The Extended Mission
Refine The Mind is about motivating all of us (myself included) to think more deeply about our lives. It’s about compelling people to look past the surface, to find a broader perspective, and to care a bit more about the world and other humans. The core ethos of Refine The Mind is closely related to the idea that before meaningful changes can occur on the planet, they must occur in the minds of individuals.
To uphold this vision, Refine The Mind’s focus is on being a cross-disciplinary collection of thought-provoking content and perspective. What that means, in practice, is that I absorb a lot of content and write about what I feel is relevant to this site.
I read and research widely in the areas of fiction, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, ecology, history, and psychology. I extract morsels from what I read, combine them with my subjective experience and perspective, and present them on this site in an ongoing narrative about what humans do, why we do what we do, and what we might do to better the world and render our lives meaningful.
At least, this is my aim. The mission becomes clearer all the time.
