Ron Price's 2nd Thread of Welcoming Notes

At the risk of setting off another chain of events leading to a possible global or should I say site-warming, I shall post a little piece to introduce myself even more, win the heart of a lady or two and alienate a host of others, drothers and brothers. "Gudonyer", as they say in Aussi land. This is a phrase that sometimes has no meaning, sometimes just fills the air with a pleasantry and at other times has a world of genuine good feelings associated with it Downunder.
________________________________
PUBLISHED AT LAST

Yesterday while on the internet I discovered that if I typed my name, Ron Price, into the Google search box and then typed some subject like history, sociology, media studies, film studies, media studies, poetry, literature, Shakespeare, religion, among a host of other topics/subjects--and then clicked the 'search' spot, a number of websites would appear, listing ten per page, with my writing located at several dozen of these sites or sub-sites. There were literally dozens of search engines, dozens of subjects and dozens of sites where my writing could be located in this way. I tried the following subjects with much success: ancient history, jobs, autobiography, psychology, religion, philosophy, Baha’i, Emily Dickinson, journals, Edward Gibbon, Arnold Toynbee, inter alia.

The list seemed to be just about endless. After four years of posting my writings on the internet under many headings and at many sites, in addition to those above, I have ‘published’ enough to satisfy whatever desires I have ever possessed in this connection or in relation to fame and renown. My fame could not be measured in Andy Warhol's block of 15 minutes but in nanoseconds, thousands of them. Like some vast directory, file, archive or library, my writings could be easily located in bite-size, accessible, chunks.

After 20 years(1981-2001) of trying unsuccessfully to get publishers to place my ideas under a hard cover and after 40 years of writing(1959-1999: age 15 to 55) with little publishing success, here was my writing spread out all over the world wide web. I was moved to say, with Martin Lurther King: "Fame at last, fame at last, by-God Almighty it's fame at last!"-Ron Price, Pioneering Over Four Epochs, October 3rd 2005.

It’s all very autobiographical,
but the way I’ve set it all out
allows for generalizable,
theoretical, expositions,
of doctrine and teachings
in a personalized, subjectized,
individualized perspective----
not at all suitable to autobiography
according to Roy Pascal
one the major theorists
of autobiography in my time.(1)

There is a desire for exaltation here
but not for myself but for the
magnification of humankind's
coming unity and peace that
is, at present, completely
beyond human imagination.
