By Design: Science and the Search for God

By Design: Science and the Search for God
by Larry Witham


This is a fantastic book for anyone looking to begin investigation of the Intelligent Design Movement.


The Origins of Life : Evolution As Creation
by Hoimar von Ditfurth

is a new type of film. It is part documentary, part story, and part elaborate and inspiring visual effects and animations. The protagonist, Amanda, played by Marlee Matlin, finds herself in a fantastic Alice in Wonderland experience when her daily, uninspired life literally begins to unravel, revealing the uncertain world of the quantum field hidden behind what we consider to be our normal, waking reality. [...]
The film employs animation to realize the radical knowledge that modern science has unearthed in recent years. Powerful cinematic sequences explore the inner-workings of the human brain. Quirky animation introduces us to the smallest form of consciousness in the body – the cell. Dazzling visuals reinforce the film’s message in an exciting, powerful way. Done with humor, precision, and irreverence, these scenes are only part of what makes this film unique in the history of cinema, and a true box-office winner.

The Sixth World foretells of 2012 Mayan revival (novel) 
by Margaret Evans

Two California archaeologists unexpectedly turn detectives during a routine expedition into the hills ringing the Central Valley . They discover Mayan hieroglyphics that tell of the approaching end of the Mayan Fifth World, a vast treasure of gold and fantastic technology, hidden for centuries in preparation for the new age. When the pair is caught in an international intrigue, they grasp the unimaginable possibility that the Maya, whose advanced civilization vanished from Central America in the ninth century, have survived to oversee the new age, and a diabolic plot now threatens the Mayan existence and their plans for the coming Sixth World. Amy Parrish and Joe Magee have no choice but to battle the evil that threatens to destroy the Maya and the earth itself.

Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 B. C.
by D. S. Allan, J. B. Delair


To all but the most close-minded, this book will demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that the history of our planet is not as we read it in the textbooks. Crucial evidence has been ignored in those books...

by Albert Einstein, Leopold Infeld

This book is a fascinating introduction to the mind and work of someone who is normally thought to be beyond ordinary human comprehension. That he is an exceptional intellect is beyond question. What is remarkable is that he is able to communicate clearly to those of us less blessed with brillance. This is a wonderful book for any who have an active interest in how the universe works and how revolutionary new insights about the universe can be achieved with thought alone.

Civilization One : The World Is Not as You Thought It Was
by Christopher Knight and Alan Butler

Civilization One tells of the startling conclusions that came from two scientists' quest to try to crack the mystery of the ancient "megalithic yard" — a unit of 82.966656 centimeters used to construct thousands of megalithic structures in Britain and France. The discovery was an extraordinary ancient culture predating the earliest known civilizations.

The Self-Aware Universe: How Consciousness Creates the Material World by Maggie Goswami, Richard E. Reed, Amit Goswami

In this stimulating and timely book, Amit Goswami, Ph.D., shatters the widely popular belief held by Western science that matter is the primary "stuff" of creation, and proposes instead that consciousness it the true foundation of all we know and perceive.
His explanation of quantum physics for lay readers, called "a model of clarity" by Kirkus Reviews, sets the stage for a voyage of discovery through the common ground of science and religion, the entwined nature of mind and body, and our interconnectedness with all of creation.

MKULTRA : The CIA's Top Secret Program in Human Experimentation and Behavior Modification
by George Andrews

Book Description

One of the darkest chapters in America's history, MKULTRA was a top secret program in human experimentation and behavior modification. Based on actual classified government documents, this book exposes the lengths to which U.S. Government agencies had gone to develop and implement mind control, covert drug administration, and other human experiments in the name of national security. A shocking look into what is likely the most controversial government program in history, Dr. Andrews' book also includes pages of documents from other, more recent projects such as CIA drug testing, LSD experiments, and biological agent testing on human subjects.

