A book of science like no other, about a scientist like no other. This is a landmark in science writing. It resurrects from the vaults of neglect the polymath Jerome Cardano, a Milanese of the sixteenth century. Who is he? A gambler and blasphemer, inventor and chancer, plagued by demons and anxieties, astrologer to kings, emperors and popes. This stubborn and unworldly man was the son of a lawyer and a brothel keeper, but also a gifted physician and the unacknowledged discoverer of the mathematical foundations of quantum physics. That is the argument of this charming and intoxicatingly clever book, which is truly original in its style, and in the manner of the modernists embodies in its very form its theories about the world. The Quantum Astrologer’s Handbook is a science book with the panache of a novel, for readers of Carlo Rovelli or Umberto Eco. It is a work of and about genius.

This book leverages an alternative interpretation of Quantum Theory explored in the Cosmology of Light book series, to suggest an alternative way to conceive of the fledgling field of Quantum Computing. The dynamics of superposition and entanglement are explored from the point of view of precipitating layers of reality so set up by light traveling at slower and slower speeds down to c, to in fact arrive at a different notion of quanta, of superposition, and of entanglement, that will suggest that reality at the quantum-level may be different from the view commonly held today. The very basis of modern-day quantum computing that relies on infinite number of superposed quantum states, on probability, on observable measurement that brings things into reality, is bought into question in the Light-centered Interpretation discussed in this book. In fact from the point of view of the latter interpretation superposition, entanglement, and reality take on a different meaning and the infinite processing power allegedly true of quantum states, like the new clothes in Han Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes simply does not exist in the manner in which it has been conceived. In the mathematical model of Light presented in this book all emergences are a result of the underlying fourfold properties of Light. Everything can be understood as a precise application of the core Light-Space-Time Emergence model. This is not unlike using binary representation of ones and zeros to code anything. The coding scheme here is a multi-layered fourfold symmetry, capable of modeling infinite diversity that captures functional to practical aspects that define any phenomenon or object. This scheme of coding lends itself to phenomena such as creation and emergence, and hence to a vast range of potential creative computation applications. Such a difference between construction, the focus of digital computing, and creation, the possible focus of quantum computing as elaborated in this book, is perhaps best captured by this image suggested by Albert Einstein: "Nature shows us only the tail of the lion. But there is no doubt in my mind that the lion belongs with it even if he cannot reveal himself to the eye all at once because of his huge dimension."

Fundamental does for physics what Tim's first book, Elemental, does for chemistry: it demystifies the topic in his trademark humorous, engaging style, including the most recent developments in the field. At the start of the twentieth century, science appeared complete and the laws of nature were almost all discovered, but then we woke a sleeping giant - we discovered quantum mechanics. In the quantum realm, objects can be in two places at once. It's a place where time travel is not only possible, but necessary. It's a place where cause and effect can happen in reverse and observing something changes its state. From parallel universes to antimatter, quantum mechanics has revealed that when you get right down to it, the laws of nature are insane. The scientist J. B. S. Haldane once said, 'Reality is not only stranger than we imagine . . . it's stranger than we can imagine.' Never is this more true than with quantum mechanics; our best, most recent attempt to make sense of the fundamental laws of nature. Fundamental is a comprehensive beginner's guide to quantum mechanics, explaining not only the weirdness of the subject but the experiments that proved it to be true. Using a humorous and light-hearted approach, Fundamental tells the story of how the most brilliant minds in science grappled with seemingly impossible ideas and gave us everything from microchips to particle accelerators. Fundamental gives clear explanations of all the quantum phenomena known to modern science, without requiring an understanding of complex mathematics; tells the eccentric stories of the scientists who made these shattering discoveries and what they used them for; explains how quantum field theory (a topic not covered in detail by any other popular-science book) gave rise to particle physics and why the Higgs boson isn't the end of the story.

