5/5/2000 ICE: The Ultimate Disaster

On May 5 in the year 2000 the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will be aligned with the Earth and her Moon. On that day the ice buildup at the South Pole will upset the Earth’s axis--sending trillions of tons of ice and water sweeping over the surface of our planet. Not since the days of Noah has Humankind been faced with this ultimate catastrophe. Astonishing Evidence Points to Worldwide Disaster in Our Lifetime! The number of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and freakish climate changes are increasing as we inexorably move closer to 5/5/2000. Bits of vanished civilizations preserved in museums, evidence of entire forests fossilized instantly, and animals quick-frozen and preserved for millennia prove that a sudden, momentous change in the Earth’s surface occurred in the past. An extensive study of the Great Pyramid reveals a mathematical message of warning built into the structure of a similar catastrophe millennia ago. The 3-mile-high ice mass at the South Pole continues to grow more unstable, and in January 2000 a massive solar storm will crash into Earth’s magnetic field.Richard W. Noone has spent the last twenty years researching his theories. He received the Georgia Grand Master’s Award for his discovery of Masonic Influence in Ancient Egypt and his work has been featured on major national media including Oprah, Donahue, CNN, Sightings, and the top-rated TV show Millennium.

A Coyote in the Garden

When An Painter writes about the natural world, the results can startle and enlighten us like a frieze of lightning followed by soft thunder. As Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday observes in his Foreward to the volume, An Painter’s training as a professional photographer has proven invaluable to her as a poet. For one thing, the 130 short poems in this volume are intensely visual. For another, each of them produces an epiphany: a shower of light in the mind of its reader. Most of Painter’s favorite subjects emerge from the American Southwest where she lives. They include a variety of birds (especially hawks, turkey vultures, and crows) as well as wild and domestic cats, tortoises, squirrels, rabbits, cockroaches, and, of course, the inimitable coyote who steals her heart.

A Cultural History of TIBET

The civilization of the Tibetan people is disappearing before or very eyes, and apart from a few gentle protests here and there, the rest of the world lets it go without comment and without regret. Many civilizations have declined and disintegrated in the past, but it is rare that one has the opportunity of being an informed witness of such events. This revised edition of the classic work on the rapidly vanishing civilization of Tibet traces the evolution of Tibetan culture from its origins to Tibet’s fall to the Chinese Communists in 1959 and the subsequent relocation of Tibetan culture and many Tibetan people.

A Dickens Glossary for American Readers

Meant for American readers of Charles Dickens, this book contains over 2800 entries. It includes hundreds of quotations and explanations of words and phrases that are not found in any other book on Dickens.

Because of the longer quotations and the extended explanations, the book makes for pleasant browsing. It belongs in the library of every American reader of Dickens and in the library of every American school where Dickens is taught. Paperback, 458 pages.

A New Age: Problems & Potential An Interview with Kenneth R. Pelletier

Though few realize it, we live in a new age. We have outgrown the theoretical substructure of modern science and its technological cornucopia. Yet even among scientists there is little grasp of the revolutionary implications of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, the breakdown of the neo-Darwinist paradigm, and recent perceptions of the nature of human consciousness. The edifice of classical determinism still stands, but it is disintegrating before our eyes. In this interview, Kenneth Pelletier, one of the leaders in consciousness research in the United States, talks about the new understanding necessary to cope with the demands of this extraordinary era and take advantage of its manifold promises. Among the subjects discussed by Dr. Pelletier are contemporary doubts about Freud and psychoanalysis, the brain/mind question, and the growth of the astonishing new field of research called psychoimmunology.Kenneth R. Pelletier, author of “Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer”, is assistant clinical professor at the University of California School of Medicine in San Francisco and director of the California Health and Medicine Foundation. His latest book, “Healthy People in Unhealthy Places”, was published in 1984.

ADHD and the Nature of Self-Control

This far-reaching work from renowned scientist-practioner Russell A. Barkley provides a radical shift of perspective on ADHD, arguing that the disorder is fundamentally a developmental problem of self-control, and that a deficit in attention is a secondary, and not universal, characteristic. The volume synthesizes neuropsychological research and theory on the executive functions, illuminating how normally functioning individuals are able to bring behavior under the control of time and orient their actions toward the future. Meticulously applying this model to an examination of the cognitive and social impairments manifested by ADHD, Barkley offers compelling new directions for thinking about and treating this disorder. Russell A. Barkley, PhD, is Director of Psychology and Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. In 1978, he founded the Neuropsychology Service at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Milwaukee Children’s Hospital and served as its until 1985. Since then, he has established the clinics for both child and adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, where he continues to conduct ongoing research. The author of numerous widely acclaimed books and video programs, Dr. Barkley is editor of the newsletter “The ADHD Report”.

