It is difficult now to recall the enormous impact that George Orwell's classic dystopia, Nineteen Eighty-Four, had on the psyche of the western world. Written by a dying man in the grimmest of circumstances, the novel was intended as both a warning against totalitarianism and the debasement of language, and as a reaction to Orwell's personal experiences with English socialism and World War II. Clearly, "1984" has turned out differently than Orwell depicted. Yet the power of the novel remains undiminished: it continues to scare and enlighten future generations of readers nearly a half century after its original publication. Well-known scholar Robert Plank provides a psychological examination of the roots of Nineteen Eighty-Four, and the curious parallels between the book and its antecedents, including the film Citizen Kane, the novels of Dostoevsky and Kafka, the philosophy of Whorf, Orwell's own life and works, and many other obvious and hidden influences. Complete with chronology, notes, bibliographies, and index.

This writing comprises thirty-six articles the author wrote primarily during the years 2008 - 2009. The exception being the first article which was written in 2005. These articles are written on a number of different topics for the purpose of enlightening and enlarging the theme of Man and Woman Balance as a metaphysical construct. "Can we now define love? Might we begin with the terms Father and Mother? Or how about Husband and Wife? Procreant balance--(the Omnific term)--and a child, son or daughter, is born. Spiritual procreation--(the Omnific term)--operating everywhere at all times, reflecting back to us the love the resides in our hearts.

He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman could together stand in their difference and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. On a personal note, when Mr. Anderson was asked to describe the writings and what he felt their message was he responded, "Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now." keywords: Man And Woman, Balance, Relationship, Love, Illumination, Metaphysical, Construct, Center, Life, Procreation...
