Hi and welcome to my site.
I hope you find it interesting and stimulating. The intent is
based on the Polynesian koha, offering. I offer to you my thought
developed over many, many years as I sought answers to various
questions I saw as central. If this site plays some small part
in the further development of your thought and philosophy then
it has achieved all its aims.
I believe in the power of what we think. And as the site develops
you will see the extent to which I believe in the power of thought
in forging our own sense of self and our existence and in shaping
the existence of humankind itself.
The issues and questions are intellectual in many respects, yet
central to my efforts is the question of faith and hope, and of
our spirit. My answers to these questions is not religious in
the normal sense, yet has all the elements of such for me.
Central to my philosophy is the creed 'may passion ever move
me but reason be my guide'. Therefore any faith or framework of
thought to act as such for me, had to be rational, not simply
scientific in the typical sense but able to be discussed and reasoned
in a logical manner with any main tenets being subject to the
type of verification typical of science.
The history of humankind over the last few hundred years has
been dominated by the tension between faith and reason. The command
'believe' being met with the riposte 'prove it'. For me faith
without reason is blind, while reason without soul, ghoulish.
Today reason and faith sit in uneasy truce. Much of what is here
is a personal attempt at reconciliation. But I hope that you see
the route whereby I sought the reconciliation being unusual in
that I first sought answers to what are strictly intellectual
questions, for I strongly believed that in the answers to the
technical detail lie answers to questions of spirit.
Explore. Reflect. Enjoy.
