Interests: Electric Universe, Honest Science Age: 62
I spent my extremely happy childhood in a small Scottish mining village, where I went through the primary and secondary education system of the 60's and 70's. My first significant job was as an apprentice electrical engineer with the National Coal Board; a training period that gave me an excellent grounding in theory, safety, and resourceful thinking. I then spent one year as a volunteer, teaching electrical theory and English language in a technical secondary school in Wad Medani, Sudan, where I dropped any notion of having prejudice in my life and picked up the moral guidelines that have been with me ever since. I married Nora, the love of my life in 1977, and we have two sons together, Ben and Jon, both good and healthy men now. I was employed by the American mini-computer company Digital Equipment (Scotland) Ltd. for 15 years, where I worked in the areas of training, manufacturing and design, before leaving to set up my own business in 1992. Since then until recently I have run as sole-proprietor the NaT systems business, an Information Technology support service to small businesses and private individuals. My hobbies have mainly always been technical and I have been a radio amateur with the callsign GM4DOZ since 1972. In more recent years since our boys left home, I have found myself studying; astronomy, cosmology, physics, quantum theory, relativity, time, philosophy and parapsychology. Most recently, I have come across a set of theories that I bought in to rapidly and fully and which I shall remain a supporter of for the rest of my life; these theories are those of our Electric/Plasma Universe. I now consider that I have the job of educating myself fully on these theories, and of spreading the word to those who are prepared to listen.
