The pages on this website are an entrance into how one person has come to view and define existence. Beyond the website is a book, "Notes from an Existence" which goes into more detail. 

NG Rippel has been written under a pen name based upon my rather eccentric great uncle, who had a penchant for storytelling and writing down notes in a notepad. Through genetics and environment, George and I share the note taking trait. I am, however, "not George".


within this existence, establishing purpose is the purpose


Always attempting to make a little sense of that which was going on around me than following any scholarly or career script. More interested in observation and analysis than getting ahead. A lifestyle never quite bordering on economic disaster. Not focused on career advancement. Definitely not trend-setting. Just moving on from youth to retirement. Watching and learning. A little hard to pin down and never really in focus. Not quite average. Certainly not exceptional. Somehow moving forward. One small change at a time. 

​how beings adapt to the universe defines them

This site is basically about the development of my personal philosophy of continuation. We believe that everyone should develop their own philosophy. That philosophy may include religion, ideology or concepts, all of which should be related to creation of a better existence.

the universe is our home
making the best of it, is our challenge

all knowledge is transitory
the universe will forever change
being requires change
change is existence

we are all plugged into the Universe; most choose to try to disconnect themselves

that which benefits humanity and human continuation is beneficial

that which harms humanity and human continuation is detrimental 

Every entity in this universe is unique. Each in a different location. All constructed from different particles and energy. Each in a different state of evolution. Does our inclination to create generalized equations overlook the overriding diversity within reality?

modern humans, much as their ancestors, seem to prefer mystery and fantasy to reason

an open mind should be willing to constantly verify what it has absorbed

dare to reason differently

has reason ever really been in fashion?

continuation drives our universe
continuation is not a standalone activity
continuation is the purpose
within continuation lies meaning

all is a product of evolution
change is ubiquitous
better adaptation leads to a better existence
humans must define their own meaning and purpose

move beyond needing
methods of self-deceiving
embrace your being


how we interpret and feel about the processes going on within our existence defines our being
