House On The Hill from the Author: Mark Megna. This book is a compilation of the greatest minds and ideas of all time incorporated into one synthesis known as The Glass Bead Game located in The House on the Hill. It is a living I Ching in which to inspire future Magister Ludi (Masters of The Game) to create future artistic and intellectual thoughts of perfection. It not only seeks an answer to the biggest philosophical question of all “why is there anything at all” but more importantly recognizes that” Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty!” The House on the Hill is an illusionary place were potential profound ideas become actualized and realized. It is the unification of philosophy, art, religion, quantum mechanics, science, music, literature, mathematics, and the mind merged into one collective system known as The Glass Bead Game. It is my Metaphysics of Being. What does it mean to be truly free?” Mark Megna

Siddhartha from the Author: Hermann Hesse. Written in a prose of almost biblical simplicity and beauty, it is the story of a soul's long quest in search of the ultimate answer to the enigmaof man's role on this earth. As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha but cannot be content with a disciple's role: he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubt - a tortuous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love affair with the beautiful courtesan Kamala, the temptation of success and riches, the heartache of a strugglewith his own son, to final renunciation and self-knowledge.

El Juego De Abalorios The Glass Bead Game from the Author: Hermann Hesse. Bastien Perrot, experto en musica, dio el nombre de Juego de abalorios a un ejercicio intelectual para el cual utilizaba perlas de vidrio en lugar de signos graficos. Pitagoras, los chinos, los humanistas del Renacimiento, los romanticos, imaginaron una y otra vez ese juego. "Aspiraban -dice Herman Hesse- a encerrar el universo espiritual en circulos concentricos y unir la belleza viviente del arte con la magia de las formulas propuestas por las ciencias exactas." En este relato, el autor imagina un Estado donde impera el Espiritu y cuyo nombre es Castalia, es decir, el pais de la castidad.En el un grupo de jovenes se consagran a la musica, a la astronomia, a las matematicas, con absoluto desden por todo placer carnal. En el centro de ellos, Joseph Knecht, representante de Ia orden laica de Castalia, ensena a los benedictinos el "juego de abalorios," entablando relaciones con la orden religiosa dirigida por un historiador, que de ese modo lo introduce en el seno mismo de la ciencia historica. Sera la Historia la encargada de demostrar que Castalia no puede ser eterna; el dinamismo del mundo exterior chocara irremediablemente contra la perfeccion inmovil del casto pais. Entonces se volveran mas reales las profeticas palabras de los poemas de Knecht: "Debernos ir alegres por la tierra/ sin aferrarnos nunca como a una patria; / el espiritu no quiere encadenarse.../ solo quien esta pronto para irse/ puede escapar al habito que mata."
