Greetings, existence charters! My name is Dan. I am an author, artist, explorer, and contemplator of subjects large and small. My main website is http://DanielNoe.com
I have written The Spider, The Witch, And The Spaceship (science fiction), and The Nutcase Across The Street (politics), which you can learn more about on my Amazon author page https://www.amazon.com/Daniel-Noe/e/B00LXSB048?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_7&qid=1589053811&sr=8-7
Once I have supporters here, I will post videos of me reading chapters from my books.
I keep a blog at http://WayOutLife.com to recount my adventures exploring parks, reviewing books I’ve read, writing poetry, and making observations on life.
I just started the YouTube channel WayOutDan to post my drawing sessions, but those videos will appear here first.
I keep a blog at http://FloraAndFaunaOfTheUniverse.com about alien biology to feature some of the ideas of others from around the world.
I plan on restarting my science fiction short stories in September of 2022 at http://ChampionOfTheCosmos.com. Wish me luck!
I no longer update my politics blog http://TheUnderstandingProject.com on a regular basis, but you can still check it out.
I am currently writing five more non-fiction books, which I hope to have done by the end of the year so I can focus again on fiction, but Locals keeps me busy.
So please join and introduce yourself and your projects.
I have decided to start a new You Tube Channel to go with my FloraAndFaunaOfTheUniverse blog. I will be posting doodles, excerpts from upcoming exobiology books, and worldbuilding advice. The WayOutDan YouTube channel will no longer cover these subjects, but will be for religion, philosophy, travel, exploration, and life's journey.
Do you ever remember something differently than someone else? How does that happen? I once wrote a blog post about this that is slightly too long to repost here. Read it at the link and tell me your thoughts.
Some years ago I developed a mathematical argument for optimism:
Starting with the present moment and assuming endless future time, one can plot a measure of "total good." This total good takes into account our attitudes and how we react to things and is thus dependent on memory of past good and bad. For example, after a long period of bad, even a tiny moment of good can have more total good than an extended period of good greater by any normal measure.
This total good will go up and down apparently randomly. Given an infinite amount of time, eventually, by chance, there will be a spike of good greater than all previous good. Everything that came before this spike will be part of the story of causality of how this good was achieved. Since it is a measure of total good, it will mean that no matter what happened before, it was all worth it.
Of course, the same argument can be used to prove that things are getting worse. Eventually, statistics predicts a dip deeper than any before it. ...
