Sam Brinson is creating stuff that explores the mind

The name's Sam, and I'm an Uruguay-based, New Zealand-born writer. There's one central topic regarding my writing—the past, present, and future of the mind.

A hefty topic indeed, one that has, 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.

My aim is to have articles published once to twice every two weeks. They take time to research and write—I also add my own illustrations! With support from you and other Patrons I hope to produce more content, and even branch out into other forms of media such as videos and podcasts.

Why Patreon?

Passion about the mind and brain has kept me going. But it all takes time and effort. Patreon is a place for those that enjoy what I do to show their support through a monthly contribution. 

By becoming a patron, you'll help me cover the costs and maybe even upgrade the content. Plus, you'll make me feel all warm inside knowing you like what I do. 

I'll say thanks like this:
  • We can interact on the Patreon message board, plus early access to posts and sneak peaks along the way. [$1 per month]
  • 100% discount on Connecting the Dots and any future publications. [$5 per month]

Any more than that, and you're crazy. But a good crazy, the kind of crazy I'm totally on board with.

What's 'Connecting the Dots'?
This is my first (and currently only) book. It's my baby. And it's all about learning to learn.

I wrote it because what better skill is there than being able to learn quickly and efficiently? In my mind, there is none. But learning isn't easy, and while the internet has made it easier to get information, it hasn't necessarily made it easier to learn.

So I set out to explore just how learning occurs, the purpose and illusions of memory, and how we can form more accurate beliefs in a digitized age of misinformation and alternative facts.

You can check it out here, or get a hefty discount (100%) by choosing to support me here on Patreon.

Goals
$6 of $200 per month
Let me keep doing what I love to be doing! This goal would help cover all the niggling costs, ie:
  • Website hosting
  • Service subscriptions
  • Advertising
  • Book test copies
  • Research materials
...and of course, time! Which comes in limited supply, most unfortunately
