New blog series from Apiros athlete and former tennis pro, Xander Centenari. Xander is a prime example for what it means to dedicate one's life to their craft. This series will follow his path as he makes the transition every athlete must make from sport to "real life." I'm excited to see how he morphs his passion for tennis into whatever lies ahead in this next chapter of his life.

This is Xander reading his blog post that can be found at

This podcast is different. I've had some requests for me to read an article I wrote recently in podcast format. The subject of the podcast is Philosophology, a term I will define within the article. 

The first two paragraphs:

We are being led by the blind and uninformed. There is a virus infecting our culture and growing to epidemic levels. Our social patterns of value have tipped the scales towards ignorance. This plague is Philosophology, and it has the world of sports in a death grip. 

Robert Pirsig birthed the term Philosophology in his book, Lila. He writes, “Philosophology is to philosophy as musicology is to music, or as art history and art appreciation are to art, or as literary criticism is to creative writing. It’s a derivative, secondary field, a sometimes parasitic growth that likes to think it controls its host by analyzing and intellectualizing its host’s behavior.” Philosophology is rapacious in academic, medical, coaching, and training institutions because it is easy to teach. It has spread so much further than when Pirsig wrote about it in 1991.

Often times the simple things are overlooked for a variety of different reasons. Often times these simple things are the answers. Dr. Ted is truly a pioneer in the field of Health Optimization. 

Dr. Ted graduated from college at the age of 18 and earned his Doctor of Medicine degree at the age of 22 from the University of the Philippines. At 25, he was a fellow of interventional neuroradiology, a research professor of pharmacology, and a clinical professor of neurology. At 28, he became a professor of medical informatics and of neurointerventional radiology in Washington, DC. At 45, he retrained in Interventional Endocrinology (Anti-Aging Medicine) and in Nutritional Medicine, and became double board-certified in both specialties. Dr. Ted is published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, holds US patents, and delivers lectures. He currently has a tri-continental practice in Anti-Aging Medicine and in Nutritional Medicine.

"Truth is reflected in situational awareness and being present in the moment."
Mike & I initially met a few years ago through a mutual friend at a lecture I gave to a club volleyball team out in Virginia. Later we coincidentally met again at a continuing education course. Since then we have talked sporadically with extreme depth and every time I leave with many more questions to ask, a different understanding of the body and mind, as well as a big smile on my face. Every conversation has been extremely enjoyable and this one is no different.
