Originally intended to be my last and ultimate work, this project, dealing with distinctions between the Devil and God, embraces over 250 ‘supernotes’, my definition of which is something between an essay and an aphorism, not generally as long as the former or as short as the latter.  In fact, it is the indeterminacy of this genre which most characterizes Devil and God, since one can proceed straight from a two-line entry to one that is several pages in length.  Also significant of my definition of supernotes is the fact that they are anything but scrappy or off-the-cuff, as notes often are, but have been carefully fashioned with the attention one would give to an essay or an aphorism.  They also follow a strictly determined philosophical path, not veering wildly between disparate subjects the way notebooks often do, and are subject to the sorts of evaluating and revaluating I first introduced with the previous text, Evaluations and Revaluations (1985), so that no theme is ever wholly laid to rest until it has been explored from a variety of angles and reconsidered in the light of enhanced insight.  In such fashion, any project based on these supernotes will have a curvilinear inner structure which is the product of spiralling ideas and which contrasts with the outer, book-based rectilinear structures more typical of academic or conventional philosophy.  In that respect, it is effectively theosophical, using that term in a metaphysical sense. – 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 partly due to his mother's Aldershot origins (her father, a Presbyterian from Donegal, had served in the British Army), he was brought to England by his mother and grandmother (who upon the premature death of her husband had initially returned to Ireland after a lengthy marital absence from Athenry) in the mid-50s and, having had the benefit of private tuition from a Catholic priest, subsequently attended St. Joseph's and St. George's RC schools in Aldershot, Hants, and, with an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been sent to a children's home by his mother upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, he went on to attend first Barrow Hedges Primary School in Carshalton Beeches, Surrey, and then Carshalton High School for Boys. Upon leaving the latter in 1970 with an assortment of CSE’s (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCE’s (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved up to London proper and proceeded, via two short-lived jobs, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square WC1, where he eventually became responsible for booking 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 personal factors, quit the ABRSM in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer and office-skills tutor at Hornsey Management Agency within the local 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). Since the mid-80s Mr O'Loughlin has dedicated himself almost exclusively to philosophy, which he regards as his true literary vocation, and has penned more than seventy titles of a philosophical nature, including From Materialism to Idealism (1986-7), 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).
