I love the truth; I like to speak the truth, and I strive to live by it. But if you put a gun to my head and ask me to go by a title, I would identify myself as a metaphysicist, and I should add that this attribute of mine is precedent to my humanity! As a metaphysicist I study the metaphysical architectonics of reality and its reflection in the sensible and the intelligible world of experience; I like to see how essence finds forms, and how consciousness constitutes objects. My method is primarily inspired by Vedanta Metaphysics and Husserlian Phenomenology, and particularly Husserl's method of Phenomenological Reduction. Rather than speculative reasoning I like to base my observations on direct, transcendental experiencing of the essential structures of Being. I started the blog NOEMAYA to share some of my experiences in this field. For more serious and often technical writings I started a book series called "Nondual Perspectives" and published the first volume, titled "Nondual Perspectives on Quantum Physics" in 2014. I have a degree in theoretical physics from the University of Maryland and currently teach physics and mathematics.
