A Little Book of Essays
As an essay writer, Don is interested in matters broadly related to cosmology and the underlying causes of human behavior. Being a layman in both subjects, he doesn’t try to educate others but rather strives to clarify his own thoughts about the natural world where he is bound to exist and the society in which he is immersed.
He says that writing is helpful in maintaining a focus while researching these two subjects and for eliminating non-essential material that would otherwise cloud important issues.
About Don Reightley (Corrales, New Mexico Author)
Don Reightley has long been fascinated by a cosmos that gave rise to the Universe humans gaze at in moments of wonderment. He is also absorbed by the more down-to-earth causes that make humans behave in the often curious ways they do. After years of observation he found a way to combine interests by exploring the relationship that exists between human nature and nature itself.
The inanimate Universe behaves strictly according to natural laws set down in the Language of Mathematics. Humans must follow this cosmic mandate but, because of our conscious brain, they seem to possess an alien freedom of will. He cannot help wondering: What does this say about us and about the nature of consciousness?
