A RETELLING, in instalments, of the ancient Irish myth of the heroic Mael Duin, and his voyage around many strange and fantastic islands, populated by equally strange and fantastic creatures. This project is a collaboration between the mythic past of humanity, and artificial intelligence. The text has been prepared by real humans, and the illustrations are by the A.I. image creator MidJourney. The series – which will take at least 40 episodes – will be released here in sequence, and then published as a book. See the collection so far here.

  • 9. The Island of the Birds
    IN THE EARLY HOURS of the fourth day after they had fled the island of the ants, they again heard the murmur of waves on a distant beach. As the day dawned, they saw a large island, with high terraces all around it, rising one behind another. On the terraces grew rows of tall trees, on which were perched great numbers of large brightly-coloured birds. The crew were about to cast lots to decide who should visit the island and see whether the birds were dangerous, but Máel Dúin himself decided to go. He went with a few companions, and they explored the island cautiously, remembering the ants, but they found nothing to hurt or alarm them. So they trapped many of the birds, and brought them to their ship for food. […]
  • 8. The Island of the Ants
    THEY DRIFTED AIMLESSLY for three days and nights, with no sign of land. But early on the morning of the third day, before the sun had risen, they could hear a sound from the northeast. “It is the voice of waves against the shore,” said Máel Dúin. When the sun rose and the day brightened, they rowed towards the noise and soon seeing an island, approached the shore. Lots were cast among the crew to decide which of them should explore the strange land; but even as they were making ready to leave the boat, a great swarm of ants appeared, and every ant seemed the size of a horse.

  • IlluminatiIlluminati
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    In 1967, Myron Fagan released a three-LP set titled "Illuminati". This recording has been transcribed and used as the basis for this edition, published in 2017 by A Distant Mirror in paperback, Kindle and epub formats.

    Myron Fagan describes how the Illuminati became the instrument of the Rothschilds to achieve a One World Government, and how every war during the past two centuries was instigated by this group.

    This is an historical text with names, dates, organization and, mode of operations, exposing the octopus gripping the world. Fagan exposes the Rothschilds' involvement, Zionism, Luciferian ideology, the destruction of national sovereignty and religions, Freemasonry, the Illuminist media and banksters, and the plan for three World Wars.

  • Response in the Living and Non-LivingResponse in the Living and Non-Living
    Paperback, Kindle, epub
    This is one of the great Indian scientist's earlier works. His experiments showed that in the entire range of responses—regardless of whether the subject is metallic, plant or animal—the responses are identical. The living response, in all its diverse modifications, is a repetition of the responses seen in the inorganic.

    Further, the nature of the response is determined not by the play of an unknowable and arbitrary vital force, but by laws that do not change, and act equally and uniformly throughout both organic and inorganic matter.

    This realization was always at the core of his work. He sought to show that all materials react to their environments according to the same laws; in other words, everything exists in the same field of consciousness.

  • Bechamp or Pasteur?Bechamp or Pasteur?
    Paperback, Kindle, Epub.

    Two books in one. Pasteur's theft and distortion of Antoine Bechamp's work is exposed in detail, and thoroughly documented.

    "An amazing alternative interpretation of biochemical history. A compelling account of Pasteur's plagiarism and a strong reminder of the powers at work in the pharmaceutical and regulatory industry."
    "We have been so ingrained for our entire lives to think and live in a certain way... It is challenging to begin this epic saga of removing the veil of lies, opening your thought patterns to something outside of our normal belief patterns, and look at the evidence subjectively. There is so much to take in ... I am on my third read and it is like reading it for the first time."
  • The Blood and its Third ElementThe Blood and its Third Element
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    His last work, this is the only book by Bechamp currently available in English.

    "What Dr. Béchamp is describing is a foundational concept. According to his experiments and observations, these tiny particles he named "microzymas" have an active role in sustaining and also in terminating life.

    Béchamp searched for and found the same particles and activity even in limestone, from the ancient shelled creatures whose bodies were incorporated into the stone. They still retained their activity. As the organizing life-principle of a complex body ceases to operate - as it dies - the microzymas take up their role of breaking it down and returning its elements to nature to be taken up by other life forms."

