Nei momenti più bui, ricorda sempre di fare un passo alla volta.
Voler ottenere tutto e subito è sciocco
Nei momenti più difficili, ricorda sempre che le abitudini stabiliscono un destino.
Stabilisci quelle che ti danno energia e crescita.
È solo nell’ora più profonda del Duat, nella Notte oscura dell’anima che possiamo vedere noi stessi.
E capire come superare la notte.
Non rifuggire l’oscurità, impara a vederci attraverso.
Tutto passa e scorre, il giorno diviene notte e la notte giorno.
Ciò che è bene per te ora domani diverrà un ostacolo e un impedimento, o un danno, e viceversa.
Tutto finisce e muta, come la pelle di un serpente.
Impara ad essere la volontà pura di vivere e non la pelle morta di un intento esaurito.
Tutto ciò che non supera l’alba del tuo nuovo giorno, non deve essere portato con te.
Il mondo è infinito, non giudicare perdite e guadagni come il piccolo pescatore che non ha mai visto l’Oceano.
Sconfinate sono le possibilità della Ruota.
Impara a fluire e solo allora senza occhi, senza orecchie né pensiero, vedrai, sentirai e capirai il Tao.

Richard Milton (author)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Richard Milton (born 1943) is a British journalist and writer.

Alternative science

Milton is an advocate of "alternative science" as advanced in his books Alternative Science: Challenging the Myths of the Scientific Establishment [1] and Forbidden Science: Suppressed Research That Could Change Our Lives,[2] and on his (now defunct) website.[3]
According to Milton:[3]

• Cold fusion is a real phenomenon. Furthermore, the standard solar model is flawed, and the sun may in fact be powered by a cold fusion process.
• Alternative medical concepts, such as bioenergy, homeopathy and iridology are scientifically valid.
• Paranormal phenomena, such as psychokinesis and remote viewing are real.
• There is evidence for the luminiferous ether, but it is ignored because it contradicts the theory of relativity.

Milton's claims have been criticised as pseudoscience by philosophy professor Robert Carroll.[4]

Milton is also a critic of the theory of evolution, having written The Facts of Life: Shattering the myth of Darwinism.[5] He has stated that he is not a creationist, and that his anti-Darwinism is non-religious in basis.[6] Milton also appeared on The Mysterious Origins of Man, a television documentary arguing that mankind has lived on the Earth for tens of millions of years, and that mainstream scientists have suppressed supporting evidence.
The Facts of Life was reviewed by Oxford biologist Richard Dawkins, who described it as "twaddle that betrays, on almost every page, complete and total pig-ignorance of the subject at hand".[7]. Milton blames the influence of Dawkins for the rejection of an article he wrote for the Times Higher Education Supplement.[8] Milton engaged in a lengthy email debate with the author of the "Fossil Hominids FAQ" at the TalkOrigins Archive, which is posted there in its entirety.[9]
Milton's claims on the age of mankind have also been criticised for scientific inaccuracy.[10]

Political works

His book Bad Company is an exposé of corporate behavior,[11] and was chosen by The Sunday Times as their Business Book of the Week.[citation needed] More recently, he has written, Best of Enemies, a work on Anglo-German relations during the two world wars.[12]

Fictional works

Milton is the author of two novels: Dead Secret is a paranormal mystery story,[13] whilst The Glass Harmonica is an as-yet unpublished conspiracy thriller.
