The content of these presentations has been garnered through observation, contemplation, hopefully insight, and, most importantly, experience. Ideas and assertions are simply presented for consideration. The effort is not to prove or convince, but rather to present ideas for one’s own thought, research, innate common sense, and experience.
References are included only if information is specific and may not be generally known. No offense whatsoever is taken at any disagreement or counter-assertion. Many disagreements are due to semantics. Take whatever is useful and ignore the rest. If something fits and is useful, wonderful!

Deep gratitude is expressed to developers and everyone who has assisted in making open-source software available to all. These presentations have been made possible by LibreOffice (Open Office), Audacity, SimpleScreenRecorder, RecordMyDesktop, Glimpse, Gimp, Inkscape, ImageMagick, Pitivi, ffmpeg, OpenClipart, PublicDomainVectors, and Linux. Appreciation is also expressed to FreeThesaurus.com. In addition, gratitude is expressed to all the wonderful artists who have made their work available, for pictures speak to the soul. Gratitude is also expressed to people who have contributed comments that have helped to improve these presentations, and for the expert advice of Sweetwater, which made possible the quality of these recordings and the continued sanity of the editor.

The brilliant spectrum in the banner is the closest representation of the absolute joy of a realm of which I have memory since childhood. No one owns the spectrum. It is used here because of its joy.
In case it seems that considerable work occurred to make these multi-media presentations, it is absolutely nothing compared to what was required to acquire the content.
