Subject: Cognition of a Death Experience


On 19 Jun 1977, I was involved in a serious automobile accident.
Due to the injuries received in the accident,
I was left with an enduring memory of being dead.
Before my accident, I was a hardcore atheist.
After my accident, I became spiritual, but not religious.
I concluded that there is something far greater than me at work in the Universe.
Below is a link to my most detailed written recollection of my death.

For 26 years, I was at peace with the memory of my death.
However; after a fifteen year relationship failed in a matter of months,
I looked at the memory of my death in the reverse.
At that point in an attempt to document the thoughts that had besieged my mind,
I started to write daily journals. My mind was racing a million miles a moment.
Typing or handwriting my thoughts would actually cause me to lose my train of thought. 

On 16 Sept 2003, I stumbled into abstract photography.
I suddenly found a new medium to express the impressions running rampant in my mind. Early in 2004,
I awoke from a dream where I saw one of my abstracts reflected like a Rorschach.

Black Creek VI

This marked the beginning of a totally new chapter in my life, and over the next year,
my photography became my go to place to document the events of my life.
I call the form of expression, Montaj.

Out of my Montaj artwork emerged an equation that uses the energy of Einstein, the force of Newton,
and the logic of Socrates to describe a moment of time as infinite.
Below is a link to the artwork that I used to derive the equation that I call the KnoWell.
The equation explains how I was in a spirit state observing the physical world.

Thomas Gold (May 22, 1920 – June 22, 2004) Steady State, Frank'n Sense, Myrrh, Gold

Over the years, I have reached out to those that might listen,
and I have given out thousands of hand drawn KnoWell equations to many people that inspired me in my creation.
One such letter is to Fay Dowker. In the Dowker letter,
I use the KnoWell equation to explain some of the questions raised by modern cosmology.
Below is a link to the Dowker letter.

Letter to Fay Dowker

Below is collection of letters to various individuals in science and religion.

Below is a link to a video that shows the structure of the KnoWell in three dimensions.

Since art galleries want nothing to do with my artwork,
I created a computer model of the Atlanta High Museum,
and I placed my artwork on the virtual walls,
and I made a video of how my artwork would look to me on their walls.


I could write you a novel explaining how the KnoWell emerged out of the depths of my mind.
Maybe if granted the time and space,
I will write a series of books inspired by the experiences of my life.
Till then, I will continue to reach out to those that might listen.

BTW: One of the strange series of coin incidences is that I found is that
Ernesto "Che" Guevara is my blood cousin, and we just happen to look alike.

Your thoughts are most welcome.
