Did you know that those born on November 1 common years are not only people for whom results of processes (rather than processes themselves) are important, but also that (especially in their youth) they don’t listen to anyone & therefore are capable of such extreme things that other people’s hair stand up? For ex., they can become punks with green hair, pierce all body parts, and eat almost trash?

(5.00 from 2 reviews)
This poetry is about life, about our thoughts and feelings as one goes through life learning and understanding our relationship with each other. It also relates to our natural affinity with nature, and how it touches a deeper consciousness, making us aware that deep within we have the ability to live as one with nature, and so direct our lives with love, care and understanding for each other.
El libro prohibido para mujeres “alfa”.
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 6,370. Language: Spanish. Published: January 15, 2017. Categories: Essay » Sociology, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Social
Había escuchado hablar mal de las argentinas, pero lo que realmente me asusta es que las mujeres “alfa” parecen no darse cuenta de que han sido manipuladas. En ciertos momentos, parece que quieren reaccionar, pero vuelven a adormecerse. Pilar Sordo (2005), se dio cuenta de manera de que una o varias generaciones de mujeres jóvenes estaban tratando de ser lo más parecidas posibles a los hombres.
Putting Away Childish Things: A New Synthesis
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 103,220. Language: English. Published: December 10, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Social, Nonfiction » History » Civilization
We compare the intellectual growth of mankind to the maturation of an individual and suggest that mankind is nearing the end of its adolescence. Without a paradigm shift mankind like an unsophisticated child is doomed to continue repeating fatal errors. Religion and science are part of our intellectual growth one being the original thesis, the other the antithesis. Synthesis requires a sorting.
