If I cannot explain it simply I don’t understand it well enough. This is sort of a private wiki of mine. It is inevitably a work-in-progress so tap for infrequent email updates to read more finished versions.

My grandpa knew a lot about the evolution of religions, history of Slavs, law system of Poland. But this knowledge mostly died with him. Learning can be really entertaining, for some it is addictive. I feel the need for the input (learning) and the output (communicating findings) to be connected. Each of us is a peculiar filter of this complex world. What are your foundational motivations?
