FARMING FOR FREEDOM being an Attempt to Motivate and Inspire Those who Feel Trapped with Reference to our own Journey to Freedom, or an Occasionally Amusing Collection of Tips and Tricks for Those Who Already Feel Alive and Free
I'm still writing it so I can't actually guarantee it will be good yet. I'm not even sure I should be the one judging how good it is. That should probably be up to the readers rather than the writer. Either way, I'm definitely writing a book about our experiences and solutions that isn't going to be anywhere near as angry as my other book.
THE INTENT OF MANwith Reference to Mortality, or The Evolutionary Implications of the Need to Feel Significant
The other book I'd sort of like to write would be about the biology of knowing you're going to die (Terror Management Theory). What happens to biological selection when the survival instinct meets the reality of death? Does it create a need to feel significant, a need to be remembered, a need to leave a legacy? Is that what drives "progress" and all the other forms of human "exceptionalism"?
I reckon we need to add legacy selection, or the need to compete with others for enduring significance, to natural selection and sex selection as mechanisms of evolution, but I've probably got as much chance of convincing anybody with a whole book as I have with this short paragraph. Motivated reasoning is way more powerful than reasoned reasoning, unfortunately. You never know though, so if any publishers are interested in a challenging book that almost nobody will read and even fewer will like please get in touch. It would certainly make me feel more significant.
On THE DESTINY OF SPECIESby Means of Selection, or The Elimination of Unfavoured Races in the Struggle for Life
I'd love to rewrite this one too, so it's less, well, sh!t I guess.
