After my masters social psychological research and theoretical psychology (or philosophy), I had to be independent, because, to find the truth about social reality, only independent confirmation could verify or falsify my belief system. Therefore I developed software (a completely different line of work), which is now the application of this philosophy.
Here is the abstract of my work:
"We should all have our vision and mission, allowing others to be different or alike, as they choose. Our dialogs should be rational, emotional or compassionate, attempting to independently confirm each other and ourselves. We should prefer truth and ethics over power and politics (dialectics), building our world and making life meaningful - not a kindergarten.
Our two sources of morality and religion (Bergson 1932) coordinately reflect themselves, "here" in recollection and "now" in construction. The one, the environment/other/reality, consists of material space and immaterial time. The other interacts with it, the organism/self/belief, as what-is-sensed reflects itself in sensing, while knowing reflects itself in what-is-known.
Interaction between our sources is motivated by either power or truth. Power motivates politically within groups, as truth motivates ethically between groups. Truth matters, not power. It is found by looking for independent confirmation. The contents of space, or what-is-sensed (facts), and time, or what-is-known (ideas), thus reunite "here and now", in space-time.
If and when space and time reunite, so do temporalized space and spatialized time, or content-shaping-form in recollection and form-shaping-content in construction, called constructive recollection. Coordinated reflection between sources and independent confirmation within sources, maintain truth within-facts-between-ideas and within-people-between-groups."
