Online Course Description
A course in the foundations of logic and apprehension, informed by recent results in biophysics. How are we to place sensation and the mind into the world and what role does it play in the physical world?
We explore how we may include these features of biology into the physical sciences. We discuss scientific or existential epistemology, how it is that we may come to know such things.
What can we do with such knowledge? We examine the implications for physics in general, computational and biological engineering, and medicine.

When we are unable to look upon the world without considering a particular set of ideas we may call that view a "religion." In this sense, science is a religion.
In our experience "Intension," what Benjamin Peirce (1809-1880) would have called "our Will," has a direct effect on our motion. This idea led the Harvard astronomer and mathematician (in 1855) to say that the base of all force is "spiritual." It would be a mistake to dismiss this idea out of hand because it is indeed the case that our sense and thoughts change how we move, they affect our motion.
My research focuses on the foundations of logic and apprehension at the intersection of computation and biophysics. I am a mathematician, a biophysical theorist, a computational scientist and engineer and, more recently, I have become a cosmologist.
It is my goal to place biophysics, including an account of sensation and mind, in the physical sciences.
I treat logic and epistemology as a natural science, rejecting logicism, with the goal of building the bridge between pure mathematics and the physical sciences. To my surprise, this work now extends into theoretical physics, astrophysics, and cosmology more generally.
I am also an accomplished engineer and hacker, and I will ultimately return to building machines.

How Zeqr works
Book a Class
We have the worlds top Xperts in almost every subject available to you in real-time. Simply search for your desired subject and click on “View and Book” to schedule a live class.
Attend Live Session
Each class will take place via the Zeqr platform, using our built-in voice and video call features as well as screen-sharing options!
Our Xperts are carefully vetted prior to joining our platform, however, if for any reason you are unsatisfied with the quality of your class, you can rate and review the Xpert. You can also submit a dispute form and we will investigate the situation, if necessary.
