At the time I read the first two books, the third had yet to be written. Rereading the first two books, it was as if I had not read them at any time prior. Perhaps this trilogy is best read repeatedly as one gains a deeper awareness of oneself and the grand illusion in which what we call life takes place.
Sifting through the ideas in the trilogy, one reaches the conclusion that the course of personal and human events can turn on a dime. Of course! When? Well, now, of course, as now is when anything and everything changes. Read the book and find out for yourself. The words here are my own creationhallucinationmyth. Form your own.
Harris and Doe give flesh and blood to this theme. While Adam dreams, the main characters, Andrew and Mara, carry the godseed that can bring forth a new Being equal to or even greater than its Creator. "They shall be as gods, for that is their design. The dormant gene shall emerge."
Andrew, a professor, is on a quest: "To discover the unified secret, both lost and perhaps conspiratorially hidden, that lay behind man's spiritual existence. If he could close the circle, science and religion would once again merge."
"While physicists were exploring a more real world theory of a unified universe, Andrew felt that such a hypothesis would never truly answer all of life's greatest questions. Intuitively, he knew that quarks, neutrinos, packets of photons, vibrating strings of energy, dark matter were but half of the "grand equation. ...What was different, [Andrew] often queried, between the transcendental notion that an event in one part of the universe rippled throughout all of reality, and the current quantum string theory?"
In the search for "the unified secret," all the cards in the deck are reshuffled. What has been promulgated as "good" is revealed to be an attempt to prevent human beings from waking from the dream-state and discovering their true potential. Many of the traditions, organizations and symbols of Christian and other religions are explored in this new light, showing how they have been used to manipulate the search for knowledge. Those who seek understanding have been engaged in an epic battle since ancient times to break through the veil.
What gives human beings hope that they will someday wake from the dream-state is the "force of consciousness." This is as close to the universal energy field as we can currently imagine. In our quest to fully develop our potential, at some point, we will reach a level where transformation to a higher form takes place. In a sense our current condition is a dream state; we are not truly awake to what we are becoming, or could become.
Waking God tells a harrowing story of courage, one that we all need to hear.
Food for thought: what if we are all just living in a game or a dream and when we die we really wake up to the world we were meant to live in. What we are doing here is a stasis of reality. If this leaves you wanting more READ THIS TRILOGY! Be prepared to question EVERYTHING!
The sheer knowledge required to assemble this book intimidated me because I'm usually a chic-lit kind of girl, but I was able to follow the story more easily than I originally anticipated. If the first few pages throw you, stick with it. Andrew collates an enormous amount of information, but luckily it is doled out in easily digestible chunks. And ready your highlighter because there are memorable quotes sprinkled throughout the chapters. My favorite is, "The only thing one can be saved from is ignorance."
My biggest criticism is that the book terminates in the middle of the action. Thank God (or perhaps Mantrella) that I bought the entire series as a package deal.
