Twenty-five years ago one could list by name the tiny number of multiple personalities recorded in the history of Western medicine, but today hundreds of people receive treatment for dissociative disorders in every sizable town in North America. Clinicians, backed by a grassroots movement of patients and therapists, find child sexual abuse to be the primary cause of the illness, while critics accuse the "MPD" community of fostering false memories of childhood trauma. Here the distinguished philosopher Ian Hacking uses the MPD epidemic and its links with the contemporary concept of child abuse to scrutinize today's moral and political climate, especially our power struggles about memory and our efforts to cope with psychological injuries. What is it like to suffer from multiple personality? Most diagnosed patients are women: why does gender matter? How does defining an illness affect the behavior of those who suffer from it? And, more generally, how do systems of knowledge about kinds of people interact with the people who are known about? Answering these and similar questions, Hacking explores the development of the modern multiple personality movement. He then turns to a fascinating series of historical vignettes about an earlier wave of multiples, people who were diagnosed as new ways of thinking about memory emerged, particularly in France, toward the end of the nineteenth century. Fervently occupied with the study of hypnotism, hysteria, sleepwalking, and fugue, scientists of this period aimed to take the soul away from the religious sphere. What better way to do this than to make memory a surrogate for the soul and then subject it to empirical investigation? Made possible by these nineteenth-century developments, the current outbreak of dissociative disorders is embedded in new political settings. Rewriting the Soul concludes with a powerful analysis linking historical and contemporary material in a fresh contribution to the archaeology of knowledge. As Foucault once identified a politics that centers on the body and another that classifies and organizes the human population, Hacking has now provided a masterful description of the politics of memory : the scientizing of the soul and the wounds it can receive.

The main segment of structure of Homo sapiens psyche is an individual program, with which a person is born. Knowledge of the natural human program, allows you to find out what a person is like without masks (real), true motives, which drive him, what he is hiding, and what he really wants. This is called "hacking the soul." Other types of "hacking" are children's toys, so to speak, "for the poor." We understand that you have been dreaming of such a tool for "hacking;" however, the fact that this tool became available also means that now anyone can hack your soul (psyche) as well. Your soul is now public domain; or, to be more precise, it is a public place, which now anyone can enter without invitation and without your permission. You think that this is impossible and that it is nothing more than another horoscope? Well, well. It is characteristic of a human to draw conclusions according to the principle of an analogy, when the conclusion about an object gets built on the basis of its similarity to another object. In itself, this method of learning about the world is not bad, but in some situations, such as this one, it does not work. The reason is that in this civilization there is nothing equivalent, of equal value or similar to the ancient source of knowledge, which turned out to be the Catalog of human population. Due to this, probably, it is pointless to try to compare the Catalog to something familiar. Another question is that fans of horoscopes could draw a different parallel and, for example, compare the Catalog of human population to encyclopedias about animals or plants, the periodic table, which describes the chemical elements, or an anatomical atlas. However, such comparisons usually do not come to minds of average people, as they are not familiar with the periodic table and anatomical atlases, do not study encyclopedias of plants and animals, and are familiar only with horoscopes, numerological descriptions of individuals, and psychological descriptions from popular glossy magazines. This is the difference between average people and those, who are involved in scientific research. Scientific research work requires a higher level of education and general knowledge about the world, on open mind, and completely other interests. People involved in scientific research usually do not study horoscopes. We think that all this is not our problem. We adhere to the position that any person has the right to try to fence himself off from the fact that the Catalog of human population exists and tell himself that descriptions from this Catalog are similar to another horoscope. Any person has the right to try to fence himself off from the fact that he is a bio-robot and tell himself that Shan Hai Jing is a fantasy of the ancients. Any person has the right to consider us, developers of the Catalog of human population, the next oddballs, who are telling about that what they thought-up due to their desire to appear original. We do not object to this. However, there is one "but"—these people are the ones, who will suffer from such actions. And, we will explain in this book why this is so in great detail and with examples. However, most importantly, this book presents 100 short demos of natural human programs, which show who people are real, without masks, social roles and idiotic self-presentations. Whether you should believe this or not—is not a question to us. We do not use the tool called "faith" because we prefer knowledge. If some of our readers have the same position in life, then in this book we provide them with a chance not to trust, but to test and to draw a conclusion about whether the Catalog of human population exists or not for themselves. We have nothing to offer to apologists of faith; like in the saying, we think that "Seppuku is a private matter of each samurai."

