The State of Indiana denies one million applications for healthcare, foodstamps and cash benefits in three years—because a new computer system interprets any mistake as “failure to cooperate.” In Los Angeles, an algorithm calculates the comparative vulnerability of tens of thousands of homeless people in order to prioritize them for an inadequate pool of housing resources. In Pittsburgh, a child welfare agency uses a statistical model to try to predict which children might be future victims of abuse or neglect.

A build taking over 140 years finally nears completion, as the engineers and architects of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia attempt to raise the six central towers that will make it the world’s tallest church. Already dominating the city’s skyline, soaring over 100 metres tall and attracting 4.5 million visitors each year, the stone towers will push the church’s height above 170 metres. Sagrada Familiar’s original maverick architect, Antoni Gaudi, died almost 100 years ago and many of his plans and models were lost, so the team must follow design clues helping them to realise Gaudi's vision.

Ariane | 2001 | ISBN: 292098747X | French | PDF | 128 pages | 1 MB

Dans L'effet Isaïe, Gregg Braden, l'auteur de L'éveil au point zéro et de Marcher entre les mondes, combine les recherches faites en physique quantique avec les œuvres du prophète Isaïe et des anciens Esséniens.

Narrator: Tom Perkins

Can yoga and meditation unleash our inherent supernormal mental powers, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition? Is it really possible to perceive another person's thoughts and intentions? Influence objects with our minds? Envision future events? And is it possible that some of the superpowers described in ancient legends, science fiction, and comic books are actually real, and patiently waiting for us behind the scenes? Are we now poised for an evolutionary trigger to pull the switch and release our full potentials?
