When I took this book on to review I knew it wasn't going to be a breeze-through task and I was right.  "Creation Theory Revised" by Stacey T. Pollock is intense, thought-provoking, and deep. It takes you on a journey deep into yourself to explore your beliefs, and possibly took at other concepts, of creation of physical bodies and how they are formed within matter.
Pollock's model is of her own perception as is in her mind, and her personal journey to understand science and belief of human creation.  She says "Often God is seen as creating humans as a model of his perfected state, that then leads to the idea that he is trying to achieve something…..Is this a goal to achieve, to be one with God….?"  Questions like this transcend on one's belief system and Pollock gives reason to question and come to terms with beliefs.
She separates the mind and the brain and contends they are their own place in creation. Her concept is:  the brain and the body conjoin as does the mind and the spirit. But, there is more.  Pollock explains duality, energy, and vibration as well as bio-cylindrical creation.  She touches on dimensions, time and travel, and the third dimension.
Interspersed with illustrations, "Creation Theory Revised" is very concise, straightforward, and definitely deep. Stacey Pollock doesn't mince her writing, she powers her words with intensity and directness, guiding the reader to go within themselves and question their own beliefs and knowledge by providing a creation model that may be a new concept to him or her.  In the end, the reader will be able to create their own understanding of what the meaning of life is for them.
