308 pages cover folly of man and it has come in so many shapes and forms. Divine Right of kings in practice finished off the kings except for a few. Then we had the Age of Enlightenment. All men are brothers, so it would have us believe. But are they? Reading this book shall give for those who think, a fighting chance to know the humbug nations dish out for public consumption.

New Millennium: in Praise of Folly explains how we separated from our ape cousins before our brains were adequate to know our left from right hand. Since then consumables and war have consumed so much of man’s energy and the book gives the reader an unvarnished look into his world.

What can you expect from civilization when man has no idea what it is to be civil? You saw it recently in Minneapolis when Derek Chauvin had his knee on George Floyd for some nine minutes.  Systematic use of racists in the police to restore law and order so ethnic cleansing by other means is worked into nation’s Constitution must eat into its own vitals. What civilization are we in the West talking about?

For those who are interested the book is available through Amazon.com paperback or on kindle.

I have published New Millennium: in praise of folly and is available through Amazon.com. Both paperback and as e book in kindle format shall be available.

It is sum total of my life experience and ideas are original and supported by facts.

Let me explain what it is all about.

The present work explores man and his world in the new millennium. Man being a social animal what made him separate from his ape cousins? Bipedalism or was it sheer ignorance of the perils he faced in an uncharted territory as savannah? Having come this far, what the author has collated his findings, which like the proverbial curate’s egg are wonderful in parts and bad in other. Tool making capacity of man for instance made the earth a global village. Is it not wonderful?

The Age of Internet is where social media platforms are competing to disseminate news. Fake news however has come like worm in the apple of his ingenuity. Information overload is not as bad as conspiracy theories that travel faster than his ability to digest them. What worth are news that do not add up as machines that fail? Airplanes shrunk the earth, but two fatal crashes one after the other does throw up a serious identity crisis: image problem of Boeing or Facebook is nothing comparable. Foresight of man and his hindsight do not match. He ushered the nuclear age and his excuse was to stop a global war. Now the world is sure to end in a nuclear holocaust or end up as a planet plastic.

The Book of Genesis is literally a book of beginnings. The intent of the author is to explain the narrative mode of the Holy Spirit so stories like the parables of Jesus work at many levels. Think of the Book of Genesis as a snapshot of the whole: we see Adam, Noah and the Patriarchs seated in the front row representing God’s promise to Abraham: “In thee shall at the families of the earth be blessed (Ge.12:3). In the back row what we see are multitudes, as fulfilled. Jesus, who as the light of the world gives it clarity. Consequently when the Spirit discusses the patriarchs, focus is on the nation of Israel but other nations serve as a foil to it. For instance God places Joseph in Egypt so the nation of Israel could be helped in time of a great famine. Similarly at the birth of Jesus God secures a safe hiding place there for the Holy Family. God’s Will sees all as part of his promise and in Time: time in which Joseph and Jesus were placed varies by more than a millennia. Yet these are all set in one timescale that is God’s Time. It has a bearing on us. In accepting Jesus Christ as the Saviour we have been inducted into the picture. Adoption (Ep.1:5) means transcending time and place that limit our earthly lives for heavenly places.

Symbols

Symbols are the means adopted by the Spirit to reconcile variable time scales in the Bible. Both Time and earth time of man must reconcile. Whosoever believes in the death and resurrection of the Son is of an altogether different time scale. So the Spirit has taken both narratives from the Father-Son relationship and held as one by means of symbols.

So what do we mean by a symbol? An easily recognizable object or thing is lifted from its natural context to underpin nature of God or man. Thus to indicate long suffering nature and goodness of God the Spirit uses rain as a symbol. By same token when God withholds rain it manifests divine disfavor. Lamb is another. When Jesus exhorts his followers to be perfect he speaks how He makes the sun rise on the good and evil alike. Grass and lilies of the field are also examples. In short each material object holds an ancillary spiritual significance. Manna is a symbol for bread from heaven and also specifically refers to the body of Christ Jesus broken for our salvation.

Let us consider our own body with that of the Son of man. It is the image of the earthy. In the Common Prayer when we recite ‘ashes to ashes and dust to dust’ during the funeral service we are recalling the natural end of our body. Before Jesus Christ would taste death for everyone in his body God had prepared one for him. It existed in the Will before the foundations of the world began. It was but a symbol, indicating the eternal aspect of his Will. The Lamb slain was the emblem as the brazen serpent in the wilderness foreshadowing the vicarious death of God the Son. The body with which the Son of man came to the world was natural that we read that he experienced hunger and thirst as every other. God had willed God the Son would perfect his Will in his body but the symbol would never alter. It is a symbol applying to us and for eternity. Therein we trace what God had determined concerning us through the Son (Ro.8:29)”.

 

For ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God (Col.3:3). This is how we consider our body as having died to the world and its corruption. The body shall die once but on a symbolic plane it shall continue as ever because it is hid with Christ in God. In order to make a distinction between the two we shall consider the body of our spiritual life that oversees our newness of life is our inner man.

“Truth is the last frontier that is left for science to reach; but what is it?”

 

Science has answered great many but Truth in absolute sense remains still elusive. It is not for want of trying.  Even though scientists have managed to quantify how much dark matter lurks in distant galaxies, astronomers have been hard-pressed to figure out how much of the mysterious stuff lies within our own. Measuring anything is hard when you’re inside of it,” As the Astrophysicist James Bullock said, “It’s kind of like trying to figure out what kind of house you live in without ever leaving your house.”

Is man really keen to know the truth?

“Truth sounds good but money in pocket is better,” seems to me how man with his attention-deficit set progress on the move. We live in the Anthropocene Age: our blue planet as a result has become a plastic planet. Global warming and devastating  hurricanes hitting one after the other reveal the planet earth in distress. Yet do we face the truth of our own mismanagement? As to our belief systems the  less said is the better. What we need ask is : how big is mind and to what it is fixed?  Now You Know: mind and matter continues what science can do and what it cannot. Aim of the author is to present before the reader a fair idea of the Big Picture in 364 entries.

Now You Know: man and nature  is also available.

My second volume is available through Amazon.
