The first book of this series, 23 Hours, was a labor of love and an intense lesson in the skills of writing. I dont even pretend to have those skills, but I do fool myself into thinking they might have some value to someone other than myself. If you enjoyed 23 Hours, I think you will love The Blue Planet. Its shorter and more focused, and less oriented as a social commentary, an outcry against the wrongs of the world. All in all, its just a lot more fun, with an incredible ending.

In his childhood, Albert Einstein begins to have experiences that connect him with events from a past, seemingly unknown, located beyond the boundaries of his existence. How is he related to these characters from the blue planet’s history that unexpectedly bombard him from the depths of his febrile dreams? Will his reasoning as a man of science find a logical explanation for these episodes scattered along the course of his life, without having to renounce the objectivity that pervades his scientific work? Find the answers to these questions in this story, and further discover the link between The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the final works of this illustrious scientist, which the world—mistakenly—considers to be nonexistent: The unified field theory.

The ocean dominates the surface of the earth and is in the pages of the Bible too. The Bible offers a view of the sea and the life it supports which affirms its intrinsic value to God as a good, and indeed essential, part of creation. At the same time, it also speaks perceptively of the sea’s vulnerability to damage and change. The Bible’s focus on the sea raises questions about economics and the interconnectedness of communities, whilst further references to the sea raise questions about our human-centredness and spirituality, and about our fear of chaos and disaster. In a unique collaborative project, the oceanographer Meric Srokosz and the biblical scholar Rebecca Watson not only offer environmental insights on the sea, but also connect the ocean with other key issues of broader concern—spirituality, economics, chaos, and our place in the world. Each chapter concludes with ideas for discussion and reflection, and for suggested actions in the light of the issues raised. The book will present a fresh new lens through which to view the Bible and as such inform biblical scholars, students, and preachers alike. Table of Contents: 1. The Sea and Salvation 2. The Sea and Spirituality 3. The God of the Sea and All that Fills It 4. Human Creatures and the Life of the Sea 5. The Sacred Sea 6. Coping with Chaos and Uncertainty: The ‘Chaotic’ Sea 7. The Vast, Vulnerable Sea: A Spacious Sea? 8. Economics, Hubris and Human Community: Travel and Trade on the Sea 9. Blue Planet, Blue God

Accompanied by her soul mate, Ahrgyan-Sy, Princess Thyan-B descends from "The-One" and is strategically placed within the Orion constellation. The couple is prepared to embrace a mission in "Earth-lands" that will help humankind in their quest to evolve. The mission is complex and dangerous, and failure carries with it the possibility of creating serious imbalances in the "Earth-lands" and at the same time exposing the the "Ones" to living the challenging existence of humans. As a missionary, Thyan-B takes her role seriously as she tries to lead humankind to freedom and enlightenment. But during her journey, she is separated from her prince and betrayed by her comrades. Thyan-B wonders if she can overcome the clutches of the human "hamster-wheel," be reunited with her soul mate, and once again become a "One-Star-Light-Princess." A tale of the metaphysical, One-Star-Light narrates a story of loss, love, hope, and compassion.
