ABOUT Panteley Bahchevanov

Panteley Bahchevanov



A hypothesis related to the physics of life.
Alternative theology that laments the rise of science and materialism in contemporary culture.
Written as a kind of philosophical soliloquy, Bahchevanov (The Parallel World, 2007) wastes no
time introducing his paranormal world. For a three-year stretch, his neighbor was Mrs. G.P. Not your
grandmother’s medium, Mrs. G.P. had achieved contact with no mere splash of ectoplasm, but
extraterrestrial creature Mo. The veracity of Mrs. G.P. was never in question as Mo had an uncanny
fluency with the personal details of its contactees—the entity even divulged certain information about
a Football World Cup. Mo isn’t necessarily the wellspring of all of Bahchevanov’s ideas, but Mo and
Poo (the name for an assortment of transcendental beings) are certainly big players in his cosmic
scheme. It’s admittedly intriguing, but the book has an uncomfortable relationship with traditional
science and argumentation that, at times, works against the author’s hypothesis. It’s apparent in several passages that Bahchevanov is not a
native writer of English or perhaps just a creative one lacking an editor. His voice is powerful and obviously intelligent, so the book isn’t ruined
by some unique lexical decisions. The problem is the rhetoric. When he dismisses the traditional historical interpretations of the Easter Island
moai, it results in a denigration and co-option of the aesthetic and engineering achievements only the Rapanui artists and engineers rightfully
claim. Burgling megalithic monuments from various civilizations only to buttress an encyclopedic pastiche of new-age spiritualism and fringe
archaeology is both too banal to be interesting and too insulting to take seriously. The author consistently reminds us that the book is dedicated
to “the Creator,” but the creators of the magisterial pre-Colombian civilizations are conveniently reduced to their myths—only scant glances
are cast at their authentic archaeological and linguistic mysteries. Everything, of course, was built by aliens or gods. However, these problems
of slipshod arguments don’t obscure the well-intentioned vision of a more peaceful, thoughtful existence for all humankind. It’s just the details
aren’t that convincing.
A bewildering, sometimes brilliant work of alternative history, cosmology and religion.
