Author of the international bestseller The Hidden Life of Trees Peter Wohlleben has quite a talent for regarding worlds unnoticed by the common eye. The Inner Life of Animals is a compilation of Peter’s personal observations of animals. Including an array of his own animal companions and interactions with inhabitants of local forests. Being a lover of nature, Peter addresses the common debate whether animals have a conscious mind. Due to the evidence he has collected, it is hard to declare the contrary. From illicit affairs, grieving loss, hierarchy, theft, and much more, Peter attests to theatrics unfolding right before our eyes only if we have the willingness to notice. The Inner Life of Animals is sure to delight those who are interested in discovering more about our fellow earthlings.
Are human beings in essence good or evil? This is an age-old question that Paulo Coehlo explores in his thought-provoking work- The Devil and Miss Prym. A handsome stranger arrives in the once peaceful French village of Viscos plunging it into chaos. The traveler announces his intention of burying eleven gold bars in the forest and if the townspeople are able to uncover the treasure then they may keep the fortune. However, the catch is the villagers must be willing to kill a member of the community in order to obtain this life-changing wealth. The story that ensues will have you questioning your own integrity in addition to the morality of humans. Will the townspeople do unthinkable things to achieve their deepest desires or will they continue living their quiet life which will inevitably lead to their demise. Find out with the guidance of our generation’s cherished storyteller Paulo Coehlo. The answers may shock you
Many of us use the phrase “collective unconscious” yet are unaware of where it originated. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung defined the idea that we can not individually control the depths of our subconscious mind as it is genetically intertwined with other members of the human species. Jung believed that these ancestral memories, or archetypes, are similar across all religions and cultures. These archetypes are present throughout history in art, literature and, dreams. This may help explain irrational fears such as snakes, darkness, or spiders even if one has no direct incident with them. They are genetically instilled in our subconscious because something happened to one of our ancestors. That trauma caused an implanted warning gene which is hereditarily carried down to the current generation. Psychology of the Unconscious is simply fascinating. If analyzing the capacity of the human mind piques your interest, I can not recommend this psychology masterpiece enough.
