The Unsong of TheoFiction

June 09th, 2017 by G.

I recently ran across a wonderful work of theofiction, called the Unsong.  Its by the SlateStarCodex guy.

There is one reference to Mormons in it which is not disrespectful, but we come across as a little bit like comic figures of fun.  Oh, well, I’ll take it.

My name is Aaron Smith-Teller and I am twenty-two years old. I was fiddling with a rubber band and counting the minutes until my next break and seeking the hidden transcendent Names of God.

“AR-ASH-KON-CHEL-NA-VAN-TSIR,” I chanted.

That wasn’t a hidden transcendent Name of God. That wasn’t surprising. During my six months at Countenance I must have spoken five hundred thousand of these words. Each had taken about five seconds, earned me about two cents, and cost a small portion of my dignity. None of them had been hidden transcendent Names of God.

We could have had it worse.

“A majestic golden eagle flew onto the Vatican balcony as Pope Paul VI was addressing the faithful. The bird gingerly removed the Pontiff’s glasses with its beak, then poked out his left eye before flying away with an awful shriek.”
