I write about the history of culture and ideas, with an emphasis on philosophy, literature, music, religion, and history. You can read more about the history of this blog here.
Ares of interest include general system theory, metaphysics and phenomenology, ethics, Modernist poetry and literature, cognitive and social psychology, psychotherapy process research, comparative religions, Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, symphony and opera, entheogens in history and culture, and world history from the paleolithic through the present.
By day I’m a technical writer at Oculus VR, focusing on our mobile and game integration SDKs.
I currently live in Redwood City with Mrs. O’Cosm.
mes-o-cosm [mez-uh-koz-uh m] –noun 1. The intermediary zone of engagement that lies between the microcosm (individual) and the macrocosm (the universe). Usually understood to be the domain of human interaction and culture.
Or, if you prefer, Urban Dictionary gives: “It’s in between macrocosm and microcosm which mean really big and really little, respectively. It is commonly used by crazy English teachers who enjoy torturing their students and eating the souls of little toddlers.”
