INTRODUCING THE SECOND EDITION OF MINDSTAR 2018. This revision includes a new chapter which directly addresses the transitional experience of physical "death" itself. The primise of the entire book continues to be that this is a consciousness-evolutionary, not a terminal event. Yet because of popular ignorance and fear surrounding it, I felt that MindStar should discuss it more directly.
MindStar explores the mystery of the human soul: what it is, how it can be detected, and how it can be creatively and productively activated. Included is a historical survey of misapprehensions, misuses, and outright rejections of this central, crucial metaphysical core of human existence.
The soul, or "MindStar" as redefined herein, is the key to individual conscious immortality, which is addressed and prescribed clearly and coherently.
My companion books MindWar and FindFar detail the "thought architecture" which is subject to natural and artificial manipulation: subconscious/pattern and conscious/algorithmic thinking. Specifically excluded was conceptual thought, which, being metaphysical, is not subject to such manipulation. This thought comprises the emanations of the MindStar, which this book now examines.
The result of an incarnated lifetime of experience, research, and exploration by the author, MindStar speaks directly and candidly to the questions which have previously been evaded, misarticulated, or condemned as "sacrilegious" or "unscientific" by those fearful of what they might find within themselves.
In short, MindStar is, finally, an "owner's manual" for the ultimate, omnipotent, and immortal you.

About the Author
Non-fictional books by Dr. Aquino generally fall into three categories: historical, practical, and initiatory.
Historical works include The Neutron Bomb (a study of the domestic and foreign politics surrounding the proposed NATO introduction of that weapon in 1977-8) and Extreme Prejudice (a documentary exposé of the 1986-7 "Satanic ritual abuse" scam at the Presidio of San Francisco.
Two other [2-volume] books - The Church of Satan and The Temple of Set - are not only histories but initiatory analyses as well, examining the philosophical and metaphysical concepts which define and energize those religious institutions.
As one of the U.S. Army's extremely rare Political-Military Affairs Officers [with credentials in Strategic & Space Intelligence, Psychological Operations, Special Forces, Civil Affairs, Defense Attaché, and Foreign Area Officer], Dr. Aquino has also introduced the practical application of "MindWar" as a methodology for reducing, if not eliminating contemporary humanity's obsession with and reliance upon murderous, destructive conventional war (PhysWar"). His 2013 book MindWar introduces this solution and outlines its successive stages of implementation.
Finally a purely-initiatory work, MindStar, addresses the purely-metaphysical "soul" of human thought which MindWar [as a practical curriculum] omits, confronting the elusive questions of human divinity and immortality.
Unsurprisingly Dr. Aquino's fictional ventures - We Break the Sword, FireForce, and Morlindalë ("authored" by The One Ring) - all draw upon extensive political and philosophical principles in their telling. Both FireForce and Morlindalë utilize the literary technique of parody in a serious, rather than humorous exploration and extrapolation of the original source.
Additionally Dr. Aquino has recovered and Edited a collection of childhood poems by his mother, Betty Ford: Pegasus in Pinfeathers.
All of these books are available on Amazon in both printed paperback and Kindle ebook editions.
