Recent Ancestors

65/100 Germanic
24/100 East Mediterranean, Caucasus
11/100 Slavic

I fondly cherish my ancestry from the following peoples within the last 200 years:

Germans of Westphalia
German Prussians
German Alsatians
Swedes
Croats
Bulgarians/Macedonians
Romanians
Serbs
Ukrainian Cossacks
Greek-Tzintzars

Just as we regard our parents and their care we ought to be aware that from generation to generation all of our ancestors parented the unbroken line that we currently end, and that their cumulative effort to make a better life for their children and consequently ourselves must drive us to never stop seeking the same for our own children. That is the one single source of honor and commitment that binds us for the common good. We should always picture ourselves as seen by our descendants and make sure we provide reasons for them to look upon us with the same dignity with which we look upon our forefathers.

Poetry

I have authored about 70 poems in the period between 1995 and 2002, and several more since 2002. Even though I have received some high aclaims, they still remain unpublished.

A Few Selected Poems

The poems are in Serbo-Croatian and can thus be read only by Serbo-Croatian speaking people. They can be accessed from the menu to the right.

I may add a couple more given a sufficient interest.

Hrišćanstvo

Usred noći puste na oltaru hrama
Dostojno i mirno stoji Hrista Raspeće
Svuda naokolo vlada gusta tama
Samo pokraj Njega da zavlada neće.

Noć je zimska, hladna, mraz se leden hvata
I van i unutra pramen njen se kreće,
Smrzava se vazduh tih usnulih sata
Samo oko Njega smrznuti se neće.

Sred studi i tame, sveg zaspalog sveta
Jedna samo svetlost tiha, mirna blista
Pruža se lagano sa Raspeća Hrista.

Nagoveštaj jutra svetu ona nosi
Ostrvo topline i sjaja sred zime
Svetlosti s Raspeća, Spasenje je ime.

Najveće blago

Sačuvao sam ružinu laticu
Koju su ljubile tvoje usne
I jednu traku
Koju su dirali tvoji prsti
Stavio sam ih zajedno
U tesnu kutiju
Da im ne bude lakše
Nego ljubavi koja se guši
Sama i neizmerna
U malom smrtnom telu
Onda sam jednog dana
Dok si sedela za mojim stolom
Video tvoju vlas
Koja je pala na njega
Dodirnuo sam te
Ali bilo je kasno
I mi smo krenuli
Kada sam se vratio
Našao sam tvoju vlas
Bila je usamljena
I bila je tužna
Podigao sam je i poljubio
A zatim
Sam je stavio u istu malu kutiju
I zaplakao umesto nje

oktobar 1996.

Poklon

Primi ovu pesmu kao buket ruža,
Ili bombonjeru, il bocu parfema,
Svejedno, jer ruka koja ti je pruža
Do da grli tebe druge sreće nema.

Primi ovu pesmu kao što se prima
Poklon što je moguć jedino iz srca
Koga plave radost, krv i strasna plima,
A sve samo zato što kraj tebe kuca.

Počuj ove reči koje kažu svašta
U kitnjastom redu, vatreno i tečno,
A zapravo usta, kao ispod plašta,
Samo kriju želju da te ljube večno.

I sve što u poklon nije moglo stati
Poznaćeš i steći u trenima svima,
Jer ni ja sam neću nikad tačno znati
Kolko još lepote u ljubavi ima...

3. septembar 1997.

Pustinja

Koliko sam puta prošao gradom
Kao pustinjom
U kojoj se glasovi ljudi gube
Pred istinom da te nema.
Nema mesta gde nije stigla
Moja nada da ću te sresti
Ni lika
U kome nisam očekivao tvoj lik
Ne idem tamo gde znam da jesi
Jer to je tvrđava koja te krije
Zidovi od kamena
Pod kojima bih večito ostao
Ne, već te tražim da te sretnem
Tumarajući ulicama
Koje su nalik na moju dušu
Jer ih pohodiš i ostavljaš puste
Da se u njima sretnem sa sobom.

Danas

Ti si senka srca, mada draga duši
Jedna bolna stvarnost daleka od snova,
Puko priviđenje što steže i guši,
A već korak dalje ti si žena nova.

Tvoj osmeh je moje ludo snoviđenje
I oči ti sjaje, tek u dnu mog oka,
Zvali mi to ljubav, pre je poniženje,
Ma koliko jaka, ma kako duboka.

Ti si moja mašta i do ovog trena
Sreća što se ruši od časa do časa,
Ili bolje reći iluzija njena
Nestvarna i lažna bez daha i glasa.

Nisi više ona što izgledaš da si
Nego prizor prepun laži i obmana
Pred kojim se konačno i moj privid gasi
I ostaješ bolna uspomena dana.