An Anthropologist on Mars

To these seven paradoxical tales of neurological disorder and creativity, Oliver Sacks bring the profound compassion and ceaseless curiosity that made Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat international bestsellers. He transports us into the uncanny worlds of his subjects, including an artist who loses his ability to see (or even imagine) color; a surgeon who performs delicate operations in spite of the compulsive ties and outbursts of Tourete’s syndrome; and an autistic professor who holds a Ph.D. in animal science but is so bewildered by the complexity of human emotion that she feels “like an anthropologist on Mars.” Through these extraordinary people, Sacks explores what it is to feel, to sense, to remember--to be, ultimately, a coherent self in the world.

Ancient Inventions

We in the twentieth century tend to assume that our era has a monopoly on the inventions of clever machines, labor-saving devices, feats of engineering, and advanced technology. But as the authors of this fascinating and eye-opening book reveal, some of humankind’s most important and most amazing inventions actually date back thousands of years. Historian and archaeologist team Peter James and Nick Thorpe have pooled their expertise in amassing this compendium of human ingenuity through the ages. Together they conclusively prove that our ancestors, however long ago they lived and whatever part of the globe they occupied, were brilliant problem-solvers. Written with the pure joy of discovery, Ancient Inventions reveals that: Medieval Baghdad had an efficient postal service, banks, and a paper mill; the ancient Greek’s used an early form of computer; Plastic surgery was being performed in India by the first century B.C.; the Egyptians knew about effective contraceptives and more. This is a Great Book!

Casual Day Has Gone Too Far

Who is the maniacal mastermind behind the plot to enforce corporate dress codes? That would be Catbert the evil HR director, one of Dilbert’s corporate nemeses. “It’s simple,” decrees Catbert. “Fridays are casual”, but you can always wear jeans because jeans look good and feel good and you already own several pairs.” Dilbert knows the conflicting feelings of comfort and embarrassment that result from arriving on a Friday dressed in an outfit matching a co-worker’s. Casual Day Has Gone Too Far once again attacks the issues that touch cubicle-dwellers everywhere, and is sure to continue the Dilbert-mania of worker bees and managers alike.

Darwinism, A Time for Funerals. An Interview with Norman Macbeth

Interviewed in Towards magazine in 1982, Norman Macbeth reviews the problems of Darwinism and is frank about the need for realistic reappraisal of Darwinian influence. Yet, feeling “Darwinism is bred into the bone,” he fears there might have to be “a period of ten, fifteen, twenty, even more years of despair” before new ideas will find a good reception. In the course of the conversation, Macbeth reveals why traditional views of Darwinism have long been dated, a situation familiar to almost everyone in the field of evolution, but relatively unknown to the public at large.

Drugs and the Brain

We administer drugs to ease pain, to raise or depress the spirit, stimulate or dull the intellect, conjure visions, and restore sanity... Many of us seek the effects of drugs such as aspirin and antidepressants on the regular basis, but have no idea what they do to our brains in order to bring about such dramatic changes in how we feel, and in some cases, how we think. In this compelling account of drug and brain research, Solomon H. Snyder tells us what scientists have discovered so far about the mechanisms by which drugs that treat anxiety and schizophrenia. We learn how this fascinating, sometimes controversial area of research has shed much light on mental disorders and other elusive brain processes we are sill trying to understand.“Snyder had produced a masterly work which explains clearly how drugs affect brain function.” - Nature

East & West: Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science

East & West traces the fundamentals of this phenomenon and deftly reveals the principles and tenets involved. Its message is for layman and professional alike. Its appeal is universal.Stanislav Grof is a psychiatrist and therapist with an extensive background in consciousness research.

Einstein’s Dreams

There is a place where time stands still. Raindrops hang motionless in air. Pendulums of clocks float mid-swing... As a traveler approaches this place from any direction, he moves more and more slowly. It is 1905 in Berne, Switzerland. A young patent clerk has been dreaming marvelous deams about the nature of time. He is Albert Einstein and he has almost finished his special theory of relativity. What were his dreams like those last pivotal few months? Here, in this extraordinary and highly acclaimed work by physicist Alan Lightman, thirty fables conjure up as many theoretical realms of time, dreamt in as many nights. In one world time is circular, its people fated to repeat triumph and trial over and over again... in another, men and women try to capture time--which appears as a nightingale--in a bell jar... in yet another, there is no time, only frozen moments. All are visions that gently probe the essence of time, the adventure of creativity, the glory of possibility, and the beauty of... Einstein’s Dreams. Alan Lightman was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948 and was educated at Princeton and at the California Institute of Technology. He has written for Granta, Harper’s, The New Yorker, and New York Review of Books. His previous books include “Time Travel”, “Papa Joe’s Pipe”, “A Modern-Day Yankee in a Connecticut Court”, “Origins”, “Ancient Light”, “Great Ideas in Physics”, and “Time for the Stars”. He teaches Physics and writing at M.I.T.

