What it really means to be truly gifted…

What it really means to be gifted...

People often think that I must be a very ‘gifted person’ due to all the things that I am able to do and have been able to accomplish. I think of myself as being gifted, but for a very different reason. Almost all of the things that I have discovered or created in life I never intentionally conceived of or planned, they were gifted to me by the universe. The word ‘Quinesence’ and it’s definition for example were gifts I received one day while chatting with friends in answering thier questions about how I made the discovery of the ‘Q-factors Universal Laws of Chaos and Order’, which happens to be yet another gift. During the conversation I suddenly found myself going off one of my segues and said “Quinesence the journey one takes in discovering, embracing and actualizing SELF was really how I discoverd the Q-factors” . From there we spent several hours with me recounting the stories of my journey. Thoughout the course of the discussion I received these additional gifts…

The ‘SELF’ is the ‘Soul Enabled Life Force’ that guides one in how to live life with greater purpose, meaning and integrity through serving the betterment of humanity.

The ‘SOUL’ is the “Source of Universal Love’.

“LOVE when shared openly creates ‘Limitless Opportunities Virtually Everywhere’ for us to unit in working together to peacefully transform the world around us into one where everyone can live LIFE with ‘Liberty, Independence, Freedom, and Equality’.

Since that day, the definition of Quinesence has futher evolved in to becoming…

‘Quinesence’ is the quitessential essence of being that manifests when one takes the journey discovering, embracing and actualizing ‘Self’.

The SELF is the ‘Soul Enabled Life Force’ that guides one in how to live life with greater purpose, meaning and integrity through serving the betterment of humanity.

The ‘SOUL’ is the ‘Source Of Universal Love’.

When LOVE is is freely shared it creates ‘Limitless Opportunities Virtually Everywhere’ for us to unite in working together, peacefully transforming the world around us into one where everyone can live ‘LIFE’ with ‘Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality’.

This is what being a ‘DIVA’ really means to me…

This is what being a 'DIVA' really means to me...

“A DIVA is a person who manifests their Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations in ways that serve the betterment of humanity”

These are the core principles, values and missions they life LIFE by…

“The live to serve, protect and respect our fundamental human right to live LIFE with “purpose, meaning and integrity”

“They openly share their knowledge so that it could nurture the healthy natural growth and development of everyones creative free thing and original thought processes”

“They unite people in working together, peacefully transforming the world around them into one where everyone could live LIFE with “Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality”

Gloria Steinem, John Lennon and Martin Luther King Jr. are three people that I have a great admiration and respect for because to they truly exemplify what it means to be a genuine ‘DIVA’.

The DIVA acronym came to me one day back in 2012. At that time was starting up a new business which was going to focus on helping small business owners operate their businesses in self sustainable, more socially responsible and accountable ways. The original name I was going to use was My Mobile CEO, as that is basically the type of services the company would be providing.. Fortunateky for me no on liked the name.  One morning while working on my new business venture at Starbucks a friend of mine showed up. This friend happens to be an attractive women whos presence exudes a natural aire of sofistication. She asked me if she could sit my friend Sara Troy and I to enjoy her coffee and join our conversation. During the conversation I started explaining the issues I was having with the company name I had chosen for my business when all of a sudden I blurted out that I was a DIVA. At that point they both burst out laughing because the word DIVA is last word in the dictionary you would ever use to describe me. I then went on to explain that we are all DIVAs because it is our “Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations”  that drives our sense for adveture and excitement in life. These same 4 factors are the key reason that people go into business for themselves. At that moment “The DIVA Mindset” popped into my head and became the company’s new name. Funny thing was that people had even bigger problems with this new name… Fortunately the univese intervened with other plans for me that rendered the need for me to ever resolve company name issue any further. the DIVA however has stuck with me and as as grew and developed greater clarity in my own life, the meaning of DIVA evolved into becoming everything that it now stands for.

I would like take this opportunity to invite and share with you my ‘DIVA-LIFE” story of the “Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations” that I am manifesting into a reality that will serve the betterment of humanity by clicking here

The amazing things that can be accomplished with $20, a broken back and a DREAM…

The amazing things that can be accomplished with $20, a broken back and a DREAM...

This story began back on April 1, 2011. The universe was once again preparing to deliver another round of incredible gifts to me. A few days later that time my business partner and I received the univerese’s first gift. The notification from the small group of investors we brought on board the previous September to help fund the development of an innovative “modular, adaptable and expandable induction electric motor ” technology that our company began working in late 2006 would be terminated on May 31, 2011. This impending change left my business partner Sara Troy and I facing a very uncertain future. The only viable solution we could come up with was to walk away from the business and go individually go back business for ourselves. These are the addition 3 gifts that came bundled with  universes gifts I received during this time frame…

“The gift to be able to walk away from everything that no longer served any meaning or purpose in my life knowing that I always put forth and did my very best.” 

“The gift of Liberty, Indepndence Freedom and Equality to once again go out on my own to discover, embrance and actualize new opportunities in life that would better serve the betterment humanity.”

