TekARK offers an alternative idea on religion, one that's shaped primarily by the modern world. Aided by scientific theory and fact, it draws together the notion of the divine with the idea of the Simulation Hypothesis. At the same time, however, it also holds that all ancient major religions are in fact real and true, having come from the very same divinity in order to spark differentiation in our world.
Here in the final book, Book Three, we move ever onward, trying to answer the idea of our existential purpose in this world. The book relies heavily on the fundamental importance of individuality and expressing our uniqueness in this life. We look at how none of us are mistakes, and that all of us have equal worth in the eyes of our Creator and God; equally so, the fact that God created our existence primarily in order to drawn upon that fantastical degree of uniqueness across the sphere of humanity. Finishing off this portion, the fact that there is indeed also inherent, irreplaceable value in our cooperative togetherness.
Then, we explore just what the afterlife might mean under the idea of a simulated reality made by God... including the form of punishment/Hell that would most likely exist under a simulated Creation. We close off the work and trilogy with chapters that analyze just how literal the modern miracles that are technology truly are; how what we might achieve through our technological wonders so closely mirrors the miracles Jesus Himself was best known for. Next up, we explore the concept of polarity to explain just how and why bad things happen in our lives; how the most terrible of lows lead only to the greatest of highs. Finally, another look at just how critical prior sacred text are in our lives, provided as they were by the very same, true divinity/God.
Lastly, a closing word on the dangers of cults and faith exploiters, seeking to prevent those who are themselves seeking out potential systems of belief from becoming prey to vile and wicked sorts.
This work is primarily intended for those who have been searching for their faith, yet have always come up empty thus far; those of a realist/scientific bent, who seek to explore their own faith whilst still retaining their core principles and understandings; or merely the curious and inquisitive sort, who are perfectly content in their beliefs but are always desiring to continue expanding their minds with new knowledge.
TekARK sprung out of my own beliefs, consisting entirely of them, when I myself found that no existing faith adhered to exactly what I saw and thought of this world. Since my beliefs evolved to become so markedly different from anything else "out there", I committed to writing them down and sharing them with the world at large that others in my position might not have to craft something entirely from scratch in order to express and understand their faith. Likewise, they merely are my own beliefs, and nothing more than that - whether others should find them useful in their own lives or not, I cannot say, only that this is what "worked" here for me.
About the Author
Born just outside of our nation's capital in Falls Church, Virginia in 1983, Richard has always been told he possesses a considerable gift for writing. Having always found immense intrigue with assorted religious ideas and exploring them thusly, over the past several years worth of time he arrived at a set of relatively unique religious beliefs that fit his own personal beliefs and worldview about life. Choosing to commit himself to applying said talents toward those very ends by delving into such an unusual perspective regarding the shape his own personal faith ultimately evolved.to become, it's precisely this endeavor which he finds himself working toward completing just now! Facing many a considerable health problem that have plagued him since his early childhood, Richard has turned to his writing primarily as a means of escapism from the grim realities of his own personal life. Furthermore, as an avid fan of countless many supernaturally based horror, thriller and sci-fi works (coming in any number of different mediums - from the written word onward to films, television and video games), Richard has also found himself writing the occasional piece of fiction on top of his various non-fiction based works - whether in short story form, or else as full blown novels! An as of yet unfinished novel about the original horror film aficionado, Tod Browning, is still in the process of its very earliest of stages, whilst a full length fantasy novel about Jesus Christ's most infamous apostle, entitled The Reckoning of Judas Iscariot, is just now nearing its own completion here today!
