This seminal book introduces the unified relationships theory, called panosophy, the complete unification of science, philosophy, and religion.
It is therefore not easy to position this book within the existing cultural landscape. For the categorizing mind likes to put everything into boxes. So it has great difficulty to deal with a transcultural, transdisciplinary book that defies categorization.
To help you position this book in your historical scheme of things, from a scientific perspective, The Paragonian Manifesto is the final term in the series of cosmologies introduced by Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and David Bohm. For the Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, the special and general theories of relativity, and Wholeness and the Implicate Order, which unified relativity and quantum theories, each unified a pair of opposites, bringing science ever closer to the fundamental design principle of the Universe: Wholeness is the union of all opposites.
From a religious perspective, this epoch-making book completes the process of freeing Western religion of its anthropocentric orientation begun with the Book of Revolutions by Nicolaus Copernicus and Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species.
Looking at its mystical forebears, The Paragonian Manifesto is closest to the teachings of Advaita and Zen Buddhism, and in modern times to such teachers as J. Krishnamurti and Osho. But it is important to remember that panosophy embraces the teachings of all the mystics, no matter what semantic framework they use to describe their experiences.
Economically, this apocalyptic book outlines the fundamental principles of the Sharing Economy, just as Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations and The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels laid down the basic principles of capitalism and communism, respectively.
From an evolutionary perspective, The Paragonian Manifesto can be seen as the fulfilment of prophecies made by Richard Maurice Bucke in Cosmic Consciousness, by Jan Christiaan Smuts in Holism and Evolution, and by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in The Phenomenon of Man.
However, it is only possible to understand how these prophecies are fulfilled when we consciously reach the Omega point of evolution. It is therefore likely that this book will appeal more to the younger generation, for it is the youth of the world who are destined to be carried by evolution to its glorious culmination at the end of time. As Max Planck sadly remarked in his autobiography, “a new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”
