Lisa Roberton’s Magenta Soul Whip by Lisa Robertson

Lisa Roberton’s Magenta Soul Whip by Lisa Robertson
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1,7 Mb
Overview: Lisa Robertson writes poems that mine the past – its ideas, its personages, its syntax – to construct a lexicon of the future. Her poems both court and cuckold subjectivity by unmasking its fundament of sex and hesitancy, the coil of doubt in its certitude. Reading her laments and utopias, we realize that language – whiplike – casts ahead of itself a fortuitous form. The form brims here pleasurably with dogs, movie stars, broths, painting’s detritus, Latin and pillage. Erudite and startling, the poems in Lisa Robertson’s Magenta Soul Whip, occasional works written over the past fifteen years, turn vestige into architecture, chagrin into resplendence. In them, we recognize our grand, saddened century.

Time and the Soul by Jacob Needleman

Time and the Soul: Where Has All the Meaningful Time Gone and Can We Get It Back? by Jacob Needleman
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.2MB
Overview: In Time and the Soul Jacob Needleman uses stories-of a middle-aged psychiatrist going back in time to encounter his younger self; of a mysterious meeting in the Central Asian desert; of the mystic master Hermes Trimegistus; as well as stories from the Bhagavad-Gita, the Bible, and other wisdom traditions-to illuminate the great mystery of time and to help us resolve our increasingly dysfunctional relationship to it.

Nearly everyone feels stress and anxiety over what’s become known as time poverty. "Time management" techniques treat these symptoms by making our busyness more efficient, but not the underlying cause. Needleman shows that we can get more out of time by breaking free of our illusions about it. He helps us experience time more purposefully and meaningfully. He provides parables, reflections, and a unique mental exercise to give us a new understanding of time. By transforming the way we understand and experience time, this powerful book gives us the equanimity and perspective we need to make the most of the time we are given. "A tranquil heart," Needleman writes,"is never defeated by time."

The Dual Soul Connection by Suzy Hansen

The Dual Soul Connection: The Alien Agenda for Human Advancement by Suzy Hansen
Requirements: .MOBI reader, 1013 KB
Overview: At age twenty, Suzy Hansen’s life changed. On a lonely country road in broad daylight, her car was engulfed by a massive ball of white light, resulting in ninety minutes of missing time and the unfathomable experience of “waking” after dark. The experience resulted in her discovery of an alternative reality time spent with extraterrestrials on-board their craft since childhood, and in fact, since her inception as a soul.

The Dual Soul Connection uniquely combines absorbing details of the life-long alien encounters of UFO researcher and experiencer Suzy Hansen (NZ), with scientific examination by Dr. Rudy Schild, Emeritus Astrophysicist, Harvard/Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics (USA).

Hansen and Dr. Schild address issues of spirituality, consciousness, modes of telepathy and alien culture, alongside scientific concepts of advanced physics, holograms and organic “conscious” technology all within the framework of contact with these non-human species.

The Soul of the Stranger by Joy Ladin

The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective (HBI Series on Jewish Women) by Joy Ladin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 877 KB
Overview: Reading some of the best-known Torah stories through the lens of transgender experience, Joy Ladin explores fundamental questions about how religious texts, traditions, and the understanding of God can be enriched by transgender perspectives, and how the Torah and trans lives can illuminate one another. Drawing on her own experience and lifelong reading practice, Ladin shows how the Torah, a collection of ancient texts that assume human beings are either male or female, speaks both to practical transgender concerns, such as marginalization, and to the challenges of living without a body or social role that renders one intelligible to others―challenges that can help us understand a God who defies all human categories. These creative, evocative readings transform our understanding of the Torah’s portrayals of God, humanity, and relationships between them.

Evolution of Sensitive Soul by Simona Ginsburg, Eva Jablonka

The Evolution of the Sensitive Soul: Learning and the Origins of Consciousness by Simona Ginsburg, Eva Jablonka
Requirements: .PDF reader, 36 MB
Overview: A new theory about the origins of consciousness that finds learning to be the driving force in the evolutionary transition to basic consciousness.
What marked the evolutionary transition from organisms that lacked consciousness to those with consciousness-to minimal subjective experiencing, or, as Aristotle described it, “the sensitive soul”? In this book, Simona Ginsburg and Eva Jablonka propose a new theory about the origin of consciousness that finds learning to be the driving force in the transition to basic consciousness. Using a methodology similar to that used by scientists when they identified the transition from non-life to life, Ginsburg and Jablonka suggest a set of criteria, identify a marker for the transition to minimal consciousness, and explore the far-reaching biological, psychological, and philosophical implications.
After presenting the historical, neurobiological, and philosophical foundations of their analysis, Ginsburg and Jablonka propose that the evolutionary marker of basic or minimal consciousness is a complex form of associative learning, which they term unlimited associative learning (UAL). UAL enables an organism to ascribe motivational value to a novel, compound, non-reflex-inducing stimulus or action, and use it as the basis for future learning. Associative learning, Ginsburg and Jablonka argue, drove the Cambrian explosion and its massive diversification of organisms. Finally, Ginsburg and Jablonka propose symbolic language as a similar type of marker for the evolutionary transition to human rationality-to Aristotle’s “rational soul.”
