BYRON BAY, Australia – In his recently released book, “Platypus Dreaming,” (published by Xlibris AU) author Graeme Innes shows language has been hijacked and the words used as colonizing swords rather than fulfilling their function as soul food. Designed to spark the mind and ignite individually useless snippets of experience, more and more, Innes argues that words have become the limiting, self-constructed bars to an asphyxiating jail creating a babble of social tyranny.

The book’s central concept is to show that Western style hierarchical societies are hamstrung because the gender based employment of information is driven by logic and reason alone, denying the efficacy of feeling and intuition from delivering responses capable of resolving problems at their roots.

Bound by an ancient Aboriginal story handed down over the millennia, it tells of a young Aboriginal woman born into the “Platypus Dreaming” whose wisdom and intelligence will move like the perfume of a flower on the wind, traveling across the land and then internationally, causing all the different culture to realize that they belong together, uniting all the cultures in a single harmonious organism.

Constructed around a circular lore based Rainbow Gathering, “Platypus Dreaming” opens doors to enhance humanity’s capabilities, taking readers on journeys of personal revelation, through hidden, sub-conscious layers of development built and handed down over generations from stories that have shaped man’s unfolding, but which now herald a new phase of personal and collective healing.