Exo-Psychology A Manual on the use of the Human Nervous System according to the Instructions of the Manufactures.

Life on the Planet Earth, through the instrumentality of the human nervous system, has begun to migrate from the Womb Planet, to establish colonies in space, from whence it can more accessibly contact and communicate with Life in the Galaxy. Rocket ships have attained the escape velocity necessary to ascend beyond the gravitational pull of the womb-planet. Radio-telescope “dishes” now look out to the stars, ready to receive electromagnetic messages from intelligent neighbors. Electronic signals are now transmitting through interstellar space the message of human readiness to exchange and communicate. In our minds, our neurons, in our cells, we know that we, who are about to leave this small satellite of a peripheral star, are neither alone nor unique. Within the lifetime of many who read these lines, it will happen: Our pioneer families will leave the solar system; interstellar messages will be received, contact will be made. The galactic discussion will begin. It is about time to prepare for life in space. It is about time to develop a philosophy, a psychology, the language, the confident wisdom to enable us to listen, understand, and respond intelligently to our interstellar neighbors. The most important and least boring challenge facing humanity is to prepare ourselves neurologically to meet the Einsteinian “relatives” with whom we share the galaxy. The highest priorities--intellectual, social, economic--should be assigned to extraterrestrial communication and migration.

Ghost Sightings : Is there Life after Death?

There are more things in heaven and earth... Ghost stories are as old as the question “What happens when we die? From meetings with dead relatives to visions of Roman soldiers, there are too many stories for ghosts to be dismissed as superstitious nonsense. So what are they? There are stories of animal ghosts, even ghosts of vehicles such as phantom ships and coaches. Could it be that they are recordings of the past, somehow preserved to be played in the present? This remarkable book examines the evidence and the theories. What is the truth behind “poltergeists” or noisy ghosts, spirits that hurl glasses and move furniture? What earned Borley Rectory the title “the most haunted house in England”? Consider for yourself the question “Do the dead live among us?”

Gossips, Gorgons & Crones The Fates of the Earth

Gossips, Gorgons & Crones is the first comprehensive analysis of nuclear-age culture and the accompanying return of female Powers. Based in feminist, pre-patriarchal, and Native American philosophies, this book provides a biting critique of patriarchal practices, myths, and values, including family values. Jane Caputi explores radically new interpretations of the significance of nuclear technology and the relationship of sexual abuse to scientific knowledge. She offers a vision of the future as “female”, one in which patriarchal customs will disappear and a “new world Chaos” will emerge, where everything is equally sacred. Caputi entreats us not to attempt to control nature, but to align ourselves with the true Fates--the goals or purposes--of the Earth. This is a brilliant new work sourced in the author’s research from popular culture.

Jung On Alchemy

The ancient practice of alchemy, which thrived in Europe especially during the Renaissance, dealt with the phenomenon of transformation--not only of materials (ore into gold) but also of the human spirit (self into Other). Through their work in the material realm, alchemists discovered personal rebirth as well as linking between outer and inner dimensions. Nathan Schwartz-Salant is a Jungian analyst in private practice.

Kids Called Crazy

When Ron Jones when to teach summer school at the teen ward of a mental hospital, he had no idea what he was getting into. This was a first. Five kids called “disadvantaged” were being paid to go to school with five kids called “crazy”. The summer brought roller skates and broken glass, a spaceship filled with surprises, unforgettable lessons in love and friendship, a bitterly tragic suicide--and a new understanding of kids called crazy. “Like a children’s version of ‘One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest’, it is alternately tragic, moving and funny.” - Publishers Weekly

Crystal clear in the bottle, potent emerald green in the glass, and 144 proof--Absinthe is as illicit as it is intoxicating. It’s also among history’s most notorious liquors--romanticized and maligned in equal measure. Here for the first time is an illustrated exploration of absinthe’s legendary allure. Sipped by Oscar Wilde, Baudelaire, van Gogh, Manet. Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, and many others prominent artists and writers, absinthe was first used in ancient Greece for its healing powers. In the nineteenth-century France, it became a symbol of decadence and soon a scapegoat for the social and political ills of the period, leading to its ultimate prohibition. From wild stories about its celebrated users to compelling insights into its influence on art, this lavishly illustrated book features over 60 color and 100 black-and-white reproductions of paintings and other absinthe-related art, including posters for and against the controversial spirit. For all those interested in art, literature, liquor, or decadence, Absinthe is history in a bottle.

