+ - TROM EBOOKS INFO

TROM ebooks are available in multiple formats: online reading (flash, HTML5), PDF, Plain Text (google docs), audio format, and video. Please keep in mind that the PDF is still in beta so there might be errors with this format. We recommend reading the books online. Also, please note that we just started to make audiobooks and videos out of these ebooks, so most ebooks won't be available in these formats because of that. More than that, the audio and video versions of TROM ebooks are slightly different from the ebooks themselves (we may add new video materials, interviews, excerpts from videos, etc. for these versions - and they will lack the full extent of links and videos from the main online format of ebooks). Despite all of that, all formats are similar to the ebook they represent. One last thing, empty buttons mean that they are not 'functional' (those formats are not available). Because it takes a long time to make these books in audio and video formats we made separate pages for them all so that anyone can keep track of them more easily: TROM Video Series (the videos) - and TROM AudioBooks.

+ - LANGUAGE: PART4

Year: 2017 / Author: Tio

The only reason we can communicate with each other is because we are the same biologically and we live in a similar world (from the physical world to the cultural one). In this part we argue that language is all about the context. Not the words, not the syntax, but the context. We look at how or if we can achieve communication with creatures who do not share some of our context: people who lack senses, people from widely different cultures, animals, and even aliens. We will also look at the idea of language influencing the way we think because that’s a very delicious proposal.

+ - LANGUAGE: PART3

Year: 2017 / Author: Tio

This time we will showcase why talking about language and trying to improve ‘it’, is not only a good idea, but a necessary one. Before I prove it to you let me just say that even if we were able to build a worldwide saner society where people have access to whatever they need and want without any trade involved, and this society is ‘educated’ and so forth, language would pose a ton of issues to everyone out there if it is left in the present state, and because of that people would die, scientific research would be massively slowed down, and overall many humans would live a miserable life. The danger lies in the fact that languages, whichever ones, are poorly constructed, but that’s not the main issue, the main issue is with the fact that there are so many languages out there.

+ - LANGUAGE: PART2

Year: 2016 / Author: Tio

In this second part of our ongoing book on language we explore the messiness of language, the religiosity of it, the evolution, and overall what influences language to change or to stagnate. You might be surprised to learn that technology might make us more separate from one another when it comes to language, or that in fact there is no language out there...Hard to believe? Then give this article a try!

+ - LANGUAGE: PART1

Year: 2016 / Author: Tio

We are starting our journey of understanding ‘language’ with a big, fluffy article on how writing styles emerged and how they work today.  We will look at how languages around the world define both actions and ‘stuff’, how they build sentences, what verbs and nouns and other such ‘spicy’ things really are, and overall, how written language is widely different from how we talk.  This massive article will be the bedrock for those to follow in this series, because understanding how today’s written languages work (from English to Chinese or Romanian), we will be able to consider better ways of improving communication.  Mind you, language is what you use to describe yourself, and the world.  So understanding “it” may very well allow you to better understand yourself and the world around you.

+ - PERSPECTIVE: PRIVATE MOUTHS

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

What would it be like if (humans) people on another planet grew up thinking of mouths the way that we think about genitalia?  Let’s see…  Disclaimer Warning: Due to its content, this article may include a number of ‘obscene’ photos, so please be aware of that!  🙂

+ - HUMAN VS/AND/PART MACHINE

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

In this special book we will look at how tools that humans invented surpass humans on many levels, how they are part of what humans are, and also why the distinction between human-made tools (the machines) and ourselves (biological creatures) is blurry.  We will try to replace all body parts with mechanical ones, will look at nanobots, how we can extend our senses and how do we hear or see, what artificial intelligence is (machine learning, neural networks, etc.), what supercomputers can do today, why stem cells are so important, and basically we will look at nearly 'everything' related to humans and robots and their relationship.

+ - THE PROBLEM WITH 'MENTAL ILLNESSES'

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

You might often hear about depression, ADHD, or any kind of ‘mental disorders’ as being a properly defined ‘thing’, and that there are even ‘cures’ for them.  In our book on psychology, we argued that mental ‘disorders’ may not be a properly defined and understood aspect of psychology, but let’s suppose that they are.  Even if it proves true and they are shown to be similar to biological diseases, there are big problems with the way humans currently approach this situation today.  I will try to exemplify this focusing on cancer.

+ - EATING THE WORLD AND OURSELVES

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

Eating is something that we have to do for both energy and mass.  No eat - no life; it’s as simple as that. But what do we eat? What is the impact of what we eat on our health and the environment? We look at all that in this article.

+ - EARTH

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

We are ‘glued’ to a huge sphere by gravity, protected by a 62 mile (100 km) ‘blanket’ of particles that we call ‘our atmosphere’.  We orbit one of the billions of stars in our galaxy, which is one galaxy among billions of others in, perhaps, just one of many universes out there. We explore the amazing connection to the Earth, its places, creatures and events in a 200+ pages special issue full of great images and extraordinary videos.

+ - THE 'SUCCESS' OF PRISONS

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

We will not look back over history with this article, but at the present, to highlight one such ideology that dominates today’s ‘justice’ systems all over the world: Prisons.  We will show you why this approach is not working, how it has been turned into a profit machine, and how many people of all ages suffer because of it, all as part of a cyclical waste of resources, energy, and humans, along with all of their potentials. But we will also look at what it can be done to change this situation.

+ - COMPETITION AND COOPERATION....

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

What drives people to… well, do something? Some insist that people are born competitive, some say that cooperation is better for learning and progress, some suggest that what really motivates people is autonomy, mastery and purpose. But what if we are being blinded by the language we’re using and none of these are true, or maybe they all are, or could it be much more complex than that? In this article, we will try to look more closely at these notions, and also to try to understand what is meant by ‘curiosity’.

+ - THE 'PURPOSE' OF EVOLUTION...

Year: 2015 / Author: Tio

If there is one scientific theory that has been completely misunderstood by the general public, or at least severely twisted when explained by many, it would be the process of transmutation (what many call ‘evolution’), and this process has been romanticized and mysticized so much that it may qualify as the most ‘purpose’-infected scientific theory of all time.
