About the Author

After spending years trying to figure out life, death, God, Satan, the Devil, heaven, hell, suffering, Buddha, Krishna, Christ, love, sex, dreams, eternity, infinity, samsara, nirvana, mind, matter, energy... and just about everything else of the sort I could possibly get my hands on... I finally reached the 'end of the line'. At 29 years old I realized directly and undeniably that knowledge of the type I sought is (in any way conceptually or intellectually) fundamentally impossible. With this I also realized in the most complete sense that there is no such thing as a permanent 'ego' or 'self' as I'd always previously assumed by convention. Having experienced these strange and wonderful but somewhat terrifying realizations about the underlying nature of mind and reality, I felt compelled to share. While books of this kind cannot communicate what is incommunicable (of course), they certainly can help one lay the intellect to rest (or at least, such was my own experience). They can help show that ontological knowing according to any conceptual framework whatsoever is in fact fundamentally impossible, and that ego (or 'self') is really just an ever-changing, never-fixed construct of mental phenomena. Hence the book, "Message in a Bottle: The Obviousness of Infinity: An Ontological Inquiry", my feeble attempt to offer what I've learned (or unlearned, I might say) to anyone who similarly seeks 'the end of seeking'. I currently reside in Houston, Texas and work as an automation specialist. I have a lovely wife and beautiful 4-month old son. Among a few other things we enjoy movies, the outdoors, good food, and gardening. Right now we think we may want to move to Virginia some day.
