What are you reading?
« on: June 18, 2017, 04:16:52 pm »
Currently I am reading "Godel's Proof," which so far questions the ability to use axioms in mathematics. I've been interested in philosophy of math since becoming a Platonist, and it's a good read. I'd love more of a these books for non-mathematicians if they exist.

Recently got the MindWar "trilogy", read the first half or so of MindStar, started reading MindWar. FindFar is next.

Electrodynamic Man is one the way, which I'm pretty excited about as it is supposed to explain Dr. Burr's experiments in better detail. Am also enjoying Ancient Egyptian Materials and Industries which is amazing in it's detailed explanations, fun to browse through at least.

My brother is a mathematician, I'll ask him if he can recommend anything related to philosophy/Platonism.

He said he didn't really get into that sort of thing and couldn't recommend anything in particular.

Sourcebook of Indian Philosophy and An Idealist View of Life. Both by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. I have the latter in PDF format if anyone is interested.

I'm the same way, I'm reading like 5 books at any given time it seems. There's just no way to keep up.

Apparently Peter Levenda wrote a fact filled Lovecraft fiction called "The Lovecraft Code," so I got that. Only to chapter two but it's not bad, definitely read worse. Quite lurid, but the dude loves Kenneth Grant so I expect nothing less!

Electrodynamic Man arrived. It appears to be pretty exhaustive, full of charts and data, photos of test subjects etc. I have a feeling I won't be getting much work done today.

Quote
Briefly, this discovery is that man is an electric organization, an inseparable part of a universe of law and order. He is not - as some have supposed - the accidental consequence of the random association of molecules or of haphazard evolution.

Currently two books at once.

Mysteries of The Temple of Set by Don Webb and The Playboy Book Of Horror and the Supernatural. The latter was published in 1968 and is a collection of short stories. So far, it has some  nice little gems.

Currently reading Alchemy: An Introduction to the Symbolism and the Psychology by Marie-Louise von Franz, a very interesting (and very readable) book on Jung's work with alchemy as it applies to individuation vs. the collective consciousness.

The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are by Alan W. Watts (focuses on the Vedanta Hindu philosophy, Watts tries to translate the meaning of eastern religions to westerners)

I'm 600-some pages into A Storm of Swords, third book in the Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones book series. About 500 more pages left to go, and two more beefy books left after this one.
