 A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe
by Michael S. Schneider 

In the spiral of the nautilus shell, in the veins of a maple leaf, in the bonds of the benzene ring--everywhere he looks, Schneider sees a cosmic geometry. Of course, the lines of this geometry have long attracted the attention of probing minds, including Pythagoras, Plato, the Psalmist, Demetrius, and Plotinus. The author weaves the insights of these thinkers and many more together in a tapestry of reflections (richly illustrated) on celestial harmonies. Once initiated into the ancient mysteries, the reader will recognize profound meanings--not merely scientific utility--in squares, triangles, and other common shapes. The reader needs no extraordinary expertise in mathematics to explore these pages, just a relish for intellectual adventure. Schneider helps us discover just how much mental energy can fit within the circle of new horizons.

A New Science of Life
by Rupert Sheldrake

The implications of this theory are staggering, from predicting the course of hurricanes to explaining deja vu. Sheldrake's thinking seems radical because he does not subscribe to orthodox scientific assumptions that the universe operates like a machine; instead, he sees it as much like a living organism.



Anatomy of an Illness
by Norman Cousins

As an essay, Anatomy of an Illness is engrossing. At as a work of inspiration, it is indispensable. Anyone you know who is ill, or who simply cares about his or her state of health, will gain wisdom and hope from this carefully constructed, sober, yet passionate memoir of healing.


 

Apprentices of Wonder - Inside the Neural Network Revolution
William F. Allman


The Art of Dreaming
by Carlos Castenada

The Art of Dreaming is in my opinion the best of the Carlos Casteneda series. The sheer terror and excitement encountered reading the book is a direct strike on one's perception of the world around them. It presents new readers of the Castaneda's books with a blow that simply will force them to continue wanting to learn about the sorcerers cognitive world, and presents readers of his series of books with a science of practical application as does magical passes. The Art of Dreaming is something that all of us can explore for ourselves if we dare, and this book is a definite read if we do wish to challenge the boundaries of ordinary perception.


 

Artificial Intelligence
by F. David Peat


The Black Butterfly
by Dr. Richard Moss

For anyone who has wandered out beyond the usual borders of psychology and religion, Richard Moss's work is a pure gift, an oasis, and a place to heal. I cannot recommend his work highly enough to those on the journey of consciousness.


Brain Longevity
by Cameron Stauth

Now, those seeking to restore faded powers (listen up, baby boomers) have a trio of brand-new advisers on doing just that. Weil's Eight Weeks to Optimum Health tells how to improve general health, Klatz and Kahn's Grow Young with HGH tells how to delay and reverse the effects of aging.


 

Brainmakers - How Scientists Are Moving Beyond Computers to Create a Rival to the Human Brain
by David H. Freedman

If you think supercomputers like Hal 9000, star of 2001, are inevitable, Freedman may surprise you. For after more than 30 years of trying to create an electronic brain that matches our glob of gray matter, he discloses, scientists and engineers readily admit they are still far from any such goal. Lest you start thinking the artificial intelligence field is totally barren, Freedman shows what's presently in it--computers ranging from some that can think and do logic but not much else to others that can almost sing and dance but don't have the sense to come in out of the rain. The scientific movers and shakers have come to a dead end in trying to make computer brains that look and act like R2D2 and instead are looking at how the brain evolved. Ironically, the lowly cockroach and other bugs may provide the inspiration for actually building a brain. Some of the newest developments are downright startling, allowing Freedman to assert that the next decade or so may see "thinking" computers that may make Hal 9000 seem outmoded in the real year 2001.

Music of the Spheres - The Material Universe from Atom to Quasar, Simply Explained
by Guy Murchie

Unequalled for friendliness of tone and accessibility, a personable survey of the microscopic and macroscopic phenomena of the universe. Some of the science is slightly out of date (it was written in 1967) but if you want a thought-provoking introduction to the current views of the physical universe, this is it. I read my copy over and over, and it always gives me new insights in the way Murchie combines ideas that have not been combined before. With excellent illustrations by the author, and the author's own index, which is a deep work of art in itself.

Quantum Healing - Exploring the Frontiers of Mind Body Medicine
by Dr. Deepak Chopra

Early on in Quantum Healing, Deepak Chopra asks an interesting question: Why, when your body mends a broken arm, is it not considered a miracle, but when your body rids itself of cancer, it is? Chopra believes the two phenomena spring from the same well, that the body is capable of doing much more than we assume it can. He calls this ability to cure disease from within "quantum healing," and shows how we're all capable of it. He believes intelligence exists everywhere in our bodies, in each of our 50 trillion cells, and that therefore each cell knows how to heal itself. It's a fascinating assertion, one that remains un provable by science but overwhelmingly true by anecdote.

Turbulent Mirror
by John Briggs and F. David Peat

Until recently, such phenomena as the volatility of weather systems, the fluctuation of the shock market, or the random firing of neurons in the brain were considered too "noisy" and complex to be probed by science. But now, with the aid of high-speed computers, scientists have been able to.


The Turning Point
by Fritjof Capra

It's all here. Everything we ever needed to know to begin to change our world and ourselves. Totally brilliant. Many years in the making, this book covers a very wide spectrum of knowledge and is fascinating all the way through. Like The Tao of Physics, this book looks toward a world view that encompasses a balance of science and spirit. Capra is also not shy about deconstructing or criticizing popular economic and political mythology, which may disturb some readers, but he has the benefit of input from some of the greatest minds of our time and his analysis is unassailable. Female readers will probably appreciate his sensitivity and balanced approach to feminist perspectives as he discusses what's wrong with our world and what we can do to change things.
