“Where did the concept of ‘Quiescence’ come from?”


The concept of ‘Quinesence’ came to me one day while chatting with friends about my research work and when their prodding me to publish it. The conversation also revolved around questions about how I made the discovery of the “Q-factors Universal Laws of Chaos and Order”  and of my profound understanding of the human mind as they knew I have no formal education in either field. In response to their questions, I suddenly blurt out “Quinesence is the journey taken in discovering, embracing and actualizing SELF” as the definitive answer to all of their questions. I went on to expand this expression by adding on… “SELF is the ‘SOUL Enabled LIFE Force’ that guides one in how to live LIFE with greater purpose, meaning and dignity through serving the betterment of humanity”.The ‘SOUL’ is the “Source of Unlimited ‘LOVE’. “LOVE when shared freely creates Limitless Opportunities Virtually Everywhere’ for us to unit in working together to peacefully transform the world around us into one where everyone can live LIFE with Liberty, Independence, Freedom, and Equality.” 

When you put everything together  you get the complete definition for the word Quinesence:

Quinesence: The journey taken in discovering, embracing and actualizing ‘SELF’. The ‘Soul Enabled Life Force’ that guides one in how to live life with greater purpose, meaning and dignity through serving the betterment of humanity. The ‘SOUL’ is the ‘Source Of Universal Love’. ‘LOVE’ when shared freely, creates ‘Limitless Opportunities Virtually Everywhere’ for us to unite in working together to peacefully transform the world around us into one where everyone can live ‘LIFE’ with ‘Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality’.


“A DIVA is someone who manifests their Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations in ways that serve the benefit of humanity.”

By uniting globally in working together we can and will peacefully transform the world around us into one where everyone can live LIFE with “Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality“

I would like to personally expend this special opportunity for you join with us in transforming this “Dream, Inspiration, Vision and Aspiration” into reality by becoming a member of our…

A different perspective on what it means to be a DIVA

Quinesence

One of my passions is taking words that over time evolve to be used in ways to express negativity and redefining them to mean something different and thought provoking. I often use these words as acronyms to help me of retain and recall a very complex concepts in my mind. Here’s is what the word ‘DIVA’ means to me…

“A DIVA is a person who manifests Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations in ways that serve the betterment of humanity”

Gloria Steinem, John Lennon and Martin Luther King Jr. are three of my favorite DIVAs because they all share or shared these similar core values, principles and missions in LIFE…

“The live(d) to serve, protect and respect our fundamental human right to live LIFE with “purpose, meaning and integrity”

“They acted by uniting people in working together to peacefully transform the world around them into one where everyone could live LIFE with “Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality”

“They freely shared their knowledge so that it could nurture the healthy growth and development of creative free thing and original thought processes in others”

I came up with the DIVA acronym back in 2012. At that time was starting up a new business which was going to focus on helping small business owners operate their businesses in self sustainable, more socially responsible and accountable ways. After a couple of months into  the development of the company I found many people confused by the name I was planning to use, which was “My Mobile CEO”. Then one morning while working on my business at Starbucks a friend of mine showed up. This this friend happens to be an attractive women. On that day she decided to join myself and another friend of mine Sara Troy. During our conversation I started explaining these issues I was having with the company name I had chosen when all of a sudden I blurted out that I was a DIVA, At which point they burst out laughing because if you know me DIVA is last last word in the dictionary you would ever use to describe me. I then went on to explain that we are all DIVAs because it is our “Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations” that guide us in how to live LIFE with greater “purpose, meaning and integrity”. From this conversation I decided to call the company “The DIVA Mindset”. You can learn more about this company along some interesting common word acronyms it uses CLICK HERE. Everything then began to progress nice and smoothly until August 28, 2011, the day that would change my life forever.

“It is amazing what can be accomplished with just $20, a broken back and a DREAM…”

 

How far could you go?

“Miracles in life don’t just happen. You live LIFE to make them happen!”

Everything you see and read on this website all began from a recurring dream I started having back in 1995. A dream that I still have to this day. What came out of this dream was an image of  silhouette of a human head with a bright bluish-white halo set against a dark midnight blue background. Inside the silhouette was an carbon atom shown with all of its electrons spinning around the nucleus. At the bottom of the image was the following quote “Feeding the minds that will fuel the future”. The things that I have learned and accomplished since then would fill bookcase, so we are going to jump ahead to April 1, 2011.

