Who is Jack Bosworth?

Before entering college, I expected to get a PhD in physics, and do fundamental research. By the time I was in graduate school, I decided modern science was too limited and limiting, and I would need to do my research outside my career. I got my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Michigan in 1975, having studied meditation, astrology and nonphysical reality enough to begin astral traveling. I learned about the Qabalistic Tree of Life and began to Work the Paths. By 1982, I was able to work the highest Paths. At about that time, I went through the First Dark Night of the Soul. As a result of much work, at the end of 1987, I began to go through the Second Dark Night of the Soul . . . and survived. After retiring in 2017, I published a fundamental physics book called “Science Restored” (available on Amazon of course). Science Restored is basically an introductory book to help scientists to expand their studied into the forbidden topics, including astrology and nonphysical reality. I wrote most of a fundamental psychology book to help psychologists understand the nature of human consciousness, and how to find, analyze and treat psychological problems instead of mainly treating the symptoms. But I gave up on that, deciding that it is way too far ahead of modern science. I hope I am proven wrong about that, and I may still finish that book and publish it. I will not go into the more advanced things I have learned on this public page. Suffice it to say that what I have written here is a tiny amount of what I have learned and discovered.

My mundane career has not been uneventful. Periodically, I developed something new. In graduate school, I developed a new function optimization method based on genetic algorithms. I presented my findings at an international conference on function optimization at Princeton. The world leaders in the field accused me of falsifying my data, and shouted me off the podium. Today, stochastic function optimization is a normal and accepted approach. I have found that people in general, and scientists in particular are not tolerant of truly new ideas. My professor wanted me to do my dissertation on the function optimization, but I chose to develop Software Reliability by Redundancy. My dissertation was a theoretical framework, and I think no one ever looked at it even though my professor tried to get several grad students to take it another step. Today, the accepted approach to software unit testing is a simple application of my dissertation, although I’m sure no one else knows that.

While I worked at AT&T Bell Labs, I came up with a new architecture where each user had his own computer. The managers didn’t trust anything that strange, and put it through two peer reviews before making the company $40,000,000 implementing it with one customer. Today, architectures like mine are the standard. I saw what was happening with microcomputers and early Microsoft, and I tried to convince the Bell Labs UNIX group to make UNIX more user-friendly to compete with DOS. They told me with considerable pride that personal computers were toys, and they ignored me. As everyone knows, UNIX is basically dead, and Microsoft owns the world of computing. Just before I left Bell Labs, I was working on a macro-based approach that allowed a business user to define their own reports of data from a database. Their biggest customer renewed their contract with Bell Labs for $50,000,000 because of my project. But Bell Labs dropped my work as soon as I left. As most business people know today, it’s easy to connect a spreadsheet to a database and define reports in a flexible and immediately way. Again, too bad for Bell Labs.

Over the years, I came up with new stuff. I do hold one patent, but after my experience with that, I decided not to patent anything else. The last notable mundane new thing was my unbreakable encryption method. In 2008, I was working on an Air Force Contract, and I was going to write a white paper warning the Air Force about the dangers of ever-increasing computing power available to hackers. I decided to try to solve the problem before I wrote the white paper, and I solved it on my own time and equipment. When I showed it to the architects, they wanted to patent my method, telling me that when the NSA saw it, the NSA would be “forced to classify it top secret”. But before they paid me anything for that work, my contract ended, so I took the encryption method with me.

Throughout my career, I hid my primary work so that potential employers would not be scared off. At this point, I am retired, so I can share more, as I have here.
