AND THE HOT PURSUIT
About the Author
(William) Thomas (Hellanback) is a figment in the Imagination
of the Universal Life Force. Thomas is self educated. However,
Thomas' education is of little consequence, because he doesn't
claim to know anything.
Thomas defines "philosophy" as "the love
of wisdom," and "wisdom" as "the most practical
moral application of knowledge, resource and energy." He
weighs "morality" and "practicality" on a
scale with life as the fulcrum.
Thomas believes that freedom, justice, and equality are
building blocks, and prays these values, founded on Truth, cemented
by love, may finally begin constructing the Kingdom of Heaven
"Did you have any choice in coming to this planet?"
The ancient argument asks; concluding, "If you had no choice
in coming here, how can you have free will?" The author doesn't
claim to know whether free will actually exists, however, based
on nothing more than his subjective assessment of physical reality,
he has simply choosen to subscribe to the doctrine.
A subscription to the doctrine of free will carries with
it a tendency for making judgments. Consistent with his belief
in free will, whenever he is not wrestling with personal demons,
the author tries to act responsibly. It is the author's opinion
that, notwithstanding a relatively lengthy history, human civilization
has failed to produce a truly kinder or gentler new world order;
a failure which he ascribes to a bankrupt value system coupled
with an irresponsible application of knowledge, resource and energy.
To the Universal Creator,
in Whom wisdom begins, and to the beloved people who KNOW that
even personal experience can be misinterpreted, and realize that
BELIEF is only a shroud for ignorance.
With special gratitude to the many who watched the signs,
criticized the drafts, and helped make little miracles reality.
