Frequently Asked Questions
It's the backbone of our narrative, and a teachable skill that has been practiced since ancient times.
It's the ability to "wake-up" or become conscious inside your dream and literally control what happens.
And when you get experienced at dream control, absolutely anything is possible because the dreamworld—Potentia—is a place only limited by your imagination.
Think about this for a moment... What have you always dreamed of doing? Fly through the sky like Superman? Travel back or forward in time? Sit under the Bodhi tree with Buddha? Go skinny-dipping with, oh I dunno, Natalie Portman and Justin Bieber? Visit the Fountain of Youth? Try healing yourself or someone you love? After years of research and experimentation, our consultant Dr. Rory MacSweeney has developed a ground-breaking method of Lucid Dreaming, which we call NUMINOUS DREAMING.
NUMINOUS DREAMING is effective, reliable and easier to master.Last updated:
Every dime is going into moving THE NUMINOUS PLACE onto the next phase, and by that we mean all the years of work up until now in terms of researching and writing and completing the manuscript have incurred no debt.
There are several things which need to happen to get us "launch ready:"
§ Production. Actors have to be hired and locations and costumes paid for so we can shoot and record the video and audio inserts.
§ Post-Production. Sound design and editing will follow.
§ Design. A layout designer needs to be hired to prepare the manuscript for conversion to digital format. It's a huge and complex job.
§ Artwork for the comic "The First & Last Tertön" and illustrations, diagrams, maps and photography must be completed.
§ Conversion. The manuscript will then be converted to both EPUB3 and app formats.
§ Online and social media communities will be established.
§ Pre-Launch Publicity. We need to tell the world about THE NUMINOUS PLACE and we've made some exciting progress on this front recently which we'll share during the campaign.Last updated:
For creatives and inventors, Kickstarter is without a doubt the most liberating and powerful resource.
This sort of patronage puts us directly in touch with our potential audience while allowing us to maintain creative control of our project.
It's particularly significant and empowering for THE NUMINOUS PLACE which is relying on word-of-mouth by early-adopters and influencers in the digital space such as you guys.
Kickstarters have proved time and time again that they're savvy and loyal by backing a whole bunch of life-changing and trailblazing projects.
If you choose to partner with us, it'll not only provide the funding to make our project possible, it'll announce to the world that THE NUMINOUS PLACE is a credible and viable concern.Last updated:
Yeah, good question because there most definitely is.
We're at the beginning of a franchise which we have ambitious plans for.
This is THE NUMINOUS PLACE I—the first installment of a quartet of ebooks—all of which we're planning to publish as traditional books as well utilizing AR. The truth is, the paper-book market is still larger than ebooks, and although we all love trees, it makes sound business sense to release TNP in this form as well.
We won't lose any of the interactivity because Augmented Reality will allow paper-book readers to access the multimedia elements on their smartphones with a swipe.
We're hoping that the comic designed by Larry Soileau "The First & Last Tertön" about a Buddhist superhero nun (!) will be one of the elements within the book that'll be strong enough to have a life of its own.Last updated:
Yes! THE NUMINOUS PLACE will be a worldwide phenomenon. Not only will the action take place globally, prototypes in German, Spanish, French and Japanese will be available at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October. We also have plans to translate THE NUMINOUS PLACE into Mandarin and Portuguese.Last updated:
It is one of the documents discovered during the course of the lead character's investigation into the conspiracy. It is a handwritten letter from Pope Pius XI to Adolf Hitler recovered from the archives of Ignaz Rieder (1858 – 1934) Archbishop of Salzburg, Austria and Primas Germaniae.
Here is the translation:
13 August, 1933 AD
Dear Herr Chancellor,
Holy Mother Church congratulates you on your historic appointment, which is a true victory for the German people!
Now that our prayers have been answered, we advise urgent attention in the other matter discussed between yourself and Cardinal Pacelli in Berlin last month. As agreed, we have taken immediate action to silence Fr. Teilhard de Chardin, and word has come that Hr. Einstein’s tenure abroad is drawing to a close. We would strongly counsel he be “welcomed” home to the Reich where he can be disabused of his heretical beliefs. Although the others in the Akademie Olympia, (Crowley, Escher, Eliot, Jung, & the Starets) are not within our reach, we share your confidence that the Reich will have jurisdiction over them in the near future.
Holy Mother Church salutes the Fatherland, & stands ready to honour the thousand year Concordat.
cc. Cardinal R.Last updated:
