The Physics of Life explores the roots of the big question by examining the deepest urges and properties of living things, both animate and inanimate: how to live longer, with food, warmth, power, movement and free access to other people and surroundings. Bejan explores controversial and relevant issues such as sustainability, water and food supply, fuel, and economy, to critique the state in which the world understands positions of power and freedom. Breaking down concepts such as desire and power, sports health and culture, the state of economy, water and energy, politics and distribution, Bejan uses the language of physics to explain how each system works in order to clarify the meaning of evolution in its broadest scientific sense, moving the reader towards a better understanding of the world's systems and the natural evolution of cultural and political development. The Physics of Life argues that the evolution phenomenon is much broader and older than the evolutionary designs that constitute the biosphere, empowering readers with a new view of the globe and the future, revealing that the urge to have better ideas has the same physical effect as the urge to have better laws and better government. This is evolution explained loudly but also elegantly, forging a path that flows sustainability.

What kind of sense can we make out of living in a world that has both sex and quantum physics? Because, in fact, there is no question that we live in a world that has both. Both the messiness of daily life with all its desires, emotions, thoughts and uncertainties, and also the elegant mathematical models of strange attractors, quantum foam, and multiple dimensions. Sex and Quantum Physics Volume 1: Tantic Yogi Tells All is a story about almost everything. Romp with a tantric yogi's whimsical cartoons throughthe body, mind, and sexual circuits of humans. Explore dark energy, evolution, pain, pleasure and why it feels so good to evolve with the universe. Tantric Yogi Tells All is an old/new paradigm, an old/new way of thinking about our selves and how we live in the world. Simply written, with 24 exercises and over 300 illustrations, Volume 1 is a practical course on beginners tantra yoga exercises, exercises that not only immediately reduce stress and pain, but improve muscle tone while evolving our energy and our awareness. Drawing together ancient traditions, yoga body awareness, and the latest discoveries of science, Sex and Quantum Physics Volume 1 offers tools for a richer evolution of everything in your life (yes, even sex!).

Galileo Unbound traces the journey that brought us from Galileo's law of free fall to today's geneticists measuring evolutionary drift, entangled quantum particles moving among many worlds, and our lives as trajectories traversing a health space with thousands of dimensions. Remarkably, common themes persist that predict the evolution of species as readily as the orbits of planets or the collapse of stars into black holes. This book tells the history of spaces of expanding dimension and increasing abstraction and how they continue today to give new insight into the physics of complex systems. Galileo published the first modern law of motion, the Law of Fall, that was ideal and simple, laying the foundation upon which Newton built the first theory of dynamics. Early in the twentieth century, geometry became the cause of motion rather than the result when Einstein envisioned the fabric of space-time warped by mass and energy, forcing light rays to bend past the Sun. Possibly more radical was Feynman's dilemma of quantum particles taking all paths at once — setting the stage for the modern fields of quantum field theory and quantum computing. Yet as concepts of motion have evolved, one thing has remained constant, the need to track ever more complex changes and to capture their essence, to find patterns in the chaos as we try to predict and control our world.

The purpose of the book is to give a survey of the physics that is relevant for biological applications, and also to discuss what kind of biology needs physics. The book gives a broad account of basic physics, relevant for the applications and various applications from properties of proteins to processes in the cell to wider themes such as the brain, the origin of life and evolution. It also considers general questions of common interest such as reductionism, determinism and randomness, where the physics view often is misunderstood. The subtle balance between order and disorder is a repeated theme appearing in many contexts. There are descriptive parts which shall be sufficient for the comprehension of general ideas, and more detailed, formalistic parts for those who want to go deeper, and see the ideas expressed in terms of mathematical formulas. - Describes how physics is needed for understanding basic principles of biology - Discusses the delicate balance between order and disorder in living systems - Explores how physics play a role high biological functions, such as learning and thinking

