The author has not a single pet-degree. He did not become the famous this-or-that that he could have become despite being friends with famous artists whose names he chooses not to drop here. But he earned the love of several famous women.
There are any number of attainments he did not get and perhaps not need because there are a number of characteristics he never lost. Thank Goddess, he grew up before labels like ‘indigo’ could have been attached to him.
He has no Ph.D. despite having written – and published! – two groundbreaking books on a medical subject. He did not write the Great American Novel even though he perhaps wrote it in the early 1980s, but it hasn’t been published – yet. And finally, he may never get the Nobel Prize for Physics despite having developed a plausible theory explaining additional dimensions of time.
