Dear friends, acquaintances, family, and associates,
The exciting changes happening in this country are the beginning of a much larger transformation, a harbinger of the next step in human development: conscious evolution. It is as big a leap as the two previous major evolutionary steps: standing erect and developing symbolic forms (language, music, mathematics, etc.).
Somewhere during the past eleven and a half years we undoubtedly had a conversation along these lines, in which I mentioned the book I was writing. Some of you have even asked me on more than one occasion when the book would be available.
I’m happy to report that the day has finally come!
My motivation for writing this book is simple: Humanity is at its crossroads; we either evolve, which includes the creation of a sustainable, spiritually and scientifically supportive environment, or face the prospect of a painful future on a barren planet. On these points there is little argument, except from those who have been blinded by ego, instinct, and greed.
There have been plenty of words written on this general subject and on a variety of related issues. Having read more than my share of these accounts, I can assure you that there’s nothing out there that even remotely compares with what you’ll find in “Solomon’s Proof: A Psycho-Spiritual Journey to World Consciousness.”
I’d like to recap as succinctly as possible what this book is about.
To begin with, the book is based on www.SolomonsProof.com, which I posted two years ago and have continued to update. The proof is a combination of what physicists call “The Final Theory,” what alchemists call “The Philosopher’s Stone,” and what philosophers call “The Perennial Philosophy.” In other words, the proof integrates the origins and fate of the universe with human consciousness and evolution.
Given the longstanding history of such a quest, the claim that it has been solved by someone who you know may sound preposterous, but until its disproven, we’re assuming that we’ve solved the riddle. The proof is based on a model of light that I’ve been working on since I was in high school.
Necessarily, the language of the proof is complex and not everyone will be able to understand its logical progression; so, to provide a more accessible alternative, the book is written as a novel. There is also a film in the works that will use animation to further simplify and, hopefully, popularize the material.
The description of the book on the back cover reads:
“In Solomon's Proof, author Rashan Barcusé chronicles the life and teachings Michael Solomon, a brilliant former Stanford anti-war activist now Rocky Mountain yoga teacher, who claims to be the one prophesized by all religions--and says he can prove it. Indeed, he offers a scientific proof for his assertions at www.SolomonsProof.com, which encompasses the convergence of science and spirituality, proof of the Big Bang and String theories, the appearance of the World Teacher, the unity of all religions, and the next step in human evolution.
“From a serendipitous meeting in a Boulder, Colorado, bookstore 33 years ago to 9-11 and beyond, Barcusé chronicles his relationship with the sometimes outrageous but always compelling Avatar, whose favorite subjects range from the distortions of the New Testament to the similarities of theoretical physics and spiritual teachings, and from the politics of the theatre to the theatre of political action. In addition, Solomon draws a parallel between the two greatest literary thefts in history, those of Jesus and "Shake-speare," which are reconciled in a dream by Barcusé in the form of a full-length Shakespearean comedy, The Bard's Ghost (included as an appendix).
“From Nikos Kazantzakis' The Last Temptation of Christ to Norman Mailer's The Gospel According to the Son and from Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land to Richard Bach’s Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah a host of modern writers have explored the possibilities of an Avatar’s life and thoughts outside of the selective composite document called the New Testament. Is Barcusé dancing with the devil or present at the birth of an historical turning point?”
Order information: I’m selling the book at retail on http://shop.SolomonsProof.com to generate momentum for a film trailer to be posted on YouTube and elsewhere. Eventually, this will lead to the full-length film noted above. If you want to buy the book for less, www.barnesandnoble.com has updated it’s listing and is offering discounts and www.amazon.com should be updating their information soon.
If you purchase the book and enjoy reading it, be sure to tell your friends about it. If you have a favorite bookstore, tell them they can order copies of the book through Ingram, the largest book distributor in the U.S. The ISBN number is: 978-0-615-18537-8. If you know a book reviewer, suggest that they email me for a complimentary review copy.
