Hello people for potential!

I can't stop. I do too much, but I can't help it. They labelled me the Renaissance Man, Zappa said we're all wearing uniforms, I have a wardrobe full. If there's a big issue, I start having ideas and modelling how to understand it, so it can be fixed. If there is a blank slate, I'll begin to transform it into art. I look at a wall, or a floor or foliage and see images; if I close my eyes I see thousands of people one by one, animals I can animate; I dream concepts.

You are the potential patrons that can provide the blank canvas, the open time, you can free me to create without insecurity. For your patronage I will deliver concepts and systems into the society and institutions where they can be expanded, and release my personal art and work on the new frontiers of music.

In recent years I have farmed and rescued pollinators; now I'm shifting to focus back to my passions - creating art, fiction; bringing new great music to the world and releasing all the locked up systems for people & business that I developed, for free, into the public domain.

It would be fabulous to see what new young minds could do with the models and systems that I built; things like The Energy Framework and Zetetics - let others take them forward! Imagine all that quiescent work let loose in new brains! I see them updated into new applications and 'apps', plus made free for all in the creative commons.

I've always needed to be active in both primary brain aspects (at school I was always top in art and mathematics), but painting, writing and pioneering music don't pay well (yet).
To make this all work, I need patrons: That's * You *

As a patron you'll get first release of all my digital output, special gifts of artwork, invites and more, but most importantly you'll be directly supporting me, and although Patreon isn't yet designed for multi-faceted campaigns, I'm setting up separate links so that you can support the one or two things you know me for, or the whole.

You always get to control how much you commit to and can stop/change it easily

Under the specific campaigns (per 'thing') you can support me for as little as $1: HERE I'm thanking you for trusting me to put your patronage to good use on whichever project I'm working on. Thank you. You'll get my patron-only emails and access to the patron-only feed, where we'll all talk about it together.

You're supporting me a lot here, this is really generous. Thank you! You'll get all of the above, plus you'll be in the "random surprise" group. I'll email you random surprises every once in a while, including ephemeral and experimental art and ideas that i don't want out in the public, including photos and poetry that aren't for the general public.

This is a lot of money to spend on an artist/philosopher, and you are really showing me some serious respect here. I'll try to make it worth it: You'll get all of the above, random surprises + extras etc..., plus first access to special rewards in my specific sub-campaigns (e.g. in artwork, opportunities to buy/bid before others). I'll also set up a closed group with you to discuss the outputs and get your insights, thoughts an opinions.  note: these discussions will be open to the wider patron base *later*, because everyone here is being generous.

(inner circle - limited to 14) - I think they call this an Angel Investor. That would be stunning, make a huge impact on my life and really enable me to be fully creative and free. You'll get all of the above...patron-feed, random surprises,first looks, of course i'll thank you personally, plus I'll send something special I've created to you

We'll spend weekends, discuss theories, art, or I'll paint you; we'll argue, sing, dance, get to know each other, all the things above and below; and here and now.
Goals
$27 of $50 per month
The first Zilo (Silos of Zaph's specialties) is the Music radio and podcast Zilo. + Belief! + Bringing to the wider world New Music that's as good as anything we each liked in our youth. Proving that there's great new music of all types - it's just not readily available.

BTW this will provide the first link!
