Book Excerpt :

This achingly beautiful novel considers how to measure love when it has the power to both save and destroy. Levon Grady and Samantha Vash are both students at an alternative high school for high-achieving but troubled teens. They have been chosen for a year-long project where they write their life stories and collect interviews from people who know them. The only rule is 100% confidentiality—they will share their work only with each other. What happens will transform their lives. Told from the perspectives of Levon, Sam, and all the people who know them best, this is a love story infused with science and the exploration of identity. In Love Is Both Wave and Particle, Paul Cody looks at how love behaves in different situations, and how it can shed light on even the darkest heart. Praise for Love is Both Wave and Particle: "[A] series of first-person narratives from the teens’ parents, classmates, and counselor . . . offer varied perspectives on Sam and quiet, handsome Levon Grady, who is “maybe somewhere on the broad spectrum of Asperger’s,” as he puts it. . . . Part romance, part psychological study, adult author Cody’s first book for teens thoughtfully conveys Sam and Levon’s complex mental states, the evolution of their relationship, and their journeys of self-discovery." —Publishers Weekly

Book Short Summary:

Broadly speaking transhumanism refers to a philosophy whose focus is to move beyond current human limits. This book suggests an approach to transhumanism based on a perception of Light elaborated in the previous nine books in the Cosmology of Light book series. In this perception light is envisioned as existing at different constant speeds. We know that in our physical universe light travels at a constant speed referred to as ‘c’, of 186,000 miles per second. This has a concrete bearing on how we experience time and space, and on how matter arises, and in a Cosmology of Light it can be said that light at c is an intentionality to filter infinite potentiality from Light’s native state of traveling infinitely fast, so life can arise in a particular way. So, imagine light traveling infinitely fast. This would suggest another reality packed with infinite possibility due to Light’s omnipresence, omnipotence, omniscience, and omninurturing fourfoldness. Omnipresence, because Light would be instantaneously present in whatever volume considered. Omnipotence, because anything not of the nature of light will be overcome by it. Omniscience, because light being everywhere will know what arises or disappears in it. Omninurturing, because all would exist in one nature and be bound by it. As the previous books have elaborated, and as this book will adequately summarize, a cosmology arises when we consider the simultaneous and interpenetrating realities created when Light exists at multiple constant speeds simultaneously. The dynamics and information resident in each of these simultaneous realities is arbitrated into material reality through a constant and persistent quantum-level computation that generates genetic-type information that effectively becomes “law”. Quanta in such a cosmology is perceived as being the mechanism by which information in faster-moving layers of light is materialized in a slower-moving layer of light. “Law” manifests as quadrumvirate mechanisms such as space-time-energy-gravity, the electro-magnetic-wavearchetype-masspotential spectrum, quark-lepton-boson-Higgsboson particles, ‘s’shell-‘p’shell’-‘d’shell-‘f’shell atoms, nucleicacid-lipid-protein-polysaccharide cells, amongst other mechanisms, that derive their ability to “become” based on the native “being” of Light’s omnipresent-omnipotent-omniscient-omninurturing fourfoldness. It may even be said that such “becomings” resulting in quadrumvirate-based law, reveal essential “beings”. Hence a being or a particular kind of taxonomic classification akin to the species-genus-family-order-class-phylum-kingdom-domain as in the hierarchy of life, is revealed with successful becoming. Plate 1, that follows shortly, summarizes such a classification by way of a contemplative map of being. Hence Light in its native state, traveling with infinite speed, may be thought of as sitting at the top of such a taxonomic hierarchy generating light-based domains, kingdoms, phyla, classes, and so on. But, such fourfoldness that manifests as effective law, or through the becoming involving persistent quantum-level computation that reveals a being, is none other than a triumph of love. For it is only the power of love, of that innate need to maintain the integrality of light’s fourfoldness even as it continues to materialize, that can be the foundation of a sustainable becoming. The more powerful such love, so that in any materialization there is integration not only of the fourfoldness of Light’s implicit properties, but also of an integration of the many layers of light existing at different speeds, the more fully will a becoming be founded on completeness of potentiality in light to itself become a being capable of engendering light-based life. Hence, as will be suggested in this book, not only does a particular ‘type’ of being engender vast variation within that type, but further, beings can combine with beings, which is essentially an act of love, to create more comprehensive beings resulting in all the complexity of life. Life itself will be seen to originate in the native state of Light, adding function and variation as light precipitates into more and more material reality emerging as a fullness of life. At the base of all possible variation and advancement in being, becoming, and life, is the ability to influence the process of the persistent quantum-level computation so that there is a more complete horizontal and vertical integration of Light - a more complete light-based-singularity as it were - and therefore of the output of genetic-type information and consequently of laws that are active in a being’s becoming. This is what is considered to be the basis of a system or framework of transhumanism in a cosmology of light.

