“I am the saviour of all mankind, and I have come to teach the Wisdom of Life.”
The second coming was a little off the mark.
During his early thirties, the saviour of all mankind learnt of his eminent role in the history of the world, and began to spread The Wisdom of Life to bring the errant human species back into order.
On his luckless adventures he delivers park bench orations to no one, gate crashes a Pentecostal church, and writes an unreadable manifesto and then abuses publishers for their refusal to take on the work.
After a particularly disturbing dream, the saviour finally understands that he wasn’t actually meant to save mankind, but destroy it. He then sets about eradicating the world of humanity, undertaking an horrific act of violence in the hope of sparking the apocalypse.
In an age of over-population and the mass destruction of nature, The Saviour probes into the primary tension of the modern world. Despite congratulating ourselves as being the most advanced form of life in the known universe, does our species even have the ability to prevent the mass extinction of life and the ruin of the planet?
