Like any true philosopher, my goal is a unifying theory.
Currently, I have only disparate thoughts. This website is an effort toward assembling them in a place accessible to others.
Generally, I believe the universe is itself the unifying theory. As far as I can tell, the universe, meaning “all that there is,” experiences itself as consciousness, and the two are mutually exclusive. The universe can be universal, or it can be conscious, but not both at the same time. Beyond that, most things seem up for grabs.
There are a number of delightfully interesting threads worth exploring. I’ll add more as I come to them, but here are a few to start:
- Being* – what does it mean to be, particularly without consciousness
- Language* – does anything precede it
*an acknowledgement to Dr. Robert Walsh for leading me to these investigations
