Astronomy for the Layman
Reality Before Belief
By Carl Zimmerling, Rainbow Books
This book is an introduction to basic sciences with emphasis on
astronomy, designed specifically
for the layman. Topics covered include: a critical look at
major religions and their prophecies;
what really influences life and death; relationships between
humans and other, often physically
superior animals; "Life after death - Reincarnation" - is it
possible?; and the most creditable
UFO encounters and possible alien visits of the past. All this,
in an entertaining, non-textbook
style! The author is a longtime amateur astronomer and science
buff who has widely read the
religions of the world, and has studied them as they relate to
what dramatic scientific events, such
as the new views from the Hubble Telescope, are teaching us.

Everything you always wanted to know about the Special theory of
Relativity - 3rd Edition
but were afraid to ask
By Kenneth Knight
The layman wishing to explore special relativity will feel like
the nursery rhyme character who, upon entering the home of the three bears,
found the porridge to be either too hot or too cold. For most books on
special relativity are usually either too difficult to understand, suitable only
for readers skilled in mathematics, or too simple, stating the various equations
but offering no explanation of how they were derived.
In this book the author attempts to steer a middle course.
As a result a general understanding of the subject can be gained merely by a
careful reading. There is some math. involved though most of it is
pretty straight forward. Unfortunately there does have to be some math. if
the subject is to be covered properly.

LifeCode: From egg to embryo by self-organization
By Stuart Pivar
REJECT MAINSTREAM GENETICS FOR NEW THEORY OF HOW THE HUMAN BODY
In the foreword to the new book by Stuart
Pivar, LIFECODE, From Egg to Embryo by Self-Organization, Darwin
scholar Richard Milner directs attention to the recent landmark
report (June 14, 2007) in which Human Genome Project Director Francis
Collins calls the long-accepted model of genetics “badly flawed.”
A week later, the NY Times Science Times reported that scores of
scientists on the ENCODE Project concluded that, after fifty years
of genetic research, they don’t really understand what genes
do, or how they work.
LIFECODE presents an alternative theory
of evolution which contends that the embryo is formed by self-organization,
as are crystals, rather than by a genetic code subject to natural
selection. Accompanying illustrations depict hypothetical construction
blueprints for the various body forms.
Biological self-organization has long been
a contending alternate theory for the code of life; recent proponents
include evolutionary biologists Stephen Jay Gould and Brian Goodwin.
In a review of LIFECODE, Robert Hazen calls
the model plausible, worthy of publication and further study. Professor
Hazen is a leading NASA Origins of Life scientist at the Carnegie
Institute in Washington, DC. Other supporters are Dimitar Sasselov,
Director of the Harvard Origins of Life Initiative, evolutionary
biologist Brian Goodwin, author of “How the Leopard Changed
The new theory may counter Intelligent Design
by providing a more cogent account of evolution than does Darwinian

The Next Evolution
A Blueprint for Transforming the Planet
By Jack Reed
As we know, the world faces many challenges at the close of the millennium. These problems are now so severe and so interconnected that to try to solve any one of them within our present model of living is at best a Band-Aid approach. As a result, the projections are that our quality of life will greatly diminish in the next few decades. Knowing this, many authors have written many books advancing their theories about what can be done. Unfortunately, few, if any, of these books step out of the box and go far enough to really address the changes that have to be made. THE NEXT EVOLUTION: A Blueprint for Transforming the Planet asks and answers, in a simple and practical way, the question: How can we start making the planet work for everyone? This book challenges the viability of our every-person-for-themselves approach to living that has been so ingrained through thousands of years of practice that most people have never even conceived of an alternative approach—especially one that would include our entire planet.
We are currently living and relating with each other and the planet in an archaic approach that is no longer viable if we want to have high quality life on the planet in the 21st century. The piecemeal way our lives are set up, the way our cities are designed, and the way our economy runs all operate such that the end result is that they isolate and separate us and impoverish our lives. They are set up for us to try to survive and get ahead on our own and to continue to intrude upon and destroy our environment. Therefore, we need to move away from this individualistic model to one that really works for and includes all of us and all life. We have to start acting like one family—where the needs of the one are the concern of everyone.
Since there are enough resources and manpower on our planet for all of us to be living abundantly and in harmony with all life, what is the problem? Changing the way we live together in Community is the basic building block that is needed to transform the planet. The Next Evolution shows how we can design Communities on a "Highest Good For Everyone" model, and how we can live very, very abundant lifestyles—on all levels, not just economic—that would appeal to almost everyone while simultaneously restoring our environment. This is a total systems approach (the systems approach tells us that all things are interconnected), and, at this point in our history, nothing less is called for and nothing less will work.
The two things needed to transform the planet are the consciousness of people living for the Highest Good and the creation of a model of what living for the Highest Good of all life would look like. While there has been a lot of work done and countless books written about the consciousness, few people have an understanding of what the form would look like because few really consider what can be done by combining the consciousness with the form. I think that this combination is what is unique about this book. Also, no one has described how we can live together in Community on a scale that is not only easily doable but would also absolutely heal and transform the planet and people's lives on all levels. The Next Evolution will be the springboard to naturally and peacefully bring about the greatest (r)Evolution in living since people first began the current way that we live and interact with each other.
The Next Evolution is the product of years of visionary work by myself and a group of people, The Community Planet Foundation, who chose to take a very different look at how we are choosing to live together on the planet.

A Question of Time
2005 Anniversary Edition
By Hans J. Zweig
This book presents counterexamples for both Special Relativity and General Relativity Theory. It supports these examples by examining the fallacies and contradictions in Einstein's arguments. it then goes on to derive a new formula for the Doppler effect for light, showing the symmetry of the effect without resorting to Special Relativity. The
consequences for cosmology, and for our vision of the universe, are discussed. The meaning of recent data for type 1A supernovae must be reinterpreted. The result is a younger, more compact universe than currently envisioned.
