Up to the moment he met Samuel Collister, a man, sentenced to death, he... More > lived in an illusory world. Everything in his life had its place, everything was well organized and perfectly planned – barely worth being called a life but utterly comforting as it let him forget where he once came from. Slowly but surely Samuel started to share his past and his feelings with Shane who suddenly and unexpectedly felt as if he had found a soul mate. He lost his objectivity and signed his fate – he fell in love. „With him I was just Shane Connor. Not more, not less – but all I ever wanted to be.”< Less

#CRITICAL TRANSMEDIA By Phillip Baldwin

Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a book that looks at gadgets. It is a book of project proposals and project completions. It is a book written over the period of three months while lecturing on the themes within... More > Shakespeare’s Tempest. Within that play we find terra incognita, geomantic wish fulfillments, uncaged libido, revenge, and illusory wilderness: everything we would find within our new social media. It is a book that looks at the mobile, pervasive, obsessive, limiting, thanatic, libidinous, tribalizing, swarming, informative, dis-informative, prosthetic, novel, and primitive. This book is a series of essays, observations, and project proposals that views the telematic from a world that swims in the 'fiat currency' that was unhinged from real gold over forty years ago. It pokes at the world of 'shadow currency' in the form of narratives. Have stories, education, criticism, and expression been unhinged from the 'gold' of the human?< Less
Cultural Intelligence for Winning the Peace By Juliana Geran Pilon
eBook (PDF): $16.99
The essays in the anthology, Cultural Intelligence for Winning the Peace, edited by Dr. Juliana Geran Pilon, address the challenges of taking into account the cultural "human terrain" where... More > America's enemies operate. They include: the military utility of understanding adversary culture; factoring in culture as we tackle the challenges of asymmetric conflict; the importance of avoiding a ‘cookie cutter' approach to disparate societies; the need to address the constantly changing nature of culture; the phenomenon of female suicide bombers; as well as on-the-job learning for information officers finding themselves ill-trained and under-prepared in Iraq and Afghanistan. And, finally, the need to incorporate cultural considerations in strategic communication, the critically important ingredient of the next - some have called it the fifth - generation of warfare, whose ultimate success is measured by an enduring rather than illusory peace.< Less

The Sam Harris Delusion By Mike Hockney
eBook (ePub): $6.09
There are two kinds of intellectual: Philosophers and Sophists. The former seek the absolute truth while the latter seek the “practical” truth that brings them worldly prestige and... More > success. The weak-minded are far more influenced by Sophists than Philosophers, to the severe detriment of the intellectual progress of humanity. Philosophers have a position based on rationalism, idealism, metaphysics and mathematics, while Sophists hold a position reflecting empiricism, materialism, physics and science. One of the most prominent Sophists in today’s world is Sam Harris, an American controversialist who supports scientism, atheism, and the claim that free will is illusory. All of his positions are closely connected, and the purpose of this book is to expose the fallacies that lie at the heart of the Sophists’ worldview, and Harris’s in particular. Ultimately, the difference between Philosophy and Sophistry reduces to the difference between mathematics and science, and how each relates to ultimate reality.< Less
Why Math Must Replace Science By Mike Hockney
eBook (ePub): $6.40
The greatest catastrophe in intellectual history was to regard physics as real and mathematics as an unreal abstraction. In fact, mathematics is noumenal (true) reality, and physics is phenomenal... More > (illusory) reality. Mathematics tells you what things are in themselves, and physics tells you how they appear to us. Mathematics is the perfect ground of existence, defined by the God Equation. It’s the source of causation, determinism and objective reality; all of the things now formally denied by physics, which claims that observable reality is indeterministically born of unreal, potentiality wavefunctions. It’s time to replace the scientific method with the mathematical method. It’s time to recognize that true reality is intelligible, not sensible; noumenal, not phenomenal; unobservable, not observable; metaphysical, not physical; hidden, not manifest; rationalist, not empiricist; necessary, not contingent. Don't follow the crowd. Think for yourself.< Less

The life and paranormal experiences of the author from childhood, in an isolated and miserable environment, in a village lost in the desert of North Peru, saturated by folkore and the practice of... More > shamanism. He understood that meditation is a creation of the mind, opening the door towards the truth, to master oneself and seek the path towards knowledge and wisdom. When thought ceases to be, in an instant, this is the moment the spirit finds itself facing its reality. At this superior level of conscience, meditation does not exist and the spirit begins to realise its own liberation from transitory and illusory material existence. A reading for those wishing to discover the path that already exists inside them. Only an instant is necessary to break the barrier of all schemas that prevent discovering one's origins and Divine life.< Less
Winter Street Studio Paintings By Stephen Starr
Paperback: $16.90
Prints in 3-5 business days
With the textural surface and atmospheric depth of the work, Starr works to invoke the sensuality of the emotion into an environment of the known and, perhaps, a bit of the unknown as well. The... More > aesthetic and emotive qualities he depicts in his paintings, the atmosphere, if you will, relate to the familiarity of the unseen. The unknown places explored in the work become, in a sense, mindscapes that lack any discernible imagery but rather emphasize illusory qualities that merely reference the tangible. Starr’s use of light, depth and the intricate layers of space he portrays, ultimately, render his own inherent need and desire to embrace his artistry. The completed work reflects the tangible path of the artist’s process, his exploration, and his objectified thought. Thus, the subject of Starr’s work may be found in the painterly process which serves as a vehicle for unfolding the path of his artistry and psyche.< Less
Twice Told Over By Adela Najarro

For its eye of the all-seeing crocodile half in dark waters and half in the prey-light of death and hunger, for its electric rush of love, its gambles with destiny, for its deep knowledge of... More > borderlessness, the slippage of love and dissolution into something like Mystery makes this collection a rare magic. And perhaps, because of its woman eye, illusory skin, bleached colors and its various upside-down taboos where words and love-deeds are “hechas para atrás / pushed aside,” I commend this book. It is a surreal mathematics, a travelogue to ancestors, a gypsy’s deck of last-breath, plotting flowers ditching toward the sun. A tour de force, magnificent, lovely, sculpted, drenched with Borges, Sexton, Najarro. A radically new Latina verse. Juan Felipe Herrera Poet Laureate of California.< Less
