Newton was a natural philosopher (the word ´´scientist´´ had not yet been coined) who described a planetary system held together by gravitational forces. His ´´Principia´´ changed science forever; gravity not only explained the orbits of stars, it explained common earthly events as well. Newton established a way of thinking that still shapes our everyday understanding of how the world works. The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history´s most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. 1.

This audiobook could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments that prove reality is malleable, consciousness trumps matter, and you shape your life with your mind. Yes, you read that right. It says prove. The nine experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton´s laws of motion. Rather than take it on faith, E-Squared invites you to prove the following principles:There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilitiesYou impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectationsYour connection to the field provides accurate and unlimited guidanceThe universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodatingPLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

This is a summary of Pam Grout´s E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality E-Squared could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments to prove once and for all that reality is malleable, that consciousness trumps matter, and that you shape your life with your mind. Rather than take it on faith, you are invited to conduct nine 48-hour experiments to prove there really is a positive, loving, totally hip force in the universe. Yes, you read that right. It says prove. The experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton´s laws of motion. For years, you´ve been hoping and praying that spiritual principles are true. Now, you can know. E-Squared proves the following: 1. There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities. 2. You impact the field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations. 3. You, too, are a field of energy. 4. Whatever you focus on expands. 5. Your connection to the field provides accurate and unlimited guidance. 6. Your thoughts and consciousness impact matter. 7. Your thoughts and consciousness provide the scaffolding for your physical body. 8. You are connected to everything and everyone else in the universe. 9. The universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodating.

When Isaac Newton´s alchemical papers surfaced at a Sotheby´s auction in 1936, the quantity and seeming incoherence of the manuscripts was shocking. No longer the exemplar of Enlightenment rationality, the legendary physicist suddenly became ´´the last of the magicians.´´ Newton the Alchemist unlocks the secrets of Newton´s alchemical quest, providing a radically new understanding of the uncommon genius who probed nature at its deepest levels in pursuit of empirical knowledge. In this evocative and superbly written book, William Newman blends in-depth analysis of newly available texts with laboratory replications of Newton´s actual experiments in alchemy. He does not justify Newton´s alchemical research as part of a religious search for God in the physical world, nor does he argue that Newton studied alchemy to learn about gravitational attraction. Newman traces the evolution of Newton´s alchemical ideas and practices over a span of more than three decades, showing how they proved fruitful in diverse scientific fields. A precise experimenter in the realm of ´´chymistry,´´ Newton put the allusive riddles of alchemy to the test in his lab. He also used ideas drawn from the alchemical texts to great effect in his optical experimentation. In his hands, alchemy was a tool for attaining the material benefits associated with the philosopher´s stone and an instrument for acquiring scientific knowledge of the most sophisticated kind.
This course is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology. The course discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the Earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton´s Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household chemicals and supplies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Wile.

Isaac Newton seemed to be a most unwanted child of the world. Ignored by his mother, scorned by contemporaries, seemingly at war with the world in which he lived, Newton turned his energies to things unseen. His laws of motion and law of universal gravitation would set the stage for a most extraordinary life.Inside you will hear about....The English Civil War Newton and the Apple Newton´s Work in Mathematics & Optics Middle Years in Scientific Experiments PrincipiaNewton and Alchemy Later Life and Death And much more!Follow along as you travel from a rugged stone farmhouse to Trinity College, Cambridge to the halls of London exhibitions where Newton found himself the celebrity of the age. Looking back on Aristotle, and inspired by all that Galileo had brought the world, Newton made his life work much of what is heralded as the modern age. He saw what no one else did, and his vision saw into the universe. See how he did it, and why. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Rossman.

Science is always telling stories. Whether in the creation myths of evolution or the Big Bang, or in the eureka moments of science history, narrative just as much as metaphor is a key tool in the scientist´s surprisingly literary toolkit. Perhaps the most interesting use of story is the thought experiment, the intuition pump, that draws on the most instinctive parts of the imagination to crack otherwise perplexing problems. From Newton´s Bucket to Maxwell´s Demon, from Einstein´s Lift to Schrodinger´s Cat, all are examples of ´fiction´ being used at the highest level, not just to explain, but to deduce, to prove. In this unique anthology, authors have collaborated with leading scientists, to bounce literary, human narratives against purely theoretical ones, alloying together real stories with abstract ones, to produce truly extraordinary results. Also featuring stories by Annie Clarkson, Marie Louise Cookson, Claire Dean, Andy Hedgecock, Sarah Schofield, Zoe Gilbert, Sandra Alland, Margaret Wilkinson, and Anneliese Mackintosh; plus afterwords by Professors Stewart Boogert, Sarah Bridle, Seth Bullock, Steven French, Roman Frigg, Frank Jackson, Michela Massimi, Tara Shears, Jonathan Wolff and Ana Jofre. 1.
