|The Book -
Cynthia – my wonderful wife who gave me the space and understanding to put in the
thousands of hours over the past thirty years to research and write this book. Love you Cindy.
Chandler – my son, work out buddy, and permanently on-call technical support guru who has
kept in working order the five computers through which this book has passed.
Robert – my son and ongoing consultant who through great tact, patience, and insightful
suggestions has helped me stay focused on developing the basic concepts of this book.
In a broader sense this book is also dedicated to all those who: struggle through the daily
challenges of life; who strive to make this a better world; who seek meaning from the

Giordano Bruno - Italian philosopher, mathematician and astronomer burned at the stake by
the Inquisition in 1600 A.D. because he extended the Copernican hypothesis to its logical
conclusion; stating that the sun is merely one of an infinity of stars orbited by an infinity of life
supporting planets, that stretch across boundless space.
