Goswami’s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but is also the key to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics is an antidote to the moral sterility and mechanistic approach of scientific materialism and is the best and clearest approach to understanding our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. Here in 17 chapters, Dr. Goswami and his friends and colleagues discuss, among other things, how quantum physics affects our understanding of: Zen Thoughts, feelings, and intuitions Dreams Karma, death, and reincarnation God’s will, evolution, and purpose The meaning of dreams The spiritualization of economics and business, politics and education, and society itself This fascinating new book will appeal to a wide array of readers, ranging from those interested in the new physics to those captivated by the spiritual implications of the latest scientific breakthroughs.

In this major new study in the sociology of scientific knowledge, social theorist Mohammad H. Tamdgidi reports having unriddled the so-called ‘quantum enigma.’ This book opens the lid of the Schrödinger’s Cat box of the ‘quantum enigma’ after decades and finds something both odd and familiar: Not only the cat is both alive and dead, it has morphed into an elephant in the room in whose interpretation Einstein, Bohr, Bohm, and others were each both right and wrong because the enigma has acquired both localized and spread-out features whose unriddling requires both physics and sociology amid both transdisciplinary and transcultural contexts. The book offers, in a transdisciplinary and transcultural sociology of self-knowledge framework, a relativistic interpretation to advance a liberating quantum sociology. Deeper methodological grounding to further advance the sociological imagination requires investigating whether and how relativistic and quantum scientific revolutions can induce a liberating reinvention of sociology in favor of creative research and a just global society. This, however, necessarily leads us to confront an elephant in the room, the ‘quantum enigma.’ In Unriddling the Quantum Enigma, the first volume of the series commonly titled Liberating Sociology: From Newtonian toward Quantum Imaginations, sociologist Mohammad H. Tamdgidi argues that unriddling the ‘quantum enigma’ depends on whether and how we succeed in dehabituating ourselves in favor of unified relativistic and quantum visions from the historically and ideologically inherited, classical Newtonian modes of imagining reality that have subconsciously persisted in the ways we have gone about posing and interpreting (or not) the enigma itself for more than a century. Once this veil is lifted and the enigma unriddled, he argues, it becomes possible to reinterpret the relativistic and quantum ways of imagining reality (including social reality) in terms of a unified, nonreductive, creative dialectic of part and whole that fosters quantum sociological imaginations, methods, theories, and practices favoring liberating and just social outcomes. The essays in this volume develop a set of relativistic interpretive solutions to the quantum enigma. Following a survey of relevant studies, and an introduction to the transdisciplinary and transcultural sociology of self-knowledge framing the study, overviews of Newtonianism, relativity and quantum scientific revolutions, the quantum enigma, and its main interpretations to date are offered. They are followed by a study of the notion of the “wave-particle duality of light” and the various experiments associated with the quantum enigma in order to arrive at a relativistic interpretation of the enigma, one that is shown to be capable of critically cohering other offered interpretations. The book concludes with a heuristic presentation of the ontology, epistemology, and methodology of what Tamdgidi calls the creative dialectics of reality. The volume essays involve critical, comparative/integrative reflections on the relevant works of founding and contemporary scientists and scholars in the field. This study is the first in the monograph series “Tayyebeh Series in East-West Research and Translation” of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge (XIII, 2020), published by OKCIR: Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics). OKCIR is dedicated to exploring, in a simultaneously world-historical and self-reflective framework, the human search for a just global society. It aims to develop new conceptual (methodological, theoretical, historical), practical, pedagogical, inspirational and disseminative structures of knowledge whereby the individual can radically understand and determine how world-history and her/his selves constitute one another.
The philosophy of Artificial Intelligence is a work composed of six volumes published separately in the English and Romanian languages. Although they are written in an aphoristic form, each such aphorism, sometimes composed of a single sentence or other times from several, completing a true essay, which I still call aphorism due to the way of thinking about some existential themes of Mankind and implicitly of the future of Artificial Intelligence, of which I am convinced that it will merge with Mankind becoming as natural as Consciousness of Mankind itself is. I recommend this work especially to those dealing with the development of Artificial Intelligence, but also to all those interested in the future of Artificial Intelligence viewed from a philosophical perspective. Many will wonder why they appear in this collection of philosophical aphorisms referring to Artificial Intelligence and books such as Judges - Philosophical Aphorisms or Proof of the Existence of the Afterlife World - Philosophical Aphorisms? To answer this question, first of all, I want to remind the readers that in the pages of this paper they will meet with various philosophical studies regarding Artificial Intelligence from several points of view, such as the one epistemologically or ethical in addition to those referring to Artificial Intelligence and Free Will, Metaphysics or Logic, alongside which they interfere with the broad fields of Ontology and Gnoseology.
This book is the first worldwide work composed of aphorisms which treat philosophically the subject of the impact of artificial intelligence on mankind. Sorin Cerin is an important existentialist poet of the 21st century, philosopher, creator of Coaxialism, the author of the monumental work entitled: " Wisdom Collection", is considered to be one of the most representative thinkers of the aphoristic genre worldwide. Many of his aphorisms have been selected in prestigious anthologies published in various corners of the world, in the most prodigious and significant pages of quotations, or in various other publications.
In the current collection of philosophical aphorisms entitled The Future of Artificial Intelligence, I have introduced five books, each published separately in Romanian and English, before the appearance of the respective collection entitled The Future of Artificial Intelligence, which refers strictly to the theme that represents, the Future of Artificial Intelligence. In the previous collection of philosophical aphorisms entitled The Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence, I wanted to highlight all the aspects in the general way, regarding Artificial Intelligence from a philosophical perspective, including the legal and ethical ones, which is why I introduced within that collection and the book entitled, Judges. By publishing these five books together in a collection of philosophical aphorisms, I have tried to bring to light from several perspectives, this subject as thrilling as is that of the Future of Artificial Intelligence. As in the previous collection, entitled The Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence and in this collection, we can talk about the same way of narrating a certain philosophical theme under the formula of philosophical aphorism that I have often used to date. Although they are written in an aphoristic form, each such aphorism, sometimes composed of a single sentence or other times from several, completing a true essay, which I still call aphorism due to the way of thinking about some existential themes of Mankind and implicitly of the future of Artificial Intelligence, of which I am convinced that it will merge with Mankind becoming as natural as Consciousness of Mankind itself is. I recommend this work especially to those dealing with the development of Artificial Intelligence, but also to all those interested in the Future of Artificial Intelligence viewed from a philosophical perspective. First of all, I want to remind the readers that in the pages of this paper they will meet with various philosophical studies regarding Artificial Intelligence from several points of view, such as the one epistemologically or ethical in addition to those referring to Artificial Intelligence and Free Will, Metaphysics or Logic, alongside which they interfere with the broad fields of Ontology and Gnoseology. Anyway and this paper is part of my philosophical system called Coaxialism, although it is written in an aphoristic note, focused on thinking. The books I introduced in the current Collection of Philosophical Aphorisms regarding the Future of Artificial Intelligence are: -Destinul Inteligenței Artificiale- Aforisme filozofice, ISBN 9781794883185 -Destiny of Artificial Intelligence, ISBN 9781794883239 -Impactul Inteligenței Artificiale asupra Omenirii - Aforisme filozofice, ISBN 9780359939152 -The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Mankind - Philosophical Aphorisms, ISBN 9781794748200 -Credință și Sfințenie la Om și Mașină -Aforisme filozofice, ISBN 9780359926428 -Faith and Holiness at Man and Machine - Philosophical Aphorisms, ISBN 9781794837218 -Viitorul Îndepărtat al Omenirii - Aforisme filozofice, ISBN 9780359900862 -The Far Future of Mankind - Philosophical Aphorisms, ISBN 9781794709966 -Dovada Existenței Lumii de Apoi - Aforisme filozofice, ISBN 9780359878581 - Proof of the Existence of the Afterlife World - Philosophical Aphorisms, ISBN 9780359947911 All that being said I wish you a pleasant reading.

