Just published a new essay and podcast: Pushing the Envelope—Boundary Expansion into Novelty in Personal and Evolutionary Contexts ( http://zaporacle.com/pushing-the-envelope-boundary-expansion-into-novelty-in-personal-and-evolutionary-contexts/) This essay/podcast may give you new insights about your own relationship to pushing the envelope and its evolutionary context.
I have also been publishing some articles in the popular online magazine, Reality Sandwich. Transcending Online Road Rage (http://www.realitysandwich.com/transcending_online_road_rage) investigates the strange sources of a well-known contemporary phenomenon. Some of the comments posted at the end are hilarious specimens of web rage and reveal aspects of the phenomenon that I analyze in reply postings. A Guide to the Perplexed Interdimensional Traveler (http://www.realitysandwich.com/guide_perplexed_interdimensional_traveler) is a document you may have already seen on my site, but the RS version adds some interesting comments and it has very recently been revised. Both articles are edited by Austin Iredale who did not get editing credit on RS for some reason.
I’d love to hear what you think of any of the above. Please send feedback to [email protected]
