I am reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. No one is paying me and I did not get the book free. Julia Roberts will be playing Elizabeth in the movie by the same name. Since I plan to write a review of the book for blogcritics.org I won’t do that here, besides I have not read the whole book yet.
But I want to say one thing that I like it because it is about language in general and Italian in particular one of the Romance languages. She writes that when the official Italian was to be created the officials were not sure where to turn. They turned the pages of Dante’s Inferno and found what they were looking for. You know the saying you know it when you see it? or hear it? Voila. Yes, Italian is based on Latin, the dead language, because it is no longer spoken, and took the rest of their cues for a spoken and sung language from Dante’s beautiful verses.
I didn’t know that. I do know that Dan Brown was Dante in another life.
In 2007 I had a revelation about Dan Brown. I had a rebirth revelation about Brown, not because I met him but because I read him.
After reading his bestseller The Da Vinci Code and even better his earlier book Angels and Demons. The trailer is available for Angels and Demons directed by Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks. Thus I became a part of Dan Brown’s astral family. In a rebirth sense I am also related to Tom Hanks. Why? Because he is a direct ancestor of Nancy Hanks-Lincoln, mother of Abe Lincoln.
Yes, I know it gets complex. I tried to explain it in my book Dinner With da Vinci (which I’ve made available, however this chapter is not a part of it). In order to find a person’s past life you have to in some way become a part of their current life. One reveals the other, and so it was in the case of Dan Brown.
How does one name contain another name?
And what does it tell us about its owner? I use something I call and created: name recognition pattern and it garners high marks. One is often limited to obtaining identities simply because you have not met the person in the life. So you place another person in their stead until you do. It’s not a mistake but rather an application. But before one can make and apply one life to another one must become a part of the other person’s life.
It can happen on the astral plane, mental plane or the physical plane or all three. But somewhere there must be a meeting of the minds, so to speak.
In the case of Dan Brown it turns out that we were astral twins of sorts. I was actually writing about experimental physicists I was working with at the time in 2000. in my book, had a chance to visit Fermi Lab in Switzerland and both Dan Brown and myself were writing about Da Vinci in the year 2000. I did not discover all of this until I read his book Angels and Demos, which in some ways is better than the DaVinci Code.
After getting into Dan Brown’s mind I saw the light of Dante ‘s life flashed through Dan’s life. I compared their history and their names and voila–it was a rendezvous with Italy.
I started researching and writing about this find. It was not published with my book Dinner With Da Vinci wherein I do include other famous people such as Sylvia Plath whom I identify now a biracial English writer/author: Zadie Smith, who was almost named Sylvia as the reborn Sylvia Plath, just one of many in my book.
I asked the question was Dan Brown reborn Dante Bruno? The answer was most intriguing because few know that Dante’s step father’s name was Bruno. And had he accepted it his name would be in history as Dante Bruno, instead of Dante Alighieri.
Read it for yourself. The chapter I wrote can be found here .
