About the Book

Queen of the academic world for 2,000 years, Philosophy has been in disrepute for roughly the last 300 years. It’s said she’s hopelessly barren. Is Philosophy the infertile party, or have all her suitors been sterile?

This book fingers the suitors. It says they rendered themselves impotent by abusing three crucial terms: “substance”, “substratum”, and “existence”. The author spells out their erroneous definitions and presents the correct ones.

With those three terms properly defined, Philosophy gives birth to the “Holy Grail” of Metaphysics: a non-singular solution to the theory of ultimate particles. That’s a theory which so defines the universe’s ultimate constituents as to leave each physically indivisible but divisible in principle and, therefore, capable of internal change without ceasing to be the same ultimate. Concretely defined, such ultimates render Philosophy so fertile, she can give a philosophical but mathematically precise accounting for neutrinos, anti-neutrinos, leptons, quarks, atoms, galaxies, electro-magnetic radiation, gravity, relatively instantaneous travel to all parts of the universe, etc..

This book is a must read for all Philosophy’s genuine devotees. For, in its pages, Philosophy commences her resurrection, the reclamation of her throne, and her race with Science to find Science’s “Holy Grail”: The Theory Of Everything.

About the Author

Born April 13, 1936, in New Orleans, Louisiana, the author graduated from Jesuit high school there in 1953, joined the U. S. Air Force on Dec. 7, 1955 and was honorably discharged in April of 1960. From Nov. of 1962 to Aug. of 1975, he went back-packing looking for much time to reflect upon self, God, and the nature and purpose of reality. He then cared for his father until his death in 1981 and his mother until her death in 1996.

In this book, the self-educated author of 14 self-published works presents  avenues of thought down which his mind was lead by thirteen years of heroically intense inner concen­tration followed now by twenty-eight years of moderately in­tense inner concentration.
