BOOKS IN THE WORKS & OTHER WRITING PROJECTS
Currently In Development for Pitching Publishers
I'm proposing to create a Loving Conversations relationship communications model that includes permission oriented agreements designed to help anyone (including facilitators, counselors and other professionals) better relate & build the skills and opportunities to have loving conversations–with your staff, clientele and circles of loved ones, in family, communities, or organizations anywhere~
The book proposes to include various dialogue design approaches that carefully can draw out personal experiences on all sorts of topics helping readers connect with people, even those they don’t agree with. It certainly will be an undertaking to research, document and write this however, it is so worthwhile to reconnect people and unite communities simply by having delightful loving conversations!
The Loving Conversations project intends on providing specific methods filled with case-study examples of breakthrough relationship reconnections, personal healing reconciliations between folks & groups that seemed impossible and irreconcilable. Sometimes the hardest step is the first one, reaching out to start.
BIDECK theory of mind
In psychology, theory of mind (ToM) refers to the capacity to understand other people by “ascribing” mental states to them (that is, surmising what is happening in ‘another’ mind). This takes place in a thought modus plane I describe as the BIDECK and is theory of mind insofar as the modus operandi of rational behavior needs to be interpreted between minds with meaning revealed in their statements and expressions, as it's the only thing being directly ascertained.
Examining BIDECK allows for the ability to go deeper into how (MORB) a Modus Operandi of Rational Behavior attributes mental states via— Beliefs, Intent, Desire, Emotions, Conditions and Knowledge (BIDECK) — to ourselves and others as we're able to examine each level of perception and thought in BIDECK.
“As humans we assume that others want, think, believe and the like, and thereby infer states that are not directly observable, using these states anticipatorily, to predict the behavior of others as well as our own. These inferences, which amount to a theory of mind, are to our knowledge, universal in human adults” (Premack & Woodruff, 1978).
Having a theory of mind allows us to understand that others have unique beliefs and desires that are different from our own, enabling us to engage in daily social interaction as we interpret the mental states and infer the behaviors of those around us. The BIDECK book will introduce a definitive concept for
After its first identification in 1978, a large body of research in this field of ToM has accumulated, studying the developmental pathway, neural basis, and deficits of the theory of mind. This writing proposes there is more of the filtering processes and levels of choice discerning and conceptualizing one’s supposed rationale of self and the projection of translating identity onto others. The BIDECK process and its contents are rarely fully revealed, so the existence and nature of (MORB) mind must be inferred. [Premack, David; Woodruff, Guy (December 1978). "Does the chimpanzee have a theory of mind?". Behavioral and Brain Sciences. 1 (4): 515–526]
In offering a BIDECK model we can begin to better understand what is inferred towards a more comprehensive understanding of how this process works aligning to what other people conjure up in terms of their Beliefs, Intent, Desires, Emotions, Conditions and Knowledge (BIDECK) about the world which then contrasts within the perimeters of social constructions and perceived ‘noun’ reality.

Grand Tour Ideas
As a contemporary philosopher my goal is to produce a significant body of work that is intended to impact the direction of our conception of reality. I am hoping that the Grand Tour Ideas evolves into my magnum opus and a key document of Ultra-Being, Self Lib and IGOism. The writing attempts to revive ontology through an analysis of MORB as it exists in the "Mass Trance." GrandTourIdeas.com
The work should also be noted as a Cosmology (from Ancient Greek κόσμος (cosmos) 'the universe, the world', and λογία (logia) 'study of') as a branch of perspective and metaphysics dealing with the nature of the universe. The term cosmology was first used in English in 1656 in Thomas Blount's Glossographia, and in 1731 taken up in Latin by German philosopher Christian Wolff, in his Cosmologia Generalis. Religious or mythological cosmology is a body of beliefs based on mythological, religious, and esoteric literature and traditions of creation myths and eschatology. While the Grand Tour incorporates main elements of the science of astrophysics, my ideas are concerned with the study of the mentalistic view of the universe and MEST (Matter, Energy, Space & Time) "I" perspective.
PRYONS.com WHAT Are Pryons?
PRYONS by my definition are a form of a mental and emotional disturbance triggered by I.D (internal dialogue), distraught memory or other association to repeated thought patterns (RTP), along with negative behavior and unpleasantness that ‘pry’ on the subject’s consciousness.
Pryons playing out can become an observable mind state and often interfere with the ability for the affected to reason situations clearly thus hindering one's ability to attune (be ultra-being fully present, polite and engagingly attentive). They hinder reasonableness in Loving Conversations.
Pryons of sorts can be considered a nervous system annoyance that replicates itself in mental states that are often characterized by irritation and distraction from one's conscious thinking. It can lead to emotions such as frustration and anger.
The property of Pryons when activated can be measured on a scale of annoyance or irritability depending on the level of impact or reaction to the stimulus.
