Spanning fifty chapters from 'Points of Departure' to 'The Next Age of Mind', the Dramatic Universe provides a total unified picture of Man, the World, and God by synthesising the three domains of fact, value and harmony. This is achieved through a framework of determining conditions postulating Being time as Eternity, and Will time as Hyparxis. Complete self-development is needed in order to fulfill our destined role in the spiritulisation of existence and this, in turn, requires fulfilment of our potential in being and our development of will. Man's 'eternity blindness' is the cause of our inability to perceive potential and to experience how to participate fully in the Great Work.
