Profile Information

To tell you the truth I represent two person, one real and one pseudonymous. The real one was born in the middle of the last century in one country called Bulgaria (which now turned to be European poorest area), in an ancestrally intellectual family. As a result of this he has received two and a half tertiary educations in the exact sciences and in three different countries, and at the moment knows three and a half foreign languages. In view of this he has worked in various scientific institutes as research assistant in the end, and because of my higher education I have ... remained unemployed from the beginning of our democracy and for more than a quarter of a century until now I am at last pensioner with — you will never imagine this — a pension of a bit less than ... three bus tickets daily for all expenses! Did you get it?

So, and by this circumstances it is not surprising that I have become democratic dissident, or intelligent laic, or research non-assistant, or (the biggest in the world) demo-critical realist, or the like. Yet because of my scientific education, natural inclination to moderate judgements, as well as my then middle age, I have been (and am) sophisticated enough for to deny nothing totally (how the ordinary people usually do) and have begun to ponder about the pluses of the minuses and vice versa, about the democracy and life in general, finding an interesting for me occupation. In this way I have naturally come to expressing myself in publicistic materials, popular-scientific researches, all kinds of untraditional thoughts, etymological guesses and parallels between (in principle) all languages, and also finding consolation and pleasure in writing of (usually) funny (but also philosophical and other) verses with sound “nursery” rhymes, and this in three languages (Bulgarian, Russian, and English), because otherwise I got often bored. And this was my second “face”, the creative or literary, though chiefly as non-fiction writer (although I have some SF stories and poetry, as said). I have published things on several Russian sites, also in three languages, but as far as in 2017 I finished the translation of all my (translatable, i.e. prosaic) things in English I have decided to begin to ... conquer the Western world, so to say. And, come to think about, why not?

As far as on this site it is not possible to use Cyrillic and Greek alphabets I will have to reduce my works at least 4 times, because I have many etymological works which require several alphabets, or even more times, because you are interested chiefly in fiction stories and poetry, where I have practically no fiction stories (with the exception of a book with SF stories, yet these things are chiefly utopian and educative, not adventurous), and the most of my poetry (by a bit more than 10,000 lines) is in Russian and Bulgarian. Still, when I subtracts something from, say, 50 books, there always remains something, right? So that I can begin with some poetry in English, not much but something, in order to see my stile. Then I can publish also something poetical in Russian with one Latin transliteration of mine (it is funny way but it is possible, only that will have to mark it as English). Then maybe I will publish in English a pair of other books, I have not yet decided. Below I give some list of my works in chronological order, just for information, which can be found on several sites, if you want to search. So here follows the list.

