**The No.1 Bestseller** 'Wonderful ... superb' Daily Mail What makes a bridge wobble when it's not meant to? Billions of dollars mysteriously vanish into thin air? A building rock when its resonant frequency matches a gym class leaping to Snap's 1990 hit I've Got The Power? The answer is maths. Or, to be precise, what happens when maths goes wrong in the real world. As Matt Parker shows us, our modern lives are built on maths: computer programmes, finance, engineering. And most of the time this maths works quietly behind the scenes, until ... it doesn't. Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near-misses and mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman empire and a hapless Olympic shooting team, Matt Parker shows us the bizarre ways maths trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. Mathematics doesn't have good 'people skills', but we would all be better off, he argues, if we saw it as a practical ally. This book shows how, by making maths our friend, we can learn from its pitfalls. It also contains puzzles, challenges, geometric socks, jokes about binary code and three deliberate mistakes. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.

From the back cover of the book... "For thousands of years, human consciousness has been mired in the muck of fear, confusion, and suffering. However, the patterns of the past no longer apply. At last, Mother Earth and all who reside upon her have set out on an unprecedented trajectory toward awakening. Each one of us can now choose to live in a new paradigm - the fourth dimension. We define the fourth dimension as a higher-vibrational state of being that is characterized by trust, empowerment, abundance, peace, balance, and harmony. It is based on the realization that we are beings of Light who carry formidable power as co-creators of our universe. Living in the fourth dimension requires a conscious shift from relying on the fear-based ego mind to trusting the heart-centered guidance of our Higher Selves. The Ascended Masters discuss how to let go of our history, how to heal anger, fear and pain, and how to develop a personal knowing of our Light. You, too, can take the next step toward creating 'Heaven on Earth.' This book tells you how." In addition to a channeled discourse from the Ascended Masters St. Germain and El Morya Khan this book contains reprints of the first ten issues of the Ascended Masters Newsletter published by the authors. CONTENTS Foreword About the Authors The Past No Longer Applies Fear is the Obstacle You Are in the Center of Your Universe Discussing the Mindset for Change How You Co-Create Your Universe The Earth is Awakening with You Believe, Trust and Expect What is Possible Understand That the Light Empowers You to Change Your Universe Sit and Be Still as Frequently as Possible, and Surrender to Your Light Allow the Light to Heal your Fear and Anger Allow the Light to Guide You in Every Moment and in Everything You Do Let Go of Judgment of Self and Others in All Things Let Go of Trying to Change the World Around You Open to a New Way of Being - and Thus Change the Universe in Which You Reside The One-Percent Solution APPENDIX Ascended Masters Newsletters Books by the Authors

Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky

When Maurice Nicholl was studying in Zurich, he met Jung, and Ouspensky. He went on to study with Gurdjieff, and from 1931 to his death in 1953, he began at Ouspensky's request, a programme of work devoted to passing on the ideas he had received. Reissued in hard cover, these five unedited commentaries are taken from the weekly lectures and talks Nicoll gave to his students in England and which were recorded verbatim; the sixth volume is an index produced by the Gurdjieff society Washington DC. These differ from Nicholl's more polished works - they are more concerned with directly applying certain deep ideas to daily life.

This book is for readers looking for answers about life in clear easy to understand language explaining why we are the way we are and where we are going. It is for anyone who is just opening up to spirit and for those who have a lot of spiritual and psychic experience, and for everyone in between. It ranges from basic understanding of how communication takes place and by whom. Who can we trust in receiving information? Look within the pages for answers to that. Difficult controversial questions are also answered about subjects such as suicide, abortions, guilt and euthanasia; subjects that not many want to openly discuss. This is your opportunity to explore and decide for yourself how you feel. Communication with planetary beings from other spheres and dimensions have their input into these pages. Predictions as to our future existence are included. Questions are put and answered as to our future on this planet, which we would do well to consider. The angelic realm, spirit guides and celestial beings are introduced through questioning individuals who seek answers. Thought on the animal kingdom is not neglected. Some of you will say ‘I already know all that’. This just confirms how much you have grown and advanced. If that applies to you then skip ahead to other subjects. I don’t pretend to know all the answers and quite possibly have some wrong. They are meant to encourage debate and discussion. Apathy does not encourage change we may wish for. I know you are not apathetic or you would not be reading this book. What I currently explain and put forth in this book is always subject to change as understanding and knowledge expands. What I believe today may not be how I see things and believe in the future. Also what one doesn’t understand today may be understood later on. I have answered the questions exactly as they have been put to me as honestly and as
