At some point, humankind must awaken from the trance of divisive indoctrination and unsustainable ideology. We must revolutionize our thinking through a fundamental shift in perspective. This transformation can enable us to move beyond the conventional truths and beliefs of the conditioned mind-set. Through the story of a character named Avatar, who represents the modern human in us all, Spirit, by author Reza Mohamed, presents reality as perceived by the vast majority of human beings, exploring our psychological distortions of reality.
Gradually unveiling the true nature of reality from a scientific perspective, Spirit explores theological, philosophical, and scientific perspectives on a variety of subjects. It considers what it means to be human in both an anthropological and a spiritual sense. The study also examines the brain's ability to understand and reason as well as perform rational, conceptual, and abstract thinking. It reflects on the phenomena of human thought, mind, behavior, and language in regard to the development of individual personality and identity in a society and culture.
Mohamed also discusses various religions, cultures, events, situations, theories, concepts, and ideas to get a holistic perspective of the historical and prehistorical evolution of humankind and civilization up to today. He shares his interpretation of a variety of texts on human development, including works on world religions, anthropology, and linguistics and provides many examples and illustrations to help enlighten those seeking a new perspective on human history and the future of the planet.
