The Republic of Helios is about the terraforming of Mars and the establishment of government that is a more perfect union through a more perfect Constitution. All that has to be accepted is teleportation devices have been invented. Spinozists are seen as attempting to undermine the West. Given the goal is to find some escapist entertainment, that can be read and forgetten then give The Repubilc of Helios a pass. The Republic of Helios is not escapism. The Republic of Helios is on Smashwords and other e-book outlets and also on Kindle.
About Thomas Berry
I was diagnosed with schizophrenia decades ago. That diagnosis would no longer apply now. Being on disability I had a lot of time to read. I read lots of academic philosophy about which I became very disenchanted. I also came to the conclusion that academic philosophy was not the harmless puzzle solving activity that academic philosophy appears to be. I was amidst a personal apocalypse and could not relate at all to apocalyptic entertainments. I also had an early liking for science fiction. The Republic of Helios combines disenchantment with academic philosophy, a repulsion at apocalyptic entertainments with a liking for science fiction. Is there now a Spinozist group amidst the West? Yes, there is. Academic philosophers, who reason more or less endlessly, have no place to run to except Spinoza. The Republic of Helios can be found at Smashwords and other web retail E-book outlets and also on Kindle.
