My sister Charis and I have started a Facebook page for the novel
The intention of the page is to create a THINK TANK for our readers to contribute with ideas on how we can all help to make this world a better place for all of us to live in. A world that we will feel happy that future generations live in.
The Twilight of the Fourth World is inspired by the teachings of His Holiness The Dalai Lama who is an enlightened being that preaches a message of peace and harmony for all. IT is also inspired by the prophecies of the Indian Hopis. When we started writing we were oblivious to the connection between Tibet and the Hopis. In fact the character that is inspired on His Holiness, the Rainbow Warrior is closely connected to the Hopi traditions and that is real synchronicity.
The truth is that many of the things that we have narrated in our novel are happening as the Hopis predicted. It is not a coincidence that our democracies and personal freedoms at risk as we have found out thanks to Wikileaks. Wikileaks has released 17 different documents relating to the so-called ‘secret’ negotiations for a massive global trade deal known as the Trade in Services Agreement, a lesser known cousin of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that US President Barack Obama has been campaigning heavily for in Washington. The leak has been timed to coincide with a meeting of leaders for the Trade in Services Agreement in Paris. TiSA is one of three trade treaties that global political leaders have been trying to agree on, alongside TTP and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
Negotiations for the deals have been conducted in private. While this is standard procedure, it has raised suspicions about the content of the talks. One UK MEP wrote an op-ed on the fact that she’d seen the ‘undemocratic’ TTIP deal, but wasn’t at liberty to reveal any of its contents. Another study said even EU representatives in Brussels thought their European Commission colleagues were making deals behind closed doors.
