On the 7th November 2016, two days after announcing the publication of my book on Martinus, “In A New Light”, I had the idea to try to gently promote the work. The idea came to me to draw up a list of 95 questions that the book asks and answers. I had Luther’s 95 theses in my mind at the time, hence 95 questions and not 60 or 101. The idea was to post one question a day on twitter.
However, after a while I saw that it was perhaps a bit boring and uninteresting to people to deliver the questions in this way. So I decided on 15th January to just draw up the list of 95 questions and put them in a single blog post. Instead of posting them on twitter, I put the full set of questions here instead:
1 What is the nature of #love or #evil and does it have any purpose at all?
