Twenty years ago, noted psychiatrist and dream researcher, Ernest Hartmann, developed the concept of 'boundaries' as a dimension of personality. With his new book, Boundaries: A New Way to Look at the World, Hartmann extends the boundaries concept beyond the individual and into the world at large. How do boundaries affect our dreams, and is there a biological connection? What happens to boundaries when countries or individuals are threatened? Can boundaries help us understand terrorism, world peace or international relations? What about art, science, philosophy and religion - can boundaries affect them as well? Hartmann addresses each topic in accessible language, one chapter at a time, in a book that broadens our understanding of the outside world while deepening our understanding of ourselves. 213 pages. Index, references.

The Other side of the Magic show of Life This world is a magic show! In this show, certain truths can only be understood through pure repeated observation. Aworldly drama is going on which you witness every day.The events happening in our daily lives are part of the drama going on in the world. When we learn the art of witnessing this drama from the background of the stage,we learn towitness life from the other side of thoughts. What is this other aspect? How does it change your perspective? The practice of meditation teaches you to see the world from a different point of view––a perspective of totality. This transcript is a rendering from Sirshree’s discourse which explains this aspect of meditation with the help of an effective analogy. It expounds some ways to see from the other perspective, a point of view from where you usually do not see the world.

One dealer's journey from the populist mayhem of flea markets to the rarefied realm of auctions reveals the rich, often outrageous subculture of antiques and collectibles. Millions of Americans are drawn to antiques and flea-market culture, whether as participants or as viewers of the perennially popular Antiques Roadshow or the recent hit American Pickers. This world has the air of a lottery: a $20 purchase might net you four, five, or six figures. Master dealer Curt Avery, the unlikely star of Killer Stuff and Tons of Money, plays that lottery every day, and he wins it more than most. Occasionally he gets lucky, but more often, he draws on a deep knowledge of America's past and the odd, fascinating, and beautiful objects that have survived it. Week in, week out, Avery trawls the flea and antiques circuit-buying, selling, and advising other dealers in his many areas of expertise, from furniture to glass to stoneware, and more. On the surface, he's an improbable candidate for an antiques dealer. He wrestled in high school and still retains the pugilistic build; he is gruff, funny, and profane; he favors shorts and sneakers, even in November; and he is remarkably generous toward both competitors and customers who want a break. But as he struggles for a spot in a high-end Boston show, he must step up his game and, perhaps more challenging, fit in with a white-shoe crowd. Through his ascent, we see the flea-osphere for what it truly is-less a lottery than a contact sport with few rules and many pitfalls. This rich and sometimes hilarious subculture rewards peculiar interests and outright obsessions-one dealer specializes in shrunken heads; another wants all the postal memorabilia he can get. So Avery must be a guerrilla historian and use his hard-earned knowledge of America's past to live by and off his wits. Only the smartest survive in one of America's most ruthless meritocracies. Killer Stuff and Tons of Money is many things: an insider's look at a subculture replete with arcane traditions and high drama, an inspiring account of a self-made man making his way in a cutthroat field, a treasure trove of tips for those who seek out old things themselves, and a thoroughly fresh, vibrant view of history as blood sport.
