Each chapter is one of those gem encrusted tins that you can open, peep inside and enjoy. You can either methodically wander the entire shop, looking at each individual item in order, or, you can dance around with wild abandon, opening and closing whatever you like, whenever you like. You can take in tiny bits of it at a time or you can devour it all in one go. I don't mind. I don't mind how you go about it; all that matters to me is that you take something from it. Divided into four sections: Glitz, Create, Need to Knowsand All About Love, you'll find all my little tips and tricks, stories and insights and nuggets of advice.

The influence of the plastic arts, especially painting and sculpture, upon the Hispanic literary movement known as Modernismo is well-documented. Although numerous studies have referred to gems, Beyond the Glitter focuses upon the significance of gems and jewels in elaborating Modernismo's complex aesthetics. The role of gems and jewelry is discussed in the poetics of three prominent Modernista writers: Ruben Dario, Ramon del Valle-Inclan, and Jose Asuncion Silva. The conclusion underscores how the rich and varied symbolism associated with jewelry and precious gems enriched the poetics of Modernista writers because it enabled them to articulate their quest for ideal beauty, expressive of a sublime state of mind and spirit.

What if those who pretend to perceive something beyond the visible, what if they were right? Is Science capable of saying that it may indeed be so? We are presenting a complete view of the world and of man. Admittedly, it can be considered as pure fiction as no mathematical formulas are used anywhere in those texts. The hardware, the multi layer structure of our brain was described in 'Man, Worm and Ant' of the same author. In 'Glitter', we are looking at the software aspect of our flesh computer. This is a thorough analysis of the organization and functioning of the brain-mind. But it doesn't end there. In 'Yoga des Sphères', in 1970, this author postulated the existence of two 'parallel' universes. In 'Matter of Dream' this concept is repeated with more details. This is heresy to most physicists, yet there is a new theory within the walls of the university – thus debatable but acceptable – theory that shows that some of the problems encountered by physics can be resolved, assuming that the universe is indeed multi-layered. This theory is mostly the brain-child of Drs. Lisa Randall, and Raman Sundrum. Dr Leclercq's description of this complex universe opens the door to accepting that there is indeed clairvoyance and thaumaturgic healing. It also shows that the notion of 'spirits' and 'souls' can be supported by science once it is seen that there are parallel universes really communicating. We can then ponder the presence of other entities, even gods maybe. In any case, this path finally helps us think reasonably about what we are here for... Are we just accidents of matter? Are we pawns placed for the enjoyment of some creator? Are we helpers in the progress of evolution? Dr. Leclercq says we are!

Hannah Matthews smooth, olive skin turned pasty, white, and flat. It pulled tightly over her frame, leaving behind a flawless but unnatural finish that closely resembled a mannequins. She reached up to touch her face, but her arm locked at the elbow, freezing her limb away from her side at a ninety-degree angle. It lodged squarely, refusing to move any further. She tried to speak but no words would form. A cheesy smile had welded itself onto her lips, one that would lead any passer-by to believe she was quite content. She could still speak, but she couldnt wipe the grin off her face. Her eyes remained frightened and frustrated, despite the story her face told. She had become trapped in the body of a mannequin. Others had been destroyed in this building as well. Nick Pearson had come here not long ago, and his entire body had become covered in thick scars. It happens to all of us. Every day we live, we die a little more. Something makes us scarred and lethargic, stealing our vivacity and our quality of life. Is it circumstances, or is it our choices? History proves we cant prevent our own demise. But what if there was someone who could? Meet the Glitter Man.
