This website is an entrance into how one person has come to view and define existence. Beyond the website is an ebook, "Notes from an Existence" which goes into more detail. The book has been published as an ebook because it will constantly be updated. Usually about twice per year but that varies with time available and conditions.

NG Rippel is a pen name based upon a rather eccentric great uncle, who was named George Ripple. Though genetics and environment, George and I share many traits, I am, however Not George.

nothing has guaranteed
that humans shall succeed
past ego’s wants and needs 
(ego indeed can be the name of our beast)

overfeeding your ego (self-interests)
starves your soul (humanity/existence’s interests) 
(balance feeding this pair)


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.

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

we are all plugged into the Universe; most simply choose 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

has reason ever really been in fashion?
