“Time is a moving image of eternity.” -Plato
TIME, the reef upon which all our frail mystic ships are wrecked, has remained an elusive notion over the ages. Sages, philosophers and scientists have ventured a countless number of times into the dark arena of the hourglass in an attempt to tame the indomitable vortex of this indefinite stream.
Chronos, the most fearful of Gaia's and Ouranos' children, mightily wields his scythe as he reaps the memories that we have left behind during our ephemeral stay on the stage of continuous metamorphosis.
What is time? Does anyone really know? Is it a physical dimension? Is it merely a measure of recurrence? Is it a mental mechanism to be able to make sense out of everything happening simultaneously? Is it an artefact or collateral damage of consciousness trying to observe its inner workings?
It is here, in this chaotic soup of opinions and ideas, that Alex Vikoulov brings order. Carefully weeding out the nonsense from the possible, Vikoulov transports us to the perspective of a bird's eye view, from which we are able to see beyond our confined notions of a linear inexorable and irreversible arrow of time. Skillfully Vikoulov deals with our traditional misconceptions about time.
Whereas quantum physics and relativity theory have been solidly in place for over a century now, stubbornly and forcedly we still cling to atavistic interpretations, which are no longer in line with the well-established findings of our experiments in physics. Amidst the turmoil of this spinning convoluted dreamtime of our digital Cyberbardo, Vikoulov carves out a trajectory for understanding.
Mind your step as you board the Theta, which will take you to the realm of Digital Presentism. Fasten your seatbelts, as you prepare for the shockwaves of retrocausally travelling tachyons, and most importantly, open your mind to the utmost extent, as you're are bound to be overwhelmed by the content of the chronicles of your forgotten future.
Drawing from a well of vast scientific knowledge and not shunning delving into the mines of unconventional explorations of the mind such as literature, philosophy, science fiction and poetry, Vikoulov unifies and reconciles the different perspectives and shows us what lies beyond the veil of the matrix.
Culminating in an updated version of Omega Point Cosmology, we recognize the echoes of giants such as Teilhard de Chardin and Tipler and we acquiesce in awe, as Vikoulov reverse-engineers the Wheel of Time.
The delicate process by which Consciousness weaves Isis' digital web of a multiverse of possibilities from gossamer and diaphanous threads, ultimately and inexorably will lead us to Vikoulov's Magnus Opus of "The Syntellect Hypothesis," to which the present little gem is merely a prelude, an invitation and an incantation summoning Kala to drink her last cup of Time.*

About the Author:
Antonin Tuynman studied Chemistry at the University of Amsterdam, achieving both an MSc and a PhD, and worked as a postdoc researcher at the "Université René Descartes Paris V" in Paris. Since 2000, Tuynman has worked as a patent examiner at the European Patent Office (EPO) in the field of clinical diagnostics. He has vast experience in meditation and yoga, and a strong interest in Hinduism and Buddhism. He also has strong affinity for futurism and the Technological Singularity theory. In his books, Tuynman proposes Artificial Intelligence concepts which may lead to the emergence of Internet as a conscious entity using stratifications from Vedic scriptures. More Bio...
