The First Novel of the AQUARIAN AGE

Monday, June 7th, 2021

 

THE FIRST AQUARIAN COMMANDER  is LT. COL. EMMANUEL GOMEZ GARCIA.

In 2032, Manny Garcia is elected 49th President of the United States in a third party landslide. 
In this historic election, President Garcia unites the country behind his American Revival Party. He upends the corruption long endemic within the two- party system. He starts clearing away the permanent logjam that had been blocking populist agendas in Washington, DC for the past sixty years. 
The mantra repeated over and over at all American Revival rallies was both an economic principle and a spiritual affirmation:

 

 

There were also stunning victories in both houses of Congress.

This book opens with the exuberance of Garcia’s victorious election in November, 2032. 

The story closes on the more sobering first day of the Garcia administration in January, 2033. These political milestones will frame President Emmanuel Gomez Garcia, as he was eventually to become.

However, this book is about Manny in the ninth grade. He goes to Chestnut Jr. High School on the north end of Springfield, Massachusetts. The year is 1986 — the Internet is just starting up, but iPhones won’t come out for another 20 years. The future military commander and political champion has just accepted a challenge to get through the locked barricades installed in his school and break into Chestnut’s forbidden third floor tower.

At age 15, Manny Garcia’s personal world has just been turned upside-down and inside-out. 

UPSIDE-DOWN because Manny and his new friend, Ellen Rosen, have realized that they are falling in love. 

INSIDE-OUT because Manny is about to encounter Samuel T. Hermano, his Magic Teacher— part wizard and part rabbi— sent by secret allies to prepare the boy for his future role on the world stage.

Manny’s journey to fulfill his destiny began early one morning in Science class, where an odd business card was passed to him.

 

AUTHOR’S NOTES
More than any other metaphysical influence, the practice of MONOTHEISM has bestowed spiritual transcendence onto the biology of human evolution. The practice of Idolatry had served to institutionalize human spirituality into earth-bound and regressive natural forces.
Idolatry— Materialism— is the expression of instincts and desires that would reduce human consciousness only to a rational animal’s relationship with its natural environment. Within such materialistic thinking, there is no human potential that can transcend material reality. 
Pagan people were materialists in that they conceptualized unseen forces of nature as individualized gods. They worshipped graven images of their gods and used repetitious, ritualized behavior in order to affect their gods. They made sacrifices to influence the outcomes that physical laws of nature had on their material lives.

The historical purpose of the Jewish people has always been to oppose the natural inclination of human beings towards Materialism.

In Biblical literature, the vehemence of Jews against worshipping nature is made most dramatic in the story of Jezebel. 
The Biblical Queen Jezebel with King Ahab tried— disastrously— to introduce Ba’al worship into ancient Israel. They built public idols to this fertility god and prayed to his craven image as a bull.
The story goes that Jezebel was brutally assassinated by the followers of the Jewish prophet Elijah. They threw her off her bedroom balcony where she was immediately torn apart by a pack of devouring dogs.
THE FIRST AQUARIAN COMMANDER premises that the ancestors of Queen Jezebel were joined by a host of her loyal followers and that they established the House of Ba’al in 830 BC. Jezebel‘s lineage has remained unbroken these 28 centuries for the single purpose of undermining the invisible God of the Jews.
The priests of Ba’al prophesied that during the period of transition between the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius, at the Winter Solstice calculated to be 1989 AD, future Materialists would consecrate a bronze idol to Ba’al and place him at the very center of world commerce. Prince Ba’al, Lord of the Earth would then unleash a half century of unbridled materialism and unmitigated greed that would be popularly promoted as “prosperity.” 
As the Astoria Rebbe had asserted until his dying day, “The Ba’alist Agenda must be destroyed by using every natural and supernatural means.”
