writings
 
These writings explore the intersections and parallels between art, science and the spiritual, regarding each field as potentially an open and systematic enquiry into the deep structure of human experience. In the arts I cover fine art, cinema and literature, in the sciences I range from the hard sciences through philosophy to the social sciences including economics, and in the spiritual I take a particular interest in using Eastern ideas to illuminate Western traditions.