Masks of the Illuminati

One fateful evening in a suitably dark, beer-soaked Swiss rathskeller, a wild and obscure Irishman named James Joyce would become the drinking partner of an unknown physics professor called Albert Einstein. And on that momentous night, Sir John Babcock, a terror-stricken young Englishman, would rush through the tavern door bringing a mystery that the two most brilliant minds of the century could solve...or perhaps bringing only a figment of his imagination born of the paranoia of our times. An outrageous raunchy ride through the twists and turns of mind and space, “Masks of the Illuminati” runs amok with all our fondest conspiracy theories to show us the truth behind the laughter... and the laughter in the truth.

Metaman-- The Merging of Humans and Machines into a Global Superoganism

In this visionary book, Gregory Stock gives us a new way of understanding our world and our future. He develops the provocative thesis that human society has become an immense living being---a global superorganism in which we humans, knitted together by our modern technology and communication, are like the cells in an animal’s body. Drawing on impressive research, Stock shows this newly formed superorganism to be more than metaphor; it is an actual living creature, which he has named, “Metaman,” meaning “beyond and transcending humans”.

Mother Meera ANSWERS

Mother Meera was born in 1960 in a village in South India. She soon showed herself to be an unusual child: by the age of three she would report “going to various lights.” The state of samadhi was constant for her. Under the auspices of her uncle Mr. Reddy, she lived for some time at the Aurobindo ashram where her extraordinary presence attracted considerable attention. She now lives in Germany where thousands of devotees from all over the world come to receive her darshan, her silent bestowal of grace and light. A radically direct new path to the Divine, a path that uses the transformative power of Divine LIght itself, is presented here by Mother Meera, one of several Incarnations of the Divine Mother on Earth today. Because the world is in crisis, Mother Meera, one of the most widely respected of these Avatars, offers this powerful new path. Working harmonically with any other way to the Divine, this path is one in which the Light itself works to effect the transformation and to change us, gently and protectively, from within.

Neruda and Vallejo Selected Poems Edited by Robert Bly

Among the finest poets of the century, certainly among the most important ever to have written in the Spanish language, Pablo Neruda and Cesar Vallejo are presented here in a notable bilingual selection from their work. These are the “grave and beautiful poems” of Vallejo which Robert Mazzocco has discussed in The New York Review of Books. And the selections from Neruda’s writing are, according to Richard Howard in Poetry, “the best translations of Neruda we have, the closest to something that is not a translation at all, simply magnificent poetry.” Robert Bly, poet, editor, and translator, received the National Book Award for poetry in 1968.

Timothy Leary, Ph.D has been a world-renowned psychologist, a defrocked Harvard professor, a relentless champion of brain change, a reputed drug guru, a stand-up philosopher, and a prisoner of the Nixon administration. He has been called, “the most dangerous man on the planet”. While in prison, at times in solitary confinement, he wrote the first version of this book. (“I must confess that at that time I was alienated, a bit daft and given to occasional fits of irritation. So color the first version of this book indigo--as in Jail House Blues.”) Now revised and updated, Neuropolitique presents some of Dr. Leary’s best ideas, his reflections on the past and his hope for the future. Robert Anton Wilson and George Koopman are also included in this publication.

Reimagination of the World

“New Age” is a term often used as a way of talking about the future—as a vision of a new world still to be born. David Spangler and William Irwin Thompson believe that for this reason alone the entire twentieth century deserves to be called the “New Age”. In Reimagination of the World, they dialogue on the New Age movement, the popular culture of the 1970’s and 1980’s, ecological concerns, and the evolution of human scientific intelligence. With wit and insight, they offer a unique perspective on a period of rapid change in consciousness and planetary responsibility, as well as a vision of new artists, new scientists, and emerging communities.William Irwin Thompson is a cultural historian, director of the Lindisfarne Association, and the author of many books, including “The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light” and “At the Edge of History”, which was nominated for a National Book Award. David Spangler was formerly codirector of the Findhorn Foundation; he is a Lindisfarne Fellow and the author of “Revelation: Birth of a New Age“ and “Emergence: The Rebirth of the Sacred” .

Rekindling the Spirit in Work

The purpose of this book is to light the fire of spirit in work. When we discover our true Self, our Essence, we can identify with who we really are. Work then becomes the natural expression of our Essence and a joyful experience. Many of us have never known what it means to work with spirit. We commonly believe that work is an unrewarding obligation that we must accept in order to earn our living. Rekindling the Spirit in Work opens us to new approaches to gaining information about work through coming to understand the meaning of signs and symbols in our daily lives.

