A Few Thoughts on Research

Since the events of Summer 2002 I've been stockpiling material that has provided a springboard for more in-depth research. My motivation has waxed and waned over the years so much research remains. I'll still be researching this material long after the memoir is published. Always seeking to refine explanation as understanding increases. 

Listed below are many of the topics I've studied and some of which I need to study further. In a near future post (I know that's rather vague. Sorry.) I'll give specific examples of sources from that research. Keep in mind, I'll only touch on some of these topics in the memoir. 

There will be written, video, and audio examples. Both fiction and non-fiction. The sources of the material for Alienus Tempus has come from and will include personal purchases, loans from physical and virtual libraries, loans from friends, and open source and common domain material from the Web. And last but not least, personal experience.
