In 1990 I believe I had a near-death experience after falling backwards on pavement. I hit the back of my head, and most likely had a concussion. After falling asleep my life flashed before my eyes. I saw myself rising through a cloudy sky, and heard a woman's voice. She told me it wasn't my time to die, and I must return to Earth. She reminded me of my destiny to become a writer. I was shown information into my future, people, places, and things I would see. I was also shown information that appeared to be during the turn of the twentieth century. I was shown a woman, and some aspects of her life. I was told I fit into this scenario somehow. This wasn't the first time I had received visions. Throughout my life I had received information of both my future, and what I was told was my past-life. I lived to see the future aspects unfold, but was this past-life real? This is a story of a spiritual journey that spans over 100 years. Come join me in this elusive enigma

"cracking stuff . . . vivid and hitherto unknown details."-Sunday Times (London) The complete untold story of the cracking of the infamous Nazi code Most histories of the cracking of the elusive Enigma code focus on the work done by the codebreakers at Bletchley Park, Britain's famous World War II counterintelligence station. In this fascinating account, however, we are told, for the first time, the hair-raising stories of the heroic British and American sailors, spies, and secret agents who put their lives on the line to provide the codebreakers with the materials they needed. Noted British journalist Hugh Sebag-Montefiore tracked down many of the surviving players in the Enigma drama, and these witnesses-some of them speaking on record for the first time-provide unforgettable firsthand accounts of the courageous men and women who faced death in order to capture vital codebooks from sinking ships and snatch them from under the noses of Nazi officials. In addition to these gripping stories, we learn fascinating new details about the genesis of the code and the feverish activities at Bletchley. Enigma is a spellbinding account of the brilliant feat of decryption that turned the tide of World War II.

Karla Homolka has proven to be a figure of enduring interest to the public and media for the last 20 years. However, despite the widespread Canadian and international public commentary and media frenzy that has encircled this case, Homolka herself remains an enigma to most who write about her. In contrast to much of the contemporary discussion on this case, this book offers a comprehensive and detailed examination of the legal, public and media understandings and explanations of Homolka’s criminality. Drawing from multiple fields of study and varied bodies of critical literature, the book uses Homolka as an object lesson to interrogate some of the narratives and conceptualizations of ‘violent women’, the problematic normative constructions of womanhood and ‘acceptable femininity’, leniency in sentencing, taboo and disgust, and questions of remorse. The authors address broad questions about how women convicted of violence are typically constructed across four sites: the courts; the academy; the mainstream media; and public discourse. This unique text is extremely important for feminist criminology and socio-legal studies, offering the first comprehensive academic effort to engage in dialogue about this important and fascinating case.

He uses logical reasoning along with scientific analysis to answer the age-old question of "why we are here" and "where we are going" afterwards. Combining intuition and a creative mind to support his theory, Kampos shows us there is a reason for everything that happens in life, highlighting the role that destiny plays in the process.

Fascinated by optical phenomena and curious to explore the limits of picture making, painters share a long history of creating visual puzzles, composite pictures with shifting perspectives. Ambiguous images whose various levels of meaning depend entirely on the observer's point of view have drawn more than a few painters' brushes over time. This rich volume is dedicated to that multifarious tradition, from early Indian and Persian miniatures of imaginary anthropomorphic landscapes, to Giuseppe Arcimboldo's pictures of the seasons, and finally the works by the great surrealist masters Max Ernst and Salvador Dal', encountering along the way such diverse artists as Francis Picabia, William Hogarth, Leonardo da Vinci, M.C. Escher, Tony Cragg and Kara Walker. Dal', whose work is at the center of this book and gives it its title, came up with no less than seven strata of perception for his work The Endless Enigma, in which parts of the picture merge into ever-new scenarios depending on the individual area the viewer chooses to focus on. A unique presentation of ambiguous pictures that originated in different cultures and epochs, The Endless Enigma: Dal' and the Magicians of Multiple Meaning reveals the enormous complexity of this artistic phenomenon, underlining the meaning of the method of seeing and discovering.

Embryogenesis is an unusual book in that it brings together a highly illustrated, practical embryology book in simple language, perfect for health practitioners, with a fascinating read on the history and philosophy of biological science. It discusses the various stages of embryonic development (meiosis, fertilization, blastula development, and gastrulation, and then the embryology of each of the human organs and organ systems in detail). It puts each of them in context, both in terms of its phylogeny: the evolutionary trajectory of cell-organized systems on Earth, and its ontogeny: the formation of individual organisms in the modern world. There are 24 color plates, many of them commissioned uniquely for this volume, and several hundred black and white illustrations. The book is 950 pages hardcover, 8-1/2 by 10. Chapters include: The Original Earth; The Materials of Life; The First Beings; The Cell; The Genetic Code; Sperm and Egg; Fertilization; The Blastula; Gastrulation; Morphogenesis; Biological Fields; Chaos, Fractals, and Deep Structure; Ontogeny and Phylogeny; and Biotechnology. The Origin of the Nervous System; The Evolution of Intelligence; Neurulation and the Human Brain; Organogenesis; The Musculoskeletal and Hematopoietic Systems; Mind; The Origin of Sexuality and Gender. Healing; Transsexuality, Intersexuality, and the Cultural Basis of Gender; Self and Desire; Cosmogenesis and Mortality

In a quiet graveyard in rural England a well-dressed man is digging at a tomb. He is careful not to disturb the occupant’s slumbers as he removes a deeply buried package. He recovers the find and drives away. Shortly afterwards, another man also approaches the grave. He, however, is disappointed. This nerve-tingling operation is part of a cat-and-mouse plot played out between the police and the possessor of a rare and valuable Enigma machine that had been stolen from Bletchley Park. This bizarre episode in Bletchley Park’s history is as mysterious as the activities of the wartime codebreakers who worked there. In this gripping detective story Christine Large, Director of Bletchley Park, reveals the theft’s inside story and explains exactly how the person in possession of the machine was caught.

Poetry. "Argüelles is the living embodiment of the epic strain. He gives us genuinely singing lines, a music worthy of Homer himself, but in a polyform that Homer could never have imagined. ENIGMA & VARIATIONS integrates an empire's brutal history with parallel mythos and an eternal hymn to the omnipresent goddess with a panoramic scope that defies the limitations of human consciousness. In so doing it opens us to the great mystery beyond"—Jake Barry.
