About the Author
"All Humanity suffers. Humanity may be referred to as the suffering species. Psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health experts are not able to help people in the sense of freeing them from the root of their psychological disturbances. Why is this so? Because these people are the very instruments, products, and architects of the cultural-social conditioning referred to as society, culture, civilization, country, nation, and the state. All suffering is caused by the madness of society which is imposed on the individual. The previous referred to experts, along with our educators and purveyors of religion, consciously or unconsciously, have allowed themselves to be used to enslave all who come under their influence. The author of this book has been a psychologist, educator, and trainee for the Roman Catholic priesthood. He has learned the inside dope so to speak. How has this come about? It has arisen as a result of deep, personal suffering. It is not being suggested that this suffering is unique, but it is the only suffering that the writer could have experienced or could begin to understand. This suffering has been the occasion for discovering how humankind has endangered the earth as a living organism, and how human beings have been programmed to cause their own suffering and the suffering of the human species through their insane attempts to solve their self-constructed problems, while at the same time fleeing from knowledge of the self. This book contains the uncensored story of my life, from the earliest memories of childhood to the present. - From The Book

As I read about the programming of my neurological-mind-body-system, and how it works, how the notion of a separate self, a 'me' or an 'I' is nothing but conditioning language, described in greater detail than I have yet to encounter anywhere else, it is then unavoidable to not see my programming drop away revealing what has always been there, the Great Mystery or the Tao No-Thing, as Signposter calls it.
You are in for the ride of your life, into the ineffable 'radical apprehension' of your True Nature.
Most people think misery is like gravity. Eternal and spread throughout the universe. But it isn't. People have been cowered in the face of living in a rusty machine. Taught to love their bondage, bound in shallows and miseries, people are reduced to units and weights.
What's rusty is the body, which is the machine. The highest teaching is that you are not the body! You are free already.
The ideas in here are full of character, are rich in vivid colours, sumptuous magnificence and exotic splendour.
