The Sun Sets in the West #4

December 26, 2018

Before I delve into the heart of this series, I need to make one more preface-type statement.

My point of view is highly unorthodox—well-outside the mainstream. If my book Street Song was already in print, it would be much easier to explain how I arrived at my positions. Some are from direct experience, some from half-understood experiences that were given greater clarity by others whose books I’ve read and trust, and some purely from books I’ve read by these same trustworthy people. I’ve been going through these ideas for decades, over and over again. I’m not making any wild suppositions based on their current appeal to me. A lot of people mistrust non-mainstream views because it’s widely assumed that Western science and philosophy have pretty much figured out the basics at this point. I don’t think so. I think Western science and philosophy have made some fundamental errors in the building of their foundations and those errors have hidden many of the deeper realities. I’ll go into what I think those errors are in my posts.

Next up: the nature of evil.
