Evolutionary biologists write about vestigial organs and how they’ve lost most of their original function through evolution. What about the possibility of an organ that has an extraordinary new function waiting to evolve INTO? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately in terms of my new skill, Upsight. I’ve been thinking about the possibility that I
In this math post, I’ll explain how my brain processes 2 and 3-dimensional Upsight images and how these images translate into deeper mathematical insights. Let’s start with an example of what I “see” when I shut my eyes and shift my attention. Let’s say I’m looking at a 2-dimensional graph or pie chart created

Earlier this year I stumbled across a phenomenon known as the ganzfeld effect. From Wikipedia: The ganzfeld effect (from German for “complete field”) or perceptual deprivation is a phenomenon of perception caused by exposure to an unstructured, uniform stimulation field.
