This might be a mommy blog, in that I’m a new mom and my daughter has inspired me to think about a lot of things. It’s fascinating to watch her discover her body. As she does this, I want a place to reflect on these milestones and what they make me think about. At times I may end up noting that she laughed for the first time (last night) and going on about how adorable she is, but for the most part I hope to look deeper. We all came through these same steps, we will progress so far ahead that we return to the same stages in the end. A brilliant arc of physical exploration.

I’m going to ask questions that range from “Is consciousness a virus controlling our bodies through our minds?” to “What the hell is breast milk?”
