Whooshing sound, as sarcasm goes right over his head...

I think you are missing the strength of the point on the grammar issue. It is not just "some poor" grammar that needs correction. The entire content of what you posted looks like it was written in one language and then fed through google Translator.

In other words, it does not need correction. It needs a native speaker to entirely rewrite every single line in it... essentially re-writing the book.

That is no small task considering the content itself, aside from the grammar, is a series of meaningless, baseless, unsubstantiated, non-sequitur sentences without any reflection on reality or evidence and without any use I can find. It is simply poor stuff.

Sorry to be so harsh but self publishing is not cheap. Nor is translation which can be anything from 1 to 3 euro per line depending on the content and the effort required (in this case very high). Save your money unless you simply have too much of it that you need to burn it. However if that is so there are a host of secular charities I can recommend for you instead.

I don't know what you meant by that. You showed up hawking a bunch of writing you put together--writing that happens to be virtually unreadable--as though you were the ultimate authority on something or other. Did you expect everyone to cringe in awe at your mastery of whatever it is you were writing about?

The fact is, some of us know how to put a decent sentence together. You aren't a member of that club...which is fine, so long as you keep your material to yourself. But you shouldn't be surprised that the world extends beyond your computer screen.

True, I feel what you guys are saying completely. That's just how I get down though. I'll write those theories and concepts straight from my head in 1 minute and then just go to another concept and rarely go back and fix mistakes. It is called a freestyle.But I spend a lot of time thinking about the given concept in my head I just never write thoughts down to analyze them only to organize them. And as long as you guys are only criticizing my sentence structure and spelling then I'm fine with that for what else is an editor for. This is a philosophy section of a forum not an English section. Critique the content haha

I think if you actually read my post youll find I did both.

Lets just say if you spew this stuff out in the space of a minute... the quality of the content really does reflect the effort.

Your right it seems I definitely have to go back and add detail and clarity.