In this book, the author develops into an aphoristic and philosophical formula, a true philosophical theory about the fate of Artificial Intelligence in this world. A major work, which can be cataloged as a new way of thinking about Artificial Intelligence and its destiny.Sorin Cerin is an important existentialist poet of the 21st century, philosopher, creator of Coaxialism, the author of the monumental work entitled: " Wisdom Collection", is considered to be one of the most representative thinkers of the aphoristic genre worldwide.

Angels and Apparitions
Author: Victoria Roberts Siczak
Do angels, apparitions, strange creatures and ethereal beings really exist? We know of our world, however what do we know about the spiritual realm, outer dimensions, and astral planes? Where is heaven and hell, and what resides there? Many people see angels, demons, ghosts and spirits...but how can this be? A Paradox is a statement or proposition that seems contradictory or absurd, nonetheless...expresses the possibility of truth. Angels are messengers who convey God's will...sent to guide and protect us. An apparition is the inexplicable appearance of a ghost, a spirit, entity or a demon. Visions, premonitions, prophecies and inexplicable phenomena continue to unify mankind in the difficult effort to understand and explain what is happening in our world. A team of Paranormal Researchers, an Association for the Scientific Research of Phenomena and a group of Quantum Physicists search for answers in the region known as the Bermuda Triangle where many strange occurrences have been documented. However these unnatural events are now being reported around the world. A young Romanian girl disappears right before the eyes of her priest. Soon diverse religions are involved including the Roman Catholic diocese, the Navajo Dine' and Haitian Voodouists who implore the Loa, spirits and Saints for knowledge and guidance. A fisherman who lost his brother at sea fifteen years ago, hears his brother's voice calling to him from an aperture in the sky. Dr. Brenda Highland ...a paranormal psychologist, unknowingly opens a portal to another dimension and unleashes strange beings into our world. A Voodoo Asogwe (priest) and a Navajo Hatalli (medicine man) join forces in their knowledge of spiritualism and mysticism to gain insight as to what these unnatural occurrences mean to the Earth and all that inhabit it. Gateways open, dimensions overlap, and worlds collide. What will become of man and his very existence? What will happen if beings from these other dimensions invade our world? The message from beyond our reality is clear. Man must unify to understand. "For in the lived truth of Creation and the Mystique of the Universe and its forces...there is the unspoken terror and fear, of everything above, beneath, beyond, and within!
