what I mean by justifying myself academically isn’t writing a paper because I don’t have the skill set.
Rather, it’s understanding the ontologies used within different fields and knowing where i fit.
for example, mathematically I am discrete over continuous.
psychologically, embodied cognition and associationist. positive psychology over abnormal psychology. a touch of skinner.
religiously : no conflict between science and religion. They can work together.
drawn to introspective “observing self”
hesitant to proclaim universals without understanding self properly.
in short, what you’re seeing is a part of a larger work towards self understanding.
but along the way i share because:
I have an audience.
much of my audience likes to learn things and find my weird discoveries interesting.
sometimes my enthusiasm encourages others in their own projects.
so I express my enthusiasm freely because I know I’m doing a good thing by doing so.
