Get El Viaje (Genesis nº 1) (Spanish Edition) PDF

By Elias Pessaj

A partir de un hecho detonante: un misterioso y extraño descubrimiento arqueológico en un monte del medio oriente, que algunos gobiernos, autoridades religiosas y una poderosa y siniestra organización, desean ocultar al mundo, en una lucha de poder, los protagonistas de esta novela, se verán envueltos en l. a. telaraña de un misterio que parece insoluble, y que los atrapará en su vorágine. En el devenir de los hechos, los personajes de esta historia, descubren que los angeles realidad supera los parámetros de nuestra mente condicionada. Que generalmente vemos, restringidos por nuestra “programación”, por nuestra educación, cultura, ideología, and so on. y que los angeles mayoría de los aspectos sustanciales se nos escurren, como enviornment entre los dedos.
Esta novela fue elaborada con l. a. intención, no solo de entretener. Sino esencialmente con el deseo de transmitir al lector una visión de los angeles realidad, que generalmente se nos escapa. ¿Es l. a. historia como nos fue contada? ¿O quien los angeles escribe, l. a. condiciona con su cosmovisión y en cierto sentido l. a. contamina?
En 1979 el autor presencia en una entrevista por television, a una mujer que revela un extraordinario descubrimiento que fue deliberadamente ocultado. El conductor del programa, es un famoso investigador de fenómenos y sucesos fuera de lo común, con quien al autor está en contacto. Inspirado en este suceso comienza el proceso de elaboración de esta novela, que coloca como epicentro ese descubrimiento, en un presente cercano, que se encadena con toda una serie de acontecimientos, del pasado remoto y con dimensiones inaccesibles para nosotros, donde se teje el destino de l. a. humanidad.
Por esta razón, el autor elige el formato de una novela. ¿Cómo transmitir experiencias y conocimientos que no tienen parangón? Que nuestra mente no tiene nada con que asociarlos. Y que los que manejan los hilos del poder, ocultan sistemáticamente, porque puede lesionar sus intereses, o porque simplemente no saben cómo manejarlos. ¿Qué mejor forma de transmitir, a través de una historia fantástica, hechos que de otra forma sería imposible? Los sabios antiguos transmitían verdades, utilizando uno de los métodos más antiguo: l. a. historia fantástica, plena de analogías, símbolos, metáforas y parábolas.
En síntesis: una novela de suspenso, intriga, donde conviven organizaciones poderosas y opuestas que se enfrentan a escala no solamente mundial, sino a través de toda l. a. historia de l. a. humanidad, en distintos escenarios y con distintos ropajes y que tienen además su equivalente en dimensiones que escapan a nuestro alcance y comprensión. Son las dos caras de una misma moneda. Toda posible coincidencia con l. a. realidad, puede llegar a no ser pura coincidencia.
