ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born into a Sikh family and received my primary level education at public Christian schools in the United Kingdom and remaining education in secular public schools in Canada including a Bachelor of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering and a Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering. I currently reside in Vancouver, Canada.
What led me to undertake putting together this site? As a small child I was secure through religious teachings that we are all ultimately 'taken care' of by God (from a very early age, my mother would regularly take me to the local Sikh Gurdwara (temple)). At the age of five, one evening after watching a TV program showing a fictional account of dead people lying in open coffins in a large room compounded with the anxiety of having to take a train the next morning to a town I had never been to before, I became quite distressed while lying in bed trying to fall asleep with the thought of death. After what was about a half hour, I was able to put my mind at ease (as it was only the thought of dying and not wanting myself or my loved ones to die too early and wanting long lives for us prior to joining God again). But the thought that we might not possess something like a soul that is eternal and survives physical death and that we might not continue to exist after did not enter my brain until the age of nine.
In 1993 I came to the realization (actually going back probably from about a decade earlier I had thoughts of writing in this area from a wide and a diverse perspective as I was capable) that I had a duty to compile this information with my interpretations and any insights I might have for the benefit of others (as well as myself). I was planning on writing a book at the time but with the subsequent reach of the internet, I wanted this information available free to as many people as possible.
This website had it's origins in 1994 (though I had wrote some points in 1990) when I started writing down my various thoughts and ideas about life after death on memos and then filing them away. By the end of 2001, I had accumulated much of what now makes up this website and thereafter started organizing and rewriting it into a more structured and cohesive format. I would like to thank my mother for all her support and encouragement for my pursuing academic studies in the sciences. This website was first put on the internet on October 16, 2003.
