Life is an enduring mystery. Yet, science tells us that living beings are merely sophisticated structures of lifeless molecules. If this view is correct, where do the seemingly purposeful motions of cells and organisms originate? In Life's Ratchet, physicist Peter M. Hoffmann locates the answer to this age-old question at the nanoscale. Below the calm, ordered exterior of a living organism lies microscopic chaos, or what Hoffmann calls the molecular storm--specialized molecules immersed in a whirlwind of colliding water molecules. Our cells are filled with molecular machines, which, like tiny ratchets, transform random motion into ordered activity, and create the "purpose" that is the hallmark of life. Tiny electrical motors turn electrical voltage into motion, nanoscale factories custom-build other molecular machines, and mechanical machines twist, untwist, separate and package strands of DNA. The cell is like a city--an unfathomable, complex collection of molecular workers working together to create something greater than themselves. Life, Hoffman argues, emerges from the random motions of atoms filtered through these sophisticated structures of our evolved machinery. We are agglomerations of interacting nanoscale machines more amazing than anything in science fiction. Rather than relying on some mysterious "life force" to drive them--as people believed for centuries--life's ratchets harness instead the second law of thermodynamics and the disorder of the molecular storm. Grounded in Hoffmann's own cutting-edge research, Life's Ratchet reveals the incredible findings of modern nanotechnology to tell the story of how the noisy world of atoms gives rise to life itself.

Suddenly, the ground disappears beneath her. Waking up at the bottom of a deep pit, she sees an emergency rescue team above her. The people looking down see something far stranger..."We always look forward. We never look back."That girl grows up to be Dr. Rose Franklyn, a brilliant scientist and the leading world expert on what she discovered. An enormous, ornate hand made of an exceptionally rare metal, which predates all human civilisation on the continent. "But this thing ...it"s different. It challenges us. It rewrites history."An object whose origins and purpose are perhaps the greatest mystery humanity has ever faced. Solving the secret of where it came from - and how many more parts may be out there - could change life as we know it.

Adrian Savage Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Adrian Savage: A Novel I will ask my readers kindly to understand that this book is altogether a work of fiction. The characters it portrays, their circumstances and the episodes in which they play a part, are my own invention. Every sincere and scientific student of human nature and the social scene must, of necessity, depend upon direct observation of life for his general types - the said types being the composite photographs with which study and observation have supplied him. But, for the shaping of individual characters out of the said types, he should, in my opinion, rely exclusively upon his imagination and his sense of dramatic coherence. Exactly in proportion as he does this can he claim to be a true artist. Since the novel, to be a work of art, must be impersonal, neither autobiographical nor biographical. - I am not, of course, speaking of the historical novel, whether the history involved be ancient or contemporary, nor am I speaking of an admitted satire. I wish further to assure my readers that the names of my characters have been selected at random; and belong, certainly in sequence of Christian and surname, to no persons with whom I am, or ever have been, acquainted. I may also add that although I have often visited Stourmouth and its neighborhood - of which I am very fond - my knowledge of the social life of the district is of the smallest, while my knowledge of its municipal and commercial life is nil. Finally, the lamented disappearance of La Gioconda, from the Salon Carré of the Louvre, took place when the whole of my manuscript was already in the hands of the printers. May I express a pious hope that this most seductive of women will be safely restored to her former dwelling-place before any copies of my novel are in the hands of the public?