The Deeper Truth: Uncovering the Missing History of Egypt
by Richard Russell Cassaro


All over the ancient world are stories exalting the greatness of ancient Egypt, its magnificent wisdom, and its extensive knowledge. The Greek and Roman cultures had their origins in Egyptian culture. Pythagoras and Homer are said to have been schooled there. Many Greek philosophers, such as Socrates, were also influenced by its religion.

What exactly did they find so inspiring and illuminating about Egypt? How is it that Pythagoras and Homer, two of the greatest thinkers of the ancient world, gathered their insight into the meaning of life from Egypt, while we have not yet learned anything of dire importance to mankind from the discoveries made thus far? Where is the wisdom behind Ra, the Sun-God? Or Osiris, a legendary king? Isis, a famous queen? These characters do not inspire us, as Homer's Ulysses inspires us. They do not make us think as Pythagoras, Plato, and Socrates make us think. We do not connect with Horus. We cannot feel the full power of Isis. We do not know the meaning of Ra. We have not yet truly grasped the gravity or significance of Osiris.

How is it that the Greeks and Romans considered Egypt to be an intellectual giant, and yet we, who understand the hieroglyphics, have not gleaned any high wisdom from its ruins? What happened to the penetrating secrets that Egypt was supposed to disclose? What happened to the truths pertaining to the meaning of life that Egypt was destined to give us? Does Egypt have more to offer than modern Egyptologists have uncovered?

The Zelator: A Modern Initiate Explores the Ancient Mysteries

by Mark Hedsel, David Ovason

A late 20th Century story of one man’s inner and outer search for enlightenment. "It has been recognized by esotericists for a very long time that, as the 20th Century reached its troubled end, many of the ancient secrets would have to be revealed. Even as we write, some esoteric schools are investigating, preserving, and teaching some of the Ancient Mysteries that would otherwise be lost in the face of changes which are to come. The metaphor of ark-building comes to mind."

Astral Dynamics
by Robert Bruce

1999 ::: 559 pages


A practical manual for those who want to learn how to leave their body and undertake astral journey's...

Editorial Review

Don't you love it when you pick up a book that immediately explains experiences you've had but had no explanation for when they occurred? This doesn't happen often, but it might with Astral Dynamics, Robert Bruce's straightforward how-to manual on astral projection. Perhaps you've had a spontaneous out-of-body experiences and didn't know it! This extensive tome teaches you everything you need to know to accomplish successful, planned out-of-body travel; how to exit the body, how to get around on the astral plane, and how to get back in with solid, provable memories of the event. Bruce writes very clearly and uses down-to-earth terminology so that you learn not only how to create a "real-time double" to astrally project but also about the physics of the nonphysical world. Out-of-body experiences can be so confusing that enjoying them or employing them usefully can be a serious challenge. Fortunately, Bruce now brings his 25 years of interdimensional experience to the aid of astral explorers the world over, and everywhere else too. --P. Randall Cohan

High Priests, Quantum Genes
Michael Hayes, Colin Wilson (Introduction)



Read the entire Introduction by Colin Wilson

Is there a unifying principal that governs the entire universe from the cosmic scale right down to the sub-atomic? A question asked throughout history by spiritual leaders, natural philosophers and scientists. And can we identify an overarching system capable of uniting Einsteinian physics, quantum theory and the other apparently disparate areas of science? Can the religious world view be reconciled with the scientific? In short, is there a ‘theory of everything’?
Michael Hayes thinks so, and he thinks he has discovered – or rather rediscovered – a precise code that explains it all. This code, which Hayes calls the Hermetic Code, is one of the most vital insights of the ancients, apparently lost over time...

Book Description
Is there a code that explains the fundamental processes of life and evolution?
Michael Hayes reveals that there is, in a captivating journey through religious experience, astrophysics, spiritualism, molecular biology, ancient wisdom, quantum physics and history.

His discovery will change the way we look at the universe.

High Priests, Quantum Genes is an ambitious attempt to make sense of the world around us. There are distinct numerical patterns running through the symbolisms of ancient philosophies and religions the world over, and these same symmetries are apparent in many of the theories of supposedly ground-breaking science. So maybe science is only rediscovering through empirical research what the ancients understood intuitively.

