Violin’s Secret

, , ,

The Violin's Secret is not a revisionist's view of history. I once took a class in which the students believed that only six million Jews died at the hands of Hitler and his henchmen. Yes, six million did die because Satan wanted to wipe them from the face of the earth. But Hitler also killed five million other undesirables: Catholics who hid Jews; Christians who protested too much the regime; political prisoners who didn't fit the Party ideals; and Poles, Russians and other Slavic races that Hitler didn't care about under the Aryan mythology. This story takes a young boy who believes that his family is in trouble because of his mouthing off at the Hitler Youth leader. His guilt is deep as he survives the great atrocities committed in the 20th century of sixty million deaths during World War Two that is turning 75 years old.

Singing In The Mind

,

Singing has been misunderstood cortically (in the brain). The Corpus Collosum connects the right and left hemispheres so that they can talk to one another. The right hemisphere is the creative side to all people allowing us to think outside of the box for art, poetry and music. The left hemisphere is the logical and rational side to thinking for math and other complex, linear responses for sciences. All humans operate with both. But singing is one of the very few activities that humans can do that utilizes both hemispheres at once.

Professor in History

, ,

Matthew is a professor of Archeology at the University of Northern Colorado. He claims to be an atheist who has had multiple lives. He pontificates about them at his lectures to his students. Matthew has a special talent for languages and is fluent in many types of ancient tongues. One of his perceived roles is the break down the faith of the students who mistakenly believe in Christianity, perceiving that since he has remembered those lives, he can recall them with great detail. His world adjusts as he steps out of his tub with a bathrobe in Ancient Israel and is seen as a Jew. He struggles with the language until he can speak it fluently. He meets Jesus of Nazareth who challenges his every view until Matthew feels that he can rewrite the horrible histories written in the name of Christ. Each encounter with Christ takes him deeper into the mind of God and more into his own selfish dreams so that his belief systems are quelled into new ones.
