COVID-19: THE INS AND OUTS OF THE PANDEMIC

Information overload and medical jargon have invaded our daily lives since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. If you find yourself lost in the vastness of this information or still wondering how this could happen, then read on! Complex medical and scientific information—PCR tests, immunological memory, spike proteins, variants, and mutations, just to name a few—have become very familiar since the outbreak of COVID-19, have they not? What do these terms really mean, and just how much do you really know? This book explains all you need to know about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic: pathology, diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and so much more—an easy-to-follow guide using language that you can understand. After reading this book, you will be able to finally make sense of the media reports and scientific data that have become a part of your daily life.

Why You Can’t Catch a Rocket to Mars: Some Personal Reflections on Science and Society, by Lyndon N. Smith

Have you ever wondered why you can’t catch a rocket to Mars? Or Jupiter, or Pluto, or the nearest star? The latter is an exciting prospect, since it is orbited by an ‘exo’ (earth-like) planet that might support life. This richly illustrated book will explain why getting there is not as crazy an idea as you might think. It will also help you understand what has been holding back science and technology for many years, or decades, and what we can do about it; as well as providing a fascinating glimpse into a wide range of fantastic future possibilities. Artificial intelligence, or AI, which is presented as a key means for us to achieve these goals, is discussed in depth. The author, Lyndon N. Smith, is a professor in AI at a major UK university, with a background in physics and engineering, and over 25 years of research experience (on both sides of the Atlantic). After publishing 180 scientific papers and a number of academic books, he explains in this unique, provocative, and accessible book, not only what amazing tasks can be achieved by modern AI techniques such as ‘convolutional neural networks’ – but also how they actually work! This is followed by an enlightening survey of potential and definite threats that we all face (with possible responses), that include Brexit, contact with extra-terrestrials (ET), near Earth objects (NEOs) colliding with the Earth, viruses, and global warming. There is then a discussion of fascinating technological developments that we may expect to see in the near, and far, future. Here topics addressed include: transport, robotics (from Robby the Robot through to Data), elimination of the need for instrumentalities, prospects for abundant power, manufacture of any objects we desire, as well as the likelihood of a number of miscellaneous miracles that include: invisibility, truly useful nanotechnology, and space elevators. The author goes on to discuss the effects we may expect such advanced technologies to have on our lives, including the prospects for eternal life and attainment of velocities in excess of that of light for interstellar travel; with all the astonishing implications the latter would have for overcoming the previously mentioned threats, as well as facilitating human exploration and possible colonisation of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond. As though this wasn’t enough, a range of predictions are then given of the amazing technological developments expected in the far future. The author encourages us to ‘reach for the stars’ and concludes that we have it in our power to realise a new Golden Age for humanity – providing we can find the wisdom to avoid destroying ourselves in a nuclear Armageddon and instead focus our efforts on the powerful potential of future research and development. If you have any interest in science and technology, and its effects on society – and more specifically your future life (and who hasn’t?), you will find this book engrossing and enlightening. As well as employing a highly accessible and breezy style, the author makes liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. The result is a very engaging book that you will not be able to put down nor stop thinking about. You will wonder why we don’t hear more about how all the technologies that surround us can and should help improve our quality of life (much more than they currently do), both now and in the future. You will understand why we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And, you will never view Sherlock Holmes or Star Trek in the same way again!

Meet Prof. Lyndon N. Smith

About Prof Lyndon Neal Smith PhD Lyndon N. Smith has a strong interest in science and technology, and a particular fascination with developments in physics and engineering that can have potentially revolutionary effects on the way we live. He feels that scientific and technological developments of recent decades have been less dramatic than was expected, say, seventy years ago and that an investigation into why this is the case and what we can do about it is well overdue. His background includes degrees in physics, robotics and engineering, as well as 26 years of research experience in the UK (and USA), which has resulted in 180 technical papers, two books and the supervision of 20 PhDs. As well as being a professor at a major UK university, he is also something of a bibliophile; but has had a long-standing concern about the lack of accessibility of many science and technology related publications, in terms of the associated difficulties with public engagement with science, as well as reducing the likelihood of science having a strong and beneficial impact on society. He believes that one way to increase the accessibility of science is to employ an informal style, and to make liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. This is what he has aimed to do with his new book. His intention is to make you wonder why we don’t hear more about how modern technologies can revolutionise our lives. He believes we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And he uses discussion of people and events from the past, as well as various predictions of the possible future, to throw light on the situation for science and technology, and what developments we might expect going forward. Lyndon lives in Central Somerset, with his wife and son.