Sacred Architecture

For much of our history all architecture-not only religious monuments and buildings-created the physical context of the sacred. Sacred Architecture is a re-discovery of our collective heritage, showing us how to understand the symbols of change provided by the buildings and monuments of our ancestor. The language of the sacred can be seen in buildings as diverse as the Parthenon, Hopi initiation lodges, Stonehenge, the Temple at Luxor, the cathedrals and the Palladian memory theatre, in which astronomical, mythical, geometric and structural patterns have been incorporated. A.T. Mann explains how such sacred images are not merely stylistic ornaments, but also depict cosmic principles which still have relevance in architecture today. From the early astrological and mythical influences which determined the location, form and function of early monuments, the book travels through history up to the present time, showing how the reflection of the images of earth and heaven in architecture has all but disappeared.

Smoke and Mirrors...The War on Drugs and the Politics of Failure

For the sheer government absurdity, America’s war on drugs is hard to beat. After three decades of increasingly punitive policies, illicit drugs are more easily available, drug potencies are greater, and drug barons are richer than ever. The war on drugs costs Washington more than the Commerce, Interior, and State departments combined--and a strangled court system, exploding prisons, and wasted lives push the cost beyond measure. Even as the citizens of California and Arizona attempt to embrace more rational drug policies, the federal government fights on. Dan Baum’s acclaimed expose shows how the federal government’s war on drugs evolved from a politically potent campaign ploy (courtesy of Richard Nixon) to today’s multibillion dollar boondoggle--a “war” that’s run roughshod over constitutional rights and put one out of four young black men behind bars without so much as a denting the demand for drugs.

Strange Pilgrims

The twelve stories in this shimmering new collection from the author of “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and “Love in the Time of Cholera” feature Latin American characters adrift in Europe. A bereaved father comes to Rome for an audience with the Pope, carrying a box the shape and size of a cello case. An aging streetwalker waits for death in a Barcelona apartment with a dog she has trained to weep at her grave. A panic-stricken husband takes his wife to a Parisian hospital for the treatment of a cut finger and never sees her again. Combining terror and nostalgia, surreal comedy and the poetry of the commonplace, Strange Pilgrims is a triumph of narrative sorcery by one of our foremost magicians of the written word. “Full of strange relish at life’s oddness...Garcia Marquez’s sheer ability to hold and enthrall...makes Strange Pilgrims fascinating and memorable.”Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a Nobel Prize winning author.

Strange Vanishings Unexplained Disappearances

“We don’t know which way is west. Everything is wrong...strange...We can’t be sure of any direction... Even the ocean doesn’t look as it should...” Flight 19--five Avenger torpedo bombers-- was lost over the infamous Bermuda Triangle on the evening of December 5, 1945. Before radio contact failed, the pilots reported that they were running out of fuel because they could not find their way home; their compasses had gone wild and, despite supposedly clear weather in their area, they could not see the setting sun. What happened to them? Likewise, what happened to the three lighthouse keepers who vanished from the Scottish isle of Eilean Mor in 1900? In 1872, the ship Marie Celeste was found sailing without her crew--why and where did they go? Why did Victor Grayson, one of the most charismatic British politicians of the twentieth century, just disappeared, never to be seen again? This fascinating book looks at these and many other cases of strange vanishings.

The Cloud of Unknowing

Originally written in Middle English by an unknown mystic of the fourteenth century, The Cloud of Unknowing” represents the first expression in our own tongue of the soul’s quest for God. A literary work of great beauty in both style and message, it offers a practical guide to the path of contemplation. The author explains how all thoughts and concepts must be buried beneath a “cloud of forgetting,” while our love must rise toward God hidden in the “cloud of unknowing”. William Johnston--an authority on fourteenth-century spirituality and on the writings of this unknown author--provides a substantive and accessible introduction detailing what is known about the history of this text and its relevance throughout the ages. In a new foreword, Huston Smith shows The Cloud of Unknowing as a highly relevant text for today’s spirituality, containing essential elements from the varieties of religious experience.

