Price: $1.00 USD. Words: 2,280. Language: French. Published: September 25, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Physics, Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Mathematics
Une explication de la raison pour laquelle E = (1/2) mv2 (v au carré) a une accélération et une quantité de mouvement varient géométriquement par le carré. Doubler la vélocité augmente l'énergie cinétique pour la même masse de 4 (2 au carré), et non 2. Nous utilisons l'impetus (ou l'impulsion) dans l'explication, rejetant la première loi du mouvement de Newton tel que défini.

Boris Hennig, at Humbolt University in Berlin, writes about Descartes' view of substance. Descartes emphasizes distinctness and realness. Descartes applies the concept to God. These comments follow Hennig's argument in order to show how Descartes alters the word-scape of medieval scholasticism and sets the stage for empirio-schematic judgment.

Diary of Atonement: The case for good and evil
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 22,600. Language: English. Published: January 25, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
This is a work on identity that challenges the mind to think for itself. To say of an identity that “it is itself” says not that an identity is a oneness (so tradition) but that it is two-faced–a paradox. I invite you to find the book provocative, inviting your criticism, as a mind-challenging exercise in thinking for yourself. And why not?

Extrait : Blaise Pascal naquit à Clermont-Ferrand le 19 juin 1623. Il appartenait à une vieille famille d’Auvergne, dont un ancêtre, Étienne Pascal, maître des requêtes, avait été anobli par le roi Louis XI. Si ancienne qu’elle fût, cette noblesse de robe demeurait plus proche de la bourgeoisie que de la noblesse d’épée...

Point out flaws in Scientific Method. Suggest data set should be forced for best results. By forced, we mean deliberately pick the set by exclusion that supports your hypotheses. If your most opportune set does not support the hypothesis, that is most likely conclusive. Your thesis is wrong. Use a bullseye ring of more to less demonstrable results to expand knowledge base for the pill, test, etc.
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?
