Creating a Website is Easy — The Nuts and Bolts of HTML5 and CSS3

All programming is basically simple. It may not look that way at first glance, especially for those who’ve never done any programming. But like any skill, you start out small and build on it. You wouldn’t ask an infant to press 500 pounds of iron, yet one day, that very … Continue reading

Science, Social Interaction and More...

My entire life, I have spent in one form of exploration or another. I have explored the sciences—astronomy, geology, physics, chemistry, archaeology, anthropology and others. I have explored the mind and spirit. I have also explored the landscape of social interaction and politics, making all manner of discoveries, not all of them pretty.

Art and Writing

In my first career, I explored art, creating landscapes of other worlds, and producing background art for one short film by two time Academy Award winner, Saul Bass. I have explored the heart and found that men have remained confused about love for centuries, yet the truth about love is disarmingly simple. I have also explored the art of writing, publishing my first novel with a friend (John Dalmas) in 1983. I have also won first-place honors for my essay, "Outsiderness in the Scientific Community" (Krupnick Award), and for my short story, "Toady" (Dutton Books Award). Since then, I have published six other books—two science fiction and four non-fiction.

Computer Science and Software Engineering

In my second career, I explored the virtual world of computers, learning two dozen languages. I have explored mathematics, and produced 3D astronomy space software, Stars in the NeighborHood.

Education and the Skills of Discovery

And I have explored the realm of education, teaching classes at corporations like Control Data and Ceridian Payroll, and more recently teaching two semesters at Benedicto College in Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines.

Spirit, Creation, Inspiration and Forgiveness

My entire life, I have been fascinated about ontological concerns—myself versus others, faith and doubt, and above all, the reason why we are here. In the last six decades, I have discovered far more than I originally thought possible. I have seen miracles that prove the existence of spirit and God. I have walked the strands of space sans corpus. I have tasted True Forgiveness and felt the love of my enemies blot out every ember of hate and resentment. I have felt the Holy Spirit move within my mind, inspiring it to see things it could not otherwise have thought.

Without Faith, it is impossible to please God... (Hebrews 11:6)

For some, life can be dull and repetitive. For others, it is filled with adventure and wonder. I have seen both sides. This website is dedicated to the adventurer in each of us. Dare to explore your mind, your life, your universe and more. This isn't about "thinking outside the box." Here, we vaporize the box and move freely through all possibilities.

Welcome!

Why are we here?

What is the purpose of it all?

Kabbalah is spiritual science. It includes the exact methods needed for ascending into the spiritual realm.

Kabbalah isn't New Age. It isn't magick, mysticism or religion. It's none of these things. It's ancient wisdom handed down for thousands of years and kept secret until our modern age when it was needed most.

Free, Authentic Kabbalah training.

Early Kabbalists wrote the Bible, and if you ever thought some of it didn't exactly make sense, it's only because you don't know their code for unraveling its Hidden Wisdom.

If you're ready for answers, here is where to start.
