The Kingship of Self-Control: Individual Problems and Possibilities By William George Jordan

Prints in 3-5 business days
The Kingship of Self-Control is an inspiring and motivating manual which instructs on the behavior best suited for attaining happiness and a steady, fulfilling existence. Much as with William... More > Jordan's other books, this work advocates that the reader should train his thought processes and senses to the point where they are masters of their own destiny. The reader can spot the difference between this book's practical advice and what is gained from formal education, which instils only dry facts and mostly unusable knowledge in students. The author, working in the high octane urban landscapes of both his native New York City and Chicago, noticed certain maladies of the human condition. Many people he met were worrisome (which Jordan terms 'the American disease') and would needlessly over-complicate or over-rationalize things in their heads. The phenomena of regret, whereby people wish over and over to have another chance of life, is another thing Jordan condemns as self-defeating.< Less

More > come and whither do we go. —Ahmad Saidi version and concludes, eventually, after coming full circle from his deconstructions of religious myth-takes, Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
Before we too into the Dust descend;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and -- sans End! —FitzGerald version which philosophy I totally agree with, although, The search for the ultimate truth sublime Of all that is leads us wise through its clime, Both within and without—a swelling quest; For then we know this place for the first time. —Austin P.

Austin's Golden Rubaiyat Ornamented By Austin Torney
Hardcover: $74.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This color illustrated 8.25x10.75 hardcover edition contains the ornamented crème de la crème of my Omaresque style quatrains, as selected from the larger volume of ‘Austin's... More > Rubaiyat’. These are not translations, but my own inventions. Prologue: Inspired by Omar, I have endeavored to capture his spirit for more modern times, although I have surely been influenced by Edward FitzGerald’s translated gems. There is a companion prose version, ‘The Triumph of Life, Love, and Being’, in which a loving couple take a long, picaresque journey through the countryside to explore the joys and follies of the human condition, living out the quatrains. The Discovery: Long before I’d ever heard of Omar Khayyàm, I had come to some of the same conclusions as had he, or so my friend told me one day, saying that I was already living out and proving Omar’s philosophy. Illuminations: A few of the quatrains were obtained from my other poetry books, which poems in their full text can be found in ‘Poetic Epics’.< Less

Book is described the arragement of the Immortality. This is the scientific prediction of the non-biological (electronic) civilization and immortality of human being. Such a prognosis is predicated... More > upon a new law, discovered by the author, for the development of complex systems. According to this law, every self-copying system tends to be more complex than the previous system, provided that all external conditions remain the same. The consequences are disastrous: humanity will be replaced by a new civilization created by intellectual robots. These creatures, whose intellectual and mechanical abilities will far exceed those of man, will require neither food nor oxygen to sustain their existence. Capable of developing science, technology and their own intellectual abilities thousands of times faster than humans can, they will, in essence, be eternal. The publication is supplemented with new achievements in the science of immortality (Ch.8 of the Appendix).< Less
