I Published My First Book: Probability Theory, Live!

By Ion Saliu, Founder of Probability Theory of Life

The book is about probability theory mathematics, life, lottery, gambling, intelligence in Universe.

I accomplished a great goal: I published my first book in print. The title of the book is Probability Theory, Live! Evidently, the book deals with theory of probability, a branch of mathematics.

The publisher is Xlibris. That name is very meaningful to me. I had around 10,000 books in my personal library when I lived in Romania. I have never reached that amount in USA—ever! Not even remotely close! I loved my collection of books. My ex-wife also loved them books. Granted, she contributed to the enrichment of my library. Communism forced me into self-exile—although it was a risky adventure. I crossed the border into former Yugoslavia, still one of my favorite countries. My ex-wife asked me not to send her many US dollars from America because would-be scavengers would swallow the dollars! She made money by selling the books in my personal library. Each and every book in my collection had this autograph on the first page:

Ex libris meis.

One of my books (textually, From my books, in Latin).

Followed by the Ion Saliu autograph:

How Ion Saliu has always signed the books in his personal library.

My book-love, including this Ex libris meis, is inherited. My parents have loved books—reading, that is. My father's books have this Ex libris meis Latin branding, followed by the Romanian translation: Din cartile mele. Then, my father's signature under the two lines. I also imitated my father's signature. I have never wanted to sign my name differently from my father's signature. His is better-looking than mine, however. I also admit that my father's calligraphy is unquestionably nicer than mine! Computer writing badly affected my handwriting! My signature is the most faithful reminiscence from the past of my manual writing.

I love reading as much as my parents, but our tastes have gone more and more divergent. I am farther intellectually. That's a natural thing. Society evolves as a generation becomes more intellectual than the previous one. The more intellectually divergent generations are, the more advanced a society is. If you look at so-called primitive cultures, the generational differences are virtually negligible. Although, the differences begin to look strident in the third millennium. For example, Amazonian tribes, who barely dressed one generation ago, wear now blue jeans, T-shirts, and baseball caps! It's all about comfort, an essential component of survival.

The women in harshly Islamic nations still wear headscarves and hide their bodies in textile armors. But they use cell phones asking their mothers-in-law for permission to buy sodas!

The societies evolve by creating intellectual gaps between generations. The gaps are essentially rational. The mind has two fundamental components: rational (reason) and irrational (beliefs). The most important change is in Reason. USA has a group of individuals — Amish — who still live like in the sixteenth century. The Amish kids, however, make cell phone calls when family members get seriously ill.

None of my books has been Ex libris meis-branded since I moved to USA! Furthermore, I have abandoned truckloads of books since my residency in the United States of America. Reason accepts abandonment as a component of evolution. It is all dated, but Time itself…

I know, the cover looks great! I created the images based on the Fundamental Formula of the Universe (FFG). The publisher, Xlibris, then created the cover design in consultation with me. I love that book look! I believe it is the greatest cover design of all time! I set it as the background of my Windows 7 desktop. Just right-click the book image at the top of this page.

There is a serious drawback to self-publishing. Most bookstores have very low regards for self-publishing companies. The idea is that everybody can publish a book, including crass idiots! Unfortunately, my book is not in a highly regarded company. Nonetheless, I wrote a revolutionary book that will be highly appreciated down the road in history. It is the Book of Truth: Randomness rules! Absolute certainty is absolute absurdity.

Read a formal review of my book in ForeWord Clarion Review, kind of a little bible of the publishing industry. Then read a strong opinion regarding the Clarion review — kind of a short review of a review. You know, I like what they did…the ClarIon(s)! They chose a woman to review my book. She gave me an acceptable 2 of 5. Chances are, a man would have “rewarded” me with “zero out of five”! I'm not kidding! I am notorious for bringing out the worst in men! That really feasts my ego! I must be really good…I mean really great…if I make some men feel like dying out of hatred towards yours truly!
