The Soil and Health | Albert Howard | PDF

This book 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. A central theme of this book is 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

Contents
1 – Soil Fertility and Agriculture: the operations of nature: systems of agriculture; soil fertility in Great Britain; industrialism and the profit motive; the intrusion of science.
2 – Disease in Present-day Farming and Gardening: diseases of the soil; the diseases of crops; disease and health in livestock; soil fertility and human health; the nature of disease.
3 – The Problem of Manuring: the origins and scope of the problem; the Indore Process; reception by scientists.

An Agricultural Testament | Albert Howard | PDF

“On reading An Agricultural Testament, I was affected so profoundly that I could not rest until I purchased a farm. The reading of this great book showed me how simple the practice of the organic method could be.” – J. Rodale

“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 Soul of the Ape | Eugene Marais | PDF

“One of the great masterpieces of scientific literature. I would even say it is a masterpiece of literature alone. I hope this man is remembered by the future and not forgotten further.” – reader review

Eugene Marais spent three years living in the South African wilderness in close daily contact with a troop of baboons. He later described this as the happiest, most content time of his troubled life. This period produced two works which are testament to his research and conclusions; they have very different histories.

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.

Together, these three texts give us as complete a picture as we will ever get of Marais’ three year study of these complex relatives of humanity, and its implications for the study of consciousness.

Franz Schubert – a Biography | Henry Frost | PDF

Clarity of outline, conciseness, and formal beauty are excellent things in musical works, but an exquisite fancy, a noble imagination, and a lofty poetic spirit are of infinitely greater account; and no one ever possessed these inestimable gifts in richer profusion than Franz Schubert.

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 catalogue 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

Response in the Living and Non-living | Jagadish Bose | PDF

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.

The Day of the Nefilim | David Major | PDF

“THERE IS NOTHING more joyous to me than discovering new, raw creativity. David Major, regardless of his hallucinogen(s) of choice, is a rare find and a fun read. With a smidgeon of Douglas Adams he spends all of six pages before rearranging our world with a sledgehammer and sending us down into underground caves, underworld civilizations in a ship that sails the winds of time. While Mr. Major hints occasionally at the science and history behind his bizarre story it almost doesn’t matter as this great book if a delightful fantasy and well worth the read.” — J. Stephen Peek
THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT READ. Elements of Moorcock, Heinlein and Barker. Deserves serious consideration for the avid SF reader. Hopefully will spawn some more instalments in the story line. Also feel it has the makings of a good screenplay. Thanks for the great writing!” — Ron W.

Ten Acres is Enough | Edmund Morris | PDF

“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

The Soul of the White Ant | Eugene Marais | PDF

“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…”

Earthworm | George Oliver | PDF

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.

The Wheel of Health | Guy Wrench | PDF

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.

Reconstruction by Way of the Soil | Guy Wrench | PDF

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 Inventions | Nikola Tesla | PDF

“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 Blood and its Third Element | Antoine Bechamp | PDF

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. Using the syllable ‘-zyme’ (now also used in the word ‘enzyme’) to indicate this principle of causing ‘fermentation’ (activity) Béchamp searched for and found the same particles and activity even in limestone, apparently from the ancient shelled creatures whose bodies were incorporated into the stone. They still retained their activity. The only factor that stopped these particles was heat.

As Dr. Béchamp expressed it, “Life is the prey of life”: i.e. as the organizing life-principle of a complex body ceases to operate, the microzymas take up their role of breaking it down and returning its elements to nature to be taken up by other life forms.

Unfortunately Pasteur first tried to steal Béchamp’s work, then when he objected, Pasteur set out to use his political clout to destroy the career and reputation of the great French doctor. This is why we don’t hear much about this alternative school of science.

A complete history of this scientific and political conflict was written early in the 20th century, by a woman doing meticulous research into the historical records of the French Academy of Science. Please see Bechamp or Pasteur?: A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology by Ethel Hume. Her book is another must-read for grasping the significance of this concept and why certain interests wanted it deleted from the scientific record.

The same discovery of tiny active particles was repeated in the 20th century, first by Royal Rife using a very complex microscope to observe the particles changing into four different types. Later, working independently and with a different powerful microscope of his own invention, the French scientist Gaston Naessens observed these particles morph into sixteen different forms including bacterial and fungal. The significance of this is that what we think of as pathogens are not necessarily ‘infectious’ (or ‘exogenous’, or from outside), but can be ‘endogenous’ (from within).

Christopher Bird’s detailed account of this concept which has been named “pleomorphism” — and which is still being attacked by the chemical-based medical authorities — is in his very instructive book The Persecution and Trial of Gaston Naessens: The True Story of the Efforts to Suppress an Alternative Treatment for Cancer, AIDS, and Other Immunologically Based Diseases.

Like Ethel Hume, the late Christopher Bird was fluent in French, and attended the French-language trial in Quebec. A version of this story in French is titled Le Galilée du microscope” (Galileo of the Microscope). In reference to the infamous behaviour of Galileo’s critics who refused to look into his telescope, the critics of Naessens refused to look through this powerful microscope that could resolve images in angstrom resolution, without first killing or staining the samples.

As the science of “psychoneuroimmunology” begins to gain traction in clinical practice, I entertain the hope that the role of the endogenous (driven by the psyche) aspects of dis-ease will become more respected. (For a detailed account of that field of understanding I’d recommend reading Dr. Gabor Maté’s book When the Body Says No (also in print).)

Then perhaps Béchamp may be restored to the status he deserves as a medical pioneer far ahead of his time.

Bechamp or Pasteur? | Ethel Hume | PDF

“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.”

“This was an extremely well done historical analysis of medical science, involving these two forerunners of germ theory and infectious diseases; but, perhaps for the very first time, the facts and the truth are revealed about these two men, especially the unacknowledged genius of Bechamp and how Pasteur, whose accomplishments were really quite modest, stole most of his ideas from Bechamp.”
