Hello. I hope you find something here that's useful to you.
It's essentially just a repository of my writings which I've chosen
to make available to the public. I offer in advance apologies
for not making full use of the potential that this medium provides.
So, without further ado, here's the list of pages available:
- The Role of Detection in Rule Enforcement:
This is my M.A. thesis in philosophy. I've tried to make it an
interesting read, seventy pages as it is.
- The Sunfall Manifesto: This is a very
brief outline of the political/legal principles behind the Sunfall
live roleplaying game system I've designed.
- The Enemy: A short explanation of the
theology of a big bad nasty entity from the Sunfall game universe.
- Existence, Extension and the Ontological
Argument: A foray into metaphysics and religious philosophy,
and possibly the best paper I've ever written. It's about St.
Anselm's argument for the existence of God.
- The Epistle of Thomas to the Creationists:
My critique of those who take the book of Genesis literally is
on moral and theological rather than scientific grounds.
- The Satanic Christian: An account of
a rather bizarre email dialogue I had with a couple of putative
- Corporate Feudalism and Time Theft:
A crude rant about the preposterous notion of time theft. I argue
that although people are paid for their labour by the hour, it
is the labour and not the time which is sold.
- The Twins Paradox: A once had a long
and pointless argument with a friend about the Twins Paradox
from Special Relativity. So I wrote up this brief paper to explain
- Thoughts on Marriage: Some of
my views on the institution of marriage, illustrated with personal
- Sentence Engineering: A few idle thoughts
on the technical aspects of writing.
- A Memetic Taxonomy of Chain Letters:
I've become very interested in the idea of memes, and in particular
I'm fascinated by the way simple things like chain letters seem
to evolve just like biological entities. I have also been working
on a Vaccine. (added

- Personal stuff: A brief bit of self-indulgence,
along with whatever pictures I may feel like scanning and putting
And now, a few links:
- LRPS the non-profit society for live
roleplaying here in Edmonton. Their web page is here.
- Metagame, the journal
of live role playing. I write a regular column for this magazine
on the philosophical aspects of live games.
- Oz New Media, the
company for whom I am currently working. You'll get more out
of the site if you have the Flash 3 plugin.
