What if you could do something that you always wanted to do but did not have the experience or knowledge to do, or even to attempt? Developing that ability is the goal of the Mind-Memory Institute. What if you could achieve in days what might take years of schooling and life experience?The open-ended question, “What If …?”, breaks us out of fixed thinking and invites technology, processes, techniques, and discipline into our lives.Here we follow Ralph, Sadie, Albert, and Mark, volunteer subjects/clients participating in experiments to accelerate gaining experience and creating opportunities for themselves. Each has selected a personal goal in art, music, mathematics, and writing respectively, achieves the goal, and then discovers greater goals.Dr. Rene Philippe, founder and Executive Director of the Institute, encouraged by his own personal success in accelerating his own development using linguistics and hypnosis, leads a team of mentors, Gina, Brad, Meghan, and Riley, in research and developing strategies for enhancing, tailoring, and proliferating neuroscientific theories. Dr. Philippe abruptly resigns his positions at the Institute and the University.Along the way, the institute mentors guiding the subjects become subjects themselves.What If…an Exploration into the Mind is speculative fiction, fiction turning into fact, and possibly already somewhere is fact.
You can write, publish, and market your book. Self-Publishing isn’t difficult, but there are many steps. If you have written a book, or want to, here’s what you need to know to get your book up on Amazon. Many authors begin with content, discovering later that they need to target their market. It’s Your Book covers marketing (starting with identifying your market) and creating your book to satisfy your market’s needs and wants.
The next section covers content, including copyright, the internet, techniques for improving quality, progressing into layout. Then Technology introduces word processing, and the support of technology. POD introduces Publish On Demand services, and provides a list of questions to help assess which service is best for you and your book. Ebooks discusses making your book available on ebooks. Appendices include worksheets for research in selecting the right POD for your book. The author suggests comparing POD features and prices against a baseline; using CreateSpace as a baseline.
Acrostics – many think of the puzzle, clues, answered in numbers spaces, transferred to a grid, resulting in a message. Well, Acrostic Poems are different. Read the first letter of each line down, there’s a message, and the body of the acrostics says more about the message. Or read the first letter of each word in the following sentence: Any Challenge Requires Outside Study To Inform Completely. Famous authors who wrote acrostics include Lewis Carroll (Through the Looking Glass), Edgar Allen Poe (ELIZABETH). Here is a collection of fun and functional acrostics, most original by the author. Also included is a guide to creating your own acrostics.
Wordfinderz is a collection of difficult word search puzzles; what makes them difficult is that word placement includes word wrap, the word density is much higher than typical word searches, and each puzzle includes a hidden message.
