In Wolfgang Wallner-F.´s book “Elihu” (http://elihu.wolfgangwallnerf.com) is already Elihu in action in a “Transpersonal Area” (after Ken Wilber). In the book “Joseph” there is described in form of a turbulent adventure the way to the God-Becoming. Even as a example how it can be made from everybody.

Dr. Wolfgang Peter
Dr. Wolfgang Peter is analytical chemist of quanta, responsible owner of all media regarding the presence of internet of the platform for ANTHROPOSOPHIA, (Forum fuer Anthroposophie, Waldorfpaedagogik und Goetheanistische Naturwissenschaft) http://www.anthroposophie.net . Finally he is director of the theatre „ODYSSEE”. http://www.odysseetheater.com
The just published book of Wolfgang Wallner represents an unusual, exciting report of travels (traveller`s report), going its own ways, because the journey doesn`t lead to distant countries, but tries to characterize the way of an individual (a man) to itself (himself), to its true nature, which can only be found by association (union) with the universe, with the completeness of all being, or strictly spoken, by union with the creative source of all being. Even if the reader is invited to accompany the protagonist of the action on his journey, to identify himself with the actor, he is encouraged to choose his own, personal way, which will be very inspired by the book of W. Wallner.
At the beginning of the journey the hero of the story is driven to a strange, old, dusty theatre. The stage is seperated from the auditorium by a mirror, which becomes transparent very soon. In the sequel a gap is opening in the middle of the scene and two persons a appearing. One figure is sitting at a table, it is looking old, sick and tired and it seems just to have put aside its pen, with witch it wrote in the book lying just in front of it. The other one, whose sex cannot be defined, is lightening up the scene by a chandelier and it is reading some passages out of the book. Obviously this one refers to a libretto of a strange stage play, which has to be performed, but the leading actor seems to be lost. The hero of the story is invited to take over this part himself and from now on he is called „Joseph“. Well, the textbook may represent a special „book of life“, the still unfinished history of „creation“ – or the way to the „Holy Grail“. Soon it is clear, that the figure holding the chandelier is „Lucifer“ and the old man proves to be „God“ himself, but he doesn`t appear in splendour and glory, but he is representing himself as the wounded fisherman-king ( king of fishermen), going back to the legend of the famous „Holy Grail“. He himself is suffering from the consequences of the „fall of man“, which wrenched „Lucifer“ from his proper nature and deprived him of his completeness. The desire for reunification pervades all the worlds, the devine as well as the human world, and only, if they interweave with each other, the final aim, the Holy Grail can be reached. In this way the final, active part falls to Joseph as well as to every human being. The „anthropogenesis“ of „God“ and the „idolizing“ of man are only two sides of the same process. The „salvation“ of man by God is going hand in hand with the deliverance of God by mankind – a daring idea, which Wolfang Wallner is drawing into the centre of happenings. Mankind has to perform the „coincidentia oppositorum“, the unification of all contrasts, it has to gather the whole fullness of creative possibilities as a focal point, in order that God and world, light and darkness, good and evil can grow into a holy, living completeness. Joseph has to find the way to his „Aleph“ – W. Wallner borrowed this term from a novel of Jorge Luis Borges having the same name- to the point, which units all possibilities in itself. Above all Joseph has to meet Maria, the female part of his nature.
If the willing reader follows Joseph on his paths, perhaps he will be able to anticipate throughout all the veils, which spread across our existance due to the loss of entirety, from afar closed to the sun the Graal, the genuine „Tree Of Life“. How far he may get ahead on this way, everybody reading the book with an open heart, will be able to achieve his very personal benefit, which – in the sense of this book – may be an advantage for the world as entirety.
Joseph comes into a strange building strike, probably an old theatre. At first he is completely alone there.
In this theatre the separation between public area and the stage consists of a mirror, which becomes ever more transparent, until a scenario shows up.
Two actors in a medieval area.
One of it quotes a book, a libretto possibly.
