This book sets out to explore the connections between megalithic monuments and Rock ‘n’ Roll music by first addressing what the megalithic structures would have originally meant to the... More > builders and users of these sites and at the statements they were making at that time. It then looks at how Rock ‘n’ Roll artists have incorporated images of these monuments into album cover designs by looking at specific examples, in an attempt to understand why, despite being separated by millennia from the original builders, they chose to use such places to represent the statements they are making through their music in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.< Less

Using information unconsciously encoded into languages, I ask "How do women + men get (or fail to get) respect within their societies?" I start with a simple prehistoric Algonquian society...

Some changes in warfare, economy, + social organization over the centuries had major impacts upon the social statuses of women vs men, while others did not.

They are especially interesting because -- contrary to the predictions of most theories -- they have maintained an equality of the sexes typical of simple societies that gather + hunt. I also discuss Proto Indo European society, sex gender, + the origin of matrilineal organization.< Less

New alignments found at Stonehenge showing that it was a sophisticated astronomical observatory. An entirely new theory is described in the book "Stonehenge Astronomical Observatory",... More > which shows numerous alignments that have previously not been recognised. This demonstrates that Stonehenge was conceived and built for purposes beyond the sacred or ceremonial reasons. We can now see that it was also used as a scientific instrument, for accurately measuring the rising and setting positions of the sun, moon, planets and stars. Our considerable respect that we already have for those who built it can only be deepened by this new understanding. The accompanying website gives further details, including an introductory video, and various other items of interest. Stonehenge Astronomical Observatory< Less

Nothing was ever good enough for me. Every class I took, or job I tried always seemed to fall short of my expectations. With each change of tide I would look back at my meager achievements and say...

As if I was living some playwrights’ script he had whipped up before my birth. Some will say that mastering yourself, or life, for that matter, is exceedingly impossible and should not be attempted. But, there are those who have made it their lifelong work to do so. Albert Einstein spent his entire life looking for a unifying theory of everything. Bruce Lee spent his time on Earth looking for the answer to perfect harmony. Jesus of Nazareth gave life long dedication to bringing world peace, as did Mother Teresa and many others. At a very young age I set out on a journey…. A journey for The Perfection of Life.< Less
