What the book is about:

Septemics, A Book on the Analysis, Prediction & Management of Human Affairs, is a must-read for personal improvement

What the book is about:

In SEPTEMICS, Marshall explores how better understanding human conduct can make you a more successful person, including:

  • -How understanding specific areas of human activity, such as motivation, identity, thought, ability and choice, can improve your life
  • -How using Septemics can improve your relationships, communications and work
  • -How Septemics can have a positive impact on nearly every aspect of human affairs
  • -The 7 different levels of each scale, and how to advance to the next level
  • -How this book can aid parents, counselors, spouses, employers, teachers and pastors

Inspiration for the book:

Because individuals, as well as groups, behave in predictable patterns (which are specified in this book), SEPTEMICS is able to provide a new way of looking at human interactions, and can help readers achieve their goals faster and easier. The author has laid it out in 35 different scales to help readers understand it in a structured way.

Author advice:

While it's tempting to jump to a specific scale (there are 35 scales covering different situations), it's best to read it from the first page to the last. This is because most situations in life are intertwined. For example, a person may start an entrepreneurial venture but different people may have different reasons for doing so. Some may do it for recognition, or acceptance, while others may do it for financial benefit. By identifying and understanding your own motivation, those around you, and the communication in between, this could potentially improve your communication, relations and work all at the same time.

About the author:

Jim Marshall, B.S., is a polymathic scholar whose areas of expertise include psychology, philosophy, theology, parapsychology, science, engineering, mathematics, law, literature, history, metaphysics, military science, political science, physical culture and music.

Sample chapters are available at the author's website To purchase the book, you can choose between Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one.
