Well known example of reciprocal situations: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, a world where everything is permitted... and 1984 by George Orwell, a world where everything is forbidden... but the two books end both in the same way!
(Caution that the third part of «1984» contains torture scenes.)
Everyone must read the small appendix
of «1984» on the criminal mind manipulation method called «novlangue»,
consisting in distorting the meaning of a word so that important life concepts
become unreachable or ununderstandable.
Example1: to say «communication» to mean «advertising». After, how to speak of real communication?
Example2: to say «utopist» to mean «impossible». After, how to speak of hope and social projects?

Astounding true stories of reincarnation of Tibetan Lamas in the West:
Reincarnation: The Boy Lama by Vickie Mackensie. (Informations are spreading as what this child more or less refused the rôle of lama set for him. In facts, today an adult, it is voluntarily that he returned to the FPMT, to play an important rôle here.)
Reborn in the West, The reincarnation by Vickie Mackensie.
I indicate these resources for their interest, but without any waranty on their content that I do not control. (and which can be modified without my notice)
(January 1st 2013) I created these pages in the beginning of the Internet, when we had to «surf on the web» to find sites. Then came Google and others, which made this search miraculously simple. So, for ten years I did not really updated these pages... However, since some years, I note that relevant sites are less and less visible in these search engines, hidden by an increasing number of verbiage pages supported by powerful financial means. And surreptitiously, the vital network of links which formed «the web» has disappeared: we no more control Internet! So I say to everybody:
TO EXIST ON THE INTERNET, LINK AND BE LINKED!
Then I put these pages back in action.
Do not hesitate to create links toward these pages, or to tell me interesting links.
