Synopsis

A bold examination of artificial intelligence, consciousness, technology, and the human urge to return to the womb.

The thesis of Big Mother begins with the premise that our disembodiment as  a species is being engineered, and that, at the same time, we are engineering it through technology. It proposes that the primary driving force of human civilization is the desire to create through technology a replica of the mother’s body—and then disappear into it.

Taking us into the uncanny valley where neurodiversity, linguistics, consciousness, technology, demonology, Rudolf Steiner, Philip K. Dick, Norman Bates, Ted Bundy, transgenderism, liquid modernity, identity politics, the surveillance state, virtual reality, transhumanism, Satanism, medical totalitarianism, and a new world religion of scientism collide, Big Mother explodes the technologically-assembled and technocratically-imposed architecture of illusion in which the modern human being is increasingly lost inside, and points the way back to our original soul natures.

Jonathan Lethem, author of 'The Fortress of Solitude' on 26/09/2023

"Anything Jasun Horsley writes compels me to an uncanny degree; the stakes feel enormous. He exemplifies a mind grappling to the very edge of itself and to the edge of collective human experxience simultaneously. Language, in his hands, seems pressured into use as spacecraft into unknown territory."


Gregory Desilet, author of 'Cult of the Kill: Traditional Metaphysics of Rhetoric, Truth, and Violence in a Postmodern World' on 26/09/2023

"Jasun Horsley is making a habit of writing books everyone should read. Somehow Horsley emerges from his own close encounters with such terrors and seductions sufficiently intact to write an extraordinarily coherent and grounded guidebook for others who may be wandering along these frontiers or about to embark into them. Horsley takes readers on a personal journey they should not miss."
