In accordance with the United Federation of Planets Rules of Engagement, I am
required to disclose that I am a convicted WordSmith - a repeat offender! - a hard core
Interdisciplinarian and a habitual user of Metaphors, which you are now in with me.
Based on having served 30 years hard-labor in business and management consulting,
five years researching and writing a series of successful novels [over 100,000 copies
sold, based on royalties received], followed by a decade-long interdisciplinary study of
the 'unconscious', 'creativity' and 'physics of writing' (while serving as college faculty),
I am convinced that you --- that we all --- unconsciously know how to write. (1)
And I believe you may be able to write far better than you may think or may have been
told otherwise by well meaning, but 'misguided' and 'misinformed' instructors (2)
promoting failed 'modern methods of instruction'. Methods of instruction Albert Einstein
believed can 'strangle' our 'holy curiosity of inquiry'. Which Einstein believed 'aside from
stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom'. For without the freedom to read across
the disciplines --- science, literature, engineering and art --- to explore, to know and to
dream, our natural innate creative potential will 'go to wreck and ruin without fail'. (3)
