I’m David R. Woolley, sometimes known around the interwebs as Dr. Wool.
I’m interested in a lot of things. Just Think of It is where I collect stuff I come across that makes my eyes unglaze and my brain engage. Thoughts worth thinking, ideas worth remembering. Articles and talks that give me insight into how things work or a vision of how things could be. And from time to time I write some thoughts of my own.
I started this blog in early 2012, but if you look back far enough you’ll see posts dated earlier – like, as far back as the 1960s. That’s because I’ve posted some decades-old writing of mine here and have dated those posts according to approximately when the stuff was written.
Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily believe or agree with everything I post here.
Some examples of topics you might find here: Language, consciousness, human minds, nonhuman minds, artificial intelligence, humor, music, art, war and peace, conflict resolution, economics, community, collaboration, media, history, human evolution, cosmology, religion, and the origin and fate of the universe.
I do this mostly for my own benefit, but if you happen to find it helpful as well, so much the better. I welcome comments and conversation.
Here’s more about me and what I do, should you be curious.
