I wrote an introduction for Judith Stenneken’s new photography book A Mountain is Only a Slow Wave. Judith undertakes parallel investigations into time and consciousness through her photographic work, and I hope my piece on impermanence serves to enhance the power of her images. Click the link below to read a preview of the essay and learn more about Judith’s beautiful and interesting project.

Guest Post: “Is Reality a Hologram?” by George Musser
I recently recorded two (!) conversations with George Musser for my audio series. We talked about the brain’s perception of space and to what extent our conscious experience is giving us an accurate sense of what’s “out there.” In his book, Spooky Action at a Distance, he discusses the related implications of M-Theory and AdS/CFT duality—enjoy this excerpt from his fascinating book!

I recently read Lee Smolin’s Einstein’s Unfinished Revolution in preparation for my conversation with him for my audio series. I was so moved by the epilogue, I posted this inspiring excerpt to share with everyone. Enjoy!
