Dear Prof. Dr. Frank Tipler:
My wife asked me, “Who would you like to meet here in New Orleans?” You may be a bit surprised that I said, “Frank Tipler.” I have two of your books (one with John Barrow) on my shelf.
We had moved into town a few years before just to settle down. We had been traveling the world in search of the best business owners — ethical, transparent, successful, locally generous, and always mentoring — for our television series on PBS-TV stations in the USA. It was called, Small Business School. The show also aired around the world on the Voice of America-TV. It kept us busy for over 14 years, 51+ seasons and 300+ episodes!
From 1972 to 1980, I was actively pursuing studies in the foundations of physics (EPR and Bell-Bohm-Leibniz), then as related to the foundations of theology (Plato, Findlay, Torrance, Farrer). My starting point was to answer, “Can there be a moment of perfection in the quantum world?” I was affiliated with Boston University’s Center for Philosophy & History of Science, Colloquium for Philosophy of Science. I was not a good scholar and my doctoral work floundered so I re-emerge into a business that I had started in 1971.
I’ll provide some references so you can check out some of our more recent work.
PS. An overview of rather idiosyncratic work down within the family’s school in River Ridge, just up river from you and before the airport: https://81018.com/home/
Update: We are no longer in New Orleans, but I would welcomed a chance to meet the next time we are in town and a chance to open a dialogue.
