The following essays come from a span of four years, from the earliest stages of writing the book in 2003, to the period following the release in 2007. For more recent work, go to and my page on Reality Sandwich.

Some of the essays here are only tangentially related to the subject matter of the book; others represent phases I went through several years ago, before I had fully worked out some of the paradoxes that the book resolves.
