It's Maundy Thursday once again and time to celebrate the Eucharist of The Last Supper where Jesus gave his disciples bread, saying, 'This is my body,' and wine, saying, 'This is my blood.' Today, Christians celebrate this tradition with a communion of crackers and grape juice, most without a second thought as to its origin. Yet, a few might still wonder why a ritual so blatantly cannibalistic would be
A couple of months ago, I threw a grand party at a modern art gallery near downtown Dallas to celebrate the release of my latest book. It wasn't so much a book signing as it was an experiment in musical science and philosophy. Let me explain.
The book is entitled The Grand Scientific Musical Theatre, which anyone can download free as a PDF e-book on InterferenceTheory.com here. It is a 3D storybook
Our schools and churches do not tell us everything. They don't tell us even the simplest things; things like the Earth-Moon system matches the geometry of a hen's egg and that both are a containment property of the golden mean, Φ = (√5 + 1) / 2.
While we don't hear much about it today (actually nothing about it), knowledge of this 'cosmic egg' geometry was apparently well known in the ancient
One of the things I came to understand during the writing of my first book Interference: A Grand Scientific Musical Theory was the association between the Fibonacci series ( 1,1,2,3,5,8,13, etc., spiraling toward the golden ratio 1.618033) and ancient mythologies who worshipped dragon-serpents.

Everywhere I looked I found the Fibonacci series
Imagine, if you will, a time before numbers. A time when people had not yet created symbols to represent quantity and order objects in the world. In this primordial, prehistoric world we might ask if numbers still existed, waiting to be discovered. If so, how might Nature itself count?
Well, Nature does indeed count for itself. All we have to do to prove this is look at the periodic table and noti
While in London recently, my family and I went to see the musical Hair, a remake of the groundbreaking Broadway musical of the 1960's. With close-up seats at center stage, I can say unequivocally that it was the most impactful musical I have ever witnessed.
It brought back all of the emotions and social problems I experienced in the turbulent sixties, still very relevant today with two wars as mean
There is a very simple way for each of us to know without a doubt that we are more than a material being. The proof for this is in the nether realm just before we fall asleep.
The next time you lay down to sleep, but before you drift off, ask yourself to try and visualize a scene - any scene - and then just relax. As your inner dialog ceases and begins to give into the darkness, your mind will
I was a teenager in the late 1960s / early 1970s and part of a counterculture family. We actively protested against the Vietnam war, provided a crash pad for activists of all kinds and embraced the most open and exotic ideas possible at that time. We listened to folk music, read the underground newspapers and often thought of ourselves as hippies. My parents were so liberal that I was even allowed
In my own quest for understanding, I continue to be drawn to the study of the human mind and how it relates to the geometry of the head and body. I have always felt that clues to consciousness must exist in every part of the body and that we have but to understand the entire body to understand consciousness.
While writing my first book Interference, I found a way to reverse engineer the geometrical
This is a follow-up to my blog post entitled 'The Twin Pillars of Hercules.'
In that post, I discussed how the mountains either side of the Strait of Gibraltar could have symbolized two golden ratios in a musical tone where a standing wave will naturally damp out enharmonic or fractional waves, thus enabling the piggyback formation of harmonics. While it is a musical example, the same physics applies