1.“ The communism as religion (popular study)”, which is such apologetics of communism that the (still remained) communists don’t accept it, with a but philosophical ... SF, a new religion, and one poetical multi-lingual Appendix. 2. “Curious Manifestos”, a dozen (in the end even a devil one) of Manifestos of invented political parties, which are all a kind of critique of democracy, they propose different, partly scientifically proved, partly funny, models of democracy which are all better than the existing models; there are two Appendices to the book. 3. “Ten cynical essays”, what is said, but have you met such books somewhere? I haven’t and because of this I have written this book! And this is a cynicism in my understanding, what means usually impartial realism. There is a peculiar appendix, the Constitution of Cynicland. 4. A pretty big collection of political and other papers called in English “Now, Look Here”, with roughly four sections, namely: for journals, for newspapers, feuilletons, and others. These things are going to the hundred, and would have long ago exceeded it if I have not begun to write big materials (about 20 pages or more). This is impartial political science, and the things are actual more than 20 years later (if the situation has not changed drastically). Practically nothing is trivial, everywhere are original ideas. It is split in 3 volumes, where I intent to add something only to the last, but I surely will add something (say, my latest idea is to write an Open Letter to the ... God Almighty, showing my ... commiserations for his dull existence, etc.). 5. A collection of 5 (for the moment) Social Essays, namely: “Democratic Values” (again a critique of democracy, you can bet about), “Search For The Woman (Cherchez la Femme)” (the topic is obvious), “Social Evils” (with surely untypical approach, this isn’t a sermon), “Bulgarian Survival” (a philosophical essay about the proper way to live, especially in poor countries, based on personal experience of the author as real person), and “Our Inability To Destroy” (an entirely new approach to our common sufferings and misfortunes). In addition to this I plan for a long time to write a paper about Bulgarian ... barbarity, with proving of this statement, the contras for this, as well also the pros; and maybe some other interesting theme that I will discover. All these essays are accompanied by a funny verse in the end. 6. A folder (which may be made to a book via simple collection of the papers, although they are pretty different) named PIR, what has to mean “Propositions, Ideas, Realizations”, but it is still opened for I may add new, chiefly etymological ideas and propositions, like ... new languages, or rather dialects of existing such); or there will be a second volume for you. 7. A small folder named initially “For all CIS-people”, which I have shortly adapted for other nations and it is called now “Dear reader, it's for you \Arab, Chinese, or Hindu! ”, where I propagate one exceedingly important idea about new (yet existing) world language, and this, surely well motivated. 8. One folder with “Personal Things”, which differ a bit in the three languages that I use, but is also interesting to be read, this isn’t a biography or similar things, and it is funny in places. 9. One enormously big book which is about everything, yet starting from the ... words of different languages, this isn’t just etymology, this is much more, this is the way of thinking of the people, a psychology of the people from all nations. And it’s name and form are also like nothing else, it is called “Urrh, cum commentis (impressions on etymological canvas)”. 10. My latest book is named “Letters To The Posterity”, what are letters but this is only formally, it is also about everything, in some places from etymological point of view, in others from the starting point of my reason, in some other places there are also verses in it, acrostics, so that it has to be pretty interesting for reading, but, alas, by thoughtful persons only! 11. Then there are several books with poetry, in English till the moment maybe not more than a thousand of lines, but in Russian and Bulgarian they are by about 10 thousands or more. And they are usually in such rough sections: philosophical, sexy, for children, funny, others, unless there are another more qualifying headings. 12. In addition to this it has to appear one big multi-lingual dictionary in Russian, which I have only in Bulgarian, it has been published nowhere, but I have used it in writhing of my “Urrh” as well of the “Letters”, so that it will not be entirely lost with my untimely (as usual) demise. It is in form of a data base, with words and explanations, divided in several types, and the key words there are about 11,000, from practically all Indo-European languages. 13. Other my future works will be my for long time promised (to myself) translations in German of my first 3 “whales”. More than this I don’t think to translate in German, they can as well read me in English, if they want (or, then, to begin to study ... Bulgarian). To translation in other existing languages I don’t think to come, unless just “The communism” in Italian (for their language is so precious, that I have to make a try in it, too). 14 Then I think to invent a pair of new dialects of existing languages, which will be called Myrskanto languages, and first has to be the M. English, and then, maybe, M. Deutsch; M. Russian is not necessary to invent, there exists the Bulgarian. 15. And if I will live long enough, i.e. more then 70-75, I am ready to begin to write SF novels, what till now I have not succeeded to do. This is because I have my minuses, I can’t invent improbable or incredible, illogical things, but maybe nearing my senile years I will be able to do this, who knows? I have to try in the end, because just to consume is not satisfying for me, no sirs. Some probable titles are: “The travel of Samuel Gulliver in 23rd century”, “Samuel Gulliver in Pirlipland”, “The intelligent ants”, and maybe something else. I have planned to live to 83 or 86, so that I may as well come to the dilemma how to fill my time then.

Maybe it is enough for the beginning. To add also that I can probably do some translations (from Bulgarian, Russian, English, German, Italian and only to Bulgarian, Russian, English) or write verses by ordering for somebody of you (if we can find way to send me the money).

Ah, and about my pseudonym, Myrski comes from Slavonic ‘mir’ what in Russian means both, a peace and the world, so that I am a peaceful writer for the whole world, I am a kind of ... appearance of Christ before the world. And I am, really, writing for the people, or, then, for my pleasure (per il mio diletto, in Italian), what means that I usually write things that I alone have wanted to find (like, say, some cynical essays) but have not succeeded and because of this have done it alone. This is a good approach, I thing, try it if you can. And I advise you also to read me for the simple reason that all my ideas and propositions are peaceful, and if the humanity will not accept some similar approach, than the alternative is to kill us mutually, what we have leaned to do perfectly, i.e. the difference between my propositions and the common or vulgar approach is only in the social price.

OK, and now some words to my possible readers. Dear guys and girls, if you don’t like the very process of thinking just run as far away from me as possible! I am not for everybody, I am for the chosen. There have to be about 5 percents such people who like to think, not to have only actions and thrillers. But 5 % from 7 billion people amounts to 300 millions people, yeah, where I will be perfectly glad with a pair of millions of readers (instead of my tens to hundred of thousands). And I simply don’t want to get rich, I have nobody to whom to leave my money, so that I will offer everything as cheap as possible, what till the 2017 means for free.

And now all the best from your M_aybe I am not as clever as I think, Y_et I like to question everything and ponder. R_eally, in this way the emotions sink, S_till, this gives me pleasure and I often wonder, K_nowing how well are organized the things. I_n the end my facts like polished diamonds are.
