Rainbow And The Worm, The: The Physics Of Organisms (3rd Edition) (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition): Mae-Wan Ho Rainbow And The Worm, The: The Physics Of Organisms (3rd Edition) (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition)
Mae-Wan Ho
R623 Discovery Miles 6 230 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This highly unusual book began as a serious inquiry into Schroedinger's question, "What is life?", and as a celebration of life itself. It takes the reader on a voyage of discovery through many areas of contemporary physics, from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and quantum optics to liquid crystals and fractals, all necessary for illuminating the problem of life. In the process, the reader is treated to a rare and exquisite view of the organism, gaining novel insights not only into the physics, but also into "the poetry and meaning of being alive."This much-enlarged third edition includes new findings on the central role of biological water in organizing living processes; it also completes the author's novel theory of the organism and its applications in ecology, physiology and brain science.

Meaning Of Life And The Universe: Transforming (Hardcover): Mae-Wan Ho Meaning Of Life And The Universe: Transforming (Hardcover)

The scope of this extraordinary selection of essays, distilled from nearly a thousand works that the author has written, is literally the entire universe and universe of knowledge. It charts the author's quest for the meaning of life faced with a dominant knowledge system she regards as incoherent, meaningless, and often acting against people and planet. She shows how contemporary scientific findings across all disciplines already provide an authentic knowledge system that's coherent with life and the universe. The aim is to transform science thoroughly from inspiration to research to applications that work for people and planet.This book is simply unique in its scope and content. There is no equivalent. The author surveys and explains contemporary science in depth ranging over philosophy, anthropology, quantum physics and chemistry, neurobiology, psychology, genetics and epigenetics, cosmology, art, humanities, and mathematics. It presents a truly holistic view of nature, with profound implications for life in the social, political, and personal realm.

Living Rainbow H2o (Paperback): Mae-Wan Ho Living Rainbow H2o (Paperback)
Mae-Wan Ho
R908 R858 Discovery Miles 8 580 Save R50 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is a unique synthesis of the latest findings in the quantum physics and chemistry of water that will tell you why it is so remarkably fit for life. It offers a novel panoramic perspective of cell biology based on water as "means, medium, and message" of life. This book is a sequel to The Rainbow and The Worm, The Physics of Organisms, which has remained in a class of its own for nearly 20 years since the publication of the first edition. Living Rainbow H2O continues the fascinating journey in the author's quest for the meaning of life, in science and beyond. Like The Rainbow and The Worm, the present book will appeal to readers in the arts and humanities as well as scientists; not least because the author herself is an occasional artist and poet. Great care has been taken to explain terms and concepts for the benefit of the general reader. At the same time, sufficient scientific details are provided in text boxes for the advanced reader and researcher without interrupting the main story.

Genetic Explanations - Sense and Nonsense (Hardcover): Sheldon Krimsky, Jeremy Gruber Genetic Explanations - Sense and Nonsense (Hardcover)

Can genes determine which fifty-year-old will succumb to Alzheimer's, which citizen will turn out on voting day, and which child will be marked for a life of crime? Yes, according to the Internet, a few scientific studies, and some in the biotechnology industry who should know better. Sheldon Krimsky and Jeremy Gruber gather a team of genetic experts to argue that treating genes as the holy grail of our physical being is a patently unscientific endeavor. Genetic Explanations urges us to replace our faith in genetic determinism with scientific knowledge about how DNA actually contributes to human development. The concept of the gene has been steadily revised since Watson and Crick discovered the structure of the DNA molecule in 1953. No longer viewed by scientists as the cell's fixed set of master molecules, genes and DNA are seen as a dynamic script that is ad-libbed at each stage of development. Rather than an autonomous predictor of disease, the DNA we inherit interacts continuously with the environment and functions differently as we age. What our parents hand down to us is just the beginning. Emphasizing relatively new understandings of genetic plasticity and epigenetic inheritance, the authors put into a broad developmental context the role genes are known to play in disease, behavior, evolution, and cognition. Rather than dismissing genetic reductionism out of hand, Krimsky and Gruber ask why it persists despite opposing scientific evidence, how it influences attitudes about human behavior, and how it figures in the politics of research funding.

The genetic engineering of food crops is an ecological hazard and health crisis that affects us all. Its consequences are global and potentially irrevocable. Yet the decision to use genetically modified organisms is currently being made for you by the government and major multinational corporations. To combat this practice, more than 600 scientists from 72 countries have called for a moratorium on the environmental release of GMOs. "GMO Free "is the most comprehensive resource available on the science behind this worldwide debate.

"

GMO Free "takes a good look at the evidence scientists have compiled, and makes a powerful case for a worldwide ban on GMO crops, to make way for a shift to sustainable agriculture and organic farming. It s time to take the future of your food supply and environment into your own informed hands. "GMO Free "will give you the information you need to do so. "

Mae-Wan Ho; Edited by Francesco Musumeci, Larissa S. Brizhik
R3,906 Discovery Miles 39 060 Special order

This volume contains papers based on the workshop "Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systems: How Physics Could Enrich Biological Understanding," held in Italy in 2002. The meeting was a forum aimed at evaluating the potential and outlooks of a modern physics approach to understanding and describing biological processes, especially regarding the transition from the microscopic chemical scenario to the macroscopic functional configurations of living matter. In this frame some leading researchers presented and discussed several basic topics, such as the photon interaction with biological systems also from the viewpoint of photon information processes and of possible applications; the influence of electromagnetic fields on the self-organization of biosystems including the nonlinear mechanism for energy transfer and storage; and the influence of the structure of water on the properties of biological matter.

AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) has been identified as a global pandemic and ?a threat to world security? by the Clinton administration. President George W. Bush has pledged $15 billion to combat AIDS. AIDS is perhaps the most-researched yet most-misunderstood disease in the world, about which the most mis-information is spread for political purposes. This timely and well-researched book strives to re-open the scientific debate about AIDS and to introduce fresh perspectives and unbiased evidence into the public forum. This book is going to press amid news of a major scandal that has triggered a congressional hearing. U.S. government funded researchers in top research institutions have been testing toxic AIDS drugs on 100's of the most vulnerable orphan and foster children over the past two decades, exposing the children to the risks of serious side effects.
