In every single waking moment we make simple choices that empower either a higher or lower reality for our lives. Much of the associated thinking taking place without our knowing.

At its core Mammon essentially is a critique of The Secret. That is despite its much broader context. Why then read a book about what many, including Deepak Chopra, refer to as ridiculous? And so many years after it was first published? The primary reason is that Mammon expounds a philosophy for thriving in a climate of adversity. This is particularly relevant given the global economic crisis.

Mammon is primarily a critique of prosperity theology. In particular it focuses on “The Secret” and how its proliferation is indicative of an underlying culture of greed which had in large part been responsible for the 2008 economic collapse.

By
Price: Free! Words: 41,780. Language: English. Published: July 11, 2012. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / existentialism
This installment argues that "The Secret" is emblematic of the greater social milieu we are finding ourselves in at this time. For this reason I isolated it as a particularly good example of how similar frauds are conveyed. It shows how easily we may unknowingly give away our power to quacks and con-men. That's if we fail to think critically, instead to abandon our sanity to reckless delusion.

UNDERSTANDING EXISTENCE addresses issues such as why we exist? It is particularly for those who struggle to integrate the known facts of the sub-atomic world with the world we see around us, but without making simplistic newage inferences. It investigates the strange way life really works and how we already live interchangeably in physical reality, and a mysterious world that is unbounded.

By
Price: Free! Words: 29,620. Language: English. Published: July 5, 2012. Category: Nonfiction » Social Science » Social psychology
Evil is the ultimate example of how actively clinging to old outdated paradigms of can and does have severe repercussions for humanity. This book suggests that evil is real and that evil people and evil institutions do exist. And often, as had been the case in South Africa, extreme evil is committed in the name of religion with the perpetrators cloaking their despicable behaviour in its name.
