Welcome Internet Neighbours!
Why am I writing & producing the graphic essay, ‘Bud The Brain, which shall shortly be available for downloading as well as in paperback form?’
Inquiries, criticisms & discussions not only welcome but encouraged!
Baruch de Spinoza says the duty of a philosopher is to
1) Taste union with nature
2) Produce true ideas in himself
3) Makes these ideas known to his neighbours

‘Bud the Brain Explores The Question Of Existence’. When I was young I tried to find the answer to why we exist, in religion. Now that I am 72, nearing the end of my journey, my questions are more modest. I am content with ‘how we exist, asking science and philosophy. The finite cannot explain the infinite but only stand in awe & gratitude.
After years of academic frustration, I found that graphics can free me somewhat from the tyranny of language.
As time goes on I shall probably add to this preface. Thanks for reading.
