The Ringbearer´s Diary Book One Wolfgang
First, the story takes us through some dramatic experiences from the legendary Atlantis. Why are we so fascinated by this island and what happened since the island went under, according to the accounts? Later on, in Central America, something happens which turns out to have consequences for all of humanity: the creation of "The Cursed Ring" – a inverted way of thinking and feeling which turns bad into good and good into bad. The world has not been the same ever since.
A logical trail leads on to contexts between the Bible´s dream interpreter Joseph and the later Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II, and the author of the story tells us what he thinks really happened in connection with the crossing of The Red Sea.
The many pieces now in play form a pattern: once someone sabotaged the way of human beings of perceiving themselves, and two major works of art tell the story: Tolkien´s The Lord of the Rings and Wagner´s The Ring of the Nibelung. If we link these two "accounts" together – if we "place them on top of each other as if they were two transparent treasure maps which, when illuminated from behind, both together give us the key" – we can see that the initial stories of the book later reappear between the folds of especially The Ring of the Nibelung, which suddenly becomes totally understandable, as if this opera cycle were a "documentary" disclosing an ancient crime against humanity.
The remedy against this crime is a clear understanding of how the human consciousness actually works, and Book One culminates with the account of an ascent through the corridor system of the Cheops pyramid (8000 years ago). The story reveals that the simple structure of this wise construction may be interpreted by means of dream language and the result is the first – schematic but clear – mapping of the actual structure of the human consciousness.