Book Short Summary:

A 'Philosofree' of Love, science, art, community, non-judgment, wonder, mystery and joy. Welcome to the paradigm of Universal Intentional Love Energy, which has the fortunate acronym of UILE (an ancient Irish word for ‘All’ or ‘Whole’). Energy is what the entire universe is made from, and Philosofree identifies UILE as the source of all intentional motivation, intuition, love, compassion, creativity etc. This book by Phil "Philosofree" Cheney initially explains how modern science and psychology helps us understand our true nature, and then shows practical ways to mine the message streams, to dig using them to get to the diamond inside each one of us, and to shine again. Energizing Love shows how UILE can be found both in science and each of the major religions, and how important it is for us to return to the community of universal Love, without boundaries, rejection or judgment; to return to our true authentic being; to get home again, home free! Full of stories, poems, myths, and wisdom, this book is intended to connect you personally to the oldest and most powerful energy source, and help UILE shine from within you.

Book Short Summary:

Goswami’s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but is also the key to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics is an antidote to the moral sterility and mechanistic approach of scientific materialism and is the best and clearest approach to understanding our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. Here in 17 chapters, Dr. Goswami and his friends and colleagues discuss, among other things, how quantum physics affects our understanding of: Zen Thoughts, feelings, and intuitions Dreams Karma, death, and reincarnation God’s will, evolution, and purpose The meaning of dreams The spiritualization of economics and business, politics and education, and society itself This fascinating new book will appeal to a wide array of readers, ranging from those interested in the new physics to those captivated by the spiritual implications of the latest scientific breakthroughs.

Book Short Summary:

Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the physical world, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the general public. Here Feynman provides a classic and definitive introduction to QED (namely, quantum electrodynamics), that part of quantum field theory describing the interactions of light with charged particles. Using everyday language, spatial concepts, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, Feynman clearly and humorously communicates both the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson. A. Zee's introduction places Feynman’s book and his seminal contribution to QED in historical context and further highlights Feynman’s uniquely appealing and illuminating style.

Book Short Summary:

The text is a conversation between the author and himself mediated by the text of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The text is a pre-text, a reading both before and after that frames the art work. What is that? Let us say, in the spirit of inquiry, that of knowing thyself. What, then, of this strange hyphenation? The present text is a pre-text because it is before the Text, the text which the author is always writing but which manifests itself, in sporadic, impulsive bursts, in the form of actual works. The book is the pre-text because it is an excuse, a rationale, a piece of pretension. The book is not about Nietzsche but what it is for someone to read Nietzsche’s text, a book for everyone and no one. How then does one read a book meant for oneself, if oneself is everyone, and not at all for oneself, if oneself is none? Or is it that the real task of reading is for the reader to read what reading is? Then again, need one distinguish between book and text? Perhaps, it is impossible to read a book such as Thus Spoke Zarathustra without invoking the text --or even sub-text – that continually slips away. If one can read a book, one cannot the text for this reason: the text is what the reader has to write through the reading. This has been my experience with Nietzsche’s text, an experience I share with my readers. The very possibility of reading invokes the need to re-write the text. Only in the space between reading and writing can the reader/re-writer hope to stand and understand the discursive grounds. Is that the play which this couplet performs? There, does not the reader enters upon the playground. Read then and play! The author's thanks go to Mr. Andrew Fuyarchuk for the fine editing job that he did. His contribution allowed further clarifications of the argument.

