Many people view healing as a purely physical experience, one which is achieved through the use of pills and potions. But for thousands of years our ancestors relied on spiritual healing in times of illness, sorrow or distress. This type of healing is about dealing with the whole person and acknowledging the connection between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the self. Spiritual healing can be very effective on a basic level and can be taught relatively easily. In The Healing Handbook author Tara Ward presents a range of techniques and tools for healing yourself and others, including children and animals.

What if our physical bodies were perpetually being formed upon an invisible field of information? And what if this field was one vital and integral part of the same field underlying the physical structure of our universe, holding all the information and wisdom of its past and present?And what if, by being a knowing contributor to this field, each of us could create a blissful and peaceful future not only for ourselves and our planet, but for our whole universe?If we are indeed, at the deepest level of our being, truly holographic - these questions may no longer be regarded as far-fetched. Dr Robin Kelly, author of the award winning The Human Antenna, explores these mind stretching concepts and speculates exactly how our developing awareness of ourselves as Human Holograms will affect every aspect of our future on this planet.He guides us into how we can best use this information here and now to transform our lives, and to achieve optimum health.

This book covers basic- to expert-level applications in computer holography, a strong candidate for the ultimate 3D display technology. The computer holography developed in the course of the past decade represents the basis of wave optics. Accordingly, the book presents the basic theory of wave optics and practical techniques for handling wave fields by means of the fast Fourier transform. Numerical techniques based on polygons, as well as mask-based techniques, are also presented for calculating the optical fields of virtual 3D models with occlusion processing. The book subsequently describes simulation techniques for very large-scale optical fields, and addresses the basics and concrete applications of simulation, offering a valuable resource for readers who need to employ it in the context of developing optical devices. To aid in comprehension, the main content is complemented by numerous examples of optical fields and photographs of reconstructed 3D images.

In this book series on Optical Sciences, holography has been the subject of three previous volumes. In particular, Vol. 16, written by one of us (W. S. ) and Dr. M. Dubas, treated holographic interferometry of opaque bodies from the standpoint of deformation analysis. However, the fundamental principles of holography are developed there only briefly in preparation for a discussion of interference fringe modifications. This new volume in the series is intended to consider in detail many topics which were previously omitted, such as the deformation or distortion of holo graphic images, the theory of volume holograms, composite or multiplex holo graphy, holographic interferometry of transparent media, time dependent effects, holographic contouring, and applications of fringe modifications to the deformation of opaque bodies. In addition, these and other subjects will be treated with the same unifying concept developed in Vol. 16, but with an addi tional emphasis on those features that have their origins in classical optics, espe cially the small-wavelength approach, the coupled-wave theory, and the Seidel aberrations. Since the field of holography and its various applications is growing rapidly, it is impossible to be comprehensive in a single book. Every effort has beep. made to avoid unnecessary duplication of Vol. 16. For example, displace ment and fringe localization problems are only briefly discussed, while some modification techniques (e. g. , sandwich holography) are not included. When needed, however, the reader is directly referred to complementary publications.

A New York Times bestseller, Safari is a magical journey for the whole family. Readers, as if on African safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive using never-before-seen Photicular technology. Each full-color image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The result is breathtaking. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. It’s mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special. Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It’s the romance of being on safari—and the thrill of seeing the animals in motion— in a book unlike any other.

Holography exploded on the scientific world in 1964, but its slow fuse had been burning much longer. Over the next four decades, the echoes of that explosion reached scientists, engineers, artists and popular culture. Emerging from classified military research, holography evolved to represent the power of post-war physics, an aesthetic union of art and science, the countercultural meanderings of holism, a cottage industry for waves of would-be entrepreneurs and a fertile plot device for science fiction. New working cultures sprang up to mutate holography, redefining its products, reshaping its audiences and reconceiving its applications. The outcomes included ever more sublime holograms and exquisitely sensitive measuring techniques - but also priority disputes, prurience and poisonous business rivalries. New subjects cross intellectual borders, and so do their explanations. This book draws on the history and philosophy of science and technology, social studies, politics and cultural history to trace the trajectory of holography. The result is an in-depth account of how new science emerges. Based on unprecedented interviews with pioneer holographers and extensive archival research, it reveals how science, technology, art and wider culture are entwined in the modern world.
