Butterflies: The Strange Metamorphosis of Fact & Fiction In Today's World
Daniel M. Harrison, author
An exhaustive work of theoretical application in the sciences and the humanities which arrives at hard conclusions about how wrong-minded many of our leading academic institutions currently are on matters as basic as our fundamental sexuality and evolution, Butterflies is an equally hysterical and terrifyingly grotesque portrayal of a society that's content to be spoon-fed denial and deceit. If you really want to understand the millennial mindset, this is the book you need to read. Written by successful entrepreneur and award-winning journalist Daniel M. Harrison, previously the editor of Coinspeaker as well as a columnist for Motley Fool, TheStreet, The Wall Street Journal Europe and other leading publications, Butterflies: The Strange Metamorphosis of Fact & Fiction In Today’s World is classic 1960s / 1970s experimental narration. At times the book is best described as Hunter S. Thompson in the boardroom and behind the wheel of a Ferrari facing off against corporate America; at other moments, the book is a modern day Marquis de Sade. Starting on the topic of Society, Harrison leaves no stone unturned as he brazenly explores the themes of Mass-Media, sexuality, spirituality and political supremacy in the newly-connected, globalised world. These themes are explored in what is ultimately a fine blend between fiction and hard nosed reporting, with a little theory thrown in for good measure. Highlights of the book include: •\tA groundbreaking new theory about space and time which challenges and arguably disproves the theory of relativity •\tA portrayal of the modern millennial sexual appetite that is tired of institutional worship coming between a person's right to make their own decisions about who they choose to sleep with and what they choose to fantasise about •\tA one-on-one interview with a leading Asian tycoon about success and risk in the modern world •\tA thorough and in-depth exploration of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies •\tThe first of its kind groundbreaking suggestion that nationalism as sponsored by the state is as fecund and corrupt - and possibly more so - than slavery in the 1800s •\tA revealing portrait of the extent to which our society has corrupted its young by convincing itself of "virtues" which are really just a masquerade for “control” In addition, Butterflies characterises and satirises modern literary and artistic fads with sharp, witty, dark, penetrating - at times very disturbing - humour and vividly real fiction that captures the essence of our age. Butterflies - so called because of the metamorphosis that society is undergoing culturally, globally, spiritually and technologically takes you to an uncomfortable but compelling and well-reasoned place wherein you will discover a whole new way of seeing the world (or at least discover the way that many of today's members of society who are up-and-coming see it). In this respect the book is bold and daring, and Harrison packs each of his punches where it hurts most, with creative insights, meticulous analysis and dazzling research which he constantly pushes to the very limit in order break new discoveries and crack long-unanswered questions such as why Phi, the golden ratio, exists at all as it does, and how this relates to our physical lives as well as our thoughts, dreams and fantasies. Based on thousands of interviews with professionals in the scientific, medical and general academic and commercial fields, Butterflies forces us to recognise the change in ourselves and our society that are taking place, and promises to help us live up to them rather than shy away from them as we have in times past.
