I’m a full-time freelance science editor and writer. My undergrad degree is in astrophysics, with a math minor, from Indiana University. The Thinking Meat Project is the outgrowth of my efforts to understand the puzzles and joys of being conscious matter. I’m not an expert in any of the fields of study involved, just a curious and reasonably intelligent amateur who likes to read about these things. The information here is as accurate as I can make it. Please correct me if I get something wrong (send email to blogger at thinkingmeat dot com); feel free to email me with comments and suggestions as well.
Years after I started using the phrase “thinking meat” to loosely describe the theme uniting the topics I cover on this web site, I discovered Terry Bisson’s wonderful short story They’re made out of meat, which also uses the term “thinking meat” to capture pretty much the same idea, from a unique and amusing angle.
