Dr. Carlos Baker,
…Green is a gifted storyteller who knows his country and his people and makes the most of both… His first novel was monumental.

    Keeping time, time and mystical time

    A soldier named Kadmon comes home from a war in which he left his troops stranded on a living, perceiving, feeling comet. He joins a monastic order and learns to ride through black holes in space back through time to rescue his men. He and a woman seer named Gelda are then elected by Kadmon¿s order to ride the comet back to old Earth from which eons before it had been broken off. The couple will colonize an earth which had grown both unhealthy for humands and downright hostile to them. That is the main story. *** But the tale is also rich in overtones and moves on at least three levels. It is enriched by learned asides, discussions of astronomy, space travel and time. The novel draws on or  alludes to kabala, feminism, freemasonry, the Jesuits, the Dead Sea Scrolls, epistemology and the power of analogy. At times THE KABBALAH PILLARS reminds of John in his Apocalypse or of Joseph Smith and Mohammed recalling their revelations from God. The novel is science fiction and is largely about religion but wisely chooses not to be a pretentious cultic book of the sort L. Ron Hubbard and some others have tossed off under the SciFi rubric. The religion KABBALAH PILLARS describes is non-revealed, undogmatic, gnostic, power oriented, aphoristic, elitist and therefore occasionally dismissive of ¿lesser breeds without the law.¿ *** THE KABBALAH PILLARS has power. Its many metaphors and aphorisms cannot be rushed past without slowing the reader and inviting reflection. *** Here are a very few samples. --What seems memory may instead be coming from the future, not from past associations. (Ch. 1) --Destiny can be incomplete. Does the future pull a person until destiiny is completed? (Chs. 2 & 12) --¿History is a false prophet. It stutters as it repeats itself.¿ (Ch. 2) --The best choice of which of infinite paths to take at a crossroads is based on ¿the highest morality you can conceive at the moment.¿ (Ch. 3) --The biggest secret of the universe is that ¿whatever goes around comes around, with a tenfold increase in moral mass and velocity.¿  (Ch. 3 and often thereafter.) --(While Kadmon and Gelda wander among a planet¿s poor and homeless:) ¿It is not our task to ignite aspirations.¿ (Ch. 5) --¿You are supposed to be aware of everything but attached to nothing, as the old Jesuit order had taught on earth.¿ (Ch. 5)  *** Here, the multi-minded Lewis Green sees reality from a Jesuit perspective. Ignatian (or Jesuit) detachment  from (aka ¿indifference to") created good, unleashes enormous personal and social power in the service of either an infinite Good or the Kingdom¿s ¿pearl of great price.¿ Not only Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, sensed this power but so did his very different contemporary Saint Philip Neri who said that with twelve truly detached or indifferent men he could convert the world. --¿A strong mastery of analogy is needed. It is the algebra standing between images and words.¿  (Ch. 6) --¿Kadmon briefly saw himself and the women as unimportant afterthoughts in the journey of man, a slightly blurred mistake shooting the tube of a black hole...¿ (Ch. 7) --¿Upon your creation, you were loaded up with a destiny, a purpose, which remains on course forever.¿ (Ch. 11) --Kadmon thinks of the graves of his buried ancestors ¿all those from whose blood he had escaped to enter into this life.¿ (Ch.11) Lewis Green is also a gifted poet. The passage mentioned below has the evocative power of the Irish poet ¿A.E.¿¿s ¿In the lost childhood of Judas, Christ was betrayed.¿  With equivalent insight Lewis Green alludes to Mary and Martha of Bethany, Lazarus¿s sisters, close friends of Jesus. The sisters represent two major dimensions of Christianity: contemplation and action. Lewis Green asks: ¿they were friends, weren¿t they?¿   Yet, what
