As the following quote by Nietzsche much more eloquently states, this book is not meant for everyone. It is meant, rather, for the people out there who are on a similar philosophical wavelength as myself. It is a very experimental book that probes the question "what causes something to exist?" and/or "what creates creation?" while examining the relationship between Consciousness and Existence. This is a book that I hope will open minds to begin questioning the very essence of life or at least start viewing certain aspects of it from a different angle. It is a book for ears that are related to mine.


On the question of being understandable.— One does not only wish to be understood when one writes; one wishes just as surely not to be understood. It is not by any means necessarily an objection to a book when anybody finds it impossible to understand:  perhaps that was part of the author’s intention—he did not want to be understood by just “anybody.” Every more noble spirit and taste selects its audience when it wishes to communicate itself; and choosing them, it at the same time erects barriers against “the others.” All the more subtle laws of any style have their origin at this point: they at the same time keep away, create a distance, forbid “entrance,” understanding, as said above—while they open the ears of those whose ears are related to ours.” 

                                                                                            Friedrich Nietzsche 


The poems included in the latest poetry collection The Ethnosphere’s Duality by Heath Brougher reveal poetry at its highest point. No doubt, Brougher is an accomplished poet, and these poems substantiate the fact that he is exploring the ultimate or hidden truth through his poetry. For example, see the philosophical questioning: 

Can inner-thought be just as profound and solid

as its corporeal cousin, the Diamond? 

Heath  Brougher’s  poetry will attract the readers across the world due to such immortal expressions and phrases: “every Truth is also an untruth”, “Truest of Echo-chambers”, “deathful  liveliness”’, “Access to the axis of excess of thought”.
