The Sibylline Oracles

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-sibylline-oracles-6...
From the preface: "THE Sibyls occupy a conspicuous place in the traditions and history of ancient Greece and Rome. Their fame was spread abroad long before the beginning of the Christian era. Heraclitus of Ephesus, five centuries before Christ, compared himself to the Sibyl "who, speaking with inspired mouth, without a smile, without ornament, and without perfume, penetrates through centuries by the power of the gods." The ancient traditions vary in reporting the number and the names of these weird prophetesses, and much of what has been handed down to us is legendary. But whatever opinion one may hold respecting the various legends, there can be little doubt that a collection of Sibylline Oracles was at one time preserved at Rome. There are, moreover, various oracles, purporting to have been written by ancient Sibyls, found in the writings of Pausanias, Plutarch, Livy, and in other Greek and Latin authors. Whether any of these citations formed a portion of the Sibylline books once kept in Rome we cannot now determine; but the Roman capitol was destroyed by fire in the time of Sulla ( B.C. 84), and again in the time of Vespasian ( A.D. 69), and whatever books were at those dates kept therein doubtless perished in the flames. It is said by some of the ancients that a subsequent collection of oracles was made, but, if so, there is now no certainty that any fragments of them remain.

Alex Sheridan has no memories of life before the age of 7, when he emerged from the sea on the coast of modern Greece. Scarred and scared, Alex was adopted by an American family but knew he was very different from others when he discovered that he not only had unusual powers, but he also had powerful dreams; visions that were not his own, yet were somehow a part of him. Alex is an illustrated man. The scars on his body, which he's had styled into intricate tattoos, tell an ancient story and reveal a past life that ended in sacrifice, murder, and betrayal. It is a story that belongs to another, a boy who'd died many centuries earlier in Ancient Greece at Apollo's temple at Delphi. The boy is sacrificed in the name of greed by a priest who lusts for the power of the Oracle, but he's spared by Apollo and ascends with the gods to live under their protection for fifty lifetimes before returning to fulfill his destiny.A directive given by Alex's murdered lover just before he dies, sends Alex to Greece where he begins to unravel the mysteries surrounding himself and his past - a past that may only be able to be deciphered by one man, Luke MacKinnon, an American professor who is an expert in the history and language of Ancient Greece, and a man whom Alex had met only very briefly a short time before. Luke is a self professed daydreamer whose life is "anything but normal." He is dedicated to a field of work that sometimes removes him from his own world and leads him into an ancient past that leaves him little time to connect with anyone but his students. When he's contacted by the US military to assist them in finding a powerful weapon that was prophesied to exist, Luke finds that the key to its discovery lies in decoding the mystery of "the painted man." When he discovers that he is a part of that ancient prophesy, his connection to Alex becomes an unbreakable bond that propels them both into danger.

"I don't want to merely offer you a book. Rather, I want to present you a special companion," writes Peter Müller, the renowned Hungarian author whose spiritual books have helped shape the lives of hundreds of thousands of dedicated readers in Hungary. The Oracle has become a Bible of sorts for millions of people, and one of the greatest bestsellers in the book market for many years. According to experts, this writing remains one of the most meaningful examples of the modern I Ching literature. The author studied the Chinese I Ching for twenty years. This is the only book in the world with which you can converse: you can ask questions of it, and it will reply to you as a living sage. According to ancient I Ching tradition, invisible Holy Spirits stand behind the book and help those turning to them with problems of their fate. Peter Müller himself has a constant relationship with such a spiritual guide who helped him write this book and translate the old symbols to our contemporary, everyday life. The I Ching has been an advisor in the East for thousands of years. Its popularity increased in the West due to the influence of C.G. Jung who used the text for fate analysis and therapy. There is hardly a bookshelf in the country that does not include this vital work, and more and more people are turning to it for advice. This book does not predict the future, but it divines. It tells us how we can shape our own fate and helps us deal with all problems, big and small, which occur in our lives. It helps us to simply live

