Richard Alan Miller (Physicist), (1944-)
Richard was born in Everett, WA into a lower middle-class family, his Mother being a famous psychic, and his Father (retired Navy) working for Boeing in the field of electronics. Both his Junior and Senior High School Science Fair projects (1961-2) were used on the Mariner I (1964) fly-by to discover water on VENUS. From then on, he was a top "draft pick" for Navy Intel.
His writings reveal a wealth and depth of knowledge and experience in three major fields; Alternative Agriculture, New Age Physics, and Metaphysics. Before many leading edge concepts became trendy topics, Miller was (and is) in the international front lines of research, experimentation and documentation.
Miller began working in the "X-Files" world of Navy Intel (Seal Corp. and then MRU) in the late 60s, and now has amazing experiences and conclusions to share. As an original black ops team-member, Miller's research in the field of paranormal began as a graduate physicist working 10 years with Navy Intel/(Anesthesiology.) During this period numerous foundational papers, including "A Holographic Concept of Reality" and "Embryonic Holography" were written.
Miller began his career in Magick when he could not find answers to his questions in Physics. In 1972 he open Beltane Occult Books and Supplies, a retail herb store with the finest collection of metaphysical books for sale anywhere within North America. He also began to write for Gnostica News (Llewellyn) and Green Egg (Church of All Worlds). By 1975, Beltane was then the primary regional wholesaler for the herb and spice trade.
His focus on botanicals made him the leading world authority on herb farming, processing and marketing. With numerous bi-lines and websites, Miller's visionary work with Alternative Agriculture continues to be 20 years ahead of most curves, including concepts such as sustainability, inter-cropping, and Forest Farming.
Offering fresh perspectives on Metaphysical traditions his books, papers & articles integrate his scientific research with time-honored metaphysical concepts, leading to such works as The Modern Alchemist; The Diamond Body, a Synergetic Approach to Mysticism. His latest boo ESP Induction Through Forms of Self Hypnosis is part of a new 3-book series on The Non-Local Mind In A Holographic Universe.
He is a Swiss mason and also belongs to O.T.O., A:.A:., and several other German Blue Lodges. He has been initiated into a number of pagan cults, including Church of All World (1974-) and Coven Camelot, Star of the North (1973-). Miller is listed in Who's Who in the World, America, and the West, and now writes for Nexus magazine.
