In the works for 2021 -- The Glyph: a collection and Listen (an autobiographical sketch) Donate now Reality morphing: a simple visualization"How do people’s perspectives differ and yet co-exist in a singular shared reality? I’m going to answer with a visual puzzle. I have yet to meet anyone who is not taken aback by it." Brief bio "My work renews mystery. It turns fear of inquiry about the unknown into a welcoming spirit towards what's possible. How is that possible? Rather than 'Like nothing you've seen before!' it's not unlike anything." (Sm)Art: Contemplation of Relational Beingness"be curious about what relational meanings might look like. How might relational meanings be experienced differently than what you are so far familiar with, and why might it be useful?" Big Intelligence Primer“Meta can get much more interesting and productive than entertainingly circular stories.” Is Science Stoking Authoritarianism?“without alignment between facts and the messiness of being, people get desperate for someone outside of themselves to tell them what reality model to operate from.” Notes from the Existential Underground“People yearn for something more robust and meaningful than physics’ parade of subatomic predicates. Popularisers of science as well as those concerned with uniting knowledge and spiritual traditions have stepped into the substance vacuum.” Cowgirl Science -- It's a ramble“a lifetime of avoiding confusion or being wrong or lost hardens our souls to soft knowledge, that is, what really matters in our own brief existences.” Journey"un-boggle the mind one searching thought at a time... counteract information overload and reinvigorate wise inquiry." Notes from the Existential Underground"When progress or saving us from ourselves supplants the more fundamental understanding that we are part of a cosmic logic much bigger than ourselves, when the projection of well-meaning onto our incomplete but hard-sought logical ways, we find ourselves in the awkward position of defending the indefensible." Reality Science: perceptual field or perceptual void“Being perceptive beings is where we must lay the groundwork for the future of science and philosophy to intersect constructively.” ONT"Existence has a language and words are inadequate to describe it, unless we let certain ones be framed in complex relation to each other in a way that is in harmony with subtle, dynamic reality.” Big Intelligence Primer"Big intelligence is complicated, but not necessarily infinitely so." Notes from the Existential Underground"At the macro level in the sciences, usefulness is and will itself remain a useful standard; at the existential level in physics, deviation from causal usefulness started long ago. To be fair, the situation is not comfortable for anyone involved." Interview on Mind Body Attention"I am in favor of a more conservative view of the Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe, or CTMU, than Chris Langan’s original." Implications of a Novel View"Theoretical physics has a considerable task. It is charged with perceiving the imperceptible. Yet, the scientific method should not be allowed to usurp the importance of nature’s phenomenology. Moreover, physics has much to learn from a systematic evaluation of the physical origin and 'meaning' of existence and its many manifestations."
