Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Despite all appearances to the contrary, the human race has made little internal progress in two thousand years. Cunning has replaced spirituality; advances in technology conceal the fact that we are merely intelligent animals. The glitter, sparkle, and velocity of our modern life, and the continuous hum of news, advertising, television, and film keep us occupied and asleep, and conceal the harsh reality that true free will, creativity, and self-direction are mere illusions. Without quite knowing why, we experience an anxiety, inner pain, disorientation, and alienation, the escape from which becomes the hidden guiding force of our lives.

Humanity has been converted into a race of automatons, under the influence of a cerebral and cultural hypnosis that is nearly impossible to perceive, but which controls every aspect of our internal and external life. From cradle to grave, we struggle, enjoy, fight, love, hate, suffer, play, worry, get educated, think, work, marry, procreate, grow old, and die without ever being aware of this hypnotic condition which is part of a cerebral program from which we cannot deviate for any reason, even if we try to do so.

This book is about freedom from the slavery that afflicts the entire human race. It presents the reader with the possibility of knowing the unvarnished truth of life, and lays out the path to true happiness, self-development, and transcendence through the ancient wisdom of Hermetic Philosophy.

About the Author

John Baines (literary pseudonym of Dario Salas Sommer), is the contemporary philosopher, founder and director of the Institute for Hermetic Philosophy in Santiago, Chile, with branches worldwide, including a branch in New York. He has designed his philosophy as a study in the Hermetic Sciences, here defined as "the wise use of Nature's laws" of principles that date back to Hermes Trismegistus.