  • An Agricultural TestamentAn Agricultural Testament

    "Howard's discoveries and methods, and their implications, are given in detail in An Agricultural Testament. They are of enormous usefulness to gardeners and farmers, and to anyone who may be interested in the history and the problems of land use.

    But aside from its practical worth, Howard's book is valuable for his ability to place his facts and insights within the perspective of history. This book is a critique of civilizations, judging them not by their artefacts and victories, but by their response to the sacred duty of handing over to the next generation, unimpaired, the heritage of a fertile soil." - Wendell Berry, The Last Whole Earth Catalog

  • The Soil and HealthThe Soil and Health
    Paperback, Kindle, Epub.

    A new edition of an important work by Albert Howard, one of the leading figures of the British organics movement.

    This is a detailed analysis of the vital role of humus and compost in soil health — and the importance of soil health to the health of crops and the humans who eat them. The author is keenly aware of the dead end which awaits humanity if we insist on growing our food using artificial fertilisers and poisons.

    "Agriculture is the fundamental industry of the world and must be allowed to occupy the primary position in the economies of all countries." - Albert Howard
  • The Soul of the Ape & My Friends the BaboonsThe Soul of the Ape & My Friends the Baboons
    Paperback, Kindle.

    Includes the two works by Eugene Marais written after his period spent living among a troop of baboons in the South African veldt.

    Firstly, there was a series of articles written in Afrikaans for the newspaper Die Vaderland. They were then published in book form under the title Burgers van die Berge, and were first published in an English translation in 1939 under the title My Friends the Baboons. These pieces were written in a popular vein suitable to a newspaper readership, and were not regarded seriously by Marais himself. They are a journal; a series of anecdotes and impressions.

    The Soul of the Ape, which Marais wrote in beautifully clear and precise English, was the more serious scientific document; however after his death in 1936, it could not be found. It was lost for 32 years, and was recovered in 1968, and published the following year.

    The excellent introduction by Robert Ardrey that is included in this volume was part of the 1969 and subsequent editions of The Soul of the Ape, and adds greatly to an appreciation of its importance.

    "One of the great masterpieces of scientific literature. I would even say it is a master piece of literature alone. I hope this man is remembered by the future and not forgotten further." - reader review
  • The Soul of the White AntThe Soul of the White Ant
    Paperback, Kindle, Epub, Audiobook

    The amazing results of a long, close study of the lives of termites.

    "As a safari Guide in the Okavango Botswana for many years, I used this book as a basis for presenting a fascination for the smaller creatures of the African bush, my home for my entire life and which I was privileged to share with many clients from different countries. Termite mounds are really interesting and Eugene Marais compared the infrastructure of a termitary to that of the human body. Writing from the heart, this scientific author instills a wonder in the reader, of the incredible intricacies of nature, in a light-hearted, easily readable manner."

    "An excellent read - astonishing for its time. A heartfelt and truly holistic/metaphysical observation of how the colony functions which is deeply thought provoking..."
  • The Wheel of HealthThe Wheel of Health
    Paperback, Kindle & Epub

    “Why not research health, rather than disease?”

    The Hunza of northern Pakistan were famous for their extraordinary vitality and health. Dr Wrench argues that in part at least, this is because their food was not made ‘sophisticated’, by the artificial processes typically applied to modern processed food. How these processes affect our food is dealt with in great detail in this book.

    The answer that Dr Wrench uncovered in his researches goes deeper than just the food, though. The real answer lies in what was special about the Hunza's water supply.

    A new edition, illustrated.

  • Reconstruction by Way of the SoilReconstruction by Way of the Soil
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    Reconstruction by Way of the Soil uses case studies from Ancient Rome, nomadic societies, medieval England, Africa and Egypt, the West Indies, Russia, Australia and the USA to show that nothing is more important and fundamental than the relationship between civilization and the soil. The book takes us through the history of some of the world’s most important civilizations, concentrating on the relationship between humanity and the soil. Guy Wrench shows how farming practices, and the care – or lack of care – with which the soil is treated has brought about both the rise and fall of civilizations.
  • My InventionsMy Inventions
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    "I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the life and works of Nikola Tesla. Not only is it an invitation to one of the greatest minds of the last century but a chance to get to know Tesla as a person, as the book is filled with anecdotes of his early life. To my surprise and amusement, the inventor had a great sense of humour and very interesting views on various matters, such as friendship, politics and others. The book was written in 1919, almost a century ago, but I am sure it will be an inspiration for several generations to come..." - reader review
  • The Problem of Increasing Human EnergyThe Problem of Increasing Human Energy

    This text was first published in Century Illustrated Magazine in June 1900.

