The book you are about to read presents the outlandish theory that all human civilizations and languages began once at a single point on earth and a specific point in time. It is a rereading of history up to the modern day that witnesses the spread of culture from this single point and how it changed and whom it touched and how. It posits the notion that the original, or primordial, knowledge of human beings was something pure and useful but over time has been distorted into something that is too often wicked and harmful.
From simple beginnings when humans lived as part of nature, knowledge was a necessary means of understanding nature, and in the authors view, knowledge has become an end in itself, pursued for its own sake and in disregard of the real difficulties humanity now faces.
