    Always wondered about your view of personhood being defined by relations with other persons and whether that was from your orthodoxism or a holdover from your Taoist days. If personhood is defined by relationships, then a pregnant woman who wants an abortion who keeps her relationship to her fetus minimal, ensures there’s no person to exist. By ‘caring’ about abortion, it seems like more harm than good is done since it will ‘create’ persons far faster than it can save them.

  2. Hey Mark, I think something is wrong with your site and/or feed. Try googling pseudo polymath — google says your site may have been compromised, plus there is pharma spam. Also, no updates have been showing up in my newsreader.

    I’m on site during the day today. Sunday Kyle emailed me with similar notes but I didn’t get a chance to get on it as I had a plane to catch. RSS is down and it looks like I need to do a bunch of Google admin stuff to get back in googles good graces.
