Peter Weisz - The Universal Mind
Peter majored in English language and literature and is knowledgeable in ancient and contemporary philosophy, transcendental thought, general science, theology and mystical & esoteric writings, both classical and modern. “I have always been fascinated with the subject of existence and also the concept of God ever since I began learning the “Old Testament” as a young religious Jew. Although I have now moved on from my classical and traditional religious upbringing, it nevertheless gave me my first insights into how people dealt with their perceptions and thoughts concerning the nature of creation and the universe. I have also been fortunate enough to have studied selected Kabbalistic manuscripts of the ages, which has given me some understanding of ancient Jewish mysticism. Although I never had the chance to further my formal education as I would have liked, I became somewhat obsessed with the writings and musings of such great thinkers as Plato, Aristotle, Lǎozi, Gaudapada, Nietzsche, Kant, Descartes, Hegel, Russell, Spinoza, Berkeley and a host of other illustrious philosophers. Trying to make sense of their captivating thought processes was always a thrilling challenge and I spent many long evenings and nights, reading until my eyes closed – or sipping whiskey, smoking cigarettes and engaging in endless debate with like-minded peers – which always seemed to have no adequate outcomes and no satisfactory conclusions. We were, after all, searching for an extremely elusive truth – the meaning of everything! Over the years I became self-educated through research, discussion and discourse”.
