Welcome to Signs of Life, the coolest newsletter in the world.

It's about philosophy and science on the frontiers of internet culture.

If someone sent you this, it must be pretty cool. Subscribe for yourself.

Dear Reader,

Signs of Life—my spin on the recurring medley format, where I send you short ideas, books, links, and upcoming events every week—saw 61 issues before I paused it a few months ago.

Today I'm excited to resume this series with a few improvements and embellishments, but rather than give you cheap talk about grand plans—let's just see what I can do.

In this issue, you'll learn about:

  • How to find frontiers
  • Mónica Belevan's theory of Covidian Aesthetics
  • How to listen to podcasts
  • A light for the most midnightly men, according to Nietzsche
  • How microdosing works
  • News and events coming up (Based Mansion, Austin!)

This post is free, but it's only for subscribers.
