The Living Force
Thank you so much all for this wonderful session with a lot of food for thoughts...
Laura said:Psalehesost said:There are of course various textbooks focused on the mathematics, which can be expected to do widely varying jobs of actually explaining the concepts. What have you been reading that made the concepts clear?
Alister Hardy's "The Living Stream". Bryant Shiller's "The 5th Option". A couple books on Ark's shelves about Information Theory, articles on the net, and of course, just simply assembling pieces from the Cs sessions, history, and the philosophy of the Stoics and Gurdjieff.
Added: Book titles: Information and the Nature of Reality: From Physics to Metaphysics and the recent work on philosophy by Thomas Nagel: "Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False"

[..]Also interesting about the mystery respiratory illnesses in Alabama and Texas. I did not connect it earlier, but now remember how many people I know have been sick with a variety of things - that were either diagnosed as strep or sinus infections or something else. Also that many people have reported feeling exceptionally fatigued the past month or so, and that we have been attributing that to the iron overload issue and/or an exceptionally wicked allergy season. Wonder if it is really more connected to these secret germ experiments and also the excess dust in the atmosphere.[..]

A: You have long been aware of the cataclysmic nature of cosmic transitions, why get nervous now that it is at the door?
Q: (Perceval) Stage fright! (L) Yes, stage fright. Okay, going along our list of questions...
Psalehesost said:In the recommended books thread, someone asked if there were any recommended books on information theory. I second that.
