Over 50 years ago, Europe took a gamble: it created a laboratory to study the smallest constituents of matter by bringing nations together in peaceful collaboration, funding basic research and stimulating innovation. The gamble paid off. In addition to Nobel prizes, CERN has brought us the World Wide Web and advances in many fields from civil engineering to medicine.

Today, 10 000 people from over 80 countries are embarking on a new adventure with the 27km Large Hadron Collider at CERN. ATLAS is one of four experiments built to measure the extremes of the first instants of the universe and study the origins of the tiny particles that are the basic building blocks of our world. CERN makes such experiments possible.

THE WILD WEST

IN 3D IMAGES, maps and colorful illustrations this encyclopedia presents the ever-romantic spirit and the landmarks of the North American settlement in the 19th century: Expeditions by pioneers who crossed the continent in search of convenient routes, followed by waves of settlers to the Western regions of Oregon, California and the Midwest prairies. The European cultures encounter with the Native American culture. The trappers and hunters adventures in the endless forests and mountains: sometimes in alliance with the native tribes, sometimes in battles with them. The rapid development of communications and transport: from ox- and horse-driven wagons to the huge railway network.

The difficulties, the risks and the losses did not discourage the multitude of emigrants looking for freedom and a way to make their living. Central to the book is the cowboy theme: the emblem of the Wild West, the creation of the Cattle Kingdom from Texas to the Dacotas. The legendary cowboys were unrivalled in riding, roping and rodeo skills. The towns of the West had their unique image: they were temporary settlements at the time of the Gold Rush, then they became centers of cattle trade and civil establishments. The settlers managed to establish law and order often at gunpoint. The names of famous lawmen, marshals and sheriffs have been preserved in history.

in fact, people on earth have changed little and are not much different from the contemporaries of dante and shakespeare. wars and hatred, misery and injustice, kindness and love, prayer and curse. hardly anything can help suffering but a short break. a large number of people have never known how to move against the powerful flow of existence; yet god made us all susceptible to the solace of a sunray and of beauty. We all weep the endless lament of Earth, and we all experience the hidden joy of life. we artists, however, would have little to say, were we not keeping the intimate relationship with the human in us and with humanity around us, the humanity that listens to us from the heart.

The Great Statesmen of Ancient Greece, Macedonia and Thrace


the BooK is a glimpse at the Roots of euRopean civilization. For the first time, a single volume presents the biographies of twenty-four eminent statesmen who ruled over the lands of the Ancient Europe. These were rulers with strong personalities, political ambitions, and remarkable abilities as diplomats and commanders, each with his own personal relations and dramatic destiny, who founded the state structures that are still in place today. You will find vivid descriptions of the militant Agamemnon, the wise Spartan lawgiver Lycurgus, the Athenians Solon and Pericles, the powerful Thracian kings Sitalces and Cotys, the Macedonian rulers Philip II and Alexander III. In this region of Europe, monarchy, democracy, oligarchy, tyranny, and anarchy appeared for the first time in world history, revealing their potential in public life and becoming established for centuries to come. In the narrative of events from the Trojan War in the 13th century B.C. to the Roman conquest of the Balkans by Emperor Trajan in 106 A.D., a colorful, ethnic world comes alive, one whose diverse cultural traditions have determined the course of our civilization.

empiRe

appaRently well Known but actually less so, the Ottoman Empire is represented in the portraits of its 36 rulers. Who were the sultans, and what sort of personalities were those who created the empire? What were their strong sides, what did they look like, and how happen that the all-powerful rulers of South-Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa and South-West Asia sometimes became tools in the hands of their subordinates? This is an unprejudiced account of the lives of personalities carrying the burden of power, an actual history of the Ottoman Empire pathetic and proud, cruel and honest, with its ups and downs, a history in which the fates of many peoples were intertwined.

CONTINENTS, LIKE HUMAN BEINGS, have their biographies. This book gives a new interpretation of the biography of Europe that is based on the perspective of spiritual science. Well-known events from European history receive a deeper meaning when they are placed in the context of a development process that comprises the childhood, youth and adulthood of Europe. In these phases of development, spiritual impulses have worked that shared the consciousness of the Eurapeans and defined the mission of Europe in the world.

His Life and Teaching

the masteR peteR deunov

PETER DEUNOV represents the third major esoteric spiritual impulse in Bulgaria, following on Orphism (which led to Pythagoreanism and Platonism) and the 10-th century Bogomils (literally meaning dear to God). All three impulses are historical manifestations of the Fellowship of Light based on the cardinal principles of Divine Love, Divine Wisdom and Divine Truth. Of these, Love is the fundamental principle which, as one of Peter Deunovs formulas puts it, brings fullness of life. In the application of these principles, he claims, lies the salvation of the world: I believe in love and wisdom that have created life. I believe that they have the power to recreate the world. I consider Peter Deunov to be the greatest and most universal spiritual teacher of the last century whose significance will only gradually be realised over the coming centuries: eternal principles are timeless and can be appreciated anew in every generation. This beautiful book will help introduce Peter Deunovs teaching to a wider English speaking audience and I can only hope that readers will find it as inspiring as I do. davi d l oRi meR, From the Introduction

