New publication and I’m so happy it’s fiction!!! A tale of unrequited eros, drowning, stargazer lilies, body doubles, video games in Nairobi, whiskey, mania and machine learning. “Dimensionality Curses”.

These days I keep thinking that the goal of psychiatry shouldn’t be to know the mind, but to nurture it. About how important that distinction is. Despite the seeming connection to my research, I don’t use the work of N. Katherine Hayles, most because I think there’s immanent humanism in her “posthuman.”This is the same […]
