"Alexander Bard is a philosopher and founder of the Syntheist religious movement. Andrew Sweeny is a writer and musician with interests in mysticism and inner transformation. Together we explore the paradigmatic shifts in our time, grounded in what Alexander, along with co-author Jan Söderqvist, refers to as exodology, the dynamics of exodus."

Summary of themes:
