What’s the scoop?
Hey there, I’m Oshan Jarow.
I’m passionate about what it feels like to exist - the possibilities for sentience. My writing eyes that liminal space between what is, and what might become. Other times, it just stares deeply into vending machines.
My basic sentiment is that we are all going to die & nothing of ours will remain, and the universe is vast & weird & mostly unknown to us; and yet here we find ourselves, alive & sentient, miraculous & vile. SO, might as well kick life squarely in the pants, & live with as much vigor & zest & kindness as we can muster. Doing so is an integral, ecological project - equal parts individual responsibility and sociocultural engineering.
So I’m curious about meditation in conjunction with urban design, lifestyle philosophy in cahoots with imaginative economic theory, and writing as a practice for both self-enquiry and spreading vivifying ideas. I’m after something like existential creativity.
I left school with a degree in economics and philosophy, and began self-educating as a dharma bum wandering Asia. MusingMind is the splayed trail of my reading & writing, my becoming as an astonished flesh-bag in an expanding cosmos.
At present, I’m curious about the reciprocity between culture & consciousness, while also trying not to take any of these inquiries too seriously, and appreciate things as they are.
