This week we continue on with the first chapter of my “Remnants of Eden: Evolution, Deep-Time, & the Antediluvian World.” God bless, and stay with me as the story unfolds with the next post…
Looking back with clarity, I can now see how naïve I was in many of my executive decisions and in the personal and professional contacts I made. Above all though, the one decision that I feel hindered development most was my absolute insistence to maintain secrecy about the company’s core objectives. From the beginning, I maintained that we keep our efforts very quiet, even for a time suggesting that potential investors sign confidentiality agreements. My hope of course was to keep our operations outside of public knowledge, avoiding potential injunctions against our work until such time we could rally support, ultimately surprising the world with our achievement at just the right moment, maximizing publicity and profits. Such a position inherently limited who we could approach and how we could go about doing so. It was, as it turned out, a critical misstep.
Over the following months, we met regularly at Carl’s office or some other arranged venue, discussing matters that, at the time, seemed pertinent to our success, with numerous revisions of the company structure and venture capital needs. Gradually we began to reach out to others, prospective partners, consultants, and investors.
On March 30th, Carl and I met with a representative of an investment banking and strategic consulting firm. I was extremely excited that day, the company, our goals, everything, it all felt so real that day, so very close to achievement.
As with other prospective investors, the representative seemed to love the idea, being very vocal about the financial prospects and the commercial opportunities at hand. An unavoidable shadow of uncertainty became obvious though as he started asking concerning questions. He agreed that the prospects were amazing and that his organization may would be interested in assisting us, but that ultimately they would need more assurance that the technologies were viable than I could then provide. He said we needed a researcher who would specifically support our goals.
Knowing then that we immediately needed someone with credentials in a field relevant to our work, I set out to find us a scientist. My first thought was to seek only a consultation, a confirmation of sorts from someone of note that our goals were feasible. With this in mind, on April 8th, I began reaching out such individuals.
