Maharishi University of Management* computer science student Stewart Dickson's unique computer-generated images of mathematical formulas have appeared on the cover of numerous scientific books since the 1980s. He was also a pioneer in creating digital sculptures of these mathematical formulas with a technology that later evolved into 3D printing. . . . Stewart has combined his computer skills with his interest in science, graphics, and animation to create visual effects at Walt Disney Animation Studios, design a software to visualize biomedical data, and build computer graphic tools for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Stewart learned about MUM in 2012, when a university editor contacted him about using one of his computer graphics. . . . Later the editor sent Stewart a copy of the proceedings of the symposium on Consciousness-Based education. After reading the book, Stewart was convinced. ''All the science is logically sound; all the philosophy is logically sound here.''
Stewart has always wanted to attend graduate school, but he also wanted keep working while going school. MUM's ComPro Program was a great fit because he could take most of his classes via distance education and keep his job.
At MUM Stewart's interest in computer science and the science of consciousness recently spurred him to write a paper about the convergence of computational theory and consciousness, which he intends to publish in the International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness.
