  • Sound & Fury
    Firstly, if you haven’t seen Sturgill Simpson’s Sound & Fury on Netflix, check that shit out. Secondly this post is about arguments. DJ and I can get into some pretty heated arguments.

Very simply, Dual Nature Human is dedicated to finding a middle ground. Black-and-white thinking is unhealthy, unhelpful, and lacking in nuance. I explore across disciplines to find the ways in which we sometimes mistake the moon for the finger pointing at it and attempt to take the finger out of the picture. Dual Nature Human is also dedicated to encouraging self-care, particularly for those in recovery, and documents some brushes with addiction and mental illness in an attempt to display some of those parts of human nature that are less desirable, perhaps, but nonetheless normal. I hold that no doctrine or discipline is more convincing to the human than the human heart, and so subscribe to that language as well as I can.

Be well humans. All my love.
