Author: Dr. Shereese V. Battle

Pages: 216
Genre: Self-Help
Format: Ebook
Purchase at AMAZON

Are You Ready For Change?
Read. Reminisce. Receive. Restore.
Ever dated someone and felt the need to take drastic measures to preserve your feelings? 

 Yeah, me too!  You want to give more of you, show more of yourself, and open up a little more.  But, you're afraid!  You’re afraid that something so sweet could become so bitter.  So you caution yourself…  See, the beauty in Robot Love is it doesn't have to end!  So, take your time and be mindful of your emotions.  But, keep in mind that, it's OK for one Robot to love, and miss another.

Have you ever received a call from someone and felt the need to go into IMMEDIATE Prayer?

You think, "Lord, should I answer this call?"  Sometimes, you have to push the call-end button.  Quite frankly, I find myself doing it more often.  It’s not because I don’t want to be of service, but it’s hard to help someone who becomes rebellious against assistance.  So, help if you can.  But, know that it’s OK to let him/her go so you can grow.

Remember when you were a kid and had imaginary talks with yourself about growing up?

Yeah me too!  I can still hear my mother saying, “You better stay a child as long as you can.”  Momma told me there would be days when I wish I were still a kid.  And you know what?  “She ain’t ever lied!”  Despite my age, I still need her help.  I never anticipated facing so many challenges as an adult.  From me to you…Just be careful with what you wish.

The Last Places on Earth by Gary Mancuso Book Feature

TLPoE CoverTitle: The Last Places on Earth
Author: Gary Mancuso
Publisher: Great Lands Publishing
Pages: 375
Genre: Travelogue/Essays
Format: Hardcopy/Ebook

 Gary Mancuso has seen how fast the world’s biological and cultural diversity is being obliterated by rapid globalization. In 2005, He saw the earth reaching a major turning point, when the last remnants of primal humanity and nature would soon be gone. So, in a life-changing gamble, he set off on a six-year journey to see the earth’s remaining wildernesses. This intensely personal account of Gary’s journey includes feasting with New Guinea’s former cannibals, hunting with Pygmies in the Congo Basin, and attending a Madagascan highland death ritual with an exhumed corpse as the guest of honor. Gary paid a price for his journey: lost his wife to divorce, half his net worth to financial malfeasance, and a dear friend to suicide. He fell sick several times, got electrocuted, and struggled with the inevitable disorientation borne of long rootlessness. But he overcame each hurdle and even found romance in some unlikely places. By dumb luck, some smart luck, and an instinct for improvisation, he pressed on and somehow staggered home. The Last Places on Earth: Journeys in Our Disappearing World is a timely and powerful reminder that the wonderment and mystery that we humans naively assumed would always be there is dying fast.

For More Information

  Gary Mancuso yearned to travel ever since he was a boy. Then, the summer before his senior year in high school, he left his family home in Ohio and drove to California. Arriving in Los Angeles with four dollars in his pocket, he slept on the beach for a spell until he got his footing. When he wasn’t off wandering somewhere, he studied economics, communications, and political science and got a master’s degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California. Before setting off on the journey that became the subject of this book, Gary headed business development in the trading room of a large regional bank. Along with his passion for travel, he is an avid trekker, swimmer, scuba diver, environmentalist, and private pilot.

Conscious Experience by W.H. Sparks Book Blitz - Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!

496303_Personalized-Banner-Ad_L3

Conscious ExperienceTitle: Conscious Experience
Author: W.H. Sparks
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 164
Genre: Philosophy
Format: Ebook
Purchase at AMAZON

The fundamental principles that explain the heretofore mysterious phenomena of consciousness are:

 (1) Consciousness is energies of the environment, and energies developed in intrafusal muscle spindles are conscious experience, and

(2) the experience occurring as the developed energies, depending on purpose and intensity, are detected by muscle receptors. The conscious experience occurs as perception (the experience of the environment), imagery (imagination, memory, and dreams), feelings (emotion), or, when agreed to, the meanings of language. Consciousness and conscious experience are not subject to the interpretations of scientific and religious knowledge because consciousness is the individual experience of each and every person.

In Conscious Experience, author W.H. Sparks presents a discussion of the relationship of consciousness and experience based on his extensive research and his personal experiences. Along with a review of the development of the theory of consciousness, Sparks offers a plethora of facts and thoughts about conscious experience, including:
 • An explanation of the nature and experience of consciousness
• How the experience of energies detected by receptors constitutes conscious experience
• The idea that conscious experience is detected as the energies developed in the intrafusal spindles by muscle receptors
• How consciousness is experienced by the muscle system
• The structures of experience are the intrafusal muscle spindles
• The impulse activity transduced from the detected energies innervates the muscle system
• The recognition of the part the muscle receptors play in conscious experience is the process that finally answers the question of consciousness and conscious experience

 In the Conscious Experience, Sparks provides information that shows conscious experience includes perception, imagery, feelings, and the meanings of language—all qualities unique to each individual.
  amazon  
W.H. Sparks graduated from the University of Colorado. His primary field of study was philosophy. After graduation, Sparks continued his interest in studies of consciousness. Sparks is the author of Language and Conscious Experience and The Nature of Experience. He and his wife live in Southern California.
