It’s a new year, time to kick it off with some new titles!
Robert Waggoner and Caroline McCready
Aimed at beginners, Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple shows the reader how to enter and fully experience lucid dreaming. Among the amazing things Waggoner and McCready teach readers are how to:
- consciously decide what actions to perform
- explore dream space (or the contents of your subconscious)
- interact with dream figures
- conduct personal and scientific experiments
- be free of waking state limitations (e.g. flying, walking through walls)
This book approaches lucid dreaming from a more cognitive psychology stance, and focuses more on how to lucid dream and how to use lucid dream techniques for person growth, insight and transformation.
“Very well written and non-technical, [this book is] an excellent source of information. Highly recommended!” – Jonathan V. Wright, MD, author of Natural Hormone Replacement and founder of The Tahoma Clinic
This is a book about choices – for all cancer sufferers and their families. It’s about making good choices based on information and not fear. It’s also a treasure trove of top information about alternatives to chemotherapy and an easy and fascinating read. Bond spoke with over 60 of the world’s leading cancer specialists and holistic healers who were getting remarkable results with everything from hydrogen peroxide therapies, juiced cannabis, high-dose vitamin C injections, coffee enemas (Gerson Method), eliminating sugar from the diet, drink green vegetable juices, and infrared saunas. You Can Say NO to Chemo is a great and inspiring read for anyone wanting to explore alternative options, build their body’s own resource to heal and restore itself, or find ways to supplement conventional care.
“Sure-footed guides through the treacherous landscapes of infinite possibility, RU Sirius and Jay Cornell are lucid, witty, and stealthily profound. Transcendence is a refreshingly pro-human report on transhumanism and the ‘Rapture of the Nerd.'” – Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now
Transhumanism is an international movement that advocates the use of science and technology to overcome the “natural” limitations experienced by humanity, through such developments as:
- The Singularity – the creation of machine intelligences that exceed the capacities of our biological brains
- the ability to replicate individual minds and put them into solid-state bodies or virtual environments
- individual control over mental and emotional states for enhancing functionalities and/or ecstasies
Some of this is happening now, while some is still in the minds of dreamers. In nearly ninety A-Z entries, Transcendence provides a multi-layered look at the accelerating advances in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, genomics, space exploration, robotics along with other topics. It introduces the culture around Transhumanism, covering all the geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist movement.
