Popular Work

Among the 100+ essays I have written so far, I’m content with some, disappointed in others, and proud of a few. Fortunately, they do seem to be trending in the right direction.

The following list is divided into three categories in which I have chosen the most popular and most impactful of my work, as measured by total readership and general response.

Some of them align with my own opinion of what I consider good, whereas others do not. That’s okay. This list will give you a rough idea of how I think about the workings of reality.