The Love, Peace, Health, Inside and Perspicacity: Book 11 By: Ninh Vinh Loi Today, with the comfortable and convenient living we have, we feel happy with the way we are. But we may forget the time when we human beings were living in just a few hundred years ago. It’s completely different, isn’t it? With the contributions of all of the scientists around the world we have what we have now. But when we look toward the future, we foresee that we have a lot of troubles ahead. The resources of our earth are drying up every day. The problem of our population is growing rapidly. A nuclear war can happen accidentally and so on and on. We are working hard to find the solution for all our problems. We know that scientists around the world are trying to find out the root of the universe and from that they create the technologies, following up through the philosophies and experiments. We know that philosophy is just a theory with a lot of assumptions and any experiements have very limited results. We need more and more experiments. So far we have the Large Hadron Collider in Europe. But the result turns out we have more questions and problems added to the previous problems we had. What is dark matter? The black hole? What came before the Big Bang? Will the “God Particle” destroy the universe?

  • Pdf File: the-quantum-love-of-god.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The book reveals that the science of Quantum Physics can bring clarity and understanding of the love of God and how He can have complete knowledge of all things yet not hinder free will. The Quantum Love of God is what makes Christianity completely different and unique from all the other religions in the world because it is the only religion where Jesus Christ, who is love Himself, comes to dwell within each willing heart when He is invited to. The book takes an insightful look at Quantum Physics and separates the objective science of Quantum Physics from the subjective mystical and spiritual interpretations and then compares them with what the Bible has to say on this subject. The book does not attempt to combine the latest discoveries of Quantum Physics with Christian doctrine to show that theology and science fit together very comfortably, or to prove scientifically that God exists.

Book Short Summary:

A rising star in philosophy examines the cultural, social, and scientific interpretations of love to answer one of our most enduring questions What is love? Aside from being the title of many a popular love song, this is one of life's perennial questions. In What Love Is, philosopher Carrie Jenkins offers a bold new theory on the nature of romantic love that reconciles its humanistic and scientific components. Love can be a social construct (the idea of a perfect fairy tale romance) and a physical manifestation (those anxiety- inducing heart palpitations); we must recognize its complexities and decide for ourselves how to love. Motivated by her own polyamorous relationships, she examines the ways in which our parameters of love have recently changed-to be more accepting of homosexual, interracial, and non-monogamous relationships-and how they will continue to evolve in the future. Full of anecdotal, cultural, and scientific reflections on love, What Love Is is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand what it means to say "I love you." Whether young or old, gay or straight, male or female, polyamorous or monogamous, this book will help each of us decide for ourselves how we choose to love.

Book Short Summary:

Of all human inventions, the mirror is perhaps the one most closely connected to our own consciousness. As our first technology for contemplation of the self, the mirror is arguably as important an invention as the wheel. Mirror Mirror is the fascinating story of the mirror's invention, refinement, and use in an astonishing range of human activities -- from the fantastic mirrored rooms that wealthy Romans created for their orgies to the mirror's key role in the use and understanding of light. Pendergrast spins tales of the 2,500year mystery of whether Archimedes and his "burning mirror" really set faraway Roman ships on fire; the medieval Venetian glassmakers, who perfected the technique of making large, flat mirrors from clear glass and for whom any attempt to leave their cloistered island was punishable by death; Isaac Newton, whose experiments with sunlight on mirrors once left him blinded for three days; the artist David Hockney, who holds controversial ideas about Renaissance artists and their use of optical devices; and George Ellery Hale, the manic-depressive astronomer and telescope enthusiast who inspired (and gave his name to) the twentieth century's largest ground-based telescope. Like mirrors themselves, Mirror Mirror is a book of endless wonder and fascination.

