As T. S. Eliot put it, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” And so I return back to where I started way back in 2004, to the original “Curious Wavefunction” blog. I wish the Scientific American Blogs network success in its future endeavors.
Blogging on this site has been very valuable and instructive, but I am really excited to be back at my old home where I first cut my teeth on blogging and where so much of my evolution as a writer took place for over eight years. It is where I have done 90% of my writing and found my own voice, and where others found me and introduced me to some great opportunities for which I am thankful. It was also where I met some wonderful fellow bloggers who are now friends. I have logged over 2000 pages of writing there, and I don’t intend to stop. The old Curious Wavefunction is in almost every sense my home so it feels genuinely good to be back.
In some sense the Internet is like a series of journeys. The great thing about it is that you can move from one location to another without skipping a beat, you can preserve the continuity in your writing without a single break, and you know that those who have read you in the past will read you in the future; I can see that a few of you have already started commenting at the old site. The Buddha would have appreciated this kind of seamless connectivity and transferability. I am thus very happy to continue writing about the exact same topics that I was writing about here, along with a few more. I thank all of you for reading, and I look forward to continuing the conversation at my old digs.
Live long and ponder.
