I find we have a common understanding on many issues, and Alan is a particularly poetic writer, so a joy to read. Recently he shared copies of his paper “Inlcusional Science – From Artefact to Natural Creativity” (no link … Continue reading “Alan Rayner’s Inclusional Science”

I’m reading my way through Carlo Rovelli’s “The Order of Time” (Finished Part 1 of 3) and finding it full of items that resonate.
