Did you know that trees can influence the rotation of the earth? That wolves can alter the course of a river? Or that earthworms control wild boar populations? The natural world is a web of intricate connections, many of which go unnoticed by humans. But it is these connections that maintain nature's finely balanced equilibrium.

Sex, love, and the end of the world. 1000 years after Earth has been devastated by a viral plague, the few survivors turn to genetic engineering and advanced robotics to ensure the future of the human race. But not everyone is happy with artificial life living amongst humans, least of all Peyton Chase, a doctor with a harrowing past. When he's 'gifted' a state-of-the-art companion that he can't send back, Peyton is far from pleased. She's sentient. She's sexy. She's everything he doesn't want complicating his life. He calls her Hell. She calls him a lot of inappropriate things, at least in her mind. Because there are rules to a relationship like theirs. Master and Slave. She's supposed to obey him in all things. But if that's true, why can't she stop meddling in his life? She's a mystery that Peyton needs to solve. But time is running out for Hell. The deadly truth of her origins is about to catch up with her ...and change the course of human civilization forever.

Wisdom of the Earth Speaks The Truth about Medicinal Aromatherapy Excerpt :

Barry B. Kapp has written a philosophical overview of the importance of the Tree and Plant Kingdom in our lives and how to use Medicinal Aromatherapy for addressing all conditions within us spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Barry feels and knows that the Tree and Plants operate on a paradigm of Divine Love at all times. He feels that Medicinal Aromatherapy wrestles constantly between the Divine Love and Fear paradigms. He states that Medicinal Aromatherapy ran parallel down through history with Herbalogy. Herbalogy seemingly was always in view for all to see, but True Medicinal Aromatherapy was in the background found in Mystery School Teachings. He firmly knows that the Essences of Trees and Plants are the original medicine of the Mother and is the most powerful medicine when pure. This Book addresses 12 major points on "Truths" that lie on every level of Human Existence in relationship to Earth Mother via the Tree and Plant Kingdom. There are two additional sections. One on "Frequently Asked Questions," that have been asked of him over the years. The other section contains over 30 "Medicinal Angel Essences," descriptions and Tree and Plant channelings. This Book is unlike any Aromatherapy Book you will read as it contains some hard truths about our relationship to ourselves and the natural world in which we live. This book has the ability to make you cry, get angry, laugh, and experience joy. For those looking for the deeper answers about our relationship with Mother Earth via Medicinal Aromatherapy, this book will not only blow you away, it will blow truth into your heart of hearts.

The Hidden Life of Trees Excerpt :

In The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben shares his deep love of woods and forests and explains the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in the woodland and the amazing scientific mechanisms behind these wonders, of which we are blissfully unaware. Much like human families, tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, and support them as they grow, sharing nutrients with those who are sick or struggling and creating an ecosystem that mitigates the impact of extremes of heat and cold for the whole group. As a result of such interactions, trees in a family or community are protected and can live to be very old. In contrast, solitary trees, like street kids, have a tough time of it and in most cases die much earlier than those in a group. Drawing on groundbreaking new discoveries, Wohlleben presents the science behind the secret and previously unknown life of trees and their communication abilities; he describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in the forest around him. As he says, a happy forest is a healthy forest, and he believes that eco-friendly practices not only are economically sustainable but also benefit the health of our planet and the mental and physical health of all who live on Earth.

The Course of Nature Excerpt :

Humanity is a part of Nature, yet every thinking person at one time or another asks herself or himself, "How did we get here? What makes me different from the rest of Nature?" In The Course of Nature an artist and a scientist ask those questions with full respect for all contexts, both scientific and not. Amy Pollack's figures stand on their own as elegant summaries of one or another aspect of Nature and our place in it. Robert Pollack's one-page essays for each illustration lay out the underlying scientific issues along with the overarching moral context for these issues. Together the authors have created a door into Nature for the non-scientist, and a door into the separate question of what is right, for both the scientist and the rest of us.
