The book is the poet's depiction of the growing rift between an established past along the great human institutions of religion, history and culture which mankind used to rely on for guidance in life on the one hand, and a present set out to redefine itself along with the new evolutionary strides in science and technology on the other. Following this great divergence, mankind's moral values, especially that of truth, have been drastically devalued as a result of this shift towards a more materialistic way of life. Therefore, the resulting values in the aftermath were the product of the scientific development and the break with traditions, religion, history and culture. They were limited and evanescent and wanting in their capacity to meet the needs of humanity as a whole. They were largely temporal and choppy reflecting the new zeitgeist of the modern culture.
