Many parts of my websites are old and embarrassing and I am always on a constant mission to improve bad bits them with new, professional pages. It is a long journey.
My writings frequently verge on subjects and topics that are provocative and taboo. One main aim of my websites is to challenge and smash taboos, to make people think things they've not thought before.
I do it because I am impatient with those who set humanity back intellectually and therefore technologically. The medical sciences, astrosciences and biological sciences such as psychology and neurology all have immense scope to improve the lives, and lifespans, of human beings, but countless religion-inspired and stupidity-inspired obstacles sit in their paths. So I battle against the worst of human nature, and I expect no rewards except to have lived a powerful life doing what I want to do.
“Some people write for fifteen years with no success and then decide to quit. Don't look for success and don't quit. If you want to write, write under all circumstances. Success will or will not come, in this lifetime or the next. Success is none of our business. It comes from outside. Our job is to write, to not look up from our notebook and wonder how much money Norman Mailer earns.”
"The Long Quiet Highway" by Natalie Goldberg
I am fit, articulate, motivated, conscientious, fiercely independent and responsible, mature and upstanding. I hate the "easy life" and hate shortcuts. I don't like slack, stupidity, whinging or weakness. On the outside I am stoic and independent, but also fair, noticeably good-natured and dependable. On the inside I am moody, impatient but very understanding and compassionate. A regular humanitarian but still a misanthrope with little genuine enjoyment of people, just an ability to empathize. I live to better myself and better others through the preaching of truth and philosophy. I am an elitist in theory, if not in practice!

“Philosophers strive to clarify their own thinking and to help others do likewise.”
In common with most English people I wasn't exposed to religion so remained an implicit atheist until my late teens. This means I didn't believe in God, because, I had never heard of the idea of God. In my late teens when I came across the concept, I found it ridiculous and without basis in reality, at which point I became an explicit atheist and a Humanist. I am still a Humanist.
Hard science is reductionist, realistic and the acceptance of science that seems inhuman; such as: we evolved in the same way as other animals, we have only existed for a tiny fraction of the lifespan of the Earth, we are insignificant in the grand universe, that our thoughts and feelings are biochemical in nature, not spiritual and our existence is a series of determined states over which we have no genuine control (i.e., there is no free will). The cold truth of reality humbles humanity, yet Human pride often makes us think we are important in the universe, or that a God cares deeply about whether we're nice to people or not, or whether we believe in religious myths or not. Our primitive egos once compelled us to make ourselves feel important in the universe and in our lives. This has adversely affected science. The solution is to actively embrace science that seems to belittle us. It requires honesty and humility.
When I left college and continued to study human biology and psychology extensively. I aimed to study cyborg technology with Professor Warwick and Reading University. I ended up doing computer science and artificial intelligence instead, and for a number of years now have worked in the I.T. industry supporting networks all over the world.