The End of Patriarchy and the Dawning of a Tri-une Society

Pioneer transpersonal psychologist Claudio Naranjo challenges the basis of the patriarchal order and illuminates how it has affected our world and our lives. With unique insight, Dr. Naranjo moves the reader toward a fuller way of being that integrates the paternal, maternal, and childlike aspects of the person and of society. “The End of Patriarchy” brings a different, clear voice to us in the 1990’s. Through Dr. Naranjo’s interrelational viewpoint we are challenged to see life in the round rather than in fragments.” - Lucia H. Bravo, President, U.S. Association for the Club of Rome. “I think Dr. Naranjo’s diagnosis of the world macroproblem as being essentially the problem of the patriarchal order is right on target. I like his description of the ‘neo -shaman’. He has given an extraordinarily clear explanation of he Quandrinity Process.” - Dr. Willis Harman, President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

The Experiment is Over

Planet Earth is about to be upgraded. It is time to awaken to who you are, and where you came from. Paul Lowe is a very extraordinary being. He has spent his whole life on a quest to find out who he is, from where he came, and what everything is all about. He has attained this realization, and is now available to share this fulfillment with those who are also seeking to awaken to their own full potential. His journey has taken him through a myriad of paths in many parts of the earth, and has included spending thirteen years in spiritual ashrams in India, and other parts of the world. He has worked throughout the planet leading workshops and training courses with groups of up to five thousand people. In 1970 he helped to found the Association of Humanistic Psychology in England, and established Quaesitor which became the world’s second largest Growth Center. In 1985 he created the International Academy of Meditation in Italy. He is now in touch with higher dimensions of reality and has a understanding of the finite purpose of human life on earth. He delights in sharing his experience and understanding, and his loving vibration is a catalyst and an encouragement for people to awaken to their own inner light and richness-in the dignity of their own individuality.

The GOD Particle... If the Universe is the answer, What is the Question?

Join the fascinating search for the “God Particle”, the mysterious building block of all nature, with the Nobel Prize-winning physicist described as “a cross between Albert Einstein and Mel Brooks”. Since an inquiring Greek named Democritus of Abdera sniffed baking bread and deduced the existence of the a-tom, the pursuit of the infinitesimal has become science’s longest quest. Now, in a book of dazzling originality, we make the journey too, moving through the long string of Eureka moments that have brought us tantalizingly close to unlocking the last secrets of the universe. Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Rutherford, and Einstein are just a few of the heroes in Lederman’s tale, each one a brilliant detective looking for clues behind the veil of matter. Extraordinarily accessible, filled with razor-sharp wit and startling storytelling power, The God Particle is a celebration of human curiosity, inviting you to take part in an adventure...finding the solution to a puzzle that will be the greatest discovery of all time.

The Guru Papers Masks of Authoritarian Power

Why are we at a pivot point in history? Beneath the visible authoritarianism in politics, social structures, and personalities is far more pervasive, covert authoritarianism. It is hidden in culture, morality, and daily life. By unmasking authoritarianism in such areas as addiction, intimate relations cults, and religion, the authors expose it as a major factor in social disintegration. Part One examines the most extreme example of one person giving power to another, the guru/disciple relationship, because this reveals less obvious occurrences of control. “Guru” is a metaphor for anyone who manipulates others under the guise of “knowing what’s best” for them, whether leaders, mothers, or lovers. Part Two decodes the authoritarian control concealed in contemporary values and beliefs. It portrays how basic problems, both personal and global, are tied to authoritarian assumptions so embedded they are taken for granted. The Guru Papers show there is a worldwide battle for people’s minds over basic values. At stake in these “morals wars” is our very survival as a species. When people take back the authority that has been unknowingly invested in others, this can unleash the intelligence and care needed to ensure that our history will continue.

The Hidden Work

The Hidden Work is a form of prayer which helps the Absolute. It is not prayer of man asking help for himself. In real prayer we do not pray, we make prayer. This prayer is called Prayer-Absolute. This book is a technical manual. It is not intended to substitute for prayer because it is not a prayer in itself. But if you do have the inspiration to pray, it can be a powerful guide to performing real and effective prayer.

The Hundredth Monkey

“The splitting of the atom has changed everything save our mode of thinking”, warned Albert Einstein, “and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.” This book shows you that we have the creativity and power to change both ourselves and the world. You are introduced to a radical new way of realizing the impact of your energy on the world around you--a quantum leap in consciousness, as demonstrated by the research on the Hundredth Monkey. You’ll find here the facts about nuclear armaments that some people don’t want you to know. The failure of a .46 computer part could sound an alarm that enemy missiles are on their way. An all-out nuclear war today could kill hundreds of millions of people--and cause leukemia, cancer and birth defects in people in all countries... Are you willing to live in such an insane world?The Hundredth Monkey was written by a successful author whose books now total over a million copies. So urgent is this information that he has not copy-righted it. He feels that his survival and your (is there any difference?) are more important than anything else. Your life and well-being are at stake. This book tells you what you can do about it. It gives you hope and direction.

