Download and read online Confessions of a Dark Mind in PDF and EPUB Who am I? What am I? These thoughts run through my mind often when I think about what I have become. On the day I was born, heaven let loose her fury upon the world, destroying all in her path. I have to wonder if she was after me. My mother survived the chaos only to give me my name. When I was six, I learned I could do things no one else could. With this realization came many more. I am not human, but what I am I do not know. What I can become is yet to be seen. What I do know is, there is no one else quite like me. I am an enigma. When I was seventeen, I was approached by the Duran organization, a paranormal research group with black ops military affiliations. I am their spy and when necessary, their assassin, but I have grown so tired of the killing. Each life they ask me to take brings me one step closer to losing myself. I tried to leave once, but I made one mistake. I am no longer alone. I have a daughter. They took her from me and use her to force me to continue my work, but I will never stop looking for her. She is my heart and my soul. My mother named me Raine. She should have named me Misery, because that is what I bring to everyone around me. It is what I intend to bring to the people who took my daughter.

Download and read online Dark Matter of the Mind in PDF and EPUB Is it in our nature to be altruistic, or evil, to make art, use tools, or create language? Is it in our nature to think in any particular way? For Daniel L. Everett, the answer is a resounding no: it isn’t in our nature to do any of these things because human nature does not exist—at least not as we usually think of it. Flying in the face of major trends in Evolutionary Psychology and related fields, he offers a provocative and compelling argument in this book that the only thing humans are hardwired for is freedom: freedom from evolutionary instinct and freedom to adapt to a variety of environmental and cultural contexts. Everett sketches a blank-slate picture of human cognition that focuses not on what is in the mind but, rather, what the mind is in—namely, culture. He draws on years of field research among the Amazonian people of the Pirahã in order to carefully scrutinize various theories of cognitive instinct, including Noam Chomsky’s foundational concept of universal grammar, Freud’s notions of unconscious forces, Adolf Bastian’s psychic unity of mankind, and works on massive modularity by evolutionary psychologists such as Leda Cosmides, John Tooby, Jerry Fodor, and Steven Pinker. Illuminating unique characteristics of the Pirahã language, he demonstrates just how differently various cultures can make us think and how vital culture is to our cognitive flexibility. Outlining the ways culture and individual psychology operate symbiotically, he posits a Buddhist-like conception of the cultural self as a set of experiences united by various apperceptions, episodic memories, ranked values, knowledge structures, and social roles—and not, in any shape or form, biological instinct. The result is fascinating portrait of the “dark matter of the mind,” one that shows that our greatest evolutionary adaptation is adaptability itself.

Her skeletonized remains are found in a field, near a torture device. Who committed this heinous crime? And why? * A teenager's body is found hanging in a storm sewer. His clothes are neatly folded by the entrance and a stopwatch is found in his mouth. Is he the victim of a bizarre, ritualistic murder...or an elaborate masturbatory fantasy gone awry? * A married couple, driving with their toddler in the backseat, pick up a female hitchhiker. They kidnap her and for seven years keep her as a sexual slave. The wife agreed to this inhuman arrangement in exchange for having a second child. Who was to blame? As gruesome as the crimes are and as unsettling as the odds seem, Hazelwood proves that the right amount of determination and logic can bring even the most cunning and devious criminals to justice.

The stories in this collection did precisely that; they popped up into my conscious mind from an unknown source when I had never even had a glimpse of their original provenance. Are they the remnants of inherited fragments of memories or fears of some bygone ancestor that came to me via genes passed down through the ages? Have they been adrift in other minds before mine, unable to escape until now?
