			REVIEW
of the book "Fancies (experiments of reasonings about God and Man)" by
Leonid B. Emelyanov-Yaroslavsky

This book attempts to explain our real world and to describe some
hypothetical world in the form of fancies. The author considers this
book as an introduction to biological engineering or phylosophical
engineering. He believes the major requirements to his fancies are the
engineering likelyhood, completeness of properties and the minimal
number of axioms.
Engineering likelyhood means the requirement of concreteness, of
bringing ideas up to the mechanisms. The completeness means the
explanation of "white spots" in our knowledge, including all set of
paranormal phenomena. The minimal number of axioms, according to the
author, should be reflected in the simplicity of properties of an
initial element of the world, from which the whole world with God,
souls and Man is developed with conformity to certain laws. The author
does not consider the pre-history of the initial element, but states
that it is some hypothetical neuron, and world is considered as a
superbrain organized from such neurons.
The basis of the fancies is the statement about the simplicity of a
brain. This paradoxical author’s statement is based on his researches
of intelligent quasibiological system, which are described in his
previous monography, published by "Nauka" publishing house in 1990, in
which neuro-energetic concept of a brain is described. In the book
this concept is described briefly in the appendix. A kernel of the
concept is: all in Man, in God and in the Universe is subordinated to
the solution of the unique problem - to minimize the pain.
The book has relatively small volume but covers extremely wide area:
ball lightning, structured water, the nature of paranormal phenomena,
evolution, urinotherapy and much more, and all this is explained in
logical unity and mutual causality. The book does not belong to the
easy-reading category. The book will be certainly very useful and
interesting for those, who is not afraid of non-standard points of
view.
