The unexamined life is not worth living.
With such noise and bustle around us, one cannot help but build a hermitage in one's mind for contemplation and peace.
This digital garden contains some contemplations and musings from my retreats there.
Unsurprisingly, thoughts here are, like every thought, ever-changing.
If you have any question or opinion, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or see the Discussion section for other options.
Maturity level for each note is being represented by plant icons of various growth.
Seedlings () are thoughts barely started. Maybe Jotted down on haste or simply showing only the brief amount of what I thought about it by far.
Saplings () have a substantial amount of content, but much work to be done. Coherence and patterns are just emerging in it.
Trees () are grown up coherent piece of thought/essay/expression that should not change much except for some editorial enhancements.
Withered () are the notes expressing outdated views (totally or partially) but kept for the historicity of our thoughts. For partially outdated notes, warnings will be placed wherever appropriate.
Stones () are notes exported/extracted from other mediums (e.g. Reading highlight and notes). Growth is irrelevant for these notes.
Signposts () are notes that allows us to navigate easily (e.g. Collection of books or writings).
Maturity Levels are subjective. It might only means that I'm a very immature person.
On Top of My mind…
Digital gardens are not about marketing/expressing opinion/prophesize etc. It is about nurturing our thoughts publicly and collectively. To discuss with me, there are two ways.
From any note's page, click the email button on the bottom right to start an email thread. This is private.
Every note has a comment section powered by Disqus. Feel free to use that if you don't mind public discussions.
I don't seek publicity. If you find anything praiseworthy (I doubt you will), tell me privately. For commenting, these are the basic rules I believe not too much to abide by:
- Constructive Criticism.
- Adhere to the rules of arguments. To name a few:
- No personal attack (it's a fallacy)
- Other logical fallacies
- Avoid irrelevance.
- Be civil, please.
Here, I'm using the word hermitage as a loose translation of the word Tapovan. ↩︎
