My name is Jairo Alves, I was born in Santos/SP in 1956. I always worked in electronic data processing and telecommunications. I spent nearly 36 years working in the biggest Brazilian telecommunications companies.

I've always been very observant, curious and questioner. Very early, I realized that everything in nature was logical and interdependent. Later, I have learned that almost everything could be explained by science and translated into numbers. However, I felt extremely disappointed when I tried to find out what happens after death. All information I had got did not match the logic of nature.

My interest in what happens after death was so great that I even decided to get my answers. I read virtually everything with some connection to this subject. I discovered many logical things, but they did not integrate, something was missing. Then, a book of Hegelian philosophy of Brazilian teacher Djacir Menezes led me to a more pragmatic view of nature. From that moment, I decided to pay more attention to everything related to this viewpoint.

In 1975 while conducting a training of telegraph for work in the network of coastal stations I thought: "The secret to the materialization of intelligible forms is here." However, I found nothing. Later, in 1982, I developed a computer program to automate our duty roster. It was a great surprise when I realized that this program was I needed to explain how nature works.

I was convinced by the General Theory of Systems of Karl Ludwig Von Bertalanffy that nature could only be understood when studied as an immense system in which everything is perfectly integrated. To improve my view of systems, I post-graduated myself in systems analysis and migrated to the data processing area. Later, I migrated to the area of networking, because I realized that it could provide complementary subsidies to broaden my vision, and help me to understand the structure of nature a little bit more.

It took nearly 34 years of research and many failed attempts to find some variables that could support the work of nature. To understand the role of each of them and write the Big Brain Theory took me five years more. Now, I can say that Schopenhauer was right: “Thus, the task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees.” Reading the Big Brain Theory is indispensable for anyone who yearns for logical answers to the big questions of life. It is the only book able to provide a 100% logical worldview.
