Early in my life I had exceptional experiences of light, insight and understanding that turned my attention to relationships between visible and invisible realities.  I began experimenting with different means to achieve and understand altered states of consciousness.  By combining study of philosophy with study of theoretical physics in my undergraduate years, I initiated a long reflection on both the nature of energy and on the transformations of power across material and immaterial manifestations.  After completing my undergraduate work in philosophy at Stanford University in the late 60ís, during which I studied different languages in order to touch the spirit of philosophy in the original tongues of the thinkers themselves, I entered a concentrated phase of exploration into various alternative approaches to life including psychic development, alternative healing, and nutritional science.  These pathways brought me to an intensive study of eastern spirituality which culminated in profound meditative experiences around The Tibetan Book of the Dead, prior to my writing my Masterís thesis, death and education, as a graduate student in the UCLA College of Education in the mid-70ís.  Convinced that I needed a long period of isolation for reflection, I left the urban world and moved deep into the Alaskan wilderness where I lived for several years a mostly solitary existence within nature.  Upon returning to developed civilization in New York State, I brought many extraordinary experiences with animals and nature into poetry and became a recognized poet.  After returning to Alaska, I continued writing and teaching poetry, developing my philosophical point of view and accumulating thoughts toward my future doctoral program.  On the basis of my first personal exposure to Asian culture in the late 80ís, I went on to the University of Oregon to write my doctoral dissertation on moral education in Taiwan.  I had encountered chaos theory and semiotics by that time and used both of them as theoretical orientations in my dissertation.  Since then, I have continued my eclectic and synthetic developments by writing and/or publishing on semiotics, chaos theory and theoretical physics.  My current research interests revolve around the human being as a transformative receptor of information that is engrained in the energy of the universe in multiple dimensions that are accessible with and without the interventions of either physical experimentation or mental protocols.
