My life is dedicated to to realizing BLT (Beauty Love Truth) for the BMW (Body Mind World).
This site has some of my writing about applied philosophy, psychology, what’s called “spirituality”, more or less, and whatever else strikes my fancy.
I also post some purty pitchurs to make your eyeballs spin, dance and be extra happy.
I’ve been self-employed since 1989 as a creative entrepreneur and freelancer. These days I do independent “design consultant” for a software company (including how to make things more usable for humans), and various other clients. I also create and sell photos, art, and jewelry and whatever else pops out of me.
I graduated from U.C.S.D. with a degree in Philosophy and a minor in Visual Art (I specialized in the Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, and pursued independent research into the Philosophy of Psychology & AI). For a while when in school, I fantasizing myself to be a future professor. Then I realized no one—even the world-class philosophers with huge grants I’d previously worshipped—knew what the mind or intelligence was, or how the brain worked, or anything else they claimed to know, especially about consciousness (and neither did I, I just knew they didn’t know what they claimed they knew). I also had an enormous, gran mal revelation that intuition was the way to go. In other words that intuition was the primary and natural mode of intelligence, in the here and now, from the inside, from the Source, and not cognitive, symbol-based, mechanical, computer or model-based thinking. That put me outside, beyond the pale of academia, whose modus operandi was analytical, mind-oriented, and hyper-intellectual, as well as politically and career motivated, ego-based, and in a process modality of thinking (operations through time on memories: not fresh, creative, or free). They were obsessed with modeling the mind and consciousness, and not realizing It, using the only tool they would admit was real within their material and mental paradigm (if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail!).
These days I hang out with Francis Lucille and Laura Lucille, and other lovers and friends of truth, absorbing by osmosis an atmosphere of peace, love, and beauty and all that good stuff. Learning not to expect. Or rather unlearning to expect…
