Cheeky Fest is an arts festival launching in London, comprising

an OPERA in progress - story by Chris Eales, music by Rupert Cheek (@WAKTM)

Chris Eales’ We All Know Too Much arrived in my Inbox via the “Highway” that was the "Internet" in 2006. In April 2009 I asked him to explain how he came to write it:

"Studying Philosophy & Theology led me (as it has done for so many other troubled souls throughout history) to a sort of existential confusion, bordering on despair, and so I remained for many years, haunted by the ghosts of Descartes & Aristotle, and caught in the dilemma faced by any man who, like me, is in possession of a first-class imagination, but a second-class mind! Slowly but surely, the rigours of rationality and certainty, were replaced by the illusions & delusions of literature & art, and I fell in love with dreamers & romantics like Ray Bradbury & Anne Rice, leading me to a more positive, more beautiful appreciation of life.

Questions as to the nature of consciousness, and the future of Humanity led me (like Asimov and others in the great pantheon of Science Fiction), to write a book based in the future, that wondered how Mankind might progress. My Theology background, and my fascination & indignation as to the horrors of fanaticism & religious fundamentalism, meant that these themes crept into the book as well. The title of the book & main character came (literally) from a dream I had in August 2006. The title was intended both as a description of the characters in the book, whose knowledge gets them into terrible trouble, and also as a description of Mankind, and how knowing, learning and progressing (too much?) leads us inevitably to keep reaching, searching, and growing towards a destiny that none of us can really know, or guarantee.

We all know too much"
