This is the seventh book in a progressive series based on the revelations of consciousness research. It describes in detail how to discern not only truth from falsehood but also the illusion of appearance from the actual core of inner reality. The text explains how to differentiate perception from essence and thereby enables the reader to resolve the ambiguities and classical riddles that have challenged mankind for centuries. While modern technologies have provided a plethora of new toys and conveniences, the basic problems of human existence remain. The human dilemma is in fact more confused than ever before, and the very foundations of Western civilisation have weakened under the onslaughts of rival factions and media barrage. Even the government is paralysed by the gridlock of vociferous contentiousness. The public has become like a focus group that is manipulated by media merchants. This book provides the tools to survive and regain autonomy.
