This book of poetry deals with the conflict where science is dominant in working its wonders, and the religious has become questionable regarding its relevance. It results in our culture’s tendency to view science as our major source of defining and controlling reality. This is suggested in Arthur C. Clarks novel, Childhood’s End, as well as in the classic Kubrick film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. The point being that we are no longer children dependent upon a father, but are on our own, alone.
Science utilises information of the external world, ie. collection of data and statistics, but is weak in its ability to cross the boundary into the internal world of the individual. In fact, it frequently disparages claims of noetic witnessing as fancy, hysteria, illusion, or outright psychosis. The poems are a mixture of fantasy and reality, leaving the reader to determine their personal view. The two convictions noted have consequences. Our culture’s present absolute trust of science in all knowledge leaves a sense of control, but results in a terrifying feeling of alienation in a cold universe. The religious view, having a quality of support, offers comfort of hope, but at the price of having to submit to a power greater than ourselves.
Speculation is that our world of common experience, with its mix of good and evil within us, as well as without, is in fact an odyssey of repetition and judgement. It is our home, it is Purgatory.
As mankind is moving onto the next stage of its evolution, spiritual maturity in order to reach balance, which will be a golden age, human beings will have to choose, with a united voice, to transcend the current paradigm of division and violence. It is thus paramount that each individual understands his or her role for the advent of this future. There are decisions to be made at two levels: collective action and individual action. At the collective level, we must end wars and rethink some legalizations.
At the individual level, which is the main focus of this book, emphasis is put on each person’s ability to contribute to collective progress by listening to one’s inner voice and by overcoming the social constructions that enchain people’s minds. Often times, different fears prevent us from being ourselves and different preconceived ideas lead us to believe that there might not be enough resources for all or that others might be an obstacle to our wellbeing. The author is inviting the reader to overcome these personal challenges in order for all of us to feel better.

Life is a process of mutual persuasion. Whatever our walk of life much of our everyday energy in interpersonal, intergroup and international relations is directed at trying to get others to do as we want, to change their behavior or beliefs. Change can evoke resistance, tensions rise, people find themselves in conflicts they cannot see a way out of. They precondition talks; become entrapped by escalation dynamics; struggle to listen effectively; misjudge one another’s intentions, capacity, commitment or competencies; and make choices whose consequences they haven’t thought through. Current and future relations become marooned on unresolved issues from the past. Some see better returns in perpetuating than resolving differences. Predatory neighbours and difficult political, social and economic conditions reduce the wriggle room for creative problem-solving.
Drawing on 35 years of experience as a mediator in a changing South Africa, as a conflict scholar, and as a trainer across over 30 countries Mark Anstey shares insights into how people have broken through such impasses.
Two revolutions are happening now in the 21st century. One is the explosion in cross-world communication and travel. The other is the acceleration of English as a world language. Why the World is Speaking English gives facts, opinions, speculation and observations on the growing use of English, its creation, growth and spread, strengths and controversies, competitive advantages, cost benefits, and suggests that now is probably a ripe time for a world language.It can inform, provoke, infuriate and amuse readers, but it is very readable and relevant to the times we live in. A must-read for anyone interested in English, languages, controversies, education or communications.
What do we actually see and how has it conditioned our way of thinking? This is the question and starting-point for an investigation that will span the vast panorama of imagemanagement that bombards our visual culture.The Art of Voyeurism is an examination, exploring our visual senses that have been instigated through art and all its glorious side-effects since the beginning of manâ€™s time on this evolving planet.This exploration is based on visual management and the methods in which the artist, throughout history, has been manipulating history to forward his own desire and career. It explores how, through predetermined acts of voyeuristic ideas, artists have incorporated their concepts within their surrounding environments and personal mandates in advancing their reputations. The Art of Voyeurism examines and questions our acceptance of the many facets of art. It examines how the artists' own desires have been morphed into contemporary society through their many varied representations and executions, and how they have found ways of manipulating our sense of seeing into history textbooks.
I had been a volunteer teacher for years 7-8 in the New Zealand public school system of ‘Bible in School’, but there was a move, as our country became more secular and multicultural, to eliminate Christian teaching from our schools. I had concentrated on the wisdom literature and parables of the Bible and applied it to the everyday life of my students – basically, situation ethics with the Christian Bible, as well as reason as the authority. On going back to university for more academic qualifications in this field, I discovered that there was no likelihood of any ethical system based on the teachings of any particular religion being universally accepted, so I concentrated on finding ethical principles that were acceptable to the main religions and used them as the basis for consistent ethical reasoning in a multi-cultural society. My book examines these ethical principles and applies them to everyday situations. It starts with a short biography – an examination of my own background and my qualifications for writing such a book.
This book has been written to offer all those working with young people a consistent system of ethical reasoning. It will also be useful to new immigrants who need to understand the basics of democratic government and the general ethical standards of the society in which they are now living. The four simple ethical principles offered here are acceptable to all main religions and are based not on the teachings of any one particular religion, but on the wisdom of the past and reason for today.
This is a book on how the medical system has led to an ongoing mafia system throughout the western world and has led to the few who get cured and the many who get destroyed by the legal medical system and some who even die from it, which is very much like how a mortgage system to property development works. The few at the top gain everything while the many at the bottom pay the price for it by taking the risks of being drugged and experimented with, while being told it’s the healthcare system. It’s to show how far someone today must go to be cured, and why more people need to demand cures than just accept the system of healthcare when they’re the consumers of this system, keeping the majority of those in it employed. With an aging population now growing around the world, this industry has become the biggest industry in the world and has created a cancer on itself by profiting off sickness rather than curing it!
