Nurturing Natural Talent

Ever since Luanda could talk, she has danced, sang, and performed. And because she was born into the middle of my documentary “Einstein Wrong – The Miracle Year” which spanned 8 years of her life, Luanda always felt at home in front of my camera. But what I saw through the viewfinder throughout those first few years of my daughter’s childhood was something beyond normal. When it came to natural talent in dance, singing, and performing it was quite apparent to me that she had talent well beyond her years. I more often found myself filming her performances not as […]

Goodbye Mom…

All moments in life are unique. But some moments are more permanent and poignant than others. On Saturday, February 18, 2017, at 10:30 am in the morning, I found myself alone with my mom, holding and patting her hand, smiling at her, looking straight into her eyes and talking with her, knowing she was slipping away, but still there. There is nothing more intimate than spending the last minutes of one’s life with someone. I could have told her how much I loved her, what she meant to everyone, or cried and say I would miss her. But all those things […]

How Physics Evangelists Are Ruining Science

I almost purposely tripped physics evangelist Neil deGrasse Tyson while attending a gala event at the International Documentary Association (IDA). I attended most all the meetings of the IDA for my documentary film “Einstein Wrong“, but this one was special when I found out that Neil was giving a short speech at this particular event being held at the Director’s Guild in Los Angeles. I wanted to look directly into the eyes of the one of my foes. I was sitting next to my wife who was not too thrilled at being there when I remembered that we had passed Neil on the way […]

My Diet Testimony on Forks Over Knives Website

It’s a great honor to have my testimony on the very popular website Forks Over Knives. I’m coming up on almost 2 years on the diet and am doing great! Here is my story for the entire world to read: http://www.forksoverknives.com/breaking-cycle-of-heart-disease-with-diet-not-drugs/

Painting a New Picture of the Universe

Change always comes from outside the status quo. The John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society (CNPS) is that change. I have been involved with the scientists from the CNPS for over 20 years and the universe according to these scientists, is much more fascinating and more logical than the multi-dimensioned, paralleled, paradoxical universe that mainstream has basically invented during the last 100 years. There is enough work done by CNPS scientists to last researchers and engineers hundreds of years but the work of the CNPS remains in practicality, unknown to the rest of the world. Efforts like my documentary film “Einstein […]

Why Mainstream Science is Stuck

Into the Underground Back in 1992, I met a physicist, Dr. Ricardo Carzani of Argentina who wanted me to help him get his idea out into the world.  Dr. Carezani had shown Einstein’s theory of special theory of relativity wrong, corrected the problem, and found new equations which told a very different story about the universe. Over 20 years later, I have found more about the dysfunctional state of modern physics and cosmology than I did helping Dr. Carezani. In 1994, I took Dr. Carezani’s work to 9 mainstream physicists and there I found the first resistance. They asked me […]

Why Meat, Dairy, and Oil Are Not Good For You

I didn’t start my current whole-plant based diet for a fad.  I didn’t even start it to loose weight or to avoid cancer.  In January of 2014 at the age of 54, I ended up in a ambulance with severe chest pains on my way to an emergency room.  My grandfather died from a heart attack at age 60, my father had his first heart attack at age 55 and then triple by-pass at 72, and I was told there was nothing I could do about it. I had symptoms of pains shooting up my left arm and tightness in […]

Our Move to Florida from California

After almost 25 years in California, our family moved to Florida. It was time.  Doris and I had done some incredible things throughout our stay in California.  Doris started Samba Collection in our art Studio on Daisey Avenue.  I had my first art show there, was accepted into the new artist gallery at the LA County Museum of Art, co-authored VisualText with Amnon Meyers, we started SambaLa, we owned Tonys Restaurant for a number of years. SambaLa was by far our most expensive hobby but in many ways the most gratifying.  I found myself, Doris and our friends doing things we […]

The main site at http://www.naturalphilosophy.org has a new template or look, as well as a feature that will solve a great problem of our last […]

Why NLP++ Is Different

My degree is in Linguistics.  I hung out with really amazing linguists for almost two years while getting my masters degree and know what an amazing thing human language was, is and will be.  Linguistics can be very complicated and linguists’ job is to make sense of it. Linguists are often confused with polyglots: those that can speak many languages.  In the modern era however, linguistics is not about that.  Rather, it’s about the “systems” that make up languages. Today’s linguists break up the world of language into sounds, words, phrases, sentences, semantics (meaning), and discourse (story).  They like levels — easy-to-understand […]
