The Isaiah Effect
Author: Gregg Braden
Seventeen hundred years ago, key elements of our ancient heritage were lost, relegated to the esoteric traditions of mystery schools and sacred orders. Among the most empowering of the forgotten elements are references to a science with the power to bring everlasting healing to our bodies and initiate an unprecedented era of peace and cooperation between governments and nations. In his groundbreaking new book, The Isaiah Effect, Gregg Braden turns to the Isaiah Scroll, perhaps the most important of the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in 1946, to offer insight into a powerful form of ancient prayer. In The Isaiah Effect, Braden, author of Awakening to Zero Point and Walking Between the Worlds, combines research in quantum physics with the works of the prophet Isaiah and the ancient Essenes. He demonstrates how prophecies of global catastrophe and suffering may only represent future possibilities, rather than forecast impending doom, and that we have the power to influence those possibilities. In addition to describing multiple futures, the Isaiah texts take us one step further, clearly describing the science of how we choose our futures. Tracing key words of Isaiah's text back to their original language, we discover how he taught a mode of prayer that was lost to the West during Biblical editing in the fourth century. Braden offers detailed accounts of how elements of this mode of prayer have been applied in a variety of situations, ranging from healing life-threatening conditions to entire villages using collective prayer to prevail during the 1998 fires in southern Peru. In each instance, the correlation between the offering of the prayer and a shift of the events in question was beyond coincidence--the prayers had measurable effects! As modern science continues to validate a relationship between our outer and inner worlds, it becomes more likely that a forgotten bridge links the world of our prayers with that of our experience. Each time we engage ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities with Isaiah's life-affirming message of hope, we secure nothing less than our future and the future of the only home we know.

When, in 1984?86, Richard P. Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book. Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science at that time, including Marvin Minsky, Charles Bennett, and John Hopfield. Although the lectures are now thirteen years old, most of the material is timeless and presents a ?Feynmanesque? overview of many standard and some not-so-standard topics in computer science such as reversible logic gates and quantum computers.

An introduction to practical astrometry, dealing with the determination of positions, motions, distances and dimensions of celestial bodies ranging from quasars to artificial satellites. For this 2nd edition, the release of the Hipparcos and Tycho catalogs, the rise in CCD astrometry and the adoption of a new celestial reference frame by the IAU led to a significant modification of the text. And, especially, the outlook for astrometry has been completely rewritten.
The Sinatra Solution
Author: Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D.
Board-certified cardiologist Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra discusses the importance of energy metabolism on cardiovascular health and the positive impact these three energy-supplying nutrients have on the cardiovascular system. He guides you through the basics of energy metabolism and cardiac bioenergetics, and clearly explains the role of coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, and D-ribose in the body and specifically how they affect your heart health. He also provides concise and informative examples of case histories and scientific studies that are testament to the important contribution the supplemental use of these energy-supplying nutrients make in the lives of people with heart disease every day.
An uplifting study of the scientific evidence for the afterlife from an experienced anesthesiologist/intensive care physician • Details meticulously recorded and hospital-verified cases of near-death experiences • Cites scientific research on NDEs to refute the standard objections of doubters and materialists point by point • Explores out-of-body experiences, sessions with mediums, electronic communication with the deceased, and other signs from the afterlife Over the course of his 25-year career as an anesthesiologist and intensive care physician, Jean Jacques Charbonier, M.D., gathered hundreds of accounts of patients who returned from clinical death. Across all of these accounts--from patients with vastly different backgrounds--Dr. Charbonier found striking similarities as well as indisputable proof that these experiences were more than hallucinations. He surveyed other physicians, nurses, and professional caregivers and discovered that their patients described the same experiences as well as exhibited the same positive life transformations afterward. Igniting a scientific quest to learn more, he collected more accounts of near-death experiences as well as out-of-body experiences, attended dozens of sessions with mediums, experimented successfully with electronic communication with the deceased (EVP), interviewed hundreds of people who have cared for the dying, and gathered countless inexplicable stories of “signs” from the afterlife. With each experience he studied, he found himself more firmly believing in the survival of consciousness beyond death. Dr. Charbonier distills his findings into 7 reasons to believe in the afterlife, beginning with the more than 60 million people worldwide who have reported a transcendent afterlife experience. He refutes the standard objections of doubters and materialists point by point, citing scientific research on NDEs and the work of pioneers in the field of consciousness studies such as Raymond Moody and Pim van Lommel. Drawing on meticulously recorded and hospital-verified cases, Dr. Charbonier explains that we should not fear death for ourselves or our loved ones. By releasing our fear of death, we can properly prepare for “the final journey.” As those who have returned from death reveal, death is simply a transition and its lessons enable us to live more fully, peacefully, and happily in the now.
En développant depuis le début des années 1980 une instrumentation technique permettant de manipuler les atomes un à un et de contrôler les interactions de la matière à l'échelle nanométrique, les nanotechnologies ont rendu accessible à l'intervention humaine un monde aux propriétés multiples. On trouve aujourd'hui des nana-objets dans de nombreux produits de consommation courante notamment dans les industries cosmétique et alimentaire ainsi que dans la recherche médicale et l'électronique. Les programmes généreusement dotés de soutien public aux nanotechnologies ambitionnent de prendre en compte, sous la bannière de " l'innovation responsable ", les enjeux sanitaires, environnementaux et éthiques de ce domaine émergent. Fort de ce constat, ce livre met en lumière les questions politiques portées par les nanotechnologies et ouvre des pistes pour le renouvellement du traitement démocratique de ces innovations scientifiques complexes.

