I have no words. This is so sad...I'm just so glad I got a chance to meet this wonderful man at the Paradigm Symposium last October. My heart goes out to his family and friends, particularly his lovely wife, Kathleen, who had such a short time with him.
From Micah Hanks: "God bless you my brother, my colleague, and my friend. I know the angels have received you into their loving arms today, and so many of us have you now in our minds and hearts. Thank you for all the insights you gave us into this mysterious world we share; you've been an inspiration in life, and now, you will remain forever at the pinnacle of wonder, insight, and the stuff of legends like those you helped us to discover through your intrepid research. Thank you, and may you carry on peacefully into the infinite, my brother."
Amen, Micah. Philip Coppens, may you rest in peace.
