Live The Questions is not just a website; it represents an ethos for authentic engagement with a community of ideas. Such a community is built around peer intimacy. “The Open” is precisely this space for discussion, presentation, and conversation about what matters most.
The best work happens through collaboration. All ideas originate within a community of knowledge built from mentors, peers, and the great writers and artists who have inspired us. This section is dedicated to the books and cultural artifacts that are meaningful to this project.
Before writing can begin, all of the ideas and source material must solidify into a coherent structure. The outlining and planning process is the bedrock of the book-to-come, and is quite possibly the most important aspect of writing.
Ideas exist in the unconscious long before they are brought into language. In the unconscious, endless connections swirl in an ocean beneath thought, combining source material with direct experience to form new insight. When this new idea is ready to be born, it flows outward as inspiration.
“Being & Death” explores the dialectic of self and non-self in respiration. This spiritual philosophy book unfolds in real time on the internet while it is written. Join me in re-writing the story we tell ourselves about ourselves.
