What is this book about?
In this highly personal work, Andrius Kulikauskas summarizes and illustrates all that he has learned so far in his 42 year quest to know everything and apply that knowledge usefully.
Andrius organizes his findings as six lessons which take us from relative truth to absolute truth. The lessons relate four points of view: Them, You, I and God. Each lesson lays out its truth with a relevant visualization that pairs a sequence, hierarchy or network as an evolution, atlas, handbook, chronicle, catalog or odyssey.
"The Truth" is an innovative book of visual thinking. It is a litany of more than 300 deep thoughts, each expressed with a few sentences and an associated black-and-white image. Andrius aspires to present the deepest truths to the widest audience. As a self-taught artist, he provokes our emotions with art work he created in Lithuania and Chicago, including oil pastel portraits, large figurative installations, outdoor sculpture, printed boxes, learning canvases, animation, a see-through labyrinth, metaphysical diagrams, and photos from all stages of his life. He appeals to real life with photos he took of the eviction of his friend David Ellison-Bey from his home in Englewood, Chicago, as well as gang members whom Andrius engaged in Pavilnys, Vilnius.

Here is an earlier 20-page version with less text and many fewer pictures: The Truth.
Thank you for writing reviews at Amazon! I think that's what gives my book a chance to be found there and purchased. I value your critical comments as well as your moral support. I also include your thoughts here:
Marcus Petz, thank you for your notes, which I'm absorbing!
Pamela McLean has agreed to be my first student at my institute. Her first thoughts upon starting my book were that some of my ideas provoked strong responses in her, sometimes agreeing, sometimes disagreeing, and sometimes both. Sometimes her intellectual and emotional responses diverge. She'd like to be able to record her responses as she reads. I'm very excited to hear this and I'm wondering how to do that with her and possibly with others.

Aistė Kaminskaitė, March 8, 2014. The book looks nice at the Amazon website. :D But they wouldn't let me write a recommendation because first I have to purchase at least one item through them. So I will try to promote your book through my social networks. :D "Amazone" tinkle knyga gražiai atrodo :D man neleido parašyt rekomendacijos, nes pirma turiu įsigyt bent vieną daikt iš jų, tik tada leidžia :/ Bet šiai pabandysiu paplatint tavo knygos reklamą soc. tinkluose :D
