A trailblazing biologist grapples with her role in the biggest scientific discovery of our era: a cheap, easy way of rewriting genetic code, with nearly limitless promise and peril.
Not since the atomic bomb has a technology so alarmed its inventors that they warned the world about its use. Not, that is, until the spring of 2015, when biologist Jennifer Doudna called for a worldwide moratorium on the use of the new gene-editing tool CRISPR—a revolutionary new technology that she helped create—to make heritable changes in human embryos. The cheapest, simplest, most effective way of manipulating DNA ever known, CRISPR may well give us the cure to HIV, genetic diseases, and some cancers, and will help address the world’s hunger crisis. Yet even the tiniest changes to DNA could have myriad, unforeseeable consequences—to say nothing of the ethical and societal repercussions of intentionally mutating embryos to create “better” humans.
Writing with fellow researcher Samuel Sternberg, Doudna shares the thrilling story of her discovery, and passionately argues that enormous responsibility comes with the ability to rewrite the code of life. With CRISPR, she shows, we have effectively taken control of evolution. What will we do with this unfathomable power?

A masterpiece ahead of its time, a prescient rendering of a dark future, and the inspiration for the blockbuster film Blade Runner
By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
What are higher dimensions? What are parallel dimensions? What are the mechanics of the spirit realm? These timely questions are being asked around the world. Written from a Christian perspective, this book will deconstruct the spirit realm by assessing the reality of higher dimensions and parallel dimensions. It will empower you to experience God in ways many have only philosophically articulated. Higher Dimensions, Parallel Dimensions and the Spirit Realm will take you far beyond the parameters of traditionally imposed limitations, and elevate your understanding of human ability and identity in Jesus Christ.
Beginning with an assessment of the creation account, you will learn how the earth and the heavens were created in layers. These layers allow for interplay between physical and spiritual events. You will learn the difference between higher dimensions and parallel dimensions and how each can have influences that impact your life. You will also learn about the non-physical components of human nature in great detail. You will then understand why God designed us with a trans-dimensional nature.
These elements will come together to establish a revelatory perspective on how God designed the Church to operate. You will learn that there is a capacity for greatness that many Christians have only flirted with. You will also get a glimpse of the depths of darkness, and an explanation of the capabilities of those that practice evil. You will learn all about portals and arrive at a revelation regarding why God designed the Church to walk between the realms of heaven and earth. Prepare for a radical transition in thought!
Michele Rigby Assad is a former undercover officer in the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations. Trained as a counterterrorism specialist, Michele spent over a decade in the agency, leading some of the most highly skilled operatives on the planet, secretly serving in some of the most treacherous areas of the Middle East, and at risk as a target for ISIS.
She discusses how she stood out from many of the older white men who excelled at the CIA, and how she used her differences to her advantage. Michele also covers a range of other topics including misconceptions about Middle East, her experience dealing with terrorists, recent shootings in the U.S., and what civilians can do to stay safe.
The CIA is looking for walking contradictions. Recruiters seek out potential agents who can keep a secret yet pull classified information out of others; who love their country but are willing to leave it behind for dangerous places; who live double lives, but can be trusted with some of the nation’s most highly sensitive tasks.
Michele Rigby Assad was one of those people.
As a CIA agent and a counterterrorism expert, Michele soon found that working undercover was an all-encompassing job. The threats were real; the assignments perilous. Michele spent over a decade in the agency―a woman leading some of the most highly skilled operatives on the planet, secretly serving in some of the most treacherous areas of the Middle East, and at risk as a target for ISIS. But deep inside, Michele wondered: Could she really do this job? Had she misunderstood what she thought was God’s calling on her life? Did she have what it would take to survive?
The answer came when Michele faced her ultimate mission, one with others’ lives on the line―and it turned out to have been the plan for her all along. In Breaking Cover, Michele has at last been cleared to drop cover and tell her story: one of life-or-death stakes; of defeating incredible odds; and most of all, of discovering a faith greater than all her fears.
