My name is Graham Hale, I live in Hertfordshire, UK. I studied mechanical engineering at university and have worked in software engineering all my life .
Now semi-retired, I was a Business Systems Analyst and professional Business Facilitator with a special interest in Agile methods. I now work paid and voluntary for the care of the elderly particularly those with dementia.
I chose the name Lumos3 to underline my intention to be someone who brings some light into confused Wikipedia articles. The number 3 stands for the 3 worlds of reality according to my favourite philosopher Karl Popper, especially for world 3 which Wikipedia inhabits.
I found Wikipedia in September 2003 when helping my son with his homework on the French Revolution. Even then it was the best material available on the internet.
I have been regularly contributing ever since. Which means I have been editing Wikipedia for 17 years, 1 month and 30 days.
Please sign my Guestbook. Good editing!
I've made contributions in some areas on which I have a bit of knowledge of the local history and geography of places I've lived.
Also in the fields of:
- science, Henri Poincare, Michael Faraday
- engineering, Stirling engine, Reciprocating engine
- counter culture, New Age, John Lilly
- self exploration, Psychotherapy, Psychohistory
- health, Vitamin C, Orthomolecular medicine
- and computing, geography and history where I have lifelong interests.
A list of 450+ new pages I have created is here.

The following seems especially appropriate to the Wikipedia project, although written in 1912.
Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Gitanjali 35 (Song Offerings) , published 1912
1 Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
2 Where knowledge is free;
3 Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
4 Where words come out from the depth of truth;
5 Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
6 Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
7 Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action --
8 Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
