♥ Book Title : Affair of the Brains
☯ Full Synopsis : "The one great feud that shook whole worlds in its final terrible settling--the feud of Hawk Carse and Dr. Ku Sui. ExcerptThough it is seldom nowadays that Earthmen hear mention of Hawk Carse, there are still places in the universe where his name retains all its old magic. These are the lonely outposts of the farthest planets, and here when the outlanders gather to yarn the idle hours away their tales conjure up from the past that raw, lusty period before the patrol-ships came, and the slender adventurer, gray-eyed and with queer bangs of hair obscuring his forehead, whose steely will, phenomenal ray-gun draw and reckless space-ship maneuverings combined to make him the period's most colorful figure. These qualities of his live again in the outlanders' reminiscences and also of course his score of blood-feuds and the one great feud that shook whole worlds in its final terrible settling--the feud of Hawk Carse and Dr. Ku Sui.Again and again the paths of the adventurer and the sinister, brilliant Eurasian crossed, and each crossing makes a rich tale. Time after time Ku Sui, through his several bands of space-pirates, his individual agents and his ambitious web of power insidiously weaving over the universe, whipped his tentacles after the Hawk, and always the tentacles coiled back, repulsed and bloody. An almost typical episode is in the affair which followed what has been called the Exploit of the Hawk and the Kite.It will be remembered--as related in ""Hawk Carse""--that Dr. Ku laid a most ingenious trap for Carse on the latter's ranch on Iapetus, eighth satellite of Saturn. Judd the Kite, pirate and scavenger, was the Eurasian's tool in this plot, which started with a raid on the ranch. The fracas which followed the Hawk's escape from the trap was bloody and grim enough, and resulted in the erasure of Judd and all his men save one; but the important thing to the following affair was that Judd's ship, the Scorpion, fell into Carse's hands with one prisoner and the ship's log, containing the space coordinates for a prearranged assignation of Judd with Ku Sui."Article| Anthony Gilmore| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Age of Em
☯ Full Synopsis : "Many thinkers believe that the next transformational change in human organization will be the onset of human-level artificial intelligence (the 'singularity'), and that the most likely method of achieving this will come through brain emulations or "ems": the ability to scan human brains and program their connections into ever faster computers. Taking this as his starting point, Hanson describes what a world dominated by these ems will be like."Article| Robin Hanson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Last Call from Earth -Stage I, Biological Survival
☯ Full Synopsis : "In December of the year 2012, a collision of branes creates a rupture in our universe. As a consequence, millions of galaxies separate themselves out and disappear into the night. The solar system accelerates its freezing process. On Earth, a major earthquake opens up a deep hole in the Yucatan peninsula. Expeditions into this hole, miles deep, find the remnants of an ancient civilization several millions of years old. This civilization comes to be known as the Rupturians. With the technological advances of the Rupturians, we learn to build Inter Galactic Teleportation Chambers, which we use to colonize seven planets in the galaxy Ptolomeo Dual Spiral. Over a period of 54 years, we teleport 800 million people to these colonies. But, unexpectedly, without knowing the cause, people in the colonies get their DNA archetypes out of control and become deformed physically, emotionally and mentally. The only salvation is to transplant their souls into bodies created in lab environments."Article| Al Herr| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Earth Citizen
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ilchi Lee's new book, Earth Citizen, is humanity's passport to a whole new world. In the book, Lee asks us to shed old identities that are illusionary and divisive, and to take on a new identity--Earth Citizen. It is through this simple shift in self-identification, he argues, that the world can find the answers to its many complex problems. Lee contends that while the cultures of the world may remain diverse, we are all united by our dependence on a single planet--the Earth. For this reason, he says we must all find a way to place the Earth at the center of our personal value systems. It is only by realizing our common humanity through the Earth that we may come together as one to create a peaceful and sustainable way of life on the planet."Article| Ilchi Lee| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Religion, Politics, and the Earth
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Following Vattimo's postmodern philosophy, Badiou's postmetaphysical ontology, and i ek's revolutionary style, the authors of this marvelous book invites us to reactivate our politics of resistance against our greatest enemy: corporate capitalism. The best solution to the ecological, energy, and financial crisis corporate capitalism has created, as Crockett Clayton and Jeffrey Robbins suggest, is a new theological materialism where Being is conceived as energy both subjectively and objectively. All my graduate students will have to read this book carefully if they want to become philosophers." - Santiago Zabala, ICREA Research Professor at the University of Barcelona "This is a book of an extraordinary timeliness, written in an accessible and strikingly informative way. It is excellently poised to become a synthetic and agenda setting statement about the implications of a new materialism for the founding of a new radical theology, a new kind of spirituality. I consider this therefore quite a remarkable book which will be influential in ongoing discussions of psychoanalysis, continental philosophy, and theology. Moreover, it will be, quite simply, the best book about spirituality and the new materialism on the market today. While all of the work of the new materialists engage at one level or another the question of a new spirituality, I do not think there is anything comparable in significance to what Crockett and Robbins have provided here." - Ward Blanton, University of Kent "This book will perhaps be most appreciated by the reader with an intuitive cast of mind, able to recognize the force of an argument in its imaginative suggestiveness . . . New Materialism is about energy transformation, we are told, energy which cannot be reduced to matter because it resonates with spirit and life . . . Yet the book strikes a fundamental note of hard reality: 'if we want our civilization to live on earth a little longer we will have to recognize our coexistence with and in earth'." - Christian Ecology Link"Article| C.

♥ Book Title : Tales from Both Sides of the Brain
☯ Full Synopsis : "Michael S. Gazzaniga, one of the most important neuroscientists of the twentieth century, gives us an exciting behind-the-scenes look at his seminal work on that unlikely couple, the right and left brain. Foreword by Steven Pinker. In the mid-twentieth century, Michael S. Gazzaniga, “the father of cognitive neuroscience,” was part of a team of pioneering neuroscientists who developed the now foundational split-brain brain theory: the notion that the right and left hemispheres of the brain can act independently from one another and have different strengths. In Tales from Both Sides of the Brain, Gazzaniga tells the impassioned story of his life in science and his decades-long journey to understand how the separate spheres of our brains communicate and miscommunicate with their separate agendas. By turns humorous and moving, Tales from Both Sides of the Brain interweaves Gazzaniga’s scientific achievements with his reflections on the challenges and thrills of working as a scientist. In his engaging and accessible style, he paints a vivid portrait not only of his discovery of split-brain theory, but also of his comrades in arms—the many patients, friends, and family who have accompanied him on this wild ride of intellectual discovery."Article| Michael S. Gazzaniga| Statement ..."
