As suggested by the title, At the Crossroads of Axial Divergence, this volume of aphoristic philosophy proceeds to explore the distinctions between what have been termed the bureaucratic-theocratic axis of a rising diagonal and the autocratic-democratic axis of a falling diagonal, and does so in such a way that there can be no doubt as to the outcome of each axial progression, whether it be in respect of Social Theocracy or Social Democracy, with eschatological implications which give a contemporary  twist to the concept of Judgement and the consequences of what is at stake in any contest between the two axes, the divergent natures of which have been more comprehensively fleshed out here than in the preceding title Apocalypso (2003).  But as anyone familiar with that project will agree, there can be only one path for the self-respecting Righteous to follow, and such a path leads up and in rather than down and out. - John O'Loughlin.

John O’Loughlin was born in Salthill, Galway, the Republic of Ireland, of mixed Irish- and British-born parents in 1952. Following a parental split he was brought to England by his mother and grandmother (who had initially returned to Ireland with her Aldershot-born daughter upon the death of her husband) in the mid-50s and attended junior schools in Aldershot (Hampshire) and, upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, Carshalton Beeches (Surrey) where, despite an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been placed in care by his mother, he subsequently attended secondary school in Sutton. Graduating in 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved to London and went on, via two short-lived jobs, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square, where he eventually became responsible, as a clerical officer, for booking ABRSM examination venues throughout Britain and ireland. After a brief flirtation with Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of factors, handed in his notice at the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer and office-skills tutor at Hornsey YMCA in the late '80s and early '90s, he has steadfastly continued with ever since. His novels include Changing Worlds (1976), An Interview Reviewed (1979), Secret Exchanges (1980), Sublimated Relations (1981), and Deceptive Motives (1981). Ever since the mid-80s Mr O'Loughlin has steadfastly dedicated himself to philosophy, which he regards as his true literary vocation, and has penned more than seventy titles of a philosophical nature, including Devil and God (1985-6), Towards the Supernoumenon (1987), Elemental Spectra (1988-9), Philosophical Truth (1991-2) and, more recently, The Best of All Possible Worlds (2008), The Centre of Truth (2009), Insane but not Mad (2011) and Philosophic Flights of Poetic Fancy (2012).
