If Socrates, Jim Morison, and Edgar Allen Poe could meet with each other in the Twilight Zone, their conversations might sound something like the words in this book.
Human beings are the only animals capable of complete self-awareness. How often are we aware of our amazing awareness, and what is like it to realize the innate nature that we normally take for granted?
Joseph VanBuren attempts to answer these questions in his new book, The Consciousness Conspiracy: Poems and Written Experiments. The book is a collection of poetic verses and analytical insights that are painfully personal yet fundamentally universal in theme. From the origin of life to the mysteries of death (and various events in between), Joseph VanBuren examines the experience of existing in a non-traditional manner that is sometimes morbid but ultimately profound and enlightening.
