For those who may have missed it - The Enlightenment
« on: December 21, 2015, 09:21:06 PM »
This is a short book that explains so much.  It's an easy read.  The title says Part 0, but there was never a Part 1 or Part 2.

this really is an erudite, concise descreption of some very dense subject matter. the author self published one thousand copies and that was it, only one known copy in the world, i wonder just who the author was

I pondered the same thing for quite some time but to avail.

There was a used copy of the book on Amazon selling for 5k but has recently been put on clearance for $4,000, lol

Outstanding read. I have shared it with a few that I wasn't sure would appreciate it- they loved it!

I only read half of this book but it seemed to me it is just one of those "everything is an illusion, you can do anything" books.

I did not fancy it much, honestly.

It lacks...natural law. The HOW part. In a conctrete way.

I might be wrong, though.

the how is certainty in the knowledge that all is illusion, and thus can be altered
