Here are the standard replies now sent in response to requests for interviews, personal meetings, or for me to speak at meetings, seminars, and conferences, or participate in some event or other.

Interviews/Personal Meetings

I must respectfully decline given that I consider that I have, in the past two years (2012-2014), written and made available sufficient about myself; about my past; about my rejection of extremism; about the somewhat mystical philosophy of pathei-mathos (the weltanschauung) I developed as a result of my pathei-mathos; about my errors, selfishness, and hubris, and about the need to live reclusively partly in expiation for those errors and that selfishness and hubris.

In my fallible opinion, the following compilation (in pdf format) of some recent writings of mine (in addition to those writings mentioned in the Appendix below) may be of some use to those who, for whatever reason or reasons, are curious about me and my past, or who have some professional interest in researching or opining about my past, my character, and my beliefs:

One Viator Among So Many



I must respectfully decline your invitation given my rejection of politics as a form of change; given my now reclusive nature, and given my lack of interest in trying to aurally communicate the spirituality of my personal weltanschauung (my philosophy of pathei-mathos).

Furthermore, and perhaps most important of all, there is the fact of my past mistakes and hubris, spanning some forty years, and so I am fully aware that I am not qualified, and that it would be hypocritical of me, to lecture or even give advice to anyone about anything, having now only a very doleful personal learning from my many lessons of experience.

I reject and disown all my pre-2011 writings and effusions, with the exception of my Greek translations, the poetry included in the published collection One Exquisite Silence (ISBN 978-1484179932), some private letters written between 2002 and 2011, and those few items about my since revised ‘numinous way’ which are included in post-2012 publications such as The Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos (ISBN978-1484096642).

My rejection of all forms of extremism is explained in (i) the 2013 compilation Understanding and Rejecting Extremism (ISBN 978-1484854266) and (ii) Myngath (ISBN 978-1484110744).

My weltanschauung – the result of my own pathei-mathos – is outlined in texts such as (i) the aforementioned The Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos and (ii) Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos (ISBN 978-1484097984)

The development of my ‘numinous way’ into the ‘philosophy of pathei-mathos’ is outlined in the 2012 essay The Development of The Numinous Way.
