This psychological novel, written by Mario E. Martinez, introduces the reader to a harmonious convergence of cognitive science and mystical theology. The style is reminiscent of “The Da Vinci Code” and “Shadow of the Wind”. The book is full of codes to be unraveled while you incidentally learn about mind-body science within a plot that explains the mysterious Christ-like wounds manifested in stigmatics. Some of the characters are so engaging that, at times, they entice you to take them home as new-found friends. The book is quite popular in Ireland and beginning to gain popularity in the US.
It sounds like a great idea, I’ve blended a lot of those old theology-type things into cognitive explorations too. It’s sort of like, perhaps the roots of philosophy were originally founded in ancient theologies, people trying to interpret them and so forth? The theologies are like primitive expressions of philosophical feelings being born in the subconscious or something, we needed to give words and form toit, but did not know how, so we literalized our subconscious metaphors.
In interpreting them, we come to rational discussions of human principles, and eventually it becomes so complex as our analytical abilities increased, that it could stand on it’s own right. In many cases that discoure can even take the place of theology in people’s evaluations of life’s meanings.
