An old man stumbles on the ultimate Truth to life and the universe, but there is only one person he can tell-a young man who is unstable, dangerous, and on the run. The young man, Matthew, escapes from a psychiatric hospital and heads into the mountains, armed and desperate. He stumbles out of a snowstorm onto a farm, where he finds the old man, Jack, who eerily resembles Matthew's hated father. Years ago, Jack woke from a coma, with a bullet in his head. And with a strange source of enlightenment, which reveals to him how the universe works and how to make it bend to his will-which he does with spectacular success. But now, near the end of his life, he wants to pass on the priceless knowledge, so he uses his powers to summon an audience. What he gets is Matthew. As the ancient wisdom is revealed, Jack is increasingly disturbed by his dangerous pupil and turns to the mysterious and beautiful Siobhan for advice. Who is she? What is she? The eternal truths of existence are played out at every level.

About the Author:

Michael Brown was born in the Chatham Islands in 1948. He is married with two boys, living in Christchurch, New Zealand. He is a trainer and consultant in media and presentation skills. He was a reporter, director and presenter of news and current affairs programs for Television New Zealand and also worked on secondment to the BBC. As early as 10 years old, he wanted to understand this: "If there is a God, why is there so much pain in my world?" Which soon became the question that has always fascinated humanity, "What is it all about?" Or, simply, "Who am I?" From the beginning, he rejected the standard religious explanations and spent many years hunting for the answer, delving into philosophy, religion, spiritual practices, and science (particularly quantum physics). The journey was, at times, intense and painful, including incarceration in a psychiatric institution, and trekking into a remote region of the Andes to find a secret monastery. The result of that 50 year search is Finding the Field, which folds the ancient, universal truths directly into a modern story. Novels published: The Weaver's Apprentice (Collins), The Idiot Played Rachmaninov (Hodder and Stoughton). Travel books published: The Weaver and the Abbey (Arthur Barker). The Taming of the Crew (Random House). Academic: B.Sc.(Hons) in Physics; Dip. Journalism

Book Description Createspace. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 312 pages. Matthew, unstable, dangerous, and on the run, lives in a malevolent universe. Jack, wealthy and powerful, lives the benevolent truths of the ancient masters. Siobhan, beautiful and ageless, guards a secret that will end the lives both men thought they knew. Matthew was a child prodigy, raised in circumstances that drove him insane. He escapes from a psychiatric hospital, sets out to kill his father, then heads into the mountains, armed and desperate. He stumbles out of a snowstorm onto a high-country alpaca farm, where he encounters Jack, who closely resembles Matthews hated father. Many years earlier, Jack woke from a coma unable to remember anything of his previous life. Instead his void is filled by a strange source of enlightenment, which reveals not only how the universe works, but also how to make it bend to his will. Which he does, with spectacular success. But now, near the end of his life, Jacks remaining desire is to pass on the priceless knowledge, so he uses his powers to summon an audience. What he gets is Matthew. As the ancient wisdom is revealed, Jack is increasingly disturbed by his volatile pupil and turns to the mysterious Siobhan for advice. Who is she What is she The eternal truths of existence are played out at every level. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781449942786