"Explores how industry has manipulated our most deep-seated survival instincts."—David Perlmutter, MD, Author, #1 New York Times bestseller, Grain Brain and Brain Maker The New York Times–bestselling author of Fat Chance reveals the corporate scheme to sell pleasure, driving the international epidemic of addiction, depression, and chronic disease. While researching the toxic and addictive properties of sugar for his New York Times bestseller Fat Chance, Robert Lustig made an alarming discovery—our pursuit of happiness is being subverted by a culture of addiction and depression from which we may never recover. Dopamine is the “reward” neurotransmitter that tells our brains we want more; yet every substance or behavior that releases dopamine in the extreme leads to addiction. Serotonin is the “contentment” neurotransmitter that tells our brains we don’t need any more; yet its deficiency leads to depression. Ideally, both are in optimal supply. Yet dopamine evolved to overwhelm serotonin—because our ancestors were more likely to survive if they were constantly motivated—with the result that constant desire can chemically destroy our ability to feel happiness, while sending us down the slippery slope to addiction. In the last forty years, government legislation and subsidies have promoted ever-available temptation (sugar, drugs, social media, porn) combined with constant stress (work, home, money, Internet), with the end result of an unprecedented epidemic of addiction, anxiety, depression, and chronic disease. And with the advent of neuromarketing, corporate America has successfully imprisoned us in an endless loop of desire and consumption from which there is no obvious escape. With his customary wit and incisiveness, Lustig not only reveals the science that drives these states of mind, he points his finger directly at the corporations that helped create this mess, and the government actors who facilitated it, and he offers solutions we can all use in the pursuit of happiness, even in the face of overwhelming opposition. Always fearless and provocative, Lustig marshals a call to action, with seminal implications for our health, our well-being, and our culture.

Today our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our bodies are out of kilter. We know it, but we tend to ignore it until something brings us up short – a worrying diagnosis, a broken relationship, or simply an inability to function harmoniously in everyday life. When things are a little off, we read a self-help book. When they’re really bad, we bring in oncologists to address cancer, neurologists to repair the brain, psychologists to help us understand our family of origin. But this fragmented approach to health is merely a stopgap. To truly heal, we need to return to the original recipe for wellness discovered by shamans millennia ago: One Spirit Medicine. Through One Spirit Medicine, the shamans found that they could grow a new body that allowed them to live in extraordinary health. They learned how to switch off the “death clock” inside every cell, and turn on the “immortality” genes that reside in password-protected regions of our DNA. Cancer, dementia, and heart disease were rare. The shamans of old were truly masters of prevention. Drawing on more than 25 years of experience as a medical anthropologist – as well as his own journey back from the edge of death – acclaimed shamanic teacher Alberto Villoldo shows you how to detoxify the brain and gut with superfoods; techniques for working with our luminous energy fields to heal your body; and follow the ancient path of the medicine wheel to shed disempowering stories from the past and pave the way for rebirth. Using the principles and practices in this book, you can feel better in a few days, begin to clear your mind and heal your brain in a week, and in six weeks be on your way to a new body – one that heals rapidly, retains its youthful vitality, and keeps you connected to Spirit, to the earth, and to a renewed sense of purpose in your life.

Programmable matter is probably not the next technological revolution, nor even perhaps the one after that. But it's coming, and when it does, it will change our lives as much as any invention ever has. Imagine being able to program matter itself-to change it, with the click of a cursor, from hard to soft, from paper to stone, from fluorescent to super-reflective to invisible. Supported by organizations ranging from Levi Strauss and IBM to the Defense Department, solid-state physicists in renowned laboratories are working to make it a reality. In this dazzling investigation, Wil McCarthy visits the laboratories and talks with the researchers who are developing this extraordinary technology, describes how they are learning to control it, and tells us where all this will lead. The possibilities are truly astonishing.