Curious Matrix

Curiosity is all around us. You just need to explore it. This book is doing exactly that – exploring various questions and hypotheseses about past, present and future world and society we’re living in. What you are going to read is by no means scientifically accurate in every way or a complete truth, but it is one man’s reflections on different topics with a pinch of creativity. A good part of the book is supported by various research, but a good portion is open to the imagination. That’s why I wrote this book, to share my view, which can be correct, it can be fictional and imaginable, but it is curious and explorational in many ways. That is the essence of writing – to explore your mind while bringing fiction closer to nonfiction. The book consists of 18 chapters that are not connected subjectwise but are somehow connected in curiosity. Those chapters are structured to make you question your foundations of thinking and consider difficult subjects. Whether those are; a future world with sex robots, a world without weapons, or perhaps a world without electricity, I think they are very interesting questions that are open to interpretation.

Meet Domagoj Pernar

Born and raised in Croatia, Domagoj Pernar was always a curious fellow. From his young days, he was interested in many different topics ranging from Russian authors such as Dostoevsky to interests in computers, informatics science, and mechanics. Later in life, he started researching philosophical theories and the potential for a dystopian end of society (perhaps that’s why he was born in 1984.) These interests in the philosophy and meaning of life, potential future developments of the world, and overall curiosity about today’s (and past) world led to journaling of his thoughts.

The Remnants: Essays, Interviews, & Other Writings

After publishing his bestselling novel The Transhumanist Wager in 2013, Zoltan Istvan began frequently writing essays about the future. A former journalist with National Geographic, Istvan’s essays spanned topics from the Singularity to cyborgism to radical longevity to futurist philosophy. He also wrote about politics as he made a surprisingly popular run for the US Presidency in 2016, touring the country aboard his coffin-shaped Immortality Bus, which The New York Times Magazine called “The great sarcophagus of the American highway…a metaphor of life itself.” Zoltan’s provocative campaign and radical tech-themed articles garnered him the title of the “Science Candidate” by his supporters. Many of his writings—published in Vice, Quartz, Slate, The Guardian, International Living, Yahoo! News, Gizmodo, TechCruch, Psychology Today, Salon, New Scientist, Business Insider, The Daily Dot, Maven, Cato Institute, The Daily Caller, Metro, International Business Times, Wired UK, The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsweek, and The New York Times—went viral on the internet, garnishing millions of reads and tens of thousands of comments. His articles—often seen as controversial, provocative, and secular—elevated him to worldwide recognition as one of the de facto leaders of the burgeoning transhumanism movement. Here are many of those watershed essays again, organized, edited, and occasionally readapted by the author in this comprehensive nonfiction work, The Remnants: Essays, Interviews, and Other Writings. Also included are some of Zoltan’s new writings, never published before. This book is part of a 7-book box set collection of his essential work, the Zoltan Istvan Futurist Collection, focusing on futurism, secularism, life extension, politics, philosophy, transhumanism and his early writings. Enjoy reading about the future according to Zoltan Istvan.

“In China we can criticize Darwin, but not the government. In America, you can criticize the government, but not Darwin”. – Jun-Yuan Chen (Paleontologist)

In this groundbreaking book, John Morrison examines the theory of evolution currently being taught in high schools and colleges across the world. This planet was once nothing but liquid and gas but somehow, over billions of years, the countless number of living organisms currently on earth came into existence. This includes humans descending from apes.

Once the currently taught theory is understood, John then proceeds to explain what the textbooks don’t teach which puts the theory of evolution in a new light. Once you’re done reading Evolution’s Final Days, you’ll realize that the theory of evolution could never have happened in the way scientists proclaim, and the many reasons why new theories are not currently being taught. You’ll understand why we need to stand up as a community, and fight for science to be taught as it was intended. And you’ll come to know why the theory of evolution is truly in its final days!

Whether you’re new to the theory of evolution or have your PhD, this book will truly make you question what you have been told, and you’ll be sure to learn new information you may have never knew existed.

As a FREE bonus, only for book buyers, you’ll receive John’s special reports titled The Top 5 World Mysteries and The Top 5 Most Haunted Places in America. These special reports are not available to the public, or anywhere else. They exists solely as a “thank you” to buyers of this book.
