About our Publisher James Myers
James Myers is publisher of The Quantum Record. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant whose accounting practice myerspro.ca is based in Toronto, Canada. James has also served as a board member and treasurer of several not-for-profit organizations. Before obtaining his professional designation in 1992, James studied history at the University of Toronto, where he lectured in accounting from 2002-2012.
James engages in research on the mathematical, geometric, and philosophical origins of the double-entry system used worldwide by accountants, and is interested in the broader potential of its binary system first published by mathematician Luca Pacioli in 1494. An avid reader and science buff, James’ research interests extend more broadly into the nature of time, mathematics, geometry, physics, and philosophy.
James hosts the biweekly podcast Plato’s Pod that features group discussions on the works of Plato. Plato’s Pod is available on many popular podcasting platforms.
James is currently writing a work of historical fiction featuring the collaboration of Luca Pacioli and his student Leonardo da Vinci, set in Milan where they lived together from 1496-1499. Net proceeds from the work will go to charity.
James is passionate for the advancement of human potential. He is a proud supporter of the Trust for Sustainable Living and the Center for Humane Technology, and their goals. At the core of James’ belief for our time together in the present is the responsibility that adults owe to the children of the world and the countless generations to follow, to apply knowledge and deliver to them a bright future. The same belief we received from our parents and those who preceded them is a debt we owe to those who will follow us in time. Life wouldn’t work any other way, and we can’t expect tomorrow’s leaders to solve today’s problems. Justice demands that we endow the future with the best legacy that our collective intelligence can provide.
James is host of Plato’s Pod, the podcast discussion of the complete works of Plato — the philosopher and geometer who wrote nearly 2,400 years ago. All are welcome to add their voices to the ongoing dialogue of discovery and philosophical curiosity.

Meet our contributors
Our science writer, Dr. Saulo M. Silvestre is a biologist from Sergipe, Brazil.
His research focuses on Ecology, Animal Behavior, and Conservation. In his Ph.D. thesis (2020), he studied the ecology and conservation status of the red-handed howler monkey in Amazonian savannas. During that research, the collaboration with local communities inspired his interest in scientific divulgation.
Our science writer, Mariana Meneses is a political scientist from Sergipe, Brazil.
She’s a 4th year PhD candidate in Political Science whose research focuses on Political Behavior, Public Opinion and Political Psychology. She studies how emotional problems may bias individuals’ political attitudes, and what that means for democracies today. Her passion for science and a more equalitarian world inspires her to propagate scientific knowledge.
