Committee of Detail : A Constitutional Ghost Story

By: Sam Walker

A fictional tale of politics and historical truth … about a courageous Latina woman who becomes president of the United States, the natural born citizen clause, and James Wilson, a founding father who wrote most of the Constitution in one heroic day, only to be utterly forgotten by American history.

“Madam President,” the old man says. “I beg you to excuse my appearance. You see, I have not eaten or changed clothes or bathed for 230 years, and I know it shows. However, I pray that my offensive physical figure will not diminish the message I bring to you."

Miscellaneous Jottings : of Lindsay Falvey from diverse books read...

By: Dr. Lindsay Falvey

This miscellany of thoughts stimulated by books I have read was for my own purposes. As is normal, my thoughts today have moved on with time, yet they are useful for me to see where some ideas may have arisen. Whether seen as essays, a diary or a like a blog is of little concern to me, for it is just a convergence of my understanding and questioning and as such can seen repetitive.

Oliver's tale has been retold on stage, in graphic novels and on small and large screens. This time the story is transformed into a rhyming poem in which no actor or scene is overlooked. The abiding tale of childhood crime and redemption transformed yet again

Thinking Explored

By: Shelton Ranasinghe

This essay takes a stab at the difficult question of “What is thinking?” I am using simple logic construed in a methodical manner to answer this question. As we read through, we will inquire deep into the subject of thinking, and develop a schematic model for “thinking”. Then we will make refinements to the model with enhancing the clarity of our logic. Towards the end, we will check whether the model that we create, could stand for wider application of thinking scenar...

Can babies think from day one? According to neuroscientists, the brain cell networks go through an enormous progression of connections, disconnections and re-connections in the cell circuitries during the first few years of our lives. The scientific literature explains what parts of the brains responsible for what functions and what parts of the brain get subject to rapid development in infants. But this essay doesn’t cover, such details, as its main intention is to exp...

The Diary of Nathan P. Finkelberg

By: Esq. Frank Grayling; Nathan P. Finkelberg

Frank Grayling and his somewhat unstable girlfriend, Alana Bushmill, go on a road trip to recover the manuscript of a ghost who claims to be the Eternal Wandering Jew. They engage in many pointless arguments but eventually reach their destination and become filthy stinking rich in the process.

Frank Grayling’s Quest My name is Frank Grayling. I live in this small apartment at the western end of the fourth largest city in North America. Not a terribly important detail given the nature of the facts I am about to set down here. But should this document fall into the wrong hands before I kick off, it might turn out to be of some significance. And I might as well get it out in the open right off the bat. I, dear future reader, am a CSIS operant and have been...

Les réalités de la réalité - quatrième partie : la réalité derrièr...

By: Fritz Dufour

Ce livre est organisé en sept chapitres. Le premier chapitre examine les origines et les causes de la guerre. Le chapitre soutient que la guerre est une conséquence de la façon dont nous, en tant qu'espèce, avons évolué. La guerre a des causes endogènes et exogènes. Alors que le premier dépend de notre biologie et de notre psychologie, le second concerne principalement les relations internationales. Le chapitre deux plaide en faveur de la nature paradoxale de la guerre. ...

La paix entre les nations est-elle une utopie? Certains diraient oui, d'autres diraient non. En fait, cela dépend de la façon dont on définit la paix. Est-ce l'absence de conflit international ou de guerre? Est-ce l'absence de violence ou la peur de la violence aux niveaux national et international? Mieux encore, la violence n'est-elle pas ancrée dans notre ADN, en tant qu'espèce? Ne sommes-nous pas voués à nous battre pour des ressources, à mettre constamment notre prop...

The Realities of Reality - Part IV: The Reality Behind Achieving W...

By: Fritz Dufour

This book is organized in seven chapters. Chapter one looks at the origins and the causes of war. The chapter argues that war is a consequence of how we, as a species, have evolved. War has both endogenous and exogenous causes. While the former depends on our biology and psychology, the latter has to do primarily with international relations. Chapter two makes the case for the paradoxical nature of war. While war takes lives, it is legitimate under certain circumstances....

Is peace among nations a utopia? Some would say yes, others would say no. In fact, it depends on how one defines peace. Is it the absence of international conflict or war? Is it the absence of violence or fear of violence both at the national and the international levels? Better yet, isn’t violence embedded in our DNA, as a species? Aren’t we doomed to compete for resources, to constantly put our own survival instinct to work? There is a lot of moving parts in the concep...

Hair Trigger

By: Holly Bargo

A female gunslinger returns to her hometown to claim her inheritance and get justice for her father’s wrongful death, but crashes into a statute of limitations.

“No little girl should have to see her daddy hanged.” The words slid under the high-pitched wails of the condemned man’s daughter and widow. Harriet didn’t know who said them and didn’t care, even though she empathized with the towheaded child. “Reminds me of the time Angus McGraw was hung for cattle rustlin’,” the same man commented to the person standing next to him. “Who?” “That were ’bout fifteen, mebbe twenty, years past.” It was twelve years ago, Harriet silen...

By: Mrs. Johanna Jacoba du Plessis; Jaime Ribeiro, Editor

A look into the psychological individuation process as described by Jung via the medium of fantasy. How to navigate the maze of projections to overcome fear.

She heard the fly buzzing right beside her, only millimetres away from her left ear, but before she could turn to catch it, it flew into the mirror through to the other side and sat down on the shoulder of her now rapidly dissipating reflection. With this, all the mirrors in the castle began to crack. Marjorie cowered and covered her head with her arms. The castle was being destroyed. Thousands of shards fell to the floor amidst this play of colour, and something caug...

MARY : In the Song of Solomon: In the Song of Solomon

By: Rochelle Laura

From the time of His birth to the Cross at Calvary, Mary witnessed and was the first disciple of our Lord.

Pope Pius IX once said, “God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation.” The Mary moments in the New Testament point to Jesus each and every time. Her song, her encounter with Jesus in the temple, her intervention at the wedding at Cana and her standing at the cross lead us back to Jesus, His mission and our salvation. Her life was to witness to the glory...

L'adulte autiste : comment mieux intervenir auprès des adultes au...

By: Isabelle Faguy

C’est un livre qui va provoquer des chocs. L’autisme, quand on est adulte, ça se caractérise surtout par des capacités en dents de scie, j’en parlerai abondamment dans ce livre. L’autiste au naturel, c’est une personne tout en extrêmes et très peu en nuances. Bien sûr, avec les années, on essaie de se nuancer... Il ne faut pas oublier que l’adulte autiste est un humain, qui a vécu des expériences de vie uniques et qui a fait des apprentissages.

La perception qu’à du monde une personne autiste est unique. L’autiste perçoit des choses que les autres autour de lui sont incapables de percevoir ou d’interpréter. Par contre, certaines choses qui semblent évidentes aux autres peuvent lui être imperceptibles ou impossibles à interpréter. Il est probablement impossible pour une personne neurotypique d’imaginer à quel point nos perceptions sont différentes. L’autiste perçoit tout jusque dans les moindres détails et il ...
