As far as we can discern,
the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle
a light in the darkness of mere being.
Carl Jung

The web sites and forum linked to this page are primarily a reflection of my own personal interests, but may serve to facilitate an exchange of information with people who might share similar or wider interests and knowledge. As such, the site has no political or religious agenda and no affiliations with any organization.

Note: There should be various forms of site navigation in the insets on the left of every page. However, this site requires ‘Javascripts’ to be enabled within your browser in order to access these navigation features.  It is also highlighted that the site has only been tested against the later versions of the most popular browsers and really requires a broadband connection: See 'Site Status' for general information and ‘My Web’ for more technical details.

Note: A recent upgrade in the use of cookies to web-storage has been carried out: see 'Upgrades and Backward Compatibility' for details.

To some extent, the websites are, and will probably always remain, work in progress. Therefore some sections are still incomplete and mainly act as place-holders for further development, time permitting. In this context, ‘website-1’ is the most complete, while ‘website-2’ has only just started to outline some potential areas of future interest. However, the home pages for each of these sites provides a better synopsis of the scope, status and rationale of the work covered to-date.

So, as indicated, this website essentially reflects a personal learning process and, as such, it is recognized that some information may be in error and will therefore require correction. If you wish to highlight an error or have an alternative perspective, you can use one of the facilities within 'Site Services'. However, if you are likely to  be offended by any views that do not align to your own, especially in the area of theology, it might be best if you look no further, although I hope you will stop to consider another worldview, which remains open to new information.

Education is the soul of a society
as it passes from one generation to another.

By way of acknowledgement, the picture is from Alan Lee's book `Castles` and depicts Carbonek Castle, which is often linked to the search for the Holy Grail. Although, this site is not about this legendary search, it is in some ways about an equally profound search for answers concerning the true nature and purpose of life within the wider universe. However, on a more down to earth level, the site has essentially just evolved as various topics have been pursued in an attempt to expand my own ‘worldview’, which is why the style so often follows the format of a question followed by some investigation of an answer.
