" to be responsible for creating a better world. Professor Cackelry as Secretary General, seeing life without heavenly guidance, creates a more powerful Third Millennium United Nations for improved planetary governance to achieve peaceful coexistence without war. He remarries his former wife whose latest husband succumbs to the Black Death secretly contained in an old Greek urn named Pandora designed to hide important ancient discoveries such as the cloning of Jesus.
Where is Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 now? This book is based on a story that was already in process on 8 March, the day of its disappearance, a story that was merged with a vision of what might have happened based on the extensive media reports. It suggests a possible alternative view with suitable characters and motives, and includes a harsh critique on inadequate aircraft tracking in our modern world of advanced communication and electronic technology.
This new book interprets the basis of fundamental belief based on factual knowledge and rapidly evolving human reasoning. It is based on new knowledge of the structure and function of the human mind and the observed nature of the universe as a mechanistic structure that existed eons before minds existed. It acknowledges a flurry of publications by new atheism authors that retain respect and admiration of the sincere intention of traditional religions which may soon prove to be without merit. This work may be the first to predict greatly increased worldwide secularism in the coming centuries. It visualizes more widespread planetary governance, more ideal behavior and more acceptable coexistence. This forward looking book of contrariety recognizes the strong imaginative emotional mind and verifies observed human trends toward greater reason and realism. It discusses troublesome religious conflict and unwarranted influences on common matters such as election processes, marriage, reproductive behavior, biological research, medicine and many other affairs of man. Its objective is to encourage better understanding of real versus imaginative thought, leading to a more ideal world.
This book represents the initial provisional draft of the work shown
above, subsequently published under the title, "The Precarious Human Role in a Mechanistic Universe."
The more complete final publication renders this bound draft form obsolete. The original printing was
widely submitted for peer review by persons in applicable fields for comments and suggestions.
The work was intended to demonstrate the indicated long term trend toward secularism as man gains new knowledge and stronger executive capability in the still developing forebrain. It acknowledges an anticipated short term period of conflict among groups of world society based on different established religious traditions, real or imaginary, relative to the eventuality and purpose of human life. A more serious objective was to stimulate factual education and the realization that man must be aware of his unrefined animal ancestry and must strive to cooperate with fellow man if peaceful and satisfactory planetary coexistence is ever to be gained. Far from religion-bashing this work recognizes that many deep seated imagined beliefs can provide peaceful and satisfactory existence from birth to death but it is imperative that no man aggressively influence the religious belief of another, especially children under the age of reason.
Writing under the pseudonym John F. Brain, the author describes the
changing perspectives of man and his world, seldom recognized or appreciated during his
limited lifetime. He answers lingering questions of origin and emphasizes the ongoing
role of the still-developing mind as the basis of problematic behavior in current society.
He suggests that expanded factual education will not only result in greater recognition
of reality but would result in substantial decline in the troublesome uncertain, mystical,
and negative constructs of the present emotional mind.
Employing a familiar biblical format, the author calls upon the
most advanced knowledge of modern neuroscience to discuss the origin and practice of
religious activity around the world, He employs the three principal development stages
of the mind to explain the wide range of imaginative beliefs and related behavior among
cultures around the global community. He emphasizes the greater need for factual education
for exercising the responsibilities of leadership, especially those involved in legislative,
judicial and executive processes.
