Nonfiction

This work is filled with the mysteries that until now have been real, not imagined. It takes us from the beginning of the universe to a look at reality.

New book:

The Bumpy, Lumpy Road to Humanity, based on, and updated from, my earlier Deep Currents is now available.

The Bumpy, Lumpy Road to Humanity is an illustrated road trip of discovery. It is the discovery of where we came from and how we got to where we are today. Whether you are 15 or 115, join me on a journey with stops and vistas unlocking some of the mysteries of the universe, life, consciousness, and reality. And learn why our brains, as remarkable as we want to believe they are, are no longer good enough.

Now learning is a never-ending journey. The more we learn, the better tools we can build, adding to, and sometimes changing what we know about this universe in which we find ourselves. Learning is a cycle of study, building, learning some more, and going through the cycle again. It is a journey of ideas and theories, eventually confirmed as facts or discarded ideas as we learn to understand, manipulate, and build new things that we once only imagined. As such, some vistas we will visit will change over time.

This is already the second version with new updates. In fact, when I first began this journey decades ago, many of the fields we will visit weren’t even known to exist. Our universe is an incredibly dynamic place. This universe in which we find ourselves is a complex web of interconnected and interdependent complex systems. And each complex system sends out ripples of change as they adapt to their changing environments.

The payoff for our journey, and what we have created, is a vastly improved quality of life.

But there are also warning signs. What has made us great as a species, has also left us open to building things and systems where we don’t fully understand the ripple effects of our actions. In short, while our brains are genuinely wonderous, they are no longer good enough. We will visit some of the reasons why along our journey. And hopefully, gain an understanding of what lies ahead.
