A consistent desire to understand human Nutritional Health which has led me to Ayurveda/Vedic Teachings which in my opinion is based on a living system framework.

I have had quite the Curiosity and practice to develop consciousness, spirituality, energy, meditation, and teachings over mindfulness.

8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?

I think my main guiding principle has been to fix things (problem solving)- physical objects, myself, my wife, the main being for most of my adult life was to be healthy physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally now I see all of it was done from a value return paradigm. The role humans played for this was from an authoritarian worldview. One after another I gave an expert my power and relinquished my free will and personal agency. This overall has been a long path to what I consider the true work. At one point when my health got to a level I didn't know how it all was going to work out, I contemplated about life; why was I here? I came to the realization that when it comes down to it; it's all about a series of moments. I regretted not designing for more joy, being more present, investing in grounded action that was something I had to grow into, while contributing to something Beyond Myself that was meaningful work. To be loving and compassionate to all life. So my frame has been shifting for awhile and the role humans play in it is collaborative, solidarity, co-evolution with everyone having their own purpose and agency.
