Sybe Starkenburg was trained in navigation for the Merchant Marine. Much of his life was spent sailing the oceans, from the rank of Cadet to the rank of Captain, on cargo ships, bulk carriers, tankers and tugs. For fifteen years he managed marine diamond mining vessels on the West Coast of Southern Africa.
He is now retired and joint bookstore owner with his wife of 40+ years. The bookstore is situated in an idyllic village on the grounds of a farm, i.e. in the middle of nowhere.
The shop is his reference library, his office and source of inspiration.
His specific interests are science, philosophy and Dante’s Divine Comedy. Not knowing where to find Truth after abandoning religion, and wanting to share the experience of his search, he decided on writing the ‘The Tightrope of the Absurd’.

The Tightrope of the Absurd
by Sybe Starkenburg
The author has created a unique path to understanding the third dimension of life. Acknowledging the role of religion in life, he says that one does not have to be religious in order to find spirituality or the third dimension. Through the conditioning of our upbringing, religious beliefs may even be a stumbling block to finding ones true self, free of pre-conditioning or opinions.
