The frame that there some outside authority on which you should rely isn't what this forum is about. Academics are normal people and you could be one if you want.
Steve isn't really interested in academia but rather in changing peoples lives directly through workshops, articles and books. However ideas aren't owned by people. They are out there and everyone can do with them what they want.
You are right, there is no reason why someone else should do the work that I want to have done. I don't want to convince Steve to do what I think.
I just want to point out that seeing one problem from different points of view (view of ordinary people, view of academics, view of religion for example) are much more valuable as it seems to be in the first place. "Point of view is worth eighty points of IQ." - Alan Kay
Sure, I will examinate Steve's stuff and do my own research. But, of course, it will take years to get proper knowledge and experiences.
By this is thread closed. Thanks for replies to all.
