The Golden Cord of Arram is a psychological thriller. There are high-action sequences and battles, plenty of suspense, and shadowy aliens in the periphery, but the actors on this stage are almost entirely human. Some are caught in the miasma of fascism, and hate-based conspiracy theories, willing to do or say anything to satisfy the drives thrust upon them by their dark will, while other actors fight to preserve individual rights based on love, truth, harmlessness, and the rule of law. It is the eternal battle: autocracy versus democracy. The Trilogy explores novel scientific disciplines, such as the Simian Model of Behavior, a hard-wired behavioral psychology concept Walt developed. It also calls upon his knowledge of Masonic rituals, the Anunnaki, and Hermes Mercurius Trismegistus, plus Eastern and Western spiritual traditions, to flesh out the plot and further expound his philosophy. There are also rich romantic interactions between some of the actors, and the psychological implications these interactions induce. The Golden Cord will make you laugh, and it may make you cry; it just might make it hard to sleep some nights because it skillfully blurs the boundaries between what is real and what isn't. So, the question is, what genre is it? The Golden Cord's closest equivalent in literature is Ayn Rand's best selling philosophical thriller Atlas Shrugged. Wikipedia classifies it as "Philosophical fiction, Science fiction, Mystery fiction, Romance novel." Walt could have borrowed that and added "Metaphysical fiction" to the genre list, but the one genre that expresses it best is "Speculative fiction."