The ordering principles of the universe appear to be mirrored in the structure of this numerical pattern and – perhaps most intriguing and uncanny of all – in the symmetries of music. Our notions of what is harmonious in music may therefore spring not simply from an abstract aesthetic sense but as a response to and an intuition of more fundamental harmonies.

The Last Alchemist
Count Cagliostro, Master of Magic in the Age of Reason

by Iain McCalman



chapter excerpt>>

Book Description

Freemason .. Shaman ... Prophet ... Seducer ... Swindler ... Thief ... Heretic -- Who was the mysterious Count Cagliostro? Depending on whom you ask, he was either a great healer or a dangerous charlatan. Internationally acclaimed historian Iain McCalman documents how Cagliostro crossed paths -- and often swords -- with the likes of Catherine the Great, Marie Antoinette, and Pope Pius VI. He was a muse to William Blake and the inspiration for both Mozart's Magic Flute and Goethe’s Faust. Louis XVI had him thrown into the Bastille for his alleged involvement in what would come to be known as "the affair of the necklace." Yet in London, Warsaw, and St. Petersburg, he established "healing clinics" for the poorest of the poor, and his dexterity in the worlds of alchemy and spiritualism won him acclaim among the nobility across Europe. Also the leader of an exotic brand of Freemasonry, Count Cagliostro was indisputably one of the most influential and notorious figures of the latter eighteenth century, overcoming poverty and an ignoble birth to become the darling -- and bane -- of upper-crust Europe.

Editorial Review

Cultural historian McCalman (editor, An Oxford Companion to the Romantic Age) presents an enlightening account of the career of one of the most famous charlatans of the 18th century, Count Alessandro di Cagliostro. He was born poor, in 1743, in Sicily, where he began his career as a petty street thug. Setting the pattern for the rest of his life, Cagliostro was forced to flee Sicily after defrauding a local merchant. He traveled all over Europe, usually one step ahead of the authorities, spreading his brand of Freemasonry and billing himself as an alchemist and healer. Tremendously charismatic, he gained legions of followers. In Russia, he tried to convert Catherine the Great to Freemasonry, but she viewed him as politically subversive and harried him out of the country. Cagliostro's journeys finally brought him to Italy, where he was hounded as a fake by the newspapers. The amorous adventurer Casanova described Cagliostro as a fraud who fleeced the gullible. While in Italy, his wife, Seraphina, grew tired of all the traveling and the constant bad publicity, and betrayed him to the Inquisition, which, shocked by his Freemasonry and his claims to have supernatural powers, sentenced him to life in prison; he died there in 1795. McCalman's account is adeptly researched and written with a light, charming touch; as the author makes abundantly clear, the Age of Reason was also an age of mysticism and downright quackery. 26 b&w illus. -- From Publishers Weekly

Critical Praise

“Gracefully weaves in the politics and passions of the age....Cagliostro is [an] extraordinary figure.”
--New York Times

“Perceptive, intelligent and -- by no means least -- immensely entertaining”   --Washington Post

Science Declares Our Universe Is Intelligently Designed

by Robert A. Herrmann


Partial description from back of cover.

"Using a simplified approach and a casual conversational style, this book explains how the science of mathematical modeling establishes that the behaviors of all physical systems, from the smallest biological and subatomic particles to the most massive configurations within our universe, are designed, produced, sustained or guided by intelligent agents. . . . No actual mathematical analysis appears in this book. Only the conclusions for this modeling are discussed."

I am the originator of the notion that natural-system behavior and intelligent design can be mathematically analyzed. This general audience book contains a vast amount of material not previously disclosed relative to interpretations of the General Grand Unification model (GGU-model). The basic hypotheses used to construct this model are verified billions of times a day. Further, the interpreted GGU-model is so highly scientific in character that any time an individual conducts a scientific experiment and verifies an inductive or deductive statement, then this also verifies the GGU-model. Many significant GGU-model processes and results are discussed in detail. For example, I show that the following statements are rationally obtained declarations.

