My Current Explorations

Nature of Reality

Although I’ve always been curious about the nature of reality and our place as humans in it, yet after 2021, I’ve had to rethink everything I thought I ‘knew’ about ‘reality’.

Humanity’s True History

Researching the age of various artifacts from a prior high civilisation, which changes our understanding of Humanity’s history on earth.

Truth about Religion

For most of my life, I have been an active Christian. 

Since 2021, I’ve been deeply looking into each aspect of my belief and identity, delving into the work of scholars of the Bible, Torah, Quran, as well as other narratives and writings of older civilisations like the Sumerian, Indian, Australian Aboriginal among others.

This has been a fascinating journey so far.

The UFO Phenomenon

I feel that the exploration into the Nature of Reality and the Truth about Religion is incomplete without considering the UFO Phenomenon which has been documented in various ways for thousands of years.

Near Death Experiences and Spiritual/Quantum Phenomenon

I feel that the exploration into the Nature of Reality, the Truth about Religion and the UFO Phenomenon is absolutely incomplete without considering various other Spiritual/Quantum Phenomenon like Near Death Experiences (NDE’s), Shared Death Experiences (SDE’s), Life Between Lives (LBL), Past Life Regression (PLR), Reincarnation, Remote Viewing (RV) among other well documented and some scientifically validated phenomenon.

My Health Journey

Sleep

After screwing up my sleep and health in 2014 – 2016 by consistently sleeping 3 – 6 hours a night, I’m working on ‘reducing pressure and noise’ (as Alex Charfen talks about), optimizing sleep and creating a space from where I can create value optimally, and rebuild momentum.

Nutrition – Modified SCD

Nutrition and wellness has been one of my longest passions.

Currently doing a modified version of Tim Ferris’s Slow-Carb Diet (SCD).

My modified version is 6 days of low-Carb, Carnivore, and 1 day of eating almost anything.

Exercise

Working on rebuilding consistency and momentum with this after working through the effects of a lower back injury in the gym in 2014 that has needed ongoing maintenance.

Following a modified version of Martin Berkan‘s Reverse Pyramid Training (RPT), which along with a Primal Way of Eating version of his LeanGains Protocol, helped me hit 11% body fat in 2013.

 

Supplementation

From experience and research, supplements are not necessary, but a nice to have to maximise output from the above three critical factors.

Considering that our current food supply isn’t as nutritious as what our ancestors had to eat, mainly because of our current practices like mono-cropping, it is nice to have a quality multi-vitamin and some minerals included. 

As much as I like the idea of ‘greens’ powders, most seem to have ingredients that I’m not thrilled to ingest, so at this stage I avoid them. But like with all things, I’m experimenting with ideas and options. 🙂
