SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE Even small children know there are infinitely many whole numbers - start counting and you'll never reach the end. But there are also infinitely many decimal numbers between zero and one. Are these two types of infinity the same? Are they larger or smaller than each other? Can we even talk about 'larger' and 'smaller' when we talk about infinity? In Beyond Infinity, international maths sensation Eugenia Cheng reveals the inner workings of infinity. What happens when a new guest arrives at your infinite hotel - but you already have an infinite number of guests? How does infinity give Zeno's tortoise the edge in a paradoxical foot-race with Achilles? And can we really make an infinite number of cookies from a finite amount of cookie dough? Wielding an armoury of inventive, intuitive metaphor, Cheng draws beginners and enthusiasts alike into the heart of this mysterious, powerful concept to reveal fundamental truths about mathematics, all the way from the infinitely large down to the infinitely small.

This poetry book is a realm of dreams and thoughts unheard over the noise of modern time enemies like ego, anger, greed, ignorance, and lust for money and all the material things. This book is about the hard temptation of breaking chains from the dragged career and became free to dream beyond everything and strike like a humongous lightning bolt and burn down all this enemy to ashes of new begging. Poem of Dream- a visionary unshakable mind to defeat. When the failure comes in, the dope of the dreams kicks in. Poem of love - the conqueror of the unclaimed island called the heart, the cold fire which creates a beauty instead of burn. And there are many more poems which revolve around the words like winter, hope, infinite loop; redemption, time and death (live before leave). Origin of these poems is the childish question and imagination of childhood which is lacking in adults right now. All are just trapped in the mechanism of virtual success, but what about success for the soul. Here are some of my childish questions: 1.what is the colors of our dream? 2. What is at the end of the rainbow? 3. What will you say if I ask you what is the shape of the smile? 4. Do you ever think of how much distance there is between two heartbeats? I am answering these questions through my poems. And many more feelings and emotions are equally poured by thunderbolts of words. All these poems are just trying to capture my transcendence feeling into simple words.

Entropy is a measure of order and disorder. If left alone, aging systems go spontaneously from youthful, low entropy and order to old, high entropy and disorder. This book presents the commonality of entropy principles which govern the birth, maturation, and senescent history of aging humans, corporations, and the universe. Mainly we introduce an entropy theory of aging, based on the non-equilibrium thermodynamic ideas of Ilya Prigogine, leading to the thermodynamic concepts of Excess Entropy (EE) and Excess Entropy Production (EEP). We describe the aging process in humans in terms of the EE and EEP concepts. This book also describes the informational entropy theory and equations of Claude Shannon and the six Hershey parameters which trace and mark the lifecycle of corporations. To conclude, this volume uses classical and informational entropy concepts, equations and calculations to explain the birth, evolution, and death of our aging universe, and all of this in relation to the concept of Infinity. Contents:Life and DeathEntropy, Infinity and GodLifespan and Factors Affecting It: HumansEntropy Theory of Aging Systems: HumansEntropy Theory of Aging Systems: The CorporationEntropy Theory at Aging Systems: The Universe Readership: General audience, astrophysicists, physical chemists, researchers and academics in chaos, physics, engineering, mathematics, social science and life sciences.

Taoist techniques that can quiet your mind so you can discover your true self in the wisdom of the heart • Teaches that the Tao is the flow of nature, the effortless middle path of self-discovery • Shows how to quiet the monkey mind (the ego) and listen within for your inner voice • Fosters a connection to the Tao through diet, exercise, livelihood, and sexuality Taoists say that we must learn to observe with the mind and think with the heart. In the West we get caught up in the “monkey mind” of our ego. We think we can control our individual destinies by swimming upstream against the current, but we are mistaken. When we learn to quiet the monkey mind with meditation practices, we are able to go beyond the linear thinking of the upper brain and connect to the multidimensional thinking of supreme consciousness in the heart center. In Living in the Tao, Master Mantak Chia and William Wei present techniques to help us learn to move beyond the limits of time and space to connect with the universal truth within--without striving. Living in the Tao is effortless. Just as a small seed grows into a mighty tree with a little water and a little sunshine every day, a few minutes of Taoist practice each day can transform your life into one of peace and joy.