(1) Science declares that our universe is designed and produced, sustained or guided by a definable higher intelligence and associated intelligent agents.

(2) Science declares that our universe is produced, sustained or guided by physical processes that give the illusion of intelligent design.

(3) The higher intelligence of declaration (1) exists and can be identified with God as He is described within the Bible.

Are statements (1) - (3) factual? This is answered by the following established statements.

(4) Based upon the scientific methods used by science-communities, statement (1) or (2) most be fact. If a certain unverified evolutionary hypothesis is accepted, then we cannot know by means of standard scientific analysis which of the declarations (1) or (2) is true in objective reality.

(5) There are specific procedures that will allow you to determine whether (1), (2) or (3) is fact.

Remember that one can make all sorts of declarations. Scientifically establishing any declaration as fact is another matter.

In this book, you are also introduced to the predicted theory of ``subparticles.'' These are probably the true building blocks for our and possible many other universes. Further, subparticle theory eliminates the particle physics controversy as to whether most of the postulated "particles" actually exist in objective reality, or are they but invented and the quantum physics that applies is but a predictive "bookkeeping" scheme.

From the Author

History is a web of journalistic intrigue written to benefit those who have been in charge. They won the wars they generated through their NEEDS, and usurped the knowledge of sincere adepts, like Jesus and Buddha. There is no real new insight in this perspective but in this book you will start the process of seeing for yourself just how incredible the gamesmanship or forgery has been. Lactantius was the tutor for the house of Constantine who edited the Bible and designed much of what Christianity has become. This ancient sage was an early promoter of the Flat Earth and he noted there ‘will always be those who will lie and forge for religion’.

It is my hope that you can assist the enlightenment that must occur once you see some of the forensic and archaeological information now available. Perhaps more importantly I hope you will find roots to all religion which must develop tolerance and ecumenicism if we are to endure as a species on this planet hurtling ever faster through the unlimited creative and awesome universe we are blessed with.

Some academics decry the Post-Modern era where the knowledge is available for all to make their own judgment about. I have no definite opinion about most things and I hope we all can strive to find the answers together. I look forward to seeing these academics tear apart what I have done as I present information hidden or not employed in any other book. I await the inevitable outcry; but I am sure there are reasons why the great sage Lao Tzu went to see the Ancient Masters of the Tarim Basin where the Red-Heads developed most of the technology and other social systems that we are now finding spread around the world. My speculations that seek to integrate various facts of sciences are not the final answer and I look forward to the reader assisting me in helping bring the ‘Brotherhood’ back to the forefront of life on Earth.

From the PROLOGUE:

History is prologue to the present as thought is to action. Our socially accepted ‘norms’ or acts often determine how average people think - based on the propaganda presented as fact. These supposed facts of history are revised to suit attitudes of the prevailing paradigm. Reading about Cleopatra in the words of Lucy Hughes-Hallet will make the point clear to anyone; she presents an alchemist or temptress to seem either evil or laudatory depending on many social imperatives in different centuries. The same is true with Jesus and there are many good books written by Rabbis or other scholars to demonstrate that issue, which repeats like cucumbers on a full stomach. Marshall McLuhan made an interesting observation about the person who controls the media for 15 years. He said if he was given that power he would control all society. His recent biographer says McLuhan knew about secret societies who own or control the very media and society we live in.

It is a multi-layered management that many popes, kings and professors have mistakenly thought they were in charge of, but later were seen to be operating according to a larger plan. The Bilderbergs are not the most powerful, or at the top of the mountain but whoever organizes their seminars and information is an important person. Whenever powerful people seek to come to common ground it can easily be seen as a good thing. There is no good reason to reject such efforts that take place every year at hotels owned by the Rothschild family, unless we know what they do. In the absence of facts we must look to history or the outcome of the supposed plans (or lack thereof) that such people agree to implement. Shortly after the Trojan World War in 1200 BC a similar and probably similarly structured meeting (by the ancestors of the Rothschilds) took place off Miletus. They were called the Perpetual Sailors and as members of the Phoenician Brotherhood had been around since Ba’albek and before the Pyramids.

