My occupation as a self-taught philosopher began since I earned my Associate Degree on Liberal Arts after getting my GED; I was then 40 years old.
My interest in philosophy was, and is, on the nature of realness, specifically the actualizing transitional dimension inferred between mental, logical arrangements that happen to dominate all subjects of intellectual activity and the material realm; whatever it is correctly figured out to be.
My initial training on metaphysics and philosophy of mind was a project I called Transcendent Reality; a text meant to become a book that I worked on for a few years before putting it down in the basis of it being too broad a topic for my book.
In 2015 I wrote The Genetic Universe a book embodying the key issues of my original metaphysics and later a second, larger edition of it. In 2020 I wrote Genetic Universe Glossary, a reference text for the main book offering a number of additional definitions meant to better explain my metaphysical persuasion.
One of my motivations to write it and self-publish it was to bring back metaphysics to its old glory after modern physics managed to make it obsolete. The way to bring back metaphysics must include convincing transcendence of logic, since science is the master of logic on all subjects it undertakes (most evidently in physics and chemistry) and as I have figured out working on my particular philosophical development only realness transcends logic.
Realness is beyond logic and a most proper subject for metaphysics, perhaps the last remaining legitimate subject in which metaphysics could equal, surpass or defeat modern physics. However talking about realness does not properly penetrate reality. Realness can only be accessed (and according to my metaphysical persuasion: actualized) in perception. Perception is the means for reality’s actualization therefore my writing in metaphysics and philosophy of mind finds necessarily to redefine perception and even existence itself. Such redefinition allows for correct description; actualized by logical language, of what is beyond logic.
For the reader of my book, there is a special role to be played in turn, which is to transcend my definition and description; presented by means of logical language, utilizing their own intuition to achieve a most significant understanding of “what is it” that I mean by existence, perception and reality.
P.S. I am aware some visitors to my book website may come straight to this page seeking academic qualifications before considering purchasing my book or even spending time at all. All I could say in such regard is I am very much confident on my book value and lacking such confidence I would not had self-publish it. I recommend reading the excerpts selected by me, and shown in the About the Book page before considering purchasing my book, and for readers proficient in metaphysics or philosophy of mind to examine the glossary excerpts since the glossary presents additional definitions not included in the book. Once in a while, or once in a lifetime being open minded in the absence of authoritative safeguards, could reap rewards such as discovering a valuable book; what is improbable by traditional or current standards could surprise just by being possible.
