Essays

I have a number of essays which will be [freely] published somewhere in the future.  I’m not sure where yet, so suggestions are welcome.

Because sites like Elephant Journal want “original” articles, please do not post this content online, and excuse the and password-protection on this page.

Please enjoy, and send any feedback to alec@arborrhythms.com

  • Proof of Altruism: 5/29/2017.  A toy proof demonstrating that our essential nature is kindness.
  • Selflessness Overview : updated 7/7/2016.  An overview of selflessness.
    • Cognitive Selflessness : updated 7/7/2016.  The conceptual side of selflessness.
    • Emotional Selflessness : updated 7/7/2016.  The emotional side of selflessness? Yes. Some original thinking, which I believe will be of benefit to fellow seekers.
    • Physical Selflessness : updated 7/7/2016.  The physical side of selflessness. Not entirely, but it rounds out a trio of essays, and it takes on less of a heady perspective and more of an embodied perspective.
  • Cup: Reflected : updated 1/1/2016.  This serves as a (simple) pictorial overview of Cognitive Set Theory. Readers interested in logic might look at some of the other essays on that site: CST blog
