How odd that a modern mathematician would style himself as an advocate of Paleolithic religion! Yet in these pages, the reader finds Abraham--a pioneer in the development of chaos theory--espousing religious and cultural perspectives long buried in oblivion. Although repressed for 6,000 years, the Orphic tradition of ancient goddess worship may live again for those able to pierce the patriarchal deceits of order and control. The daring will enter into the blessed mysteries of pagan antiquity. Unabashedly utopian, the author interprets current intellectual ferment surrounding chaos theory, the Gaia hypothesis, and aerodynamics as an auspicious sign. If humankind can recognize this world-historical moment, the true Trinity--Chaos, Gaia, and Eros--will once again cover the earth with peace and harmony. The bibliography lists dozens of books in mythology, archaeology, and hermeneutics, but no source provides nearly as much as the author's own potent imagination. Bryce Christensen
