On nothingness, and all the other things that are too much, but not enough, to grasp

Inescapable Voids

Sitting on the sun- and wind-swept shore of a secluded lake that I often frequent, I came to a number of realizations regarding a concept I’ve always had some trouble grasping — one that has engaged the deepest echelons of our cognitive and imaginative faculties since we could begin to…

Unravelling the process by which we turn imaginative potential into actualized reality

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted…

Prescient truths from a certain uncertainty

“There are no facts, only interpretations.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

In the way that we cling to stability and progress, while only keeping the unpredictable nature of life at a daydreams distance, we risk mishandling our navigation through reality, assuming arrogantly that we hold some semblance of control over everything around…

Defining particles and riding waves to arrive at…

The grooves that define us

Thanks to our intuitive assembly of various concepts emanating from physics and quantum physics, from the natural world and from the ideations that have emerged alongside our own evolution — from biological assumptions and religious inclinations — we’ve come to appreciate everything as consisting within a certain framework: a divine…

Beware: This is a McKenna-heavy post

“Intuition is a feeling into things that comes to answers and leaves no trail.” - Terence McKenna

“In the felt domain of experience called living, intuition is how most of us, even the most self-defined as non-intuitional, are operating. Intuition is a kind of field processing of the foreground and the background of experience. …

Floating atop the currents of coherent possibility. Again.

“The only pure way to have a wave is for it to be its own medium. Waves propagate outwards, and they can be large or small. That’s what waves do.” — Carver Mead

Buoyant Beginnings

Our main disadvantage in this world, especially when it comes to trying to understand the strange behaviors…

And why you have to unsee it to believe it

We ought to leg go of this annoyingly limiting, empirically-grounded idea that whatever we see doesn’t exist.

While we acknowledge that we only see a sliver of world that’s actually around us, we often attribute this to contexts beyond our understanding — say, cosmology or quantum physics. …

What’s Going On?

The mysteries of our existence and the enigmas of our reality are the challenge of our times. We may never know the full truth.

From the grainy black and white question marks that hover about events like Roswell to the four-eyed physical perplexities of quantum physics, there’s a common denominator scratched onto all the walls of our minds whereby these mysteries relentlessly bounce around.

That common denominator is this: we may have a lot…

On our inevitable collision course with the true nature of our potential

“A dynamic interplay in which particles are created and destroyed without end in a continual variation of energy patterns… The whole universe is thus engaged in endless motion and activity; in a continual cosmic dance of energy” — Fritjof Capra

Can an analogy be drawn between human nature and particle…
