I am an electrical engineer educated at four (4) USA colleges of engineering. The four universities are Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania, The University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, and Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.
I have been asked to join advisory councils at four universities’ colleges of engineering. The four universities I have advised over for more than twenty (20) years are Temple University, The University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana, The University of Arizona, and Arizona State University.
Simply stated, I have a strong interest in education and support of education. That said, I enjoy learning about how many diverse things work and curious about many topics. My fascination is related to both naturally occurring and manmade things and events.
Looking back at my career as a semiconductor engineer with a focus on embedded intelligence technology in the form of microprocessor and microprocessing technology, I discovered that man-made embedded intelligence in some ways mimics naturally occurring embedded intelligence. Then I started thinking about maybe man-made embedded intelligence could inform on natures embedded intelligence. Man could learn from man-made EI, suggesting that man himself or herself could learn about man the species and all living things.
Furthermore, I started thinking about all forms of matter both living and non-living. Discovering that there must be an embedded intelligence in all things in order to exist from the smallest atomic structures to the most complex structures of matter and organizations of matter and living things and organizations of living things. Embedded intelligence is a simple but elegant concept. Since all “things” are forms of energy, all things found a way to convert from energy, survive, and continue to exist.
There were two choices I was faced with. One, something had created everything in the known universe had to could come from intelligence “within” everything and two, something in the universe created everything from the “outside” of everything.
What was it that which could begin to tell the story that informed all that exists? There must be one essential ingredient in all things and that must be what we call intelligence. Intelligence that informs energy and therefore converts energy into matter at the smallest and the most complex levels of existence.
The sum total of all intelligence I will refer to as “God”. All myths and therefore all religions must have been created to understand embedded intelligence starting with a “belief” in understanding until a more accurate “knowing” is available.
It is through “sciences” or “scientific discovery methods” that we begin to unravel the mysteries of life and all that is observed.
Furthermore it is through understanding that all things both large and small, complex and simple, have an embedded intelligence to exist and survive. All things are comprised of energy at the lowest form and the grandest form. We are therefore all One.
It is my “belief” that through “understanding” and/or the “pursuit of understanding” that humanity/life is sustainable on planet Earth and/or anywhere in the universe.
The concept of “peace” or “perpetual peace” is an idealistic view of the world that evolves through conflict. The more realistic view of our world is the pursuit of understanding. Only understanding can promote resolution of conflict on any level of human endeavor.
Evolution requires conflict with status quo!!
This response was written in Costa Rica during a visit and stay in Ted Humphrey’s condo in Costa Rica in around 2014. Ted is founding Dean of the first honors college in America in July 1988, now known as Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University. Ted and I are sometimes considered “thought partners” by Barrett. I have known and communicated with Ted for more than 20 years about my microprocessor technology, embedded intelligence technology (EIT).
