I am Tony Sky, aka Compu-smart, one of many authors who write articles. I have no graduate degrees or post-nominal suffixes after my name. So below is my CV.
I am a lifelong resident of London, where, from ages 1 to 25, I lived in numerous residential institutions -- (no asylums) thankfully. My world has been filled with people of every race and religion, every type of individual with every type of mental and physical disability, disorder, and life circumstance. I was fortunate to have lived an unorthodox life, and I have met some of the kindest, most genuine people in the world, aswell as the complete opposite. Including con artists, rapists, robbers, murderers, every kind of criminal imaginable. And, some of the people (staff/officers) who were responsible for caring and looking after us were just as bad!
My history and experience have taught me to live and think in-and and-outside the many boxes, cubes, octagons, and other shapes of life. I am a critical thinker, a problem-solver, an inventor and innovator, and an artist.
As a critical thinker, I do not take everything at face value. I mentally store information like a jigsaw piece, and I fit the puzzle pieces together as I learn more about a given subject, until the picture becomes bigger and clearer. I write here, based on the evidence, research, investigation, and experiences I have continued to amass throughout my life. I consider myself to be the human equivalent of a Carbon Nanotube Sponge of life, soaking up and purifying the toxicity that people sometimes cannot see.
There are no rose-tinted spectacles or blinkers in my world.
I discovered (from personal experiences) that the healthiest food in the world can kill you if you choke to death on it!
Subliminal Messages, Microaggression, Systemic Injustices: I believe in humane living. I recognize the manipulative nature of subliminal advertising, passive bullying, and the many microscopic systemic injustices in the world, which are so vast and insidious, they often go unnoticed. I share my insights gained from decades of study, observation, and experimentation. I am my guinea pig: telling me NO is an invitation for me to find out what will happen -- e.g., "Don't watch too much TV or your eyes will go square" = invitation. (My eyes did not go square.) "Don't look at the light from arc welding" = invitation. (That night, my eyes felt as if they had broken glass in them.)
Substance Abuse, Dependence, and Addiction: I understand that many people have been impacted by legal and illegal substance abuse, dependence, and addiction as well as smoking, poor diet, and other lifestyle choices. And that many physical and mental problems could have been prevented with the right information to live a healthy life. Our ancestors did not have the expertise, knowledge, and information we have available to us now. Lifestyle plays a vital role in our overall mental health and physical well-being/ability.
Internet, Computers Articles: I have been online since Windows 1998. I have experimented with and used multiple browsers, antivirus, and anti-spyware programs, and multiple web chat clients throughout the years. My curiosity has sent me all over the public Web. I know first-hand how amazing and useful, and how dark and dangerous, even deadly this other world offers us from the comfort of our living rooms..
Thanks (you're still here!) for taking the time to read all of my CV... (if you did:)
