As suggested by the title, Jesus - A Summing Up!, this is my final volume of aphoristic philosophy and one that brings my philosophizing-cum-theosophizing, if not philologizing-cum-theologizing, to a cumulative head, as I restate some of the conclusive Social Theocratic theories of previous works, including Celiestial City and Anti-Vanity Fair (2005), and modify, expand, and refine upon various of the more characteristic theories of the recent past.  Also, not altogether usual for me, I have allowed these theories to be invaded by a degree of autobiography which I needed to get out of my system and which, in any case, provided a springboard, as it were, to an enhanced approach to my more regular approach to writing and thinking. As also noted in this project, much of the writing is more weblog-like than has usually been the case, and that doubtless owes something to the fact that I now blog on the Internet and regard blogging as the electronic successor to my e-books or, rather in this instance, e-scrolls, since I prefer HTML files to most other file types if only because there is a scroll-like continuity involved which takes text to an altogether different place on the axial compass, so to speak, from where it would otherwise be, and one, I am sure, which does more justice to universality in relation to global civilization than must any electronic extrapolation from books which, to my mind, are simply more Western in character.  However that may be, blogging is gradually taking over from book- and/or scroll-writing in my literary predilections, and therefore it is fitting if my conclusive text happens to be more blog-like than book-like.  Also, now that I have so many web sites, I find it laborious, to the point of exasperating, to add a new short text to each directory, especially since this requires an updating if not replacement of any lists and synopses which may already be there in order to incorporate the new work.  Frankly, even my synopses are now something of a major work in their own right!  But, that said, I am first and foremost a writer of literary texts and have progressed, over the years, from philology to theology and from philosophy to theosophy, sacrificing knowledge to truth and pleasure to joy.  My work is its own vindication, and anyone with enough intelligence who reads it will sooner or later come to the conclusion that it both adds up to and provides a basis or blueprint for what has been colloquially described as ‘Kingdom Come’, a radically progressive alternative to either regressive or sensually-based structures of society that should lead, amongst other things, to the salvation of the world, as defined in this and other texts, and to eternal peace (gracefully for males) in the transcendental Beyond which it has been the privilege of this self-styled theologist and theosophist to delineate for the benefit of those who come after him and may well inherit, if all goes according to plan, the ‘Kingdom of God’ in question, such a ‘kingdom’ being anything but a kingdom in the usual autocratic sense but, in actuality, the theocratic antithesis to anything monarchic. – John O’Loughlin.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

John O’Loughlin was born in Salthill, Galway, the Republic of Ireland, of 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 death of her Aldershot-based husband had initially returned to Ireland with her daughter 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 put into care with an all-male 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 in Sutton, where he ultimately became a sixth-form prefect. Upon leaving high school in pre-GCSE era 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved up to London and went on, via two short-lived jobs, one of which was at Ivor Mairants Music Centre on Rathbone Place, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square, where, with some prior experience himself of having sat and passed (with merit) an ABRSM Gd. 4 piano exam, he eventually became responsible for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with English and History at Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, where he was then living, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of personal factors, not the least of which had to do with the depressing consequences of an enforced return to north London, he left the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer tutor at Hornsey YMCA in the late '80s and early '90s, during which time he added some computer-related NVQs to his other qualifications, he has steadfastly continued with ever since. His novels include Changing Worlds (1976), Cross-Purposes (1979), Logan's Influence (1980), Sublimated Relations (1981), and False Pretences (1982). 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 Devil and God (1985-6), Towards the Supernoumenon (1987), Elemental Spectra (1988-9), Philosophical Truth (1991-2) Maximum Truth (1993), The Soul of Being (1998), Point Omega Point (2002), The Dialectics of Synthetic Attraction (2004), The Centre of Truth (2009), Musings of a Superfluous Man (2011) and, more recently, Atoms and Pseudo-Atoms (2014) and The Black Notebooks (2015). John O'Loughlin is a life-long bachelor who, more through accident than design, has lived at various addresses in London N4 and N8 since 1974.
