MISSION: Learning is a lifelong challenge, but most people can usually only attend a college for a few years or at most a decade. The purpose of this website is to be helpful by providing important ideas and information probably not found in university courses or traditional literature in a clear concise manner. This website is not part of a nonprofit organization, but we are trying to be scholarly, constructive, nonpolitical, charitable, sympathetic to all, creative, and more independent than nonprofit corporations and universities. This is not a traditional commercial website. Commercial links and trade names are only used where it is unquestionably helpful to the visitor instead of El. For example, the links to a few of El's scientific reports found on the Internet are listed below. El gets no money from the sale of his reports by Government agents.

EL the PUBLISHER: El is an old, disabled, retired government researcher, perpetual student, book addict, webmaster since 1996 and computer user since 1960 with tons of experience in a large variety of fields. El has worked as a volunteer for many charitable nonprofits for well over half a century while confining himself to their narrow missions. In contrast, here he can publish any writings on any out of the box, helpful subject.


We are at a phase in history, when worthy but distressed young people are turning to a variety of lawful and illegal brain destroying drugs and focusing on depressingly vicious entertainment. As a result, a few young people are becoming suicidal slaughterers of defenseless little children and innocent adults while very many more youths ruin or diminish their own lives. Young people need to be told repeatedly by their coaching mass medias, schools, parents, and associates that, “Acquiring knowledge, thinking, hard work, exercise, sports, patience, friendships, love, good diet, and charitable activities are the most powerful and unbeatable self-medications.”           El Penski, December 18, 2012


Respect for a positive religion is essential for a sustainable and workable, civilized society. A positive religion is a set of beliefs, culture, or ideology that fully embraces the challenge of the unselfish and hardworking devotion of our lives to our family, fellow humans, diligence, justice, truth, our mother earth, all forms of life, our own health, and to the understanding of our astonishing colossal universe. Nearly all of mankind's problems stem from deficiencies in this constructive foundation.

El, guest of honor at Army Materiel Command Anniversary,
 with General Frank S. Besson Jr., first commander of AMC on August 1st 1968.
On August 1st 1968, El was one of the guests of honor at Army Materiel Command (AMC) 6th Anniversary with General Frank S. Besson Jr., first commander and founder of AMC. Today, the largest class of U.S. Army ships, capable of holding 15 M1 Abrams main battle tanks, is named after General Besson.

Most people like to complain at length about difficulties, but if some of that energy was devoted to thinking about, researching, and/or rectifying problems; we would all be better off.

A Few of El's Scientific Reports Found on the Internet

Waves at Sunrise -- Beautiful and Awe Inspiring

Composed of elements brewed by nuclear transformations in stars
Propelled by distant storms, bodies, collisions and explosions for many billions of years
Molded by trillions of complex weak interactions which we take for granted
While frozen, chemically bound, and gaseous water are found throughout the cosmos
Liquid water appears to be a rare substance in the universe
Fluid water is a beautiful and miraculous - the most critically important basis of life
Unappreciated by an extraordinarily, gargantuan, violent universe
Except for a small portion of mankind.                              El Penski

Greatest Quotes of All Time          

    In various wordings and not as concisely, the “Golden Rule” has been probably included in the writings, of nearly every religion, culture, and philosophy since writing was invented, about 6,000 years ago.* I think it is the greatest quote of all time. “You should do unto other people as you would prefer others to treat you.
    I consider that the second greatest quote is "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832.

* Issac Myer, The Oldest Books in the World, John F. Osbourne, Baltimore, MD, 1935.

“Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some @$@%# will . . . say that this never happened.”
    President Eisenhower talking about the Holocaust when he observed it first hand. From GoodReads.com, Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes, Goodreads Inc., 2013

"Most of the arts, politics, love and religion are outside the domain of logic,
science, and scholarship while having the dominant effects on humankind."
