The Mysterious Origins of Hybrid Man
Did we evolve from apes, or are we all descendants of Adam and Eve? Why is the “missing link” still missing? Is the dumb luck of natural selection valid?
Piecing together the protohistory of humanity through anthropology, genetics, paleolinguistics, and indigenous traditions, Susan B. Martinez offers an entirely original alternative to Darwin’s evolution: Modern humanity did not evolve but is a mosaic of mixed ancestry, the result of eons of cross-breeding and retro-breeding among different groups, including Cro-Magnon, Neanderthal, hobbits, giants, and Africa’s “Lucy” and “Zinj.” Martinez shows that there were multiple “Gardens of Eden”...

The Beginning and the End
In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions:
Does our universe have a beginning and an end or is it cyclic?
Are we alone in the universe?
What is the role of intelligent life, if any, in cosmic evolution?
Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe's deepest mysteries.
Vidal shows how the fine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations.
He also explores whether natural...

Highlights: The War Against Sleep
Not a review, simply a few passages from the book.
Beelzebub’s Tales to his Grandson, which Gurdjieff regarded as the essence of his teaching, is over twelve hundred pages long. Ouspensky’s In Search of the Miraculous, undoubtedly the best summary of Gurdjieff’s ideas, is over four hundred. Even for the intelligent and well-disposed reader, this represents a considerable problem. According to Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, it is an inescapable problem. The length demands from the reader a certain effort which is indispensable if the ideas are to be grasped and digested, rather than merely swallowed whole.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third, it is accepted as self-evident — Arthur Schopenhauer
Truth when broken down into its basic elements comprises of Logic, Common Sense and Circumstantial Evidence. Logic is the principles of reasoning, especially of the structure of propositions as distinguished from their content and of method and validity in deductive reasoning Common sense is sound judgement. Circumstantial evidence is relating to, or dependent on circumstances or physical evidence All three elements have to coincide with each other for it to be the truth.
