BRAINWAVES - The Alternatives

Welcome to BRAINWAVES - The Alternatives

BRAINWAVES is a one man think tank inaugurated by Martin Mosse in 1998. Its primary aim is to foster the progressively disappearing art of Thinking, and to promote alternative approaches to contemporary issues.

MARTIN MOSSE was born in the 1950s and holds degrees in classics (M.A., Oxon), Mathematics (B.Sc., Open), and New Testament history (Ph.D., Wales). Having made his career in operational research, he has written three books – on New Testament history, mathematics, and Christian life and practice - as described in Section III, as well as assorted BRAINWAVES reports in fields as diverse as economics, politics, New Testament history, theology, philosophy and mathematical education, to be found in Section II.

He is married to Barbara, who is a retired priest and published author of The Treasures of Darkness and other books. Their home is completed by Rufus, a sleek black Labrador who joined them in July 2016.

His other interests include photography, map postcards, family history, the poetry of Robert Browning, Freecycle and knots. Martin has a page in where several of his papers may also be found.
