I will try. :) Sounds like a challenge. I majored in Philosophy for a few semesters, but I still feel like a blank sheet...

It's a pleasure to meet you, Kent. I've been eyeing at "Fragmentation of Being and the Path beyond the Void" since yesterday, and I can't wait to get my brain into it.

Welcome Kent,

It will be an asset to the Alliance to have a philosopher on board. There are many theorists and practitioners represented in the Alliance but I have not seen a philosopher enter the discussions. I look forward to your entries.

Hi Kent: Welcome to the Alliance. I think you will find a great number of members here who are familiar with Pacifica and the general content you have enjoyed at their conferences.Your site looks great!--I love that you are offering up your work and hope you will be willing to add a few tidbits here in the Forum or the Blog. I am always on the lookout for new Depth material to tweet so am excited to find yours. The "Fragmentation of Being..." work especially jumps out to me and I look forward to reading it. Again, welcome! Glad to have you here. Please don't be shy--just jump in anywhere...
