I read and listened through the whole 4 hours.
As for fact or fiction... An incredible amount of complete BS is fed to us as "fact" on this planet. Likewise, a lot of fiction is based upon
(some) fact/s. It's up to each individual to discern what's what.
One of its most interesting themes concerns Continuity of Consciousness. At least one occult system considers the development of consciousness to
the point it transcends death as the height of achievement - the greatest thing of which the human mind can begin to fathom. One's existence is not
dependent upon a physical body. This is represented in astral projection, walk-ins, it is the *idea* of the Dalai Lama (and others) of the same
intelligence inhabiting multiple bodies over time (and remembering them). It IS the idea of not having to start over from scratch with every
incarnation. The logical extensions of continuity of consciousness are mind-blowing unto themselves, in cosmology and everything else.
* Prison Planet, Amnesia and Traps -- Hell. Its presentation of this planet is remarkably interesting and I think correlates well to the notions of
afterlife of most world religions. It presents that in a religious context we have two choices leading to the same destination -- good, bad, or
in-between, we get a one way ticket back to where we started, unless we can break free of the cycle. Breaking free of the cycle, while theoretically
possible, is apparently very difficult. Sort of emphasizes the Buddhist goal of achieving non-attachment. Yet, in virtually every religious system,
upon death, it is generally reinforced that one should "go to the light" -- and if that's the trap, well...
It's my general position that life is everywhere, that the universe is full of life and all manner of beings. Our own technology is able to render
people "nearly invisible" - so the argument "picture or it didn't happen" is about as moronic as it can get. The world needs morons though. I
suppose. What is within our audio/visual spectrum to perceive is very limited.
Describing our world as full of nearly mindless slaves, criminals, rebels and free thinkers... hard to argue against that.
Overall, a good read, not very different from my view of the world and beyond. What it presents in the way of an ongoing war between an old empire
and the domain is nothing new. It's less a matter of good vs. evil than old vs. new - same interests, same methods.
