Isuru Abeysinghe Hitler's autobiographical book Mein Kampf, the official doctrine of the NAZI regime during WWII, is not a book that many would consider to read. Modern society is generally very well acquainted with Hitler and the ultimate outcome of his philosophical stances and will automatically denounce such notions based on a purely humanitarian and moral standpoint. The book remains illegal in many parts of the world (particularly Europe) and it rightfully considered one of the most powerful, destructive and divisive doctrines in modern history. While the book is often confronting in it's content it is still to my opinion an essential read because contained therein are the techniques of a master manipulator. It shows clearly that the doctrine of genocide-inducing hatred is not always - or even generally - a chaotic ramble of spiteful extremist verses but rather a considered and deliberate propagandist argument, one which at many points seems benign and even agreeable and always poses a compelling emotional narrative.
Isuru Abeysinghe The first book analyzed the early parts of the book within the context of logical deconstruction. This second book continues to consider the work of Hitler but this time on a physiological level. The book described Hitler's main theories and driving ideas which led to the rise of the NAZI regime surrounding the second world war.
Isuru Abeysinghe A scientific theory about the possibility of an afterlife from an atheist perspective. This short and concise document deals within the realm of observable science and basic mathematics to argue that all humans are inherantly immortal. This work brings together the principals of statistical opportunity, chaos theory, set theory and recent discoveries about the big bang to present an argument that is both philosophical and scientific - without resorting to any mythological or supernatural assumptions.
Isuru Abeysinghe Deals with my personal journey with the illness and what I have learnt from a personal perspective to be effective practical and philosophical strategies in dealing with the illness. It can give others suffering from the disease and well as people who have been around them with some insight into the illness.
Isuru Abeysinghe Examines the application of genetic algorithms in order to solve technical problems. Provides a working case study of a robotic spider and how it can learn to walk without being instructed in physics or explicitly programmed to perform that function.
Isuru Abeysinghe A synopsis of the most important things I have understood during a decade in the software development industry. Essential attitudes and skills to becoming a highly effective software developer in a variety of organisational environments.
Isuru Abeysinghe Examines the fundamental causes of brutality, atrocities and extremism in the world in both a historical and contemporary context. Purports the theory that all causes of extremism stem from two main contributing factors - the desire for purity or the desire for revenge. Various conflicts are categorized into the general categories of purity-based extremism: racial, religious and political as well as an examination of conflict scenarios that revolve around revenge and cyclic retribution.
Isuru Abeysinghe The year is 2250.Post holocaust.Humanity's once expansive civilizations have been laid to waste, a victim of their own innovations, desires and foolhardy concepts of progress. The first cataclysm was an ideological war between factions who, although adhered to largely the same principals and structure, were separated by a rift in mythology and scripture. This was syntax, not semantics. However, those at the top knew that this rift was simply a front, since the real situation concerning mankind was that of overpopulation and the dwindling of resources. As it is politically incorrect to fight wars based on the simple principal of supply and demand, increasing extremism on both sides and the polarizations of the so called ideologies were pumped to the masses as the sole reason for their respective struggles.Despite this lack, technology continued to advance on both sides, spurred on by the real and present danger of being subjugated and persecuted should the other side win. Atrocities piled on top of atrocities and a complete ban on communication meant that the separate civilizations eventually no longer considered the other side as human.However, the war was not the cause.To sustain the ever increasing need for resources, scientists had long since pulled out the safeguards and checkpoints that regulated the progress of technology. Thus, a combination of genetic mutations, caused by medical advances that cured diseases through altering DNA and rouge nano-machines that had also evolved, mechanically as opposed to biologically, to wreak havoc on the balance of nature and topple of human being from the top of the predatory pyramid on Earth.Now the expanses of the globe had been rendered largely uninhabitable. To step outside of a protected zone, sealed off by the massive infrastructure projects that isolated humans with their own air, food and water from the majority of the planet would mean certain death.But there was still war.
Isuru Abeysinghe Analyzes the current economic system from a structural perspective, free market principals and proposes a future where robotics and automation are used in place of human labor. How can we have a free market when human labor is highly politicized and rigid? What impact could a AI revolution have on human social structures and what advantages could arise from this possible future?
Isuru Abeysinghe Examines capitalism as a definable concept, in the absence of the various social definitions that encumbers it, detailing it's main successes and failings. Makes a comparison between capitalism and other economic models, demonstrating the main points of difference. Proposes that while capitalism is a powerful and positive mechanism, it should not be applied without due consideration of factors as a general curative for every kind of economic problem.
