ALL seventeen hundred koans of Zen are simple
pointers to our "Original and Featureless Face"
You cannot describe it or draw it,
You cannot praise it enough or perceive it.
No place can be found in which to put the Original Face;
It will not disappear even when the universe is destroyed.
IT WAS during the early 1980’s that Michael established his reputation as a guru
of Interactive Multimedia Communications, as a consultant to Acorn Computers
and the BBC Computer Literacy Project, whilst still employed in the U.K. by the
Civil Aviation Authority as an operational Air Traffic Controller.
He was deeply involved in the BBC Domesday Project and absolutely instrumental in Apple’s move into this area of activity. His involvement with the original St. Louis Zoo Project and the development of the concept of a Multimedia Resource Centre in the Art and Design faculty of Wolverhampton Polytechnic, led to the establishment of an educational resource centre at the Zoo, which became a significant pre-cursor to Nicolas Negreponte’s One Laptop Per Child initiative.
He has continued, in this vain, to sow the seeds of wealth creation, from both perspectives of the mobius-strip-like journey of life, with greater emphasis on the dissemination of the wisdom of knowledge which results from the wealth of understanding.
Extremely dyslexic, Michael has developed innovative ways of thinking which help him to adapt to social conventions of thought and action, as well as to provide both brilliant alternatives and brilliant assists to
them. His significant intellectual insight is that people think in pictures as effectively as they think in words.
WHO AM I …
I am a student of consciousness.
I am a dyslexic who has travelled the “world of the lexics ” - in order to prove to myself that there are indeed
methodologies of communication beyond “words”, that HOMO SAPIENS has to adopt - as part of the global
skill-set which IS needed to assist nature in the qualitative advancement of the evolution of LIFE on earth.
"I am what I look like. These six little words are big enough to cover the whole reason for our plight.
They say it all. Or, to elaborate somewhat: I am here, for myself, what I look like over there, to you - as if
our distance made no difference! On this morass you and I try to build our lives. No wonder they are cracking
up. To render them safe and sound we must rebuild them on the bedrock of I am what I see I am here;
what you see is just one of my regional appearances. I alone, at centre, am in a position to say what
those myriad appearances are appearances of, and how different they all are from the one Reality that's
given rise to them, from what I am looking out of. On this I am the sole and final authority."
"See what at this very moment your own face looks like - the Face you had
before you, or indeed your parents, were born - there is NO THING hidden.
If you look within and recognize your own ‘Original Face', all secrets are in you."
WHAT DO I DO …
I am working with ALL of those who would to establish an internetwork
of networks of Thinking Environments to service the mutually beneficial
needs & aspirations of … Global Social Responsibility.
