Pressure of Light Books

At present, Pressure of Light Books has only one publication availabe:

“The Pressure of Light: how consciousness creates permanence in a universe of infinite-heterogeneity”, (PDF, MP3, and Video for stream or download). Section 3 contains the essay’s core assertions:

“The Permanence Review Newsletter” (released through the blog), continues to explore the outcomes and applications of the essay. The newsletter, broadly speaking, investigates the fact that while permanence exists for individuals in their internal space, it does not exist in the external world where conscious minds nevertheless frequently confirm for each other the existence of permanence.

The following describes what is planned for the inaugural release of books:

The Pressure of Light: shedding new light on the history and philosophy of science between 1739 and 1922

This video is for the Einstein and Hume quotes which head section 2 of the essay. The quotes that head each section offer a prelude to what history and philosophy the book, described below, will be about.

The inaugural release of books from this small press will include revised editions of the first two books in David Hume’s “A Treatise of Human Nature”, James Clerk Maxwell’s “A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism”, and a collection of works from Einstein’s early life, as well as from affiliated thinkers. These books will allow anyone to wrap their minds around the puzzle of electro-magnetic fields as it was pursued between the early 19th and early 20th century, how Hume’s work facilitated the evolution of that pursuit, and how this information forms an intellectual platform of great significance and use to potentially anybody, in science and in life. Outside of scientifically engaged communities, I believe the question, “What is an electro-magnetic field?” is interchangeable with the questions, “Who or what am I?”, “Is there a God?”, and, “What is the purpose of life and the universe?”.

“The Pressure of Light: shedding new light on the history and phlosophy of science between 1739 and 1922” will compliment the pedagogical aims of the full collection of books, theororize about the philosophy of science as it was pursued between the release of Hume’s Treatise, and Eintein’s 1922 lecture, “Geometry and Experience”, and tell the historical story I perceived in Einstein’s early life while writing my essay, “The Pressure of Light: how consciousness creates permanence in a universe of infinite-heterogeneity”.

The inception of my essay happened during a time when I was reading extensively about philosophies of science and the scientific method, from articles published by the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, from famous research papers like Claude Shannon’s a mathematical theory of communication, and from science-history books like Gilder’s The Age of Entanglement. Ultimately, my reading and writing led me to believe that the development of science, in terms of its philosophical foundations, had faltered around the time that quantum mechanics adopted a forever unsatisfying, non-deterministic philosophical underpinning.

To develop my ideas and essay, I dove into reading all available material from Einstein’s early life, and all works associated with his epistemological philosophies, eventually coming to see that the neo-Kantian philosophies that Einstein strategically navigated for the sake of befriending relativity supporters, like Moritz Schlick, despite his distaste for Kant and preference for Hume, was the fracture in the pursuit for a proper philosophy of science that led to the blind-acceptance of the Copenhagen Interpretation. I’m still convinced that “Geometry and Experience” marked the end of a responsible and uncorrupted development of scientific philosophy, and therefore that a revival of academia is dependent on present day learners familiarizing themselves with scientific philosophy up to this point. At the very least, I hope my work will inspire much conversation and debate.

Die Coast by Cecilia

Between 2009 and 2017 I experimented with a unique process for writing fiction and creative-nonfiction that used free-writing in notebooks as the sole process for development, ultimately producing two stories and a series of personal essays. I periodically self-published parts of the work online throughout this era, but after hiring an editorial service to review the full collection and connected themes, I eventually followed their advice and edited the writing into a single novel, fully capturing the outcome of my technique, and the themes that I explored throughout those years in my writing and life. I’m will release Die Coast by Cecilia along with the first collection of books published by Pressure of Light Publishing. Interested readers may want to watch this chapter reading from the original version of the story Coast, this profile of myself and the work that followed an earlier hiring of an editorial service, or this retained episode from a live broadcast series I piloted, but ultimately did not continue. It describes and demonstrates the technique that I used to write all content in Die Coast by Cecilia.