20. mart 1999.

Bez razloga

I tako dok si išla na drugu stranu,
Jer je postojao hiljadu i jedan razlog
Da kreneš u suprotnom smeru,
Pomislih kako su razlozi
Najgora ljudska kob.
Razloge svako smišlja
Kako god sam sebi želi.
Za svaku stvar
Postoji bar jedan koji je moguće naći
Toliko da kada nešto činiš sa razlogom
To je tako
Samo jer ne činiš ono što izvesno hoćeš.
Kada je čovek zaista siguran,
On ne mari da smišlja zašto
I zna da svakako jeste.

Nikada nećeš imati
Baš svaki mogući razlog
Samo na svojoj strani.
To znači da možeš da budeš
Jedino uprkos njima,
A ne radi nekog od njih.
Razlozi ne postoje.
Oni su naše laži
I male iluzije o sopstvenoj kontroli,
Kojima je sopstvena sreća
Uglavnom jedina cena.
Bez sumnje znam da postoji
Hiljadu i jedan razlog
Da odem i ne javim se više,
A ipak, idem za tobom

februar 2009.

Pre odlaska

Kada odeš bez mene
Pa pružiš ruku da dohvatiš me
Ja neću više biti tu.

Možda je takav bio plan?
Da sve što bude, kao da nije,
Kada odeš da ostane sve
Na svome mestu kao pre.
Da krišom, kradom volimo se
Kao što i do tad volesmo se?

Pa, tako i volim te!
Sada kao nekad, zauvek i pre,
Ali gde?

Kad odeš, ostane sve,
Samo nestane to mesto gde
I volimo se,
A nema tebe i nema me
I nema nas i nemamo se.

Having taken six standardized, psychometric intelligence tests (WISC-R at age 7, RAPM II and EPC-L (N-VCPE-R) at age 24, Cattell CFIT-3A at age 25, JCTI at age 30 and C-09 at age 31), the obtained results allowed me to become a member in the above listed IQ societies: (in order of decreasing minimum IQ required for membership)

Interests

I actively engage in pursuing all of the following: philosophy, astronomy, history (classical, medieval, modern), writing, genealogy, psychometrics, politics and social concepts, economy, theology, movies, photography.

I speak, read and write English, French, Russian and Serbo-Croatian, read and moderately speak and write Bulgarian (maternal language in direct matrilineal line), and read-only Italian, Spanish, Latin, Slovenian, Czech, Slovakian, Polish, Ukrainian and slightly Greek.

Favorites

I wouldn't be much mistaken to say that my all time favorite thing is actually Internet. This is reasonable since Internet holds or has the potential to hold in one way and format or another, most of the individual things that I count as favorites.

Movies

Web Development

My active work in web development included application of HTML, CSS, JS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL in building W3C standards compliant websites with and without dynamic content management. Some of the showcased websites may have been taken offline or otherwise changed over time.

Enquiry Details:


Testing for Giftedness

Scored above the total ceiling score of IQ 167+ sd16 (163+ sd15) on WISC-R at age 7 and one month, a result that by her own account the Psychologist who tested me had never seen in practice in 20+ years of her career by that time. However, I refused skipping any grades, even though I was told that theoretically I should skip more than four.

Overall, I have taken six professional standardized tests:

  • WISC-R by D.Wechsler, Ph.D.
  • RAPM-II by J.C.Raven, Ph.D.
  • CFIT-3A by R.Cattell, Ph.D.
  • EPC-L by X.Jouve, Ph.D.
  • JCTI by X.Jouve, Ph.D.
  • C-09 by X.Jouve, Ph.D.

scoring between IQ 163 sd16 and IQ 170 sd16, with an average of 165.6 sd16, as well as 173 sd16 on an experimental test. Since these are all at the very end level of meaningful statistical measurement they indicate a value above these numbers. One way of trying to get around this ceiling limitation is applying the method of variance of sums on these scores which leads to an indicated total rarity IQ of 171-174 sd16 - roughly among the highest 13 thousand people in 7 billion. However, this method is limited too as basically beyond the range of about 160-165 sd16 there is virtually no sufficiently substantial way (other than estimations through ratio scores and variance of sums) to establish what a person's true level of general cognitive ability is (see: Spearman's Law of Diminishing Returns).

In a 1993 book "Exceptionally Gifted Children", Miraca Gross reports cases of subjects scoring at or near the ceiling of the WISC-R (measuring rarity IQ) who, when tested with the higher ceiling Stanford-Binet L-M (measuring ratio IQ), achieved ratio scores of 198 and 200 which translate to regular deviation values of 172-174 sd16, same as the variance of sums of the combined deviation scores I achieved.
