I found this site while searching for discussions about Jorge Luis Borges. I discovered his writing a short time ago and have read several of his fictions and poetry. I am a photographer/digital artist and use his work as a jumping-off point for compositions.

Welcome jostat!

Did you read, in the manuscript section, an essay about Borges? It could help you to understand better that argentinian genius.:mrgreen:

I was doing some research into the theoretical parallels between the Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics and David Lewis' Theory of Possible Worlds. It turned out that Lewis had himself given a lecture about MWI, and I found the paper on TGL. Thank you TGL! After I wrote the paper (which was a rigorous process... the parallel is not an easy one to motivate!), I came back and searched around the site out of curiosity. I was struck by the "about" section of the website, so I decided to bookmark it and eventually join the forum.

Totally don't remember how I came across the site. But I somehow did in my web searching. I emailed Paul...and the rest, as they say, was history.

It would be helpful for us to know how you found your way here, particularly so we can understand how word is getting around (if it is). If you have any ideas for making the site more widely known, too, they would be appreciated.

This one is pretty easy to answer ^_^ !! I was looking for some introductory notes on philosophy of mind and came up with this page which I found very interesting and that's why I'm writing here right now :p

I found out about this site through LudditeRomantic on Youtube, but I have been looking for a good philosophy discussion forum, for the one that I use to post at is no longer interesting to me.

Well gee, that was about three years ago. I didn't notice this thread then. I had logged on to the forum at thunderbolts.info to discuss the picture of the day. One of the mods there suggested another science forum of broader appeal for me to try. It didn't appeal to me, but that is where I found the link to TGL.

Well, I meet "Hugo" (Paul) on the Ebla forum (wish I had a few posts saved from that place). He invited me here, and I have taken to perceiving him as my philosophy Guru. Because of him, and the guidance, I feel comfortable in any conversation, from erudite, to the ghetto.

I am a student and I was researching something for a social theory class and your site came up.

Posts like this are the reason why Paul Newall (Hugo Holbling) gets up in the morning. :yup:
