This memoir is the fascinating and revealing story of Graeme Jefferies—one of the most inventive and influential musicians to emerge from New Zealand's vibrant independent music scene in the 1980s. Time Flowing Backwards spans over three decades of Jefferies career spent with bands Nocturnal Projections, This Kind of Punishment, and The Cakekitchen as well as a solo artist. In a candid and in-depth style, Jefferies recounts his recording and songwriting process along with riveting tales from incident-filled tours with the likes of Pavement, Cat Power and the Mountain Goats. This truly original and inimitable inside story highlights intense collaboration and DIY innovation, records made in hallways and houses rather than plush studios and a dedication to produce challenging and remarkable songs.

This open access book chronicles the rise of a new scientific paradigm offering novel insights into the age-old enigmas of existence. Over 300 years ago, the human mind discovered the machine code of reality: mathematics. By utilizing abstract thought systems, humans began to decode the workings of the cosmos. From this understanding, the current scientific paradigm emerged, ultimately discovering the gift of technology. Today, however, our island of knowledge is surrounded by ever longer shores of ignorance. Science appears to have hit a dead end when confronted with the nature of reality and consciousness. In this fascinating and accessible volume, James Glattfelder explores a radical paradigm shift uncovering the ontology of reality. It is found to be information-theoretic and participatory, yielding a computational and programmable universe.

With our lives firmly controlled by the steady pace of time, humans have yearned for ways to escape its constraints, and authors have responded with narratives about traveling far into the past or future, reversing the flow of time, or creating alternate universes. This book considers how imaginative works involving time travel reflect ongoing scientific concerns and examine the human condition. The scope of the volume is unusually wide, covering such topics as Dante, the major novels of the 19th century, and stories and films of the 1990s. The book concludes with a lengthy bibliography of short stories and novels, films and television programs, and nonfiction works that feature time travel or speculations about time.

With a baby boomer turning sixty every ten seconds, we are rapidly becoming an aging society. But cutting edge research on the connection between age and disease shows us that many of the preconceptions we had about how to grow old need a second look. This groundbreaking book is full of take-away prescriptive advice which the nearly seventy-five million boomers in this nation will value. Top gerontologist and Stanford medical school professor Dr. Walter Bortz and co-author Randall Stickrod draw on new science and a thirty-year longitudinal study of centenarians to show that: • Genetics plays a smaller role in aging than previously thought • Senility, dementia, and other diseases of the elderly, are largely preventable and not an inevitable consequence of aging • Engagement, through sexual relationships, social interaction, and professional activity, is a key factor in long, healthy lives • Physical fitness can recover at least 30 years of aging Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, The Roadmap to 100 gives you the power to control your own destiny and live well beyond 100.

TIME CURRENTS Surfing the waves of paradox Time travel needn't be a stretch. We're all time travelers. In our waking world, we seem to "travel" or ride on a shared vector -- the time axis -- moving into the future at a fixed rate with all our companions. Have we left an inalterable past behind us? Know that as Spaceship Earth courses through the ocean of spacetime, it leaves a traceable, luminous trail in its wake. Therein lies the first secret of the physics of time travel. When the body sleeps, we awaken to ourselves and to our true power under the sway of a wiser and nobler part of us -- an unsleeping creative being within -- whose hand is on a time rheostat of unlimited range in which a second can be an hour and a minute a year, utterly real on our own timeline. For the physicist, this creative imaging faculty, operating in massless diachronic space, possesses electrical reality, and consists in the excitation of an internal spatiotemporal field, volitionally controlled and executed, and fully consonant with natural law. Therein lies the second secret. At Area 51, they could not have known the magnitude and the scale of the forces that they were about to unleash. Luckily, the Nommo, their extraterrestrial guest, knew more. Therein lies the tale. The author doesn't fl aunt his erudition, which is legendary, but you quickly discover it on your own as your mind grows and expands in the minds of the characters at Area 51. Prof. deJavanne has a rare gift for making complex and subtle ideas easy to understand – and fun. Dr. Robert A. Rose, Rewiring your Brain Time Currents is distinguishable from your everyday space opera by the sheer magnitude of what is at stake, the depth of the characters, rock solid science, and the villains you will love to hate. It is an engaging story with a surprise ending. Hugh J. Thompson, Creative Linguistics Time Currents is a tale of two epochs, a century apart, bridged by an authentic genius, a gorgeous, sensual Russian beauty, a brilliant inventor and an alien. It is both entertaining and thought provoking. But beware: if you follow the science and the logic too closely you may start believing it. That just won't do! After all, it is fi ction. Isn't it?

