The purpose of this book is to break the dry and blocking condition of the contemporary philosophy and to create the new horizon. The question about nothingness had begun in all ages and places. For example, Lao-tzu, Chuang-tzu, Solomon, Buddha, Pascal, Nietzsche, Bergson, Heidegger, and many other philosophers have expounded on this subject. Nothingness is not non-existence of all things. On the contrary, nothingness produced the infinite universe that expanded from the Big Bang and continues to infinity and eternity. The end of the universe is not confirmed by science. If man says that it exists, it is. If man says that it does not exist, it is not. Man can say nothing. It is beyond the expression, therefore Absolute Nothingness. This expression is the whole of the universe. Being and matter are only limited small parts of the universe by the function of relative nothingness in human thought. We call this logic Transcendental Nothingness or Absolute Nothingness. Nothingness is the highest wisdom which the Transcendent Being revealed to mankind and continues to infinity, to eternity, to the Transcendent Being, God and to love. I call this the principle of nothingness and love.

The novel takes place in a bar in an American suburb that has uncannily linked the lives of the main and even secondary characters, and then in Los Angeles: the «city of lost angels» (one of the angels materializes in the form of a beautiful boy on the streets of the metropolis). Connie, with hopes of conquering Hollywood, heads to Los Angeles to take courses in filmmaking and screenwriting. On the way, she stops in a roadside bar where she meets David Ogden and learns many dramatic details about his life. In Los Angeles, she faces the unconventional lessons of Mr. BB, who is wholeheartedly devoted to the «magic of cinema» and draws his students into active participation in the «global battle between good and evil» exclusively through art. She meets David Ogden again, befriending him and his pal Lee, has a relationship with Jack Neumann (a talented student in the performing arts faculty), which sparks onstage and develops in the best tradition of the genre. Connie’s encounter with an angelic young boy on the streets of Los Angeles becomes a turning point in her life: his death in a car accident sets off a chain of dramatic events.

From the first known photograph taken in Los Angeles to its most recent sweeping vistas, this photographic tribute to the City of Angels provides a fascinating journey through the city's cultural, political, industrial, and sociological history. It traces the city's development from the 1880s' real estate boom, through the early days of Hollywood and the urban sprawl of the late 20th century, right up to the present day. With over 500 images, L.A. is shown emerging from a desert wasteland to become a vast palm-studded urban metropolis. Events that made world news including two Olympics, Bobby Kennedy's assassination, and the Rodney King riots reveal a city of many dimensions. The entertainment capital of the world, Hollywood, and its celebrities are showcased along with many other notable residents, personalities, architects, artists, and musicians. The city's pop cultural movements, its music, surfing, health food fads, gangs, and hot rods are included, as are its notorious crimes and criminals. This book depicts Los Angeles in all its glory and grit, via hundreds of freshly discovered images including those of Julius Shulman, Garry Winogrand, William Claxton and many other superb photographers, culled from major historical archives, museums, private collectors, and universities. These are given context and resonance through essays by renowned California historian Kevin Starr and Los Angeles literature expert David Ulin.
Hollywood individualism pervades every aspect of life in Los Angeles including interior design, where it manifests as highly original spaces from Malibu to Silver Lake in a dizzying assortment of styles - from 1920s and 1930s Spanish Revival houses in the Hollywood hills, to highly adorned Storybook houses, and airy and transparent midcentury modern forms.Status in Los Angeles, like success in the ever-fascinating movie industry that sets it apart, is based on the creation of truly unique moments. A relentless celebration of personality fuels the city, creating a cult of the individual and driving the city's collective exaltation of talents and quirks. This collection of nineteen homes designed by Los Angeles-based architects and designers illustrates this exuberance and diversity. The homes showcased here in over 200 full-color images are in the hills and on the flats - they evoke Old Europe with antique or hand-crafted finishes, keep guests riveted to the moment with intensely rich details, or defer, with restrained palettes, to stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. They are of new construction by iconic figures such as Richard Meier & Partners, as well as classic homes such as a Spanish Revival by George H.Freuhling, a fanciful Storybook streamlined for contemporary life, and immaculately restored midcentury homes by Harwell Hamilton Harris and John Lautner.
Inspired by DH Lawrence, Chekhov and Hemingway, Bukowski's writing is passionate, extreme and has attracted a cult following, while his life was as weird and wild as the tales he wrote. This collection of short stories gives an insight into the dark, dangerous lowlife of Los Angeles that Bukowski inhabited. From prostitutes to classical music, Bukowski ingeniously mixes high and low culture in his 'tales of ordinary madness'. These are angry yet tender, humorous and haunting portrayals of life in the underbelly of Los Angeles.
Book DescriptionA crime fiction in which the journey through the evidence is more exciting than the crime itself ... A narrative strategy that reflects Los Angeles ... as open-ended, inconclusive a series of beginnings rather than any definitive end ... by David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times Book Review 1/18/2004 Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles, 1920-1986 is an interactive narrative that combines a database detective story with a digital city symphony and a metanarrative reflection on storytelling in this digital medium. Set in a three-mile radius near downtown Los Angeles, this DVD-ROM explores Boyle Heights, Bunker Hill, Chavez Ravine, Chinatown, Echo Park, Little Tokyo and other contested locations that helped shape the citys cultural history. These ethnically complex neighborhoods are documented through archival photographs and films and through contemporary images that either reproduce or evoke them. This DVD- ROM is accompanied by a book, which contains a novella by cultural historian Norman M. Klein and essays on the production by Jeffrey Shaw, Marsha Kinder, Rosemary Comella and Andreas Kratky. The interface enables the narrative to be navigated in three ways. Positioned within a small window, author Norman Klein tells the story of Molly, the fictional protagonist of his novella who is based on a real life person and who may have murdered one of her husbands. He invites us to collaborate with him in writing this fictional life. Or we can explore what Molly never noticedthe back-stories of real life people whose mini-memoirs preserve histories that otherwise might have been lost. And finally, the project leads us to reflect on this act of database storytelling and its cultural implications, particularly when set within L.A.s urban dream factory. The contrast between past and present is most dramatic and uncanny in the back stories, where one can slide fluidly between "bleed-throughs"old and new photographs of the same cityscape taken from precisely the same anglewhich enable us to make buildings instantaneously emerge or vanish. Drawing on hundreds of photographs, newspaper clippings and films from the archives of USC, the Los Angeles Public Library and the Automobile Club of Southern California with additional material from personal collections, "Bleeding Through" helps us refigure our vision of Los Angeles, particularly if it has been based primarily on representations from Hollywood mainstream movies. © 2003 Annenberg Center for Communication University of Southern California