After losing funding and spending three years developing an innovative “modular ,adaptable and expandable induction electric motor ” technology that I had invented back in the 70’s. Which the has been given a new life as the n-Gen Electric Power Generator through the Living Orchard’s “Open Technology Licensing” development program. My business partner Sara Troy and I both decided go back into business for ourselves for a while. Then August 28th 2011 the unimaginable happened. Just as I was about to launch my new business venture a business consulting business called “The DIVA Mindset”. I broke my back while getting up to get a coffee refill at my local Starbucks. The injury was not a result of falling, tripping or other accident. It was caused by my Parkinson’s Disease, which I had been living to overcome since 2003. The injury happened because I was unaware that while sitting, my body had totally seized up, then when I stood the stress re-fractured 4 of 11 vertebra that I had previously broken in my life. At the time I didn’t think anything serious had happened as I had  become so accustomed to similar things like this happening all the time. Usually when this sort of thing happened, within a couple of days the pain level subsides and I can get on with my life.

This time however, my seizures began occurring more frequently and became excruciating painful. In January 2012 things had gotten so bad that I had to walk away from my new business venture. and by the end of 2012 I was totally bed ridden. To give you an idea of what I was physically going though imagine giving birth 4 to 5 times a day! My saving grace, was that no matter what, everyday without fail I got up and went for a walk. Freezing cold, broiling heat, torrential rain,  snow, and hail nothing would stop me from going out for my daily walk. While on these walks is when I began thinking about my dream and began building everything you see here today in my head.

Then something really unbelievable happened. On Easter weekend in 2013, I had just returned home from one of my walks and I was in so much pain I just yelled “Fuck it! I don’t know how much more of the bullshit I can take”. No word of a lie, with in 5 minutes my seizures stopped and I have not had one since! I was so blown away I literally ran down to Starbucks to show Sara what just happened. Needless to say that when I got there and everyone who was there say me come bouncing through the door their jaws all dropped.

During all this same period of time, due to my physical setbacks I was unable to help Sara get her new business fully operational and off the ground. Through a series of fortunate events she found herself becoming a radio show host. In May of 2113 I finally convinced her to do her own show on her own radio station. From from their we went on to build the the PLV Radio Network which is now SELF Discover Radio.  At the same time frame I was trying to figure out how to take all my life research work in mindology and transform that into a new business venture and that’s when I realized the incredible gifts my OCD and Brain Trauma Injuries enabled me to do. These are the keys that lead me to begin developing GOLF which was an early version of what is now the Q-Factor.

On January 28, 2014 while out on a walk it all came together and a few minutes after that the Name Living Fractals popped into my head. I immediately turned around and returned home  to see if the domain name was available. As soon as I discovered it was, I took out my last $20 and bought it. Over the next 2 years that real DREAM that began having back in 1995 finally began to manifest into something tangible with true purpose and meaning to me! A small startup company with a very bright and promising future in serving the betterment of humanity by doing something that would enable everyone to live healthier, happier and more productive lives. More importantly our the FREE Q-Factor Calculator web and mobile apps alone, might someday help save the life of someone you know and love! So now you know just how far you can go in LIFE with just “A broken back, Parkinson’s Disease and $20 and a Dream” and now qn even more exciting new journey is just beginning… Making it all come to LIFE!

Despite be written off by society as being , being abandoned by our medical system and forced to live on a meager Disability Income makes it very challenging to live. Yet through it all I am going to succeed in getting this business off the ground no matter what nothing was going to stop me!. All I need is someone to provide me with all the tools I need in order to begin developing the software and a platform to host and distribute it from that I could afford. So I decided to go to one on the biggest software companies in the world to ask if they could help me. The person that answered my email liked my concept and told me about a program they ran, so he sent some info and asked me to email me back an application to the program. I sent in my application and on May 25, 2016, they got back to me to inform me that I was accepted. Don’t ever believe that the big companies only care about furthering their own agenda’s, the company that I approached was Microsoft, and the program I was accepted into is called “BizSpark” Do if you are looking to startup a software company, you should look into this program. Through this program, Living Fractals will be provided with Free access and use of Microsoft software programs, developer network programs and tools, and Azure cloud services for up to 3 years!

I am now in the process of structuring and putting together the “Living Orchard Miracle Makers Network” that will enable us to raise the fun complete developing all the Q-Factor web and mobile apps and get them out into the real world. Then our real work can begin…

  • Helping people live healthier, happier and more productive lives!
  • Working to peacefully transform the world around us into one where everyone can live LIFE with Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality
  • and…

SAVING LIVES!

“Miracles in life don’t just happen…”

 

"Miracles in life don't happen, you live life to make them happen"

 

“You live LIFE to make them happen!”

