Civilized & Uncivilized.


The messenger.

If we look in a good dictionary at the definition of ‘civilize’ we find that very few who claim to be civilized are, in fact, civilized! In fact, after critical scrutiny, we find that it is the so-called uncivilized who are the truly civilized ones – the so-called civilized ones being simply technologically advanced.
Note: From The 21st. Century Chambers Dictionary.
civilize or civilise verb (civilized, civilizing) 1. to lead out of a state of barbarity to a more advanced stage of social development. 2. to educate and enlighten morally, intellectually and spiritually.


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book. February 2020. My search - my journey, is now complete.