Oracle

When Mallory Timmerman returns to her hometown of Haven for her Aunt Cassandra's funeral, she didn't expect to face so much controversy and malevolence in the small town. Cassie's closest friends refuse to believe she died from a fall. They're convinced she was murdered and they know who did it! Cassie was close to discovering who was responsible for the death of Jessica Archer. The police said it was suicide, but Cass knew that was impossible. Jessica would never leave her daughter. One of the members of the fiber guild contacts the coroner. Cassie knew someone was responsible for Blake Doucette's disappearance. The police said he left his wife and two sons, but Cassie and Blake's grandmother believed that was laziness on the part of the Haven police. As Mallory is settling her aunt's affairs and cleaning out her house, she found a box of journals under Cassie's bed, along with a note from Cass urging her to read them and share them with Karl and Temple, the couple next door. Reluctantly, Mallory reads the journals. She learns about a pastor who is waging war on Haven's library, a corrupt real estate developer who is scamming elderly widows, and a bully with whom she attended high school is now the chief of police. She reads about Cassie's "special project" and wonders what it is. Mallory is amazed to find a computer on an antique desk in the basement. When she sees the padlock on one of the drawers, she's certain the special project is hidden there. She shares the journals with Karl and Temple and they discuss the activities and insights of Mallory's 79 year old aunt. They see the logic behind Cassies' friends' insistence that she was murdered and wonder how they can prove it. One journal entry is especially perplexing: who are Aryx and Zooric?

Nature's Oracle

W.D.Hamilton (1936-2000) was responsible for a revolution in thinking about evolutionary biology - a revolution that changed our understanding of life itself. He played a central role in the realization that what matters in evolution is not the survival of the individual but of the survival of its genes. This provided the solution to the long standing problem of animal altruism that vexed even Darwin himself, and in due course resulted in terms like selfish genes, kin selection, and sociobiology becoming familiar to a wider public. Hamilton went on to solve many more major problems, and open up ever new fields - he shaped much of our current understanding of central problems including the evolution of sexual reproduction and ageing. He became world famous and garnered international prizes. But this is all in hindsight. In fact, Hamilton's recognition came late - his career is a classic case of misunderstood genius. In this illuminating and moving biography Ullica Segerstrale documents Hamilton's extraordinary life and work, revealing a man of immense intellectual curiosity, an uncompromising truth-seeker, a naturalist and jungle explorer, a risk-taker, an unconventional scientist with a poet's soul and a deep concern for life on earth and mankind's future.

Why Prediction Markets Are Good for BusinessFrom selecting the lead actress in a Broadway musical, to predicting a crucial delay in the delivery of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner months before the CEO knew about it, to accurately forecasting US presidential elections-prediction markets have realized some amazing successes by aggregating the wisdom of crowds. Until now, the potential for this unique approach has remained merely an interesting curiosity. But a handful of innovative organizations-GE, Google, Motorola, Microsoft, Eli Lily, even the CIA-has successfully tapped employee insights to change how business gets done. In Oracles, Don Thompson explains how these and other firms use prediction markets to make better decisions, describing what could be the origins of a social revolution. Thompson shows how prediction markets can: draw on the hidden knowledge of every employee tap the intellectual bandwidth" of retired employees replace surveys substitute for endless meetingsBy showing successes and failures of real organizations, and identifying the common roadblocks they've overcome, Oracles offers a guide to begin testing expertise against the collective wisdom of employees and the market-all to the benefit of their bottom line.

Josephine Bissou was the last of the Fragments. She came from a long line of powerful witches, but she was also an Oracle. With the vision for what was to come, she knew what it was going to take in order to win the war against the Darkness; she also knew the price. There was no future for her, she had seen it. Knowing that the women she had welcomed as sisters were happy, would be enough. She hadn't counted on Cian. His determination that they were going to win, planted the seed of hope in her heart. His magick lay in what came before; in the past of those he hunted, those he fought alongside of, and the woman he was destined to love. That the woman connected to him was just as stubborn as the women his comrades had fallen for, was of no great surprise. Josephine was convinced her life was the price to be paid in order to defeat the Darkness. He was just as convinced that they would find another way. Agrona's warriors had found the ones connected to them. Now, they must join their magick with the power of the Star to defeat the master of the Darkness. Victory is the only outcome; for failure would mean the end of all worlds.
