This site is a home for writing that reflects some of my diverse interests: This year (2021) I’m writing a lot about the politics and science of COVID. Other favorite topics include

  • the nexus between science and mysticism

  • free speach and press censorship

  • yoga and meditation

  • exercise, diet, and self-care

  • physical cosmology (and its limits)

  • quantum biology

  • parapsychology

  • classical music

  • alternative histories of anthropology (Graham Hancock)
