Demise into lifestyles is a 1946 novel via Olaf Stapledon. no longer strictly technology fiction (the style into which Stapledon's works are typically classified), the radical is defined as "an ingenious therapy of the matter of survival after death". It bargains essentially with the soul of a rear gunner who's killed in global struggle II, and who unearths himself surviving his obvious demise - first as a part of a spirit bomber-crew, then as a part of the spirits who have been killed within the conflict, etc until eventually ultimately his soul turns into a part of a 'cosmical spirit'.

The dilithium mining outpost on BorSitu Minor is an understaffed, dull, unspectacular position filled with miners, engineers, and scientists who've by no means performed damage to a person, nor have they got whatever of value.
Yet the outpost has been devastated via a brutal attack, with just about all fingers misplaced -- and the survivors don't know what attacked them. Worse, the assault weapon seems to have the ability to penetrate the outpost's robust shields. That has the team of the U. S. S. da Vinci anxious, because it may perhaps simply as simply spoil a starship!
Now the S. C. E. crew, led by way of Commander Sonya Gomez, needs to discover the reality in the back of what ravaged the outpost, and wish that somebody hasn't unleashed a weapon which could ruin all of them!
An research right into a chroniton disturbance leads the da Vinci to a time-travelling Ferengi named Lant -- person who goes to the previous on the way to "speculate" and make a fortune. Now Commander Gomez, Lt. Commander Tev, Lt. Commander Corsi, and Cultural professional Abramowitz of the S. C. E.

A projected second volume will carry the story to and beyond D. Pedro's death in 1574, although a more limited documentary base may well yield less information on the social and economic sides of the colony's history. Lyon (1984) sketches aspects of such a second volume and calls attention to one of the lesser known aspects of the Spanish presence in the South: the town of Santa Elena on Parris Island, SC. Karen Paar also is preparing a history of Santa Elena. The rest of the history of the Spanish settlement, at St Augustine to 1700, is still only partially known.

By 1719 that initial alliance had turned to enmity in Europe and on the Gulf Coast. Restored in the 1730s, the alliance (the Family Compact) waned in the 1750s, only to be revived again in 1762 when Spain saw France going down to defeat before the British. Spain's ill-timed and ill-prepared entry into the Seven Years' War 32 PAUL E. HOFFMAN followed, with the consequent loss of all of the South east of the Mississippi River in the treaties of 1763. La Louisiane, thus reduced to roughly the area of the later Louisiana Purchase, was given to a reluctant Spain as France pulled out of North America.
