Fig. #1. Here is how my appearance (i.e. the appearance of Dr Eng. Jan Pajak) changed over time. After all, in the world ruled by the omniscient God, in which world we live, nothing is a work of only coincident - as so-far are trying to convince us some professional "luminaries of science". In such a world everything, including our appearance, is created by God infinitely wisely and with foresight, thus represents the result of the whole array of precise principles, rules and laws. For example, a big shock turns out to be my discovery, that our appearance, as well as virtually everything that defines the course, the quality, and the features of our lives, is governed by the same laws that govern also over the behaviour of so-called "moral field" - i.e. the field accurately described, e.g. in items #C4.2 and #C4.2.1 of my web page named morals.htm, while briefly summarised e.g. in items #B3 and B4 from another my web page named pajak_re_2017.htm. (This "moral field" causes, among others, that doing of whatever fulfils the moral criteria always requires inserting a significant work and effort. In contrast, doing whatever breaks moral criteria, is always easy and pleasant.) In other words, how we look at a given period of life, as well as e.g. what surname and given name we have, where we were born and live, who are our parents, family, friends, colleagues, what events and fates affect us in life, etc., etc., is ruled by the same moral mechanisms which, among others, also cause that in the short-term action of "moral field" everything that fulfils the moral criteria (i.e. everything that is "moral") requires putting into it our effort and motivation, while everything that breaks moral criteria (i.e. everything that is "immoral") comes to us effortlessly, nicely and easily. It is also this resulting of the current appearance of the individuals from the work of precise principles, rules and laws, that causes the appearance of each of us to always define how other people should relate to us, and also that determines our fate, teaches and informs, reflects our age, character traits, spiritual status, attitude to life, history and way of life, the conditions in which we live, the task which God has appointed to carry out in our lives, etc. Thus, I combined above photographs of the appearance of my face taken apart from each other by every few years, so that they illustrate how this face kept changing with the passage of time. (Under each photo I provided my approximate age in which it was taken.) These photographs are then further enhanced by illustrations of my appearance shown in the film from YouTube the viewing of which I encourage below in item #L5. Therefore, in connection with the descriptions from this web page and from web pages associated with it, the reader probably will be able to realise and trace how the course, goals and achievements of my life God has documented and controlled, among others, with the help of ever-changing appearance of my face. In turn, after learning on my example the laws and principles that govern over the relationship between one's appearance, and characteristics of his/her life which depend on this appearance, the reader should also be in a better position to apply later the same laws and principles to appearances and characteristics of life of other people.
Notice here, however, that in my travels around the world for "bread", until the time of preparing this illustration I changed 37 times the "place of permanent living" ("domicile"), which changes defined the number of moves to different locations that in my life I was forced to experience. In turn Chinese have this saying that well expresses the truth of life, i.e. that "the destruction of three removals are equal to damages of one fire" - which in my case means, amongst others, loosing pictures and accurate information about them. Hence, I do not have now my photographs, which would be taken at equal time intervals, e.g. on my birthdays every 5 years, while the information which about them I still have are only approximate (i.e. what I provided above in the information included under each photo one needs to describe with the term "around"). Also NOT for every my age I have now a passport-type photo. Hence, some of the images shown above are only snippets from some larger photos. (That is why when you click on some out of the above recordings of the appearance of my face, in a separate window may appear the whole photograph from which a give snippet was taken.) Notice also that in order to show individual faces formed into a regular table, the proportions of height to width of some images needed to be altered from their original ratios (which means that on some of these images I look "fatter" or "slimmer" than I looked then in reality). So in order to see a given photo in its original dimensional proportions, you also need to click on it.
