The Helianx Proposition: The Return of the Rainbow Serpent: A Cosmic Creation Fable


The Helianx Proposition: The Return of the Rainbow Serpent: A Cosmic Creation Fable Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Helianx Proposition, a bardic literary work with exquisite fine-art illustration, is a modern-day creation myth that explores the deeper symbolic meaning of the legend of the Garden of Eden. This cosmic fable follows in the tradition of William Blakeand#8217;s illuminated booksand#8212;offering a mind-bending tale in the form of calligraphic poetry accompanied by rich commentary, along with numerous original full-color images. In particular, The Helianx Proposition reconstructs the possible story of the biblical serpent, extrapolating from the Christian tradition to suggest that the serpent too had a divine origin and had a valuable function to perform in the larger cosmos before and after its appearance in the Garden. In this work, renowned metaphysical writer Timothy Wyllie broadens our mindand#8217;s eye to take in new vistas of cosmic dimension, evoking pulses of time so vast as to be beyond the awareness of any species that is less long-lived than the ancient race known as the Helianx.
