In the distant future, humans wage war against the alien planet Caeorleia, with no tactic off-limits if it will help the humans get their hands on Caeorleia´s resources. Ask Ryker. He thought he volunteered for a simple experiment that would help his government in the war. He didn´t realize sadistic doctors would turn him into the experiment - by injecting him with blood from a captured Caeorleian, Seral Iorflas. Nor did Ryker realize he´d be sent to sabotage a planet full of the very beings his world is battling, beings who kill humans on sight. But then, thanks to the experiment that irrevocably changed him, he isn´t exactly human any longer - and with each passing day, as his blood bond with Seral strengthens, he´s less and less sure as to whose side he´s on. 1.

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life´s perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way. Spirituality is meant to bring about harmony and peace. But the diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts, and views about the soul often leads to confusion. To reconcile the noise that clouds spirituality, Michael Singer combines accounts of his own life journey to enlightenment - from his years as a hippie-loner to his success as a computer program engineer to his work in spiritual and humanitarian efforts - with lessons on how to put aside conflicting beliefs, let go of worries, and transform misdirected desires. Singer provides a road map to a new way not of living in the moment but to exist in a state of perpetual happiness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael A. Singer.

Während einer Forschungsreise durch den tropischen Regenwald Amazoniens entwickeln die beiden Wissenschaftler Manfred Säuerling und Georg Rosenrunge eine Vision. Ihre ebenso kühne wie bahnbrechende Idee sieht vor, mit biologischen Energieressourcen, bei denen Tiere als Kraftwerke dienen, im großen Stil Alternativen zur konventionellen Stromerzeugung zu schaffen. Doch die Erfindung bringt dem Forscherteam nicht nur Ruhm ein. Ein übermächtiger Gegner, der sein Monopol auf die Stromerzeugung nicht so schnell aus der Hand geben will, meldet sich zu Wort.
