The real point of 'The Omega Point of Cultural Truth' becomes sufficiently obvious as we proceed ever more comprehensively through the Elements and their various subdivisions, and discover the actual basis of the distinction between soma (formerly nature) and psyche, and of how they exist, according to gender, on both primal and supreme terms. In fact, this text tightens-up on so many of the theories and findings which preceded it in titles like 'Point Omega Point' (2002), that it would be difficult to imagine anything tighter and effectively more definitive in relation to them, since it provides logical evidence for the distinction between profanity and sanctity as applying not merely to men, much less women, but also to gods and devils, as explained in some detail. Yet it also drives home the real point of cultural truth, contrasting it not merely with the moral bankruptcy of civilized knowledge, but with the agonizingly annihilating prospect of those secular realities which hang over the contemporary world in self-denying philistinism and are likely to claim ever more victims as time goes by, unless the alternative suggested by the author is democratically brought to pass and permitted to develop in the logical unfolding of an evolutionary solution to the problem of Man (as defined in the text). For modern man is a problem, not a solution, and until his reign is officially consigned to the rubbish bin of world history, it is impossible to see a brighter future for mankind in general, the sort of future outlined in the above title which, in transcending man, is but the final player in the game of life.

About the Author
John O'Loughlin is a Galway-born author who was brought as a young boy from Ireland to England by his Aldershot-born mother and grew up in first Hampshire and then Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the Thames, to which he moved from Surrey in 1974, and all but a few of his books have been written there, the majority of which, like this one, are of an intensely philosophical not to say metaphysical and even ideological nature.
