Excerpt from "The Era of Human Completion" :
The dawning of new a era of human completion has begun. This time period is marked by achievement of what was previously unreachable for human beings; anyone can know and become the Truth. We had always been searching for answers to questions: Where does man come from? Where does man go after death? Why do we live? What is the purpose of our human existence? These fundamental questions have eluded us since the very early ages of humankind. Many philosophers, thinkers, scholars, and scientists alike throughout the times had been pondering, exploring, and examining these seemingly unsolvable puzzles. We still didn’t seem to be any closer to finding answers to these questions, despite of the fact that related philosophies, ideologies, and theories had existed abundantly and actively taught and debated upon.
