A fantastic list of books. I have a few of them in my library already and I plan to add many, many more. 
 
Our second list of books for the "Manual for Civilization" library comes from Long Now co-founder +Stewart Brand. He selects more than 70 books ranging from the Epic of Gilgamesh to recent science fiction and a 15,000 year survey of climate's relationship with humanity. It makes for great reading. You'd better get started.

Life is interesting when you doubt the accuracy of your conscious mind.

Dense, heart-rending, philosophically challenging. Great essay on freedom, identity, human spirit, and the idea that pain unleashes the 'real self'.

I am really looking forward to visiting this. 
 
The idea is to build  a bar inside a library. A library that holds books on how to build, rebuild, and maintain a civilization. The 3,000 volume library is called the Manual for Civilization. The books are a backdrop to conversations that take place in this salon facilitated by aged alcohol and tea. Members of this salon (which is open to the public) can keep a bottle of drink, or a canister of tea, on a shelf, and the drink will be brought down and served on your behalf. The other half of this space is a small museum of parts of the 10,000-year clock which is being built to tick inside a mountain in western Texas. This one-of-a-kind hangout place is called the Interval, and it is being built right next to Greens restaurant in Fort Mason, San Francisco. The Interval is project by the Long Now Foundation (I am a board member) to foster long-term thinking. I have a liter of Puer tea on hold when it is done. I hope to meet you there one evening. If you'd like to join as a member, sign up below. BTW, the drink keep (inspired by the Japanese local bar) is a great idea for those who don't live in San Francisco, but occasionally visit.

What is the speed of thought? How does this affect message comprehension? Great article with lots of food for thought.

Introduction
A geek from birth, Scott’s youth was filled with LEGO, cryptography, D&D and Colecovision. His desire for adventure saw him sailing schooners and crewing a barquentine across the Atlantic ocean. He ran a DJ company before his omnivorous mind lead him to study biology, law, art history, film, German and media arts.
