More than a lifestyle, larger than any single idea, broader than a conviction, philosophy is the love of exploration, of knowledge, of uncertainty, and of that cornerstone of free thinking: doubt.

Philosophy is a great companion and a roadmap to navigate life’s major milestones, including: How to make sense of deathWhat loving someone or something meansThe effect of art on our livesWhat role language plays in understanding the worldHow do our ideas affect our actions

The application of negative impedance converter circuits for use in extremely broadband antenna systems is proposed. The theory of short antennaes, and means of achieving a conjugate impedance match to them, is discussed. Synthesis methods that yield the required converters, uncompensated or compensated, are presented. Lastly, the performance of several of the constructed antenna systems are compared with that of a 12 foot whip. (Author).
