Back  cover  blurb  より
  A wisely disciplined lifestyle in the knowledge of our true essence  
  and fate keeps one’s mind and body young.   To wisely disciplined  
  eyes,  gems of cosmic creativity are everywhere to be found.  

Ciphian Eyes is the story of a loser's tragicomical struggle toward the
ultimate solution.   Tom is out of step with the world around him.  He
is frustrated by his job, by his money troubles, his family, and politics.
His inability to engage with people armed with their "common sense"
and his heavy dependence on alcohol leave him angry and defeated.
He is unsure how to improve his lot.

But Tom is an imaginative thinker with a wide range of interests.
Fascinated by the latest findings of cosmology,   he looks into the
origins of the universe and comes to a slow epiphany. He begins to
understand the true nature of existence and starts putting his
principles of  "cosmic consciousness"  into practice.   Tom starts to
realise that he only has the ability to change and control his personal
environment and so there is little point railing against the rest of the
world.   So begins Project Ciphix.   Tom's method of creating a better,
more harmonious existence in our Big Bang cosmos.
