Author Jean Ovide Bourdeau proposes that the 'Brave New World' has already begun; that its terminal objective is visible to those of us willing to open our eyes; and that it is on target.
He... More > further confronts the obvious intellectual syndrome of terror resulting from our mean-spirited attitude toward change generally. A fear, he tells us, that transmogrifies itself into series of local genocides and wars ultimately coalescing into planetary ones.
A most evident situation demonstrated in what this author calls our 'Ethical Disease Of Self-righteousness'.
A notion witnessed in callous and cowardly acts carried out by means of a 'social sacrament' of 'Absolute Obedience' to political programs meant to control those who dare disagree either with our 'Immaculate Perception' or that of the 'Special One' and 'Special Group' managing a society.< Less
All of Jean Ovide Bourdeau's previous works were, among other things, attempts at answering the savagery implied in the demotion of women as a group - a crucial element of domination everywhere in... More > the course of history in all cultures and ethnic groups to this day. This work although very different from all the others has been faithful to that same mission, purpose and objective. This novelized biography is a narrative demonstrating the singular callousness and cowardice within one dysfunctional family in particular and by extension within larger groups, as well as an attempt to highlight the wounding and crippling of a child’s sense of self-worth. Helen, the central character to this story, is an integral and admittedly small part of the worldwide savagery of which, the demotion of women has been a shameful, constituent and continuing part of our human history. Here then are the muffled cries of a child in extreme pain many years ago, now still suffering through severe panic attacks in her senior years.< Less

More > against deadly internal and external threats. Stephen Moreton, the master architect, painter, and sculptor, must choose between two patrons; one, the Pope, whom he fears may have killed his friend and mentor, and the other, his own King and old friend, Alexander.

More > waters.

A series of strange and violent events ensue, including the discovery of an archaeological marvel much older than any civilization currently in existence which, in his zealotry, Pritchard vows to destroy.< Less
We at last move on to a more positive outlook - a cosmic one this time - about the unearned, most ambiguous, mysterious, rarest and privileged opportunity of being both alive and self-aware.
And as... More > we do so, we examine a few fundamental themes and metaphysical premises, which, we, members of this species, tend to ponder over in the course of our life, as we cumulatively gain more wisdom across the generations, elevating that astuteness to the level of ethics, as we begin this 21st century CE, based on the total respect of all of our Inalienable Individual Rights.
So, this is a fundamental exercise in defining some logic to our Earthly existence in the apparent infinite vastness of the cosmos, since we seem caught up in what appears to be an undecipherable mission and purpose.
As if we had been produced for a 'Purpose Unknown' to us all – at least at our present level of understanding.< Less