Despite having a loving family and a fulfilling career as a university professor, Ryan Kilgore has always held deep resentment and anger toward the father who abandoned him when he was born. When these emotions take their toll on his marriage-and his relationship with his own son-Ryan realizes he must confront these unhealed wounds in order to move forward in his life. While at an academic conference, he embarks on a search to track down his father, Big Bob. Along the way, Ryan encounters friends and acquaintances of Big Bob, while reawakening memories of his childhood. My Greatest Teacher is an inspiring tale of how we can transform suffering and pain into forgiveness and love, and the lessons we can learn through the most difficult challenges we face.
This absorbing intellectual history vividly recreates the unique social, political, and philosophical milieu in which the extraordinary promise of Einstein and scientific contemporaries took root and flourished into greatness. Feuer shows us that no scientific breakthrough really happens by chance; it takes a certain intellectual climate, a decisive tension within the very fabric of society, to spur one man's potential genius into world-shaking achievement. Feuer portrays such men of high imaginative powers as Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, de Broglie, influenced by and influencing the social worlds in which they lived.
Center of the Cyclone
Author: John Lilly
Publisher: Ronin Publishing
In this long-out-of-print counterculture classic, Dr. John C. Lilly takes readers behind the scenes into the inner life of a scientist exploring inner space, or “far-out spaces,” as Lilly called them. The book explains how he derived his theory of the operations of the human mind and brain from his personal experiences and experiments in solitude, isolation, and confinement; LSD; and other methods of mystical experience. It also includes glimpses into Lilly's friendship with such 1960s' notables as Oscar Ichazo, Ram Dass, Timothy Leary, Albert Hofmann, Fritz Perls, and Claudio Narajo. Written for the non-specialist, Center of the Cyclone shows an important, modern thinker at his most personal and profound.

Parallel Scientific Computing
Author: Frédéric Magoules, Fran?ois-Xavier Roux, Guillaume Houzeaux
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
"Scientific computing has become an indispensable tool in numerous fields, such as physics, biology, chemistry, finance and engineering. For example, it enables us, thanks to efficient algorithms adapted to current computers and supercomputers, to simulate complex phenomena, without the help of models or experimentations. Some examples are the structural behaviors of civil engineering structures, the sound level in a theater, a fluid flowing around an aircraft or a Formula 1 car, and the hydrodynamics of a racing yacht. This book presents the scientific computing techniques applied to parallel computing for the numerical simulation of large-scale problems ; these problems mainly result from systems modeled by partial differential equations. Computing concepts are tackled via examples. Implementation and programming techniques resulting from the finite element, finite volume and finite difference methods are presented for direct solvers, iterative solvers and domain decomposition methods, along with an introduction to MPI and OpenMP."
