This interdisciplinary book probes the subject of extraterrestrial intelligent life, offering scientific and technological implications, discussing the philosophical and religious connotations and rebuffing pseudo-scientific assertions such as ‘rare earth’. The author discusses such philosophical questions as: What is intelligence? What is consciousness? Should we expect ETIs to be conscious beings? Also discussed is the viability of future astronautics which would enable closer human contact with ETI.

Book Short Summary:

This open access book chronicles the rise of a new scientific paradigm offering novel insights into the age-old enigmas of existence. Over 300 years ago, the human mind discovered the machine code of reality: mathematics. By utilizing abstract thought systems, humans began to decode the workings of the cosmos. From this understanding, the current scientific paradigm emerged, ultimately discovering the gift of technology. Today, however, our island of knowledge is surrounded by ever longer shores of ignorance. Science appears to have hit a dead end when confronted with the nature of reality and consciousness. In this fascinating and accessible volume, James Glattfelder explores a radical paradigm shift uncovering the ontology of reality. It is found to be information-theoretic and participatory, yielding a computational and programmable universe.

Book Short Summary:

Motionless, Suzanne gazed across the river at exploding images of destruction and despair as the city she called home had just been shattered. Staring at the billows of smoke that now engulfed downtown, she realized that the world had changed forever. This was not a scene from some far away war torn place. This was New York City. Her country's freedom now under attack, Suzanne finds herself without a job and without a purpose. Finding a severance notice in her inbox, she leaves behind her comfortable executive lifestyle and journeys alone beyond her comfort zone to liberate her spirit and claim personal freedom. Traveling with a sense of adventure in her heart and only what possessions she can carry in a backpack, she finds her way to the far corners of the world where few have ventured. Suzanne takes us on a rich, personal odyssey, returning home one year later to Ground Zero where it all began. As she returns to her beloved city, she is filled with renewed purpose, a broader perspective of the world, and a greater understanding of herself and humanity.

Book Short Summary:

Over 42 million adults struggle with chronic loneliness, if you are one of them, this book will offer you some instant relief! As of 2017, approximately 42.6 million adults over age 45 struggle with feelings of chronic loneliness. Twenty-five percent of the population lives alone, and over 50% of the population is unmarried. Results from a recent study of 300,000 participants prove that individuals with weak or non-existent social connections actually increase their risk of early death by up to 50%. As a result of these shocking statistics, more social outreach programs have been put in place to help conquer this nearly-imminent worldwide loneliness epidemic. Since life began, we have had a strong sense of belonging. Whether to a small family or a large community group, this fundamental need powerfully affects our mental and physical health. However, even if we interact with co-workers all day, surround ourselves with a large family, and are in a decades-long marriage, we can still feel very alone. With the click of a button or the help of social media, within seconds we are provided with more opportunities than ever before; among these opportunities are thousands of ways to connect to fellow human beings. Logically we know that reaching out for help is key in combatting this deep and pervasive feeling, yet we don't do it. Why? Typically, we dislike admitting to ourselves and others that we feel lonely for fear we may appear unlikeable and vulnerable. Moreover, we have been conditioned as a society to not show our feelings. Instead, we try to ignore our uncomfortable thoughts and emotions, hoping they will go away on their own. They usually don't. Consequently, we feel anxious and rejected as if a fence separates us from the popular crowd, thereby allowing us to secretly obsess over our perceived defects. Despite all of us having an innate need to connect with our fellow humans, the degree of that need varies. For example, you may feel lonely when not around other people. On the other hand, I may feel completely exhausted when I am. Yet, despite our individual differences, our DNA strands are programmed to satisfy our need for belonging, whatever our unique need is. Perhaps you feel that you are not really lonely, just socially selective. Find out via the included questionnaire. Then, to help you combat loneliness, the personal insights from these authors will help provide you with hope and inspiration; the tools they used to guide themselves out of the emotional quicksand and just may be the life jacket you've been searching for. Whether down the street or across the world, you are truly never alone because also inside of this book, are the ways in which you can reach out to each author individually for continued support.

Book Short Summary:

The poetry of Woo Myung, who tells us, “The man is the Truth and the Universe; all things are one.” As the beautiful verses are read and savored, it is possible to naturally enlighten to the fact that once one cleanses his minds and escapes from his conceptions and habits, and only then, is it possible to live with wisdom in a world of oneness and heaven. Woo Myung’s writings show what kind of influence poetry can have on readers when it is written from a place of pure consciousness. With each word, the deep and clear true mind seeps in, leaving only the pure essence of the Truth behind after the reading is done. While there is no doctrine to the poetry persuading readers to the writer’s own point of view, they do have a clear topic. Like his consciousness, life and teachings, the motivation behind his poetry is love, making his verses a comfort and a joy to read.

