After splitting off what I’d previously written as one single book into a series of 4, I’ve now finished a first pass at book 1 in that series. Coming in so far at just under 70,000 words, I suspect by the time I’ve finished a 2nd pass at it, it may be over 80,000 words, because I think I’ll see a few things that I’ve forgotten to explain along the way.
Prior to the break I took from writing, I was up to 62,000 words in a plan for a single book, which may only have constituted as much as 10% of the finished book; but now on returning to writing, I’ve split the project into 4 books, about half that previous writing was pushed off towards books 2 & 3 ( nothing started on book 4 as yet ), and the other half was kept for book 1, but restructured and rewritten.
I’ve now written a little over 50,000 words and will soon complete a first draft of parts 1 & 2. So before moving on to parts 3 & 4, I’d like to get some feedback from any close friends whom are reading my blog.
I know it’s a big ask to read through that much stuff, and at most that’s only 1/4 of the end product, but if you do have the time, please write to me, as I’d like to get multiple perspectives, especially from those whom do not have any particular scientific background, because I’d really like to know whether you find this crash course of parts 1 & 2 to be reasonably easy to follow; however I would also like to hear from those who do have such backgrounds, as I’m sure they’ll be able to help with respect to convincing those already educated, as to these alternative interpretations and new consequences of what many of them probably believe to be evidence of completely different conclusions.

Just a quick update. I’ve passed the 40,000 word mark as I continue editing the remainder of the 1st draft of part 2 of the book. So in a few more days I’m guessing I will be somewhere between 50,000 and 75,000 words as I head on to parts 3 and 4. Continue reading “Update – Saturday July 15th 2017: book manuscript 1st draft”
Ok, the structure of the book is now largely set. It has 3 parts ( past, present, future – for want of better titles ), although I may change this to 4 parts, because the first 2 sections of part one aren’t really about the past, they’re about developing the language and reference framework required in order to understand the rest of the book – ie they are a crash course in logic, maths, modelling, and science.

I’ve started writing a book on this work, which comprises both some relevant history and science very different than you would have seen from groups like The Venus Project, The Zeitgeist Movement, or anyone else. The book then progresses from that background material into an analysis of the current state of the world, arguments for how the past got us to the present, and why. Then finally the book goes into detail of the vision, transition strategy, systems, and predictions for a proposed hypothetical future if we follow this roadmap.
