Amazon US Paperback link: The Library of Time (The Undreaming Chronicles, Book Two)
Preview the first chapter of The Library of Time.
Book two of The Undreaming Chronicles is now up on Amazon. Like with Revelation from the Holy Planet, if you buy the print version of book two, you’ll get the kindle version for free (for a limited time anyway). Book two is titled, The Library of Time. With book one, I had to spend a lot of time going over the basic concepts of ACIM. But book two dives right into new material. And that new material revolves around some neat physics stuff as well as metaphors for conceptualizing the way time is presented in ACIM. I’m using the fiction format of The Undreaming Chronicles as a kind of speculative idea incubator. So, for example, a lot of the material in The Library of Time gives a preview of a book I just finished up that should come out the beginning of 2015. That book is going to be titled The Universe Is Virtual (subtitle still to be determined). The Universe Is Virtual is sort of like a physics version of The Universe Is a Dream; it uses the more technical metaphor of computers instead of the dream metaphor. Basically, I think I’ve come up with a good, coherent model of how quantum forgiveness really works. And The Universe Is Virtual is my attempt at explaining how that all works using the language of science rather than just the more poetical ACIM language.
Anyway, get The Library of Time while it’s hot. And as always, I need and appreciate reviews. The amount of time it takes to not just write a book but also draw one is rather insane, especially since it’s all just a gamble economically. I don’t quite know why I do it. I guess technically it has a lot to do with the fact that the books I make are an attempt to match a kind of artistic ideal that exists only in my mind. I know it sure isn’t for the money, because, from a financial standpoint, even The Universe Is a Dream hasn’t yet produced enough income to really justify the time I originally put into it. But I am glad people like you exist, who appreciate my work enough to be subscribed to my email updates. Now, if I could just get about a million more people just like you (lol).
Here’s a link to preview the first chapter of The Library of Time.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that within the next few weeks book two of “The Undreaming Chronicles” series will be released. The title of book two is “The Library of Time.” There’s another book by another author with that same title that came out last year. But since I had already planned on using that title, I decided to stick with it. The title is a reference to the story “The Library of Babel” by Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. Anyway, this new book is really cool. The main subject is time and I get into a lot of really neat physics stuff in the book–stuff I’ve been refining for years getting it ready to go public. Once the book is available, I’ll send out an email announcement with more details about the book, plus some info on another new book (not part of The Undreaming Chronicles series) due the beginning of 2015.
You’ll be hearing from me again soon when the new book (The Library of Time) is available.
My new book is now available at Amazon US in both color paperback and ebook. Currently, if you buy the print book at any Amazon you can get the Kindle ebook version free. I’ll send out an update whenever the print book starts to become available at more places internationally. (Note: if Amazon starts saying the paperback book is out of stock ignore it because it won’t really be true.)
The title of my new book is Revelations from the Holy Planet (The Undreaming Chronicles, Book One) and it is in full color. This is the first book in a series of books I’m going to be doing called The Undreaming Chronicles. These books are a fictional story used to explore in detail the teachings of A Course in Miracles. Whereas I tried to cram a whole overview of ACIM into The Universe Is a Dream, The Undreaming Chronicles takes things slower and gets into more detail. I’m not sure how many books in total will be in The Undreaming Chronicles series, but I already have detailed notes on what the next three books will be like.
The Undreaming Chronicles series is a fictional story about the teachings of ACIM as seen through the eyes of an advanced extraterrestrial that comes from a planet in which the ideas of ACIM are second nature. By presenting the ideas of ACIM as part of a fictional story, I have left myself a lot of room to be creative and speculate about things ACIM doesn’t cover in detail, or at all. Plus, when I’m done with The Undreaming Chronicles series, I might be able to condense the story into a screenplay for a movie fit for a mainstream audience.
The things I talk about in this first book are designed to set up the series. The series starts off at the more worldly ego level but will build up to a pure spiritual level. This first book only covers a fraction of the information the series as a whole will cover. I’m going to cover a lot of really cool stuff in this series of books. One cool concept that I introduce in this first book, which will play a dominant role throughout the series, is a metaphor involving the theoretically infinite, non-repeating number sequence known as PI. (Check out this song on youtube http://youtu.be/OMq9he-5HUU . That’s my current pick for the theme song for Revelations from the Holy Planet.) Another cool thing I introduce in this book is a full art presentation of A Course in Miracles, which means you’ll get to “see” things like “The Two Pictures” from chapter 17 of the ACIM text.
