Overview:  To Elden, the world is a swirl of consciousness, grasped and manipulated by media / language.  Learn the word, sources, symbols, develop techniques to work them, and the power of the universe is within your grasp.  Similarly, avoid or ignore any field of media / language, and be impaired, limited, restricted.  Elden work's both left & right brain, logic & deep structured sciences, and sensitive intuitive perceptions.

Computers, like human intelligence, have the ability to aid, multiply, expand and speed virtual thought, through perception, memory & access.  Elden may be light in human affairs, with just 2,000 named associates, but in a world of thought, he sits on a library of 1/2 million files -containing information on many subjects, in many forms; video, photos, graphics, e-Books, articles, symbols, languages, manuals, books.

Beyond having vast libraries (intellectual items - e-Books, photos, video) Elden is accomplished in his ability to both find and use what he has collected, and more importantly, is experience, efficient, even gifted at his intuitive and scientific method to "Pierce the Veil of Secrecy" and extract arcane and little known information from the ether (cyber space).

Personal Skills:                            ^ - - - top index
