I have a BA, in History at that. I joined NPA as the result of a chance encounter with Neil Munch at a joint SWARM AAAS/NPA joint meeting in Flagstaff some years ago. I'd been unhappy with the explanations coming from establishment physicists for some time and his description of NPA opened a new avenue for me to explore. I've written no papers and, as age takes its toll, am pretty sure I never will. I intend to maintain my membership in NPA as a spectator only. I enjoy learning about many of the ideas that are unavailable elsewhere.