A couple of friends came up to Canada to Spend Memorial Day weekend here and asked to meet up with me for a coffee to go over few things on a project that I am working with them.  During our conversation one of my friends opened up his laptop and went to my company website and asked me to explain the meaning of my company’s statement…

“Miracles in life don’t just happen you live life to make them happen”

I began by saying that most people after hearing my life stories the first thing ask me “How do I do it?” The simple way I use to explain was by telling that that I simply believe that I can do then I do whatever it takes to make it happen. Unfortunately  presenting this answer always lead people to believing in a fantasy that I am some sort of miracle worker or have been blessed with some type of divine gift.  So I started explaining how I do things using the reverse logic. Starting from fantasy of miracles and leading to my truth… After I started using the new approach shifted people focus from how I did these things to asking me to explain the meaning of statement, just like you did right now. This reverse process enabled me lead them out of the world of fantasy that to the actual factual truth; which is that all I really do is just believe I can do it and then do what ever it takes to make it happen. The only ingredients you need in order to succeed are an unwavering belief that you can do it, an unlimited amount of patience and an insurmountable amount of hard work!!!

At this point my friend burst out laughing, because he has heard me often openly boast that I am one of the laziest people you will ever meet. This a true statement because you will never see me running around and working hard just to end up going no where. The secret to my successes in life is doing the things that no one else wants to do but need to get done in order to succeed. These are often the tasks that require a lot of hard work and/or an extreme amount of patience.

I then ask him to tell me what the word “miracle” means. His response was “A miracle is a phenomenon that happens that we can not rationally explain”. To which I responded with “So in fact the word ‘miracle’ really means “impossible”  So if we change the word ‘miracle ‘in the original statement to the word ‘impossible’ we get…

Impossibilities in life don’t just happen, you live life to make them happen

Which is literally what the original statement means. Needless to say after I showed him the revised statement, my friend now had a really bemused and puzzled look on his face and asked “What do you mean we live life to make them (impossibilities) happen?” I know that no one would actually make a statement like this because people would perceive this in a very negative way just as my friend did. Using the word “miracles” is much more acceptable way of conveying the same message, however the word “miracles” falsely instills the sense that only “hope and prayer” are the only solutions to overcoming the impossible.

I then went on and asked my friend what the word “impossible” means” His answer was “It is something that can’t be done”. The word “impossible” does not literally mean that something “can’t be done”. It merely expresses an opinion that “it is something that we may want or need accomplish can not be accomplished now.  Believe it or not the easiest impossibilities to make possible are the ones that everyone else believe will never happen!!!So  I presented the following example to explain what I mean…

Man created the belief that it was impossible for man to ever walk on the moon. Then one day people slowly started believing we could. Many years later man actual walked on the moon. It this unique ability of human mind to recognize the impossible that creates our dreams, inspirations, visions and aspirations that it is possible.

Then I proceeded to go of on a bit of a tangent about language that went something like this…

Language was created as way to express and record very complex concepts in very simple terms. The way in which language conveys these concepts is through the creation and use of words. Using words we combine language constructs to fully express our thoughts. The word ‘possible’, is a simple word created to express the concept that something  can be accomplish within a given time frame. From this word we also needed create a way to express the opposite concept which is to explain when something can not be accomplished in realistic time frame. So we created the word “impossible” by adding the letters i and m to beginning of the word “possible”. In fact if you look at most of the words that begin with the letters i and m this same general rule applies.

Another question I need answer before we move on is “Why the letters i and m were chosen as the prefix for these words. The technical answer is that the two words have a relationship of opposite co-dependence with one another. In addition to everything we have already discussed. The word “impossible” has a very unique relationship with the word  “miracle”. The word “miracle” is used to explain something how something believed to impossible inexplicably became possible.

I then went on to have a bit if creative fun playing around with the word “impossible”. If we expand the word as follows we get “I m possible”. Now drop in an apostrophe between “I” and “M” we get “I’m possible” Further expansion on this concept gives us the follow statement ” If I am possible, then everything must be possible!”.

The mere fact that we recognize something to be impossible right now, really means that if we invest time in finding a solution we can make it possible! All one has to do is believe and be willing to do what ever it takes to make it happen! Which brings us back to where we began our conversation, but now armed with a more purposeful. meaningful and understandable truth to believing…

“Miracles in life don’t just happen. You live LIFE to make them happen!”


In memory of one of the greatest people to ever grace the earth…

Muhammad AliJust as I sat down to write this article I discovered one of my role models had passed away, The great “Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr”. This was a man who believed and lived life by pursuing the true meaning of LIFE. That being to… “To peacefully transform the world into one where everyone has Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality.”

