Free Will and Will to Power

What kind of shitty view is it to worship stasis, to want to be frozen forever in a single state? ... It's easy to see why it's the biggest scam in human history – it offers the greatest imaginable reward.

Are you free, or are you a machine that suffers from a delusion that it’s free? Free will is perhaps the most important subject of all because if we are authentically free, scientific materialism is ipso facto false, and the world is in urgent need of a revolutionary paradigm shift. This book shows that free will has a most unexpected advocate – mathematics. Only in a mathematical universe can we be free. Only in a mathematical universe can we have a soul. And in a mathematical universe, free will is much better understood as will to power, and to have an intimate connection with cosmic symmetry and “God”. It’s all in the math!

FROM EXCITING AUTHOR OF LGBTQ+ ROMANCE APRIL C. GRIFFITH Electra Rex, self-appointed &‘galaxy's greatest starship captain' and last known human, is going to save humanity or get rich trying! Electra Rex, the last human in known space, is broke—worse than broke, deeply in debt and out of options. After a desperate, drunken attempt to fix her faltering life, she finds herself in a deeper hole after stealing the most stylish starship she's ever seen, but it comes with a massive lien. She's left with a fast ship, a nearly indestructible debt-enforcement robot named Letterman watching her every move and a lead on a lucrative job with the mysterious organization known as Bi-MARP, which is set to rebuild Earth on the two-thousand-year anniversary of its destruction. Across two galaxies, she struggles to stay one step ahead of space pirates and creditors, all while trying to catch the eye of a beautiful, vivacious bisexual clone named Treasure, who was recently rescued from a top-secret university lab run by academic squids. She succeeds in seducing Treasure—or perhaps it's the other way around—while they run scams to find earthling relics like the original formula for Coca-Cola, a 1968 Volkswagen Beatle, a mostly complete Monopoly board game and a largely accurate, if not small and green, clone of an elephant. All the while, Electra has to hide the fact that Treasure is actually the most valuable item on the Bi-MARP list—a fertile human female. When the truth of humanity's demise and the goals of Bi-MARP are uncovered, Electra, the galaxy's foremost transgender hero, decides that the riches and fame aren't worth the sacrifices, and she turns on her former employer to rescue Treasure a third time, completing her search for money, what it means to be human without the rest of humanity and, most of all, love.

Over several years, Bertrand Denzler and Jean-Luc Guionnet have interviewed approximately 50 musicians from various backgrounds about their practice of musical improvisation. Musicians include both the very experienced such as Sophie Agnel, Burkhard Beins, John Butcher, Rhodri Davies, Bill Dixon, Phil Durrant, Axel Dörner, Annette Krebs, Daunik Lazro, Mattin, Seijiro Murayama, Andrea Neumann, Jérôme Noetinger, Evan Parker, Eddie Prévost and Taku Unami, as well as those newer to the field. Asked questions on topics such as the mental processes behind a collective improvisation, the importance of the human factor in improvisation, the strategies used and the way musical decisions are made, the interviewees highlight the habits and customs of a practice, as experienced by those who invent it on a daily basis. The interviews were carefully edited in order to produce a sort of grand discussion that draws an incomplete map of the blurred territory of contemporary improvised music.

In the year 2063, on the edge of the Crater formerly known as Montréal, a middle-aged man and his ex’s daughter search for a cult hero: the leader of a short-lived band named after a forgotten work of poetry and known to fans through a forgotten work of music criticism. In this exuberantly plotted verse novel, Guriel follows an obsessive cult-following through the twenty-first century. Some things change (there’s metamorphic smart print for music mags; the Web is called the “Zuck”). Some things don’t (poetry readings are still, mostly, terrible). But the characters, including a robot butler who stands with Ishiguro’s Stevens as one of the great literary domestics, are unforgettable. Splicing William Gibson with Roberto Bolaño, Pale Fire with Thomas Pynchon, Forgotten Work is a time-tripping work of speculative fiction. It’s a love story about fandom, an ode to music snobs, a satire on the human need to value the possible over the actual—and a verse novel of Nabokovian virtuosity.

"I think I am losing my grip on reality. This can't be happening at all. Everything is different all of a sudden. Everything, the connections, the relations, the value system, the suppositions, my theories, my entire life, my existence is dissolving right in front of my eyes. There is total confusion in my mind, my brain. So I stop thinking for the time being. My gut feeling is taking over now. Magdalena must be speaking the truth. Nobody could make that scenario up. I am desperately trying to think straight.” During a holiday trip on Sicily, a former RAF comrade runs into Cornelia, the third generation doctor (RAF vocabulary: third line), who rudely pushes him out of his placid life as a bookseller. She claims the lost RAF ground depots and conjures up his RAF past. At Lake Chiem in Bavaria, they meet other RAF people. During the opening of a depot near Aschaffenburg, things are getting out of hand and culminate in a mysterious murder. Eventually, the situation takes an unexpected turn and a gigantic plot is revealed to him.
