Book excerpt: Music and nature inspire my writings so I traveled extensively during the writing process of this book. I began writing this philosophy treatise at the heart of America by the banks of the Missouri River, where I used to drown myself in the magnificent music of the wilderness when I went on my evening walks. I would stroll solo in the woods and emerge to rest on a bench facing an ocean blue sky, and abysmal thoughts would come to me of their own accord like déjà vus. There, I would sit and sup on the cool evening breeze; and witness our great golden star fall behind the distant red horizon like a sinking ship, and the beatific and tragic sight of that dying day would fill me up with emotions. In that solitude where a person hears their own thoughts speak loudest, I would give into a deep ocean of contemplation, and examine the nature of the world like a tyrant beholding an atlas of the world. I would ask myself deep philosophical questions like ¿if a seed growing into a tree, and a tree growing into a forest is only a brief moment in the history of time, then how much shorter is my life in this world? And if earth is only a dust particle floating in the desert of space, then how infinitesimal am I in the infinite infinities and diversities of nature? Who or what put me in this island called earth? Am I just another artifact in the museum of the universe or am I something higher than a flower or a bird or a crystal?¿ I would compile thoughts until my thoughts thoughts reach the limit and my mind nearly faints from exhaustion. I read nature and wrote at the park until the moon rose and stars arrived to light up the heaven like an army of glowing fireflies. Portions of the book were written by the snowy mountain tops of Utah, and at the beaches of Lake Michigan whose pure blue water ebbs away and flows towards the windy metropolis of Chicago. I then traveled abroad to Africa to collect and recollect my thoughts in the primordial Garden of Eden in South Sudan with its billions of birds, animals, and insect¿s chirping, buzzing, squealing, screaming, and singing in the orchestra of life playing in the theatre of Nature. I meditated and contemplated about life by the shores of Lake Victoria, which reflects the white clouds of Uganda¿s clear sky in its surface like a gigantic mirror on the ground. Then, I went on an intellectual mecca to Europe, visiting intellectualistic sites like the British Library where Marx wrote the most consequential book of modernity. I also went to the British Museum and Oxford University to affirm and confirm the contents of this discourse. The book was actually edited in London. It is called ¿The Future Affects The Past¿ because the subject of déjà vu is the object the other subjects of the book revolve around. It was premeditated by fate before I was even born that I would script this book. Prior to taking my first breath of life; before my heart beat for the first time in this world, I already wrote this book, and it was a matter of time before destiny made it occur into actuality. Wisely so, I do not call this book my own, because I know that infinity is its source, just like the infinitely ancient and creative Nature is the source of all arts and inventions. Nature had copyright on all things. This book is an avalanche of past and present knowledge; it¿s a culmination of precedent human wisdom; it¿s a synthesis of the insights of many books and many minds. I am just a instrument used by greater Nature. Nature is a tremendous bow that shoots arrows from infinite distance away and infinite time ago, and I am only one of Nature¿s arrows of fire who live to illuminate the dark world of ignorance with philosophical knowledge.

Book excerpt: "The Knowledge of the Past and the Future" is a logical knowledge series about human existence, meant virtually to equip one with every logical tool necessary that is bound to make one to attain a good success. It does not only reveal that every success is not a good one but also what one has to do in order to be exceedingly successful. The author further reveals and explains one of the primary causes of people's lack of a good success, saying that they do not have a logicality thinking ability enough to understand the human existence, in general, and how an existence, in particular, is bound to live in life. In other words, a great many individuals are so ignorant of who they are, what the human existence entails, and how they should conceive living that they now end up struggling to live a successful life. Overall, it unveils how greatly one's past and one's future must agree with each other in an abiding and/or constant coalition, for one's existence to bring forth productiveness and a good, everlasting success.

