An Avid Reader and Pupil of Life

Upon becoming a member of the location in 2012, Stanley’s transient autobiography particulars his love for studying and thirst for studying as he trialed totally different strategies of consuming in quest of good well being and wellness:

“I’m at this second studying Martin Heidegger’s Being and Time — this tough e book has stared again at me from my bookshelf since 1973 39 years of stark and responsible attraction — I attempted to learn it earlier than however it’s type was inpenetrable — however now after a lifetime of adverse studying it appears fairly droll in a faintly summary approach — so far as meals is anxious —

I’ve adopted many well being pioneers similar to Nathan Pritikin within the late 1970’s, early 1980’s — he carried an introductory imprimatur kind Dr. Dennis Burkitt who was influential [owing to my admiration of his science], in my choice to decide to the Pritikin weight loss program —

like most devotees the fixed starvation of a fats free regime turned untenable however Pritikin was an ideal educationalist and most of the dietary concepts which have gained ascendancy at the moment emanate from him —

years later I studied Barry Sears “zone” Eating regimen after which I moved on to the Okinawan principle of vitamin — at the moment I’m within the Paleo theories — that about sums it up — my understanding of meals is that like air and water I’m tethered to the solar for whom I exist — my understanding of this existence is restricted by the possibilties that my continued existence makes accessible —

I attempt my finest to stay alert to the possibilties as they current themselves by maximising what consciousness enters my being and presents itself to me – in the end this state of being is non secular and humble in its closest approximation in describing it to others.”

In a 2015 replace, Stanley wrote, “I’ve learn many extra books since this date and extra importantly am three years older — presumably wiser and hopefully more healthy.” A “last observe” posted in 2016 detailed his continued dedication to the Mercola.com neighborhood, which continued for years thereafter:
