Shortlisted for the 2020 RBC Taylor Prize From one of the world's most engaging science journalists, a groundbreaking and wonder-filled look at the hidden things that shape our lives in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Our naked eyes see only a thin sliver of reality. We are blind in comparison to the X-rays that peer through skin, the mass spectrometers that detect the dead inside the living, or the high-tech surveillance systems that see with artificial intelligence. And we are blind compared to the animals that can see in infrared, or ultraviolet, or in 360-degree vision. These animals live in the same world we do, but they see something quite different when they look around. With all of the curiosity and flair that drives her broadcasting, Ziya Tong illuminates this hidden world, and takes us on a journey to examine ten of humanity's biggest blind spots. First, we are introduced to the blind spots we are all born with, to see how technology reveals an astonishing world that exists beyond our human senses. It is with these new ways of seeing that today's scientists can image everything from an atom to a black hole. In Section Two, our collective blind spots are exposed. It's not that we can't see, Tong reminds us. It's that we don't. In the 21st century, there are cameras everywhere, except where our food comes from, where our energy comes from, and where our waste goes. Being in the dark when it comes to how we survive makes it impossible to navigate our future. Lastly, the scope widens to our civilizational blind spots. Here, the blurred lens of history reveals how we inherit ways of thinking about the world that seem natural or inevitable but are in fact little more than traditions, ways of seeing the world that have come to harm it. This vitally important new book shows how science, and the curiosity that drives it, can help civilization flourish by opening our eyes to the landscape laid out before us. Fast-paced, utterly fascinating, and deeply humane, The Reality Bubble gives voice to the sense we've all had -- that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

For centuries scientists and theologians have argued about the origin, structure, function, and purpose of the universe, with no end in sight. In the meantime, the average human being, when not overwhelmed by activities needed for mere survival, has wondered who we are, where we came from, and why we?re here. Dr. Michael Bohley believes that the answers we seek are hiding in plain sight, available to anyone with a healthy brain, regardless of level of education or specialization in certain obscure fields of science, theology, or philosophy. The answers are to be found within the sphere of our beliefs and how they help to shape the world around us.

Life's experiences are usually understood through your belief system. In reality it
is your belief system, which creates your experience. So your outlook is limited.

Infected in 1992, Stephen sought self transformation to successfully manage his HIV. His book It's All About Love: How To Have A Better Life became the philosophical product of that method and provides the basis for Healing HIV. He examines the sociology of the disease and uses it to prove the metaphysical causes showing that by addressing the physical causes at their non physical cause you can have a perfectly normal life without medication just as he does. Being a holistic approach he describes the emotional causes and provides remedies to clear these blockages that are impacting you physically and in the quality of your life on all its levels. "You have cleared the overgrown terrain of all the misconceptions regarding the experience of HIV. As a pioneer you have seen the new land of possibility for others to embrace" -Dr Sharron Stroud (Outstanding Woman of the 20th Century).

The boom in protective security in Iraq has helped to create a group of British private security companies (PSCs) keen to establish a separate, British identity within a sector hitherto dominated by US companies. This paper presents a personal view from within one British PSC-- AEGIS-- and highlights the key issues likely to shape the debate about PSCs in the short and medium term.
