The Bound

By: JM Douglas

A low-tech fantasy novel. Follows both a group of transgender idealists planning a revolution, and the guards of the government they are working to overthrow....

“Ah, the wood Bound,” Sileas said, with a nod to the painting Corliss stood in front of. She spun, startled by the noise. “I saw it once when I was much younger,” Sileas continued. “I've never seen anything so beautiful or odd again. I had it drawn from my description.” The painting was delicately done in layers of richly pigmented oils. Not a brushstroke could be seen, and it glowed from within. A figure with emerald green skin slipped its way between trees. Its eyes were wide and dark as plums, its stomach round and swollen, its arms long and thin. ...

Critical Evaluation of Rashad Khalifa with Quran-Alone : Critical Evaluation of Rashad Khalifa Based on Quran-Alone

By: Noor Hassan

When Rashad Khalifa proclaimed that he has discovered a mathematical code of Quran, which is number "19" even though most of the Islamic Scholars where awaiting to see how he is going to react next but still some very few scholars ignored the crucial command, guideline of Al-Quran given below and the evil consequences of that ignorance has been dealt in this short book: Command 1) "O Believers, if one who publicly commits sins brings you any news, Ascertain its truthfulness carefully, lest you harm people through ignorance and then regret what you have done". (49:6). Guideline 2) “He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are decisive, they are the basis of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding.” [3:7] [3:8] Our Lord! Make not our hearts to deviate ...

Comparison of the attitudes of Saamri and Khalifa can signal you a lot of similarities between them: 1) Saamri: Proclaimed that he was able to see, what the other Israelites were unable to see. Khalifa: Proclaimed that he was able to see [19], what the other Muslims were unable to see. 2) Saamri: Took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf). Thus did his soul suggested to him. Khalifa: Took a hint from the footprint (History) of the Messenger [See Khalifa's Appendix-25, where he says: The books of Hadith indicate that the Quranic initials were believed to determine the life span of the Muslim Ummah] and put the Quran-initials into a computer. Thus did his soul suggested to him. 3) Saamri: Fascinated people with the buzz-sound of the golden-calf and portrayed that like a great miracle, even-though it cannot respond to people in the form of an answer but that fascination made many people to gone astray. Khalifa: Fascinated people with the correlation of Quran-initials and portrayed that like a great miracle, even-though it cannot respond people in the form of an answer but ...

2045 : Inequity and Consequence

By: Imannuel Ishtar

Ripe with literary and current-culture allusions, this book combines elements of world history, science fiction, political science, and satire. It's at once a brutally-serious and bitingly-humorous novel that, as one early reviewer noted: "Demands a lot from the reader, is a wonderfully-wild ride, and is well worth the time and energy invested."...

Jake's Diner Saturday, July 13, 2024 Even though it was only 8:15, the intense Minnesota morning sun dumped waves of shimmering heat upon the thirsty wilted corn...unquenched by expensive center-pivot irrigation systems. A loosely-organized row of aggressive-looking pickup trucks--drearily-colored, indeterminate in age, manfully backed into position, and universally-equipped with locking tool boxes giving purpose to otherwise empty beds--had formed a defensive line on the torrid gravel in front of Jake's. By day a respectable diner and by night a bar that promised totally exotic dancing--whatever that meant, since no local dared investigate--Jake's was the social epicenter of Blue Earth...an ever-diminishing farming town that might as well have been located in Iowa for all the difference the unrelentingly-flat, hot, and wind-ravaged prairie landscape made. Although it had been decades since smoking had been banned in public places--with the exception of those wastefully-expensive new mobile home parks--the lingering smell of tobacco still clung to the tables, chairs, and walls…adding to Jake's unfinished-plywood, grease-en...

Está pensado para leer en cualquier orden. Su intención no es ninguna, salvo si acaso servir como divertimento acerca de disciplinas varias. Espero que sirva a su propósito, que no es ninguno en especial....

"Vida" Hasta que el pensamiento no se transforma en un acto, no vale nada.
