You have just entered my blog. A place where I aim to shine light into the hard truths about our world. We are living at a time of multiple blockages preventing us from seeing our society for what it really is. This is the time to be curious and creative: to dissect and challenge constructs and systems of thought that have been around for ages, and boldly dream of other ways to be, as the planet’s collapse forces us to change our ways one way or another.
My writing has been described by my readers as a mix of philosophy, science, spirituality and psychology. As a molecular biologist, chemist and food scientist, I cannot help but approach the climate crisis through a methodic systems approach. However I quickly move on from that narrow lens and to the much bigger one, which is the meaning of our existence. I often ask why we, humans, do the things that we do, which often seem to make no sense. My ambition is to try and reveal, to set free, the Other Human that resides in each one of us: a human who has been caged, suppressed, traumatised, silenced and forgotten by centuries of capitalism and the CO2 life-support Machine. Myself included.
