Story
Introduction
During 1983-1993 I lived mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area, working as a computer programmer and software developer (and attended numerous Esalen workshops and Grateful Dead concerts).  From 1986 I developed the Timewave Zero software in collaboration with Terence McKenna.  In 1998 I became interested in calendrical science and up to now have invented seven new calendars, plus supporting software.  In 2000 I was awarded an M.Phil. degree for research in computational physics.  I have been an independent software developer and publisher since 1990.  From 2000 to now I have developed 26 Windows programs, most of which are now available from my Hermetic Systems website, which also includes my articles about calendars and other subjects.  I also created three other websites, listed below under "Contributor to".

I made some inquiries about doing a PhD in philosophy, but wasn't able to find anyone able/willing to supervise my (admittedly somewhat ambitious) study (the development of the modern scientific materialist worldview and its pernicious effects on modern society).  But why bother?  It looks like modern humans are intent on destroying themselves anyway (see Noam Chomsky's article at http://www.atimes.com/atimes/World/WOR-01-050613.html).  Nevertheless I did write a short philosophical piece, which I've put up at http://www.serendipity.li/dmt/mind_body_independent.html   I doubt it will be well received by those academic philosophers who bother to read it.
Accepting the Cartesian mind/body dualism for the sake of argument, this article purports to show that they are independent and so consciousness is not a product of brain activity, still less identical with it.

I also am attempting to make contact with you and sent a short correspondence via your serendipity website. Excellent analysis of the Berg beheading. I have a video, the last one left, that is about to be gone forever if I can't find someone to download it securely. It's a FAKERY ISIS beheading and if the original (all have been deleted) doesn't get secured, anyone doing a video analysis on what they have of still frames will be debunked no matter how good their analysis. It just goes to show that they are screwing up their fake terrorist operations as they use these poor muslims and propagate their religion for the raping of the Middle East I've linked it to the infamous 'Oded Yinon Plan", but know that there are other factions, such as oil and resources. However, the ISIS will be coming to American and if we don't wake up the sleeping masses soon, by 2017 tptb will get their muslim vs propagated christian in the US war on. Thank you for all your excellent work. Julie

In my "Computational Studies of Pure and Dilute Spin Models" I finally got around to cleaning up the faulty HTML produced by the shoddy doc-to-HTML of an early version of MS Word, so it's now 100% readable, and, I think, a good introduction to Monte Carlo simulation in solid state physics research.  If some real-world publisher would care to publish it then I'd include the complete C source code for the simulation program.

Just released a new (and probably the last) edition (April 2013) of the Timewave Zero CD-ROM.  In addition to the DOS/Windows TWZ software, 'Fractal Time', this now has over 30 articles, including transcripts of some of Terence's talks, plus some audio and video material.  See http://www.fractal-timewave.com/articles.php for the contents of the CD-ROM.

What got you interested in programming so long ago? And what was Terence Mckenna like in his spare time?

Just released a new product: Stego PNG.  This is a Windows program for hiding a data file (of any type) in a PNG image file (or a BMP image) using a stego/encryption key (and, of course, for extracting the data from the image).  Only someone who knows the key can extract the data.  PNG files occur commonly in web pages, and you might sometime feel like hiding some data (or a copyright notice) in a PNG image on your website or blog.

In the last 14 years I developed about 30 items of Windows software, with user licenses purchasable for a modest amount from my website Hermetic Systems.  About 10 of these attracted very little interest from the buying public and so were withdrawn.  The 20 that remain are now finished, and I don't plan on developing any more (though I'm open to proposals for writing custom software).  It's time to try something else, hopefully both interesting and income-augmenting.  Suggestions (via the Contact page on my website) are welcome.

Just released some more software. Great for secure exchange of information about that new project you're working on with your colleague on the opposite coast.  Exchange messages, plans, drafts, blueprints, images, secret occult formulae, etc., without concern that eavesdroppers will be able to get at anything.

Just released another new product.  Useful for anyone writing their own web pages who needs to construct HTML tables (simple or complex) without bothering with the (possibly) laborious hand-coding.  Links on the product page lead to four mini-tutorials.

Chico Xavier predicted planetary transition for July 20 2019. That's almost just one year away from Peter Mayer's new date. Xavier predicted that on this end date we will contact intelligent beings from other planets, find the cure for all diseases and develop technologies that will allow us to talk to the dead. If humanity chooses World War III, the North Hemisphere will become unhabitable and most people will migrate to South America. The full prophecy was published in a book by Geraldo Lemos Neto called "Não Será em 2012" ( It Won't Be in 2012 ). Unfortunately, I couldn't find any English sources for this information

The venerable Hermetic Word Frequency Counter Advanced Version software now counts, in one or more text or text-like files, all phrases as well as all words or all selected phrases.  Or more exactly, all phrases consisting of a user-specified number of words (minimum to maximum) which occur at least a user-specified number of times.  The user interface has also been improved significantly.  The product page is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca.htm and a description of the count-all-phrases function is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca/phrases.htm
