More About This Title A Million Monkeys


Why are we here? What are we supposed to do on this earth? Who created us?

Humankind has struggled with these questions for millennia. We’ve created complex societies, religions, and theories to answer them, but we’ve ignored the simple truth. Dennis Patrick Treece shares this truth with readers of all faiths and persuasions. Treece was in an airplane when he first heard the voice of a spirit guide. The voice told him that he needed a pen and paper because he was going to write something important down. A Million Monkeys is the message that followed.

Treece wants to remind readers that they are special. It took billions of individual chemical and biological events for humanity to develop into its current state. Yet many have no concept of the uniqueness of their existence. They waste their precious time in cycles of hate and anger. Treece encourages readers to find a different way to celebrate the Creator and his creation. He inspires everyone to dedicate their lives and their time to love. It is through love that the current course of humanity can be changed so that we can be in harmony with the rest of the universe.


Dennis retired from the Army in 2000, after thirty years, and five wars, if you count The Cold War and the Global War on Terror, to Vietnam, Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and the Peacekeeping mission in the Balkans. He is a retired Army Colonel, a combat wounded veteran, and not at all religious. The first part of his life was entirely conventional. He grew up in a non-religious Navy family, living around the country and around the world, and his father retired in Phoenix, Arizona when he was in the seventh grade. After graduation from Arizona State University Dennis went into the Army via the ROTC program and his first tour was in Vietnam where he was wounded by enemy mortar fire. He served for thirty years, half of which was overseas, and participated in the Gulf War and the peacekeeping operation in the Balkans. He was the US Army’s first “Cyber Cop” and when he retired as a full colonel in 2000 he went to work in the cyber security business. After the tragedy of 9/11 he was hired by a major city Port Authority to run the security program for three airports and the city’s seaports. As he got older things in his life changed. He married an artist with a PsyD and ordination as a minister in the Church of Spiritualism. He became a Reiki Master and studied spiritual things while being “coached” through the contents of what would become the book A Million Monkeys.
He found the whole thing difficult to accept, but finally translated the thoughts from these Spirits and published the book. Dennis accepted his role as Narrator of the story, not the originator, and wrote the book in the second person, since it is essentially a lecture to Humanity by a Spirit describing itself as a “Super Soul of great magnitude”. It should not be seen as religious although it covers religious subjects. And it should not be seen as the enemy of established religion. They are what they are and as creations of Mankind, are understandably flawed however well intentioned. Essentially they get it about 60% right. If you are looking for the answers, that is the actual answers to Genesis and the Meaning of Life, this is the book you need to read. The next book, The Crown of Happenstance, uses elements from the Million Monkeys story and creates the sister planet Shonak, and the character Bon. The third book, soon to be published, is called It's About Time, and fully examines Bon's relationship with Earth and also the matter of TIme. What is it, exactly? It has no weight, color, size, sound, feel - but it is real enough, or is it? Read the book to find out.

A Million Monkeys is a fascinating book that provides a thought-provoking perspective of why we exist and what happens to us (our souls) when we pass from this life. Through his enlightenment and experiences with a Spirit Guide, the author clearly articulates that what we with do in life through our thoughts, words and deeds will determine the destiny of us (our souls) in the after life. He explains the creation of the universe and life by tying various concepts like the Bible's Genesis and the Big Bang Theory into one interesting, meaningful view. You will learn in this book that the existence of everything is all a part of a bigger purpose. No matter what faith or religion you follow, this book will make you ponder about your own existence, your purpose in the grand scheme of things, and what happens to you in the after life.

The author tackles a complex subject in a simple format. The goal and purpose of human life is explained in a short narrative. Much easier to read than A Course in Miracles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful Imagery!
Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2016
I normally do not buy these types of books, but was hooked by the title. The writing is excellent and transports you through the imagery of the writer's words. No judgements of the reader is made as to their beliefs and people of all faiths will find value in its message. I only wish it was longer, this is something I will read often.
