      Is it good?

      I am reading a bunch of books currently:
      Anne Frank's diary
      C++ Primer
      YDK JS Types and Grammar
      Man and his symbols by Carl Jung
      Life, the Universe and Everything by Douglas Adams
      Essentialism

      P.S. Not the best idea to start so many books at once, but it just happened this time ))

      I'm currently preparing for a Masters in Social Sciences, so most of my reading is directed toward this. Nonetheless, I do manage to squeeze in some fiction from time to time.
      I just finished a short story by David Foster Wallace titled "The Compliance Branch." It was originally published as an incomplete short story before it was re-presented as an excerpt from "The Pale King," which was published posthumously. TCB is incredibly funny and detailed. It is an account of the narrator's struggles with his manager's infant, an infant he finds terrifying and bewildering. You can read the story here: https://harpers.org/wp-content/uploa...02-0081893.pdf
      On the other hand, I'm reading a lot of introductory texts from different social studies subjects to improve my application. Right now, I'm sifting through the following Sociology titles, looking to narrow down my reading list to 3 Socio books.

      PS: I noticed this thread hadn't seen posters in a while, so I thought I'd get it going again. Hope that's alright

      I am re-reading "The Saga of Recluce". If you are interested in some reality based, real world fantasy that contains some very interesting perspectives....I highly recommend this series.

      I haven't read for a few months now but I last read Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King and want to finish off that trilogy. Haven't been able to find the second book anywhere, but perhaps I should just do the adulting and pay off my library fines as I'm sure they'd have it in there.

      "How Not to Get Shot by the Police" by D.L. Hughley. Delightfully funny and essential for non-whites in America.
      naturals are what we call people who did all the right things accidentally

      I just finished Little, Big, By John Crowley. It got a little flaky at times, but all-in-all a good read, especially for dreamers who want to believe there is "something more."

      I picked up my old copy of Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel.

      What I'm finding interesting about it this time around is how she describes the brain and skull of the members of the Clan (Neanderthal) compared to the Others (Homo Sapien) who were just making the scene.

      In her wonderful story the Neanderthal brain seems to have had no frontal lobe...so no meta-cognitive oversight (reflective consciousness) and creative stuff going on, while they had this huge back section where there were memories stored from generations. The newcomers had this strange looking forehead that housed lots of creative and spontaneous stuff....but they did not have all those generational memories.

      Nothing seriously scientific here...at least from my perspective, but it does make me wonder.........there was plenty of interbreeding back then. You could make the case that a race of lucid dreamers was spawned by those unions 30,000 years ago by combining those two brain types into one, right?

      The more I gaze....the more I crave to see

      I just finished Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon; a big, complex novel, but chock full of dream imagery...

      For my recreational reading I am deep into The Imager Portfolio, a series of 12 books by L.E. Modesitt Jr.. These are excellent fantasy stories about a group of special people who can create objects by imaging them. Very appropriate reading when I need to slip away...but not too far away....from my ADA protocols.

      “Colon - El Almirante sin rostro” - Mariano F. Urresti
      The Author questions the origins of Christopher Columbus and the oficial theory about his person. Don’t know if there’s an English version of it.
