There´s nothing more interesting than the predictions of how the world will someday end. Many people have contributed various theories as to how this will come about, but none of them are pointing out the obvious: Google is going to be leading the charge toward our demise. In The Transhuman and Occult Apocalypse: How Google Will Solve the Problem of Humanity, author, podcast host, website publisher, and conspiracy theorist Isaac Weishaupt provides unique foresight into what he sees as what could be the tragic error in integrating too much technology into our daily lives. Something as seemingly innocuous as using a smartphone or search engine could have dastardly consequences as shadowy organizations collect personal data for purposes unknown to us. Isaac provides his theories on what precisely these NSA and other data-mining programs could be used for: the digital hell prepared for us by the occult. Learn about pop culture symbolism of this bizarre topic through Katy Perry´s PRISM links and Lil Wayne´s admission to being an alien. Find out why Lady Gaga, Facebook´s Mark Zuckerberg, and Google´s Sergey Brin were all groomed in the same environment. Discover the Google X secret society and mark of the beast symbolism that further justifies this peculiar theory. See how Ray Kurzweil will be the critical mastermind in building this immortal realm for the Illuminati and how they will fulfill their occult goals right under the noses of the apathetic and unsuspecting public. The Tower of Babel is being built right before our eyes, only most of the public is asleep in the wheelhouse and doesn´t see it.

Mo Gawdat is the Vice President of Business Innovation at Google. Applying his superior skills of logic and problem-solving to the issue of happiness, he proposes an equation based on an understanding of how the brain takes in and processes joy and sadness. Then he solves for happy.
In the tradition of The Power of Now and The Art of Happiness, and written by Mo Gawdat, Chief Business Officer at Google [X], this is the first-ever attempt to present the equation for being happy - not just intermittently but as a default state of being.
Solve for Happy is a startlingly original book about creating and maintaining happiness, written by a top Google executive with an engineer´s training and fondness for thoroughly analyzing a problem. In 2004 Mo Gawdat, a remarkable thinker whose gifts had landed him top positions in half a dozen companies and who - in his spare time - had created significant wealth, realized that he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would, examining all the provable facts and scrupulously following logic. When he was finished, he had discovered the equation for enduring happiness. Ten years later that research saved him from despair when his college-age son, Ali - also intellectually gifted - died during routine surgery. In dealing with the loss, Mo found his mission: he would pull off the type of moonshot that he and his Google [X] colleagues were always aiming for - he would help 10 million people become happier by pouring his happiness principles into a book and spreading its message around the world. One of Solve for Happy´s key premises is that happiness is a default state. If we shape expectations to acknowledge the full range of possible events, unhappiness is on its way to being defeated. To steer clear of unhappiness traps, we must dispel the six illusions that cloud our thinking (e.g., the illusion of time, of control, and of fear); overcome the brain´s seven deadly defects (e.g., the tendency to exaggerate, label, and filter); and embrace five ultimate truths (e.g., change is real, now is real, unconditional love is real). By means of several highly original thought experiments, Mo helps listeners find enduring contentment by questioning some of the most fundamental aspects of their existence.

Mo Gawdat is a remarkable thinker and the Chief Business Officer at Google´s [X], an elite team of engineers that comprise Google´s futuristic ´´dream factory.´´ Applying his superior skills of logic and problem solving to the issue of happiness, he proposes an algorithm based on an understanding of how the brain takes in and processes joy and sadness. Then he solves for happy. In 2001 Mo Gawdat realized that despite his incredible success, he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would: examining all the provable facts and scrupulously applying logic. Eventually, his countless hours of research and science proved successful, and he discovered the equation for permanent happiness. Thirteen years later, Mo´s algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden death of his son, Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation—and it saved them from despair. In dealing with the horrible loss, Mo found his mission: he would pull off the type of ´´moonshot´´ goal that he and his colleagues were always aiming for—he would share his equation with the world and help as many people as possible become happier. In Solve for Happy Mo questions some of the most fundamental aspects of our existence, shares the underlying reasons for suffering, and plots out a step-by-step process for achieving lifelong happiness and enduring contentment. He shows us how to view life through a clear lens, teaching us how to dispel the illusions that cloud our thinking; overcome the brain´s blind spots; and embrace five ultimate truths. No matter what obstacles we face, what burdens we bear, what trials we´ve experienced, we can all be content with our present situation and optimistic about the future.

What’s the question every business should be asking itself? According to Jeff Jarvis, it’s What Would Google Do? If you’re not thinking or acting like Google – the fastest-growing company in the history of the world – then you’re not going to survive, let alone prosper, in the Internet age. An indispensable manual for survival and success that asks the most important question today’s leaders, in any industry, can ask themselves: What would Google do? To demonstrate how to emulate Google, Jarvis lays out his laws of what he calls ´´the new Google century”, including such insights as: Think Distributed Become a Platform; Join the Post-Scarcity, Open-Source, Gift Economy; The Middleman Has Died; Your Worst Customers Are Your Best Friends and Your Best Customers Are Your Partners; Do What You Do Best; and Link to the Rest Get Out of the Way; Make Mistakes Well… and More. He applies these principles not just to emerging technologies and the Internet, but to other industries - telecommunications, airlines, television, government, healthcare, education, journalism, and yes, book publishing - showing ultimately what the world would look like if Google ran it. The result is an astonishing, mind-opening book that will change the way listeners ask questions and solve problems. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Jarvis.
