Hi everyone! I'm Liz and new to this site/community. I'm hoping to connect with others and overcome my anxiety of posting/writing online. I was raised Episcopalian by parents who were atheists and my wife is ex-evangelical. I have so many questions about God, mindfulness, science, and emotional intelligence. I recently left the academic world and I write a lot about whiteness (especially the white savior complex), social media, and LGBTQ+ issues. Nice to meet ya'll!

I wanted an Ask Science Mike logo t-shirt to wear to Dragon con in September, but there are none for sale. Took advantage of a day off to create some fan art from a thrift store t-shirt and some fabric paint. I'm pretty happy with it. @mike

I don't know how, but studying physics and theories of unification usher me into unitive consciousness like nothing else. Today, in particular, I can feel it - to the point where writing the word "I" feels weird.

I’m in the process of making my Facebook account dormant. As one of my final posts, I would like to provide links to some clear and succinct descriptions of all that is wrong with that platform. I would appreciate any recommendations for what links might be best for this. Thanks.

I'll start us off: I wish more people knew that slavery never ended--it just changed its form.

@jherb it means that the speaker doesn’t fully understand evolution. :)

Today is my birthday. Entering this space is a gift to myself.

I am a compulsive connectionist. Each insight is taken as a puzzle piece for a unified view of reality. Each is distinct, and all are connected. I am learning where I fit, and I am discovering the connections that make me more than a puzzle solver.

I am an academic cognitive scientist, conducting computational neuroscience research in search of how matter gives rise to mind. I am particularly interested in how the brain exhibits flexibility in learning, memory, and cognitive control.