Those who run the bureaucracy or act as political ‘stooges’ and ‘fronts’ for these plans include the likes of Napoleon and Hitler. But the history we are told about, seldom explores how these supposed dictators were put in power and how they were managed or ‘handled’. Hitler was a Jew and lived as one in Vienna; according to the report made for the top dog of US Intelligence (is that an oxymoron?), Wild Bill Donovan. This book written by a psychiatrist leaves out all evidence of any spiritual or occult specialties employed by Hitler or his handlers. I assure you Professor Horbiger, Himmler, Eckhart and others were adept in matters of the occult (‘oc’= ‘not’, a cult). This book is called The Mind of Adolf Hitler: The Secret Wartime Report, and it makes it very apparent Hitler was related to the Rothschilds: but it doesn’t explain who these people were before they took their name from the ‘red shield’ in front of Meyer Amschel Rothschild’s father’s hotel just a century before Adolf’s father went to study in Vienna. Vienna is the place Salomon Rothschild had run his part of the Rothschild financial EMPIRE.


This book is much more than a statement on the nature of propaganda and yet it can only begin to cover all our human potential might have allowed or might yet allow.

A Reader's Review

It makes so much sense to think that if we had been allowed to >retain our pagan heritage the world would have been a better place. Institutional religion which is consummately held by wealth and misinterpretation has completely distorted and made a mockery of the great teachers. "Christianity "does not teach the universal and humane teachings of Jesus Christ. The Zionist Jews do not teach the humanity of the Kabala . The Nichiren Shoshu Buddhists do not practice the spirituality of Buddhism and emphasize instead the gaining of material things through chanting. The real purpose of chanting is to focus on the objective of enlightenment. All of the magic and power of joined souls as in the harmonic convergence can't be realized without the faith in universal sharing of chi and aloha and a common interest in improving the human condition. This was the message of the teachers. We can't make the world a better place by building walls or temples of containment but by overcoming the separation of humanity which are established to enslave rather than liberate. I pray in our lifetime that we will come to the great need of understanding for the human spectrum that we as humans share . We are all of the same composition of body and soul. We all have fear and love at each end of the spectrum of emotion. We are all fixed by our bodily functions in the same way . We are all at various points of departure from this plane. We all live and we all die. Many of us suffer cruel and unusual lives. Many of us waste from hunger, when we can all be fed. Many of us suffer the terrible fate of war. War is now a business . Our belief and political systems have convinced us that war is not an exception but a necessity . Great reading ,and very revealing insights into the cultural paradigms which have replaced research, study, questioning authority, critical thinking .

The proposed, third for the last one hundred years, picture of the universe lacks the basic flaws of the big bang theory and explains many puzzling observations in the near and distant space.

Moon Landings: Did NASA Lie?
by Philippe Lheureux


Paperback/216 pages/illus.

About the Author
An independent scientist and researcher, Philippe Lheureux has been the acclaimed host of popular TV shows and websites. He has also developed several well-known games for the Internet and on CD-ROM.While professionally Lheureux specializes in computer technology, it was his deep love of science in general that drew him to the NASA photos of the moon. And it was his broad scientific training that propelled him to a deeper analysis when he noticed discrepancies in the famous photos of the Apollo missions.

