Peter Baksa, is an investigative journalist who recently authored "The Point of Power", It's none of your business what you think about me and will soon be releasing two more books this fall titled "Thinking Yourself Young", and "I Think Therefore It Is" He was president of a boutique real estate development company that he founded while still in college. He has since focused his attention on doing research and writing books for the public. Peter writes two articles per week for AOL;s Huffington Post - search under his name to get to his article archive. Cut and paste:
Peter started with old fashion German Lutheran drive and ambition, obtaining several degrees at the graduate and undergraduate levels of study. Peter in his second year began working for the University as a resident adviser which took care of tuition paying for room and board for a year and a half until he finished his first real estate deal. The profits not only funded the start up of his company but allowed him to continue study at the PHD level and allowed him to pay off all his student loans. He also wrote articles for the University newspaper pertaining to a mathematical model that values an asset over time that addresses the concept that a building has energy that can be manipulated using marketing and property management techniques that lead to higher NOI. He presented this model at Harvard University business school in Cambridge in the early 1990's in a seminar he gave titled "The four rates for return for real estate assets". His mathematical model was the the foundation of his Master thesis "The analytical framework of the development process".
He has served on the board of directors and helped grow a tiny 15 million dollar local bank from acquisition to crossing the 3 billion dollar in assets mark. While on the board he used techniques that he shares in his Book The Point of Power to address issues that led to incredible successes and exponential growth in the value of the stock.
He was nominated to a small local Illinois symphony board of Directors. He was elected the youngest president in the history of the symphony after only 6 mos. on the board. During his time as president he took the symphony from near bankruptcy to selling out concerts using visualization and other techniques described in his book "The point of power".
He received his Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Science degrees from the University of Illinois. He specialized in Architecture and landscape architecture, and minored in Music his first four years. He then went on to study in the Finance, MBA, and law schools while in attendance at the graduate level through his post grad PHD research which lasted nearly 10 years. He was a visiting professor lecturing on the development process and related topics. Peter taught Architecture 466 a Graduate level class titled "Problems and processes in housing design".
Since his doctoral research he has pursued study in the field of theology focusing on ancient texts and has done significant research in the related areas of quantum mechanics. He has partnered with several associates who do research in the area of quantum physics at Harvard University, University of Wis. and MIT to provide backdrop to his research and consult. Baksa took the truths of ancient texts that have suffered the test of time (2500 years) and cross referenced these truths with the work of contemporary quantum mechanics.
He looked to the research of Stephan Hawking, Richard Feynman, Carl Jung, Albert Einstein,Max Planck, and applied a similar template seeking truths that they all agreed upon sifting out anything that did not agree with both Quantum theory and Theology. From this final list of common denominators Baksa built the theoretical framework. This frame work points to a method by which humans interact with the universe to create their reality. It shows how humans mainfest their lives in the natural and attract matter. Recently he spent time in Beijing China, studying the daily rituals of Tibetan Monks. This work included 140 hours of interviews and literal translations that look behind meditative practices and their relationship to quantum physics and the way the brain works within this triad. These interviews included an in depth study under the direction of the Dali Lama that lasted nearly a month. This research will be found in his next book "Thinking yourself young" where he points to the rituals of Tibetan monks residing in the Himalayas that are said to have lived to be over 180 years of age. Baksa continues to track the family heritage of these monks to establish proof of their age since their birth predates any credible recordation. He is also mirroring their diet and measuring the effects using reoccurring blood tests to track the impact of what is mainly a vegetarian diet along with mediation or brain training exercise that goes back to the work of Lau Tzu 500BCE and Taoism.
He has also recently worked as a developer with several charities, including The Make a Wish Foundation, The Starlight Foundation, and Broward's Children Center successfully raising money and creating interest in these organizations through events that he created and successfully initiated. His last event garnered sufficient interest to raise enough funding to grant 5 children their wish via the Make a Wish foundation. The Illinois Preservation and Conservation Association awarded him the Community Commitment Heritage Award for his efforts to preserve Illinois architectural history through his company's historic preservation projects. Peter has volunteered as a reader for orphaned children via his alumni association membership. Peter has been involved with an Illinois homeless shelter as a volunteer food server and organizer.
