I was Chief Scientist and Marketing Manager at a billion dollar company that manufactured communications satellites. We launched them on the Space Shuttle and other rockets. My job was to sell commercial satellites to companies that used them to broadcast TV and telephone services. AT&T and its foreign counterparts were typical customers.
The trouble with selling satellites is nobody can see them. I couldn t take a sample case around or sell them out of the back of my car.
All I had to sell were the beliefs about satellites we could build. At the end of our four-year sales campaign, I wanted my customers to hold a large number of positive beliefs about our product: our company had more successful satellites in space than our competitors, our management was better than the competitors , customers could make a lot of money from our product, and so forth. I had to orchestrate the communication of beliefs about good design from about a hundred of our technical specialists (most with technical Ph.Ds) with their counterparts in the customers organizations. Their beliefs were of the best way to build solar cells, transmitters, batteries, etc. I also had to sell the beliefs of who the specialists were as personalities: that our guys would be good to work with in overseeing the four-year design and building of the satellite.
I had to understand large scale systems and be able to grasp the technical essence of many specialties. Working in a hight tech firm allowed me to continually be exposed to new ideas and learn to understand the essences of theoretical arguments. Many times I would spend days working with a specialist in a technical area distilling the key ideas of their technical achievements or research priorities. If a customer wanted to know about the latest research in battery electrolytes, we would create a presentation on the subject. If a customer wanted to know about the latest radio modulation technology, we would create a pitch.
My own technical specialty is communication theory. I hold patents on satellite antenna systems. I hold a patent on a satellite (music) broadcast receiver for automobiles. I hold a patent for a circuit that may be in your cell phone. I managed the development of the first CDMA mobile telephone.
This process made me sensitive to the personal beliefs people held, their secret agendas and life patterns. It was useful to identify the people who played the games of life to lose and try to keep them out of our games. It was useful to be able to identify winners and those of high integrity. I made a lifelong study of recognizing the beliefs and patterns in peoples' lives. I came to understand that everybody s life is a masterfully created story, their life work. I also understood that their life a year from now would be a logical and perhaps a creative extension of their life up to now. I have two published books on the subject.
I used these diverse skills in preparing Beyond Einstein s Horizon: Science, Remote Viewing, and ESP. Many believers in Science don t believe in remote viewing or ESP. For them, I have presented a scientific argument to convert their beliefs. Many believe Quantum Mechanics provides a scientific justification for remote viewing and ESP. For them, I have shown how Quantum Mechanics has nothing to do with remote viewing and ESP. For those who believe in remote viewing and ESP because of personal experience, I have provided a legitimacy argument. In this book, I presented a new scientific paradigm or belief system.
I have a BSEE degree from Stanford.
