5TH Battle of the Titans: The Clash between the Natural and the Paranormal (Gigantomachy)
The Crystals series starts off from the beginnings of the creation of the universe and the appearance of life on Earth, traverses the whole world civilization, reaches the present and continues into the future, following the evolution of human civilization from its birth till its future possible demise.
In the 5th Battle of the Titans, 100 to 50 thousand years ago, we shall bear witness to the conflict between the Natural and the Paranormal. It is a clash between the Olympians and the Giants. It symbolizes the subtle transitional point whereby Homo sapiens-sapiens, having already acquired awareness of his self-existence, is now trying to address many unanswered questions that emerge one after another. In his anguish to give answers to all those existential problems, he will veer into fantasy, down metaphysical and magico-religious escape routes while he settles down into the final; phase of his psychological and ethical formation.
The narrative begins with the quest for Gigantomachy in the caves of Greece by a scientific team, following the traces left by Greek mythology. During this quest, it emerges that Gigantomachy is linked to the idea of the cosmological formation of planet Earth through antagonistic natural forces but also because of the migrations of Homo sapiens-sapiens.
A philosophical explanation is the simulation on the one hand, of the creation in the human mind of non-existing paranormal forces as a result of man’s existential fear, and on the other, it is the struggle that each man engages in personally and each society collectively, as he develops cognitively, so that he will be able to deal with those fears and paranormal forces. In any case, it is the cognitive battle of ‘man’ to deal with everything supernatural, paranormal and metaphysical element.
Continuing the cosmic journey, through myth, allegory, true events and real scientific knowledge, the reader will in the next series of books follow the evolutionary path of the human civilization.
