When Desi, a twenty-something science graduate, can't get to sleep one night, the last thing she expected was for the TV to explode, for her to get abducted by aliens, or to get drawn into a temporal war that, somehow, is probably her fault. During her adventures we also follow the progress of two other, combatants also drawn into this war: One is Garner a half-fey, half-human wizard working for a mad machine-god, and the other is a member of a spiritually rich species of shape-shifting travellers, that call themselves the Bulmas, but that Desi knows by a host of other names. We follow our three adventurers stories as they weave their way through Time and Space, through alternate histories, into the realms of the inner-world of Faery and the outer abyss, and finally right back to the beginning, fighting a war that holds the fate of Universes in the balance. Combining Humour, Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Time-Travel, Pop-culture, and Mythology into a spell-binding roller-coaster.

The epic tale of an ancient, unsolved puzzle and how it relates to all scientific attempts to explain the basic structure of the universe At the dawn of science the ancient Greek philosopher Zeno formulated his paradox of motion, and amazingly, it is still on the cutting edge of all investigations into the fabric of reality. Zeno used logic to argue that motion is impossible, and at the heart of his maddening puzzle is the nature of space and time. Is space-time continuous or broken up like a string of beads? Over the past two millennia, many of our greatest minds—including Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and other current theoreticians—have been gripped by the mystery this puzzle represents. Joseph Mazur, acclaimed author of Euclid in the Rainforest, shows how historic breakthroughs in our understanding of motion shed light on Zeno’s paradox. The orbits of the planets were explained, the laws of motion were revealed, the theory of relativity was discovered—but the basic structure of time and space remained elusive. In the tradition of Fermat’s Enigma and Zero, The Motion Paradox is a lively history of this apparently simple puzzle whose solution—if indeed it can be solved—will reveal nothing less than the fundamental nature of reality.

The atheist, the agnostic and the devout religious alike; each and every one of us must at some point come to address these universal questions – Why are we here? How did we get here? What is the meaning of life? Why are there so many divisions in our Christian churches? Why are so many people deceived by a multitude of worldly religions? How do we witness a true Christian faith to the religions and philosophies of the world? So many questions at so great a cost for the wrong answers... This book, The Christian Doctrine Paradox, is the perfect illustration of where things went wrong, how we can make it right again, and what can ultimately be defined as Predestination – the reason for life on this planet – and much, much more.

The fascinating story of an ancient riddle and what it reveals about the nature of time and space Three millennia ago, the Greek philosopher Zeno constructed a series of logical paradoxes to prove that motion is impossible. Today, these paradoxes remain on the cutting edge of our investigations into the fabric of space and time. Zeno's Paradox uses the motion paradox as a jumping-off point for an exploration of the twenty-five-hundred-year quest to uncover the true nature of the universe. From Galileo to Einstein to Stephen Hawking, some of the greatest minds in history have tackled the problem and made spectacular breakthroughs, but through it all, the paradox of motion remains.

This volume features more than 25 papers that were presented at the 2014 Conference of the International Association for the Study of Controversies, IASC, held at the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy. It looks at conflict and conflict resolution from diverse perspectives, including philosophy, psychology, law, and history. Coverage explores the paradox of conflict and examines how discord, whether large or small, international or internal, can be both a source of chaos as well as a foundation for unity, a limitation of potential as well as an entryway to a greater depth of living. Inside, readers will discover thought-provoking answers to such questions as: What are the conditions to ensure that a conflict can be converted into cooperation? If the conflict between interests can be solved by a compromise, what happens when a conflict involves non-negotiable values​​? In the management of a conflict, what role is played by argumentation? What are the latest perspectives in conflict management? How does the theory of controversies allows us to recognize and resolve conflicts? By the end of the book, readers will have a better understanding of how conflict can be transcended and how it's possible to redefine the conflicting situation so that what seemed incompatible and locked may, in fact, open a new perspective.

'Reality is a lie' - Most people do not understand how mutable the world truly is. Most people do not realize that they hold the power to shape reality. But a few do, and they are called mages. Mages know that reality is a lie, or rather that any reality can be truth. 'The world of magic' - Collected herein are eight stories set within the World of Darkness, a world much like our own but wherein the supernatural exists and where dark forces beyond the sight or comprehension of mankind, here at work. These stories have been selected and edited by Stewart Wieck, creator of 'Mage - The Ascension' and co-creator of the 'Wrold of Darkness'.
