The Why of Shen

Someone asked me 'why Shen'? Well, obscurity, to be honest. Arguements about the existence of God always presume the subject matter is fully understood. But anything that easy to grasp cannot be God. I wanted to suggest complex models of divinity - God as process, as ecosystem, or as multi-universal corporation.

So Shen is partly a parable. Four protagonists -- David, Brahm, Cha Cha and Vanvu -- get pulled into a journey they don't comprehend. When they encounter individuals who act as though they have nailed down the mystery, these people have their imagined realities challenged. Some characters find this discouraging. But the ones who roll with the punches and keep their minds open are rewarded. Nobody gets ultimate truth, but they get what they need.