Book Description
Moon Landings: Did NASA Lie? is a personal journey, one in which the author encourages each individual to arrive at his or her own conclusions. After spotting discrepancies in official photos of our lunar expeditions, technologist Philippe Lheureux began what seemed like an innocent study of NASA's public reports. Moon Landings is the result of his findings, a critical analysis of 225 photographs of the Apollo missions -- many from NASA's official website. It is destined to ignite strong reactions from scientists, patriots, the international media, and ultimately the reader. In a riveting in-depth investigation, Lheureux was astonished to find that his countless contacts managed to agree on only one point - that anomalies exist in the photographs NASA released to the press. Perhaps what is more astounding was why such inconsistencies were never publicly called into question - not by scientists, journalists, or even our former rival, the Russians. One by one, Moon Landings: Did NASA Lie? outlines the specific aberrations in the well-documented photographs and explains how and why the equations simply don't add up. However, the author makes a compelling point of not attaching himself to any one theory as to why. Instead, he identifies several interpretations that have been proposed as a means of arriving at the truth. Throughout the book, Lheureux stresses that it is not his goal to criticize NASA. In fact, he commends NASA for enabling the exploration of space and therefore, igniting the imagination and encouraging our right to dream. In the final analysis, though, he believes that the photographs appear enhanced and potentially altered in some way. So what if NASA's photos of the moon landings were staged? The author cannot answer that question -- and chooses not to. In fact, he maintains that it is far easier to raise questions than to find answers. This is the premise of Moon Landings.

The Way of Hermes: New Translations of The Corpus Hermeticum and The Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius
by Clement Salaman (Translator), Dorine Van Oyen, William D. Wharton (Translator), Jean-Pierre Mahe (Translator)

Book Description

A new translation of the great esoteric masterpiece that includes the first English translation of the recently rediscovered Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius.

* The Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius provides new insights into the actual workings of the gnostic spiritual path.

* Will be of great interest to scholars and religious seekers alike.

The Corpus Hermeticum, a powerful fusion of Greek and Egyptian thought, is one of the cornerstones of the Western esoteric tradition. A collection of short philosophical treatises, it was written in Greek between the first and third centuries a.d. and translated into Latin during the Renaissance by the great scholar and philosopher Marsilio Ficino. These writings, believed to be the writings of Hermes Trismegistus, were central to the spiritual work of Hermetic societies in late antique Alexandria, aiming to awaken gnosis, the direct realization of the unity of the individual and the Supreme. They are still read as important, inspirational spiritual writings today.

In addition to this new translation of The Corpus Hermeticum, which seeks to reflect the inspirational intent of the original, The Way of Hermes includes the first English translation of the recently rediscovered manuscript of The Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius, a collection of aphorisms, closely related to parts of The Corpus Hermeticum, used by the hermetic student to strengthen his mind in meditation. With the proper mental orientation, one could achieve a state of pure perception in which the true face of God appears. This document is of enormous value to the contemporary student of gnostic studies for its insights into the actual workings of this spiritual path.

The Lost Secret of Death: Our Divided Souls and the Afterlife

by Peter Novak

Book Description

Novak investigates a belief called the Binary Soul Doctrine (BSD) which states simply that humans possess two souls which split at death, the conscious going on to reincarnate again and again, while the unconscious ends up in a type of limbo judging itself for all eternity.
He goes on to explain that long ago the BSD was the primary belief of a single world religion, which since has been broken into more and more fragments. However, he claims that twentieth-century findings, including the work of Freud and Jung, as well as findings of modern neuroscience and Near-Death research, has marked a resurgence of belief in the veracity of the BSD.
Novak argues—just as those long ago did—that it is essential for humans to integrate these two souls together before death to avoid the nightmare of being split in two at death. He even offers a few steps to help readers start the process of integration.

Review by Ian Lawton

“This book ought to be read by every thoughtful person on this planet [..] Peter Novak effectively pulls it all together: religion (the major World religions' after-life beliefs of reincarnation and a heaven/hell scenario, and more); science (current scientific ideas about the duality of the mind, ie. the conscious and un-conscious aspects of the brain); "paranormal" activity (ie. near-death experiences, past-life hypnosis regression analysis, and ghosts). Through his comprehensive research, lasting over a decade, Peter Novak has shown that the current major World Religions have all been partially correct in their after-life beliefs about what transpires after we leave this three-dimensional existence, but none has had the whole picture. The simple, yet profound, very early Christian belief of the Binary Soul Doctrine ... has been almost single-handedly resurrected by Peter Novak...”

Stellar Theology and Masonic Astronomy

by Robert Hewitt Brown

About the Book
This incredibly detailed book reveals the hidden meanings behind occult signs and symbols from ancient times, found in what should be termed stellar theology, and then carried over into our modern world.

