18 Adventures of an 11 Dimensional Consciousness By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
This one has a specially lovely color because it includes the word 'consciousness'. And because all those words would seriously annoy the T. Rex. The scientists tell us, with perfectly straight... More > faces, that the world we live in could be 9-dimensional, maybe even more. I prefer 11, although I'm not going to pretend that I can remember WHY. Does it matter? Funnily enough, it matters a lot. All our understanding of the world, everything we see, hear, feel, or imagine, everything we say, all our calculations and all our everyday predictions are based on a 'normal' world of three spatial dimensions, going on its merry way through one-dimensional TIME. And so we work things out according to that ... and we find out we are wrong. So we IGNORE that, and go back to thinking that things MUST be the way they look to us, because that's easier AND it's what we're used to. Except, what a surprise, for US. Which actually means ME ...< Less
10 Adrift. Bereft. Together. By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.67
What shall I say about the volume just BEFORE my SECOND-FAVORITE title? That it's number ten in the series, fills in the space between nine and eleven (between breakfast and elevenses), takes the... More > Expedition one step further, lost as it is and adrift on a sea of whatever-seas-are-made-of? Is that ENOUGH? It's all there is, because I'm in a HURRY to get to DUDLEY, a beacon in the dark if ever there was one ...< Less
9 Weed Whacker Mead By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.67
Yes, I confess it ... this is my favorite title of all. One word (this time around, to fit nicely on the cover image), two words, sometimes a hyphen even; you'll meet him inside, nibbling away at the... More > sad record of the output of the human brain to date, muttering to himself and DETERMINED to clean up the patch if it takes him all day. This is not ACTUALLY fair to WEEDS, which are after all only plants that dare to grow where WE don't want them. THESE 'weeds', sadder than sad, are exactly WHAT WE WANT, WHERE WE WANT THEM: our cherished delusions, superstitions, excuses, rationalizations; but the limbic system, luckily, does not believe that a little lamb is much of a threat; after all, MARY had one of those, and if you've read "Lamb", you'll know how THAT turned out. So go, lamb! ... WHACK those weeds, and clear some space for, ugh!, dare I say the word ... LOGIC ...< Less
8 Wacky Math Models By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
Rather than trying to remember what this volume is about (something to do with the STARTLING insight that EVERYTHING is made of MATH. Does ANYTHING we come up with, however ridiculous, actually ever... More > STARTLE US? To the point of saying "Do it AGAIN. But use your BRAIN this time ... ), I will explain the cover image, obvious though it may be. We are, our brain is, we are built from, we have evolved INTO, a monkey riding on the back of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. We are having a lovely time, being clever, OCCASIONALLY logical but mostly not, chattering away and pulling on the reins, hanging on for dear life; not noticing that we actually have very little control (and mostly, when it matters, NO CONTROL WHATSOEVER) over the QUALITY of our 'thinking' and the USEFULNESS of the behavior we display. We spend our lives angry, or anxious, or depressed, or guilty, or ashamed; we FIGHT, or we FLEE, or we FREEZE and DISAPPEAR. We swallow what we are fed, and regurgitate it in our turn. We play it SAFE. And then we die ...< Less
11 What Would Dudley Do? By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.67
Dudley, as it happens, consists of a VERY small monkey riding an unusual Tyrannosaurus ... one that is at the same time very POWERFUL and very COWARDLY. Oh, wait a moment, what would be unusual about... More > THAT? Refusal to change and willingness to KILL used to be the most useful traits in the world. NOW it's WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE, whenever someone is BIGGER AND LOUDER than you. And if they have MORE GUNS ... NO BRAINER. And if they're SMALLER? You don't need me to figure THAT one out ...< Less
17 Something a Lot More Interesting By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
You won't take this title too seriously, will you? What could really be more interesting that the progress of an Expedition towards its incomprehensible goal? Unless it's something much more... More > interesting than the SELF, which seems to want to MERGE with the Universe in one great moment of transcendent spiritual bliss. Something like, for instance, the Great Untidy Quest for the nuts and bolts of human subjectivity, stripped down to its socks and nowhere to hide ...< Less
15 Pinned to a Brane By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
You won't have noticed, I'm sure, that everything in this series is labeled 'First edition', even though none of it IS. I figured that this would make these even more valuable as the years go by. Who... More > knows, in a billion years these could be selling at Sotheby's for ASTRONOMICAL sums. Better snap them up while you can, because you never know when I will decide that the world has had ENOUGH of what I have to say. So ... Pinned To A Brane ... suppose everything WAS; would that somehow just prove that the Universe doesn't know how to spell? After all, the only world we can ever KNOW is just that, pinned moment-by-moment, frame-by-frame, to the inside workings of OUR brain. And if we ever get to the end of THIS ... we'll have figured out HOW.< Less
14 Under the Sun By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
There are more things under the Sun ... and many of the SUPPOSEDLY intelligent ones will end up with skin cancer. Luckily there is EFUDEX, the 'morning-after' sunscreen. As you can see, I'm filling... More > space again, because YOU are now just following the numbers and I can't for the life of me remember how the story goes. Someone with immense HUBRIS would say "If you do it RIGHT, you only have to do it ONCE".< Less
13 Dis Closure By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
Sometimes lulu won't allow me the title I want. She has something against hyphens and certain capitalizations. On the other hand, SHE doesn't object when I write things that most normal people would,... More > I hope, consider ABNORMAL. Once again I will mention that the important part of all these titles is the NUMBER; because if you read them in that order (if you read them at all), ev-en-shu-ally something will CLICK. It could be a dawning of SENSE. It could be your brain disintegrating. Either way, SOMETHING has been accomplished ...< Less
16: A Self of Parts By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
Somewhere in all this there actually is a section about 'the self' and what it could possibly be. Not HERE, I'm as sure of THAT as I am of anything. It's something like 'the mind', a convenient... More > fiction that gives us the illusion that we can make SENSE out of our subjective view of 'the world'; without all the bother of ACTUALLY trying to make sense of it. The 'mind' is what I have, even though I don't. The 'self' is what I AM, even though I'm not. No-one (except me, apparently) wants to be 'nothing more than' a biological organism with a limited life-span and no significance whatsoever, an accidental by-product of the way things happen to be. Toddling along, making up stories, doing the best I can and falling short of every standard set by 'decent people'.< Less
