I became a self-taught philosopher at the age of forty, after obtaining my GED and earning an associate’s degree in liberal arts. My interest in philosophy was, and is, on the nature of realness, specifically the transition inferred between logical language arrangements that dominate all subjects of intellectual activity and the material realm, whatever the physical realm is correctly figured out to be.
My initial training in metaphysics and philosophy of mind was a project I called Transcendent Reality. I worked on this text for a few years before putting it down because the subject matter was too broad. In 2015 I wrote The Genetic Universe, which explored the key issues of my original metaphysics. In 2020 I wrote Genetic Universe Glossary, a reference text for the main book that offered a number of definitions meant to better explain my metaphysical persuasion.
The state of realness is ruled by the direct cognitive relation of a perceiving human subject and its perceived object. The perceived object is a source-location lacking existence prior to such cognitive relation. Therefore, only actualized realness transcends the far-reaching range and scope of proportional representation, which is what rules both human cognition and expression. Although knowledge is a crucial component of perception, the realness actualized in perception is beyond the reach of logical schemes (which are unable to produce materiality) and a most proper subject for metaphysics (and for philosophy of mind in my own persuasion). The nature of realness is perhaps the last remaining legitimate subject in which metaphysics could equal or surpass modern physics—or even defeat it, depending on what one values more: practical results or discernment. In other words, even if at my own rhetorical cost, talking about realness does not properly internalize reality. Realness can only be accessed (actualized and internalized) in perception.