The Martian Enigmas

Mars has stirred our imagination since ancient times; until the second half of this century Mars was thought to be a world much like earth. But in the late 1960’s NASA’s Mariner probes shattered the illusion, revealing the Red Planet to be more like our Moon. Evidence of water erosion and other discoveries, however, fueled the hope that vestiges of life might yet be found on Mars. Mark J. Carlotto is a Division Staff Analyst at The Analytic Sciences Corporation (TASC), a hightech firm in the Boston Area.

The Mind of God...The Scientific Basis for the Rational World

“Through science,” Davies writes, “we human beings are able to grasp at least some of nature’s secrets. We have cracked part of the cosmic code. Why this should be, just why homo sapiens should carry the spark of rationality that provides the key to the universe, is a deep enigma. We, who are children of the universe--animated stardust-- can nevertheless reflect on the nature of that same universe, even to the extent of glimpsing the rules on which it runs.” By means of science, we can truly see into the mind of God. Paul Davies is Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Adelaide in Australia. His research has ranged across much of fundamental physics and cosmology, and he has earned an international reputation through his earlier books God and the New Physics, The Cosmic Blueprint, Superforce, and Other Worlds.

He teaches on the evolution of awareness, combining Eastern and Western perspectives. “Thank you for The Passionate Mind. It held my interest throughout, which for me is unusual. You present basic verities in a way that anyone could assimilate, with beauty and simplicity.” - Anais Nin “Joel Kramer, in his own unique way, shares through his own life adventures, direct ways of helping you to experience you being both the Known and the Knower.” - Alan Watts “Perhaps Joel Kramer’s singular merit lies in his content which is so unusual, so startling, as to grip the mind and shake its foundations... He deals with simple, even commonplace subjects which have been abused again and again. Only, he brings fresh impact to their understanding.” - Gordon Sherman, Chairman of the Board, California School of Professional Psychology. “This book represents years of talking with people about the fundamental problems of living. It is a collection of transcribed and edited lectures. It is also an expression of my own inner inquiry.” - Joel Kramer This book contains lectures on Belief, Pleasure, Freedom, Fear, Death, Time, Love, Sexuality , Evolution and other related topics.

The Politics of Consciousness

The Politics of Consciousness, a practical guide to Personal Freedom with a foreward by Terence McKenna. Think for yourself and question authority. In this volume, Steve Kubby--a modern day Tom Paine--provides two great services. First, he rails against the Gestapo tactics of sealed warrants, seizures without due process and excessive bails used by the DEA and other government regulatory agencies in their “War against Drugs” (actually against youth and nature), which have filled our jails to overflowing and rendered hundreds of thousands of Americans in the position of being “guilty until proven innocent.” And second, he elaborates how psychedelic “plant wisdom” has produced deep personal, spiritual and even physical healing insights, teaching us, in one of the greatest mass social experiments ever, to rethink our most fundamental ideas about the world in which we live, amplifying and expanding our awareness, and de-conditioning pernicious forms of social hypnosis. Kubby’s is a version of extending both internal and external freedoms, with an emphasis on hemp’s medical, environmental and industrial benefits, that has tremendous value for us a... - Peter Stafford, author of The Psychedelic Encyclopedia.

The Psychedelic Experience : A Manual based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead

The drug is only one component of a psychedelic session. Equally important is the mental and spiritual preparation, both before and in the course of taking the drug. The authors find no need to invent new mental and spiritual materials for this purpose. The great literature of meditation lends itself very well to this use. This manual uses material from,“The Tibetan Book of the Dead”. The authors also make an important contribution to the interpretation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. They show that it is concerned not with the dead, but with the living. The last section of the manual provides instructions for an actual psychedelic session, under adequate safeguards. The authors were engaged in a program of experiments with LSD and other psychedelic drugs at Harvard University until sensational national publicity unfairly concentrating on student interest in the drugs, led to the suspension of the experiments. Since then, the authors have continued their work without academic auspices.

The Shakespeare/Bacon Controversy

Serious consideration of the work of Shakespeare cannot overlook the fact that, along with great understanding of human nature, the author was well educated and familiar with the subtleties of court life. Therefore, from what little is known of William Shakespeare, it is difficult to conclude he could have written the work. At the same time, careful examination of the life of Francis Bacon supports a hundred year old theory that Bacon was the true author of Shakespeare—something vehemently denied by academic scholars. However, for the concerned individual, the question is not who was Shakespeare, but who is was Francis Bacon? Once this is addressed, Bacon’s authorship of Shakespeare is quite plausible and the entire body of his work becomes a gate to the esoteric that illuminates ancient mystery and broadens modern consciousness. A graduate of Princeton University, Arthur M. Young, developer and designer of the Bell helicopter, is the author of , “The Reflexive Universe”, and “The Geometry of Meaning“, and founder of the Institute for the Study of Consciousness in Berkeley, California.

