Excerpt from the manuscript:

“These touchstones we encounter on our path, no matter how big or small they may be, should always be recognized and acknowledged for they stand at the precipice of the world we live in, a guidepost at the proverbial fork in the road. In doing so, you become the living incarnation of synchronicity, the language of life itself, and serendipity, the benchmark of inspiration. No, I am not sugarcoating the scenario being described here. In truth, as the phrase goes, life is a bitch and then you die. The path you follow, loaded to the hilt as it is with dramas, disasters and dumbasses galore, will never be an easy one to travel. Yes, you definitely become awakened to this amazing shitshow known as the matrix, including why you exist in the first place, why you are here at all, and why you even bothered coming back for another round of happy horseshit in the daily geopolitical and socioeconomic grind known as the rat race. However, putting all of that aside, one thing cannot be ignored. Ultimately, by jumping into the abyss, you transform yourself into who you were always meant to be and, more importantly, who you always had been all along. ”

Excerpt from the manuscript:

“Looking back in hindsight, it comes as no surprise that the Nineties also gave us something altogether different, the crème de la crème à la Edgar, as The Aristocats might say. Coming out of left field, it was known as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993–1999), the cipher in the Invisible College’s codex. Okay, how did this come about? Seriously folks, it’s a valid question in more ways than one. We have a dark-skinned captain, a gender-bending symbiote, a shape-shifting constable, a genetically enhanced doctor, an honorable warrior banished by his own people and a greedy racketeer with a conscience. In all sincerity, where did this come from? We can’t just blame it on left field. It has an origin story. Yes, that origin story, the original channeled Council of Nine sessions of the Sixties.”
