Praise for Jacob Needleman
“His lively prose, storytelling skills, and lucid insights draw us into an animated conversation with a brilliant teacher.”
“Striking … takes some really original positions on topics that have become run into the ground by the same discussions and same assumptions.”
“An immensely learned man who is unembarrassed by the big questions that many of his fellow philosophers prefer to dodge.”
“For nearly four decades Jacob Needleman has confronted the central questions of our era in light of the vision that lies at the root of the world’s great spiritual traditions. Needleman’s work clarifies: it takes topics that exist in disparate threads throughout our culture—new religions, esoteric Christianity, the founding mythos of America—and frames them in a manner both sensible and deeply questioning.”

He has previously explored the notion of defeating time by communicating with one's younger self but in this short play he dramatizes it in ways that I found evocative of deep feeling and profundity.
How to present "transcendent" material? Jacob's readers will know the source of much of what is brought here but it is presented with Jacob's unique daring and exquisite ability with language.
I particularly found the conclusion in which he wraps things up particularly helpful.in pointing beyond the intellectual mind to those realms that are almost impossible to describe in words.
As I was reading I had an inner sense of what Ouspensky may have meant by recurrence and perhaps even what Gurdjieff was attempting to suggest to his students.
