My new book explains some of the latest discoveries in neuroscience and information science that promise to bring us to a new understanding of the human mind  ̶  an understanding that gives imagination and emotion a central role and avoids the reductionism of cruder forms of materialism. The title "Sampling Reality" refers to the fact that we don't live in direct contact with the world of matter but rather in a vast sea of information about that world, from which our brains sample only those aspects that have relevance to us. It's available to download from the Kindle Store  ̶  just click on the cover image to go there.
