Hi Chris
First time commenting on your blog - though I've been delving into it on and off over a number of years. Just wanted to say think the new book sounds great - methodology appeals to me as much as the content, maybe even more so!

I'm loving 'Imaginary Games' (it was your posting on Caillois' categories of play that first landed me, though Games are not my background) and I have 'The Mythology of Evolution' ready and waiting.....

I signed in with google and for some reason have been assigned the identity 'D' - which I can't immediately see how to change! For the record, it's Pat and I'm a (very) mature student who's just finished a PhD segueing between theology, philosophy, cognitve neuroscience and immunology(now you'll understand why your 'collisions' approach appeals!)

Hi Pat - great to 'meet' you! It is always a pleasure to discover a new lurker willing to come out and say hello! Also, glad that the new book sounds appealing - I'm so very nervous about it right now because no-one has read it but me and I don't know what to think about it... But I just have to grit my teeth and wait. :)

Very glad you are enjoying "Imaginary Games" and thanks also for going ahead and getting "The Mythology of Evolution". It means a lot to me to discover people who enjoy my rather odd way of coming at these things! But your interdisciplinary background is so very close to mine (although I have no connection to immunology!) which probably makes it easier. ;)

Always happy to discuss any topic that grabs your attention here - welcome to the Game!


Hi Chris, and thanks for the welcome. I've always enjoyed your blog and I can honestly say it has ratcheted up my own creative thinking in all sorts of areas as well as opening out some new horizons which I'm really relishing wandering along. For both of which - Thank you!

Actually I've hovered on the brink of commenting on a number of occasions in the past but never have for a variety of reasons - most of which probably wouldn't bear too close an examination!

Howbeit, I am eventually out of the woodwork - and it's because of the new book which I KNOW I'm going to enjoy. I guess that's because i don't find your way of coming at things to be odd at all - to me it seems the most natural,stimulating and fertile way to do one's thinking.

In that respect, I think I've always been an instinctive transdisciplinarian - or maybe I should say transcognitive which is how I currently think of it - but it was only the journey of doing my PhD (which began as simply theological and....evolved!) that has recently set me free to recognise and revel in that!

So yes - I'm looking forward to seeing where you will go with Chaos Ethics, and how you will lay out that journey for your readers, and anticipating a stimulating ride - though I have no idea where it might take me! But that of course is the thrill of the Game...


Pat: thank you so much for your kind words - and particularly this word, 'howbeit', which is new to me and 600 years old. You've given me one of the greatest gifts there is - an esoteric word! :)

I hope and trust we'll be speaking more in the future!

:-D Glad to have made a small return.

And yes, I am sure we will be speaking more in the future and I look forward to those conversations-to-come.
