On the 8th of January 2008, I received a letter from the American Biographical Institute inviting me to provide my biographical data so that my name can become one among the 1,000 names compiled in the work headed "Great Minds of the 21st Century". .........................................................................................
Putting myself on a stage where we have Albert Einstein, Professor Stephen Hawking, Mark Twain, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dalai Lama, Mahatma Ghandi, Mother Theresa, Maya Angelou, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and John F. Kennedy nearly looks like a sacrilege to me. These names are pronounced with reverence and respect, for they belong to the sacred beings of the last hundred years.
.........................................................................................

But how may I judge the criteria of the American Biographical Institute, an Institution that is certainly staffed by extremely competent individuals? I know very well that I am not qualified to judge them. All I should do is enshroud in humbleness and understand that my work is merely a tiny part of the great work of mankind. Neil Armstrong had understood this very well when he stepped onto the lunar surface and said "That´s one small step for (a) man; one giant leap for mankind"

In my home country, the only heroic and affectionate recognition I have ever received came from ANTENNA, a radio amateur magazine. In my home country, scientific magazines have always received me with indifference and disdain. As a result, one feels being considered insane when writing about subjects few people know. I should not complain, though; not even Jesus (at least one among the geniuses of the human species) was recognized in his native land.
.........................................................................................

Now, this is exactly what makes me write the public and explicit acknowledgement to the great American people. The college I attended had been donated by the American people to my beloved Brazil, as part of the USAID program. I studied from American books, I conducted experiments in laboratories equipped with American devices, and our computer, an IBM 1620, had been donated by the Ford Foundation. American teachers have come over here to train the first students and future masters. I studied in English and used the American Standards. I attended a training course at GM during which I distinguished myself and, for the first time, drew the attention of our brothers from the North. They wanted to take me to the GMI at any cost, the General Motors Institute in Detroit. Even so, I decided to stay in Brazil, knowing quite well that I would be lacking resources and that I would have to accept seclusion, difficulties and lack of comprehension. This is how my scientific life has been.

But the job is not finished. I shall stuff my ears with wax, as did Odysseus´ sailors in order not to give in to the songs of the sirens of vanity. I know that now there is no other way but to resist the songs of the sirens. I am fully aware of how important the issues of my studies are to mankind. I have to accept the recognition, not of myself, but of a new gate on human knowledge, a gate from where never-dreamed-of horizons are seen. I am sure that, within short time, these achievements will become known and receive deserved recognition by the scientific community.
Rarely a Nobel Prize has been so appropriate to prize knowledge that may redeem, as a matter of fact, the survival of mankind. Rarely has recognition been so vital, after so many decades of senselessness.

I do fully realize that not even the slightest bit should fall into the hands of those who do not love Freedom and Democracy. Economic and military power available through such knowledge is enormous. Please apologize for not having mentioned this before. I know that this knowledge may eventually be used for bad purposes. Well, that´s part of human nature.
.........................................................................................

I also wish to express my thanks to the Royal Society for having paid attention to me and for having published a sharp, biting article under my signature. .........................................................................................
On March 6, 2008, I received mail from the International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, England, requesting me to send my biographical details in order to be put forward in the publication “2000 Outstanding Intelllectuals of the 21st Century Awards Programme". Once again, I hereby express publicly my profound gratitude.

But there is more.
.........................................................................................

On March 27, 2008, I received word that I am invited to become a member of the IBC Board of Directors. As a Deputy Director General, one of my tasks will be to indicate people whose biographies demonstrate relevance for mankind and deserve international recognition. I conceive this as a heavy responsibility, not as a privilege. I have been conferred the right to write DDG after my name, and my name will be in all IBC publications as member of the board of directors representing the American continent, including Latin America. Among many other privileges, I will be entitles to use IBC letterhead stationary. Once again, besides expressing publicly my profound gratitude, I wish to assure all the institutions that have distinguished me with the privilege of offering me membership, that I do sincerely hope to honor them through my work and dedication.

Should this work not become known now, some day someone might understand my words. The ideas are all here, in the form of a code, however. It may take decades before someone understands what I have been writing. Unfortunately, I believe, mankind will not have so much time left. Albert Einstein said with genius that gravity causes space deformation. More than half a century went by before I said:
.........................................................................................

- Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the fourth dimension! And this can be understood only in Hyperspace!
