9780911385366: Lucifer Dreaming

George Walker is an unemployed astronomer, oblivious to himself, others, and his environment, living in his own ideas. Slowly, he acquires awareness. He indulges his selfish wants, at the expense of others. With little understanding and little power, he starts to change. He can swim faster and heal faster. He can become like animals in some ways. He starts to believe that he is more than human, but then he is humbled by those who are more practiced at violence. He reads about the Archangel Lucifer and fantasizes that he might be a reincarnation. He gleefully speaks and does evil things, returning violence for violence. However, as he understands more of the Lucifer story, he develops characteristics and emotions that do not seem to be evil. Gradually he understands the suffering and joy of others and becomes more compassionate. He questions whether he has reached the end of madness or merely a deeper evil, the expression of the essential Lucifer. He learns the value of humor, the joy of living, playing and dancing. But, he cannot stop being violent, and he cannot ignore the effects of violence on things he has come to love. He chooses voluntary exile, for a while.

Book Description Mozart & Reason Wolfe, Limited. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 331 pages. Like D. H. Lawrences novels, this novel is symbolic and moral. It offers a little teaching, as well as a little entertainment. The author is not trying to shock or convert, but, like all good preachers, to save. We have deep-seated human problems, of image, of consumption, of exploitation, and of destruction. The world is unhealthyit is wobbling and falling apart. How can one really write about it without lamentation and sorrow As a sermon rather than a paean As a fictional story rather than a lectureThe protagonist, George Walker, is an astronomer, solitary in his profession and empty as the space between stars. He is trapped on one level of the American dream (similar to Dantes Hell). When his world disintegrates around himhe loses his job, house, and possessionshe goes on vacation. Desperate when his money runs out, he resorts to stealing, with unfortunate consequences: imprisonment and humiliation. He discovers that the universe is not only stranger than he can imagine, but more dangerous than he can tolerate. Walker fills his loneliness with fantasy. Pursued by blank dreams and the disappointments of everyday life, he comes to identify with the fallen archangel, Lucifer. He sees himself as a child of the sun. He sees other humans as puppets driven by blood, who have profaned everything under the sun. He prods other prisoners with ideas and teases the prison chaplain with his interpretation of the bible. On his release from prison, Walker is tortured by the cruelty and indifference of humanity. He takes a part-time job and goes back to school. Goaded by pain, his body awakens; goaded by failure, his mind awakens. His violence is a secret life. He educates himself on the human situation, taking, then teaching classes in psychology. Two sides of his personality struggle: one to lead an ordinary life; the other to pursue the strangeness of change. His encounters with a Coeur dAlene woman shaman lead to mystical experiences and physical transformation; he can become an eagle, for instance. Dizzied with power, captive to the illusion of action, he sets out to punish those who violate the property of the lord of the earth: Satanists, Idaho nazis, greedy hunters, greedier industrialists, and careless scientists. He identifies himself now with the whole of the nonhuman domain. But, he finds wickedness to be more engrossing than goodness, revenge to be more satisfying than understanding. His power, though, is magic play without consequence or responsibility. When Walkers violent actions have the opposite effectincreased destructionhe leaves to start over. He turns to religion to change people. Through his own radical church, he renounces violence and tries to persuade. He outlines a new mythology of the earth in his sermons. In spite of the smallness of his successes, he attracts the attention of traditional churches and law enforcement agencies. Catholic priests try to exorcise him. After a violent confrontation with the law, he flees eastward, crippled and powerless. Walker establishes himself a third time. He learns to be slow and contemplative. Having discovered his identity and its contradiction, he finds reconciliation. He explores the science of light and makes a holographic device for recording movies. He creates wealth. He becomes content to set an example by living well. Through circumstances and friends, though, he is lead to try once more to change people. He seeks a political office to legislate behavior, rather than to force or persuade it. His platform is based on reason; he proposes rational limits to development and new ways of sharing resources. He identifies with a local place and also with the whole planet. He recovers his power to change into animals, but uses it only for enjoyment. His enemies, officers of the church, state, and system, find him however. During his campaign for office, he p This item ships from multiple locations.
