While Forbidden Gates includes fresh insights for traditional, tried and true methods of overcoming darkness, it also unveils for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy including cybernetics, bio-engineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology, and transhumanism will combine to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything you have ever known about spiritual warfare. How so? In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology (GRIN technologies) as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps, as Joel Garreau in his bestselling book Radical Evolution claims, our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now under way unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As the reader will learn, this includes among other things rewriting human DNA and combining men with beasts, a fact that some university studies and transhumanists believe will not only alter our bodies and souls but could ultimately open a door to contact with unseen intelligence. As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge the Church in ways that are historically and theologically unprecedented. Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of believers could be paralyzed by the most fantastic and most far reaching supernatural implications. The destiny of each individual as well as the future of their family will depend on their knowledge of the new paradigm and their preparedness to face it head on.

ELON MUSK - NEW 3RD EDITION
Grab this GREAT physical book now at a limited time discounted price! This is the recently updated 3rd edition, complete with additional chapters and revisions!
Elon Musk has been busy improving humanity’s chance of long term survival for nearly 20 years. After helping to form PayPal, Musk went on to form a company whose work has since replaced the space shuttle when it comes to NASA flights to the space station and is behind the recent expansion in the number of electric cars on the road as well.
In addition to being a compelling story of triumphing against adversity, 'Elon Musk: Best Lessons for Life, Business, Success and Entrepreneurship!' has plenty to teach when it comes to learning the lessons that Musk has taken to heart to achieve his success.
Musk is a symbol of the American dream, despite not being American, he is truly self-made, working his way through college and starting his first business in time to take advantage of the burgeoning internet scene to become a millionaire before the age of 30.
Unlike many people who might think that was enough, Musk instead put his money into another startup which quintupled his net worth when his company was purchased by eBay. From there he went on to become the CEO of two companies which are each worth $1 billion. Do yourself a favor, learn from what Musk has done, and read this book today.
Here Is What You'll Learn About...
- Who Is Elon Musk
- What Makes Elon So Successful
- Elon's Biggest Successes

|Advanced Control of Piezoelectric Micro-/Nano-Positioning Systems (Advances in Industrial Control)
Lowest new price: $87.93
Lowest used price: $101.86
List price: $129.00
Author: Qingsong Xu
This book explores emerging methods and algorithms that enable precise control of micro-/nano-positioning systems. The text describes three control strategies: hysteresis-model-based feedforward control and hysteresis-model-free feedback control based on and free from state observation. Each paradigm receives dedicated attention within a particular part of the text.
Readers are shown how to design, validate and apply a variety of new control approaches in micromanipulation: hysteresis modelling, discrete-time sliding-mode control and model-reference adaptive control. Experimental results are provided throughout and build up to a detailed treatment of practical applications in the fourth part of the book. The applications focus on control of piezoelectric grippers.
Advanced Control of Piezoelectric Micro-/Nano-Positioning Systems will assist academic researchers and practising control and mechatronics engineers interested in suppressing sources of nonlinearity such as hysteresis and drift when combining position and force control of precision systems with piezoelectric actuation.

Â· Introduction and critical analysis of all major methods of synthesizing nanoparticles Â· Nanoscale processing, nanopatterning, nanometrology Â· Scaling up nanotechnologies from the laboratory to the shop floor Â· How nanoparticles affect quality control, worker safety, and the environment Â· Understanding challenges to nanotechnology commercialization
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A comprehensive account of how nanomaterials are synthesized and processed, this book presents the theory and technology of introducing nano-based materials as value-added elements into product manufacturing. The book explains the fundamentals of vapor, liquid, solid phase, and biosystem-assisted nanoparticle syntheses, with sufficient analysis of each method to permit decisions on which is most productive, energy efficient and safe. The text then confronts the problems of scaling up from lab-based syntheses to manufacturing and demonstrates how nanomaterials on the shop floor require new protocols of quality assurance and employee and environmental protection. The book concludes with case studies of individuals who endeavored to commercialize nanotechnologies for higher-volume production.

Brand: Francois Ganachaud
Silicon Based Polymers presents highlights in advanced research and technological innovations using macromolecular organosilicon compounds and systems, as presented in the 2007 ISPO congress. Silicon-containing materials and polymers are used all over the world and in a variety of industries, domestic products and high technology applications.
Among them, silicones are certainly the most well–known, however there are still new properties discovered and preparative processes developed all the time, therefore adding to their potential. Less known, but in preparation for the future, are other silicon containing-polymers which are now close to maturity and in fact some are already available like polysilsesquioxanes and polysilanes.
All these silicon based materials can adopt very different structures like chains, dendrimers, hyperbranched and networks, physical and chemical gels. The result is a vast array of materials with applications in various areas such as optics, electronics, ionic electrolytes, liquid crystals, biomaterials, ceramics and concrete, paints and coatings … all needed to face the environmental, energetical and technological issues of today. Some industrial aspects of the applications of these materials will also be presented.
