Figments of My Reality is an anthology of poetry written by Elias Tobias from high school to the present, which explores the facets of reality from the common themes of life. These poems are really little stories of characters, observed or experienced by the author, without the introductions and conclusions. These are snapshots of their thoughts, leaving the settings and character details up to the reader. The poems focus of the feelings of the moment, and possible reasons of decisions or reactions of these feelings. These collective actions create who we are, and why we do what we do.

"All the Broken Pieces kept me guessing and frantically flipping the pages. It's a unique story with layered characters I couldn't help but fall in love with." -Nyrae Dawn, author of Charade What if your life wasn't your own? Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, her two minds get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember. Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?

On An Ungrounded Earth

For too long, the Earth has been used to ground thought instead of bending it; such grounding leaves the planet as nothing but a stage for phenomenology, deconstruction, and other forms of anthropocentric philosophy. In far too much continental philosophy, the Earth is a cold dead place enlivened only by human thought-either as a thing to be exploited, or as an object of nostalgia. Geophilosophy seeks instead to question the ground of thinking itself, the relation of the inorganic to the capacities and limits of thought. This book constructs an eclectic variant of geophilosophy through engagements with digging machines, cyclones and volcanoes, secret vessels, nuclear waste, giant worms, decay, hell, demon souls, subterranean cities, black suns, and xenoarcheaology, via continental theory (Nietzsche, Schelling, Deleuze, et alia) and various cultural objects such as horror films, videogames, and weird Lovecraftian fictions, with special attention to Speculative Realism and the work of Reza Negarestani. In a time where the earth as a whole is threatened by ecological collapse, On an Ungrounded Earth generates a perversely realist account of the earth as a dynamic engine materially invading and upsetting our attempts to reduce it to the ground beneath our feet.

Letters To My Ex

Our future in part is made up of fragments of our past. If we learn from our past and understand it then primarily we can escape repeating it. This happens to be true in love also; our current relationship is made up of fragments of our past physical and emotional involvements. Whether those involvements contained painful or pleasant memories, doesn't really matter. The difference is how we ourselves deal with the aftermath of those experiences. Whether we allow any individual to possess so much control over our life as to let their actions dictate how we love after them. Love is not an exact science, and if love were fair we would all fall in love with our best friend and live happily ever after. Sometimes we choose to offer our hearts to the wrong individuals. By the same token there has been some point in our lives where someone gave us their heart also, and we returned it in a much more damaged condition than when we accepted it. Letters to my ex is dedicated to the fragments of my past. Those women that have made me more sensitive, understanding, compassionate, patient, loving, supportive, and passionate. As well as those that possessed none of those qualities and allowed me to experience what some of my thoughtless actions felt like first hand.

Religion As Art Form

If you find books such as Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion compelling but your faith heritage is also important to you, this book shows how you can affirm both. Taking a cue from Marcus Borg's contention that "scriptural literalism" is for many people a major impediment to authentic spirituality, Carl Jech describes how all religion can and should be much more explicit about its symbolic, metaphorical, and artistic nature. With a particular focus on mortality and the relationship of humans to eternity, the book affirms a postmodern understanding of "God" as ultimate eternal Mystery and of spirituality as an artistic, (w)holistic, visionary, and creative process of becoming at home in the universe as it really is with all its joys and sorrows. Religion as Art Form is a must-read for those who think of themselves as spiritual but not religious.
