Clifford Pickover, prodigious author on various ‘weird science’ topics, will be releasing another book later this year (I think the tally is upwards of 30 now). A Beginner’s Guide to Immortality “gives readers a glimpse of new ways of thinking and of other worlds”:
He illuminates some of the most mysterious phenomena affecting our species. What is creativity? What are the religious implications of mosquito evolution, simulated Matrix realities, the brain’s own marijuana, and the mathematics of the apocalypse? Could we be a mere software simulation living in a matrix? Who is Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and Emanuel Swedenborg? Did church forefathers eat psychedelic snails? How can we safely expand our minds to become more successful and reason beyond the limits of our own intuition? How can we become immortal?
You can find more information about the book at the link above, and can pre-order it from Amazon.com. Due to be released on my birthday too (hint, hint)….
