11th April 2005 - Skydiving with a World Champion

During last week I had the privilege of skydiving with Nils Predstrup from the team Funkflyz that have been Freestyle World Champion since 2001. The skills camp in Lillo, Spain, was a great experience that undoubtedly improved my awareness of the safety issues in freefall as well as my range in primarily the head-up position. In general it was impressive to see how Nils could move in ways one would not think possible in the air; it felt to me like the scene in the movie Matrix where the main character’s eyes are opened to a new reality. I would definitely urge other skydivers to consult Nils for coaching; for me with 250 jumps it was both giving and exciting to experience a guy with 5,000 jumps and a lot of talent, not to mention several World Championships!!!

Returning from Spain, the experience made me interested in starting to share some of the skydiving experiences I have had so far, and from this day on I am now getting coaching to become an instructor (level 2) at Q Skydiving Centre in Aalborg, Denmark.

Thanks Nils! ;-)

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
