Meet Sirius Pen

Sirius Pen is just your average boring person, went to college, got a degree, got bored and studied a course on a different field, got a certificate, got bored again and got a postgraduate diploma in another different field, whilst self-studying some different fields of game development … which was fun! But after amassing the necessary skill and building a project up to its later alpha stages, then it happened, the twist. It turns out, video game development requires much, more resources than just skill to make a game that’s at least interesting and the only way around it, is to make something that’s just rushed or meh …! Oh no! The nemesis! The game must be stopped, why? Because, Sirius Pen feels like the legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto-san used to say ” If it’s not interesting, then why make it?” But luckily for Sirius Pen, Sirius Pen had been working part-time on something, writing a story, which is both fun and exhausting. Then it got scrapped, because working on both games and writing is, well overkill and ridiculously daunting. In 2020 that story was axed, but with nothing else, interesting enough to turn to, Sirius Pen took the pen! No, wait! Sirius Pen meant … the smartphone! After game development was halted in June and the year 2021, writing began, again with the terribly named story ” The girl who helped”, then it got changed to “Estera” and later “SHIMMERS OF ESTERA” and later divided into five parts, what can I say, that little child of a book grew way too fast on countless gruelling revisions that made Sirius Pen sick, well not that dramatically sick, just burnt out, posture stuff, some days of fever and some canker sores, one of which that lasted for about three months, it’s nothing really. Fast forward, April 2022 here we are, Sirius Pen had finished the first two parts of the book and got them published, finally, Sirius Pen has made it to Sirius Pen’s debut as an author! P.S. Sirius Pen hopes you will enjoy this story that tells the journey of little Estera. Thank you!

Elkadanu

As Lored attempts to investigate the truth of the charges brought against Rue, the herb woman, Tari tries to hide her insecurities and doubts behind a facade of serenity.

This is a fantastic read. The characters are all well drawn and the landscape through which the characters move is familiar and easily imaginable, yet quite magical as well.” W Thomas

Lored and Tari must keep the twins’ presence on the Isle of Kiros a secret, as the taku-kevir starts to question witnesses to events that happened over a year before.

But Lored’s investigations are hampered by the Kirridian fascination for horse-racing.

If Lored can’t free the herb woman from prison, he and Otta (who is in hiding) won’t be able to travel north to continue their pursuit of the kaerlings who have abducted Lally and Derri.

This fantasy tale will grip you from page one and won’t let you go until you’ve read every single volume in the series! If you enjoy Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Tad Williams and/or JRR Tolkien, you’ll love The Kaerling.

The Tapestry of Reality, Threads of Consciousness

New Edition. “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter.” —Max Planck, originator of Quantum Mechanics, Nobel Laureate. We perceive, conceptualize, and interact with what we call “reality” through our consciousness, and consciousness is the mystery of mysteries. Consciousness is the thing most directly known to us, and, in the assessment of scholars, from philosophers to physicists, it is the only thing directly known to us. The vast tapestry of the energy-matter “reality” that surrounds us seems far less mysterious, even though less directly known. Scientific research has provided remarkable new windows into concepts of reality, revealing it to be composed of an infinite number of threads of consciousness. “The world is a construct of our mind’s sensations, perceptions, memories. It is convenient to regard it as existing objectively on its own. But it certainly does not.” —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate “The so-called miraculous powers of a great master are a natural accompaniment to his exact understanding of subtle laws that operate in the inner cosmos of consciousness.” —Yogananda (A.D. 1893-1952) This book contains an exploration of consciousness and its most advanced abilities through accounts of explorer M.G. Hawking’s experiences in an ancient village deep in the vast frozen fortress of the Himalayas. Explore first-hand narratives of demonstrations of psychokinetic and extrasensory abilities, and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that enabled the attainment of such exceptional powers. Advanced abilities of consciousness enable a person to influence a physical system without direct physical interaction, a capacity increasing recognized in the academic and scientific communities as part of the field of human ability. Although widely acknowledged in India, Nepal, Tibet and various Himalayan areas of Asia, paranormal abilities have in the Western World been largely disregarded by the general population. However, in the scientific community the perception is very different. For example, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program pursues an agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with the physical world to enable a better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of “reality.” Results of the Princeton experimental studies, along with many similar research projects both private and governmental, here and abroad, have established paranormal abilities as operating at both the macroscopic level (using large-scale apparatus) and at the atomic level (using computerized random number generators). Although the test subjects in general have no real idea of how to focus their consciousness to influence the outcomes, over thousands of experimental runs the results have been far beyond chance expectation, demonstrating that subjects can influence outcomes that deviate significantly from the statistical norm, often by a factor of several billion-to-one. For those familiar with quantum physics, these results come as no surprise. “Atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.” —Werner Heisenberg, Nobel Laureate As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable book for anyone seeking enlarged knowledge and personal power. 2022 Edition, Nine Book Exploratory Anthology, e-reader page count 265 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Before the Unit: The Recruiting of Kevin Banks
