DESCRIPTION — A Natural History Biography:

Pet owners rejoice, wildlife enthusiasts curl your toes. Finally a complete picture of these beloved creatures, with all the facts – and photos galore. Often hilarious, at times harrowing, Coati Kingdom charts the story of three orphaned babies caught up in the illegal pet trade in Belize, their rehabilitation and soft release back into the wild and ultimately their creation of a band of coatimundis that now exceeds 80 members.

"It is a true account of the stoic trials given to us by such an extraordinary bunch of social creatures learning to become wild... and then proving to us they could."

Coati Kingdom, a book packed full of fun facts and information about these cute, little monsters, will shock and delight you on every page.

EXCERPT from Chapter Nine:

"It saddens me most of all to think of a male coati's life. They do not run with the band, they live solitary lives and for that reason were once thought by explorers of the ‘New World' centuries ago to be an entirely separate species. They were even classified as such with the suffix “mundi” meaning alone, erroneously stuck on the end of “coati”. The name Coatimundi is thus a misnomer.
To think that a young kid grows up in the band, he learns about love and trust, he plays and snuggles, is adored by his mom and siblings... But then, at barely 18 months of age, his whole life is torn apart by the ego of an alpha male who chases him away, never to be loved again. For that reason I have a special affinity towards my young boys – I can’t help it."

and our Perception of Existence, unraveled

A Philosophy of Science Debate

Book cover entitled: Time's Paradigm, and our perception of existence unraveled.

What is Time? One of the most enduring of questions:

"Time is an ethereal sensation of progress, unlike physical motion, which often obliges us to dismiss time as imagined due to our practical minds. We demand that time be like space, when it is not. Neither are moments the same as mountains, though we wish they were. Unlike space, time has no course, nay, no dimensions we may call upon to devise a direction.

"Time is form. It is an expansion of circumstance holding eternity to account, pushing the past and future apart and stretching eventuality. This perceived reality, our present moment, is our making, without us nothing would be..."
