Mind the Eye
Meaning of the Name
The name “Mind The Eye” is meant to be a play on the expression “mind the gap” and “the mind’s eye.” The general idea is one of caution to be mindful of your own gaps of knowledge. You may believe that something is true, but that does not make it so; you may want something to be true, yet truth takes more than desire.
However, it should be recognized that, as subjective beings even truth, from the human perspective, is subject to biases in the form of the epistemology that you ascribe to (more on this later). My truth may be, and is most likely, different from your truth, solely due to the fact that we have lived different lives. We accept different premises, and therefore may come to different conclusions.
If I lost you there, just know this: We ALL experience the world in unique and valid ways. However, the way that MTE presents the world gives more credence to empiricism (science) and logic. These are the truths that are (respectfully) celebrated here.
What’s With The Mustache?
My name is B.G. Carter, and I describe myself as a socialist, atheist, (mostly) strict vegan, feminist-ally, anti-authoritarian post-modern relativist, bleeding heart scientist, millennial with an exquisite mustache. That’s the only reason for the mustache logo actually; that, and it looks cool.
Mind-The-Eye [MTE] is a blog that talks a bit about anything and everything. It tends to focus on contemporary social issues, US politics, World politics to a lessor extent, music (typically some form of electronica), and science. In general, efforts have been made to provide evidence, in the form of links, to each statement that has been asserted. However, the goal of the site is to still remain entertaining, pithy, and funny.
Our Pledge To The Reader
1. We hope create cool shit that you may want to read.
2. We will add to the dialog for whatever is being written about.
3. We strive to cite sources and support statements made.
4. Hopefully we can make you laugh and think from time to time.
So far the site has been going for about 2 years now (time flies), and the content has ebbed and flowed in regards to both quality and frequency. Moving forward, the focus is going to be on generating less content that is more substantial, as opposed to a lot of Meh content.
I hope you follow this blog (subscription box on the top of the page). I won’t spam you, Scout’s Honor, and I won’t inundate you with emails. One email a week tops! MTE is on just about every social media site you can be on, even google+… for some reason. Follow MTE where ever you find it most easy. Feel free to follow MTE on facebook, tumblr, twitter, google+, and soundcloud. Say hi to and I’ll say hi to you!
