The story of the cosmos, Sun and Earth: the evolution of mankind expanding across the continents, the tools that aided us, the cultural networks that brought us together, the spirituality that answered what we didn’t understand. Along the way we began thinking that technology could solve all our problems; our nature connection became a thing of the past. We began a struggle against nature as brutal as the wars we perpetrated amongst ourselves, a war taking place in the air and water, with the degradation of the land, the annihilation of ecosystems and biodiversity, concluding with the consumption of Earth itself. Climate stability is collateral damage as human population continues to explode. Our children’s children are counting on us to act now, reducing our numbers, changing our wasteful behavior, being selective about what we consume and how much we waste.

Joseph Stadtmiller is an engineer, educator and writer who has spent much of his career developing the most relevant and simple designs of electronic products, ranging from industrial, residential heating and air conditioning controls to medical electronics. After 25 years in industry he made a career change from managing engineering, R&D and marketing groups to pass on his experience to young aspiring engineers and technicians as a professor at a local community college and by writing textbooks. In the year 2000, he published his first and most successful book titled Electronics: Project Management and Design; a textbook designed to meet the needs of electronic engineering students taking senior capstone courses. Applied Electronic Design would follow two years later followed by a novel entitled American Bases in 2008, a story about a Korean War veteran returning from the War to become an American Legion baseball coach. At that point he set out on an eight year journey, pursuing some writing ideas about nature, technology, evolution and ecology he began developing years ago. The principles of relevance, respect and simplicity had developed individually and came together over time to form the principles for how he had managed his life; but more importantly he realized they were sadly missing in today’s society. “The Nature of Man, Life and Humanity” is the culmination of that effort. It’s the amazing story about the history of man and nature, how mankind has reached this point in time, and the changes we all must make to be able to continue on.
