Endlich erfindet wieder jemand das Pop-Science-Erklärbuch neu! Wenn xkcd.com einen neuen Science Cartoon postet, vibriert das Internet. Sein Blog What if, auf dem der Physiker Randall Munroe jede Woche scheinbar unsinnige Fragen mit exakter Wissenschaft und genialen Strichmännchen beantwortet, ist Kult. Wie lange würde es dauern, bis wir merken würden, dass sich der Erdumfang verändert? Was wäre, wenn der gesamte Niederschlag in einem – quasi omnidirektionalen - Überschall-Regentropfen fiele?

DECEPTION, GREED, PERVERSION, EVIL DESIRES TO OVERCOME THE GOOD OF A NATION WHICH ONCE WAS A GOD-FEARING SUPER POWER... What If? draws you into the demonic workings of sin-filled beings who are bent on dominating and controlling self-centered, weak people who rely on a leadership who promises the gold ring but delivers the stench of sulfur, and killings so vile only the lowest of beasts could fathom. Humans see only what can be touched, what is unseen can be holy or loathsome, and what is repulsive is coming to an ungodly nation which has fallen so far you have to wonder, is there a way out? When people don't have God in their lives they can be deceived so easily. Morals and family values are so important in order to prosper in God's Name. The world has come to this point in What If? where they live for themselves, resist God's Word, and the family structure has decayed so far that there is little left that resembles what God represented in His Holy Word. How much money do we really need to be happy? What is more important, money to live or money for prestige? Who would be happier at the end of the day, the end of the world? What will become of this place most call home when Robert steps into the leadership role for which he has been programmed and customized? Will Sabula fulfill the purpose for which she was placed here? Will Father John succeed in his role of informant? Will Steven, Penny, Dale, and Lisa follow God's Plan? Read how it all began and where it is going.

Thought experimentation has been a staple of philosophical methodology since classical antiquity, when Xenophanes of Colophon speculated that if horses had gods, they would be equine in form. Nicholas Rescher's What If? undertakes a systematic survey of the role and utility of thought experiments in philosophy. After surveying the historical issues, Rescher examines the principles involved, and explains the conditions under which thought experimentation can validly yield instructive results in philosophy. The reader gains understanding of the differences between scientific and philosophical experiments. What If? begins by examining the nature of thought experiments. It presents an overview of how thought experiments have figured in natural science and in historical studies, before moving on to examine how they function as an instrument of philosophical inquiry. After examining thought experiments from the pre-Socratics to the present day, Rescher turns from history to analysis, and examines the modes of reasoning involved in the use of speculative hypotheses in philosophical problem solving. He shows the limitations of speculative ontology, showing that thought experimentation can lead readily to paradox in a way that increasingly diminishes its usefulness. The book concludes by arguing and illustrating how and when it becomes pointless to push speculation, or thought experimentation beyond the limits of intelligibility and cogent sense. Among the principal features of Rescher's book is its elaborate analysis of the appropriate conditions for philosophical thought experimentation. Its cardinal thesis is that there indeed are limits to the appropriateness of this important methodological resource and that transgressing these limits destroys the prospect of drawing any valid lessons for the philosophical enterprise. What If? will be of interest to philosophers, students of philosophy, and theorists of logic and reasoning. Nicholas Rescher is University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of numerous philosophical works and holds six honorary degrees from universities on three continents. He has served as a president of the American Philosophical Association, the American Metaphilosophical Society, and the American Catholic Philosophical Association.

How many of us have made the decision to put ourselves at-risk in the work site? Now that we have answered that question with, “I have”, how many of us have ever sat around after making that decision and said, “I knew that was going to happen”? This book is about watching people very early on in my career who constantly took risks to benefit the company’s bottom line. When I saw others do it, I decided to do it also. The results were a life time of escalating at-risk behaviour and then ultimately paying a tremendous personal price for it. In this book I share my revelations, and rationalise why I and others like me kept doing the unsafe acts. I share many heartfelt stories, some that end humourously and some that end tragically. I promise you that everything in this book is a real as it gets. Sometimes fact is indeed more terrifying than fiction. Thousands of people have attended my seminars and been moved by my lifetime of recollections. This book continues the sharing process on larger scale. For all the wrong reasons, please enjoy this book of my life.

You are a pawn of fate. Your life is a rudderless boat, drifting unprotected upon the tumultuous waves of elements beyond your control. You are at the mercy of a world that exists apart from yourself, a victim trapped by events thrust upon you. People dislike you; nobody loves you. You have financial problems and have trouble making ends meet. You are overweight and unhappy about your condition. You are a vulnerable solitary point of unlucky ego. If you recognize feelings within you that match any of the statements above, then this book is for you. The message is this: you create your own reality with your beliefs and expectations. If you do not like the direction your life is taking, you can change it. You yourself have created those areas of your life with which you are less than pleased. You are also responsible for your successes and joys. The personal life that you know rises up from within you. If you have been praying for a change in your life, and help is not forthcoming, you will find out why. If your relationships are not working out and people turn away from you, you will learn why you are lonely. If you have financial difficulties, you will discover how to better your life. If you feel worthless, you will gain new self-confidence. Once you come to believe that you create your own reality, you will no longer feel a slave of events. Many of the concepts and ideas in this book you will also find in occult and New Age publications. New in this book is the light of my own experiences. In my early fifties, I became interested in the world of spirits. Was there life after death? I read many occult books to find the answer. However, the recurring subject of how you propel your thoughts and emotions into physical events, creating your own reality kept coming back to me. Why waste time here on earth to find out what lies beyond, when I will have plenty of time to find that out when and if I cross over? Instead, why not investigate this intriguing subject of how we create our own physical reality while I am still here I became a serious student of how consciousness creates. Books on the subject explained the theory, and I put it to the test. Results of my early experiments were trivial, just leaves in the wind, but they all blew in the same direction and formed a pattern. This pattern strengthened my faith and encouraged me to go on. Experimental results slowly validated the theory that our beliefs shape our personal reality and our future. During the second half of a twenty-year period of study, these discoveries produced changes in my life so unbelievable that they awoke in me a desire to share the results with like-minded individuals. More precisely, it was a strong impulse from within that prompted me to start writing a book about my unusual experiences. At first, these promptings met firm resistance: “I am an engineer not a writer; I am not trained to undertake a literary project of such magnitude.” The inner voice later became very insistent, as if entities from a different dimension wanted me to write this book. I silently protested and kept repressing this inner voice. After retirement, I finally gave in. When I started writing, the material came with such ease it was as if someone had already prepared the text for me to use. In fact, as the work progressed, I had to conclude that supernatural beings, later I named them “My Friends,” from a higher dimension had been preparing the material, passing it to me through my subconscious. Therefore, I credit My Friends, wherever they are, for the initiative of writing this book, and for any new ideas that this book may introduce to you. I am also indebted to the authors listed in the bibliography for the occult and New Age ideas, vocabulary, and expressions. As someone said before me, “I am standing on the shoulder of giants,” when I write hints, clues, present words, and symbols about the human psyc
