In the 4th Millennium B.C., a little-known group of people called the Sumerians would effectively propel the human race to a higher intellectual status unseen since the invention of the wheel—the discovery of cuneiform—an ancient text that uses symbols for words.
“Sumerian philosophers developed a doctrine which became dogma throughout the Near East—the doctrine of the creative power of the divine word. All that the creating deity needed to do, according to this doctrine, was to lay his plans, utter the word, and pronounce the name.”
The science of the written word and its enormous effects on humanity has forever been linked together, yet ultimately shrouded by greed, political ambitions, and cultural imbalances.
Mr. Cohen sets out on a dynamic and ever-important mission to dismantle the institutional and religious crutches of man and to dispel the many myths and legends that have both intentionally and unintentionally become associated with them.
With the introduction of different forms of writing, the natural selection process of a self-appointed class of humanity would arise and assume a variety of names; seers, poets, philosophers, mystics, prophets, and intellectuals alike—all would become powerful men and women with a quill in their hands.
“Max Cohen illustrates the necessity of his revelatory thinking as he plods through some of the murkiest of theological and institutional waters in existence today,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Mr. Cohen sets in motion an intriguing question: are we nearing the end of delusional history and preparing the way for a supreme cosmic truth?”
The author grew up in an era of change fueled by a formidable cast of characters from the sardonic wit and humor of W.C. Fields to the flair and panache of Mae West—it was a time of great originality and independence. During WW II the author logged over three-hundred hours as a crewman and air/sea rescue airman aboard Dive Bombers and J2F6 amphibians. After the war, the author worked as a delivery driver, draftsman, piano tuner, and inventor. It was then, that Mr. Cohen would pick up the pen and perform the work he had prepared a lifetime to do—write!
