Introduction
From 1976 to 1997 I was researching in Micro-electronics, Quality Management and Reliability. Throughout that period I came to realise that the human factors are not only the more interesting but the more difficult to understand and get right. Having retrained in personal self-development and holistic health (as a Reiki Master Teacher), I became even more interested in different states of consciousness . . . and how they affect well-being. Hence my PhD on 'Transcending Thought' - and beyond

Was Martin Heidegger a nationalist? His take on 'Place' provides a possible answer.
Experiment Findings
I first drafted this many years ago and tidied it up last year. It summarises a number of metaphysical models that I have evolved and find very useful on my own personal journey to greater consciousness and in my work with others. I hope you find it helpful.
Article
Full-text available
The technological advances associated with Big Data have, rightly, triggered much theorising about the developing nature of knowledge and knowing. But it is not the only trend in academia, science nor in society that brings into question our current prevailing epistemology. With so much in society changing so fast, finding anything certain or depen...

When our CPD requirements talks about Reflective Practice (RP) what do they mean? This article describes how RP is far more than another analytical task: it's about obtaining a different state of mind . . .

Why is Britain considered so poor at turning good ideas into commercial success? Some useful answers come from studying the few success stories, for example this one from the very start of our digital telecoms age.

This speculative paper explores what the recent discovery of the Higgs Field might mean to communication technologies of the future.
Article
Full-text available
That language and culture are inseparable is well accepted. That many people struggle to learn a second language is also not in question. But how might an appreciation of the deeper, philosophical basis of a language and culture help language learners? This paper explores the importance of reading nuances in cultural exchanges and asks whether Chin...
Chapter
This chapter records reflections from three individuals who played a full role in The Experience of Worship project, particularly in the two enactment weeks at St Teilo’s church during June and September 2011. At that time all three were research students at Bangor University, albeit with very different specialist areas. Within the context of the e...
Thesis
Full-text available
A number of recent authors (for example those featured in Beyond Reflective Practice (Bradbury et al 2010) have argued for a repositioning of Reflective Practice (RP) away from " the worst excesses of technical or instrumental view " (Zukas et al 2010, p192). In this paper I propose that RP be considered a soft-skill; that is, as a skill concerned...
Article
Full-text available
Dr Keith Beasley describes an approach to Teaching & Learning that, automatically, introduces students to spiritual principles. A major challenge for academics, teachers or others attempting to bring a spiritual dimension into mainstream education has been the very ideas they’re trying to get across: that the intellect, the facts and theories on w...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis investigates the nature and dynamics of transcendent experience: phenomena I have witnessed in many individuals, groups, and organisations. Transcendent experience is best described as an attitude or way of life that is fundamentally different to what could be construed as the ‘normal’, conventional, and rationalistic attitudes that per...
Presentation

The topics researched today, from international peace to climate change and consciousness, are about real people in the real world. They have to be: only be engaging in such concerns of humanity can funding be obtained. What is being researched is nothing less than ‘what it means to be human’, in all the depth, varieties and complexity that that ph...
Article
Highlights the changes in the world of standards. These changes relate to the whole attitude and approach to standards and the attainment of product that has appropriate levels of quality and reliability. Standards being developed within the European standards organisation CECC represent the best industrial practices and are thus, unlike many earli...
Article
A physical model describes device failure in terms of a series of n microscopic events (such as defect creation) which are describable in terms of an identifiable activation energy. The results show a ‘Weibull like’ time dependence, but the temperature dependence is not of the simple Arrhenius form. Application is made to the ‘dark’ leakage current...
Article
The paper describes a method for 100% testing of the thermal impedance of integrated circuits using a temperature-sensitive parameter. The approach is applicable to automated test procedures, and results are presented on its use in testing a high-speed gate array. Alternative methods for assessing thermal impedance are discussed.
Article
Silicon and GaAs VLSI parameters are tabulated. The capability of Europe, America, and Japan in VLSI technology are compared and trends are outlined. Integrated circuit (IC) custom design methodologies; gate arrays, standard cell, and full custom are highlighted and foreseen development costs with each design route are shown. Use of VLSI technology...

Question
Sounds interesting.
Do you mean as in Chaos (e.g. Chaos: Making a New Science by James Gleick) and Fractals (e.g. Nature's Chaos by Eliot Porter, James Gleick: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/157979.Nature_s_Chaos )?
The Porter book, for me, really demonstrated a very significant 'bigger picture', how a given pattern is repeated at microscopic and macroscopic levels. I'd describe is as a holographic effects: the whole in every part, 'as above so below'.
As a Reiki Master:Teacher I also see this same reflection between levels and/or between facets of something in relationships and feelings. In the holistic health field we explain is as an interconnection between all things. And it's not just a theory. In Reiki healing (and other meditational modes) we can FEEL this interconnection: the pattern is an aspect of the whole fabric of life . . . and to feel a part of it is a wonderful, healing, experience . . .
Is that the sort of thing you're interested in? If so, I'm happy to collaborate!

This wonderful project, working with the Inuit people, is building a machine that can rebuild melting Arctic ice, by harnessing wind power to pull water from underneath existing ice to the surface, where it will freeze as a new layer.
