I Searched Myself - Heraclitus, Socrates and Thinking Excellently

Power to The People - American Cultural History and Revolutionary Values Revisited

Thinks Excellently 2013-2018

Neuro-atypical, self-educated, approaches new topics as a blank slate which has occasionally resulted in observations which others, with relevant education and experience have found to be of interest.

I Searched Myself is an important exposition of the heretofore 'nimis obscurē' or 'too obscure' Heraclitus of Ephesus, the first coherent, cohesive exposition of his teachings in 2,500 years, which astonishingly resulted in new context in which to consider Socrates who, in turn, supports this take on his major influence by echoing him in his own words.

Power to The People is a more modest take on America today, through the lens of Thomas Jefferson's quoted thoughts on a wide variety of topics.

Both can be found in the usual outlets, links on my site, below for sake of convenience.

I plan to write and publish an essay here relating to Einstein, Mozart and a third party, speculating on what they had in common and which of the three doesn't belong.

I am also, somewhat trepidatiously, considering beginning penning the third book I intend to write. But, the subject matter being no less than Michelangelo himself, I tread very, very carefully.
