Contra Mundum
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 217,390. Language: English. Published: May 2, 2016 by Mike Hockney. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / Rationalism
Contra Mundum is a handbook for those who think there's something fundamentally wrong with the world. The ancient Gnostics claimed the world was actually created and ruled by the Devil (the Demiurge), hence why everything is so hideous, unfair and horrific. Humanity refuses to be cured. It loves madness too much. No sane person would be anything other than "contra mundum" (against the world).
Science's War On Reason
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 104,920. Language: English. Published: May 1, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / Rationalism
Scientists are anti-rationalists and anti-intellectuals, antagonistic to reason, antagonistic to the inevitable destination where reason leads us: zero/infinity singularities. These are the Leibnizian monads that define existence itself, but which will never be objects of sensory science. No Super Large Hadron Collider will ever detect a single trace of them.
The Holographic Soul
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 105,050. Language: English. Published: May 1, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Mind & Body
A mathematical universe is a holographic universe, a monadic universe, a Leibnizian rather than Newtonian universe. We are all living in a dynamic, evolving hologram, aiming to transform itself into heaven, populated by not one but countless Gods. The universe is a God factory. Its exact purpose is to turn imperfect souls into perfect Gods. What could be better than that?
The War of the Ghosts and Machines
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 133,500. Language: English. Published: May 1, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Mind & Body
Are you a ghost or a machine? You don’t need to be a superstitious believer to support the side of the ghosts. “Ghosts” aren’t ridiculous Mythos things of religious superstition.

Free Will and Will to Power
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 109,010. Language: English. Published: May 1, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Free will & determinism
Are you free, or are you a machine that suffers from a delusion that it’s free? Free will is perhaps the most important subject of all because if we are authentically free, scientific materialism is ipso facto false, and the world is in urgent need of a revolutionary paradigm shift. This book shows that free will has a most unexpected advocate – mathematics.

Did the ancient Greeks invent philosophy, and the concept of Being? That has been the conventional wisdom for many years. In fact philosophy is very old, and its presence can be traced in other cultures in the Ancient Near East, at least as far back as the middle of the 2nd Millennium B.C.E. Thomas Yaeger explores the ancient cultural significance and context of philosophy before the Greeks.