  • Air for FireAir for Fire
    Paperback, Kindle & epub

    A collection of nine short stories and miscellaneous poems by David Major, author of The Day of the Nefilim. While the Nefilim was a meandering trip through some of the world's great conspiracy theories, Air for Fire is a collection of short tales that happen in every timeline but this one. Shameless historical revisionism.

    Air for Fire • The Princess Aslauga • The Tower • Berthezene • The One a Dog Runs To • All That The Thunderer Wrung From Thee • Rhakotis • Feeding the Beast • The Serpent & the Horse
  • The Day of the NefilimThe Day of the Nefilim
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    Most of the world's conspiracy theories are true, and here is the SF novel that shamelessly capitalizes on the fact...

    “THE DAY OF THE NEFILIM is an impressively written science fiction saga that involves culture clashes between humans, underground mutant races who yearn for the surface, an alien civilization chasing after their lost home planet in Earth’s solar system, and much, much more. The Day Of The Nefilim is highly recommended to science fiction enthusiasts as an engaging, mixed-up adventure of conflict, negotiation, back-stabbing, conspiracy, — and a small-town girl who unknowingly impacts upon it all.” — MidWest Book Review

  • Taking Heart and Making Sense: a New View of Nature, Feeling and the BodyTaking Heart and Making Sense: a New View of Nature, Feeling and the Body

    What do animals feel?
    How do living systems become conscious?

    Taking Heart and Making Sense takes on these and many more questions about the natural world and human experience, helping us to understand our feelings and emotions, and our sense of meaning in life.

    Taking Heart and Making Sense takes readers on a conceptual adventure across many disciplines, presenting contemporary theories about feeling and emotion by major researchers in psychology, philosophy and cognitive science. Lindgaard points out themes as well as problems in these theories, and frames them in relation to our fundamental concepts about the world. Solving these problems requires nothing less than a profound shift in worldview.

    This new worldview is based on the concepts of change, process and relation. It supports coherent explanations of feeling, consciousness and life itself. Feeling is understood as an inner sensing that arises from the whole body. Human beings are seen as unique and individualised as well as deeply interconnected, with each other and with the natural world.

  • Ten Acres is EnoughTen Acres is Enough
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    "Recently we have seen a great back-to-the-land movement, with many young professional people returning to small scale farming; thus it is great fun to read about someone who did exactly the same thing in 1864. In that year, Mr. Edmund Morris gave up his business and city life for a farm of ten acres, made a go of mixed farming and then wrote a book about it. Mr. Morris proves Abraham Lincoln's prediction: 'The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living from a small piece of land'." - Sally Fallon, The Weston Price Foundation

    "I am loving this book. It is so full of information that I can only read a little at a time. I need to read it twice and take notes the next time through. It all about permaculture before the word was even created. Everything in this book can be applied to today's homesteading too. I cant wait to try some of these principals on my own 10 acres!"
  • EarthwormEarthworm

    George Oliver returns the reader to a time and methodology where people took responsibility for what they did and what they produced. In this world of spiraling food prices, huge landfills, diminishing food supplies, loss of topsoil, and water pollution, the reader is gently chastised for "letting someone else do it" and being "just too busy." We were once a self-reliant nation; now we outsource. Oliver shows the reader what is wrong and why. And the book is about earthworms.
  • Franz Schubert – a BiographyFranz Schubert - a Biography
    Paperback, Kindle, epub.

    This new edition of Henry Frost’s 1892 biography of Franz Schubert has been edited and revised. The original references to pieces by Opus number have been replaced with the more commonly used D numbers. Many illustrations of places and people have been added throughout the text, and a complete catalog of Schubert’s works has been included.

    “With faith man steps forth into the world. Faith is far ahead of understanding and knowledge; for to understand anything, I must first of all believe something. Faith is the higher basis on which weak understanding rears its first columns of proof; reason is nothing but faith analysed.” – Franz Schubert