Back cover
Rich Anders was born and raised in Austria. He attended Rollins College in Florida and graduated from University of Vienna. Rich Anders spent 15 years in various executive positions. Then he visited the Virgin Islands and stayed. The Caribbean proved to be the right setting for writing this book.

"The End of the World - Then What?" deals with a topic that continuously appears in all the Media. An end of the world scenario is part of practically every religion. It has been foretold by prophets in ancient times, by seers in medieval times, and by present day psychics. Curiously, what comes afterwards is hardly ever mentioned.

This book is dedicated to answering the question of "Then What?" To convey an understanding of this complex topic the previous change of worlds from the paradise to the present world is discussed at length. The author introduces the reader to background information in the Foreword and in the Introduction. The main part of the book consists of contributions by the ones who were doing the work of establishing the spiritual patterns, which will determine the events of the end of this world, of the transition to the New World and what life will be like in the New World.   [...]

A Short History of Nearly Everything
(Audio Cassette)
by Bill Bryson (Author)

Also available in CD and paperback format

Book Description
One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer.

In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining.

Prophet's Manual

Prophet's Manual 
(Fractal Supersymmetry of Double Helix)
by Daniel Srsa

Size : 6 x 9
Pages: 490
ISBN: 0-595-74960-7
Published: Sep-2003

Revelation of true nature of space/time reality that will shake the world. Confirmation of biblical apocalypse as end of time in 2012 predicted by Mayans through fractality of space/time as long-lost ancient wisdom.

Book Description

Prophet’s Manual reveals the one true nature of reality in all its different forms. Fractal supersymmetry unifies all physical theories, including relativity and quantum uncertainty, into one interpretation, just as it brings together spiritual and physical aspects of the one reality.

This book is an introductory course in space/time fractality, the unveiling of original prophetic knowledge in order to prepare for a quantum leap. It confirms through supersymmetry of double helix that the Mayan end date is the same event as announced in apocalyptic passages and in the texts and monuments of ancient civilizations. It is the return of Zep Tepi when skies fall and when a new heaven and earth are created from the old. It’s the rising of phoenix from its ashes.

The Molecule Hunt: Archaeology and the Search for Ancient DNA

by Martin Jones (Author)

Bio-archaeology, the science that finds and studies ancient DNA, has inspired its share of science fiction, but as Jones shows, the work of bio-archaeologists like him sheds light on what the distant past was like in ways never before thought possible. Those who recall high-school or college biology may best appreciate his accounts of chloroplast genomes and molecular overcoats, but anyone interested in ancient history may find much of his findings compelling for their social and genealogical ramifications. He presents science as a detective story, and the spirit of discovery he and his group manifest when analyzing a fossilized seed or piece of rice is infectious. As he reflects on the countless changes in his discipline since he began as an archaeologist 30 years ago, his sense of adventure remains constant, for he knows that each new discovery makes the whole picture a shade clearer. Sans reanimated dinosaurs or Neanderthals, Jones makes ancient history less fictional and really no less fantastic. Will Hickman. Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved.


Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery: An East-West Dialogue on Death and Rebirth from the Worlds of Religion, Science, Psychology, Philosophy

by Joseph Head, Sylvia Cranston

Reviewer: Stan Kuiperi from Aruba
This is not just a book..it's an experience that takes the reader on an incredible journey through time and history..and beyond! It's about humankind and its fantastic, diverse spiritual development through the ages, but at the same time also about each and every one of us personally, whoever and wherever we may be.
The writing is so clear, the content so spell-binding and the consequences so mind-boggling I was profoundly immersed in it for weeks.
Sorry Amazon, this one I'll keep forever..to start re-reading soon!

