If you are using the Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer and fail to hear the audio, please ensure that your o/s and drivers are up to date. If this still fails please send me an email.

I will be holding off producing the audio files and accompanying .pdf for the remaining slides for the time being. Any non-audio slide can be perused by 'clicking through' the slide (slide 13 is the first example).  A time duration of the video indicates that the audio and .pdf  are available.

0 2 1 5 Introduction Words; Less is more; Just about every adult human being on the planet. Note I wrote the word adult, hence this is not an undertaking that a child or adolescent would be interested in. My definition of these 3 existences refer to the ‘state of mind’ of the person viewing this work and not their age, As I do not have a degree in psychology I had to arrive at this conclusion based on my observations of human nature. To this end I created my ‘GetALife’ presentation which will lead you to uncover which ‘state of mind’ best describes yourself. This work can be found by following this link
