Caduceus, a new book, identifies the initial, common and unifying element of our religious and spiritual movements. It is a unique spiritual text for a new era. Unique in character as Hamilton bases this text on fact and best evidence from a variety of sources which transcends the globe and its religions. After posing difficult questions to the ‘scientific fraternity’ Caduceus opens the mind with anomalies in ancient histories and thereafter reveals details of a specific and profound subjective experience. This ‘illuminating’ experience is evidenced in many ancient spiritual and religious texts and several philosophical works. Indeed it has been experienced, spoken or written of by some of the greatest minds in history such as Plato, Nietzsche, Jung and by many others but moreover by the initiators of our religious and spiritual movements.
With this preponderance of evidence, how has this experience remained unacknowledged by so many and for as long ?
Hamilton cites this very specific experience as being at the emergence of our religions, at the very foundations of our spiritual thought and therefore the codes by which we live today. It has pervaded our lives and our existence yet we know little of this experience and of the global unifying potential it affords. Furthermore evidence is provided pertaining to the remarkable and perplexing parallels of this experience to that of the ‘near-death experience’.
What does this all mean? ... You let the evidence decide.
It is amazing how far we have come from the time of those great "thinkers". Now we have become lightseekers. We have become more spiritual than dogmatic. This is very refreshing to me as I was a philosophy major in college. Spirituality and Dogma in my opinion does not go hand in hand. In spirituality we are infiinate and omnipresent with everyone that surrounds us. And therefore are one with each other. I feel that urgency in the air----COHESIVENESS. It sounds like an interesting read.
