This book presents a new ontology, or idea of human being, in order to better understand the meaning of life, the reason, logic and purpose of life. To find this key to the meaning of life, it looks at the origin of man in order to find that single, essential quality that could be said to constitute his 'essence', that which man, first, always and forever IS ('esse': latin, 'to be')... that without which man is impossible to conceive. With this ontological key in hand, it will be possible to open the door to a treasure of self-knowledge and the possibility of understanding not only the meaning of life but the possibility, even inevitability, of being beyond death (aka: life after death).
NOTE: Please be aware that this book is NOT an 'easy reading' experience! It will be best understood by a reader with some background in philosophical ideas and / OR the patience to follow an unfamiliar way of thinking toward a new understanding of human being. Please review the sample pages provided here or on the book website to see if this book is for you.
