Markets can indeed organize very complex production processes, to an extent that might well seem miraculous to anyone who tried to reason about it in the abstract. But that doesn’t mean that markets are the only, or invariably the best, … Continue reading

Superposition of Feelings
The act of writing is like the collapse of a quantum waveform. So many things are in your mind, interacting with each other, unsaid. Many truths — some at odds with others — could be spun into a thread. But whatever … Continue reading

How to multiply matrices
This is for my homies in math class. Mathematical matrices are blocks of numbers, arrayed in 2D. (Higherdimensional arrays are called tensors.) Left “times” right equals target. Each entry in the target is the result of a series of +’s … Continue reading

Logic and Emotion are Not Opposites
