Hi, thanks for checking my page out. I'm Sam, I spend most of my time learning, writing, and illustrating the things I'm interested in. 

What am I interested in? Minds, brains, and machines, mostly. I'm driven by questions like what consciousness is, how our minds work, what they might be like in the future, and how we might create artificial minds.

Hefty topics indeed. They have, on many occasions, resigned me to the corner of a dark room cradling a soft pillow... yet on other occasions given me insights into who I am, who we are, and where we're going, which makes it all worthwhile.

Each article will be rather lengthy, in fact I expect it will be somewhat more like a short book. For that reason, it's difficult to tell how long each will take. But when they're ready, they will be published here and on my website for free.

The advantage of becoming a patron is access to pdf and ebook versions—along with the knowledge that you're helping to make such things possible. I will also make them available for a single dollar. Of course, you're more than welcome to contribute as much as you like.

The current topic stewing in my mind is cognitive effort—why does thinking seem like such a strain?

Stay tuned!

This would allow me to spend more time researching, writing and designing, by covering all the niggling costs, ie:
  • Website hosting
  • Adobe and other service subscriptions
  • Advertising
  • Research materials
  • ...and of course, time itself!
