About the author

Greg Stevens is a writer and producer who is interested in science fiction and fantasy, counter-culture, history, and the intersection between those areas. He has an undergraduate degree in Cognitive Science and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology, and spent several years teaching Introduction to Cognitive Science at UCLA. The course covered questions such as: What does it mean for something to have a mind? What would it take for a computer to have a mind? and What is it about the way brains function that leads us to have experiences, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and desires?

Greg has maintained a personal blog on-and-off since 2008, a Youtube Channel since 2015, and has been a rhetorical trouble-maker on the internet consistently since 1994. To quote a couple of key paragraphs from his “about me” section of his blog:

On some level, I do the same stuff everyone else does: I write, and read, and work, and play, and travel, and exercise, and laugh, and cry. I guess I’m “just some guy”, after all.
