Welcome to our “The Rational Mind Blog”! We created this site as a place to discuss the big questions about life, the universe, and everything in between.

Our goal is to explore philosophical ideas and scientific discoveries in an accessible and enlightening way. We believe that the intersection of philosophy and science offers profound insights into the human experience. While these fields can often seem obscure or complex, our mission is to break down important concepts so that anyone can engage with these fascinating subjects.

On this blog, you’ll find a mix of articles, essays, and podcasts covering topics such as:

  • The nature of consciousness and the mind-body conundrum
  • Developments in quantum physics and how they relate to metaphysical questions
  • Thought experiments and their role in philosophical thinking
  • The limits of human knowledge and how science is pushing the envelope
  • Ethical issues raised by new technologies and scientific capabilities
  • The relationship of philosophical ideas to real-world problems

Our contributors include philosophers, scientists, ethicists, and curious laypeople. Some pieces take an academic approach, while others are more conversational. But all aim to be clear, insightful, and thought-provoking.

Readers are encouraged to ponder, discuss, and debate the ideas presented here. Philosophy and science are living disciplines, so we welcome diverse perspectives. It is our hope that this blog will spark meaningful dialogues about the deepest mysteries of existence.

Join us as we explore the endlessly fascinating frontier where philosophy and science meet. Let’s try to illuminate what it means to be human in a vast, wonderful universe.
