Another Father, Another Son By Charles Gidley Wheeler
eBook (PDF): $1.58
Charles Wheeler spent his early years in the idyllic surroundings of the Lake District of northern England. But when he was eight years old his father returned from war service and the family moved... More > south to their cramped home in north London.

Iota is the acronymic name given to God-or-Nature. It stands for the Infinite One which is conceived under the Two Aspects of thought and matter. Following the 17th century philosopher Benedict... More > Spinoza, Wheeler shows that dualism of any sort, whether theological, philosophical or scientific, always leads to contradiction, division and conflict, and that regarding ourselves as parts of Nature and of each other is the only way forward to healing the divisions and conflicts between absolutist religions, cultures and faiths.