This book was released on 1997-12-04 with total page 320 pages. Book excerpt: Why is the future so different from the past? Why does the past affect the future and not the other way around? What does quantum mechanics really tell us about the world? In this important and accessible book, Huw Price throws fascinating new light on some of the great mysteries of modern physics, and connects them in a wholly original way. Price begins with the mystery of the arrow of time. Why, for example, does disorder always increase, as required by the second law of thermodynamics? Price shows that, for over a century, most physicists have thought about these problems the wrong way. Misled by the human perspective from within time, which distorts and exaggerates the differences between past and future, they have fallen victim to what Price calls the "double standard fallacy": proposed explanations of the difference between the past and the future turn out to rely on a difference which has been slipped in at the beginning, when the physicists themselves treat the past and future in different ways. To avoid this fallacy, Price argues, we need to overcome our natural tendency to think about the past and the future differently. We need to imagine a point outside time -- an Archimedean "view from nowhen" -- from which to observe time in an unbiased way. Offering a lively criticism of many major modern physicists, including Richard Feynman and Stephen Hawking, Price shows that this fallacy remains common in physics today -- for example, when contemporary cosmologists theorize about the eventual fate of the universe. The "big bang" theory normally assumes that the beginning and end of the universe will be very different. But if we are to avoid the double standard fallacy, we need to consider time symmetrically, and take seriously the possibility that the arrow of time may reverse when the universe recollapses into a "big crunch." Price then turns to the greatest mystery of modern physics, the meaning of quantum theory. He argues that in missing the Archimedean viewpoint, modern physics has missed a radical and attractive solution to many of the apparent paradoxes of quantum physics. Many consequences of quantum theory appear counterintuitive, such as Schrodinger's Cat, whose condition seems undetermined until observed, and Bell's Theorem, which suggests a spooky "nonlocality," where events happening simultaneously in different places seem to affect each other directly. Price shows that these paradoxes can be avoided by allowing that at the quantum level the future does, indeed, affect the past. This demystifies nonlocality, and supports Einstein's unpopular intuition that quantum theory describes an objective world, existing independently of human observers: the Cat is alive or dead, even when nobody looks. So interpreted, Price argues, quantum mechanics is simply the kind of theory we ought to have expected in microphysics -- from the symmetric standpoint. Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point presents an innovative and controversial view of time and contemporary physics. In this exciting book, Price urges physicists, philosophers, and anyone who has ever pondered the mysteries of time to look at the world from the fresh perspective of Archimedes' Point and gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, the universe around us, and our own place in time.

This book was released on 2012-06-28 with total page 360 pages. Book excerpt: The term 'temporality' often refers to the traditional mode of the way time is: a linear procession of past, present and future. As philosophers will note, this is not always the case. Christine Ross builds on current philosophical and theoretical examinations of time and applies them to the field of contemporary art: films, video installations, sculpture and performance works. Ross first provides an interdisciplinary overview of contemporary studies on time, focusing on findings in philosophy, psychology, sociology, communications, history, postcolonial studies, and ecology. She then illustrates how contemporary artistic practices play around with what we consider linear time. Engaging the work of artists such as Guido van der Werve, Melik Ohanian, Harun Farocki, and Stan Douglas, allows investigation though the art, as opposed to having art taking an ancillary role. The Past is the Present; It's the Future Too forces the reader to understand the complexities of the significance of temporal development in new artistic practices.

This book was released on 2017-10-01 with total page 356 pages. Book excerpt: For much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the British East India Company consolidated its rule over India, evolving from a trading venture to a colonial administrative force. Yet its territorial gains far outpaced its understanding of the region and the people who lived there, and its desperate efforts to gain knowledge of the area led to the 1815 appointment of army officer Colin Mackenzie as the first Surveyor General of India. This volume carefully reconstructs the life and career of Mackenzie, showing how the massive survey of India that he undertook became one of the most spectacular and wide-ranging knowledge production initiatives in British colonial history.

This book was released on 2016-04-19 with total page 352 pages. Book excerpt: “One of the most important books of our modern era” –Amb. Jaime de Bourbon For anyone struggling with conflict, this book can transform you. Negotiating the Nonnegotiable takes you on a journey into the heart and soul of conflict, providing unique insight into the emotional undercurrents that too often sweep us out to sea. With vivid stories of his closed-door sessions with warring political groups, disputing businesspeople, and families in crisis, Daniel Shapiro presents a universally applicable method to successfully navigate conflict. A deep, provocative book to reflect on and wrestle with, this book can change your life. Be warned: This book is not a quick fix. Real change takes work. You will learn how to master five emotional dynamics that can sabotage conflict outside your awareness: 1. Vertigo: How can you avoid getting emotionally consumed in conflict? 2. Repetition compulsion: How can you stop repeating the same conflicts again and again? 3. Taboos: How can you discuss sensitive issues at the heart of the conflict? 4. Assault on the sacred: What should you do if your values feel threatened? 5. Identity politics: What can you do if others use politics against you? In our era of discontent, this is just the book we need to resolve conflict in our own lives and in the world around us.
