Back in the 1980s I was living in New York City and was an avid reader of OMNI magazine (a Bob Guccione publication about the future, science, speculative fiction and more). It was at that time that I was attracted to Rudy Rucker's "Infinity and The Mind". I think I bought my first copy in paperback at East-West Books in Lower Manhattan. It certainly influenced my world-view and I would highly reccomend it to anyone interested in books that really make one think about things. I would also suggest "The Most Important Thought" by Jean Pierre Ady Fenyo, which is also about Infinity.