This book is a companion to the groundbreaking ideas that began with The Messengers. It is a further exploration into the connection, both symbolic and literal, between owls and UFOs. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defies any simple explanation. Each chapter tells a deeply personal story where these mysterious experiences are explored in depth. The ancient mythology of the owl is repeating itself within the modern UFO report. What plays out is a journey of transformation, with an owl at the heart of each story.
Zeena Schreck (born Zeena Galatea LaVey, November 19, 1963), known professionally by her mononymous artist name ZEENA, is a Berlin-based American visual and musical artist, author and the spiritual leader of the Sethian Liberation Movement (SLM), which she founded in 2002.
Raised within the construct of her father’s organization, the Church of Satan, she came to international prominence early in life as the Church’s first spokesperson, defending the organization during the 1980s U.S. moral witch-hunt, popularly known as ‘The Satanic Panic’. In 1990 she resigned her position, severed ties with her father Anton LaVey and his Church and renounced the church’s tenets. Since that time, her religion changed to Buddhism and she is now a teacher of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism.
Full of dark humor, how-to advice, and self-proclaimed hard-won wisdom, the essays in this new collection present more of the opinions and ideas from famed satanist Anton LaVey. This is the last book of essays by Church of Satan founder LaVey.
Jane Roberts (May 8, 1929 – September 5, 1984) was an American author, poet, self-proclaimed psychic, and spirit medium, who claimed to channel an energy personality who called himself “Seth.” Her publication of the Seth texts, known as the Seth Material, established her as one of the preeminent figures in the world of paranormal phenomena. The Yale University Library Manuscripts and Archives maintains a collection entitled Jane Roberts Papers (MS 1090), which documents the career and personal life of Jane Roberts, including journals, poetry, correspondence, audio and video recordings, and other materials donated after her death by Roberts’ husband and other individuals and organizations.
One of the most powerful of the Seth Books, this essential guide to conscious living clearly and powerfully articulates the furthest reaches of human potential, and the concept that we all create our own reality according to our individual beliefs. Having withstood the test of time, it is still considered one of the most dynamic and brilliant maps of inner reality available today.
This is a picture of me, sitting on my throne, judging all the people that come to my blog. I wonder if anyone has learned anything new. I have a feeling most people wouldn’t take the time to watch anything over a few minutes long.
In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
BioViva was founded in 2015. In early 2016, Sierra Sciences announced that they were working with BioViva to start a new medical tourism-based venture, BioViva FIJI, on Fiji and that they will be the first company to use gene therapy to treat biological aging in humans. CEO Liz Parrish explained the reason for setting up in Fiji: “The current regulatory authorities have an outdated model that does not accommodate these new technologies.”
BioViva released data gathered post-therapy in 2016, claiming that independent testing by SpectraCell Laboratories had revealed Parrish’s leukocyte telomere length had been extended from 6.71kb to 7.33kb, an amount they state is equivalent to a reversal of 20 years of telomere attrition. The company also released data suggesting an improvement in insulin sensitivity, an increase in muscle mass, a more favourable blood lipid profile and a reduction in C-reactive protein, a potent marker of inflammation.
Parrish appeared at WIRED Health 2017 in London to discuss BioViva’s testing of gene therapies targeting hallmarks of the ageing process. Appearing in WIRED, Parrish stated, “The company was built essentially to prove these therapies work or not. Remember BioViva is not a research organisation. We are taking things like gene therapies and using them like technology.”
Regenerative medicine and human life extension are among the most cutting-edge pursuits in science, and potentially among the most profitable. In Merchants of Immortality, Stephen S. Hall offers both an expose of this fascinating science and a case study of the billion-dollar industry that has grown up around it. At the center of the field are stem cell research and cloning — topics of continuous ethical debate — and the stem cell legislation that has unintentionally created a strange and thriving private-sector business niche.
Merchants of Immortality is a captivating, incisive account of a new frontier at the intersection of biology and business.
