ibiblio-May flowers bring m.e.n.t.a.l.h.e.a.l.t.h. to ibiblio!

1839 E. A. POE Fall House of Usher in Burton's Gentleman's Mag. Sept. 150: "And now, some days of bitter grief having elapsed, an observable change came over the features of the mental disorder of my friend."
1847 C. BRONTË Jane Eyre III. i. 21: "I resolved to be clean in my own sight and to the last I repudiated the contamination of her crimes, and wrenched myself from connexion with her mental defects."
-Oxford English Dictionary online

May is Mental Health Month. Let the resources of ibiblio guide you to brighter days.

InnerPeace - Free Self-Help Software

A sign of inner peace
"Welcome to Inner Peace, free self-counseling software for inner peace Imagine your life with more inner peace. What would that be like? Imagine it as fully as you can." What we wouldn't all do for a little inner peace, especially in these times of trouble and strife. Well brothers and sisters, I think we've got the answer for you.

Buddhism - Metaxu

Metaxu Buddhism symbol
Perhaps an exploration of eastern spiritualism is in order? The Metaxu site is a collection of information on Buddhism, with a focus on the Gelukpa sect of Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism. Some information on Hinduism is also included, with the thought that Hinduism is the background of Buddhism. There is also information included on the country of Mongolia, whose unique relationship with Tibet enabled Buddhism to survive.

Mind Uploading Home Page

Mind Uploading
Perhaps it's your body, not your mind, which is holding you back. The Mind Uploading home page is dedicated to the putative future process of copying one's mind from the natural substrate of the brain into an artificial one, manufactured by humans. This technology will radically alter society in many ways, as science fiction authors have begun to illustrate. Through this server, explore the science behind the science fiction!


When the laboring masses here at ibiblio need to get away from the stresses of managing the public's library and digital archive, we often head to our little garden out back for some quality time in the dirt. So soothing. Rec.gardens.ecosystems is a Usenet newsgroup intended for the discussion of gardening topics from an ecological perspective. In "down to earth" language, this means trying to work in concert with nature, rather than trying to force it into a rigid format.

Metaphysical Monkeywork: Philosophy

The Metaphysical Monkey
Perhaps you just need to stretch your mind a bit. Explore Metaphysical Monkeywork, which features essays on the analytic philosophy of science, language, mind, epistemology and metaphysics. Includes the article "Towards a Physicalist Theory of Minds," which defends a broadly physicalist theory of the mental against problems raised in Quale arguments. Indeed.

Shree Ram Sharnam

Shree Ram Sharnam
"Here is then a godsend opportunity for those hapless souls who have all this while yearned for a few drops of the nectar of pure spirituality. The hallmark of the Satsangs initiated and blessed by the venerable Swami Satyanandji Maharaj is the complete absence of ostentation's and pretensions. Not expected to make any offerings, the 'Sadhak' comes to the Satsang with the sole objective of seeking inner peace and higher spiritual attainments. And, surely, endowed and blessed thus with everlasting ecstasy does he return to the world again!"

Life Patterns

Life Patterns image
"The Game of Life (or simply Life) is not a game in the conventional sense. There are no players, and no winning or losing. Once the "pieces" are placed in the starting position, the rules determine everything that happens later. Nevertheless, Life is full of surprises! In most cases, it is impossible to look at a starting position (or pattern) and see what will happen in the future. The only way to find out is to follow the rules of the game."-Math.com
