The Double Triangle shows how each of us is a gateway between a vast past and an expansive future. It represents a secular outlook in which original thought is the most sacred act. The underpinning of these ideas are: the unknowablity of ultimate truth, randomness as a builder of structure and a driver of change, and the implications of the Double Triangle for our ideas and for our afterlives.

Price: $2.00 USD. Words: 40,330. Language: Russian. Published: August 13, 2013 by T/O "Neformat". Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
Книга «Числа Материя Вселенная» была издана в 1993 году, но весьма некачественно. Она не поступила в продажу. Автор её уничтожил! Основные выводы той книги были перенесены в этот - сжатый, краткий вариант книги, которая, я, надеюсь, будет опубликована в ближайшее время. Уж слишком много интересного содержится в книге, и терять странные, но привлекательные гипотезы непозволительно. Зачем мы тогда ж

An essay on human perception. The heart of the matter is how man's point of view (geometric and geometric analogy) influences his perception of the truth. Physical perception, promises, subtleties of acting, the question of otherness, and the metaphysical foundation of our existence are covered. The cover image is deliberately childish.

This is my third volume of short essays to make you think. I look for patterns and generalisations; keep things simple - not to offer truths, but to highlight where complication and specialisation might get things wrong.
