Gravionics And A Spiritual Life

Gravionics is the study of the individual connections of gravity that bind all mass together and through which all energy transfers are made in the real world. For years, scientists have thought that gravity was just a big sheet of something that acted on mass. Now we know that gravity is made of individual connections, called gravions, and that these connections arise from the mass. As different physical systems move through an infinite cosmos, they come into contact with each other, making and breaking gravionic connections. Human beings have very complex gravitational interactions and the study of these interactions can help mankind in its quest to better understand science and to obtain a spiritual life. Spirituality is defined as the actions between sentient beings where all energy transfers are positive and loving. Love is defined as the actions of sentient beings whereby they give more energy than they take and where they make more connections of gravity than they break, recognizing that all real events are first and foremost gravitational events. By learning a simple set of rules, human beings can become spiritual in a way that is measurable by science and good for our planet and the individuals that live here. Human beings must become more aware of our position in the cosmos. We must rise to a gravionic awareness of our universe. This means that we must develop our communal energies and work together as a species to save ourselves and our delicate planet. We must apply gravionics to all of science and begin teaching its spiritual aspects to children when they first enter their formal schooling. If gravionics were learned by all, humanity could save our precious planet and take our place as citizens of the cosmos.

Named NOW Magazine’s Best Emerging Local Author Where We Have to Go is a luminous and sassy first novel about the last days of childhood in a family coming apart at the seams. At once wryly humorous and deeply affecting, this sparkling novel follows the irresistible Lucy Bloom as she searches for her place in the world. When we first meet Lucy, she’s an imaginative eleven-year-old dreaming of a taste of freedom — and only beginning to grasp that all is not well between her parents. In the years that follow, Lucy’s journey to adulthood will see her question the limits of unconditional love, grow “criminally thin” as she stops eating, and discover complicated truths about what it means to be a young woman. Through it all, the central figure in Lucy’s life remains her mother, Joy, whose larger-than-life stories and boisterous voice belie a deep disappointment. As their relationship is tested again and again, Lucy comes to understand the resilience of the bonds that tie us to the ones we love. Among the characters we meet are Lucy’ s father, Frank, a failed glamour photographer turned travel agent who’s never been out of the country; her best friend, Erin, an artist whose outspoken iconoclasm will inspire and challenge Lucy; and Crashing Wave, Frank’s lover, a former exotic dancer and the woman Lucy comes to imagine as the ideal of all that is feminine. Set in Toronto throughout the 1990s, Where We Have to Go is a novel of self-discovery, family, and love. It introduces Lauren Kirshner as one of our most striking new voices, and reminds us that sometimes the most difficult journey is the one that takes us home. From the Trade Paperback edition.
