Beyond Homo Sapiens: Blind Faith

Book 1

The highly-awaited English version of Mariú Suarez’s acclaimed universal saga, Beyond Homo Sapiens represents a deeply personal masterwork by the author --- a visionary surrealist painter who has devoted herself to painting the images of the unconscious since 1969. Through the story of Ariadne, a surrealist painter who explains her work in light of the creation of the surrealist movement of 1917, the readers are treated to the unforgettable story of one extraordinary woman’s struggle to make sense of the chaos in society, as she strives to bring order to a world her daughter will someday inherit.

In this modern odyssey, Ariadne takes readers through the labyrinth of discovery she has navigated for over thirty years and leads them to a new landscape rich with possibilities. In a manner understandable to all, Beyond Homo Sapiens summarizes the evolution of man towards spiritual awareness. The never-ending struggle of good (anything that helps that evolution) versus evil (anything that thwarts it) becomes apparent in the narrative. Ariadne’s fresh perspective gives readers new insights to help them distinguish Spiritual truth from the lies by which we are constantly bombarded.

One feels like the author is holding one's hand as she guides one through the past and the present. With compassionate wisdom and insight she describes the necessary ingredients to understand our journey. With masterful perspicuity, she illustrates, by spiritual and intuitive example, the steps we should be taking to make man's relationship to man a thing of beauty and love, rather than one of destruction and hate. Readers will be exhilarated to realize the unity of thought and vision that unites them with the Greek philosophers, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Descartes, Voltaire, Rousseau, Marx, Engels, and all the great thinkers throughout history.

Beyond Homo Sapiens reminds us that the present is the fruit of the past, and the future is the fruit of the present. Time, therefore, is a wheel of continuous movement. Any hope for a better future requires that we understand the past and change the present. Beyond Homo Sapiens, describes the reasons why men and women continue to be demeaning to themselves, the world and its inhabitants.
