Substack is where all the cool writers hang these days. But I’d resisted joining until Twitter started imploding, and I decided to find a way to get a Blue Sky invite quicker.
I also thought maybe I could use Substack to make this website’s newsletter easier to manage.
But it did give me a way to finally make real a long-simmering idea. You see, I write on brain injury, but the mind fascinates me much more. And I’ve long wanted to study Revelation. My brain injury had made it impossible to join my Pastor’s bible study years ago on it, and now that cognitively I can study it, he’s gone and there’s no group anymore. So why not study it through a newsletter and hope others will follow and comment and discuss it with me?
I wrote my first post for Mind Explorer, the Substack Newsletter, on my intention and hopes for it.
So excited was I about finally delving into the hard problem — consciousness and the mind — that I reproduced my first essay on how philosophy differs from science from my 2012 Philosophy of Mind Oxford short course and added comments.
But now I’ll start delving into Revelation. I’ll be posting erratically, as my energy and endless distractions allow. So the best way to never miss a post is to subscribe to Mind Explorer!
