7 Books That Will Make You Question Everything You Thought You Knew

Everyone has their own perceptions of reality, sometimes the first step to growth is reading about someone else’s. This article recommends 7 books that will help you to push past what you always believed was true, uncovering surprising and helpful insights.

1. Naked, Short, and Greedy by Susanne Trimbath, Ph.D

Supplied with research and insider information, author Susanne Trimbath exposes how badly the current financial system needs to be reformed. The US, Canadian and European markets are at stake and this book is an important tool for everyone who wants to be better informed about the globalizing economy.

2. Google Leaks: A Whistleblower’s Exposé of Big Tech Censorship by Zach Vorhies

Zach Vorhies was a senior engineer at Google watching as the 2016 election of Donald Trump drove Google into a frenzy of censorship and political manipulation. Using Google’s own internal search engine, Zach discovered their real “AI-Censorship” system called “Machine Learning Fairness”. He collected and released 950 pages of insider documents to the Department of Justice and to the public through Project Veritas.

3. The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes by Donald Hoffman

Cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman argues that while we should take our perceptions seriously, we should not take them literally. How can it be possible that the world we see is not objective reality? And how can our senses be useful if they are not communicating the truth? Hoffman grapples with these questions and more over the course of his work.

4. The Human Atmosphere: Or, The Aura Made Visible By The Aid Of Chemical Screens by Walter J. Kilner

It is a central tenet of the New Age movement that the human body is surrounded by energy fields, and that these fields may provide insight into the physical health of the body (and mind). This concept may be traced all the way back to the fringes of scientific thought in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. In the field of medicine, Dr. Walter J. Kilner was the first person to use the phrase “human aura.”

5. The One World Tartarians (Black and White): The Greatest Civilization Ever Erased From History by James W. Lee

The Old Word Order were a charitable group that employed holy geometrical drawings, pipe organs, and catillion bells to aid others, cure illness, and reach a higher state of awareness. Many of the remains of the Tartar people may be found under the streets of modern cities. The 19th and 20th centuries saw the destruction of many of their spectacular structures, and as a result, they have been obliterated from current history.

6. The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism by Fritjof Capra

When The Tao of Physics was published, it was the first time that the mystical implications of subatomic physics had been brought to the attention of the general public. In the years afterwards, many books have been published on the overlaps between quantum theory and the teachings of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism; nevertheless, Fritjof Capra’s essay remains the cornerstone upon which the others rest, and its insights have endured the test of time. Its worldwide relevance and lasting importance are shown in the fact that it has been translated into more than twenty-three languages.

7. DMT: The Spirit Molecule: A Doctor’s Revolutionary Research Into The Biology Of Near-Death And Mystical Experiences by Rick Strassman

DMT: The Spirit Molecule by Rick Strassman is a fascinating exploration of the mind and the healing power of psychedelics. DMT, a molecule extracted from plants and used in the hallucinogenic Amazonian drink ayahuasca, is also synthesized in the human brain. Many of the participants claimed to have had a near-death or mystical experience, and many also claimed to have had genuine meetings with extraterrestrial intelligences, angels, spirits, or aliens. DMT, if taken responsibly, might usher in a new era of groundbreaking research into the most intangible realms of the human psyche.
