Welcome to Astro's Garden! 🌱

A hodge-podge of a digital garden[1], a codex vitae[2], a blog, and a wiki. It's somewhat the sum of all my knowledge. Constantly evolving, changing, and morphing. Also a place where I waste a lot of time, trying to make notes instead of studying or learning. jfdifsjd

This contains (or will contain) a lot of resources, my thoughts and opinion on a lot of things, some reflections, about philosophies, concepts that have really changed my life, and maybe even rants.

You'll find writings of all kinds here; Psychology, Epistemology, Politics, Tech, and everything under the sun. (You will also find a lot of broken links and dead-ends or stub articles. It's a work in progress, perpetually.)

Attention!

Some things here might not apply to you, might be wrong, or straight up silly. I'd love to hear your opinions, though! And this is the Internet, so do use your due diligence, and do your research.

Leave a message if you feel like you disagree, I could do better, or something else. Feel free to correct me, I love learning ^~^)

Why?

  • Everything is linked; to find links between seemingly unrelated things - even if the links are meaningless and are a result of correlation and nothing more

  • A personal wiki for me. You know how you want to pull up a particular study, or a particular statistic, or something else to win an argument but good ole tip-of-the-tongue syndrome hits? No? Just me? Okay. . .

  • To preserve knowledge and archive things interesting to me

  • To reflect and ponder, to welcome change instead of resist it. To revisit concepts and re-examine my views.

  • To make sure it's available to everyone

  • Zettelkasten (heavily inspired, loosely implemented)

  • To find how many times I refer to a topic, concept or even a phrase!

  • To reflect on and remember what I've learnt

  • Archiving! I love archiving.

🌱 Philosophy

It is a garden for ideas. For thoughts. For knowledge. You're free to visit. You can smell the flowers, you can sit down on the benches and relax. You can even find seeds you can propagate. â™Ĩ

The aim of this little corner of the Internet is to make my personal wiki accessible, transparent (everything here is on the github repository, I'll be transparent about my methods, etc), and free! Free as in freedom, not free beer.