Even only a rough comparison of the shown above changes in the appearance of my face with the current states of my knowledge, awareness, goals, attitudes to life, character traits, and other my personal attributes in times of taking these pictures, reveals how precisely are aligned to "moral field", and how precisely work, the mechanisms and laws that govern our appearance. This is why the research on the described here relationship between the appearance, and the characteristics of a person's life, becomes so important and so urgently needed. Unfortunately, as so-far I am practically the only scientist in the world who carries out such research, and whose findings indicate the right direction under which hides the truth about this matter. In spite that such relationships are very complex, while their research is to occupy many researchers and many years, already now some of the discoveries that I made prove to be highly useful in practice. As an example of such practically useful my findings already accomplished, I propose to consider here the correlation between acquiring of habit in the youth to NOT listen to the whispers of ones conscience, and dying at a young age - which the correlation I described e.g. in item #G1 from my web page named will.htm. As I remember well, all my friends from times of youth described in that item #G1, who died at a young age, looked very impressive and handsome, and were particularly pleasant in social interactions - that is, with their appearances and skills of acquiring social popularity they perfectly fit to the English saying "nice dies young". At the same time, however, they demonstrated with their conduct that they do NOT listen to the voice of their conscience. Thus, the practically useful lesson resulting from that item #G1 can be expressed with e.g. words: "if you bind yourself with someone of an impressive appearance and a particularly pleasant social behaviour, then get ready for a lot of pain and disappointments that this relationship is to bring".
Part #C: The course of my professional career:
#C1. Multidisciplinary professional employments:I have the pleasure and honour to belong to these rare scientists, whom their job could extend into several different disciplines. The capability of this multidisciplinary extension of my job I own just to the exceptional academic level on the Technical University of Wrocław in which I finished my studies. As I explained this earlier, according to my own (means unofficial) estimates, the academic level of teaching at the Technical University of Wroclaw in times when I finished that university most probably was amongst the highest in the world. On this excellent education I capitalise later during the entire my life. It is because it allowed me to lecture later on overseas universities not only in Mechanical Engineering - in which I was originally educated, and not only Computer Sciences (informatics) - which I learned during the completion of Master Diploma and my Doctorate from the computer Assisted Design (i.e. from the area which presently is called CAD/CAM), but also lecture Theoretical Mechanics, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, History of Technology (or Engineering and Society), and lately even Mathematics.
My multidisciplinary professional orientation caused that in my career I lectured with equal success in two major disciplines, and in several additional specialisations. Amongst these two major disciplines I lectured (1) Mechanical Engineering, and (2) Computer Sciences (also called informatics). In the Mechanical Engineering I accomplished the level of Associate Professor. In Computer Sciences I accomplished the level of a Full Professor. Because each of the two major disciplines represented like a different section of my professional life, below I am going to discuss each one of them in a separate item.
My professional career in Mechanical Engineering
was started with my employment in 1970 as a
junior lecturer at the
Technical University of Wrocław.
After this employment I climbed fast upwards in the
academic hierarchy, becoming a lecturer and a
senior lecturer within just three next years. After the
defence of my Doctoral Thesis in 1974, I was promoted
to the post of "adiunkt" (an "adiunkt" at Polish universities
was then an equivalent to a "Reader" in the English
university system), on the same
Technical University of Wrocław.
Simultaneously with the work at the university, in years
1978 until the end of 1981 I worked part time as a scientific
consultant in the Department of Production Technology
of the Bus and truck production factory called
This employment in industry gave me an excellent
understanding of industrial reality of Mechanical
Engineering. When I emigrated to New Zealand in
1982, initially I was employed in there for one year at the
University of Canterbury
in Christchurch, as so-called "Post-Doctoral Fellow".
This employment was in the specialisation of Mechanical
Engineering. However, I interrupted work in this specialisation
in 1983, when I got employed at the Polytechnic in
Invercargill - as I am going to describe this in next
item of this web page. To the Mechanical Engineering
I returned again in 1993 when I was employed as an
Associate Professor on the
in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After completing that contract
in 1996 I went to a two-year contract of an Associate
Professor on the
University of Malaysia Sarawak
from the city Kuching, in the Malaysian province named
Sarawak on the tropical island of Borneo. That professorial
contract I completed in 1998. After that date and contract
I ceased to work in the Mechanical Engineering.
