About The Author: I am 79 years of age. 
I graduated from college with a physics degree in 1967. After a year in
computing, this being the hippie years, I dropped out of a professional career
and just did odd jobs. I finished my working life as a care assistant in various
homes and hospitals. I started a psycho-analysis around 1988 and did it on my
own. The analysis has continued with me for over 35 years, so I know a great
deal about the workings of the mind. By nature, I am a free thinker, in the
tradition of 18th and 19th century thinkers who could range over a number of
disciplines. My interests include psychology, science, yoga, mysticism, health,
history, sexuality, philosophy and ethics. For more info, please see:
