About me

Max Egli

After living 30 years in my Eco-House in Dättlikon, I moved 2010 together with my wife into a flat near Winterthur, where I was born and raised in 1943. Already as a youngster, I was intrigued by the big  questions of human existence. My main themes are philosophy (mind-matter problem), nuclear- and gene-technology (because of the eternal time periods involved), as well as the climate change, caused by the outrageous growth of the economy and its insane air traffic The book is the very personal hystory of my complete failure as environment protector, written for remembrance and warning to my two children, five grandchildren and future generations. Because of Corona Covid 19, a danger of which I warned since 20 years, the book is of high revelance. Forced into solitude, I now become an angry activist and distribute any number of (for now only german) books free of charge to young people.

It's pure irony. Because the fight for human ideals failed, corona virus appears, terminates any growth of economy and reduces energy consumption ten times (unfortunately probably only temporarely).

Following J.W. Goethe:

Ein Virus, jene Kraft, die stets das Böse will, doch hier das Gute schafft.

A Virus, that force, that always wants evil , but here creates the good.
