I am a ghost writer.
I died July 25, 2015, in Hightstown, New Jersey.
My scholarship is the bedrock for the serious study of British drama to 1770. Any graduate student or academic working on the plays or the theatrical culture of this period has to start with me.
In addition to my comprehensive Tudor and Stuart Stage, I wrote a wide range of works on Shakespeare and other figures of the English Renaissance. My essay "Shakespeare's Celibate Stage," originally published in the inaugural issue of The New and Improved Shakespeare Survey With Textual Analysis, has been widely reprinted. I edited several works for modern editions, including Othello, Hamlet, All Fools, and The Alchemist.
I raised a literary stir when I edited and wrote the preface to a hitherto unknown 1577 text called The Arte of Angling in which I noted several passages that reminded me of Isaac Walton's later The Compleat Angler. A British authority on fishing literature defended Walton, saying, "It seems to me ...

This is a photography book; it does not explain or attempt to teach you about photography, in Arizona or anywhere else. One of the greatest pleasures about photography is experimenting to see if the image you capture resembles the image you had in your mind when you took it.
This book is small; it is intended to be small. It is an attempt to bring the cost of photography books down to as low as they can go without sacrificing digital quality of the images within. This is the twenty eighth volume in a series, length or number unknown at the moment. However, when the series becomes sufficiently voluminous, they will be combined into a larger, and unfortunately more expensive, volume.
This volume contains about 40 images. Future volumes may contain a few more or a few less depending upon final digital size. I sincerely hope you enjoy the images within.

Neuroplasticity is the change in neural pathways and synapses that occurs due to certain factors, like behavior, environment, or neural processes. During such changes, the brain engages in synaptic pruning, deleting the neural connections that are no longer necessary or useful, and strengthening the necessary ones.
Fifty years ago, neuroscientists thought that a mature brain was fixed like a fly in amber, unable to change. Today, we know that our brains and nervous systems change throughout our lifetimes. This concept of neuroplasticity has captured the imagination of a public eager for self-improvement and has inspired countless Internet entrepreneurs who peddle dubious "brain training" games and apps.

He desires the world to become his own, and he'll stop at nothing to climb the Pharaoh's throne.
Lords of the Black Sands - a dark and vivid look at a future that may yet be.
From best-selling sci-fi and fantasy author, J Edward Neill
There are currently 2 very different ideas on what it means to "hate". First, there is what I call a Vertical worldview [a hierarchical view of Nature and life ascending from plants to animals to people to God] where "hate" is a spiritual desire to destroy. Even God is said to "hate evil" in various passages of Scripture. Think about it. Animals can brutally destroy other animals but we do not say they hate each other. Only a spiritual being can hate.
Indeed, hate should have no theoretical place in the Flat (or secular) worldview--which is devoid of spiritual concepts. However, our new culture has derived a physical meaning for the term "hate" which might be summarized like this: "hate" is to act on the presumption of inequality.
Did you catch that? In the Flat worldview, to "hate" is to have a Vertical worldview. If you see the world [as it really is] as an unequal environment, you are not worthy of debate. You are a hater. And therein lies the rub. This is why the radical Left ...

In these introductory lectures on karma, as Steiner begins by explaining that, although it is not present in exoteric Christianity, in the inner circles of esoteric Christianity, karma was continuously taught. It was important that each of us go through at least one incarnation without awareness of reincarnation and karma, but as this is accomplished, the time will come when reincarnation and karma must be widely taught again.

Materialism will have dire effects including universal, congenital nervousness if it is allowed to continue. This is one of the main reasons why the wise guides of humanity decided to begin revealing spiritual wisdom through theosophy.
The third lecture makes it clear that we can speak of karma only since the Luciferic intervention. Isn't the law of karma terrible in its inevitability? No, like a businessman, we can ...
