Stan I.S. Law, aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski, has written what I anticipated to be a highly interesting book with deeply profound metaphysical and spiritual components. WALL - Love, Sex and Immortality (Book One of the Aquarius Trilogy) most certainly is composed of those aspects, alongside the euphoric emotions that Law's main character, Professor Simon Jones, experiences in regards to his colleague, Ambrosia Milos. Simon fell, literally, for Ambrosia before he even knew her name. In no time at all, the two were enraptured with each other - emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually, but with danger and the idea that immortality might be on the cusp of being discovered, their relationship was set to endure unexpected challenges.
So, in the midst of it all, I discovered a beautiful and unique love story, but not one that befits your typical romance novel style. In fact, what intrigued me most about Law's story are the metaphysical principles he merges fluidly into the plot. However, even though Law's merging of metaphysical potentialities with the religious dogma of the Bible brings up a slew of questions for one to ponder, the style in which he shares it is intense. The reader may be left with a feeling as though he/she has been tossed into a cluster of confusion. This especially occurs as Professor Jones delivers his lectures. Personally, I felt as though I just finished reading work from Ken Wilber. There is a plethora of fascinating insight, but delivered in a way that leaves the mind turned to mush.
WALL - Love, Sex and Immortality could inspire a reader with an open mind to expand and learn more, but it could also trigger defense mechanisms in devout Christian readers. Finally, getting to the danger that lurks in unexpected places for Ambrosia and Simon, I found more reason to stick with the book. Yet, I still did not find it to be a relaxing book to read just for entertainment. Be prepared to put on your thinking cap, as my elementary school teachers used to say, because reading Law's WALL will require you to study his words and concepts if you are to grasp his story at all.
