“There isn’t the slightest shred of evidence
that the material world exists independent
of observation
" (Fred Alan Wolf)

Nature” and the “nature of reality” most fairly describe my interests from my youth growing up on a farm near Eldridge, Iowa, to the present, at my location in Iowa City. The nature aspect of my interests include my early involvement in sports and the outdoors, beginning with baseball and proceeding to tennis, racquetball, golf, collegiate level volleyball, (The University of Iowa volleyball club) bike riding (five Ragbrai rides cross the state of Iowa from the Missouri River to the Mississippi river) kayaking, camping, and environmental activities and organizations (The Nature Conservancy, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, National Parks Conservation Association, Environmental Advocates, and Citizens for Community Improvement).

The Nature of reality aspect, often referred to as metaphysics or ontology, also began at an early age with my intense interest in science of all kinds, stimulated by the space race beginning in the late 1950s and culminating with the moon landing in 1969. Then, in my late twenties I happened upon a subject that I call quantum reality—an ontology that emerged as a result of the quantum revolution in physics. Years of reading and research in this subject resulted in many book reviews posted on the Amazon web site and the eventual publication of two books, the first in 1994 and the second in 2011, both of which are available on this web site. I also became involved in other science and philosophy organizations and activities including: sound therapy, myo/skeletal massage, MAPS (Mid-America Paleontology Society) IAF (Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers), and MUFON—the Mutual UFO Network for which I am a field investigator and Star Team member.
