Overview

The Book of It, is not the ultimate and single explanation of what its author has uncovered by years of reading, research, and listening to the words and teachings of others. The fact is that the only part of It that can be described by a single strand within The Book of It explains, at times cryptically, the journey of its author through the strands of It that he himself has encountered. Strands passing across history, through literature and religious texts and philosophies, and even into the legends of the world. It can easily be seen as the tale of unknown centuries of people easily manipulated by virtue of what they wish to have and how they are taught or led to obtain it, along with what they are oftentimes kept willingly ignorant of as they unknowingly push an apparently undying school of thought and way of life crashing forward through time. It is not so much the story of some grand conspiracy as it is the story of people blinded by imagined desires and glories. Individuals working at the same time, but neither with or without the perceived aid of each other down the path to attaining. It contains a strand of common legends, stories, lessons, and teachings that are somehow known the world over. Stories of once great empires and their cities and peoples now long forgotten, at least one great war, masters who exploited mass populations kept in ignorance, of the same monumental disasters, and of the destruction of it all over and over so that another chance can be given to creation along with the chance to finally build a truly eternal civilization and culture, and more. A melody that resonates with the shared experiences of the human condition. This collection is an intimate conversation with life's intricate tapestry, inviting you to find solace, understanding, and perhaps a reflection of your own resilient spirit."

A book composed of chapters that each stand on their own as short stories and essays, but also interconnect in order to give a full view of what I have come to know of It.

About the Author

Although he did not recognize it at the time, growing up on a farm during the third quarter of the twentieth century brought R. S. Rahn his first brushes with the thing that he would one day label merely It. R. S. Rahn spent a lot of time out in the elements and the seasons of each year and saw each one's annual periods, changes, and yields, things that aided greatly in understanding what was meant by what was said even thousands of years ago. In a book of horsemanship, R. S. Rahn also encountered a story of how the cavalry style of riding used for centuries came to be. It was said in this book that Solon, the Greek law giver, had given to someone R. S. Rahn remembers as Kikulis a text on horsemanship that Solon described as being written by a people who lived so long ago that their days of existence were not even recorded as part of Greek history. That third quarter of the twentieth century was itself a time of questioning the accepted, and searching for one's own answers and experiences in an effort to form one's own new questions, answers, beliefs, and conclusions. R. S. Rahn went out and eventually questioned everything including religious dogma, beliefs, and truths. Eventually he found himself in possession of entire stacks of notebooks full of questions, quotes, data, notes, and calculations compiled during this journey. What R. S. Rahn calls It is what he stumbled over on that journey across time and existence.
