Volume 6, Issue 25
This post brings us to the end of the novel THE GREAT BEING, the first in the series AGENTS OF COSMIC INTELLIGENCE. I’m writing the script version of The Great Being right now and it’s fun. Would love any feedback about what you’ve been reading in the 96 episodes of The Great Being, since the first episode (September 11, 2014) or wherever you tuned in. Thanks!
The characters in The Great Being reappear in the second novel in the series, THE FIRST SON, which is in editing now. Both books will launch this year initially as e-books, along with a third novel in the series, TRIPLE AGENT, which brings those same characters forward into the mid-21st Century.
The Great Being story arcs from 14 billion BC through around 3000 BC. The First Son takes us from 3000 BC to around 30 AD. There are stories in concept stage, filling in the rest of history from the perspective of Earth as a very special experiment in a universe with One Self playing all roles. If you’d like to be alerted when these books come out, please just click here.
An archive of all chapters of The Great Being will be available here for some time. Classic Bill blog posts will continue on a weekly basis.
Thanks for reading, reflecting, and making good use of whatever you get here.

The One Self told Abram to go on alone, which he did, with Sarai and Lot, whom he thought would never leave him.
But Lot eventually did leave. It was after Abram became embroiled in Egyptian ambitions and captained mercenary armies in their service on many military adventures, all successful, which made Abram richer. This was not for Lot. Sensing that Abram was going to have a lot more military adventures, whereas Lot wanted a peaceful life in a business or farm, Lot went to live in Sodom. Abram went on as The One Self guided him, this time to a place called Salem, where he and Sarai were welcomed as if expected by King Melchizedek.
They were treated royally and then the King took Abram off alone, up a long hill, almost to the top of the olive tree covered mountain, far from any human habitation — a wild country left to nature, from where they could look back the long way down to the city of Salem. Continue reading
