Dialogue, art, multilingualism, conlangs, and the human mind; perspectives, Truth, connection, concepts as entities, and fiction; physical trips, psychedelic trips, God, isolation, human connection, and the weather.

These all feature is this unique conversation with Norm that culminated with a discussion on how searching - and finding - the truth could alienate one from others, and prove to be detrimental to mental health. Wow.

Bryan is one avid reader. At some point, he noticed that studying philosophy formally, can be inferior to reading an excellent work of fiction. This discussion is about how great novels can teach us important things of about what Living Well means and some of the skills needed in that pursuit. We mention Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and other literary paragons, crediting them with being philosophers. Fun!

Deep Hanging Out is about taking the time to discuss a topic important to both sides at length and in depth. This series came to be as Catherine and I both raised questions to one another about Community.
This last part is a reflection on two different experiences we had in the spring of 2022 meeting and collaborating with internet friends "in real life", as they say. We hope you enjoy and find what to take away with you!
