Epistemology, Cognition and Category Theory: An Overview

I love learning new things. I get to experience beginner's mind again and it gives me a chance to reflect on the process I use to learn. By actively observing beginner's mind, you can refamiliarize yourself with its nature, so that you might be able to partially apply this state of mind when you need it. By introspecting on this process, I hope to continually improve it. I try to approach new activities and skills from a multitude of perspectives and I like to examine the similarities between everything.

Experiences in Meditation

There’s a lot of things I want to write about, but I fear that I’m running out of time. I’m always spending my time learning, reading and working on projects. I haven’t really spent time on myself in so long. I have like 50 blog topics piled up that I want to write about and I’m worried that if I don’t write them now, I’ll never get to. They’re all like 5,000 word articles – that’s like fucking 250,000 words I need to write. I’ve been dreaming deeply for so long now. There’s so much still buried within me that’s never made it out. I’m not sure, but I feel like some of what was within me has made a pretty big difference in the world.

Seven Negative Career Experiences

After the party, we hung out a bit in Boulder's Central Park. Then, I asked her back to the apartment. We were walking back, but about halfway there, I told her about the bedbugs. She freaked out. Here's the punchline: A fucking homeless girl wanted nothing to do with my bedbug ridden apartment!

Celtic Hyperdimensional Space Graffiti and Writers' Block

Lately, I’ve been struggling with Writer’s Block. But, just trust me, I have no shortage of ideas. Recently, I’ve been writing a lot and, to great chagrin, I’ve been enjoying myself quite a bit. So, I’m going to detail a few ideas for blog posts. I hope that you’ll provide me with feedback in the comments.

Oh I Have this Stellar Startup Idea Worth Millions ★ Just Kidding ★ April Fools

So, I just want to explain why I feel like the most underrated, overlooked person on the planet. Below is a business proposal I submitted to Virginia Tech for their Game Changers Challenge Loan, a $25,000 loan to start a business. There was a 5-page limit to entries, so this business proposal is not perfect. Admittedly, one of the rules for this contest was that your business could not be one that needed the first $25,000 of a $500,000 seed round. So I did not expect to win.

Not really though … But wouldn’t it be cool if it was?

Defense Against The Dark Arts: How to Fight Back Without Losing Your Mind

These tools will help you, but you will notice sometimes that these really really piss a bully off. Be warned - some battles aren't worth fighting. Your energy and talents may be better suited elsewhere. Of course, that's not to say you shouldn't stand up for yourself.

Defense Against The Dark Arts: Perps, Trolls and Passive Aggressive Tactics

One of the worst aspects of passive aggressive behavior -- and one reason that it is so effective -- is that positive behavior becomes easy to confuse with negative behavior, since the goal is to confuse cause and effect, to encourage inaction and to prevent interference.

Defense Against The Dark Arts: Moot Victims, Sun Tzu, Strategy And End Games

And too often, when I complain to my friends and family, they just tell me to look past it, to ignore it. They claim I'm paranoid or looking too deeply into things. Actually, this isn't terrible advice: it's important to not get caught up in a bully's games, but sometimes they're really hard to ignore. I'm tired of doing nothing. So, I'm going to describe exactly how to do this to someone. This is how it happens. Personally, I'm amazed that some poeple are capable of this or that people could do this at all.
