Hi, I’m Ben, welcome to the shimmering void.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with understanding reality. Everything seems connected, but how? My writing aims to find answers by exploring all my interests, woven through one another: video games, programming, design, psychology, philosophy, spirituality, biology, education, physics and art.

I synthesise whatever I’m thinking, reading, watching and struggling with into each post with no guarantee of what comes out.

The goal is to help my readers and myself think clearly and feel deeply.