In this groundbreaking book, Adrian Bejan takes the recurring patterns in nature—trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts—and reveals how a single principle of physics, the Constructal Law, accounts for the evolution of these and all other designs in our world. Everything—from biological life to inanimate systems—generates shape and structure and evolves in a sequence of ever-improving designs in order to facilitate flow. River basins, cardiovascular systems, and bolts of lightning are very efficient flow systems to move a current—of water, blood, or electricity. Likewise, the more complex architecture of animals evolve to cover greater distance per unit of useful energy, or increase their flow across the land. Such designs also appear in human organizations, like the hierarchical "flowcharts" or reporting structures in corporations and political bodies. All are governed by the same principle, known as the Constructal Law, and configure and reconfigure themselves over time to flow more efficiently. Written in an easy style that achieves clarity without sacrificing complexity, Design in Nature is a paradigm-shifting book that will fundamentally transform our understanding of the world around us.

God is the sum of all his particles.God's particles are the basis of Realia. It's not just Science Fictionany more. The God Particle as it is called, or the Higg's boson, is discovered in 2012 in what is the most ambitious and most expensive scientific experiment in history. The next breakthrough comes in 2042, when Quantum Physicists, using the Large Mass Collider, the advancedversion of today's Large Hadron Collider run by CERN in France andSwitzerland, to disintegrate a human being and accelerate his atoms tothe speed of light. Using the new technology volunteers are able to catch up to and commune with the next God Particles that come along. What happens next is the most exciting reorganization of past, present and future events that will dazzle the senses, all basedon the most widely accepted principles of the current model of physics. The American and Chinese governments get involved as a nationalsecurity precaution due to their concern that the 'God Particles', known to be the most important and fundamental force in the universe, could be used as a kind of "God Bomb". Simultaneously, Kundun Gyaltso, a ten-year-old Tibetan monk, pursues the truth about God'sparticles through an amazing new REAL-D mandala presentationsoftware he has created and that is eventually downloaded by nearly every computerputer computer and communications device on the planet. The experience literally blows themind of any audience he entertains until he finally performs the mostimportant REAL-D mandala presentation in history at the WhiteHouse that will change the world for all time going forward. 'Realia' is the term that will be used for what lies underneath everything else and powers what we think of as "Reality". The subtitle: E Pluribus Unum, Latin for - "From the many, One" isindicative of the the way in which these God Particles work in concert to produce the reality that we encounter with our six senses every day. Realia is a region of space that has never been exploreduntil now. The events in this sci-fi thriller are the precursor of things to come in the not-too-distant future and have never been brought to life before in any medium. The ending to our story will shock and then, upon reflection, satisfy even the most discerning science fiction fan. Hold on to your laser swords because the real battle to save the galaxy lies inthe human mind, not in our armies. In this story, everybody wins, no one loses, and yet civilization - as we know it today - is over. However, the way that everyone wins is through a complete remake of the human psyche and a complete re-write of human history forthe last two thousand years. Only the power of the God Particles, present everywhere in our world at all times, can accomplish such a feat. What is the role of these amazing 'God Particles in your life? To know the answer, you must take a Realia-check. For more information about the author visit - www.TheGodParticleBook.com Realia: E Pluribus Unum is Part One in an ongoing Science FictionTrilogy.

Oxford presents, in one convenient and coherently organized volume, 20 influential but until now relatively inaccessible articles that form the backbone of Boyd and Richerson's path-breaking work on evolution and culture. Their interdisciplinary research is based on two notions. First, that culture is crucial for understanding human behavior; unlike other organisms, socially transmitted beliefs, attitudes, and values heavily influence our behavior. Secondly, culture is part of biology: the capacity to acquire and transmit culture is a derived component of human psychology, and the contents of culture are deeply intertwined with our biology. Culture then is a pool of information, stored in the brains of the population that gets transmitted from one brain to another by social learning processes. Therefore, culture can account for both our outstanding ecological success as well as the maladaptations that characterize much of human behavior. The interest in this collection will span anthropology, psychology, economics, philosophy, and political science.
