What's new:

πŸ“― I have started a newsletter. It shall be a stromata of anecdotes, fables, tales, advice if you ask for it, photography, questions, sentiment, and ways to get lost in the forest. Some of it will be private. Some will be legible. Not too legible I hope.

Some highlights:

In Praise of the Gods: What the Rationalistic World Forgot (Jul 20 2020), the stupor of rationality β€’ stories, building intuition β€’ alchemy, building process β€’ religion, building wonder β€” Why rationalism is overdone, how to build your intuition, why I call myself an alchemist, and how I think about religion.

Long Distance Thinking (Jan 13 2022), True things are disclosed slowly.

The Most Precious Resource is Agency (June 30 2021), The world is a very malleable place.

Are We Still Thinking? (Jan 18 2021), We lived in a state of dialogue for millennia, almost all knowledge was two-way communication. Even with books, every person talked to more people, sometimes in a single day, than they had ever read. Then between the printing press and radio we switched to one-way communication as the norm, and now it's the opposite. The consequences of this are not fully appreciated.

Where to Live (Aug 25, 2020)

Photography Workflow (Jul 5 2020), I detail how I edit photos, and recommendations for new photographers

On the Usefulness of Photography (Jun 30 2020), Photography is a magical art and an underrated tool: Combined with modern photo storage it is the biggest boost to memory since the invention of writing. I have for you here some notes on it’s usefulness and the art.
