"The author invites readers to participate in thought experiments meant to provoke deep analysis of the human condition and the universe itself. The author’s style is idiosyncratic, and he has a tendency to ramble. Unfortunately, Mentis Ludos too often insults the intelligence of the very readers it might hope to attract."

Synopsis

Tired of the same old arguments? Looking for a new fresh challenge? Even think that there is nothing that could really surprise you about this world? Then why not take a look inside; there could be over fifty good reasons to do this. Mentis Ludos represents quite a range of accessible, controversial mind, body, and spiritual challenges that will have you laughing, crying, and developing all manner of ambivalent emotion as you curse and distantly debate some of the mind-blowing concepts presented within. I don't think I ever actively sought subjects that were open to intellectual challenge from the layman right up to the dedicated professional and definitely did not conceive these ideas for that sole purpose. What I was truly seeking was a 'touch of magic' in my life, something that would open my heart and mind to the possibilities of the world in which we live. I could not live without this and undertook my own personal challenge of finding at least something plausible that would truly engage my entire being. There is nothing really in this world that I truly find distasteful other than a complacent attitude to life. Many of us find adequate outlets in fiction-based subjects, although I seem to crave more than this. I want to experience real mystery, plausible fantasy that takes you to almost exactly the same place as the most spectacular of fictional drama. That really allows you to flex the soul as you are taking on somewhat of a roller-coaster ride through the highs and lows of emotions you may have thought you would never experience.

Mentis Ludos is a work I have had in progress for most of my life and represents the deep sense of understanding I have acquired in a colourful life of diversity. I am a master's degree qualified professional currently undertaking PhD studies to further my life. Although, academic studies have not always been my focus, and it seems at different times I have found myself in all walks of life from the military to a dining table in the House of Lords, all the while meeting every manner of person from all walks of life that seem to share at least one thing, the truth of the human condition.
