January 10, 2011 (Newswire.com) - Explorer, scientist and Jacksonville, Florida author, Bruce Nappi, has just released two volumes of his new book series LIARS! The books present over 40 major discoveries that answer many of the most critical unanswered questions of the ages, including why we have so much chaos and strife in modern society. Difficult psychological and philosophical discoveries are explained using everyday language in a readable, exciting novel format. The discoveries affect every part of our culture, making the books interesting and valuable reading for everyone who seeks understanding and improvement for today's society.
Human psychology is the result of eons of evolutionary brain development which preceded human civilization. That psychology was refined to optimize primitive hunting, gathering and reproductive traits in the face of extreme competitive and environmental pressures. The inability of modern society to accept this leads to most of the social disruption we now witness in the world.
Earlier societies were much more aware of this problem. They codified human failures with a principle we now call the SEVEN DEADLY SINS. Unfortunately, modern society, blinded by conflicting moral edicts from hundreds of religions, failed to rationally address these faults in the fundamental principles used to create governments and world cultures. The result is that the world's social structures are predominantly filled with contradictory logic. To achieve any coordinated social action at all, language has evolved based on a pattern Nappi calls SINGLE SENTENCE LOGIC - "sound bites" in media terminology. Unfortunately, single sentence logic, driven by human seven deadly sins psychology, results in a pervasive pattern of lies found in every part of human society. The books address these concepts in detail and suggest how society can escape the resulting tragedy.
The books -- LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity -- are based on Nappi's experience as one of the Eagle Scouts on the 1965 North Pole Expedition. They present an "Atlas Shrugged" philosophical romp through a 3 Stooges run government research world, challenging the most fundamental beliefs of human culture. The coming of age saga is filled with amazing true-life adventures expanded by the insights of 40 years in the rough and tumble world of high tech business intrigue. A life threatening climax in volume 2 finally creates a setting to pull together all the wisdom and lay out a broad and comprehensive explanation for many of the problems modern society can't seem to understand.
Ultimately, the reader will learn how public statements claiming to represent broad "public opinion", are predominantly the voice of a small elite minority intent on maintaining superiority. Mankind's greatest social institutions: government, religion, science, education, law, medicine, and even the U.S. Constitution, are challenged and shown to be corrupt. A unified structure emerges which becomes the basis for a new social structure for mankind.
About Bruce Nappi
Bruce Nappi is founder and president of the A3 Society and author of the books LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity. An award winning scholar, he graduated from MIT with both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Astronautics ( yes, a true MIT rocket scientist ). As an engineer and manager, he used his multi-disciplined technical background to develop leading edge products in medicine, optics, production systems, military systems, and automated testing. His resume is filled with breakthroughs like: the first fully automated system to fabricate dental crowns; fastest DNA sequencing machine in the world (1990); first 512 sensor solid state array for measuring muscle contractions; first infrared fiber optic probe for direct measurement of human blood chemistry; first practical solution for content addressable memory which can speed up computer processing over a thousand times. He is currently Administrative Director for CSESaR, the Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research, University of Florida, College of Medicine, Jacksonville, Florida.
Throughout his career, he was dismayed by repeated failures of society to draw on even a fraction of the technical advances available. He was greatly disturbed that, even with ever-growing technical capabilities, the number of poor and starving kept increasing while great wealth continued to concentrate in the hands of a few. When modern communications opened the door to participative democracy, western governments, waving the banner of democracy, hypocritically established legal barriers to keep government decisions in the hands of special interests and legislative aristocrats. This led to his lifelong quest that produced the discoveries presented in the book series LIARS! The A3 Society was founded to promote those discoveries through education. His work is summarized online at A3society.org. The books are available at http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/Nappi
