  • Noble Blasphemy
    – February 18, 2013

    This is, perhaps, the most important essay I have written as regards my own system of thought on the aesthetic and the nomic: not in that it gave me new ideas, for most of this essay comes out of ideas already possessed; rather, in that it gave me the language to speak those ideas, a personal language, the langauge of the aesthetic, the nomic, and blasphemy. It is through writing this essay that the system of my thought came unto itself. As such, this, more than anything else I might put here, is the center of the project that is this site.

  • Observational Notes on Nomic Performance (or, Watching Crispies in Their Blinders)
    – February 12, 2013

    A discussion on the nature of nomic conversation (spawned by listening to two young men talkng religion in one of my Starbuckses). Includes exploring the pleasure of the nomic, and exploring how facts can function without the speakers being versed in its encompassing system of knowledge, or even without that system of knowledge at all.

  • On Christian Universalism
    – January 29, 2010

  • Puritan Illusions
    – February 14, 2012

    Another from the Tennyson blog; a note on Christian pseudo-history.
