Italian-born Jim (Luigi) Scarano migrated to Australia at age 13 with his mother and two younger siblings in 1956. From no knowledge of English at all, we find him passing his ‘leaving certificate’ exam by the time he is 19. At age 30, he obtains his BSc in Electrical Engineering, is married, and will spend the rest of his working life as an Electrical Engineer and Technical Writer, while in his spare time, he continues his relentless academic pursuits: obtaining a BA in Psychology and obtaining a Diploma in Sanskrit. He becomes a part-time teacher of the Alexander Technique while continuing his study of esoteric philosophy, yoga, meditation and various other ‘self-knowledge’ type of practices. It’s only in his retirement years that he looks back at world events over the previous 50–60 years only to find that crime, economic problems, national as well as domestic issues have not changed for the better, but continue to become headlines in the daily news. As a result of his cogitation and objective analysis, he discovers the basic-root causes of all these problems and hence his current work.
