Ray Tomes is a kiwi (that means a New Zealander, not a fruit, flightless bird or stuff for cleaning your shoes).
Retired at age 42 from computer software development to work on the "formula for the universe" based on a study of cycles in everything and developed a theory called the "Harmonics Theory". See http://ray.tomes.biz
I have also practiced Vipassana meditation since 1998 - a method to take out the mental garbage and come out of suffering. See http://www.dhamma.org/ for more info.
Haven't been in here for a long time, but got reminded by seeing an article http://everything2.com/user/Decaversal%20Studios/writeups/Everything2%20Decaversary%20Interviews:%20Oolong by Fergus Ray Murray on FaceBook.