Book Short Summary:

Shelley's detractors since Hazlitt have noticed a division in the 'self' of his poems. A central reasoning core fears the passions surrounding it and distrusts the language expressing it. A few of his admirers offer an alternative view of the poems as symbolical pointers to a non-linguistic reality transcending passion; most miss the point, justifying their admiration by referring to the poems' systems of thought. This reading of Shelley's major poems and critical prose finds the adverse case more convincing.

Book Short Summary:

From the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a domestic comedy that examines slavery, Protestant theology, and gender differences in early America. First published in 1859, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s third novel is set in eighteenth-century Newport, Rhode Island, a community known for its engagement in both religious piety and the slave trade. Mary Scudder lives in a modest farmhouse with her widowed mother an their boarder, Samuel Hopkins, a famous Calvinist theologian who preaches against slavery. Mary is in love with the passionate James Marvyn, but Mary is devout and James is a skeptic, and Mary’s mother opposes the union. James goes to sea, and when he is reportedly drowned, Mary is persuaded to become engaged to Dr. Hopkins. With colorful characters, including many based on real figures, and a plot that hinges on romance, The Minister’s Wooing combines comedy with regional history to show the convergence of daily life, slavery, and religion in post-Revolutionary New England.

Book Short Summary:

Before the sun could shine again, it rained, and rained, and rained. Darkening my very heart, and causing me great pain. I searched my soul for many years, to repair the damage that was done. Before I saw a rainbow, and could walk into the sun. Courageous Butterfly is written as inspiration to those living life in fear, stress, depression, and chronic anxiety. It is for those who wonder where they came from, who they are, and what the meaning of life is. Sometimes our lives spin out of control in ways we would never expect. We search for answers, sometimes feeling discouraged, confused, and alone, but we never have to feel abandoned. Where there is faith, There is love. Where there is love, There is God.

Book Short Summary:

What is human existence like when experienced through the Cosmic Consciousness of an astral traveler? To observe Earth from the outside is to discover an entirely new world. Inspired by a vision, Liquid Mind is written from the perspective of an astral traveler who exists in another reality and decides to have a human experience. This mixture of allegorical fiction and philosophical analysis is a parable for the Planetary Human. Before coming to Earth, the voyager has access to all Universal knowledge. At birth, perspective shifts, and humanity's confusion is revealed. The visitor has never experienced fear, but must in order to understand human emotions. Why has humanity created fears-as the UniVerse is One Verse and fear is unnecessary? Why do humans feel separate from the Creator? Human fears are the inherited thoughts of primordial awareness. If this is recognized, concepts can be redefined to understand why the ancient visions that became humanity's great religions are incompatible with present reality. Liquid Mind helps readers remember Life beyond Earth-in multidimensional realities. Humans understand Consciousness through localized realities, and this book raises questions and presents possibilities that can enable a person to be fearless when dealing with human issues.

Book Short Summary:

Our lives are composed of millions of choices, ranging from trivial to life-changing and momentous. Luckily, our brains have evolved a number of mental shortcuts, biases, and tricks that allow us to quickly negotiate this endless array of decisions. We don’t want to rationally deliberate every choice we make, and thanks to these cognitive rules of thumb, we don’t need to. Yet these hard-wired shortcuts, mental wonders though they may be, can also be perilous. They can distort our thinking in ways that are often invisible to us, leading us to make poor decisions, to be easy targets for manipulators…and they can even cost us our lives. The truth is, despite all the buzz about the power of gut-instinct decision-making in recent years, sometimes it’s better to stop and say, “On second thought . . .” The trick, of course, lies in knowing when to trust that instant response, and when to question it. In On Second Thought, acclaimed science writer Wray Herbert provides the first guide to achieving that balance. Drawing on real-world examples and cutting-edge research, he takes us on a fascinating, wide-ranging journey through our innate cognitive traps and tools, exposing the hidden dangers lurking in familiarity and consistency; the obstacles that keep us from accurately evaluating risk and value; the delusions that make it hard for us to accurately predict the future; the perils of the human yearning for order and simplicity; the ways our fears can color our very perceptions . . . and much more. Along the way, Herbert reveals the often-bizarre cross-connections these shortcuts have secretly ingrained in our brains, answering such questions as why jury decisions may be shaped by our ancient need for cleanliness; what the state of your desk has to do with your political preferences; why loneliness can literally make us shiver; how drawing two dots on a piece of paper can desensitize us to violence… and how the very typeface on this page is affecting your decision about whether or not to buy this book. Ultimately, On Second Thought is both a captivating exploration of the workings of the mind and an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to learn how to make smarter, better judgments every day.