Mathematics in Nature: Modeling Patterns in the Natural World  (2003)
by John A. Adam

Book Description
From rainbows, river meanders, and shadows to spider webs, honeycombs, and the markings on animal coats, the visible world is full of patterns that can be described mathematically. Examining such readily observable phenomena, this book introduces readers to the beauty of nature as revealed by mathematics and the beauty of mathematics as revealed in nature.
Generously illustrated, written in an informal style, and replete with examples from everyday life, Mathematics in Nature is an excellent and undaunting introduction to the ideas and methods of mathematical modeling. It illustrates how mathematics can be used to formulate and solve puzzles observed in nature and to interpret the solutions. In the process, it teaches such topics as the art of estimation and the effects of scale, particularly what happens as things get bigger. Readers will develop an understanding of the symbiosis that exists between basic scientific principles and their mathematical expressions as well as a deeper appreciation for such natural phenomena as cloud formations, haloes and glories, tree heights and leaf patterns, butterfly and moth wings, and even puddles and mud cracks.

Developed out of a university course, this book makes an ideal supplemental text for courses in applied mathematics and mathematical modeling. It will also appeal to mathematics educators and enthusiasts at all levels, and is designed so that it can be dipped into at leisure.

Here, for the first time, Sir Richard Burton's translations of the classic Eastern love texts have been published in one volume.
The first Kama Sutra to be illustrated in color with a dazzling and unique collection of Indian painting and sculpture.

Currents: Every Life Leaves an Imprint
by Matt McGovern (March 2004)

Book Description
Transcending several genres--mainstream fiction, speculation, and spirituality--CURRENTS-Every Life Leaves an Imprint is best described as inspirational and thought provoking. CURRENTS is about the beauty of life, about beginnings, about hope . . . and delivers a message many need to hear.  Michael Sharpe is an angel. Earthbound for thousands of years, he and others like him live side-by-side with humans. They are our stewards--guardians who help us through life. 

Michael, however, has grown weary of the ways of the world, of the senseless and tragic turns he sees all too often. Michael is seeking more for himself and for humankind. He questions his purpose, the purpose of others like him, and his and their ability to make a difference.

David Kirby is in his mid-thirties, married, with two young children. Recently, his 62-year old father died unexpectedly--leaving David's mother with an uncertain future and David with a gaping hole in his life as well as a lot of questions about meaning, purpose and reasons to go on.

Needing time away in isolation from the rigors of daily life, David sets off alone for the family's wilderness retreat along a remote river in northern Maine, familiar stomping grounds and a place full of cherished memories. At the same time, Michael and three colleagues--Todd, Galen, Sarah--make their annual pilgrimage to the very same spot to talk, to regroup, to revitalize themselves, and to share experiences--good and bad--from the preceding year.

Unbeknownst to David or the others, they are all journeying to the same place--in body, mind and spirit.

Following a dream-like visit from his departed father, wherein David's eyes are opened to a greater definition of life than he previously understood, David and Michael come face to face. Together, they begin an exploration of whether there is hope and a reason for humans and angels to go on.

Forbidden History: Prehistoric Technologies, Extraterrestrial Intervention, and the Suppressed Origins of Civilization

Forbidden History

". . . a case in support of a much greater antiquity for civilization, a convincing argument for the existence of advanced technologies in prehistory, and the outline of a lost fountainhead of world culture."
(SirReadaLot.org, June 2005 )
“. . .essays by such well-known investigators as Robert Schoch, Christopher Dunn or Rand Flem-Ath examine surprisingly sophisticated technology in Pharaonic Egypt, and reconsider possibilities for a global catastrophe that may have altered the course of civilization. . . . this superb new book. . . has much to offer anyone questioning the official party-line concerning mankind’s ancient past.”
(Frank Joseph, Ancient American, Issue # 63 )

"This is a great compilation. . . . the type of book that makes you question what you have been told and makes you want to discover more for yourself." (Ladyfogg, Oct 2005 )
"Read what researchers have to say about prehistoric technologies, evolution versus creation, earth changes, and even the case for extraterrestrial intervention. Look through the eyes of mystics, scientists, and researchers at the top of their fields and see what they have to say about some of the latest finds and discoveries. . . ."
(Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, Feb 2005 )
