Memoir from an enlightened future is teleported back to now and reprinted. Penned by a 112-year-old man named Zet after new generations express curiosity on how we lived back in the "dark days," the novel dedicates itself to exploring why we used to be so hung-up about about our naked selves around others and why we chose to eat animals. The writing is by turn humerous, reflective, and polemic, as Zet offers capsule histories on nudism, naturism, and cruelty-free diet, and analyses the subjects from dozens of perspectives. He explores current (to us) trends in clothes-free living and natural food, and recounts positive changes unfolding in our near future, in which public nudity becomes acceptable in more freethinking areas of the United States, and animal products start carrying warning labels. Zet offers his own life story as an example of how peculiar people got over their own bodies and choice of food.

Throughout, the narrator witnesses the world's fitful but certain transformation to more integrated living, as Earth undergoes a quantum leap in consciousness, gaining universal awareness of life's interconnectivity. Working inside a time-bent frame,the story serves to mirror both our human foibles and our growing vision of planetary peace.

BOOK SUMMARY

Memoir from an enlightened future is teleported back to now and reprinted. Penned by a 112-year-old man named Zet after new generations express curiosity on how we lived back in the "dark days," the novel dedicates itself to exploring why we were so hung-up about about our bodies around others and why we chose to eat animals. The writing is by turn humerous, reflective, and polemic, as Zet offers capsule histories on nudism, naturism, and cruelty-free diet, and analyses the personal lifestyle issues from dozens of perspectives. He explores current (to us) trends in clothes-free living and natural food, and recounts positive changes unfolding in our near future, in which public nudity becomes acceptable in more freethinking areas of the United States, and animal products start carrying warning labels. Zet offers his own life story as an example of how peculiar people got over their own bodies and choice of food.

Throughout, the narrator witnesses the world's fitful but certain transformation to more integrated living, as Earth undergoes a quantum leap in consciousness, gaining universal awareness of grand interconnectivity. Working inside a time-bent frame,the story serves to mirror both our human foibles and our growing vision of planetary peace.

Chapter 1 - the Introduction, in fact - sets up the story in the year 2061 of an enlightened planet Earth.
