Hello, there.

I’m Zat Rana: a writer. I try to express and understand the nuances of the human condition. To this end, I am as inspired by philosophy and science as I am by art and history.

My hope is to fuse wisdom from diverse origins so I can paint a sharper image of reality. This approach is well-encapsulated by a note Leonardo da Vinci once wrote to himself:

“Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”

I’m not always right, and I’ve written many things I now disagree with. I’m fine with that. It allows this to be a space where I can experiment, and it challenges you to think for yourself.

My essays are posted here regularly, but the best way to keep in touch is via email. I send a newsletter every Sunday sharing new work, striking thoughts, and book recommendations.
