About the Site
The name of the website reflects a way of looking at life on Earth, especially human life. In a nutshell:
Noble behavior is motivated by the finer spirit within us. It encourages us, for example:
- To love,
- To trust,
- To be honest and sincere,
- To help the less fortunate,
- To be kind to animals,
- To place the needs of the community above our own desires, and
- To help make the world a better place.
Savage behavior is motivated largely by carnal forces within us, especially our hormones and egos. They compel us, for example:
- To fear,
- To harbor hidden cravings and agendas,
- To mistrust,
- To have thoughts of vengeance,
- To have doubts and suspicions,
- To steal and to horde, and
- To ignore the suffering and injustices around us.
For better or worse, these two forces, the noble and the savage, shape or lives, our relationships, our communities, and our world. They also shape our afterlife and future lives.
About the Author
I was lucky to be born in 1949, at the dawn of the Internet Age, with a curious spirit and a knack for writing. As a child I wanted…
- … to know things about life and the world that no one else on Earth had ever known
- … to understand humanity more completely than ever before understood
- … to grasp more than ever before possible the problems we face and viable ways to solve them
… all to help people live with more consideration and kindness toward each other, and toward the planet and its other species.
Thanks to good luck, deep research, and lots of help from around the world (including from my wise, loving, and supportive wife Regina) and beyond , I’m getting closer to achieving all those goals as I enter the autumn years.
Worldly matters. In the 1980s I worked with leading thinkers from many lands to begin a series of peace anthologies while trying to get a better understanding of our social, political, economic, and scientific systems.
Other-worldly matters. Since 1988 (when near-fatal cancer caused me to rethink life and death) I’ve been immersed in a frontier field of research called ITC (instrumental transcommunication), the use of technologies to receive voices, images, and text from the finer worlds of spirit. I helped establish an international ITC panel that was able to sustain communications for a number of years with brilliant minds beyond our world—those who are sometimes called spirits and angels and ethereal beings, and who streamed earth-changing information to us through our technical equipment.
After giving hundreds of public presentations, seminars, and radio and TV interviews, and publishing a number of books and journals, I’m now withdrawing from the public eye in order to share the best information from those 35 years of research on two blogs I’ve set up for that purpose.
Noble Savage World lets us examine ourselves, our groups and our world more deeply than ever before, largely through a spiritual filter… revealing the greater truths and principles that move restlessly beneath the surface of human affairs… shaping our noble-savage behavior and boiling over into our social systems. (This is the site you’re on now.)
Macy Afterlife contains all things spiritual, including timeless truths, a roadmap of the spirit worlds, and vivid descriptions of paradise communities where most of us will awaken after we die. There are insights on macyafterlife that were never before shared with our world. I promise. (That is the sister site of this one… the spiritual alterego of this worldly site…)
The two sites share some articles that span life and afterlife, including The Human Story collection… but for the most part each site keeps its focus neatly on the appropriate side of the veil.
So, please enjoy this two-pronged journey into human understanding, and join the lively, insightful, inspiring discussions at the end of most of the articles.
Here on Noble Savage World, the journey takes us from the very small. . .
. . . to the very large . . .
. . . through the explorations of science . . .
. . . into the social and political sciences . . .
. . . offering new economic ideas that’ll someday bring peace and prosperity . . .
. . . and through it all, exploring ways to tame our savage side . . .
. . . for the sake of world peace . . .
. . . all through a fine, spiritual lens.
