Description

Living inside a mind that's present everywhere, one man who died sins to stay alive. Deus Nous recalls the life of Camrin Triton, an unusual intellectual, who uncovers nature's deepest secret: he may be a phantom in the mind of another being. Camrin Triton-who has an intense desire to compare the framework of God's mind with his own, plagued by the unavoidable uniformity-becomes aware of reality's persistent illusion as he's challenged by a depraved city and the inevitability of death, however invulnerable and self-determined. Camrin exists in a dichotomy of academic progress and inner-city hardship: Laid off from landscaping and collecting unemployment while going to college, Camrin Triton has his mind on Rene Descartes' ontology. Since childhood, Camrin has been a deep thinker and oil painter. As an adult, he's a peaceful college student-an intellectual chameleon who considers the human mind as a base by which God can be measured. During the nights and afternoon naps, Camrin dreams of a peculiar man who helps him make sense of the universe that he holds in his mind. Deus Nous, a unique tale of cultural perception and discovery, illuminates Camrin's hidden intimacies and fate: the decision to or not to forfeit the love of his life and commit unexpected murder. Overwhelmed by vivid nightmares, despite the ever-escalating dreams, or perhaps because they may be conceived by someone else, Camrin Triton is feeling good about the future. . . . there is this overarching theme-extended analogy, the scaled logic of which I appear to be the Shadow's shadow-that is causing my brain to ache . . . [It] may be deceiving us, but I continue to find the will in me to see God's "I" and mine! -Camrin Triton "The miracle is that the universe created a part of itself to study the rest of it, and that this part in studying itself finds the rest of the universe in its own inner realities." -John C. Lilly (scientist)"show more
