I am the lord thy God, and thou shalt have no other Gods before me.
Leviathan is a cyberpunk horror novel I had originally started writing around 2015 to 2016, gave up on, then came back to finish in 2018 and 2019 and finalize editing and formatting today. It’s a book that I’ve long been promising a release for, and I’m happy to say it’s finally out.
Not much more I wanted to say for this post. Go check it out here.
Over the past few years I’ve delved into researching what makes successful people so successful in the first place.

Whenever I’m in a job interview, I always tell people that my career mission statement is “to work on complex and meaningful problems with smart people”.

There are many positive cycles within our society, but there as just as many negative ones as well. I’ve hinted at these so called vicious cycles before, but I’ve never discussed them in depth on the site. In this post I want to go over what I feel are some of the most dangerous cycles our culture is up against, and what are some things that can be done to potentially dissolve them.
