About me

Gender MALE
Industry Science
Location San Francisco, California, United States
Introduction I was born on December 3, 1934. My fascination with the world of physics began one afternoon as a child at a local matinee, when the news reel revealed the awesome power and might of the world's first atomic explosion. This fascination continued, leading me to study mathematics and physics. In 1963, I received my Ph.D. in theoretical physics from UCLA and began researching the field of high atmospheric particle behavior following a nuclear explosion. Since then, I have delved into the relationship between human consciousness, psychology, physiology, the mystical, and the spiritual. My investigations have taken me from intimate discussions with physicist David Bohm to the magical and mysterious jungles of Peru; from master classes with Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman to shamanic journeys on the high deserts of Mexico; from a significant meeting with Werner Heisenberg to the hot coals of a firewalk. I have authored eleven books and I continue to lecture, research, and teach worldwide.
Interests I love movies, cop shows, whodunnits, and science fiction, especially the writing of PK Dick.
Favorite Movies The Day of the Jackal, directed by Fred Zinnemann. I love the loneliness of the assassin as he goes against the establishment in trying to get Charles de Gaulle.
Favorite Music Classical music, the Doors, the Beatles, War
Favorite Books Anything by John le Carre, especially the Smiley series.
