UNIVERSE IN DISENCHANTMENT
We find the Book “Universe in Disenchantment” notable by the revelations it makes about the crucial problems of the human existence. The reading from the first pages on, might not call the reader´s attention, distracted and endowed with his scientific formation. This is justifiable, for the Book aims at the humanity and not the men of sciences in a particular way. However, if the reading is done in a reflexive way, everything will change and the involving truths that emanate from its pages in the end will prevail.
The book shelters only truths and teaches their use in the benefit of human being´s Redemption. The wording is specific, strong sometimes, deprived of semantics, attributing new meaning to words, creating others; resorts to elementary processes and images. It separates itself from the official canons of science and philosophy, but communicates the substantial knowledge, attaining thus the aim.
The learned person must not loose of sight that the language is a logical and formal structure, constructed to communicate the thought and the Reasoning and that a theory can be exposed, making use of several languages (language and not idiom, one must make the distinction between the two categories). The choice of one language is a question of comfort only. The Book made its option.
The language used in the Book “Universe in Disenchantment” is, what appears to us, the most indicated, by its lightness and by its power to communicate irrespective of its readers.
The book is a cosmogony work, in the ample and metaphysic sense of the concept, where it is introduced and explained the Universe conception; its origin and its ending starting from a supreme reality of a meta-universe that is denominated RATIONAL WORLD. This reality is given to us as a revelation coming from the powers that transcend the human powers. It associates intuition to reason; it is intuitive but does not contradict the norms of the reason; it is the fusion of the origin of the cause and of the effect, as an initial reality, for there is no effect without cause.
There we find, duly clarified, the mystery of life. Life is as a tissue that bonds the Rational beings that we are to the Cosmo. Such Cosmo that presents itself as the anti-world of the Meta Universe, the initial reality. The Book reveals that this life keeps us out of our true habitat, which is the RATIONAL WORLD. And goes on explaining that our fall from that paradise happened due to the beings that lived there in the Super RATIONAL WORLD being free, as it is required by the condition of perfectly happy beings. They could use their free will and opt for either the Great World or the anti-world. They, ourselves, who opted for the second choice, are here now and fight the battle of our lives: who is born must die.
But death does not mean annihilation, says the Book. Death is just a singular point in our trajectory through life. Our bonding referential will never disappear; it is there in the RATIONAL WORLD. It is up to us to realize that situation and the Book provides it. It takes only reading it attentively and persistently to ascertain.
The cultivation of the sciences and the arts are manifestations of that sentiment. They translate the obstinate effort of the search for the definitive equilibrium, for the happiness, in short, the obstinacy that characterizes human being. That happiness will come with the return to the departing base, the Meta Universe, the RATIONAL WORLD.
The Book shows, in its peculiar linguistic form, sometimes with poetic beauty, that we are living the century of our Redemption. The development of the contemporary science and scientific philosophy, the destruction of the pure mysticism, the total discredit that hovers over the old table of values, humanity´s irreducible anguish, the youth´s generalized disbelief in the order so far instituted, that makes it look for new roads; all that prepared and matured humanity for meeting with itself again. That Book, great in the content and simple in the form, shows us that the new meeting will happen in the learning and knowing what RATIONAL CULTURE is, which is the culture of the perfect Meta Universe from where we came.
How will humanity be able to enter the Rational Road that will take us to the last destiny? The answer is provided in the Book “Universe in Disenchantment” and it is as simple as the great virtues are.
Reading and rereading that Book, the truth´s code, so as to create a conscious state denominated in the Book, RATIONAL IMMUNIZATION state. In that state the human being starts to make direct contact with the RATIONAL WORLD´s inhabitants through dialogues and then his equilibrium will be established, meaning that death will open the door to him to attain the Eternal Redemption. To die in this state, is to lose the individuality and to enter the universal life, the eternity, mentioned by the great British biologist, Haldane.
The Book also teaches us that in the world we live, there is material progress but the creative evolution, much different from the simple progress, is a natural endowment of the perfect Meta universe of our origin. Here is the kingdom of contradiction and injustice, characteristics of the world in deformation and decomposition progress. This world is work of men and shall disappear with them. Man is master of his destiny and the supreme entities interfere in the anti-world life, which is under the ruling of men.
The study and the knowledge of this world that we live, allow us to isolate the constants of the Meta-universe, which existence is certain, so as to qualify us to understand it more and more. We come, then, to have a clear consciousness of our position in face of the Cosmo and of life.
Instead of explaining the Universe from the existence of a creating agent, the Book reveals the existence of the created object, the Meta-universe with all its complexity. This position is, as it could not be otherwise, the right position of the man of science.
One has thus, a supreme principle postulated, unique so to speak. From there on the inferential processes of the reason, allied to the intuition, permit us to build an image of the great reality that is revealed to us in the Book. That is also Russell’s position: start from the created object and not from the creator.
That Superior Universe knowledge, where we came from and to where we are going to return, is enough to satisfy the human desire for an explanation of the mysteries of life.
The works of the modern logic, where a Kurt Gödel, the greatest of the logics alive outstands, and a Polo Cohen, who solved recently the famous problem known in the philosophy domain of the mathematics as the Hypothesis of the Continuous, allows us to say that the question:”Who created that Meta Universe?” Is deprived of sense and cannot be correctly formulated by humanity but defined from beginning to end by the RATIONAL SUPERIOR, a Superior Being of the SUPER RATIONAL WORLD.
The deep stream of philosophical cosmological thought, coming from the Greek rationalists, Thales and Anaximander, the former the greatest thinker of his time (611 to 545 BC) passing by Plato and ending in Bergson´s intuitionist cosmogony, has its substantial elements represented in this singular Book.
That, together with the fact that the Book was born in Rio de Janeiro, written by a man of Cosmic Culture, redacted in modest language, without scientific pretensions, makes us convict that this man is an enlightened one, and the Book, the Source of the Truth, is of Superior Origin.
The Book makes a point to emphasize: its contents are not science, philosophy, or religion, but a natural knowledge, meaning intrinsic to the one.
The Redemption in popular language, leaves intact the deep substance of the truths that it announces, which are at the prompt reach of the living creatures that must encourage themselves to read this great Book in their own benefit, for its importance for the future of humanity is actual and decisive.
