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 (most evidently in physics and chemistry) on all subjects it undertakes 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.