“The gift of new found apprecition and gratitude for the totaly unexpected.

Which now brings us to August 28th 2011 when the universe a very special delivered my fifth gift that would push my new found appreciation and gratitude for the totally exextected beyond anything I could have ever imagined possible. On that particualr morning I had gone down to my local Starbucks and was working on the finacial plan for my new business venture which was going to be called “The DIVA Mindset”. That particular morning I decided to join some friends who had come in for their morning coffee. During our conversation I had unknowing experieced a serious siezure, that was until I went to stand up a coffe refil. The siezure was caused by neurological and neuromuscular damage that I sustained from multiple early childhood sporting accidents. This time around the siezure resulted in re-fracturing 4 of 11 previously broken vertebra and left me experiecing excrutiating body siezures and physical spasming that would last up to 4 hours at a time and occured 3-4 times every day!

By January 2012. Things had gotten so bad that I had to walk away from my new business venture. and by the end of 2012 I was almost totally bed ridden. To give you some idea of what I was physically going though every day, try to imagine what it would be like to give birth 4 to 5 times a day! Gift number 6 was the only thing that kept me going. The ability everyday without fail I be able to get up and go for a walk no matter what! Regardless of what time of the day or night it was, what the weather were, or the current physical condition absolutely nothing would stop me from going out for my daily walks. It was on these walks that I spent my time seeking clarity and meaning of a recurring dream I beagan having in 1995 and still have to this very day.

The DREAM consisted of only one thing. An image of the silhouette of a human head with a bright white blue glow set against a dark blue midnight sky ncackdrop. Inside the head silhouette was an active and moving model of carbon atom. Accross the bottom of the images was the following quote “Feeding the minds that will fuel the future” It iwas was just after returning from one of those walks that the universe delivered the unexpected and most needed gift number 7 to me on Easter weekend in 2013. I had just returned home from one of my walks and I was in so much pain and frustration I began lashing out and yelling “Fuck it! I don’t know how much more of the bullshit I can take”. With in 5 minutes of totally losing it, my seizures and spasming stopped and I have not had any more since! I was so blown away and excited by what had just happened, that I literally ran down to Starbucks to show Sara what just happened. Needless to say that when I got there and everyone who was there say me come bouncing through the door were bown away by what they saw. Many people their thought this was a miracle because it happened so fast. In reality all took was just an unwavering belief that I would overcome, a lot of hard work, a great sense of humor and my DREAM.

I received gift number 9 in January 2014 while out on a walk seeking greater clarity to the inner meaning of the DREAM, when suddenly the answer came to me and I knew what I had to do… A few minutes later the Name Living Fractals popped into my head. Afterwhich I immediately rushed home to see if the ‘ Living Fractals” domain name was available and as soon as I discovered it was, I took out my last $20 and bought it. For the next 2 years that DREAM began to manifest into something tangible with true purpose and meaning to me! A company designed and built from the ground up to serve the betterment of humanity.

Gift number 10: The biggest and best one yet. It was so big that it took serveral months to be fully delivered. Deliveries that began shortly after recieving gift number 9 and continued through out 2015. That gift was the discovery of the Q-factors Universal Laws of Chaos and Order along with that came the gift came a brand new LIFE. One that will enable me to begin manifesting my new ‘Dreams, Inpsirations, Visions and Aspirations’ in ways that will serve the benefit of humanity which will be accomplished though the planning, bulding, and the future services be provided by my new business venture the Living Fractals Company

Note: Since this article was orinally published the company has under gome some very radical transformations as well and was renamed and officially incorporated in November 2016 as The Living Orchard Corporation.

“The Little Engine that everybody said couldn’t, wouldn’t and shouldn’t…”

"The Little Engine that everybody said couldn't, wouldn't and shouldn't..."

except for Bill Macquis and Sara Troy

This is their story…

This story bagan back in the late 70’s whn Bill origianlly came up with a concept for an electric free-flow electric turbine motor for commercial shipping vessels. At that time the technologies required to make this a cost effective and practical reality simply did not exist. Then in 2005 Bill found himself presented with an opportunity for this technology to be actualized. It all began when his friend Sara Troy showed him a letter and began explaining the concept for a new business venture that her and another friend of hers were in the process of building. The letter that she presented along with her description of the purpose and meaning to how this business venture was going to serve the betterment of humanity resonated in harmony with his own personal journey in life. Her business venture involved importing electric bikes in North America. From the revenues generated from the sales of the bike a percentage was to be directed into supporting other peoples Humanitarian work efforts. At the end of the conversation Sara asked Bill to do something for her that would change the directs that both our lived would take. Bill and his eldest son were very active in the extreme mountain biking world. Sara asked Bill to take the sample of the electric bike she had home with for a few days and give her his honest evaluation of it.

