The Advanced Genius Theory

The Advanced Genius Theory

If a genius has done all the hard work necessary for gaining acceptance, naturally that genius would find it attractive to continue down the same path. Advancing, though, requires that the genius put aside everything that brought ...

Let the debate begin... The Advanced Genius Theory, hatched by Jason Hartley and Britt Bergman over pizza, began as a means to explain why icons such as Lou Reed, David Bowie, and Sting seem to go from artistic brilliance in their early careers to "losing it" as they grow older. The Theory proposes that they don’t actually lose it, but rather, their work simply advances beyond our comprehension. The ramifications and departures of this argument are limitless, and so are the examples worth considering, such as George Lucas’s Jar Jar Binks, Stanley Kubrick’s fascination with coffee commercials, and the last few decades of Paul McCartney’s career. With equal doses of humor and philosophy, theorist Jason Hartley examines music, literature, sports, politics, and the very meaning of taste, presenting an entirely new way to appreciate the pop culture we love . . . and sometimes think we hate. The Advanced Genius Theory is a manifesto that takes on the least understood work by the most celebrated figures of our time.

How does coding change the way we think about architecture? This question opens up an important research perspective. In this book, Miro Roman and his AI Alice_ch3n81 develop a playful scenario in which they propose coding as the new literacy of information. They convey knowledge in the form of a project model that links the fields of architecture and information through two interwoven narrative strands in an “infinite flow” of real books. Focusing on the intersection of information technology and architectural formulation, the authors create an evolving intellectual reflection on digital architecture and computer science.

You are changing jobs. Maybe you are doing this on your own, voluntarily. All too often people change jobs involuntarily. When a job change is forced on us, we often ask ourselves, “Why me?” I cannot answer this question for you. I can tell you that often it is not about you. I can also tell you why I wrote this book; because I have made many job changes, some voluntary, others not. In spite of those, I have consistently landed on my feet.

Winner—Parapsychological Association Book Award "A high-level book...sufficiently detailed to permit readers with or without previous knowledge of parapsychology to evaluate the conclusions drawn by the authors. An excellent, comprehensive scholarly-level source of information about a long-contested area of research in psychology and related disciplines."--PsycCritiques "Indispensable.--Magonia "The evidence is impressive...substantial."--The Los Angeles Review of Books "An excellent summary of the latest advances in parapsychological research that updates developments in the decades of the nineties and the last fifteen years of this century...the work has been awarded the First Prize for the best book of parapsychology."--Instituto de Psicología Paranormal Many people have experienced such unusual phenomena as dreams that later seem to correspond with unforeseeable events, thinking of a long-lost friend just before he or she unexpectedly calls, or the ability to "feel" the presence of deceased loved ones. What many do not realize is that these types of experiences have been researched for more than a century by eminent scientists, including Nobel laureates. Most of these researchers have concluded that some of these phenomena do occur, although we are far from explaining them to everyone's satisfaction. This book is the first in almost 40 years to provide a comprehensive scientific overview of research in the field of parapsychology, explaining what we know and don't know about so-called psi phenomena, such as "telepathy," "precognition" or "psychokinesis." Contributors evaluate the evidence for these phenomena, accounting for factors such as selective memory, wish fulfillment and incorrect methods or analyses, in some cases offering psychological, physical and biological theories.
