What is the Contemplative Primate?
The Contemplative Primate explores our place in the universe and how to live better lives as humans on Earth. The name pays homage to two unifying themes: that we as humans are primates with a psychology and physiology shaped by our evolutionary history; and that we have the unique ability to contemplate our own existence and shape our own behavior.
I draw on insights from physics, biology, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, economics, philosophy, and various religious and contemplative traditions. For the unabridged origin story, I invite you to grab a kombucha and head over to Writing.
