Dear Reader, Love D.A. Hewitt

Dear Reader…

Thank you for reading Dominion. It’s obvious from the back page blurb that this is a science fiction thriller. But it’s near-future. It’s set in the year 2075, and the Moon is being colonized. From that perspective, I strived to make it an action thriller that just happens to be set in the near-future and within the realm of current technology.

Given that, it would behoove you to listen to a suggestion from me (the author) on how to read the subtext of Dominion. First of all, I introduce a new psychological term in this novel. The Process Map of Consciousness. It’s somewhat akin to the Standard Model of Physics. Anyway, it turns out that this process map has really helped me to understand the teachings of the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung. And, well, it led me to Gnostic Christianity.

If you really want to know how to read the subtext of Dominion, then I suggest you at least read the Wikipedia versions of what Carl Jung had to say, especially about the Nag Hamaddi scrolls. See, it turns out that the gospels attributed to the Disciples weren’t just the four in the Bible. There were more. They were hidden away around the time the Romans picked the four at the Nicene Council.

And with regard to my novel, just think about how these scrolls and Carl Jung’s insights could lead to a sort of super connectivity with, say, the collective unconscious. If you assume the collective unconscious is on your side, doesn’t it make sense that you can tap into it if you … do certain things. Well, the Process Map provides the travel plans to certain powers that use synchronicity to make the impossible possible.

So, c’mon, everyone has experienced a bit of déjà vu, or a coincidence that was so unlikely that it’s just swept under the rug. What I’m saying is that wouldn’t it be great if via prayer you could line up coincidences? I’m not saying it’s that easy, but that is indeed the basic pathway.

I have a blog at Leave me a comment and I’ll respond.

About the Author

D.A. Hewitt is an award-winning author of four novels and over a hundred short stories. One novel was awarded a gold medal from the Independent Publishers Book Awards for best regional fiction. He attributes his success to hard work, honing a skill and providing an outlet for his passion for writing.

Born in Michigan, he lived for 25 years in North Carolina before returning to live in his home state. In addition to enjoying sky diving and mountain climbing, he is a proud veteran of the US Marine Corps and has earned a degree in mathematics.

Mr. Hewitt admits to a fascination with the work of Carl Jung and of the Gnostic religion. He’d always thought intertwining these topics in a science fiction novel was a stretch, but one day the storyline of Dominion came to him. He wrote the novel in a stream of consciousness. “It makes sense, tapping into the collective unconscious,” Mr. Hewitt says, “very much like Carl Jung might have predicted.”

It’s the year 2075. Lunar mining and processing facilities have prospered near the lunar south pole, where the Moon’s largest city, Valhalla, rests on the rim of the Shackleton Crater.

Dominion Off-Earth Resources has beaten the competition into space and is ready to establish its monopoly with the opening of the orbiting space resort Dominion. But Pettit Space Industries has a secret plan to emerge as a major contender in the commercialization of space. The upstart company is training the first space rescue squad at a secluded off-grid site in Barrow, Alaska.

The rescue squad gets nearly more than it can handle when its first mission involves the Pope, who’s traveling to the Moon to establish the Lunar See. During the rescue attempt, they discover Earth is imperiled by an asteroid large enough to cause mass extinction. Using the unique skills taught during their training, skills emphasized by the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung, these Jungi Knights must elevate their game if they are to save both the Earth and the Pope—while not getting killed in the process.
