Welcome to a motley collection of things written mostly by me about the
theory and practice of mind and soul.

ISBN (Paperback) 978-0-6468-1796-5 May 2020 117 pages
This is a series of stories about the lives of eight of my ancestors, beginning with my cousin, John (born 1923), and ending with my great grandfather, Alfred (born 1817).
The idea of the phrase, 'luck of the Fells,' originated from narrow escapes in wartime, but is actually about one's attitude to the opportunities and difficulties that come along in our lives.
GET LIFE A Personal Philosophy and Practice
This is my very short, 2019 book - only 5000 words. It's a summary of the main principles outlined in the longer books, with a little bit extra.
Printed copies are available direct from me at no charge and it's also a
free download from here.
Dancing with the Unknown -
FEELINGS and Everyday MIND and LOVE
is my most concise and complete book (paperback, 145 pages, published April 2017, ISBN 978-0-9943332-1-6).
It contains what I think i've learned so far as a human being and a biological scientist. Knowing so little, relatively speaking, has become an asset now.
Seized By Agreement, Swamped by Understanding. This book is a collection of papers we put together for a visit to Australia by Humberto Maturana. That was 1994, but his way of thinking is as relevant to day as it was then.
The individual Chapters are available for Free Download here.
The Twin Pines book about growing up on our family farm is a free download here.
There are also stories of various kinds including didactic dialogues and
presentations at Conferences and workshops and a few poems
None of my 160 published scientific articles are here, but there is an old CV in which many of them are listed.
