At various times I have been a mathematician, a cognitive scientist and an activist. I pretend to be a philosopher every once in a while and dabble in fiction writing when none of these intellectual pursuits are working out.
When I am being self-important, I like to think I am curious about knowledge in all its forms. It’s because I grew up with many imaginary friends. Some were only a little dissimilar: left-handed when I am right-handed, humble when I am arrogant. Other imaginaries were entirely different; one a tree, another a stone. All of them suffer from the same problem….they’re chained to my karmic ship. I treat them as well as I can.
