Re: The Lucifer Bug: The Road to Clachtoll Maurice Goldsmith

Hi Strongbow
I'm "testing the market" with the kindle version for now, but a few people have asked for a paperback so I'll certainly have to keep it in mind. Many thanks for offering to post a review!

Re: The Lucifer Bug: The Road to Clachtoll Maurice Goldsmith

Hi Strongbow Thanks for ordering it - this is my first attempt at writing a novel and at self-publishing, so I'm interested to hear what you think! (th) - thanks for your movie suggestion - it would be an interesting project, and you're quite right, Scottish scenery is stunning! I'm building up a co...

Cotton spinning and weaving

A wonderful collection of cotton spinning and weaving machinery from before and during the industrial revolution is exhibited at the Quarry Bank Mill near Styal in Cheshire, UK. With the idea of preserving knowledge in mind I tried to get as many photos of the mechanical details as I could. This is ...

Re: 20150724 New Book Post Capitalism

A colleague sent me that link - it's full of significant ideas. I was interested to read how Karl Marx was so far ahead of his time. Another paragraph that struck me, given the economic problems we're having here in Europe, is: Even now many people fail to grasp the true meaning of the word “austeri...

Manchester Post-Apocalyptic Book Club

For those anywhere near Manchester, England, there's a post-apocalyptic book club that meets most Tuesdays - they advertise on the "Meetup" website. I have only just discovered it and hope to get along soon.

Re: Greetings from England

Hi Hans Thanks for your response - I agree, both that it's been quiet in terms of responses, and that it's an important subject that would be good to discuss more. I've been having discussions with another member, tahanson43206, and he would like to increase the traffic too. One thing I noticed is t...

Consciousness

For me the pinnacle of human achievement would be to understand how consciousness works, and this is what I would like to see preserved if possible. We're not there yet, but the progress since 2000 has been so rapid that I believe we should achieve it in the next few decades. The problem I see is th...

The quantum field

I like the idea that all knowledge is preserved in the quantum field, if only we knew how to access it. It's been referred to as the akashic field (see Ervin Laszlo) and the Dirac sea. The technique of accessing this knowledge seems to be based on meditation, but precisely how it's done isn't clear ...

Greetings from England

Hi, I'm Maurice and I've taken a stab at writing my first post-apocalyptic novel - it's called the Lucifer Bug and so far is only available on Kindle. I came across this site because I was researching the question of whether civilisation could recover to the same level after a global catastrophe, an...
