The Lodging for the Rose

a series of novels
 by Rolf A. F. Witzsche


 Episode 4B 


The Flat Earth Society


A club of dreamers,
seeking flowers in a rut,
in the badlands where flowers cannot grow,
But there are butterflies - our aimless guides with coloured wings of science,
sentinels of sweeter lands. 


Preliminary Edition 10/07


The novel is fiction. It explores an aspect of modern society that we are not eager, or even willing, to look at. We tell ourselves that imperial fascism, financial looting, political insanity. military atrocities, and so forth, are so far outside of the sphere of our daily living as if they didn't exist. We like to see a world that is flat rather than how it really is. 

Also, there is another aspect that we don't want to acknowledge either, which is actually the real principle of our humanity: the Principle of Universal Love that we simply can't get away from. We find ourselves reminded again and again that the world really is a sphere, politically and in love, militarily and in sex, ideologically and in romance, contrary to what we believe or fear it is. 

But must we respond to the truth? Canít we remain alive in the world of our small dreams as devoted members of the 'Flat Earth Society?' 

Oh. but why should we go on living in a rut? The Principle of Universal Love opens up new horizons for us. Sure, it also raises a few eyebrows along the way. But what about them? Do the difficulties change the principle involved? - 

The novel presented here in preliminary edition is Episode 4B of the epic series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose.