But anyway, get the book. Like usual, Amazon is the main place to get the book. And for the time being, if you buy the print book on Amazon you’ll get the Kindle ebook for free. I encourage people to buy the print book because it is cooler than just the ebook. But if you just want the ebook, you can still just get that. This ebook is different from The Universe Is a Dream ebook, because it has both full pages and individual zoomed in frames (the zoom feature doesn’t work with old Kindles though)…plus this ebook is in color (when viewed on a color device) and the images are all high quality.
That’s all I have to say about the book for today. You can read the first chapter here: Holy Planet Preview. And the writing of book two is already underway. How long it takes me to produce more books for this series is dependent on economics. If the books sell well, I’ll be able to spend more time making more. Otherwise, I’ll have to spend more time on other things. I hope everyone likes this first book; I know I sure do, otherwise I wouldn’t have put in the time to make it. And make sure to write an Amazon review (if you like it that is lol). With books like these, the occasional atheist or fundamentalist Christian (or just miserable person) ends up getting the book and giving it one star. But that’s just the first law of chaos and part of doing business on psycho planet. My books are primarily designed for people into ACIM, so I need the support of the ACIM crowd to keep my efforts sustainable. So, if you never reviewed The Universe Is a Dream, also review that on Amazon (that one’s gotten some anti-forgiveness reviews lately lol). Thanks everyONE!

As my lack of updates on my website or Facebook (and everything else) reflect, I tend to just watch rather than join the battle and engage with and get too involved with the world I see. If it wasn’t for the need to interact with the world to earn money, no one would probably ever hear from me about anything. Nonetheless, since I’m already talking today, I might as well say a few things.
I met Jon Mundy the other day. For those who don’t know, Jon publishes Miracles magazines, which I started contributing to with a comic series last year. If you ever get a chance to attend one of Jon’s gigs do so. Not only will you get to hear one of the ever-fewer people left that actually knew Helen and was there at the beginning of ACIM, but you might also get to engage with the witeral, punderful Dr. Baba Jon.
I imagine most people who will bother to read this already know Ken Wapnick finally had enough back on December 27. Seeing as it’s still fresh news, Jon Mundy talked a lot about Ken when I saw him. I never met Ken…in this lifetime anyway…but obviously he had a major impact on me. Consequently, there is a lot of Ken living in me, so he’s very much still around in that sense.
Ken to me was not only someone who was an invaluable key to ACIM but someone who I could relate to in many ways. Whenever I’d hear biographical things about Ken, I’d often find in him idiosyncrasies near and dear to my heart. For instance, before ACIM, Ken was ready to become a monk. I’ve been told on numerous occasions by a few different people that I’d make a good monk. And that is probably true, other than my total lack of interest in being any kind of formal monk. The fact is I am a monk, just not formally. I naturally live a spartan, very inward life because I find the most happiness there. That isn’t to say I don’t find happiness with help from certain seemingly outward things too, it’s just that I’m fairly easily pleased regardless of the forms.
And incidentally, that ties into the topic that happened to be the last one covered on Ken’s youtube channel: Beauty. http://youtu.be/r5KEFF5TL6c For me, that was just about the perfect end note for Ken to leave on–seeing as I consider myself an ACIM artist and not necessarily a teacher or anything else. What outward things we find beauty in and thus happiness in is just reflective of the beauty within. Therefore, the more we tune into that beauty within, the less special the outward form becomes until specialness completely fades leaving only total beauty.
One of the special outward things I love is Beethoven. Beethoven was also loved by Ken. But I loved Beethoven before I even knew who Ken was. And while I may be named Alex and love Beethoven, don’t confuse me with that other Alex who loved Beethoven; that Alex was fiction…but so are all Alex’s really (if you don’t get that reference google Alex and Beethoven). Probably half of everything I’ve ever written (or will write) was written with Beethoven playing softly in the background. For those curious, my favorite piece of Beethoven music is Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony Movement II. That piece of music gives form to how I feel about my march home (to oneness). In my own mind, that piece is titled: Alex’s March Home. http://youtu.be/vCHREyE5GzQ
Finally, I’ll close by officially announcing that I have a new book (in full color!) that should be available for sale on or around February 25, 2014. This book is part one of a graphic novel series I’m doing called The Undreaming Chronicles. This is a fictional story that explores the ideas of ACIM. To put it simply: it is an epic tale about me and my otherworldly friend to whom the ideas of ACIM are second nature. In a few more weeks, when the book becomes available for sale, I’ll be telling everyone much more about it and what to expect going forward.
