XZRS/XZBN: Eric Hasse – Near Apocalypse

Spread the love

After surviving emergency brain surgery in 2004, E. Haase created several multi-media works for one purpose: to communicate his vision concerning humanity’s role in earth’s environmental future. He received this information in a near death experience which occurred during a six-hour craniotomy to suture a burst aneurysm. His latest work stemming from this experience is the interactive book “Apocalypse Near”. The book is being released in several editions including e-books, audio books and traditional bound books containing links to supplementary media on the author’s websites. The book is a novelization of his screenplay of the same title. Haase’s first effort to communicate how humankind may achieve a symbiotic relationship with the environment was Haase feels much of this site was uploaded to his consciousness during an out of body experience while in surgery. Following a year of constant work on Haase became despondent because he felt he wouldn’t reach enough people in time to avoid the horrible part of his vision of earth’s future. Haase asserts that during his near death experience he saw earth as if he was looking at it from space and watched it change into a dead, moon-like apparition. Haase said, “It happened in an instant; I saw the planet die of Consumption. Then it was like I was turned around to see a biologically healthy earth. The message I felt being communicated was that one of these circumstances would soon occur and which would happen was a choice being made by humankind.” More concerning this experience is fused with the fictional drama of “Apocalypse Near”. Haase’s intends to use drama in the tradition of early Greek & Roman dramas which he opines were more about inspiring the behavior of populations than entertainment. Apocalypse Near” fuses several electronic mediums, performance art and environmental activism into what Haase calls “REFORMance art”. The story begins beneath a highway overpass where a young man lays sleeping. His well-heeled appearance indicates he’s no average drifter. The man appears to be dreaming. We enter his supernatural communication with what looks like a supernova as it foretells a mission concerning the collapse of earth’s operating system. A passerby observes him have a seizure and calls an ambulance. In hospital he’s found to be suffering a brain hemorrhage. Surgery saves him but lack of identification and physiological anomalies beget a mystery. Upon waking the man claims no memory of himself. His only memories concern his mission to stop earth’s environment from crashing. When asked his name he claims to only remember the sound “E” so hospital staff call him “E”. He demands a laptop and Internet connection to upload his “Viridian REVELution” campaign to save earth. This begets an adventure, which will determine the survival of earth’s biosphere and be the opening battle in his declared “war on war”. A love triangle between “E”, the nurse who found him and an elusive muse communicating with him in dreams develops as he begins his quest. “E” discovers he must defeat an invisible enemy invading earth from another dimension. This enemy is composed of dark matter, powered by dark energy and running a superior operating system. Their job is to delete the inferior human product line before humans destroy earth’s “bio-drive”. In the end “E” finds his identity may give him the ability to rescue earth and undertake what will become his future mission in the war in heaven. The next two books of the trilogy cover this inter-dimensional conflict and the outcome of the protagonist’s “War on war”. The parallel between Haase’s real life and the book’s fiction is why Haase subtitled it “a metaphysical autobiography”. Haase said “I didn’t intend to write this book. It was a case of automatic writing. The book would not exist apart from my N.D.E. and fight to get my life back. It’s a metaphysical manifestation in the true sense of the word.” Haase believes he may have created a new genre which he calls “Hyper-Reality”. The “Viridian REVELution” website at: is another piece of Haase’s real environmental mission that is now embedded into the book’s interactive fiction.
