I have had a dozen different lives in one lifetime.
Some were choices between things I wished for.
Some were foreseen in what I call 'remembering the future'.
Some came as a complete surprise.
In retrospect, all these choices were prepared for in my life and then made possible by unexpected coincidences.
From each of these 'lives' I learned more about how the engine of evolution, which is to multiply to the maximum, influences our behavior and thus shapes human history, often with disastrous results that can be predicted.
I am now devoting my life to bringing classical music into young lives and to sharing the photo-ethnographic record I made of people still living in harmony with each other and with nature.