This is where our story begins to take a very unexpected twist. Bill took the bike home and over the next few days he had everyone in his family test out the bike. Everyone found the bile to be a blast to ride. Acceleration provided by the electric motor got the adrenaline flowing, the ability to climb up steep hills effortlessly was a godsend, the practicality of being able to travel quickly over long distances with out ever breaking a sweat was refreshing. Most importantly the bike worked well as a typical bike under pedal power only. This sounds like the bike would provide the perfect solution for Sara’s business. So you are probably scratching you head wondering how this could possibly change the direction of Sara and Bill’s lives so profoundly. Now we will explain the other things that Bill and his family discovered:

  • The overall construction and component quality of the bike would lead to serious reliability issues over a short period of time– impeding warranty and servicing nightmare!
  • The bike was very poorly balanced which caused some pretty serious handling and safety issues- impending huge legal liability and safety issues.
  • Consumer cost to benefit ratio on the pricing model was way to low!!! Very hard to sell at the suggested retail price. Due largely in part to the massive duties and tariffs placed on imported fully assembled bikes.

Now Bill found himself in a very difficult situation of having to give Sara both the good and bad news about the bikes. Sara’s business concept was very sound and had high potential to succeed, the problem was that the product she was planning to sell would have ultimately crippled the business from ever achieving that full potential. The night before Bill and Sara were to meet up so he could deliver the good and bad news of his findings and still unsure of how he was going to tell Sara the overall impact his findings would have on her business, he found himself helping his son turn up his bike for the next days ride. Bill was working on the disk barking system on the bike while his son was rebuilding the suspension system. As Bill was dissembling the and bleeding the disk brake lines am image popped into his head… Image of a really cool electric motor based on research work Bill had done back in university, that could be built around the disk braking system on the bike. With in minutes of this Bill’s mind began working on the prototype of how this new electric motor would work. By the next morning Bill knew exactly how to break the news to Sara.

The next Day Bill met up with Sara armed with his new innovative bike motor concept along with all the other news he had to update her with. He started off the meeting by sharing all the good news, then proceeded to give her all the bad news. At this point Sara was clearly shaken up by his findings. Then Bill took out a piece of paper and began sketching out and explaining this new electric motor concept he came up with the previous evening. How this new electric motor technology could potentially revolutionize how all electric motors are designed and manufactured in the future. Upon hearing Bill’s description of this motor, Sara had an epiphany that no matter what this motor had to built.

Over the next year several other transformations happened in Bill and Sara’s lives. Sara’s original business partner went off to pursue other interests. Bill and Sara became closer friends and Bill continued to build and test literally thousands of prototypes of his motor until he had a design that he knew would work the the very first time they actually build a physical prototype. During this time Bill and Sara approached some of the leading electric motor manufacturing companies in the world to find a controller that could be used to power and operate the prototype. The every single one of them upon hearing Bill describe how his motor worked they all said that’s impossible!!! That it didn’t matter what motor controller you choose the motor will never work!! These are the things that Bill lives to hear from people- it was drives him to achieve the inedible things that he is able accomplish in life.

Now totally in belief that his motor would work, all he had to do is find a way to power and control it… Coming from the pro and consumer audio industry he figured he could just use a car amplifier to provide the variable frequency power required, plus car amplifiers are battery powered so this would also worked nicely for the intend use of the motor on an electric bicycle. Now all he had to do was find something to use to control the motor. What he needed was a device that could create multiple channels a alternating variable frequency and phase alternating current electricity. Solution found, an Apple iPod could do everything Bill needed. All Bill would have to do is dig out his Ableton Live audio software and and his midi keyboard and record a whole bunch of music loops, then down load those into the iPod and done. Complete drive system for the motor done. All we needed was a car amp, batteries to power the car amp and Apple iPod and a few hours of time to record all the audio loops.

By this point Bill and Sara had been working on the project for a little over a year. It was now November 2006 and Bill had everything fully designed and ready to begin building the first physical prototype of the motor. So off they went shopping to get the car amp, batteries, and iPod, a front wheel mountain bike disk brake hub, and a bunch of other material and supplies needed to build the motor. They then took Bill’s CAD drawings down to a local water jet machine shop to get all the custom components fabricated. Over the Christmas break Bill assembled the motor ready for it’s inarguable test. January 1, 2007 was D-day… Bill finished off some minor adjustments and prepared to power up the motor for it inaugural test. There was just one thing that Bill wanted to test out before calling Sara in to witness the motor working. There were only 2 expected outcomes that Bill still had not fully resolved in his head. Neither of which had anything to do with whether the motor worked or not, it was a matter of figuring out which way the drive coils needed to be mounted in order to deliver the best performance. Bill chose to configure the motor to test the one he felt would deliver the worst performance. Low and behold the motor worked when powered up. Now all he had to do is reconfigure the coils the other more optimal way and test again…. After making the changes he called for Sara to join him in the dining room to witness the motor inaugural run. Not only did it work, I sat at the dining room table playing different tone loops from the iPod to vary the power and direction the motor was spinning in and by varying iPod volume control I could adjust the motors speed. At that very moment it time and forevermore we transformed the seemly impossible into a infinite number of yet to be discovered possibilities.

Here’s a video showing the working prototype of a really innovative electric motor technology that everyone said would never work…

“Often it is the very person that we could never have imagined of that accomplish the things no one else ever imagined possible”
