The Irreducible Primary is a non-fiction consideration of spirituality penned by author Rob Taylor, self-summarized as ‘A Dialogue on Nature, Spirituality, and the Human Condition’. This short work of deep thought considers the relationships we, as humans, have with ourselves as well as aspects such as nature, society and a sense of spirituality. This volume challenges readers to look within for the energy which they are seeking to fill that void and reconcile themselves. Taylor suggests that our thoughts are activated as energy, and that every thought is a spiritual act, whether it results in politics, economics or society in the outside world. He advocates the use of mindfulness and meditation to be aware of ourselves and this energy which we hold.
Author Rob Taylor presents a challenge to the current thought processes of self-help literature, in which readers in crisis often look within in a rather selfish manner to improve something which they resent in themselves. Here, however, Taylor encourages us to look at ourselves as products of the human condition overall, and see that we are all making those same errors in our search for contentment, and that collectively those errors often take the form of major world events. Taylor’s considerations are well phrased, and sometimes accompanied by verses of poetry which aim to explain the topic in an alternative, emotive form to get the message across, both of which combine for a really intriguing read. Overall, I’d recommend The Irreducible Primary as a work to get you out of your head and thinking much more philosophically.
