Biocentrism shocked the world with a radical rethinking of the nature of reality. But that was just the beginning. In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People in 2014," and leading astronomer Bob Berman, take the reader on an intellectual thrill-ride as they re-examine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself. The first step is acknowledging that our existing model of reality is looking increasingly creaky in the face of recent scientific discoveries. Science tells us with some precision that the universe is 26.8 percent dark matter, 68.3 percent dark energy, and only 4.9 percent ordinary matter, but must confess that it doesn’t really know what dark matter is and knows even less about dark energy. Science is increasingly pointing toward an infinite universe but has no ability to explain what that really means. Concepts such as time, space, and even causality are increasingly being demonstrated as meaningless. All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness but science hasn’t the foggiest idea what consciousness is, and it can’t explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as an random occurrence in a dead universe but has no real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exquisitely designed for the emergence of life. The biocentrism theory isn’t a rejection of science. Quite the opposite. Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and consciousness. By listening to what the science is telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are fundamental to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe.

You’ve probably heard dire warnings about artificial intelligence from figures such as the late Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk regarding the dangers of artificial intelligence. We shouldn’t dismiss these experts, but we can harness the potential of AI to build a future that is both sustainable and profitable beyond our dreams. To accomplish this, we must bring together leadership teams from various fields to mindfully grow, develop, and integrate AI technologies in the most ethical, secure, and transparent ways possible. Susan and Todd Rebner take a deep dive into AI, highlighting how companies, agencies, educational institutions, brick and mortar retail stores, financial giants, and individuals can use it to create a better future. Their crucial point is that in the hands of the right organizational leader, AI will be seen as the most powerful tool humanity has ever created to solve the world's greatest problems, not create them.

 Fatherhood is a foundational human endeavor steeped in the history of familial and societal development. Every father has within himself the makings of a "complete" parent in terms of his sense of fulfillment. Are you the type of father that you truly want to be? Do you feel secure in your decision-making? Do you sense that you come across as too strict at times, or too lenient? Can you be playful and spontaneous when you want to be? Are you comfortable with having those difficult conversations? Drawing on Carl Jung's theories, this book discusses several father archetypes, presenting a positive view of fatherhood that emphasizes its manifestations and benefits in childrens' lives rather than the difficulties and struggles of parenting.
