Qoheleth is a book in the Post-Self cycle. It was written by Madison Scott-Clary and contains the bonus novella Gallery Exhibition: A Love Story. The title refers to Qohelet (or "Ecclesiastes" in translation), the teacher and narrator from the book in the Bible by the same name.

Back copy

“All artists search. I search for stories, in this post-self age. What happens when you can no longer call yourself an individual, when you have split your sense of self among several instances? How do you react? Do you withdraw into yourself, become a hermit? Do you expand until you lose all sense of identity? Do you fragment? Do you go about it deliberately, or do you let nature and chance take their course?”

With immersive technology at its peak, it’s all too easy to get lost. When RJ loses emself in that virtual world, not only must ey find eir way out, but find all the answers ey can along the way.

And, nearly a century on, society still struggles with the ramifications of those answers.

Place within the cycle

Although Qoheleth was initially listed as "book I in the Post-Self cycle", It serves largely as a prequel to the trilogy that is ToledotNevi'imMitzvot. For this reason, there is a compelling argument that it should be read after either Nevi'im or Mitzvot.

Due to the ways in which it introduces the mechanics and society of the System, Gallery Exhibition serves as an excellent first work to read.
