Immediate Eternity

by Copernicus

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
In this document, "Immediate Eternity," as Copernicus (Joseph Smalkowski) tries to interpret the avalanche of hundred year old physical details that struggle to explain how the Universe works, he is undergoing a deep mystical experience. It all happens to him subtly as he struggles to join one logical detail to another and struggles to put the microcosmic puzzle together especially as it relates to humanity. Humanity is also the Universe. On this road of expression, a mystical experience happens to him, but he does not recognize it as mystical, only logical and real growth. Copernicus puts his unique brilliant philosophically bent experienced mind to work and goes brain first into the atomic and subatomic world to take control of a vision that he has spent the last fifty years of his life trying to put together.

All of the work of Joseph Smalkowski, also known as the performer and philosophical rock poet, Copernicus, has been contained in four unpublished books, a thousand unpublished poems, and thirteen world internationally acclaimed philosophical art rock albums. In "Immediate Eternity," Copernicus goes brain first into the atomic and subatomic world, the world he calls MAGOVA, and struggles to extract a vision of reality and bring that vision back into the consciousness of the world of the bare human senses, a world he calls ILLUSIONA, in order to free humanity from the supremely superficial vision of the bare human senses. This book documents the passage from the primitive "mine-I-me" consciousness to the world of subatomic consciousness and immediate eternity. Copernicus' past thirteen albums, chronologically listened to, document the struggle to secure what has been finally attained in this manuscript, the uncovering of the illusion of identity and the total and immediate assimilation and subsequent disappearnce into the eternal Universe. The final lift out of the illusion of yourself is here reached for and achieved. "Immediate Eternity" documents a positive process of evolution and growth. The book is not about mystical mythical feelings. On the contrary, clinically, and Copernicus is clinical and technical with up to date science supporting his stand, all of what most will call a mystical experience happens to him because of his clinicality and technical stubborneness. He stays clinical and technical unaware of what is happening to him. The reader is watching it all happen to him as he spills out his guts and puts his brilliant philosophically bent experienced mind to work to take control of a vision that he has spent the last fifty years of his life trying to put together.

About the author
Joseph Smalkowski (Copernicus) is a natural born philosopher. He always took his previous religion, Roman Catholicism, very seriously. Everything had to be true or it had to be discarded. The clash of elementary and secondary religious education with secular university education was too much to bear for his Catholicism. By the time Joseph finished Queens College in New York City in 1961, he was an independent confused free thinker with no religion and no vision. With a major in history and a fervor to understand what he called Absolute Truth, the free searching philosopher, like a man with only a few minutes to live, roamed the Earth hounded by the need to understand. He searched everywhere he could. His puruit led him to India, Africa, Egypt, Asia, Latin America, Europe, the highways and cities of the United States, and as Copernicus, the performer, the rock stages of New York, Prague, Berlin, Moscow, Guayaquil, Quito and the release of thirteen art rock albums documenting his philosophical discoveries. Only in this book, "Immediate Eternity," do we actually receive a completed vision of the reality that he was searching for in his thirteen albums. Only in the intimate limitless freedom and art form of a book, could he latch on to his prize. Learn more about Joseph Smalkowski, Copernicus, at his website:
