Even by my own structurally exacting standards this is an exceptionally demanding work, the logical comprehensiveness of which matches if not surpasses the best of what I have done in the past, with the benefit of a number of theoretical modifications brought to bear on the overall Element-derived frameworks which, as suggested by the title, encompass both subatomic elements as hegemonic factors and pseudo-subatomic pseudo-elements as subordinate factors in any given pairing, or complementarity, that may be presumed to exist in axial polarity with either a noumenal or a phenomenal, an ethereal or a corporeal, counterpart within both church-hegemonic and state-hegemonic parameters.  But the conclusions arrived at in this work are only the end-product, as it were, of the formative and speculative material which led to them, and it was during the earlier phases of its construction that, not altogether surprisingly, the writing was most discursive and, frankly, open to a variety of literary avenues, including material of an autobiographical and poetical nature that helped to give the text a certain literary openness which should prove as intriguing to the general reader as to those whose orientation is philosophical but who like their philosophy to be supplemented in such eclectic fashion, as much to preclude pretentious academicism or undue tedium as to refresh the mind and keep one wondering as to what exactly is coming next.  Therefore one shouldn’t be afraid of the title, because there is much here that would have absolutely nothing to do with it, and what does ... is logically credible enough to stand at the apex of my philosophical adventure in conclusion to a long 'inner journey', one that began back in the early 1970s with my first tentative forays into literature. – John O’Loughlin.

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 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 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 for the Board's estimable examiners. After a brief flirtation with English and History A Levels 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, left the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer-cum-office-skills 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), The Black Notebooks (2015), and Black Sabbaticals (2015). John O'Loughlin is a life-long bachelor who has lived at various addresses in the north London borough of Haringey since 1974, the year he moved from Merstham, Surrey.
