Daniel Comp - Author/Curator

"You can paint an interesting character with the evidence of my life. I am a curious explorer, an ambitious entrepreneur, a functional Aspergian, a military Veteran, a Christian storyteller, and hopefully a noble father. Despite numerous achievements, I didn't understand why I did what I did (widwid).

"Across numerous expeditions, I video journaled, seeking freedom from anxiety, fear, frustration, depression, addiction, boredom, and anger. The outcome of my journey with a purpose - a 'Personal Everest' as I call it - was discovering that self-reflection video modeling is an effective method for transformation. For this reason, I created the Scotomaville program as a second edition 336-page full-color workbook, a 48-episode video series, and an ongoing online support platform for others to champion their Personal Everest.

"I am guiding expeditions for like-minded eccentrics to "follow in the way I began" (Blaise Pascal). Explorers become aware of blindspots and recognize how modern life games our psychology and physiology. This shift in awareness and pivot of faulty mindsets can turn obstacles into opportunities, transforming the life they were handed into outcomes they design.

"Participants document their "journey with a purpose" and experience personal and professional transformation by understanding why we do what we do (wwdwwd). Simultaneously, they build a corpus for their family and digital avatar, passing along insights from hard-earned lessons and character changes valued by close relationships and future generations.

"I believe the greatest expedition you will ever undertake is the journey to self-understanding. I challenge you to such a journey! Join us in getting the heck out of Scotomaville.""

"The greatest expedition you will ever undertake is the journey to self-understanding"





Most people respond to chaos and stress with coping mechanisms, amygdala hijackings, and reactive behavior. For some of us, curiosity dominates. We want to know "Why We Do What We Do." and are committed to exploring the unknown... to 'Know Thyself'. The Author cycled across America three times asking this.

The pandemic has challenged us with hardships, losses, setbacks, missed opportunities, and personal drama. (1) Americans are weary of rapidly accelerating change.

We are flooded with messaging that games our biological and psychological bents. (2) Emotions easily overwhelm our reasoning to control our actions. We're further conflicted by being 100% wrong 50% of the time. (3) (4)

We're hoodwinked and bamboozled by tech, media, and popular narratives using trickery, flattery, and omission. (5) The adage to 'Know Thyself' is no longer a luxury. It's become a full-out competition with supercomputers pointed at our brains. (6)



The Scotomaville program utilizes an IMPARTATION METHODOLOGY that leads the participants in self-reflection via video modeling of the authors. In addition, the impartation model fosters and scales the personal transformation of the participant by nurturing them through the community development process:
I Do - You Watch, We Do - We Watch, You Do - I Watch .

(I Do - You Watch)
The authors have unique insights as owners of a media, marketing, and web technology firm since '97 (before Google). (7) By video journaling their 'journey with a purpose', they demonstrate the use of 15 mental tools, simple tests, and insights that help to overcome day-to-day challenges.

With a smartphone participants can mimic the resiliency of Daniel and Angelina to advance, despite challenges, as they champion a decades-long recovery from a Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, financial setbacks, lost opportunities, and chronic stress.

(We Do - We Watch)
The thirty episodes, and chapters of the 335-page guide, are cross-linked by QR codes to an online discussion for subscribers. Peer support, mentoring, and 1-on-1 private ticketing with the author(s) are available. Participant and sponsor recognition is optional across the syndication of 4500+ websites. (8)

(You Do - I Watch)
Upcoming are base camp summits, private retreats, and physical expeditions for leaders. With a licensed platform, a certified leader can facilitate individuals and groups to "follow in the way which they began".



By climbing a 'Personal Everest' and testing for oneself, the claims of W.H. Murray, and the Authors that Personal Expeditions are filled with "unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no one could have dreamt would have come their way" (9) participating explorers can develop clarity, stability, healing, and successes by gaming their own biases.

Personal transformation begins with awareness of one's physical and mental self. When combined with understanding, support, and discipline, incremental character change transforms one's beliefs, attitudes, and behavior.

By demonstrating that our gut and brain are interdependent, that sleep and stress affect choices, and that going alone is dangerous, SCOTOMAVILLE gives insights and examples for others to mimic while gaming their inherent cognitive biases.



A 'Personal Everest' is a journey with a purpose.

"But at least learn your inability... and ask the remedy for it. Learn of those who have been bound like you... These are people who know the way which you would follow, and who are cured of an ill of which you would be cured. Follow the way by which they began... "

A Personal Everest is a journey with a purpose. It is a self-defined expedition of personal development, with support and guidance.

SCOTOMAVILLE is an unconventional and effective self-help model and platform with a convincing challenge: We can change our life experiences by gaming our own handicaps, strengthening alliances, challenging our shortcomings and changing our false beliefs by taking on our Personal Everest.
