I am a mathematician who likes to do a little anonymous blogging when the mood strikes.  This blog is where I put my longer essays, usually exploring topics relating to philosophy, rationalism, social issues, and analysis of personal and culture-wide disagreements.  I aim to tie together situations and experiences which superficially look quite different but are driven by similar misunderstandings.  I want to understand both the parallels and the distinctions between a hawk and a handsaw.

I am but mad north-north west…

— from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2
