The Luck Factor
Despite the way it may seem, luck is not entirely random. On the path of hubris, we unwittingly arrange our own misfortune, while humility has a way of turning even adversity to its advantage.

BOOK | NONFICTION
Does the moon exist when no one is looking at it? Niels Bohr claimed it does not; Einstein disagreed. At the heart of this famous dispute lie conflicting assumptions about the nature of physical reality that quantum mechanics still has not reconciled. This revolutionary book by our director, Philip Golabuk, sheds new light on the subject, exposing fallacies and misconceptions widely accepted by the world's leading physicists.
BOOK | NONFICTION
What is the self? This is a question as old as civilization, one that science and philosophy have been unable to answer. Despite discovering that the empirical world is observer-dependent, quantum physics has paid little attention to the nature of the observing awareness. In this groundbreaking follow-on to Einstein's Moon, our director Philip Golabuk makes the case that the observer is nonlocal, beyond time and space, and that the universe, including ourselves, is its dream.
BOOK | FICTION
Who Gave Birth
to a Cat
Arcadia, inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Macondo, is a fictional seaport settlement nestled somewhere along the coast of the Mediterranean, a fishing village where the dead can back to life and the sky rain blood—a sad, anachronistic destination serviced by a train that never arrives. The short stories in this collection by author Philip Golabuk are written in the style of "magical realism" as a further homage to Marquez and as a reminder that there is an element of eeriness that runs through even the most commonplace events.
Before the Earth
BOOK | FICTION
Is it possible for human beings to live without enemies, or was violence written into our nature from the beginning? Set in prehistoric Africa circa 10,000 B.C.E., this cautionary tale by author Philip Golabuk offers a fictional account of the origins of civilization. The story centers around Tamal, a strong-willed teenager who leaves behind his beloved Thandi and defies the evil elders by attempting to walk around the earth to prove that it is round and complete his forbidden shamanic training. In his efforts to save his people from oppression by the elders and certain death at the hands of a neighboring cannibal tribe, Tamal "plants the seed of war in the soil of history," unwittingly condemning humankind to a course of self-annihilation.