The leading actor in this play might have been lost. And it is requested in the interest of the play that a visitor takes over this part. Exceptionally this person can also read the text.
But nobody is there except Joseph. Nevertheless he feels concerned and goes on the stage.
There he receives the libretto and finds in the fact that in the end as reward the “Top Of The World” signs to him. Inspired he accepts the part and begins immediately with the play.
Intermediate timely it turns out that the two actors are God and Lucifer. God gives the part of the wounded “Fischer King” from the Graalssaga. The purpose of the play should be the revival of God. At least God sees it in such a way.
In the course of the action it will be manifestly that Lucifer thereby intends his reunification with God for the purpose of the unit. The unit, which was destroyed by the case of sin in the paradise. The realization of differences!
Joseph goes thus on a strange (for the reader enjoyable and exciting) journey, in which he experiences magical adventures and meetings and begins with the help of a “woman” the differences to finally dissolve.
The unbelievable journey leads him by different times and space, which correspond however to the usual interpretations of quantum physics.
Thus he finds also possible development strands of the universe and of himself in this journey.
Finally he finds the Graal.
But he does not lift the Graal however (in difference to Perceval) into the sky.
He leaves the Graal on earth, that means: in our all life!
He fills the Graal with water and water a flower. Afterwards the Graal is worthless!
It will turn out last that the “Top Of The World” is a platform and that Joseph did not leave the theatre (the play) at all.
He gave by his play an example to the now present public, how one can terminate the deadly separation, and how to find just like Joseph this again founded “Top Of The World”.
After Alain Aspects quantum-mechanics-experiment (about 1980) it seems to be a fact, that atomic particles either communicate in more than speed of light or they are not separate in reality. The separation only exists in the eye of the observer.
The author associated this interpretation with the situation of the “Big Bang”. One may conclude from that, that all particles, all phenomena of the universe are beholden to each other and interdependent, because there is nothing where the phenomena are able to come from! It follows that there is an absolute responsibility to the assignment of human being, because we are the conscious particles of the universe!
An additional hypothesis is that for the survival of a culture a condition of the psyche is necessary: The hypothesis of a meaningful existence. The religious faith will be a result to this hypothesis in our culture up to now (Carl Gustav Jung).
Wolfgang Wallner-F. tries in his book “Joseph” and “Elihu” to deduce a theology from this philosophy: The God-being of the human being himself!
In the Holy Books of the Jewish, the Islamic and the Christians religion (the monotheistic religions) it is perceptible, that such an evolution is deliberated and intentional. But this can be deduced also in other religions and myths.
The step to being God himself has to be gone in a realized way from the man of Enlightenment (the human being from the western civilization), because it will be a synthesis of both halves of brain, or also logic and
sense. It shall be the human being from the western civilization, because he is the upholder of Enlightenment (but therefore he is not an elitist man, of course!)
Anyway this step stands for the acknowledgement and acceptance of the responsibility for the whole Creation (it is a human creation)!
From this background it becomes understandable, why (in the book “Elihu”) is God able to say: “And if I annihilate the whole universe of one human being, there will be no ripple on the surface of the Creation!” The human being is only one biological experiment of the nature, to add consciousness to matter. There will be enough time for nature for more experiments, but not for the human being!
In the opinion of the author, for the survival of a civilization it is essentially, how powerful human's behavior is motivated. This decides about the existence of a civilization. If the western man will be searching for God exclusively in dead matter in his future, he will turn to such a dead matter himself too. And he goes away from his important nature that has brought him the concept of God among other things.
The books “Joseph” and “Elihu” are made of a vertical and a horizontal line:
The vertical line is an equation of times, from past about present to the future. And it includes the situation at the beginning of the “Big Bang”. A thought about a time before the Big Bang is impossible as a result of the physical condition. Time becomes an exclusively property of the observer.
The horizontal line connects eastern with western philosophy and theology. Many parts of the book are written in a taoistic way of speaking.
Both books are literary works, but with a great philosophical message.
