Notes from the Aboveground provocatively argues that competition for power leads totalitarian man inexorably toward a libertarian order. The relationships examined between human nature, power and ideology are a synthesis of Hobbes, Mandeville, and Nietzsche, but the conclusions drawn depart from them and are startlingly original.

The feature of man that premises Notes from the Aboveground is egocentrism. Defining the ego as a need for social recognition, selfishness takes the form of both success and charity, dynamically creating the nexus of civilization.

While aggressively challenging man’s opinion of himself, Notes from the Aboveground suggests that civil institutions are not the product of enlightened thought, but of appeasement to rising power.

Societies are the result of the balance of power, and as human competition intensifies, power is won by increasing portions of it, the unplanned wisdom being that it is limited to the preservation of order, and with it the species.

This is a true story of a journey and a miracle. On December 6, 2005, in the offices of two separate medical experts, I was informed that my days were numbered. I was advised to take more medicines, and get admitted into the emergency room. If not, there was little the doctors could do. By then, I was already on numerous medicines for countless years. I knew that my body and stomach would not permit the intake of any more medication. All my life, I had lived my way. So, I signed a liability release form and decided to die my way. I surrendered to HIM. On January 7, 2006, I was down to just one medicine. I was on my way to full recovery.

It is a fun, happy, and romantic story that is culturally educational, medically astonishing, spiritually uplifting, and studded with travel experiences.

The journey was long and arduous, but never dull. It was scenic, adventurous, thrilling, and fulfilling. It took me through two masters degrees, two marriages, two children, two 10+ year long divorces, a few acquaintances, several friends, some companions, a career, several hobbies, the 7 continents, 5 oceans, 4 rivers, several islands, many debilitating illnesses, several awakenings, noteworthy self realization and a miraculous recovery. Most importantly, it helped me find answers to two very important questions. Is happiness a medicine? Is there one medicine whose purpose is to eliminate the need for all other medicines? The answers to both of which are a resounding – Yes.

Perhaps, that is why I got nicknamed AN – Amazing Nupur.

Modern Philosophical Dialogues: Reclaiming the Tradition, is a philosophical dialogue between a man immersed in modern/postmodern thought and culture named Joe, and a Christian woman named April who is immersed in the Western tradition. Together they discuss philosophical issues relevant to every person including beauty, government, art, morality, virtue, friendship, love, commitment, God, and many other topics. The purpose of these dialogues is to provoke interest in philosophy, stimulate intellectual discussion, and promote authentic moral living in the reader. Modern philosophy has strayed from the dialogue approach in favor of an academic model. This book wishes to reclaim the ancient spirit found in Plato and applies the search for wisdom in our modern day for “the average person”.

Ever wondered how the Gospel of Jesus (which is all about peace, love and understanding) could somehow be twisted into ideologies of war, hate and absurdity? Ever wondered why many so-called ‘Christians’ do not follow the Way of Jesus?

Here, see if this helps.
