​Written in the dark days of World War I, join Lord Dunsany as he spreads the dreams that we cannot leave to die.

Dunsany was the most influential writer in the genre that came to be known as fantasy, which his stories set trends for that continue to this day.

Come along, for a dream of a mystical London, bawdy jokes that offend ghosts, swapping sins in Paris, and the strange tale of Why The Milkman Shudders As He Perceives The Dawn.

In this collection of twenty stories, you’ll find adventures at sea and the edge of the world, of Ali Baba come to the industrial hills of the Black Country, and take flight with strange run and gnome-brewed wines.

Dunsany was an influence on Tolkien, Lovecraft, Gaiman, Borges, Clarke, Moorcock, Yeats, Le Guin and many more besides. Worlds of monsters and magic, of strange names and stranger tales, were all born in Dunsany’s work.

In the middle ages, Christianity shared much with Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies. Read on to learn how Christian mystics came to the same conclusions as those from very different faiths. This edition has been adapted from the 1923 version into modern English to make the ideas more accessible to today’s reader, the Cloud of Unknowing distills a complex mystical epistemology and discipline into engagingly readable prose.

The Cloud of Unknowing is a work of Christian mysticism written in Middle English in the latter half of the 14th century. It is a spiritual guide, which focuses on using contemplative prayer to know God by abandoning consideration of God’s particular activities and attributes, and having the courage to surrender your mind and ego to the realm of “unknowing”, at which point one may begin to glimpse the nature of God.

The book counsels the young student to seek God, not through knowledge and intellect, but through intense contemplation, motivated by love, and stripped of all thought. This is brought about by putting all thoughts and desires under a “cloud of forgetting,” and thereby piercing God’s cloud of unknowing with a “dart of longing love” from the heart.

For over two thousand years, this books has been the foundation of Chinese family life.

Based on a series of conversations with Confucius, and supplemented by a series of story examples by an Emperor in the 11th Century, it is essential to understanding the nature and order of Chinese society. It speaks of how one should behave towards a senior such as one’s parents, elder brother or ruler, and the obligations that follow in the opposite direction. Written in 400BC, the Xiaojang is legendarily a dialogue between Confucius and Zeng Zi, a disciple who was well known for his filial piety.

Since that time, it has been an essential tool of Chinese civilisation, often being the first book that Chinese children are given when they are able to read it. For Confucius and his disciples, family life is the foundation and cornerstone of society, and recognising the value and impact of family harmony on both the local and greater environments is crucial to stability and prosperity.

The Sayings of Lao-Tzu

An accessible narrative prose translation of the Dao De Jing

A prose translation of the Tao that focuses on bringing out the subtlety and depth of the classic Way.

Most translations of the famous Way and Virtue (Dao De Jing/Tao Te Ching) focus on the poetics and depth of the original. In contrast, Giles’ translation focuses on telling stories with the text, drawing out the nuances in a way that is more familiar to Western audiences from philosophical and religious texts.

“Few can help being struck by the similarity of tone between the sayings of Lao Tzu and the Gospel enunciated six centuries later by the Prince of Peace. There are two famous utterances in particular which secure to Lao Tzu the glory of having anticipated the lofty morality of the Sermon on the Mount. The cavilers who would rank the Golden Rule of Confucius below that of Christ will find it hard to get over the fact that Lao Tzu said, “Requite injury with kindness,” and “To the not-good I would be good in order to make them good.” It was a hundred and fifty years later that Plato reached the same conclusion in the first book of the Republic.

It is interesting to observe certain points of contact between Lao Tzu and the early Greek philosophers. He may be compared both with Parmenides, who disparaged sense-knowledge and taught the existence of the One as opposed to the Many, and with Heraclitus, whose theory of the identity of contraries recalls some of our Sage’s paradoxes. But it is when we come to Plato that the most striking parallels occur. It has not escaped notice that something like the Platonic doctrine of ideas is discoverable in the “forms” which Lao Tzu conceives as residing in Tao. But, so far as I know, no one has yet pointed out what a close likeness Tao itself bears to that curious abstraction which Plato calls the Idea of the Good.”

Book Includes images of Wang Bi’s classic commentary to the Dao.

Intuitions

Philosophical journeys into faith, intuition, error and postmodernism

Contained in this book are ruminations on philosophy form the most basic (what is the value of religious intuition, or intuition in general?) to the most subtle and difficult (how does the constant and inevitable erroring translation affect our processes?). Many of the ideas deal with problems of mind, and of how we can think without the chilling effect of hard logic, while retaining the valuable effects of our deeper selves.

There’s also a range of content which focuses on Postmodernism. First, there’s a set of articles on the philosophy of postmodernism – ways of using the approach that it suggests to unpick or sophisticate other thoughts. Secondly, there’s a series of case studies of specifically postmodern artefacts, from buildings and albums to films and literature.
Explorations in using philosophy to navigate the real world problems of mind, learning, making mistakes, and the minefield of abstraction that is postmodernism.
There are a few questions that have always kept me wondering. This book is my attempt to answer or at least understand some of them, including:
What is the value in being wrong?
What is intuition?
How can development of the mind and soul be improved in practical ways?
What is postmodernism, and what actual impact does it have? How can we use it to rethink the world?
What is religion, and why is it useful?

Jay Walther is an Engineer by training and has been working as a Software Engineer for the last 26 years.  As he moves toward retirement, he didn’t want to just sit. He has always been productive and wishes to continue that way as he move into this new phase of life.

    He is relatively new to the business of Voice Over but it has always been a passion for him.  He loves to read out loud to his children and grandchildren making up voices on the fly, so moving into Voice Over seemed to be a natural fit.  

    Through association and learning Jay is working to be present in every moment of his life and to share this knowledge with everyone around him.  Podcasting seemed to be a natural fit for learning and sharing this new found freedom with others.

    Jay lives in Salt Lake City Utah with his wife in the house where he grew up.  The beautiful Wasatch mountains serve as a backdrop to his everyday life and a great escape into nature being only 5 minutes from his home.  He loves to spend time with friends and family in this wonderful landscape we call life.