Book Short Summary:

In the dozen years since the first edition appeared, there has been a great advance in understanding of the Earth's deep interior. This is not because there have been breakthroughs in understanding, or even many changes of ideas, but largely because of many small advances, often the result of improved tech niques. This has led to a complete revision of the book. For instance, we have a much better idea of how the cloud of gas that formed the Solar Nebula evolved into the Sun and the planets, and of the chemical processes that accompanied its evolution and determined the mix of elements in the Earth. We have a better understanding of convection and how plates are an essential part of it, and how it is accompanied by chemical processes that have extracted the materials to build continents. Although the major variation within the Earth is radial, improved geophysical and geochemical techniques have made progress in investigating and under standing the lateral heterogeneities, and it is encouraging that when geochemists and geophysicists talk about lateral heterogeneities they can sometimes be referring to the same thing. Plumes have become very fashionable as the cause of hot-spot magmatism and associated geochemical anomalies, probably origi nating at the base of the mantle (though clear evidence for their existence is lacking).

Book Short Summary:

The untold story of the heretical thinkers who dared to question the nature of our quantum universe Every physicist agrees quantum mechanics is among humanity's finest scientific achievements. But ask what it means, and the result will be a brawl. For a century, most physicists have followed Niels Bohr's Copenhagen interpretation and dismissed questions about the reality underlying quantum physics as meaningless. A mishmash of solipsism and poor reasoning, Copenhagen endured, as Bohr's students vigorously protected his legacy, and the physics community favored practical experiments over philosophical arguments. As a result, questioning the status quo long meant professional ruin. And yet, from the 1920s to today, physicists like John Bell, David Bohm, and Hugh Everett persisted in seeking the true meaning of quantum mechanics. What Is Real? is the gripping story of this battle of ideas and the courageous scientists who dared to stand up for truth.

Book Short Summary:

The renowned French philosopher’s “ode to love’s power to unite in the face of eternity, and its optimism in the face of pain” (Publishers Weekly). In a world rife with consumerism, where online dating promises risk-free romance and love is all too often seen as a mere variant of desire and hedonism, Alain Badiou believes that love is under threat. Taking to heart Rimbaud’s famous line “love needs reinventing,” In Praise of Love is the celebrated French intellectual’s passionate treatise in defense of love. For Badiou, love is an existential project, a constantly unfolding quest for truth. This quest begins with the chance encounter, an event that forever changes two individuals, challenging them “to see the world from the point of view of two rather than one.” This, Badiou believes, is love’s most essential transforming power. Through thought-provoking dialogue edited from a conversation between Badiou and Truong, a vibrant cast of thinkers are invoked: Kierkegaard, Plato, de Beauvoir, Proust and more create a new narrative of love in the face of twenty-first-century modernity. Moving, zealous, and wise, Badiou’s “paean to the anticapitalist, antiessentialist, unifying power of love” urges us not to fear it but to see it as a magnificent undertaking that compels us to explore others and to move away from an obsession with ourselves (Publishers Weekly). “Finally, the cure for the pornographic, utilitarian exchange of favors to which love has been reduced in America. Alain Badiou is our philosopher of love.” —Simon Critchley, author of The Faith of the Faithless

Book Short Summary:

This book is an introductory text to a range of numerical methods used today to simulate time-dependent processes in Earth science, physics, engineering, and many other fields. The physical problem of elastic wave propagation in 1D serves as a model system with which the various numerical methods are introduced and compared. The theoretical background is presented with substantial graphical material supporting the concepts. The results can be reproduced with the supplementary electronic material provided as python codes embedded in Jupyter notebooks. The book starts with a primer on the physics of elastic wave propagation, and a chapter on the fundamentals of parallel programming, computational grids, mesh generation, and hardware models. The core of the book is the presentation of numerical solutions of the wave equation with six different methods: 1) the finite-difference method; 2) the pseudospectral method (Fourier and Chebyshev); 3) the linear finite-element method; 4) the spectral-element method; 5) the finite-volume method; and 6) the discontinuous Galerkin method. Each chapter contains comprehension questions, theoretical, and programming exercises. The book closes with a discussion of domains of application and criteria for the choice of a specific numerical method, and the presentation of current challenges.

