The Cycle Of Day And Night by Namkhai Norbu is a practical guide to a fundamental practice of the Dzogchen system of Tibetan Buddhism, presented in a clear and direct manner, written by an acknowledged contemporary master of this ancient tradition. Central to Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, is contemplation-the immediate experience of the primordial state of the individual, the unconditioned nature of the mind. This nature of the mind transcends the specific contents of mind, the incessant flow of thoughts reflecting our social, cultural, and psychological conditioning. Based on the teaching by Garab Dorje, the first human master of the Dzogchen lineage, The Cycle Of Day And Night gives a translation of the author's Tibetan Text, together with a commentary drawn from the author's extensive oral explanations. Actual methods are given for entering into contemplation and integrating it with our activities during the 24 hour cycle of day and night. Midwest Book Review

In this revised and updated Sixth Edition, Mike Seeds has two goals. First, he wants to show students their place in the universe-not just their location, but their role as planet dwellers in an evolving universe. His second goal is to show them how science works. Essentially, HORIZONS can be understood by a principle, organizing theme: the interplay of evidence and hypothesis. Through a discussion of this interplay, Seeds provides not just a series of facts, but a conceptual framework for understanding the logic of astronomical knowledge. A good example of this is how a survey of the solar system in Chapter 16 leads to theories that explain the origin of the solar system, which is followed by further evidence in Chapters 17 through 20 that helps students test and generalize theories. Students reading HORIZONS will not only learn about the vast reaches of the universe, they will gain new insight into the human quest to understand it. To enhance students' learning experience, each new copy of the book includes two CD-ROMs: THE SKY(tm) STUDENT EDITION CD-ROM and VOYAGE THROUGH THE SOLAR SYSTEM CD-ROM, creating the most complete media package available for an astronomy text.

Nature s Third Cycle

Nature s Third Cycle

The 11-year cycle of sunspots is one of the most intriguing natural cycles known to mankind. This book explores the fascinating science behind these phenomena and gives an insider's view of the history of the field.

The cycle of day and night and the cycle of seasons are two familiar natural cycles around which many human activities are organized. But is there a third natural cycle of importance for us humans? On 13 March 1989, six million people in Canada went without electricity for many hours: a large explosion on the sun was discovered as the cause of this blackout. Such explosions occur above sunspots, dark features on the surface of the Sun that have been observed through telescopes since the time of Galileo. The number of sunspots has been found to wax and wane over a period of 11 years. Although this cycle was discovered less than two centuries ago, it is becoming increasingly important for us as human society becomes more dependent on technology. For nearly a century after its discovery, the cause of the sunspot cycle remained completely shrouded in mystery. The 1908 discovery of strong magnetic fields in sunspots made it clear that the 11-year cycle is the magnetic cycle of the sun. It is only during the last few decades that major developments in plasma physics have at last given us the clue to the origins of the cycle and how the large explosions affecting the earth arise. Nature's Third Cycle discusses the fascinating science behind the sunspot cycle, and gives an insider's perspective of this cutting-edge scientific research from one of the leaders of the field.
