Hello I'm Yesselman, I opened this Wikipedia account on November 22, 2005.

I am an eighty-four year old retired Structural Engineer who has studied the philosopy of Baruch Spinoza some sixty-odd years; time permitting.

I have explained my fascination with Spinoza in the

Preface to Spinozistic Ideas.