Book Short Summary:

The importance of personal storytelling in contemporary culture and politics In an age where our experiences are processed and filtered through a wide variety of mediums, both digital and physical, how do we tell our own story? How do we “get a life,” make sense of who we are and the way we live, and communicate that to others? Stories of the Self takes the literary study of autobiography and opens it up to a broad and fascinating range of material practices beyond the book, investigating the manifold ways people are documenting themselves in contemporary culture. Anna Poletti explores Andy Warhol’s Time Capsules, a collection of six hundred cardboard boxes filled with text objects from the artist’s everyday life; the mid-aughts crowdsourced digital archive PostSecret; queer zine culture and its practices of remixing and collaging; and the bureaucratic processes surrounding surveillance dossiers. Stories of the Self argues that while there is a strong emphasis on the importance of personal storytelling in contemporary culture and politics, mediation is just as important in establishing the credibility and legibility of life writing. Poletti argues that the very media used for writing our lives intrinsically shapes how we are seen to matter.

Book Short Summary:

This book addresses the incentives for nations to develop nuclear weapons and the technical expertise needed for that purpose. Ballistic missiles are required by any nation wanting to optimize the effectiveness of deterrence and the threat derived from possessing nuclear weapons. The basic science of ballistic missile programs is discussed using the North Korean program as an example, although to some extent the programs of other countries are also covered. In addition, there is an introduction to the basics of nuclear weapons technology.Unlike most books on these topics, this one includes, besides the technical component, the policy aspects surrounding nuclear weapons. It also shows how nuclear weapons can — and have — stabilized conflicts, discussing why the concept of deterrence may not always be relied upon to prevent war. The origin of terrorism in the Middle East and the possibility of nuclear terrorism originating from that region are other topics of interest.

Book Short Summary:

Engineering rock mechanics is the discipline used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste repositories and geothermal energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock mass. Despite the variety of projects that use rock engineering, the principles remain the same. Engineering Rock Mechanics clearly and systematically explains the key principles behind rock engineering. The book covers the basic rock mechanics principles; how to study the interactions between these principles and a discussion on the fundamentals of excavation and support and the application of these in the design of surface and underground structures. Engineering Rock Mechanics is recommended as an across-the-board source of information for the benefit of anyone involved in rock mechanics and rock engineering.

Book Short Summary:

This book provides an overview of current theories of and methods for analysing spoken discourse. It includes discussions of both the more traditional approaches of pragmatics, conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology and critical discourse analysis, and more recently developed approaches such as multimodal discourse analysis and critical sociolinguistics. Rather than treating these perspectives as mutually exclusive, the book introduces a framework based on principles from mediated discourse analysis in which different approaches to spoken discourse are seen as complementing and informing one another. In this framework, spoken discourse is seen as mediated through a complex collection of technological, semiotic and cultural tools which enable and constrain people's ability to engage in different kinds of social actions, enact different kinds of social identities and form different kinds of social relationships. A major focus of the volume is on the way technological tools like telephones, broadcast media, digital technologies are changing the way people communicate with spoken language. The book is suitable for use as a textbook in advanced courses in discourse analysis and language in social interaction, and will also be of interest to scholars in a variety of fields including linguistics, sociology, media studies and anthropology.

Book Short Summary:

Coherence is the flow of information from the intention to the purpose and from the purpose to the significance. In other words, every WHAT (Intention) has a WHAT FOR (purpose) and a WHY (significance), that leads to Congruency . Coherence is enforced with truthfulness, honesty, transparency, integrity and it is weakened and blocked by betrayal, lies, mis representation and toxic relationships at a physical, emotional, personal and spiritual levels. The intention, purpose and significance are of electromagnetic nature, the resulting coherence and congruency allows for the collapse of the electromagnetic wave function giving way to the formation of vortices via the generation of gravitational waves followed by scalar waves. This is possible because of the angular momentum generated by spinning energy.

