The Collector’s Edition includes the fully illuminated text of The Helianx Proposition, four DVD’s, glossary, and a commentary providing added narrative dimension to this cosmic fable. This creation myth explores the deeper symbolic meaning of the traditional Christian Garden of Eden scene and what the Serpent was doing there. As the creature’s impact was apparently so profound, the tale suggests that the Serpent had a divine origin and a valuable function to perform.
Over 29 years were spent illustrating the story and is exquisitely produced and designed to last many generations. There will be elements of considerable interest to the contemporary cosmologist, and which will add insight into the persistence of the presence of dragons, snakes, and rainbow serpents in the stories we have told ourselves over the thousands of years of human history.
ReviewsTimothy Wylie's Hellanx is a delightfully engaging tale that challenges our preconceptions of cosmic realities, accompanied by exquisite paintings that draw the reader into a mind-bending alternate reality, all seamlessly woven into an extraordinary work of art.— Peter Russell, author of The Global Brain, From Science to God
In its present form, The Helianx Proposition unifies three stages of expression. The original story can be read in the calligraphic text, illuminated by the images that emerged over three decades of intuitive work. On your second reading, slow down even more and let the written work resonate with the dream forms and colors. Eventually, when you feel you know the tale well and have soaked a while in its pool, start to add the third and final layer of the text on the facing pages. The interplay of the three levels of information resembles a kind of exponential Bach fugue with themes moving at different speeds and weaving themselves together in inter-dimensional flows of time, and at some point, you will begin to recognize yourself in this music. — Fredric Lehrman, author of The Sacred Landscape
Welcome to a cosmic creation fable in the tradition of William Blake’s illuminated books—a modern-day visionary creation myth that explores the deeper symbolic meaning of the biblical legend of the Garden of Eden. In particular, The Helianx Proposition reconstructs the possible story of the serpent, extrapolating from the profound Christian tradition the interpretation of this key figure to suggest that the serpent too had a divine origin and a valuable function to perform in the larger cosmos before and after its appearance in the Garden to Adam and Eve. — Byron Belitsos, author of OneWorld Democracy.