What's the nature of reality? Does the universe ever end? What is time and does it even exist? These are the biggest imagination-stretching, brain-staggering questions in the universe - and here are their fascinating answers. From quantum weirdness to freaky cosmology (like white holes - which spew out matter instead of sucking it in), This Book Will Blow Your Mind takes you on an epic journey to the furthest extremes of science, to the things you never thought possible. This book will explain: Why is part of the universe missing (and how scientists finally found it) How time might also flow backwards How human head transplants might be possible (in the very near future) Whether the universe is a hologram And why we are all zombies Filled with counterintuitive stories and factoids you can't wait to share, as well as lots of did-you-knows and plenty of how-did-we-ever-not-knows, this new book from the bestselling New Scientist series will blow your mind - and then put it back together again. You don't need a spaceship to travel to the extremes of science. You just need this book.

The world has become increasingly networked and unpredictable. Decision makers at all levels are required to manage the consequences of complexity every day. They must deal with problems that arise unexpectedly, generate uncertainty, are characterised by interconnectivity, and spread across traditional boundaries. Simple solutions to complex problems are usually inadequate and risk exacerbating the original issues. Leaders of international bodies such as the UN, OECD, UNESCO and WHO — and of major business, public sector, charitable, and professional organizations — have all declared that systems thinking is an essential leadership skill for managing the complexity of the economic, social and environmental issues that confront decision makers. Systems thinking must be implemented more generally, and on a wider scale, to address these issues. An evaluation of different systems methodologies suggests that they concentrate on different aspects of complexity. To be in the best position to deal with complexity, decision makers must understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches and learn how to employ them in combination. This is called critical systems thinking. Making use of over 25 case studies, the book offers an account of the development of systems thinking and of major efforts to apply the approach in real-world interventions. Further, it encourages the widespread use of critical systems practice as a means of ensuring responsible leadership in a complex world. Comments on a previous version of the book: Russ Ackoff: ‘the book is the best overview of the field I have seen’ JP van Gigch: ‘Jackson does a masterful job. The book is lucid ...well written and eminently readable’ Professional Manager (Journal of the Chartered Management Institute): ‘Provides an excellent guide and introduction to systems thinking for students of management’

The next dozen years are set to be the most momentous of our lives. As humanity stands at the crossroads between a continued descent into dark materialism and the spiritual path back to the light, a great cosmic event is about to force this elemental choice. This astonishing illustrated astrological analysis shows that the present alignment of Uranus and Pluto with the Earth has set in motion a powerful Planet-Wave that will peak in 2012, heralding a period in which we face a unique opportunity to forge our destinies. Drawing a compelling analogy with quantum physics, this theory sets out the ways in which we can ride the wave by looking back into history at similar moments from the past.

Cosmopsychology The Psychology of Humans as Spiritual Beings Cosmopsychology assumes that human beings are essentially spiritual beings who are multi-dimensional, composed of many parts and connected to many dimensions of the Cosmos. It has been defined as astrology, as the study of psychospiritual development, and as the psychology of extraterrestrial beings. Cosmopsychology is the study of the relationship between the mind and the Cosmos. Cosmopsychology refers both to the correspondences between the human mind and the external universe and to the growth or evolution of the mind as it moves to higher forms of consciousness. It examines those parts, links, and dimensions that are not found in traditional, academic psychology. Cosmopsychology provides insights into your personality and your destiny through the contributions of astrology, numerology, the I Ching, Jungs Analytical psychology, Hartmanns Ego psychology, Bernes Transactional Analysis, Assagiolis Psychosynthesis, Hermeticism, Idealism, New Thought, and the Perennial Philosophy. The mysteries of karma are laid out as they are found in the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta. Psychology was built on classical physics. Cosmopsychology is built on quantum physics, the holographic universe, string theory, M-theory, and F-theory. Physics has come full circle, returning to the science of vibrations and the philosophy of idealism as taught by Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato. Everything is connected both spatially and temporally. At this deep level of Being, consciousness choices what manifests. Cosmopsychology encompasses the nature of consciousness, meditation, karma, and rebirth and examines their roles in Individuation, Self-Actualization, and Self-Realization.
