Hello, My Name Is Adrian

( 2 )

Overview

What if we got it right from the very beginning? What if humans in Paradise set out to write and live a mythology that encouraged them to access their fully developed selves instead of insisting that they be repulsed and terrorized by their potential? Then we would not have the story of Adam & Eve. We would have the story of Jensy-Matti and John-Leupold: a couple of prototypical humans for this dawning Age of Paradox, living in the post-identity Adrianic humanity.

    A contemporary Dick and Jane

    What a wonderful, whimsical children's book. If our children were prepared for the complexity and richness of the world, with books like this, instead of isolated from the heterogeneity of the world, we might have many less problems. If they didn't have you read from this book in elementary school, do yourself a favor and read it now. It's not ever too late to become a child again.

    What they wouldn't/couldn't teach you in school

    ianjohn, who writes primarily, as Copernicus again, has come out with a children's/adult book. Ideally, he would like elementary school children to read it either at home or in school. But he knows US society will have to become much more sophisticated and brave before that ever happens. So he has directed the book also at adults, knowing that they missed the education on the morality of paradox and their full human potential in the K - college system as well. again replaces Dick and Jane with Jensy-Matti and John-Leupold. Brother and sister, together they grow in a world free from binaric restraint and mythologies of rigidity and simplicity. At times humorous and always hopeful, this book will knock your socks off. It gives you an education you've not ever received and an education that the powers that be would not ever want you to receive. This book is sure, every year, to be at the top of the American Library Association's most challenged book list. Celebrate your right to read, Americans. Read this (soon to be) banned book and try to figure out why complexity and honesty are so threatening. This is the ultimate graduation gift!!!
