 Edit this address in your mail reader
to remove the bits-'antispam' & 'nospam' meant to defeat automated spam address harvesters,
but if that statement makes no sense to you then

copy down my alternative address:

changing 'at' to @ and 'dot' to .  [of course you knew that!]
[so that's 3 dots & an @, right!]

 Many pages on this site are unfinished, some are only just started.
They are here anyway because it is the ideas that are important.
You don't have to believe what
I say about things, but
if you come across a new way of seeing your world as a consequence of reading something here then your ability to think and act freely has been enhanced.
If that be so then my efforts have been worthwhile.
