3rd August 2005 - Vertical Journey

It took me very little time to read "Vertical Journey" by Brian Germain. This captivating and colorful book is truly a must read for everyone who is interested in the FreeFly discipline or just skydiving in general. In particular, I like the meditative mindset which seems to have conceived the book. In Brian’s words FreeFly is truly a liberating experience of both body and mind, it is a place to have fun while at the same time seek perfection between the element, the body and the mind.

"True flight is not a conscious premeditated event; the product of calculations and wind-tunnels. - It is an inspirational improvisation that sets the spirit free, unbridled by intellect. Let the bird in you take over. You are the eagle."

Brian Germain

While giving skydiving the meditative dimension, Brian also gives concrete guidance into most common maneuvers as well as some extremely relevant tips for safety and survival. This is simply a book that inspires on the personal level and makes you want to go skydive!

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
