The Book: the spiritual individual in quest of the living organization

- Codec for the Infinite Game

Comment on The Book by Karmayogi:

“Present life is described by Sri Aurobindo as one held by Force and ruled by accidents and past realised energy – karma. From Force he is free to move to Being where no karma binds. He is his own determinant. He avails of it by moving from the centre of Force to the centre of Being, the main strategy being not to reason. The Book describes the process through a story. In The Book man moves from the bounded laws to boundless creativity. One man’s inner change changes the world for him. Life responds to what you are… Man is really a spiritual Individual in quest of a living organization. Organization is an arrangement to get work done. Such organizations are physical, vital, mental and are known to dry up, be fixed, or even dead. A living organization is a spiritual organization which will stay fresh forever to accomplish any work he undertakes. A spiritual Individual is fashioned by a living organization. He functions through a living organization. Any organization he functions through becomes living. Spirit cannot become fixed or dry. A living organization becomes an organism whose organizations modify themselves according to requirement. It is due to harmony, mutuality and unity. Unity with all, harmony with the member one is dealing with, mutuality is the principle of relationship.”

The Book is a spiritual thriller, a journey to self-discovery, an adventure of consciousness, a revelation of occult truths, and a practical guide for highest accomplishment. This novel presents basic principles of Sri Aurobindo’s Life Divine, the character of life and human accomplishment in the context of a fictional story. Four technocrats armed with a mysterious manuscript, a secret formula and a radically new computer program battle a conspiracy of entrenched reactionary forces in a global struggle to determine humanity’s future. An idealistic Indian marketing wizard, a timid but brilliant Jewish idealist from Boston, a strikingly beautiful Russian mathematician and a monk-like Irish American philosopher-engineer embark on a mission to change the world. A book without author or title roams the earth for decades, silently unleashing revolutionary change, until it finds these four failed entrepreneurs and inspires them to create a radical artificial intelligence program, AIS, an instrument for unfailing accomplishment. Their personal struggle to decipher the book’s contents and discover the secret formula for its application lead them on a profound spiritual exploration of knowledge that is power – until they stumble upon the occult process of creation and the formula for infinite self-multiplication. Pitted against them is an alliance of forces seeking to maintain their grip on the world’s power. Two titanic personalities battling for the mind and soul of humanity alone understand what others have barely glimpsed. The book and the program hold the key to humanity’s future. And behind them stands Life, the whimsical goddess of fate and grace, composing her symphony out of irreconcilable contradictions, raging conflict, unbridled passions, lofty aspirations and binding values to work out her own destiny according to her own evolutionary laws.

C'est la vie is a French expression meaning ‘Life is like that’. Does Life really have a character? Science lacks a conception of universal Life. It affirms only Chance and Necessity, universal laws and pure coincidence combining in some chaotic manner. But perceptive individuals know differently and perceptive writers reveal something of life’s character through their stories. That is why Shakespeare was so aptly described as a “Seer of Life”. This novel is the story about a book, four entrepreneurs and a company. It is also a story about the character of life -- c'est la vie.
