Muir here with my current reading schedule. In brief, I read and study in much the same way as I watch video narratives ie read or listen to a chapter, think about what what was written, lookup references made, sometimes write the author(s) with questions, the historian Richard Carrier, PhD for example. I generally will then move on to another book on my schedule, basically the same as people watch television, only instead of watch one episode before going to on to another show, I read a chapter before going to another book.
Fact or Fiction, regardless of format, whether text, audio, or video, regardless of topic, if the material fails to resonate, to provoke questions, it fails my interest.
The following listing of publications are all books, and do not include my current study of peer-reviewed research papers.
Of late my reading is centered around ‘Refractive Meta-Material Lens’ theory and practice in their potential for enabling my concepts for precise, Non-Mechanical Targeted-Focus of Microwave Energy.
