Chapter Two - In Full!

Happy New Year! This post was set to go out on the solstice until an internet outage prevented it. So with the new year upon us, I'm pleased to be able to share the entirety of chapter two here. While all but the title page have been posted previously, this is a chance to read them in sequence without having to piece them together. "The importance of seeing double and then some..." explores interdisciplinarity as an approach and in action - each page (for the most part) presents ideas from at least two realms (philosophy, literature, mathematics, and others) and weaves them together in an effort to continue to build perspective and find means to escape the flatness discussed in the opening chapter.

Given how much i refer back to themes involving flatland from the interlude section - it's recommended to check that out as well. Thrilled to have this behind me and eager to get into the next chapter - pages are already taking shape....

Anyhow, enough from me. Have a look, I welcome your feedback. To longer days and an expansive, possibility-filled year ahead... - Nick