Book Short Summary:

'An alternately funny and moving book about the most important art form on Planet Earth. Destined to become a classic (pun intended)' Jarvis Cocker Music critic and writer Paul Morley weaves together memoir and history in a spiralling tale that establishes classical music as the most rebellious genre of all. Paul Morley had stopped being surprised by modern pop music and found himself retreating into the sounds of artists he loved when, as an emerging music journalist in the 70s, he wrote for NME. But not wishing to give in to dreary nostalgia, endlessly circling back to the bands he wrote about in the past, he went searching for something new, rare and wondrous – and found it in classical music. A soaring polemic, a grumpy reflection on modern rock, and a fan's love note, A Sound Mind rejects the idea that classical music is establishment; old; a drag. Instead, the book reveals this genre to be the most exciting and varied in music. A Sound Mind is a multi-layered memoir of Morley's shifting musical tastes, but it is also a compelling history of classical music that reveals the genre's rich and often deviant past – and, hopefully, future. Like a conductor, Morley weaves together timelines and timeframes in an orchestral narrative that declares the transformative and resilient power of classical music from Bach to Shostakovich, Brahms to Birtwistle, Mozart to Cage, travelling from eighteenth century salons to the modern age of Spotify.

Book Short Summary:

This book was originally a blog/diary. I decided to bring it together as a story (not quite exactly my story, but bits and pieces of it) so other people living with these emotions of obsession and devotion, obliteration, etc. can know they are not alone. Very few people know how to deal with these feelings, especially if they are feeling them for the first time. This story was definitely my first time feeling this, and I was definitely lost. I poured my heart out into this book, and wrote most of it while I was having these emotions, not out of memory. They are very raw, pure, and I did my best not to censor my thoughts so the reader can feel the pureness of the mind. I definitely exaggerated, but only where I felt necessary. Nothing is exact. Characters may or may not have actually existed, and may have been invented to provide for the plot. All of this situations in this book, even though they may be based on real life events, are entirely fictional. Any and all emotions may have been exaggerated. The obsessive feelings and thoughts have definitely been exaggerated for the drama and tension of the book. This book does not contain advice. It is merely an experience. Something I feel everyone should go through that no one deserves. It’s a whole other kind of pain from physical.

Book Short Summary:

Alan Watts is "the perfect guide for a course correction in life, away from materialism and its empty promise" (Deepak Chopra). Here he shows us how—in an age of unprecedented anxiety—we must embrace the present and live fully in the now in order to live a fulfilling life. Spending all our time trying to anticipate and plan for the future and to lamenting the past, we forget to embrace the here and now. We are so concerned with tomorrow that we forget to enjoy today. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not—and cannot—know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing. “Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Watts had the rare gift of ‘writing beautifully the unwritable.’” —Los Angeles Times

Book Short Summary:

In The Ashgate Research Companion to Thomas Hardy, some of the most prominent Hardy specialists working today offer an overview of Hardy scholarship and suggest new directions in Hardy studies. The contributors cover virtually every area relevant to Hardy's fiction and poetry, including philosophy, palaeontology, biography, science, film, popular culture, beliefs, gender, music, masculinity, tragedy, topography, psychology, metaphysics, illustration, bibliographical studies and contemporary response. While several collections have surveyed the Hardy landscape, no previous volume has been composed especially for scholars and advanced graduate students. This companion is specially designed to aid original research on Hardy and serve as the critical basis for Hardy studies in the new millennium. Among the features are a comprehensive bibliography that includes not only works in English but, in acknowledgment of Hardy's explosion in popularity around the world, also works in languages other than English.

Book Short Summary:

This early work by G. K. Chesterton was originally published in 1925 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. In this book, Chesterton explores the relationship between Evolution and Christianity, the growth and role of the Church, as well as providing an in-depth analysis of Paganism. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He studied at the Slade School of Art, and upon graduating began to work as a freelance journalist. By 1905, he had a regular and popular column with the Illustrated London News, and began to write on an array of topics. Over the course of his life, his literary output was incredibly diverse and highly prolific, ranging from philosophy and ontology to art criticism and detective fiction. However, he is probably best-remembered for his Christian apologetics, most notably in The Everlasting Man.

Book Short Summary:

All the contributors to this compilation knew Bion personally and were influenced by his work. They include: Herbert Rosenfeld, Frances Tustin, Andre Green, Donald Meltzer and Hanna Segal.Wilfred R. Bion has taken his place as one of the foremost psychoanalysts of our time, yet it is only within recent years that the impact of his achievements are being felt. His death has stilled his pen and voice but demands a restatement of his view by those who have been most influenced by him. Bion's greatness lay, not only in the odd vertices of his incredible observations, but in the resources of his epistemological vastness, his respect for truth obtained in the disciplined absence of memory and desire, and his paying such scrupulous attention to and interpreting of recombinant constructions he achieved with mental elements their functions, and their transformations. His was the Language of Achievement, which is the tongue begotten by patience. Of note is his introduction of Plato's theory of forms and Kant's categories into psychoanalytic metapsychology, to say nothing of his mathematical, group and religious theories.
