We must clearly distinguish between reality (the territory), and what we perceive to be reality (the map of the territory)! In our journey through life, we need something to guide us, to give us reassurance that we are on the right track. Modern science has done its best to take that reassurance away from us, telling us that there is no destination, no purpose, in life, and that in effect our lives are an accident of 'Nature'. Religion, too, has become equally unhelpful: it has become dogmatic, sectarian, and self-serving. We have lost the core, the real message, of religion, but we still need true spirituality. Indeed, we need a map to the Truth.
From the Publisher
"In this amazingly comprehensive and thoroughgoing work, Dr Willie Maartens has produced a remarkable piece of work and I applaud his insights. He has certainly adjusted my own map of reality, or shall I say adjusted my perspective of it! Indeed, the major contribution to learning by Dr Maartens book is that it tells us not to confuse our own personal maps of reality with the actual world, or reality, in which we live, move, and have our being. If anything, this book takes off ones blinkers or at least makes one seriously think about taking them off and re-adjusting ones perspectives."
