Experience is the greatest teacher for educating the human brain. Experience is the reception of living communications received and filed in molecular memory circuits within the neural computational network of neurons and synapses, producing neuroelectronic impulse power within every human brain and nervous system.
This communication is the payback I owe to the community of Superior for having served as my external environmental campus for experimental learning for 80 years of residency, minus three years for service in the United State Armed Forces.
I am thankful for the wonderful memories I can look back on, of the teachers and classmates that were a part of, my grade school education at Martin Pattison Elementary, former at North 21st Street and Lamborn Avenue. My high school years from 1947-1950 were a combination of industrial skills as I completed four years in the print shop working on the schools newspaper, “The Devils PI” and an academic course pursing an English-journalism major serving as reporter of news in the area of history and social sciences.
Simultaneously, during my high school years, I was employed by David and Bertha Kaner, operators of a mom and pop grocery store in the Nottingham building.
My first job after graduation was with the city of Superior Park Department as a laborer and skating rink attendant. On my 20th birthday, I enlisted in the Army Security Agency after basic in Topeka, Kan., and training in crypto-analysis in Fort Devens, Mass. I served 18 months in Germany and finished my tour at the NCO Post Leadership Training School at Fort Meade, Md.
After separation from active duty and back in my beloved hometown of Superior, I attended the Duluth Business University and Superior Vocation School on the GI Bill for training in business administration and accounting. I was employed by many prominent local enterprises in various capacities until 1987 when I accepted part-time employment as maintenance man and van driver for the Salvation Army. In September of the same year, I completed course on soldiership in the Salvation Army and was enrolled as a member soldier of God’s Army serving as a trained evangelist, Sunday school teacher and voting member on the corps council.
After my retirement as an employee of the Salvation Army in 1997 at the age of 65, I began a routine of frequent visitations to the new public library, 1530 Tower Ave., opened in 1992 in the revamped building that formerly housed a grocery supermarket.
I must admit that I am not a professional librarian but that does mean that I’m a neophyte in the area of library use and media researching skills. Since 1945, I have accumulated much information about history and professional personnel who have maintained a personable professional relationship with me as a constant patron of services available at Superior’s main branch and the consortium of the Merlin Library System.
As a fledgling biocomputerologist, I am predicting the integrated disciplines of neuroscience appears to be preparing to witness the imminent arrival of a fantastic future in the progressively speedy upcoming integration of scientific knowledge about the nature and power of communications within bio-electronic energy-processing systems.