Here in his own words are his views on the impossible…

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they have been given than to explore the power to change it. Impossible is not a fact it is an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It is a dare! Impossible is potential. Impossibly is temporary. Impossible is nothing”

Muhammad Ali, 1942-2016

Thank you for all that your wisdom has enabled me to accomplish in my own life. Including overcoming Parkinson’s disease. You will always be remembered for the inspiration and wisdom that you have shared with the world .

OCD – mental disorder or birth phenomenon?

 

OCD: Mental disorder or naturally occurring phenomenon?

“The most fundamental human right is to be able to live LIFE with purpose, meaning and dignity”

When we look a someone life Jesse Owen we don’t look at them as being defective, broken, or disabled. We perceive them as someone who is special, gifted and talented sports phenomenon because it happens so rarely. Yet the reality is Jesse was not much different from someone who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder. They are both naturally occurring anomalies or phenomenon’s!!! It requires many years of research and development of special training and education programs for either one of these individuals to reach their full potential in life. The major difference between the two of them is how we have been taught to perceive and treat each of these rare conditions.

OCD is a medical term used to define someone who exhibits an uncontrollable obsessive compulsive behavior. We all have experienced this behavior under certain situations in our own lives. In fact it is a totally natural behavior and it is on of the basic defense mechanism built into our DNA. Here is an example that we know many of you have probably experienced in your life. We all love to go on a vacation. What make this experience unique is that it is something that we choose to do that expends outside of the realm of our normal daily routines, experiences and knowledge. These three conditions trigger a very specific behavior pattern that it outside our normal behavior patterns because we a venturing into something that we do not do on a routine habitual basis.

The stress that is created from the time you decided to take a vacation up to the point you finally arrived at your destination is all part of your body’s natural defense mechanism acting to prevent you from doing any harm to yourself that may result from taking these actions. This this stress starts at the point you begin doing research into all the different places that you think you would like to go. The stress increases from the time you start planning out your trip to the point that you are finally on your fight heading to your destination.

By your departure date your have not only exhibited OCD behaviours, you now have developed a highly elevated level of anxiety. In fact your OCD induce anxiety on that day is so high that…

  1. You run around double checking to make sure the lights are off.
  2. You throw out all the perishable food in the fridge,
  3. You make sure all the windows and doors are locked.
  4. You go through your luggage one more time just to make sure you have not forgotten to pack anything.
  5. You double and triple check that you your airplane tickets to make sure you have them.
  6. … add infinitum

Finally, the pacing starts because you a praying your cab shows up on time so that you can get to the airport in time for your flight. Once you get to the airport you suddenly find yourself questioning yourself again to make sure you have everything you will need. You approach the check in counter and start scrabbling to find your ticket because you forgot where you put them. Finally, you on the plane heading off to your destination.  You finally start to relax because I have forgotten something it too late to go back. If you were to look back at all the stress you created for yourself just to get away and relax you might just begin to asking yourself…. What’s the point of going away on a vacation if this is what I have to go through?

We used this real life experience as an example of how the natural OCD defense mechanism is supposed to work. The difference between you and someone who has been diagnosed with OCD is that the mechanisms that shut off this defense mechanism does not work properly. The most unfortunate thing about OCD is that it is perceived and treated as disorder rather than as an extreme variance of the natural mental though and behavior process. This same issue exists for all medically diagnosed mental disorders not just OCD!

The reality is that OCD is not a disorder it is a naturally occurring birth phenomenon. OCD is merely how the body and mind reacts in response to external conditions that exist in the world around. As Bill and his parents have discovered, if you treat it like a gift and figure out what are the causes linked to OCD manifested behaviors you can very effectively turn this condition into one that is of great benefit to the individual who has this ability. Bill does not have OCD the way he perceives his condition is that he has OCP. OCP is Obsessive Compulsive Phenomenon which is his gifted ability that enables him to effortlessly resolve very complex problems because of his obsessive compulsive thought process.

So we are asking you to do is take a moment and start changing your perception of someone who you know to have been diagnosed with a mental disorder. The next time you meet up with them, take time to understand their condition, and with a open mind help them to see their possibilities in life rather than the societal imposed limitations they have been forced to accept!!! Remember they are just like you but they have special gifts that have been inappropriately diagnosed, treated and publicly miss represented by the medical profession. WE are all human beings and it is a basic human right to live life with purpose, meaning and dignity free from mistreatment, stigmatization and discrimination!!
