LSD Experience By Eugene Seaich
Paperback: $13.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
(3 Ratings)
Eugene Seaich's LSD Experience is a gem of a book which is short enough to be read in a day and with enough substance to feed the reader's head and soul for a lifetime. Written over 50 years ago,... More > this little known work is now seeing the light of day and has all the attributes of becoming a classic of psychedelic literature. Connecting with eloquent style and sensitivity the portals of psychology, philosophy, cultural anthropology and spirituality, Seaich discusses and brings closer to our access an awareness of a "far-off land" whose essence is both dream and primal human identity. Poets and religions only offer a small glimpse of such a place while our psyche thirsts for its often forgotten nurturance. We are fortunate that Eugene's grandson Eric Hendrickson has surfaced the FAR-OFF LAND and I invite everyone interested in understanding a higher calling to reflect on the text which also can be of expansive help in navigating to those ports of our long lost homeland.< Less

Homotopy Type Theory (paperback) By Univalent Foundations Project
Paperback: $9.73
Prints in 3-5 business days
Homotopy type theory is a new branch of mathematics that combines aspects of several different fields in a surprising way. It is based on a recently discovered connection between homotopy theory and... More > type theory. It touches on topics as seemingly distant as the homotopy groups of spheres, the algorithms for type checking, and the definition of weak ∞-groupoids. Homotopy type theory offers a new “univalent” foundation of mathematics, in which a central role is played by Voevodsky’s univalence axiom and higher inductive types. The present book is intended as a first systematic exposition of the basics of univalent foundations, and a collection of examples of this new style of reasoning — but without requiring the reader to know or learn any formal logic, or to use any computer proof assistant. We believe that univalent foundations will eventually become a viable alternative to set theory as the “implicit foundation” for the unformalized mathematics done by most mathematicians.< Less

B&W VERSION (diagrams, photographs) – There is a colossal and all-determining challenge taking shape that concerns us all: It is the struggle for the continuation of the human experience.... More > Technological progress has given us many great advantages and will continue to do so. But technological progress is not an end in itself! As long as technology was just one of many facets of human life and as long as it progressed slowly, the mutually exclusive dynamics between humanity’s and technology’s development were not obvious. But this has been changing. If technological development becomes all-engulfing and all-dominant, it will dissolve the soul of our species. And that soul is amazing, beautiful, and precious. Human values and beliefs, cultural diversity and freedom have no inherent worth for technology’s progression. Should we protect basic human aspects – such as our social, cultural, or spiritual ones – for future generations? For more information please visit www.VoluntaryEnslavement.com< Less
