Hey, claims about being handy do not mean that your "philosophy" should be seriousely considered. I can (and did many times) fix lasers, oscilloscopes, VCRs, computer monitors and other PC hardware, fix a car (down to replacing worn pistons in the engine or broken gears in transmission), fix a refrigerator, washer, etc. not to say about more simple electical/mechanical jobs. But so what? This does not mean that I have a right to pollute environment with bulky writings about my "feelings" of how Universe work - there is not much relationship between these skills and Universe.

Moreover, I can come up with reasonable mathematical model of an electron, or of an inertia, or of the uncertainty principle - but again so what? Because it is not exactly my expertize, I would never claim that "here is the truth" or even try to bother somebody to read my "mathematical exersises". Let alone nonmathematical speculations.

Disagree? Fine. Instead of trying to keep busy Nobel commetee and the rest of academics reading your manual, why don't you unlock your manuscript from "secure place" and just mail it to experts - serious cosmology (or physics) journal? They sure find a bunch of guys who are familiar a little bit more than us with the Universe working, and they will really "appreciate" your "enlightment". They will help you to reach in a rush interested specialists via published article (before someone stole your precious ideas, or before Men in Black shown up at your door - as you concern deeply about in preamble to your manuscript). Then you place in history of cosmology will be secured, and Nobel commetee will stay in line.

But I would strongly suggest to do some arithmetic and put numbers in your "philosophy" if you expect to have any attention to it from educated world. Science is about numbers.

By the way, Heisenberg wrote a lot of math to support his findings.
