A Fighter Pilot Looks At the World Upside Down by Dick Jonas

By Dick Jonas

Fighter pilots see the area in a different way from other folks. This sequence of books is a philosophical memoir of the way I feel humanity, society, and the universe I reside in.
i started those writings while i used to be 33 years outdated. For a number of many years it by no means happened to me that i'd are looking to submit them.
within the sundown of my years — i'm three-score and twelve, now — it all started to sunrise on me that it might be very important, notwithstanding i am not certain to whom, for my progeny to grasp how I sensed the universe within which I dwelt.
while that cognizance started to wake up, i used to be at the start regretful that I had now not undertaken the undertaking a lot past in existence. considerate mirrored image means that possibly i did not have a lot to claim up until eventually then.
i've got collaborated without one during this project.
Nor will I, for the total concept is to depart in the back of for posterity my very own specific philosophical cogitations.
it is going to be transparent from the textual content that even though there was no collaboration, there has been and is a brilliant deal of impact from an outstanding many of us and philosophies at the method my brain perceived things:
• My Christian upbringing
• My mom and dad, siblings, and different family members members
• the folk of the group the place I grew up
• the universities the place i used to be officially educated
• What I realized in these schools
• What I realized within the area of life
• Friends
• specialist institutions in faith, the army, the sphere of schooling, and the leisure world
• Philosophers, either old and sleek, who communicated with me via Gutenberg's exceptional invention.
at the start, I mentioned this undertaking as "Ecclesiastes." i believe that selection can have been encouraged through how the biblical booklet is titled: Ecclesiastes, or the Preacher.
As I learn in the course of the books, occasionally apparently i'm Ecclesiastes, and infrequently it reads like he's a chum with whom I correspond. i don't believe both feel is of any nice definitive significance; it's not relevant a lot both way.
it really is my nice desire that my teenagers and grandchildren, and theirs, and theirs, and on past, will check out my soul because it is mirrored in those pages. The progeny of any of my contemporaries also are welcome to inquire.
Please be urged, those books are usually not written in English. they're written in American redneck fighter pilot. They learn, in particular after concerning the first twenty years, like they'd sound if you happen to and that i have been having a talk — well mannered, informal, or perhaps heated now and again. might be over a cup of cheer.
therefore, language technicalities occasionally take somewhat a beating. a few examples:
• ain't — for am/is/are not
• ever — for every
• do not — for doesn't
• were not — for wasn't; and the converse
• they — for there
• anyhoo — for anyhow
• 'at — for that
• thunk — for suggestion (past annoying of think)
• son of a complain — numerous adaptations: sunzabitches, sumbitch, et al
• . . . the spaced ellipsis — a favourite machine for making print sound like conversation
• — the em sprint — one other gadget for related purpose
• widespread omission of a vital article or own pronoun first and foremost of a sentence
• occasional omission of the ultimate 'g' and it truly is substitute with an apostrophe on gerunds and current participles
• using all higher case letters in a few phrases and words; it really is my approach of shouting in print. There are a few exceptions. within the past years, I used all higher case for a few everlasting ideas: LOVE, fact, and sometimes guy signifying all humankind.
• italics are used for one in all reasons: to supply an emphasis in print which might be communicated with vocal inflection in a talk; or to set aside titles of creative or literary works
• the entries starting within the mid 80s, begin to mirror a growing number of many of the cynicism and impatience one acquires with age. Profanity, innuendo, and different foul language start to look. Be fore-warned: There are a few components within the books no longer applicable for kids nor well mannered company.
