My name is Cornel
Slenters, born 1939, in Holland.
From my current perspective I can see
several phases in my professional life, which I will use
here in the outline.
I grew up in Holland
with caring parents.
Studied electronics engineering in Holland and later
systems engineering in the USA.
Working for Philips, IBM and Hewlett-Packard, I migrated
over the years from research & engineering to
management, then to training management. In the last
position at Hewlett-Packard as European training
director for the computer and instrument field forces.
As an independent management consultant I found time to
pursue ideas that had been lingering in my mind for many
years. The results and discoveries are described on my
Here is a brief listing:
The LOTA philosophy of science, from which emerged the:
- LOTA theory of consciousness, which includes
the solution of 'the hard problem'.
- LOTA theory of identity.
- LOTA theory of energy.
- LOTA theory of mind.
- LOTA theory of the Great Scaling Pattern.
- LOTA theory of the Universe Grand Design or
- Creative-R as the creative force behind all
Moreover, from the
development of the LOTA philosophy of science emerged
new standards for the design of scientific theory and in
particular new standards for philosophy of science.
Academic teaching years
I was fortunate to be able to apply these insights in
courses I delivered at institutes of higher learning in
the Lake of Geneva region. These courses included
subjects of motivation, leadership, creativity, stress
management, self development, achievement and emotional
intelligence. Many applications emerged during this
period from which the students benefited. When students
open up to a mental model of 'the bigger you and me', as
they did, magical things are happening, with benefits
for the rest of their lives.
I am now retired and I use the Internet to pass on as
much as I can from the accumulated materials.
We have a grandchild called, Alex.
He is still a little boy.
Hence, it is questionable if I am still around
physically by the time he could understand it.
In the meantime I welcome all parents, grandparents,
children, former children and grandchildren from around
the world to benefit from it.
Alex will know that there is something waiting for him
on the Internet when he is ready for it.
