In these pages the deeper content of the Hindu corpus and the single most fundamental fact of modern neuroscience, come together. They are exposed together, for anyone who is interested, to show how in a very 21st-century way, as well as in an ancient Hindu way, we are what Hinduism may might regard as Śiva's brainchild.

The Nonsense Play

The Nonsense Play throws a critical spotlight on the zeitgeist of contemporary Western culture, covering, amongst other things, our ideas about climate change, recycling, who we are, social constructs, fairness, polarisation, where science is going, and the human brain. It observes accepted ideas about the world, in these and other areas, from a distanced perspective of a greater "scheme of things". Not least, it challenges the societal norm in its notions about the basis of liberal being, by juxtaposing its presumptions about who we are, with the reality of the transpersonal.
