Bio: Jack of all trades, master of none, but oftentimes better than the master of one. Trained Astronomer and Geo-Systems Scientist. Univ. Münster, London, Oxford, Bergen, Hawai'i Pacific, Honolu, Exeter, OU, USNY etc. pp. BS, M.Sc., MA, Ph.D. (I think - lost a bit track over the years), Hapkido Blackbelt, PADI Divemaster, boater, long distance swimmer - you name it. German, US was my 2nd Home before the Bush junior rapture; as Billy Joel sang in "Allentown": The diplomas on the wall never helped us much at all. Or something along that line. The older I get, the less I know, or so it seems. Certainly I am less and less certain about anything. Meanwhile Confucius said "Those who care about fancy food and clothing are not yet ready to have a say", and the Buddha held up a flower, with a smile. "Don't believe anything", he is said to have said at another time... for which I love him, since I have never been much of a believer. That's why a Philip K. Dick quote became a quasi motto for me: "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."
