Born in 1937 in the small town of Tuolumne California to school teacher parents, moved to Oroville 1n 1940. After school he worked for IBM and after that the State of California for seven years as a programmer and systems analyst. He dropped out and lived by his wits in the Northwest woods for 15 years. He returned to tech work with the State, running a graphics, Desktop Publishing, and Video production unit for the next 13 years. He also started writing about his experiences in the woods. Now retired, he devotes himself mostly to performing and recording music. OK, that's my life but not about who I am. I assume you are interested if you got this far.
For some reason I have spent my whole life experimenting with my brain. I don't mean drugs or stuff, it is just my nature to be inquisitive and to honestly deal with thr results. I'm always trying to connect points and acquire new points. The real reason for this website is as a repository for whatever 'insights' I may have on things. Probably no one wants to get into this shit, but I'm definitely not selling anything here (beside my book). It is a distillation of my thoughts as I approach 80. So it's just out there for anyone who might be interested. I invested a lot of time and energy on this shit and I just didn't want it to die when the brain goes. My viewpoints on topics such from anthropology to physics, Chaos theory brain hemisphere studies, and I guess you get the idea. This stuff all makes sense to me. The important part is that although I believe all of my insights are true to the physical world, I have a model that seems to illuminate reality, that belief and three dollars will probably get me a pretty good cup of coffee. I realize that the vast majority of people would be appalled by some of this stuff. I'm not pushing a point of view, only offering some things to consider. I am very much indebted to many people have influenced my perceptions. Among them are Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Koestler, Lao Tzu, Alan Watts, Alan Weiss, Willie Nelson, Tom Russell and many more.
seems to be accepted in our western world that you don't know what you don't
know. The unknown unknowns by our ex-Secretary of defense and one of the world's
true benefactors. I disagree. I think it's easy to know what we don't know.
Take stock of what we know for sure, then everything else we don't
