I've been away from Complexity Simplified for quite some time now, except for posting a few photos now and then, and the reason is that I've been busy writing something else. I've been reluctant to post much about it, though, since I suppose I was afraid I might jinx the process by admitting in public what I was doing.
But, today, all that reluctance went away when I finished the draft of my book and immediately wanted to post something saying, basically: Hallelujah!
And, boy, am I tired.
I've been working on this book, all told, for over fifteen years, but the last 3.5-month push has been the most difficult. Still much to do, including finding an agent and/or publisher, but I am celebrating tonight.
The working title of my book is "God the Great Attractor: Spiritual Wisdom from the New Science." In it, I show how I arrived at spiritual insights from the science of complex systems through a seven-year series of events that were initiated when the attractor that governed my life went through a bifurcation. There were other insights involving self-organizing systems, the fundamental importance of cycles in life, fractals, chaos and emergence.
I have written about some of these topics here and hope to write a few more posts on the other topics. And I also hope that, someday, all of you will be able to read my actual book!
And, now, I think I'm going to go put my feet up and have a glass of wine. Cheers!