A breathtaking parable of death and deception from the Booker-shortlisted Galgut, 'the bold, fresh voice of South African fiction' (Observer). On a lonely stretch of road a nameless man commits a murder. The victim is a religious minister on his way to take up a post in a nearby town. The murderer decides to steal the dead man's identity only to discover that one of his first duties as the new minister is to bury a body that has just been found out near the quarry... Captain Mong, the head of the local police takes a close interest in the minister's work, although there is evidence linking young petty criminals to the crime. Mong knows it is the new minister who is guilty. But he bides his time, watching, listening, slowly circling his prey. Building to a climax that is almost too much to bear with the town's church ablaze, the Captain is compelled to pursue the murderer across the veldt, while his exhausted quarry struggles to make good his escape. In The Quarry, Galgut's tender prose combines with the power of myth to create a devastating drama, alive with tension.

Parallel worlds… time-travel… life-after-death. The Effect cuts through the whole caboodle with a razor-sharp edge, ripping up distinctions between science and the spiritual with page-turning clarity. If you thought mysticism was only for the devout or gullible, or found physics unfathomable, buckle up your seat belt and hold tight. Linda Hoy’s journey careers through quantum mechanics, high-energy physics and ancient wisdom with turbo-charged vigour. Can we predict the future? What happens when we die? Does life have a purpose? Does God exist? The Effect uses twenty-first-century science to validate what mystics and spiritual leaders have been telling us for centuries. It introduces us to groundmuts and dimension-hopping goldfish. It examines the increasingly-common phenomenon of near death experience. It turns what we think of as reality on its head. It makes us cry and laugh out loud. Prepare to be amazed. Best-selling children’s author, Linda Hoy cuts to the quick with her Quaker honesty and Yorkshire humour. With a penchant for live rock and alternative country music, Linda lives in Sheffield.

Despite the strictures of the extreme Behaviourists, psychologists have been taking an increasing interest in the development of theories concerning the 'mechanisms' internal to humans and animals which permit perceptual, memory, and problem solving behaviour. One consideration which has enormously stimulated an interest in theories of internal cognitive represen tation has been progress in the theory and the technology of computing machines, which has opened the promising prospect of computer simulation of human and animal psychological functions. What has developed is the possibility of constructing models of human psychology, realizing them in computer hardware, and testing the resultant machine performance against that of the human subject. A second consideration which helps motivate the construction of models of internal representation is the considerable advances in experimental and theoretical knowledge of the human brain understood from the neuro-anatomical view. The likely profit of adopting a narrowly Behaviourist methodology shrinks in the face of our growing, fine-grained knowledge of cerebral 'wetware'. The purpose of this volume is selectively to exhibit some of the proposals concerning theories of internal representation which have been put forward in recent years. The area of central concern is the resurgence of interest in the role of imagery in cognition which has taken place in the last fifteen years.

Francis Foley is a proud, stubborn man, and cannot stand to be beholden to anyone. Quick to anger and slow to forgiveness, it is his temper that, one day, costs his sons their home - and their mother. This will not be the last of their losses however: as the four boys and their father embark on an odyssey to find untenanted land they can call their own, their already diminished family is divided further. But if a combination of choice and chance cause the five to separate and scatter, each to their own road, then a series of casual encounters and coincidences offer some hope for reunion and - in Francis's case - redemption. Set in Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century, The Fall of Light traces the footsteps of the five Foley men. With elegant, elegiac prose, Niall Williams guides his characters through hazard and hardship, friendship, love and death, across the world . . . and home again.
