Drawing from the horizons of science, today's leading thinkers reveal the hidden threats nobody is talking about—and expose the false fears everyone else is distracted by. What should we be worried about? That is the question John Brockman, publisher of Edge.org ("The world's smartest website"—The Guardian), posed to the planet's most influential minds. He asked them to disclose something that, for scientific reasons, worries them—particularly scenarios that aren't on the popular radar yet. Encompassing neuroscience, economics, philosophy, physics, psychology, biology, and more—here are 150 ideas that will revolutionize your understanding of the world. Steven Pinker uncovers the real risk factors for war * Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi peers into the coming virtual abyss * Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek laments our squandered opportunities to prevent global catastrophe * Seth Lloyd calculates the threat of a financial black hole * Alison Gopnik on the loss of childhood * Nassim Nicholas Taleb explains why firefighters understand risk far better than economic "experts" * Matt Ridley on the alarming re-emergence of superstition * Daniel C. Dennett and george dyson ponder the impact of a major breakdown of the Internet * Jennifer Jacquet fears human-induced damage to the planet due to "the Anthropocebo Effect" * Douglas Rushkoff fears humanity is losing its soul * Nicholas Carr on the "patience deficit" * Tim O'Reilly foresees a coming new Dark Age * Scott Atran on the homogenization of human experience * Sherry Turkle explores what's lost when kids are constantly connected * Kevin Kelly outlines the looming "underpopulation bomb" * Helen Fisher on the fate of men * Lawrence Krauss dreads what we don't know about the universe * Susan Blackmore on the loss of manual skills * Kate Jeffery on the death of death * plus J.

Some time ago I published The Theory of Universal Genesis in the book The Divine Light; this text became the first chapter in the Bible of the Light. It is a dialogue between myself and the Divine Light that appeared to me in a lucid dream and which inspired me to write all this.Bible of the Light is an anthology composed of several books published along the time as and new books which for the first time will be published. For many years I felt that I will receive these revelations from the Divine Light and that I will publish such a work entitled Bible of the Light.To those wishing to is heal through the holy breath of Divine Light, them I wish to they find the tranquility and peace through these pages. No matter how unhappy would be some, through Bible of the Light will understand that everything is just a passing cloud, and that the true eternal life is alongside the Divine Light that is the true God. Amen.This Bible will make the definitive peace between God and Satan, in the man soul, because Satan is the Evil without which the Good identified through God and would lose any luster. All churches of the world would disappear if would not more existed Satan! The spiritual peace between Satan and God lead for the first time to a healthy society, where the folly, pride, vanity and hypocrisy, alongside with many other evils will disappear and once with these and servants of a Good who can not understand the Evil.Here you will find out to whom and how should you pray if you necessarily want to do it. If is necessary to yourself pray or not. Who is God and what wants Him from us, but and who we are and what we want from God from inside us. Amen.

1. The illumination is the perfection of the absolute of us.2. Only by illuminating we can see the true Divine Light, both in the glow of happiness day and in the darkness of night of sufferings.3. Steps towards enlightenment must not be made with arrogance, infatuation or pride because through illumination does not have to you find others on you but you on you yourself.4. Never the stranger of you, may not receive illumination!5. There is no illumination without love and hope.6. Love and hope are the pillars of illumination and the truth is her soul.7. Smiles in the face of any suffering of life because they are all fleeting apart from the moment when you will become eternally through the Divine Light that guides you toward perfection.

"Everything have started by some few dreams, which not just that I would neverforget my entire life but more than that, I don't think it was just dreams in the rightsense of the notion"dream". I was conscious during the rest that I was sleeping. What itcould be said that I was dreaming is nothing else than a real experience in a space fromwhere I can come back anytime in the world where I am sleeping.I was at the beginning somewhere on the fringe of an unknown town, in the night.While I have looked at the multicolored lights from any distance, I started tobecome easier, so easy that I felt in a moment I could fly."

PhD Professor Elvira Sorohan - An existentialist poet of the 21st Century:"Move forward with reading, being curious to see you how the poet remains on same chord of background, and how deep, how seriously lives in this idea, not at all new. And it is not new for that the roots of the existentialism, reformulated modern, draw their sap from the skepticism of biblical, melancholic Ecclesiastes, discouraged, in the tragic consciousness of finitude as destiny. It is the King biblical, an, existentialist avant la lettre. He discovers that " weather is to you be born, and a time is to die", otherwise "all is hunting of wind". What else can be said new in our time, even in personal formula, when the existentialism has been intensively supported philosophically, in centuries XIX, and, XX, from Kierkegaard and up to Sartre, with specific nuances. A poem in the terms, of the existentialism status, more can interested the being of the our days, slave of the visual image and the Internet, only through adaptations or additions updated, complementary the central idea, and not finally, by the power of the return over of the self. It is about what you are trying to achieve the poet Sorin Cerin, leaving us, from the beginning, the impression that he lives the miracle creative, the inspiration."

Complete reference edition. A new philosophical system created by Sorin Cerin. Its principles are: 1. The only true philosophy is the one accepting that Man does neither know the Truth, and implicitly, nor philosophy. 2. Man shall never neither know the Absolute Truth nor the Absolute Knowledge because his entire existence is based on the Illusion of Life. 3. Any philosophical system or philosopher which will pretend that says the Truth is liar. 4. The Coaxialism is, by excellence, the philosophy that does NOT pretend that it speaks the Truth, yet that accepts applications which sustain the reporting of the Illusion of Life to the Truth. 5. The Essence of the Truth consists in its reflection at the Elements appeared before its, as are those of Open Knowledge coming from the State of Fact. 6. The Coaxialism accepts operation with the opposites of the opposites of the Existence, with or without to be necessary the reporting to it, determining the Coaxiology. 7. Each Opposite has at Infinite another Opposite identical to it. 8. With as, an Opposite, is farther, so, between it and the Element opposable are inserted a larger number of opposites, with so the similarities between them will be more pronounced, and, with as, the number of opposites intercalated between the two Elements, will be smaller, with so, the contrasts between them will be more pronounced. 9. How can we speak of Universes without substrate in Existence, we can speak of the Knowledge without substrate in essence, hence, without subject. 10. The factor will always be the opposite of the infinity, face to which it will report as finite, just as the Knowledge is reported to the Un-knowledge, and the life to Death. In understanding coaxial, the Factor will be equivalent to God, the Unique Creator but and, by chance, face of his worlds. 11. In the worlds of each Creator Factor and Unique by Chance it will reflect all other Creator Factors and Unique by Chance under form of numbers, from ONE, which is the Primordial Factor, up to an infinite minus ONE of theCreator Factors and Unique Chance.
