Childhood and Early Interests
Richard Scott Rahn was raised on an Illinois farm during the 1960s.

His early years were spent on curiosities and questioning what was accepted by many and why things often are.
Richard Scott Rahn would grow up blessed with unending curiosity. He loves to work over and analyze any new information that it takes in. But he also recognized that it is a curse as he came to question the why of almost everything in humanity’s world and the belief systems that govern those ideas and phenomena.
It would also follow that Richard Scott Rahn is a lover of the outdoors. He is fascinated by the world’s remaining wild places and longs for adventures and opportunities these places can offer. Although Rahn considers himself a brooding loner by nature, he loves meeting and interacting with people from all over the world.
He is interested in what they have to say, the belief systems they embrace, their ideas, ideals, and how they shaped them. He is also deeply interested in art, music of all types, theatre, including film (even bad films) because they imitate life and illustrate what humanity is really capable of.
“I am not one to dwell on “the good old days,” but am more apt to plan and look forward to my life’s next adventure. “ – Richard Scott Rahn.
As an adult, Rahn spent time studying the cultures, histories, literature, religions and their texts, and even the legends of the world. During this time, he began to stumble over what he thought at first was a mere concept, and Rahn was nicknamed “ It. “ Eventually, Rahn believes that this It is real, and it exists everywhere and across all time if you look with an open mind. This discovery led to further research and study and would later form the basis for his most outstanding work, The Book of It.

According to Rahn, his work wanders across various points of view not commonly presented in the modern world.

“A presentation of unspoken of and at times at first unbelievable theories, text quotes, and ideas that all too often, if they are talked of today are dismissed as mere legend and conspiracy theories.”