Book Short Summary:

It’s amazing how dominant information is in the modern world. In fact, it’s so dominant that it begs the question, “What if information does not only define and shape our world—what if it is in fact reality”? The 1999 film The Matrix and its sequels were predicated on just this idea. Of late, the sultans of Silicon Valley have become obsessed with this idea, which is known as the simulation hypothesis. Elon Musk himself has remarked, “There’s a billion-to-one chance we’re living in base reality.” Perhaps information doesn’t just define and shape our reality. Perhaps it’s entangled in the fabric of reality through the mind of the observer. Consider the philosophical thought experiment: if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? It takes a mind to experience reality. In this book, I chronicle the journey that led me to discover the missing link between science and spirituality: the information-bit. Legendary theoretical physicist John Wheeler’s “it-from-bit” theory and my own Quantum Mind model are ultimately rooted in the same thing: data. Wheeler suggested that the reality of physics —the “it”—is based on patterns of information, or “bits.” I theorize that our actions in the real world unfold in sync with the underlying information-thought blueprints that exist in our mind. Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think, you become.” This bi-directional dialogue across the mind–body connection may well occur at the Planck scale, where the transition between quantum physics—the bit—and classical physics—the it—operates. But where do the mind and body meet? Purpose, which emerges from knowing oneself, unifies the wisdom of the East with the pragmatism of the West. The energy derived from what has meaning to the self is the fuel that allows individuals to manifest in the physical reality (via the body) the bit arrangement contained in the micro realm of their mind. If its point of origin is love, this route leads to inner peace and harmony and draws a vector unifying the mind, heart, and body.

Book Short Summary:

NAMED A BEST SCIENCE BOOK OF 2021 BY KIRKUS * An acclaimed experimental physicist at CERN takes you on an exhilarating search for the most basic building blocks of our universe, and the dramatic quest to unlock their cosmic origins. "A fascinating exploration of how we learned what matter really is, and the journey matter takes from the Big Bang, through exploding stars, ultimately to you and me." (Sean Carroll) Carl Sagan once quipped, “If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” But finding the ultimate recipe for apple pie means answering some big questions: What is matter really made of? How did it escape annihilation in the fearsome heat of the Big Bang? And will we ever be able to understand the very first moments of our universe? In How to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch, Harry Cliff—a University of Cambridge particle physicist and researcher on the Large Hadron Collider—sets out in pursuit of answers. He ventures to the largest underground research facility in the world, deep beneath Italy's Gran Sasso mountains, where scientists gaze into the heart of the Sun using the most elusive of particles, the ghostly neutrino. He visits CERN in Switzerland to explore the "Antimatter Factory," where the stuff of science fiction is manufactured daily (and we're close to knowing whether it falls up). And he reveals what the latest data from the Large Hadron Collider may be telling us about the fundamental nature of matter. Along the way, Cliff illuminates the history of physics, chemistry, and astronomy that brought us to our present understanding—and misunderstandings—of the world, while offering readers a front-row seat to one of the most dramatic intellectual journeys human beings have ever embarked on. A transfixing deep dive into the origins of our world, How to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch examines not just the makeup of our universe, but the awe-inspiring, improbable fact that it exists at all.

Book Short Summary:

This is a story so personal, it took fifty years to write. Alexander, Child of Love is not a self-help book about how to best survive the death of a child. Alexander’s story is the story of the power of love. The more you love, the longer you love, the larger you become. Long after my son’s death, I was profoundly shocked to learn that Alexander was actually “murdered.” As you read, you will come to understand why the word “murdered” was not ill-chosen. The story I am about to tell you is not simply about a mother and child. It is about the human spirit and the heights to which it can ascend to overcome extreme physical disability and pain. In essence, it is about love. During my son’s mortal life, I learned for the first time the meaning of real love. I learned that such love has the power to work miracles in our lives.
