There is a world behind the one we talk about and imagine. It is the world, and we are part of it. Our nature , what we really are, lies there. Most of the things we "know" are bits of virtual reality whose purpose is to gratify us, assertions about what we want. This virtual reality, these assertions, are the garbage that mostly fills the heads of most of us, but underneath that is something that is not an assertion and is not virtual, and everything that is good and decent in us and everything that matters to us lies there. An infinite number of virtual worlds can be asserted, and they are asserted, but there is only one real one. It can never be defined and nailed down but it can be expressed, and when it is expressed that expression is called literature. To become fully aware of this, our nature, requires a decision, and the mentality required for such a decision is what the ancient Germanic peoples called Odin and the ancient Greeks called Apollo. The people of! this older, pre-civilized tradition were much more aware of this decision and the mentality required to make it than we are, and I have tried to make what they knew as simple and obvious as I possibly can. Two chapters from The Gods Remain and other related materials are available at the Kolonos Press website, "kolonospress.com"
