Whenever I see a headline about an advance in our understanding of consciousness or brain function, I expect to see my paradigm busting through the old one, but it never happens. I guess I have to do it myself. To this end, I would like to use this blog as a testbed for ideas and writing that can later be assembled into a book outlining a better way to think about brains.
With your feedback, I can sharpen and organize my ideas and hopefully find an effective way to communicate complex thoughts. A place dedicated to finding the missing think seems like a fine forum for formulating a more fruitful neurophilosophy.
I guess the first question is how to use Typepad for this project. Should I create Posts or Pages? I'm thinking Page = Chapter might work. Microblog sounded promising until I read about it. I would like to be able to edit and expand chapters as we go, and regular blog posting is not the right format for working that way. Anyone have experience doing something similar?
