Summary

Why did the ancients align their monuments so precisely with the stars? What were the practical and symbolic reasons behind these mysterious configurations? From the author of The Orion Mystery, the best-selling book that introduced the revolutionary star-correlation theory about the Giza pyramids, The Egypt Code reveals an amazing Grand Unified Plan behind the legendary temples of upper Egypt.Robert Bauval, one of the world’s most prominent and controversial Egyptologists, completes his groundbreaking investigation of astronomy as related to Egyptian monuments and related religious texts. The Egypt Code revisits the Pyramid Age and the Old Kingdom, proposing a vast sky-ground correlation for the Memphite-Heliopolis region, and presenting the possibility of a grand plan spanning three thousand years of Pharaonic civilization and involving pyramids and major temple sites along the Nile.The central idea of the book is that the cosmic order, which the ancients referred to as "Maat," was comprised of the observable cycles of the sun and stars, in particular the star Sirius, and that the changes that took place due to the precession of the equinoxes and the so-called Sothic Cycle are reflected in the orientation and location of religious sites.

We have a lot on our plate. And those of us who are running our own businesses even more so.We are giving so much to the world around us.But things won’t shift until we get those birds on our shoulders to stop the negative chitchat.And the best fastest way to cut the self-doubt in its tracks is through meditation.And I make doing meditation dead easy.My MOVE collections are guided meditations.You don’t have to learn the ‘ins and outs ’of meditation.

    Is Our Will Truly Free?

    Do you create your own destiny? Or does the universe deal you a hand that you have to play with?This series will stimulate your mind through a collection of profound and timeless questions about free will and determinism. As you analyze these competing philosophies, you will find that every answer raises fascinating new questions about morality, fate, consciousness, and the existence of a higher power.Of course, recent neuroscientific discoveries only fan the flames of the philosophical debate. Most scientific thought is predicated on the assumption that every action is determined by a prior action. But if that’s true, what does it imply about free will?In this series of three episodes, host Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn welcomes a total of 18 guest experts to discuss free will. Each episode is crafted as a series of one-on-one interviews.You’ll join some of the world’s leading philosophers, including John Rogers Searle of UC Berkeley, Ned Block of NYU, Peter van Inwagen of Notre Dame, and Daniel Clement Dennett III of Tufts. Within the field of philosophy of mind, Block has made important contributions to matters of consciousness and cognitive science. Meanwhile, van Inwagen is a leading figure in contemporary metaphysics, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of action.The implications of this debate are far-reaching and potentially paradigm-shifting. Now is your chance to unpack the details with the greatest minds the world has to offer.Note: Episodes One and Three—Is Free Will an Illusion? and Why is Free Will a Mystery?—were funded in part by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.

    Are screens holding you or your family back from all you were created to be? 
    Most of us are unintentional with screens, but tech industry architects intentionally make their content distracting, manipulative, and addictive. 
    [Un]Intentional shows how our obsession with screens often takes us — unintentionally — to places we regret. It reveals the way many apps, games, and videos are designed to entice us to make decisions and form harmful habits that profit the creators at our expense. 
    [Un]Intentional helps you break free by guiding you through proven biblical practices to reclaim your thought life, make good decisions, and fulfill your God-given mission.
