These days we are swamped by new information and revelations that often challenge our beliefs. The great Socrates offered advise to us on how to process new information that is brought to us. He said that before we accepted its validity, we had to pass it through three sieves. The First sieve: Is it true? The Second sieve: Is it kind? The Third sieve: Is it necessary?”
In this blog, I intend to pass through the first sieve much of the knowledge that has come to me through the Web, through extensive reading, and through my understanding over the last 30 years.
This is not intended to be a re-blog of other posted articles [although i would like to do that in another blog] My posts in this blog will all be original essays. So as a result, i may not be able to add new posts that often.

I am a published author. Here is a link to my Amazon author’s page
My name is Senan Gil Senan, and I am a writer and author of the Beyond the Pale series of novels which are visionary tales exploring a potential future path of society. They cover a potential future in which citizens are confined to living in citadels. In these cities of the future, comfort and an easy life make up for the loss of liberty and for the all pervading culture of surveillance.
In the citadels, people have transhumanist goals and hold to atheistic humanist values. They see the implementation of technology as a way to master nature, and feel that they are on the verge of a transhumanist transformation into super-humans.
Those outlanders who live outside of the citadels live in threat of detainment and re-education. They give up comfort and live in a harsh environment in order to gain liberty. They feel that they are on the cusp of a spiritual transcendence, and that nature is about to change and will transform everything in its wake.
