Our Genesis and Revelation

The biblical tale of Adam (Mankind) and Eve (Human Life) is the classical universal tale of the historically flawed life of humanity, of Homo Sapiens and how, through repentant admission and confession of that innate malady, mankind, while experiencing progress in an increasingly advanced technological civilization, can find salvation, can yet receive grace, become individuated, and return to wholeness and unity by the act of being our brothers’ keepers.  This important first small step for modern terrestrial man would yield a giant step for future Milky Way universal man aiming to explore the cosmos in a collaborative act of unity.

About this poem

How the Holy Bible is an exposé of the nature of humankind; and how it provides a prophetic forecast of mankind’s technological proclivities and aspirations.
