On Tour: K3+ by Erasmo Acosta









Title: K3+
Author: Erasmo Acosta with Gala Stevenson
Publisher: Erasmix Books
Genre: Dystopian
Pages: 322
Format: Ebook

K3+ is the story of how humanity moved past the unsettling times we live in, to a post-scarcity and purely egalitarian society—absent of fear, uncertainty, inequality, and despair. You might not know it but we already possess many of the key technologies to achieve this. 

Instead of colonizing Mars, the moon, or other celestial bodies humans will build rotating habitats in space. Back in the 1970s, physicist Gerard O’Neill laid the foundation. Today we still call these rotating megastructures, capable of housing millions, O'Neill cylinders. They replicate Earth’s gravity and atmospheric conditions, allowing people to live inside them as comfortably as on our home planet.

Ingenuity solved aging and disease, inequality, climate change, wars, and other predicaments we both created and perpetuated. Not only did humans build billions of rotating habitats around the sun, housing quintillions of souls, they ventured beyond Alpha Centauri to conquer the Milky Way and hundreds of neighboring galaxies outside the Local Group. 

Life is great in a post-scarcity civilization and people live forever in their twenties-looking bodies. Technology makes true telepathy possible, allowing people to exchange thoughts far more efficiently than words. Genetic enhancements and nanotechnology enable these 200-IQ-point beings to achieve extraordinary mental and physical feats. 

In the second chapter, the storyline jumps to the early 21st century where we learn how humans overcame their deeply ingrained planetary bias, which prevented them from seeing the incredible bounty a star like the sun is. After a failed attempt to colonize Mars, inequality and climate change coalesced into a dystopia, triggering a massive human migration to the first O’Neill cylinders. Centuries later, those left on Earth are still struggling and countries begin to collapse due to dwindling population, making the ultimate conflict inevitable.

Erasmo Acosta was born in Cantura, Venezuela, and moved to the United States to pursue a software engineering degree, sponsored by a Silicon Valley software company in 1996. In 2015, Acosta became interested in the implications of the Fermi Paradox on the prospects of finding another civilization within the universe. Further research into Futurism, upcoming technologies, and the works of American physicist Gerard O’Neill, led him to write K3+. The dystopian book explores human migration to rotating habitats in space. He retired to Portland, Oregon, in 2020 after achieving 32 successful years in the software industry

On Tour: The Waves of Life & Our Mind Game by Say Thu Varadewa







  

Inside the Book:





Title: The Waves of Life & Our Mind Game
Author: Say Thu Varadewa
Publisher: Partridge Singapore
Genre: Self-Help/Self-Management
Format: Paperback/Hardcover

Life itself is very simple; we make life complicated as we going through the phases of life. But we have to constantly remind ourselves that every beginning is the hardest. And we cannot control anything whatever happens in our life. But we can train ourselves to be used to the waves of life as it moves up and down just to keep flowing. And we have to realize that nothing is in control, everything happens for a reason. Being contented in life looks impossible, but, we can train our mind to be grateful for what we have. Staying strong and positive is the key to face rough rides of life because we are unaware what might come next in life. I aimed to help people like me who are looking for who they are as a person. It is simple and yet difficult to figure out if there is no proper way to discover one self. Sometimes, you may have everything in life but you are still feeling that something is missing within you. Well, that is exactly the point in life when we need to find our life purpose through self-discovery process. Life is like a big ocean and the ups and downs moments in life are like the waves in the ocean. If there is no up and down moments in life, we will never know who we are, how strong we are and how capable we are. These life waves help us to discover who we are as a person. Keep your journey unique and worthy because it has its own limit. Before the life limit expires, be who you want to be and do what you want to do in life. Inspire people around you to be better version of themselves and encourage people to be kind towards each other to create a beautiful world for everyone to live in.
