The superficial philosophy that believes that the electron lacks content and thus structure, and thus is punctual, has its roots that can be traced back hundred years, as the author sees it. Then founded the positivist philosophy we find in today's physics and other natural sciences. The contents will be destroyed in Heisenberg's and Bohr's philosophy, the so called Copenhagen interpretation where the statistical data and mathematical formulas is all we can lean on. A philosophy Albert Einstein stubbornly criticized his entire life, as we know. Only fuzzy statistics that God plays dice, he meant. This is often the content of any criticism of the Copenhagen interpretation, and it was his. The belief that quantum mechanics is the final truth is a major obstacle to scientific development. Therefore Einstein could not convince Bohr and others with his criticism. There were also some important puzzles missing for this at this time. More sophisticated instruments were required than were available 80-90 years ago. Therefore, it took a long time in the 1980s before an advanced chaos theory could be established. But the established truth about the perfect quantum mechanics prevented an integration with new discoveries and theories. Thus, one has not realized that nature was and is organized not only in the mechanical way that quantum mechanics and wave mechanics and so on assume. What chaos theory using fast computers so graphically and vividly could show. It is thus no coincidence that physics deals with punctual mechanical objects, but is a consequence of a world view, an ideology. In fact, there is nothing in this world that does not have a structure. Retired chemistry engineer, amateur scientist and cosmologist.

When Lisa Najeeb Halaby was 26, her father introduced her to King Hussein of Jordan. Within a year, she became his fourth wife. Born in 1951 to a distinguished Arab-American family, Lisa was unsure what her role would be. King Hussein was not only the head of state in Jordan but also considered the spiritual leader of all Muslims. This memoir provides a vital perspective on 30 years of turbulent world history from the Arab point of view: the displacement of over one million Palestinians by the creation of Israel, Hussein´s frustrating efforts for peace, and the impact of Saddam Hussein and the Gulf War on Jordan and the royal family. A fascinating and dramatic portrait of a woman who took a great risk in a part of the world where women´s roles are narrowly defined. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Suzanne Toren.

In the heart of London?s Bloomsbury, Gwendolen ? not yet truly famous as the writer ?Jean Rhys? ? is presented with the opportunity she has been waiting for. Her husband has received an unexpected inheritance; she can, at last, return to the island of her childhood. For Gwendolen, Dominica is a place of freedom and beauty, far away from the lonely nights and failed dreams of England. But this visit home compels her to reflect on the events of her past, and on what they may mean for her future.
Christians are supposed to be ´´the light of the world.” Yet we seem to spend most of our time stumbling in the dark. We want answers carved in stone, and instead we get uncertainty. We want a clearly marked path and a panoramic view of the future, and God gives us only fleeting glimpses of what lies ahead—and just enough light to take the next step. So what do we do? We take the next step. In her much anticipated follow-up to Looking for God, Nancy Ortberg takes readers on a journey that began thousands of years ago. From an ancient cave in Turkey to the California coast, Nancy highlights the often unexpected, sometimes imperceptible, yet always extraordinary means God uses to light our way - sometimes through even the most painful and challenging moments in life. 1.
