Never heard of James H. Burkhalter? You're not alone. But that is the very point of this autobiography. I wrote it for my future progeny, yet to be identified, simply because I would like to have had something similar by an ancestor I had never met, giving his take on his current events, to me history. I also wanted to emphasize that one doesn't have to be a celebrity to have an interesting life story. Those close to me who have read it have encouraged me to publish it, so why not? It also gives me a platform for ideas I have on Economics, Politics, Religion, and Science. The latter might be amusing to future generations, if this gets to them. Hope you have a good read! N.B. The Science section contains some original unpublished speculations in theoretical physics on Black Holes, on The Big Bang, and on photons, expressed in lay language.