Things I Don't Want to Know HAMISH HAMILTON

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Things I Don't Want to Know is Deborah Levy's sparkling response to Orwell's Why I Write. 'Things I Don't Want to Know' is a unique response to George Orwell from one of our most vital contemporary writers. Taking Orwell's famous list of motives for writing as the jumping-off point for a sequence of thrilling reflections on the writing life, this is a perfect companion not just to Orwell's essay, but also to Levy's own, essential oeuvre. "In her powerful rejoinder to Orwell, Deborah Levy responds to his proposed motives for writing - 'sheer egoism', 'aesthetic enthusiasm', 'historical impulse' and 'political purpose' - with illuminating moments of autobiography. A vivid, striking account of a writer's life, which feminises and personalises Orwell's blunt assertions". (Spectator). "An up-to-date version of 'A Room of One's Own'...I suspect it will be quoted for many years to come". (Irish Examiner). "Levy's strength is her originality of thought and expression". (Jeanette Winterson). Deborah Levy writes fiction, plays and poetry. Her work has been staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and she is the author of numerous highly praised books including The Unloved, Swallowing Geography and Beautiful Mutants, all of which are now published by Penguin. Her novel Swimming Home was shortlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize, 2012 Specsavers National Book Awards and 2013 Jewish Quarterly Wingate Prize.

Sage of Time and Chance Resource Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Sage of Time and Chance is a work of fiction based on Ecclesiastes, the most skeptical book in the Bible. Ecclesiastes was written by a Hebrew sage called Koheleth who had the courage to wonder whether human beings were different from animals, and why the mind was limited in its ability to comprehend life. In The Sage of Time and Chance, Koheleth summons translators from all the corners of the Earth to review his provocative manuscript before he dies. The story is set in Jerusalem in the third century BCE, a peaceful period rich in cultural exchange and scholarship. Among the translators who come to the council are a monk from India, a Scythian warrior, and a shaman. Bitter rivalries and misunderstandings make reaching consensus difficult and dangerous. So also does the presence of actual translators of Ecclesiastes from the future, including Jerome (Latin) and Saadia ben Yosef (Arabic). The most unusual translator is a silent child who understands more than all the others what it means to be human--the essential question that drives Koheleth. Led by the child, Koheleth navigates around the pitfalls of cynicism and finds his way back to joy. ""The curious mixture of world-weariness, sharp advice and love, yes love, for the real world has drawn people to Koheleth. Housley builds for us an intriguing back story--a symposium in the sage's house in Israel, a place where people from all corners of the world assemble, argue, listen to shades, and even a computer that speaks across time. We feel this wise son of David's doubts, as he agonizes over every word in his scroll. And his peace too, as 'the silver cord snaps,' as his life moves to its end. To make Koheleth come so to life, in his time, in our time, is Kathleen Housley's great achievement in this wonderful book."" --Roald Hoffmann, Professor of Chemistry, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY ""Kathleen Housley's new book is an engaging meditation on the poetic process of selecting words that carry us beyond the utilitarian and linear. Informed but not overwhelmed by a scholarly understanding of the Bible, the book invites the reader to enjoy the delights found in the time-bending play and translation of words as experienced by the characters who comprise the symposium at the heart of the book."" --Frank G. Kirkpatrick, Professor of Religion, Trinity College, Hartford, CT Kathleen L. Housley is the author of nine books. Her poems and essays on science and religion have appeared in many national publications, including Image, The Christian Century, NOVA (MIT Press), Isotope, Ars Medica, Bio Logos (online), and Metanexus (online). She holds degrees in English and interdisciplinary studies from Upsala College and Wesleyan University.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky was born in Southern Russia, at Ekaterinoslav, on August 12th, 1831. Possessed of psychic powers from an early age, she later under-went esoteric training in both India and Tibet, and publicised the knowledge she had gained in such famous works as 'Isis Unveiled' and 'Secret Doctrine'. Less well known is Blavatsky's talent as a writer of occult fiction. In 'Nightmare Tales' she leads the reader into a bizarre maze of beguiling and sometimes gruesome stories, from 'The Cave of the Echoes' and 'The Luminous Shield' to 'The Ensouled Violin', based upon the rumour that renowned composer Paganini had sold his soul to the devil in return for his astonishing musical talent. But fascinating as these stories are, they have a deeper, more important purpose than simple entertainment. Strewn like pearls through each tale are keys to hidden truths, expositions of esoteric principles that derive from the Ancient Wisdom. A must-read for all interested in the hidden aspects of Life.
