THE DHARMA CAVE
The Dragon's Lair

c. Evil Wisdom is a compilation of the very finest works of deadly Eastern wisdom. Included are the Bhagavad Gita, the Dhammapada, the Heart Sutra, and the Tao Te Ching, as well as writings of Meister Eckhart, the magnificent Gospel of Thomas, teachings of Diogenes, awesome teachings of the Zen Master Hakuin, and the timeless Avadhuta Gita.
d. Essays on Illogic and Unreason is a collection of essays exposing new-age nonsense by contributors from around the globe.
2. Male and Female Psychology
a. Woman - all it is unwise to know about her.
This is absolutely the bravest compilation of writings about women there has ever been. And I owe them to many brave souls. To say these writings are dangerous would be an understatement. For the first time, read from the experiences of the masters, and learn all it is unwise to know about women. This compilation includes works of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, and Freud. There are also memorable writings from the Buddhist and Hindu philosophers, and more.

b. Sex and Character by Otto Weininger
This book is one of the few masterpieces of modern times. Here, Weininger overflows with profound insight, deepest love, and awesome courage. To quote the eloquent author of an old book:
SAMPLE from Sex & Character
We have all come under the spell of Otto Weininger, even those of us who have never heard of him, for he was one of those geniuses whose ideas echo far beyond any sound that is made by their names. . .
. . . "Sex & Character" began to sell. It ran through printing after printing. It was translated into innumerable languages, and in a few years his publishers could declare with no more than pardonable exaggeration that no scientific book in the whole history of books had ever a greater success.

c. Woman not inferior to man, by Sophia The authorship of Woman Not Inferior to Man, a pioneer feminist tract, has been attributed to Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. It gives proof enough that feminism hasn't advanced one inch over the last few hundred years. If anything, modern day feminism is even more embarrassing.
d. Man Superior to Woman In response to Sophia's treatise, an anonymous gentleman published Man Superior to Woman, which became a best-seller of its time. This book alone proves beyond any doubt that the level of intelligence of our species has declined drastically over the last couple of hundred years.

e. An Exposition for the Advanced Mind by David Quinn is a detailed investigation into the psychology of the sexes.
f. The Cow Te Ching (The Cow and its Characteristics) (Complete) is a recently inspired scripture which may eclipse the great Chinese scripture The Tao Te Ching. It deals primarily with an issue not dealt with at length by other scriptures, namely the issue of Woman.
g. The Book of Wife (Complete) is an inspired and understanding look at life, taking into account the central importance of the wife. (Serious humour, with illustrations)
3. Poemsa. The Lovebase
A Collection of Love Poems.
- being -
An Exercise in Idealism
For the Romantic Spirit
The Lovebase is a collection of over three hundred of the very best love poems to bring fire to even the coldest of hearts, and to awaken the idealist within your soul. Categories include love's beauty, fantastic love, erotic love, immortal love, the contradictions of love, love's lies, the pain of love, and the humour of love.
a. Wit for Wisdom is a choice collection of about two thousand morsels of wisdom. Composed of: Men and women, Love, Marriage, and Assorted jewels
b. The Thinking Man's Dictionary contains a good deal of all the definitions a thinking man should know.
c. Power Words is a compendium of about 3,000 of the most incisive and humorous, quotes, aphorisms and witticisms.
5. Lettersa. Letters between Enemies
There are three kinds of succession:
The inferior man succeeds the man of power.
The mediocre man succeeds his benefactor.
The superior man succeeds his enemy.
This is a collection of the letters exchanged between David Quinn and myself during the period from 1988 to 1992. They represent a record of our struggles to live a philosophic life, along with a good deal of philosophy. We feel that if others can find some inspiration from what we have written in these letters then it is our duty to make them publicly available.
Letters such as are written by wise men are, of all the words of men, in my judgment the best. - Francis Bacon
6. Travela. India in Black and White is a photo-journalistic foray into India. If nothing else, India stimulates the mind, and I present you here with thoughts as they occur to me.
B. The Devil's Gallery
The Devil's Gallery is a collection of six hundred and fifty images to awaken even the most lazy of minds. If the combination of graphics and aphoristic wisdom penetrate your heart any less severely than would an arrow, then I will have failed in my task. The viewer program has an extra-fast text mode and full search capability.
"Oil painting and colour are for women and the lazy." - Michelangelo