The White Hole in Time... Our Future Evolution and the Meaning of Now

Have you ever gazed up at the stars on a clear night and wondered what it’s all about? What’s going on out there in the vastness of space? And what are we doing here on Earth? Is life very rare, if not unique, in the Universe? Or are we human beings utterly insignificant? In terms of physical size and location we certainly are of little significance. In the words of, “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”, ‘Space is big... vastly hugely mindbogglingly big...’ Every star that you see is a star in our own galaxy. And for every one of these there are thousands more far too faint to be seen with the naked eye. It may be hard to imagine, but our own galaxy contains many billions of stars. And as if this were not enough to dwarf us completely, this galaxy is but one of a billion other unseen galaxies. A sweeping vision of humanity’s present and future--from the physicist internationally hailed as the new Buckminster Fuller.“Absolutely brilliant. Like Marx and Freud, but with more wisdom than either of them, Russell might set off a revolution in a dozen sciences and in human consciousness as well.” - Robert Anton Wilson.

As a healer, ceremonialist, spiritual guide and artist, the shaman has been a key figure in human society since he was depicted in the cave paintings made 30,000 years ago by the Paleolithic hunters of Europe. In his bestselling books the anthropologist Carlos Castaneda has described how a shaman like Don Juan is active in America today, using trance and ecstasy to master the unseen forces of nature. Shamanism lies at the very heart of some cultures and survives in the shadowy fringes of others. The words and insights, the costumes and regalia of the shamans, together with photographs of their rituals and of their paintings, are the basis of this vivid and informed book with 131 illustrations, 16 in color.

The Yage Letters

The Yage Letters: an early epistolary novel by William S. Burroughs, whose 1951 account of himself as Junkie, published under the pseudonym William Lee, ended ‘Yage may be the final fix’. In letters to Allen Ginsberg, an unknown young poet in New York, his journey to the Amazon jungle is recorded, detailing picaresque incidents of search for telepathic-hallucinogenic-mind-expanding drug Yage (Ayahuasca, or Banisteriopsis Cape) used by Amazon indian doctors for finding lost objects, mostly bodies and souls. Author and recipient of these letters met again in New York, Xmas 1953, pruned and edited the writing to form a single book. Correspondence contains first seeds of later Ginsberg in Peru writes his old guru an account of his own visions and terrors with the same drug, appealing for further counsel. Burrough’s mysterious reply is sent. The volume concludes with two epilogues: a short note from Ginsberg on his return from the Orient years later reassuring Self that he is still here on earth, and a final poetic cut-up by Burroughs, ‘I Am Dying, Meester?’

Wizard of the Upper Amazon

Wizard of the Upper Amazon is an extraordinary document of life among a tribe of South American Indians at the beginning of the century...In a matter-of-fact tone Cordova tells how he learned the lore of the forest and the Amahuaca directly from the visions that followed upon drinking the ayahuasca extract. He also describes vividly his repeated experiences of shared consciousness with his captors: group vision sessions in which all participants see the same visions simultaneously.”- Andrew Weil from the Introduction. “Plunged into the middle of a jungle foodweb, only visions, plant narcotics, hunting skills and an incredible intimacy with the natural world sustain Cordova-Rios. In no other book have I felt the mixing of human and animal and dream worlds to be so clear and direct.” “I wrote the above paragraph in 1972 after reading the hardback. On re-reading the paper edition, I can only say that this book is far superior to anything Castaneda has attempted. The Huni Kui is not a destroyed tribe like the Yaqui. The Huni Kui have pleasant and important communal visions much more astounding and connected-to-life than the individualistic “fearful” visions of Castaneda. To complete the praise: This is one of the three or four best books I have every encountered.” - Peter Warshall of The CoEvolution Quarterly.

Wonders of the Natural Mind

“This book will be of great help to readers wishing to find a clear explanation of the Bon tradition, especially with regard to its presentation of the teachings of Dzogchen.” - His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Wonders of the Natural Mind is a presentation of Dzogchen as taught in the Bon tradition. Dzogchen has begun to be familiar to Westerners principally through the teachings of the Nyingmapa school, His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, and other Tibetan teachers residing and teaching Western countries. In Wonders of the Natural Mind, the author presents the Dzogchen teachings based on the Zhang Zhung Nyan Gyud, the fundamental Bon text. The book gives an epitome of the main points of Dzogchen, its relation to the various systems of Bon teaching, and the author’s personal reflections on the practice of Dzogchen in the West.
