“Whatever your determination or will power, it is foolish to try to change the nature of things. Things work the way they do because that is the way of things.”

This part of the website was originally created to hold my playful experiment of Reading Lila. Over time I sensed it accumulating its own presence and core energy and a potential to hold more. It achieved “critical mass” and tipped over into this, its more comprehensive form when I chose to house in it Christopher Alexander and The Nature of Order.

This space is becomig a home for subjects I consider to be metaphysical: ideas that have reshaped my view of the world.
