The Quantum Doctor: A Quantum Physicist Explains the Healing Power of Integral by Amit Goswami
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 584 MB
Overview: For quantum physicist Amit Goswami, medicine is a timely area of application for the new science based on the primacy of consciousness. This new science has a spectacular ability to integrate conventional science, spirituality, and healing. If any field needs integration, says Goswami, it is medicine and healing.
Goswami boldly reinterprets the leading methods of alternative medicine – homeopathy, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Ayurveda, and conventional medicine in this new edition of his popular book. He shows how these seemingly different models can be combined into a new system of integrative medicine and offers profound insights into the relationship between physics and consciousness.
This approach offers physicians and patients a whole new way of applying healthcare with a greater potential for healing and could be the basis for a major paradigm shift in medicine.

Who is Who?: The Philosophy of Doctor Who by Kevin S. Decker
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.4 Mb
Overview: When you have been wandering the cosmos from one end of eternity to another for nearly a thousand years, what’s your philosophy of life, the universe, and everything?
Doctor Who is 50 years’ old in 2013. Through its long life on television and beyond it has inspired much debate due to the richness and complexity of the metaphysical and moral issues that it poses. This is the first in-depth philosophical investigation of Doctor Who in popular culture. From 1963’s An Unearthly Child through the latest series, it considers continuity and change in the pictures that the program paints of the nature of truth and knowledge, science and religion, space and time, good and evil, including the uncanny, the problem of evil, the Doctor’s complex ethical motivations, questions of persisting personal identity in the Time Lord processes of regeneration, the nature of time travel through ‘wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff, how quantum theory affects our understanding of time; and the nature of the mysterious and irrational in the Doctor’s universe.

A Doctor’s Dictionary: Writings on Culture & Medicine by Iain Bamforth
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.8 Mb
Overview: In this pithy abecedarium, doctor and poet Iain Bamforth takes a close look at the conflict of values embodied in what we call medicine-never entirely a science and no longer quite the art it used to be. Bamforth brings his wide experience of medicine around the world, from the high-tech American Hospital of Paris to the community health centers of Papua, together with his engaging interest in the stranger manifestations of medical matters in relation to art, literature, and culture-such as the mysterious “Stendhal’s syndrome,” which caused 106 tourists in Florence to be hospitalized due to an overload of sublime Renaissance art.
