So I made this website as a combination blog and way to keep track of my projects. The name “quantumanalog” is obviously a combination between quantum and analog. I chose this because for one, I have a degree in physics and like to geek out over things like that. But for two, in regards to philosophy it represents the fact that we are all individuals (quantum) but our futures and place are shaped by the rest of us (analog). As quanta, we can never see the full wave but are nevertheless guided by it. It’s also hard to see another quanta’s position if it is far enough away from yours but that doesn’t mean they still don’t play as important of a role in the wave (analog) as you do.
People often ask my political affiliation and I often have a hard time answering because I don’t care about political affiliations. I care about where the preponderance of evidence is in any social issue. I don’t mean one data point arguments. Both sides are full of those albeit with the right seeming to currently have more than the left. No matter what, though, I’m open to change my opinion in response to a preponderance of evidence. I think political affiliations at the end of the day are mental shortcuts to box people into an ideology. Ideologies ultimately lie along a spectrum, not on either side of a wall.
Anyways, happy reading.
