My perception is that prayer is not a religious thing, but
that it is love. Human existence is the composite of many factors, including environmental factors that affect the density of cosmic radiation that appears to have a positive effect on neurological development. This may be the reason why the dawn of humanity coincides with the dawn of the modern Ice Age epoch, the Pleistocene Epoch. We are literally the children of the Ice Age. Of course we also need food, warmth, shelter, and so on. But there exists still another factor that we need to have just as critically. This factor is love. Love appears to be the factor that causes healing, or more correctly, causes the harmonious functioning of individuals and civilization. It appears that love creates a 'field of good' that affects everything, from our biological systems, to social, political, and economic systems. When the field of love is diminishing, we suddenly find ourselves evermore in need of healing. And this is experienced on a wide front of concerns, including the front of escalating evils.
A dialog with an audience
begins here, in the form of a speech during a hypothetical peace conference in Moscow near the end of the Soviet era, coincident with the Thousand-Year Anniversary of the Christianization of Russia. Russia
had celebrated its roots in Byzantine orthodox ideology that originated in Rome and was designed to subjugate society to imperial rule, which the Soviet system had continued with its own brand of vertical domination. Would the Soviet Union have changed if this background had been more fully considered? Indeed, would society today, change universally for the same reason, considering that many aspects of modern ideology, politically, culturally, and spiritually, are still reflecting the old long-hidden historic root that Rome had pioneered?
These are questions of critical importance in today's world as we face a New Ice Age on the near horizon that is largely unrecognized or denied to even exist as this so often happens with advanced concepts. Still, the Ice Age Challenge needs to be met and be mastered. The Byzantine speech explores the barriers that stand in the way, especially the perversion of religion in the service of empire.
When love is diminishing, empires develop, and the developing empires steal from society, destroy its productive capacity, and foster wars for extermination. All wars in modern history have been instigated for the purpose of extermination. And since even the big wars were deemed inefficient for mass-extermination, as Bertrand Russell of the oligarchic system had lamented in the 1950s, more efficient means for extermination have since been called for.
My entire 12-volume series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose, is dedicated to this all-critical 'prayer' - the development of the Principle of Universal Love in human living. For this reason, my series of novels may be the most critical series in literature at the present time. On this
platform we do have a chance to achieve the needed healing of humanity of
its oligarchic disease, named empire that demands the mass-extermination of mankind, and
would prevent the meeting of the Ice Age Challenge.
