Chogan Swan

<p>Chogan Swan is a subversive, wild-eyed, non-violent neoRevolutionary who lives in the country of the mind in the world of thoughts in the universe of ideas.<br>&#13; <br>&#13; In this tiny corner of the space-time continuum, Chogan studied Philosophy and later collected graduate degrees in Business and Systems Engineering from a major US university renowned for its abundant alcohol consumption and passion for a particularly barbaric blood-sport. Go Hokies! :)<br>&#13; <br>&#13; These studies, however, led to an interest in Systems Thinking and how to work together to save the world for everyone.<br>&#13; <br>&#13; It won't be easy.<br>&#13; (But then what is that's worth having?)<br>&#13; <br>&#13; Philosopher, poet, prophet, revolutionary--sentients in various realities have used these words to describe Chogan. Of course, the truth is in the interstices.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>The motivating force for Chogan's ... 'messages in bottles' to the multiverse ...<br>&#13; has been succinctly captured by the words of Harlan Ellison &#8230;<br>&#13; <br>&#13; "Writing is a holy chore.<br>&#13; ... the only organism of quiet communication left to us.<br>&#13; In the soft moments when we huddle alone with our thoughts, we turn to words<br>&#13; ... And there--in the moment when (sentient beings) choose to reason--we can reach them.<br>&#13; It is a heavy responsibility."</p>
