  1. Thanks very much for highlighting this, a significantl idea. I have much to say, but I will try to be brief. I am 70 years old, have read many books and I am still an avid reader.

    The culture is now infused with propaganda, lies 24/7, and they encompass public and “higher” education. Over my lifetime, the moral influence of Christianity has been replaced by a secular, Darwinian view of humanity and society, which has led us into nihilism, that holds everything is cold, dead matter and existence is senseless and useless. The culture is very sick.

    As an aside, I am pro-Christian but non-Christian. I do not promote it and it is the theology and morality, and not the institution or the dogma that I refer to.

    I believe it is important we understand that consciousness came first, that we are souls, not that we have them. They/We are not just things. This is an understanding of the universe in the exact opposite direction from Materialist nihilism. And it is is truth. If we do not understand who and what we are, if we do not first have some understanding of God, we can learn nothing that is worthwhile or fulfilling. As a further aside, I do not refer to any particular denominational God. All religions worship the same God.

    I would recommend 2 books. First, Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander. This book is now just becoming popular. It “proves” we are souls, telling a very readable, fascinating story. Eben Alexander is a neurosurgeon who had an extensive near-death experience. Second, I would recommend Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul, “written” in the early 1970s by Jane Roberts. I consider this to be the most important book I have ever read. It has literally changed my life. For the better.

    We must first understand who and what we are. Then we can begin to learn. For what it’s worth …