WeltSchloss is a combination of German words I put together that translates into "World Dwelling" which signifies the ability to explore the qualities that define our view of the world around us. This requires a level of conscious awareness within the confines of how we imagine our existence. This ability to interpret meanings and how they are assigned to us become revealed as disclosure or 'I' realization.
This writing is a philosophical exploration into how we arrive at recognizing our own interpretation and understanding of events and thought processes that allow for deeper comprehension of potential realities and how to best share insights.
IGO existence is built upon the notion of a self born within a story; the idea that our identities are shaped by the accounts we give of our lives. The central tenet of IGO vs Ego supporting my theory is revealed in the ability of all individuals to shape their lives by extending multiple instances of a described ‘self’ in action.
IGO is projected through the BIDECK whose mental processes give a sense of self autobiographical narratives that exist primarily in a story whether or not its based factually or can be confirmed. For my definition, the IGO is that portrayal in mind of the self playing out in those various scenarios, replaying incidents to imagining new possibilities or just simply romantic fantasizing - its the 'selfie' of the mind's perception of being played out in imagination. It's me viewing 'I' go.
IGO is a neologism which in linguistics, is a relatively new and isolated term, it is a word, or phrase that nevertheless has the potential to achieve great popular or institutional recognition, and becoming accepted into mainstream language.
UBE3 = Ultra Being an Excellent Example of Enlightenment as a living ideal
Ultra Being is the full realization of potentiality which as a book concept is simply discovering one's sense of the present moment which enables one to be fully engaged with life. In a whole-brained regard Ultra-Being posits engaging in any activity full heartedly. Likewise in positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one's sense of time. [Ellis, Gary D.; Voelkl, Judith E.}
In another sense, Ultra Being can also be compared to ideals such as self-actualization, in Maslow's hierarchy of needs, as the highest level of psychological development, where personal potential is fully realized after basic bodily and ego needs have been fulfilled.
Self-actualization as a word was actually first coined by the organismic theorist Kurt Goldstein for the motive to realize one's full potential: "the tendency to actualize itself as fully as possible is the basic drive ... the drive of self-actualization."[Goldstein, quoted in Arnold H. Modell, The Private Self (Harvard 1993) p. 44]
Carl Rogers similarly wrote of "the curative force in psychotherapy – man's tendency to actualize himself, to become his potentialities ... to express and activate all the capacities of the organism." [Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person (1961) p. 350-1]
Dr. Steven Covey first introduced the concept of what a paradigm was to me after reading his "7 Habits..." book. I was fortunate enough to privately challenge him about the idea in an interview we did (recorded on cassette!) in particular I was referencing the exercise he gave in the book imagining one's own funeral.
He was very understanding stating at my younger age visualizing one's death and what oration one's friends might eulogize reflecting not just one's goals accomplished but defining the quality of character was a paradigm shift for me.
A paradigm means a set of overarching and interconnected assumptions about the nature of reality (Maykut and Moorehouse 1994). Any paradigm is built on a number of assumptions that deal with the nature of reality. The paradigm itself cannot be tested; however, it provides the basis on which we build our verifiable knowledge. A paradigm provides the largest framework within which research takes place.
A paradigm shift is the term first used by Thomas Kuhn in his famous 1962 book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions to describe the process and result of a change in basic assumptions within the ruling theory of science. Kuhn discusses two views phases of research in science: normal and revolutionary.
During the normal phase, science advances by advancing in the directions predicted by existing theories. The postulates of a paradigm are assumed to be self-evident truths during times of normal science. However, they are not self evident during times of change or when there is a shift from one paradigm to another.
A scientific revolution occurs, according to Kuhn, when scientists encounter anomalies that cannot be explained by the universally accepted paradigm within which scientific progress has thereto been made. The paradigm is not simply the current theory, but the entire worldview in which it exists, and all of the implications that come with it. When enough significant anomalies have accrued against a current paradigm, the scientific discipline is thrown into a state of crisis, according to Kuhn. During this crisis, new ideas, perhaps ones previously discarded, are tried. Eventually a new paradigm is formed, which gains its own new followers, and an intellectual battle takes place between the followers of the new paradigm and the hold-outs of the old paradigm. After a given discipline has changed from one paradigm to another, this is called a scientific revolution or a paradigm shift.
In the world of research, the use of quantitative research methods, sometimes also called the positivist approach, is the dominant paradigm. Qualitative research, on the other hand, is based on a fundamentally different set of assumptions and postulates. It constitutes what we call an alternate paradigm- that is a paradigm that is not yet fully developed.
Here are a number of examples drawn from diverse fields of human endeavor of the different paradigm shifts that have taken place over the last few centuries:
• The transition from the Newtonian physics worldview to Einstein's Relativistic worldview
• The development of Darwin's theory of evolution that replaced the dominant creationism.
• The English King signing the Magna Carta that shifted rights away from the absolute king
• The Prussian military model based on the General Staff that revolutionized warfare
• Mass manufacturing after the introduction of the assembly line.
