I attempt to run more high level academic discussion communities on philosophy and psychoanalysis.  If you support me at this level you will get full open-access to these communities so that you can engage with me more directly and stay in touch on social media.

About

WHO?
The primordial philosophical question: who am I?  Well I can tell you that I do not really know with 100% certainty, but I do think that the very process of figuring that out is who I really am.  In other words, the very process of self discovery is the true identity of the self.  The constant of my process is a curious drive to explore the boundaries and edges of my world, where I feel resistance and where I feel fear, is exactly the space that needs to be traversed with intense courage.  Thus I am someone who always aims to be changing and evolving.  This first led me into the domains of anthropology and history, where I focused on attempting to understand the history of our species, and second led me into the domains of philosophy and psychoanalysis, where I focus on attempting to understand the internal realm of the human drive.  I am now a formally certified doctor of philosophy who has an expertise in an interdisciplinary training which gives me the flexibility to approach a range of phenomena from a novel perspective.

WHAT?
I provide high level philosophical and psychoanalytic content in blogs, vlogs, online courses and podcast formats.  You can find this material on my website and YouTube channel.  The start of this work can be traced back to my early years as a Masters student (2012-2014) when I felt frustrated with the constraints and limitations internal to the academic structure.  I felt that my full potential for creative expression was not finding its proper outlet.  This led me to explore blogging, podcasting and YouTube for the first time with a project called "The Advanced Apes".  This project allowed me to express in a way that felt true to my spirit and allowed me to explore territory that I had not traversed before.  Move forward to the present and I am just finishing my doctoral research.  I now feel that my online projects reflect more than just an extra outlet for creative expression, but rather more of a duty or responsibility to meaning and purpose in the world at large.  I hold my self to extremely high intellectual standards because I want to make sure the content I am providing to you is going to be content that catalyses or sparks your understanding to new realms of personal integration.

WHY?
I have been acutely aware for some time that our world is changing fast and that this change was going to lead to a qualitative transformation in many different fields of human existence.  I believe that navigating this transformation is one of the most important (if not the most important) directives that one can dedicate one's time to in this present moment.  We need to rethink reality from the ground up, which is why thinking the foundations of philosophy and psychoanalysis is such a crucial and revolutionary action.  We need to think technological potential and consequence; psychological trauma and resistance; social connection and community; ecological relation and interpretations; economic equality and distribution; political structure and aims; scientific knowledge and limitations; religious faith and essence; sexual experience and intimacy; gender identity and expression.  Thus I try to open and hold this space of discourse in the highest form I can manage.  I hope that as a result the transformations of our world gain new reflectivity and understanding.

Goals
34 of 50 patrons
When I reach 50 patrons per month I would love to invest more time and energy into this channel.  I think that the opportunities to expand content towards more book reviews, research analysis, popular commentary, academic interviews, and so forth, is almost endless.
