A Natural Philosophy of Information
I am in the process of devoloping a Natural Philosophy of Information, and in constructively engaging relevant scholars, teachers, and students across all disciplines in co-developing its approaches, implications, and predictions across the entire spectrum of disciplines, with the aim of evolving the firmament of thougt for the rapidly evolving global Information Age.
The method is to comparatively assess and synthesize present western Theories of Time, Space, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Biophysics, Systems Biology, Information, Mind, Artificial Intelligence, Congnitive Science, Psychology, Sociology, Art, Health, Governance, Economics, Technology, and Industry, with the foundations and findings and implications of the Eastern frameworks on the same topics, at a personal, metaphysicical, ontological, epistemological, mathematical, scientific, artistic, and social levels.
The primary assertion of this approach is that the essence of the mathematics and physics of this Natural Philosophy of Intelligence is to be found in the fuller development of a Quantum Theory applicable on a macroscopic scale, one which encompasses and more precisely explains the entire range of observables in the known universe.
Physical scientists might consider and dismiss this project as another grand unifying theory, social scientists may see this as another overzealous plan to save the world, and theologians may see it as another assault on dogma. From the conservative perspective of their respective disciplines, they are right to defend them, and I particularly welcome their criticism.
The present generative stage of this effort is for those who are, in principle and practice, critically but constructively engaging new paradigms, and who would never sacrifice their intellectual or personal commitment to serve the human interest in favor of any narrower interest, especially the group or self-interest inherent in their particular discipline or profession. I say this pointedly to those whose intellectual habit leans toward skepticism of the destructive sort. Creativity is a conscious intention and modality of this work, and I prefer the collaboration of those who believe that practicing it with integrity is the basis of all human progress.
My humble purpose in coming to this effort is simply to help real individual people experience full personal autonomy. By providing a better basis on which those who lead to integrate and advance current perspectives, systems, methods, and actiivity to better serve their particular duty. My faith is that, by centering our pragmatic efforts on the foremost challenges of the present human condition, we will unfailingly draw closer to more useful universal truths.
Those who need our help are abundant -- at the base, as of today, some one-fourth of the human race is projected to never drink a clean cup of water in their lives. That number only grows with the complexity of the good -- a balanced meal, effective shelter, safe transport, fair trade, empowering education, fulfilling contribution, just governance, optimal health, environmental balance, full personal autonomy, and ultimately, the full experience of their human potential as Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

I was born in January of 1977 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. My family emigrated to central New Jersey in late 1978, where I was raised until 1991. We then moved to Northern Virginia, where our family resided until 2000. I resided with my family until 1993, when I moved to Durham, North Carolina, for univeristy for three years until 1996. I moved back with my family in Northern Virginia for two years from late 1996 to early 1998 to work. I then moved to Manhattan for work for three years, until the spring of 2001. I then moved back to New Jersey from 2001-2005, residing with family for one year, then moving to New Brunswick, NJ, for two years, for university. For six months in 2004, I lived in Boston, MA, for work, and in late 2005, I moved to Washington, DC, where I currently reside (as of January 2008). I was a citizen of India until age 14, when I became a naturalized American citizen. I retain Non-Resident Indian status.
