If there was a sub-heading for my new book, this would be it. An alternative title would be, "Why I have not been blogging of late."
As anyone who's had the misfortune to be within earshot of me in a bar will know, I've been writing a book. There's not a day that goes by without me blurting it out loud on the subway in NYC on my way to work. It started out as a broad history about our attempts to describe 3-D space on 2-D canvas, but it pulled way back to become a story about how we create the idea of ourselves ... of reality, really.
I'm uploading what may end up being the first chapter. I do hope someone out there will read it. If you are that person, please let me know what you think.
I would include an introduction, but I have not written it yet. Let's just say; it's to do with outsiders, hermits, garden gnomes, weirdos, oddballs and everyone that society considers to be a kook. I believe that these people are fundamental to the conception of what civilization is.
Anyway; here it is... Please download the PDF at the link below, and you can open it on any one of your devices.
