Themes

A Close To The Edge theme refers to a particular concept, model, approach, or way of thinking which I have incorporated into my view of the world. I consider these themes essential to my “cognitive toolkit” – they help describe behavior, the universe, thought, and countless other topics I encounter.

Here is the collection of themes I’ve discussed so far, as well as ones I hope to discuss in the future.
