New Revelations and Insights Into the Bible Are Taking Shape

New York, NY, September 15, 2007 --( In the “earth-shattering” new work The Shape: The Prophecy of Daniel and John the Divine, author and composer Remo Capra Bloise explores how the actual geographic shapes of nations in both the ancient and modern worlds provide a clue for understanding the Biblical prophecies of Daniel and John the Divine.

Remo Capra Bloise has long been interested in the causal effect of shapes, i.e., how a violent shape can produce a violent effect, and how a peaceful shape brings peaceful events. By studying maps of the ancient world, and knowing a bit about the history of the nations they represent, Bloise has been able to make some rather profound connections to the prophecies of Daniel and John the Divine:

Beginning with the Assyrian and Babylonian empires, by tracing their ancient territorial boundaries, the shape of a lion comes into view. In respective succession, the Media-Persia empire looks like a bear; the Greek Empire like a leopard; and the Roman Empire like a mouth with iron teeth… Daniel the Prophet describes them in his prophecies in more detail, and it was through him that I was able to understand more of my own thoughts. In his vision, Daniel saw a Lion with eagle wings on one side, referring to the Assyrian and Babylonian empire; a Bear with three ribs in the mouth, Media and Persia; a Leopard with wings of a fowl, the Greek Empire; and fourth, the mouth with iron teeth, the Roman Empire. He also saw in his last vision “a ram and a goat,” referring to two great powers arising “at the time of the end.” Having understood that the references made by Daniel were in direct relation with
the geographical shapes of these nations, I began to search for the ram and the goat…

Through original compositions, astral photography, and maps of the nations, Bloise explores the meaning behind Daniel’s vision, and what he discovers of the identity of the ram and the goat is both astounding and deeply moving. The Shape is an entrancing study that will have you looking at the universe and the world around you in a whole new way.
