Source Of The Dream - My Way To Sathya Sai Baba This book focuses on that influence as it has been exerted upon the author both subtly and directly for a long time, drawing him eventually to India and into direct contact with Sai Baba, transforming his experience and his life. (Publ. by Sun-Sky Publications, Bangalore 1994 & Samuel Weiser Inc. York Beach, 1998) (300 pages.) Republished in 2000 by Sai Towers Publications, Puttaparthi, AP. India and reprinted. A sequel to this book is being published in India in 2004 entitled 'The End of the Dream', due to the fact that the author came to learn indubitably of the involvement of Sai Baba in crimes and deceits on a very large scale, which have been assiduously covered up by almost everybody around him, including many political figures (including India's governments and Prime Ministers).

I was active in social science, philosophical, psychological/psychiatric and social-political debate in Norway - in journals and newspapers - since the mid-1960s. During the two decades when I worked at the University of Oslo, I held well over 2,000 two-hour lectures at various Institutes, mostly in philosophy - including for several years lectures on my textbook 'Communication and Understanding', on which I also set and censored examination each semester. I held gave some hundred plus lectures in sociology, both at the Institute of Sociology and the Institute of Psychology. I was guest lecturer for Ph.D. candidates in sociology at Umeå University in Sweden for one week in 1969.
In the 1980s and '90s I published diverse writings on spirituality in articles, journals and books in the UK , Norway, India etc. See bibliography
