section seeks to highlight the lives and subsequent works of the
people I feel have not only left a lasting footprint within the human
race, but whom I would like to feel that I have drawn some inspiration
for myself over the years....my Raison D'etre.
during my schooling I was introduced to the work of Newton, and
through college education the Orwellian, Darwinian and Marxist theories/works
reared their heads.
Michael Foucault emerged for me during my university experiences, as did
the works of Albert Einstein. Stephen Hawking appealed to
me following my university years, and certainly inspired
me to pursue further learning within the field of physics.
Tolkein has appeared to me in both childhood, through
books, and perhaps more recently in adulthood through
the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
aim here is perhaps to offer an overview of the work
these individuals have offered us....from the theories
of Einstein and Darwin through to the magical world
inspired through the literary abilities of Tolkein.

All of course are brilliant human
geniuses who dedicated most of their lives to a quest
for knowledge and understanding. Whilst it is true that
there are many aspects of the human race that instill
