About the Book

To raise his grade average in biology class, New York high school sophomore Kurt Machaen Soldier writes an extra credit report. A patchwork of seemingly insignificant thoughts is hurriedly transferred to paper and handed in as A Treatise on the Nature of Life. A reading of this dissertation leads Kurt’s biology teacher onto a train of thought to recognize the homeostatic force links all known forms of life to a Creator.

Kurt’s treatise is a prophetic instrument given to the North American continent in the last half of the twentieth century that his nation can and will use to impose a moral standard on the future world.

My tome, A Treatise on the Nature of Life was registered with the U.S. Copyright Office on the eleventh day of June 1984. What caused me to seek copyright status to this first initial collection of thoughts was after a lucid flash of insight allowed me to realize the application of simple Cartesian mathematics upon the several different forms of biological life I had categorized. The Cartesian graphs involve polar opposites: pain paired with joy, love paired with hate, and my treatise is written such that those four elementary, grade-school level words (and others I utilize within the graphs of my treatise) are interchangeable with and synonymous to other concise, esoteric words depending upon context. My treatise has been written intending for the ideas to be quickly transmitted and understood by a young person with a remedial understanding of the sciences and also to those honored with summa cum laude.

My treatise collates similarities found within the simple one-celled organism on up to the human form of life, and what was for months of reading and editing only a progression of thoughts transmitted by reading from a medium of ink and paper and then pondered upon in the confines of mind, by utilizing Cartesian graphs to categorize each of the simple-to-complex types of life forms, for the first time I had quite surprisingly transformed a mundane read of my treatise into an almost magical portal where I found myself as if perched within another dimension "outside" of this four dimensional universe of space and time we exist inside of. This perch I speak of is a vista view as if I were sharing a place with God, enabling me to also focus upon certain biological parameters from any one single type of life form or, if I chose to arrange the biological parameters in a different way I am then able to focus upon not one but many different types of biological life within this universe.

The treatise is also a template, a conceptual blueprint to theorize designs for the invention of practical, functional, and prototypical computer systems and devices mimicking biological cognition. A work of fiction, My Quest for Computer Cognition intends to be the spark challenging and motivating future generations toward the realization of computer cognition.

About the Author

Amy Soldier is a pen name. I, Kurt Louis Hanson spent my youth within the rural communities inside the rolling hills situated sixty miles up the Hudson River and north of New York. I became fascinated with animate biological objects. I live in the New York metropolitan area.

Late 1960's and during my early teen years of biological existence upon this good Earth I was presented with three questions of magnitude: how did all this get here? Why am I here? What is the meaning of life? Three seemingly unanswerable questions first pondered by the sages from antiquity, and undoubtedly presented to the students of Socrates and Aristotle and a few select others of unrecorded history, and now for I to ponder upon, I imagined. Following decades I would entertain myself during moments of places to go, people to see, and things to do with the quest to bring answers to these three questions.

Circumstances and events in my early years of life allowed me and not others seemingly destined and more fated to conjure up the notion of Joy as the polar, dual opposite of Pain and have it become a metaphysical parameter governing the biological systems of homeostasis, and thus to write the tome, A Treatise on the Nature of Life.