The Path To Thyself


since ancient times the eternal spiritual world has been sending via its messengers vital light to humanity. its rays can be traced as a thread of silver in the sacred books of the worlds major religions. although modified later by zealous copiers and followers, the eternal light can still be seen by the unbiased eye and the loving heart. this is a parable about life, about the trials and hardships the seeker experiences along the path to his own spiritual self. a prince nameless lives, perhaps unnoticed, in each of us as a spark of the eternal spiritual sun, eager to be discovered.

is the second volume of mony almalechs biblical hermeneutic project. the tools of etymology, comparative linguistics, textual analysis and modern scientific theories and methods are applied to study the subject of colour in the bible. the light is a prototype of white and is considered macrowhite. it is a popular view that the bible is gods word that radiates light. mony almalech analyses the 46 hebrew roots denoting light and purity and the impossible task of translating them into an indo-european language. the language presentation of the world in biblical hebrew is exposed, allowing an in-depth interpretation of the texts meaning which is often novel to a european reader. the facts about the text are not only presented as linguistic phenomena and translation issues, but are also complemented by theological, theoretical physics, psycholinguistic, cultural, historical and semiotic aspects. some issues: angelology; types of windows; types of linen; gods throne; what is a psalm; fire as a type of light; transformations of light.

donkey

kings will usually choose for ceremonial purposes an animal that is strong and fit for battle, e.g. a purebred horse, a huge elephant, or even a camel. Jesus, the king of the Jews, rode into Jerusalem a colt, the foal of a donkey. there was a tradition behind that: david had a royal mule; solomon was anointed king of israel on a wild donkey. was it wise, or was it foolish for the king to ride an animal that symbolized peaceableness and sexuality? some claim the male donkey was related to the material, i.e. to the perishable and its power, and those who would ride it at a parade would have mastered the material aspect of man and society... why is it that in hebrew the word for a young donkey is not a diminutive of the word for donkey? why is it that the word for a female donkey means slow step and, again, has nothing to do with the male donkey? what about solomons wild donkey? this book offers answers to these intriguing questions, unravels the mystery of why the king of the Jews would ride a mule, of the king who came from the tribe of Judah and of whom Jacob/ israel had prophesied that he would untie his mule just like the apostles untied the one Jesus had sent them to get...

Love is all Forg iving


Reflections on love and spirituality by PETER DEUNOV
mony almalech is a professor at the new bulgarian university and a guest professor at the institute for the bulgarian language with bulgarian academy of sciences and at the higher evangelical theological Institute. His scientific interests are in the field of the bulgarian language, hebraic studies and semiotics. his development was influenced by a two-year specialization with professor dimitri segal at the hebrew university in Jerusalem (1993-94). He created the first HebrewBulgarian Dictionary (2004). his knowledge of hebrew has allowed him to analyse the original text of the bible in comparison with various translations, applying the tools of traditional and modern linguistics. The first volume of his biblical hermeneutic project, Colour in the Torah, was published in 2006. the interdisciplinary analysis of colour is a distinctive feature of his works on colour in folklore, literature and advertising: Balkan Folk Colour Language (1996); Colour and Word: Psycholinguistic and Pragmatic Aspects (2001); Roots: The Semiotics of Colour (2006); The Language of Colour (2007). His first monograph back in 1993 was on bulgarian grammar, and he has never abandoned the subject: Language and Idiolect: The Language of Bulgarian Jews in Israel (2006).

the calendar of wisdom is a collection of aphorisms representing millennia of business and intuitive human experience. the principle applied in the selection allows us to see common aspects in apparently opposing statements. The arrangement by dates and months of the year provides for tranquil reflection over complementary thoughts. we all need a degree of eloquence in our everyday communication, and we depend increasingly on our ability to convince. in addition to that, aphorisms may modify our attitudes and views, and being a concise form with deep layers of meaning, may have a healing effect on the human soul.

ISIS SEICHIM
An Ancient Egyptian System for the Harmonisation of Body and Soul Initiation into the Path to the Supreme Self
TEXT Elissaveta Alexandrova-Zangelmi DESIGN Krassimira Despotova

SEICHIM IS an anCIEnT EGypTIan SySTEM of healing and wisdom. It is based on the living energy of light that is within us and in everything around us. Isis Seichim is a branch of Seichim that was created in australia by Ruth Mays and Mary Shaw as a result of a spontaneous channelling from the goddess Isis herself, guardian of the mysteries and healer of the worlds suffering. Seichim cannot be a tool of evil intentions It is only accessible to people who have opened up their hearts for unconditional love. The sacred knowledge presented here in the form of healing techniques, symbols and mantras open a gate to spiritual growth, inner alchemy and energy elevation. Perfection or ones self-fulfillment is more that the affirmation of ones Christ (the Self) and the rejection of ones anti-Christ (the Ego); it is the establishment of a perfect harmony and balance between these two factors and ones nature which is in a process of an ongoing evolution, a kind of an incomplete symphony.
