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 Blakes illuminated books—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 minds 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.
