Which can be read via the links beneath the introductory video and following text introduction:-



Although structurally and thematically similar to At the Crossroads of Axial Divergence (2003), comprised as ever of aphoristic notes, this work represents a quantum leap forward in certain areas which are explored more accurately and rigorously than before, progressing from a consideration of the distinctions between sacred and profane ego to the cultural and political differences between Europe and America, and of how Britain's attraction towards America undermines Europe and creates problems which even France cannot avoid being affected by, much as France differs from Britain in respect of its cultural and political traditions and should be judged, I believe, by criteria closer, in essence, to those obtaining in countries like Eire, where the influence of the Catholic Church is omnipresent.  But America is an altogether different proposition from France, never mind Eire, and its influence on Britain is such as to make one desirous of a radical change in the British Isles which will make it easier for any residual influence to be minimized or even marginalized in the interests of greater European unity and cooperation, a change which, as the reader may have guessed, points in the direction of Social Theocracy and its politico-religious aspirations, as outlined in previous titles, which, besides embracing the supra-national transcendence of the British/Irish divide, include a more authentic order of religious transcendentalism.  Finally, as a word of advice, one should not read Opti-Mystic Projections before one has progressed, step by step, through what precedes it; but once one has read this title, one would probably incline, as I do, to regard it as the best thing I have ever written in terms of that which projects furthest into a mystical, or metaphysically transcendent, future with the logical optimism which only loyalty to self can vouchsafe. – 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 subsequently attended infant/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 for booking ABRSM xamination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with Redhill Technical College back in Surrey to do English and History A Levels, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of factors, quit 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). Since the mid-80s Mr O'Loughlin has exclusively 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).
