Antonio discusses how he changed his views on his vocation as a metaphysician: is it the priesthood or is it rather action as a public intellectual?

Antonio provides a summary of Proclus’ psychology, cosmology and metaphysics for those new to Proclus.

Julio Cabrera claims that being lacks value in a way that it is improper to say that “evil exists”. Antonio presents his ontology as an important contribution to understanding the fallenness of the world.

On the subject of Conor’s Death and Divinization series, Antonio writes a sermon on the conceit of “a holy death, a death reserved for us from the creation of the world.”

Antonio develops the idea of a Sodomite Vocation in fictional form.
