My books often center around contemplative themes. Here they are below...
On the Dynamics of Emotion and Consciousness - this (unpublished) book offers a theory tackling the hard problem of consciousness. It's partly wrong but in interesting ways (heads-up: it's a large file so may take some time to download).
The Spark that Became the Fire - this book is a journey of metaphors through American society and politics. It draws on mythology, spiritual traditions, and modern psychology.
The Field in the Wilderness - this novel (currently in the works) is an adventure story with touches of magical realization. Themes include memory, neuroscience, and human vitality.
