Recovery of a Colony Ship

Summary

Michael and Jamie live in Dome 17. The last place safe for humans, or any life, on a dying Earth. They are adventurers who have explored other domes, but everywhere else is dead. Will Dome 17 meet the same fate? The committee has a risky plan to try out unproven technologies: a faster than light scout ship, and teleportation. Both technologies have severe limits. Only two people can be carried aboard those FTL scout ships for a one way journey. Teleportation can only work when a receiving pad is at the target location. So can they make both these technologies work to save the last of humanity? A century before, the people of Earth had built gigantic colony ships with enclosed habitats. They were filled with flora and fauna and people. These ships were launched into space knowing it would take generations to reach other solar systems. Those space pioneers would live out their lives in transition to a new world. But the colony ship program was considered a dismal failure. All of the colony ships were considered lost. Will Michael and Jamie travel to one of the colony ships? Will it be a derelict? Or will it be a chance for a new home for humanity? What will they find as they try the recovery of a colony ship?

Summary

Today more than ever, the education doled out in classrooms is cold and cognitive. But, once outside, it is our uneducated emotions that move us, hold us back, and lead us astray. It is, at first and at last, our emotions that determine our choice of profession, partner, and politics, and our relation to money, sex, and religion.  Nothing can make us feel more alive, or more human, than our emotions, or hurt us more. Yet many people lumber through life without giving full consideration to their emotions, partly because our empirical and materialistic culture does not encourage it or even make it seem possible, and partly because it requires unusual strength to gaze into the abyss of our deepest drives, needs, and fears. This book proposes to do just that, examining over 25 emotions ranging from lust to love and humility to humiliation, and drawing some powerful and astonishing conclusions along the way.

Exploring the Colony Ship: After Recovery

Summary

The Earth is a dry, dead, wasteland. The last place livable was Dome 17, but it was failing. Those people made a last ditch effort to survive. Though a bold and daring plan, they were able to reach what seems to be a derelict colony ship, The Eschaton, which is in mid-flight. (Please see book one, Recovery of a Colony Ship). The Eschaton had been designed to hold numerous and diverse immense biological habitats: flora, fauna, and everything needed to terraform a new world. It also carried thousands of people in suspended animation. The ship was designed to be tended by crews who would live out their lives in the journey between worlds. That journey would only be completed after several generations had lived and died while in transit. That was the plan. But something happened. The people from Dome 17 have reached The Eschaton, but what will they find in those habitats? What systems are still functioning? Did any of the crew survive? What lurks deep in the bowels of a colony ship? Jamie and Michael will seek to unravel these mysteries, and survive, as they explore the Colony Ship.

Summary

"Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love...." (Fyodor Dostoevsky)  Self-deception is common and universal, and the cause of most human tragedies. Of course, the science of self-deception can help us to live better and get more out of life. But it can also cast a murky light on human nature and the human condition, for example, on such exclusively human phenomena as anger, depression, fear, pity, pride, dream making, love making, and god making, not to forget age-old philosophical problems such as selfhood, virtue, happiness, and the good life. Nothing, in the end, could possibly be more important.

Growing from Depression

1 rating

Summary

Things are not all they seem. This is an audiobook about how depression can have benefits as well as costs, and how to reap those benefits. New chapters include the search for meaning, the philosophy of happiness, the psychology of gratitude, and the seven types of love. "A comprehensive, sympathetic, and thought-provoking guide for those who want to explore their depression in more depth." - The British Journal of Psychiatry "This book brings understanding and encourages independent solutions. It is remarkable in its shortness and practicality." - The British Medical Association Book Awards "Dr. Burton understands depression to be a unique experience for each person affected and offers various ways of interpreting the disorder.... Particularly interesting chapters include 'The happiness trap' which considers why happiness has not increased in the past 70 years despite increasing incomes, and ‘Depressive realism' which turns the concept of depression in many cases on its head." - SANE Mental Health Charity

Summary

I went to war, running away from myself. I came back in pieces to find out who I really was.... It took me nearly 10 years, two tours in Afghanistan, and losing a leg to come to terms with who I really am. Two years after coming back from war, I can say that I'm finally content. I'm as fit as ever, my prosthetic leg allowing me the freedom of moving and exercising as if nothing has changed. I own a small bakery in the center of Cambridge, and I have a loyal circle of friends that I can always count on. And yet.... Yet, there's something missing. A part of me craves the intimacy, the deep connection to another human being. But another - bigger - part of me is terrified of letting anyone in. My internal conflict didn't stand a chance when I met Jay. He stormed through my defense walls like a hurricane, wrapping around me with gentle force until I had no choice but to surrender. Surrendering has never felt so good. Will Jay want to stay when he sees the real me? When he sees the nightmares and insecurities clawing at my soul? My name is Amir Gopal and this is my story.
