Serious and Sillier


This is a website divided into two distinct states of mind. One of these is analytical and the other is imaginative. In every day life these states mix freely but I hope, by disentangling them, each will be able to develop uncluttered and unhindered by the other.

In the analytical section, "The Guess Worker", I speculate on how the brain works. In the imaginative section, "Tales from the back of the eyelids", you will find short stories fashioned out of my dreams.

Of the two sections "The Guess Worker" is obviously meant to be the serious part, whereas "Tales from the back of the eyelids" is the sillier part, because, after all, dreams are frequently silly. Please click on whatever section(s) interest you on the menu above and have a look around.

Articles from both sections have been translated into the Czech language. These can be found under the heading "České stránky".

I welcome feedback on anything I have written in these pages. You can write your comments in the space provided at the end of each article or story.

I wish to express my thanks to Martin Gottstein of Vogo for designing these pages and to Daniel Rot and Alena Gottstein for their translations into Czech. I photographed about half the photos on the site - I would like to thank my wife Akhila for providing the other half.
