THE TRILOGY OF THE MISDIRECTED
The trilogy discusses human life by treating the three processes of identity, life, and death as three separate perspectives:
- Realise yourself, man (Volume 1) focuses on man’s concern with identity.
- Realise your life, mate (Volume 2) addresses what it means to live fully and completely integrated – and the way to do that.
- Realise what death is, people (Volume 3) recommends living with death as the absolute reference point for one’s actions.
Thusly the trilogy explores and substantiates itself by both ordinary and non-ordinary episodes and themes in the life of humanity, and it develops these through a phenomenologically inspired context. The reader is invited thereby in and around by a confusion of words and images that together circumscribe the actual theme of the book at hand. Given this background the reader is also led further in a philosophical dance of thought models and mental structures, as the trilogy seeks to involve the curious in an existential wonder.
By balancing in the crosshairs between the individual and the ordinary plane of experience, the reader is afforded the possibility both to see himself and his life reflected in the text and at the same time to ponder over the nonsensical contra the breakthroughs.
The trilogy is intentionally aimed at delivering its message in a style and language that operates on both banal and complex levels in order to make the subject recognizable. Its primary objective is to take hold of the complex and thereafter to make it easier for the reader; to grasp the easy and reveal the complex depths therein.
