The Existential Millennial Crisis

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration.” Nikola Tesla

This book will take you on a journey and shake your fundamental understandings of the Universe and have you contemplating your existence.  The author wrote this book for the “too long didn’t read” generation.  Also known as ADD or MTV generation.

The author went on a quest to find truth and question authority.  He had an experience growing up in Ivey league schools where he tested things on his own, for example what happened when he’s swallow air in choir class?  Eventually one day he was sitting on the ground and basically “let loose his farts.”  That’s what happens!  The school did not find it funny and labeled him as a sociopath for farting.  Imagine being fifteen and being labeled!  Basically, being rejected he went on a search for answers to questions he had, but also did things with people whom did not judge him, for example he hung around druggies and the odd people of society.  Ya know the druggies accepted him, faults and all!  Go figure.

Paul’s big accomplishment was winning the state chess championship in third grade.  He loved the praise when adults read about it in the local newspaper.

Did not have many friends in elementary school, middle or high school.   Paul was introverted with a dry sense of humor but anyone loved to laugh along with him.  He graduated and went on to get a BS Degree in Accounting.  He drank and did drugs.

After doing accounting for a while he got bored, developed drinking problem, survived a near fatal suicide attempt and was forced into treatment which lead to writing this book.

What Paul does is explores the truth, and he questions the way we think about things, try to be funny and tell his story.  If you want to get to the bottom of being an individual, keep reading.  The book is divided into three parts: the religion part, truths, and Paul’s story.
