Zim lived the first 15 years of his life with his brother, sister, Mom and Dad, in Livonia Michigan a suburb of Detroit Michigan. Our family lived in what was described in those days as a middle-class environment. We were all brought up and attended the nearby Rosedale Garden’s Presbyterian church during this time. At the age of 14 or 15 I began a yearlong study program at our church of reading and studying the Bible with an elder of the church. Later in the year my father found he was to be transferred to Mexico D.F., Mexico to work for AutoMex for two years. The elder at the church quickly wrapped up our yearlong Bible Study Program and Zim (Kim) was awarded the G-d and Country award given for this study. A few years ago, I contacted Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church and gave them full credit for the Content of Zim Mathematics to this day.
Our Christian walk as family and otherwise seemed to be placed on hold. No one in our family attended any church I am aware of during remaining years in public school and even later in College. I started school at the University of Michigan in fall of 1972. I had very little contact with a Christian religion during this time. I suspect my stay at the university was numbered from the beginning, as I liked it too much.
I had a nervous breakdown in my fourth semester. I became homeless, hitchhiking around the country, and then hospitalized in an institution in the summer of 1976. I had won the PRIZE and was given the diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. I managed to complete my Bachelors of Science in Computers and Mathematics, sometime after being released, in 1979 at Oakland University in Rochester Michigan. The medications of the time were sheer brutality.
I found it difficult to maintain employment, and was awarded Social Security Disability in 1985. I entered a Grazy non-profit mental health clinic in 1989 in Denver Colorado called CHARG Resource Center. I have been a client and member there ever since this time. Almost half of my entire life. A friend there introduced me to my wife Ruth at CHARG, and Ruth and I were married in 1991. Ruth has a very strong background in the Christian faith which I immediately accepted. Her lifelong habits of church going, bible reading and study, praying, singing, tithing etc., have played a strong part in the subsequent direction in my life. … I attempted to dabble in my chosen field of Creative Mathematics during this long time. The medications of the day seemed to hinder more than help with this effort. After some years, another CHARG friend told me of some new medications in 2002. Dr Alan Fine put me on one of them.
My mathematics took on entirely new flavors and colors. I have been exhibiting my work at Regional and National Math meetings almost every year. There has been pitifully little argument at these meetings on the efficacy and value of my content displayed there. I sent discs of my content to the Department of Defense this year. In a letter I described my content as providing Mathematics of Biblical Principal / Principle express-ability and logic for any identified object(s) within expression / non-expressions domains. Making the historical dominance of the tree of knowledge and good and evil (expressions of expressions), no longer a dominant intelligent methodology for mankind and earth. The enemy for the US Dept of Defense could easily be identified as Satan. Systems concepts, terms with Math and Logic provided in Zim Math enable freezing H-ll on Earth, until Earth / Heaven appears. This same message was given 2,000 years ago, some of us did not get this message.
Thoughts on Education: During my undergrad days it was discussed and known that students of Mathematics and Computer Science, along with Liberal Arts training such as Science, Arts etc. had sometimes a tendency to go over the edge on contemporary knowledge paradigms. Then as in my case, I am a reader and believer in Bible Principals / Principles... And was a little over the edge myself to start with.
