Hand and Heart

By: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

Mother, I should so like to have a great deal of money, said little Tom Fletcher one evening, as he sat on a low stool by his mother's knee. His mother was knitting busily by the firelight, and they had both been silent for some time. What would you do with a great deal of money, if you had it? Oh! I don't know—I would do a great many things. But should not you like to have a great deal of money, mother? persisted he. Perhaps I should, answered Mrs. Fletcher. I am like y...

Dark Matter as a Quantum Foam In-Flow Effect

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Here it is explained as a self-interaction dynamical effect of space itself, and so is not caused by an unknown form of matter. Because it was based on Kepler?s Laws for the motion of the planets in the solar system the Newtonian theory of gravity was too restricted. A reformulation and generalization of the Newtonian theory of gravity in terms of a velocity in-flo...

The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte

By: Harriet Martineau

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Chapter VII. The best way of proving that my principle of social development will ultimately regenerate social science, is to show that it affords a perfect interpretation of the past of human society,?at least in its principal phases.
