I am a statistician and programmer by day, and a writer and athlete by night.

On my blog (inferentiality.wordpress.com) I explore the philosophical connections between meaning, explanation, body, and mind. I believe that long-term alleviation of suffering will not be achieved solely by building the best technology, nor uncovering the perfect ideology, but by building great men and women. Our obsession with producing the greatest technological advancements in history has led us to neglect the important task of ensuring that moral, intellectual, and philosophical advancements have made similar bounds. What was once held in the Subject has been abstracted away into the Object, and machine replaces man even for tasks that were once believed only a human could accomplish. 

My solution is to encourage men and women to be as competent as they can be in mind, body, and soul, and to cultivate this competence through strenuous living and disciplined examination of their world through study, experience, and exploration. I encourage those who work in technology, as I myself do, to consider the great power of their tools to be extensions of the mind's abilities, not suitable replacements for them. I encourage the commoner to consider him or herself an athlete; a warrior in preparation to confront the chaos that encroaches on them, and the ones they love. I encourage the average person aspire to be a non-specialist, well-versed in the world and its phenomena, and comfortable handling ambiguities for further consideration.

To organize my thoughts, I created a blog where I discuss these various qualities and wisdom for their implementations according to my own limited experience. I also discuss a paradigm shift that needs to occur in my own field of expertise, statistics, that I often use as a metaphor for what I discuss concerning the mind (they are indeed the same subject; there is only one way that information is processed).
