Thomas is an eclectic intellectual that synthesises different fields of study in intriguing ways. Combining a strong grasp of history and sense for the present, he explores the boundaries of our current collective sense making. The imposition of meaning is not bound to what is true per se. As truth is hard to grasp, we’re forced to rely on what is available: the lies that lie in between us, our temporal and limited understanding that produces meaning for us, as a kind of virtual space. Thomas provides provocative, poetic and symbolic musings on the virtual landscape that we inhabit. How the mind plays tricks on us, how our fantasies run amok, and how we’re all adrift on the turbulent information flows streaming from our news-feeds.
Fields of study: philosophy, history, economics, anthropology, sociology, theology, technology, cybernetics, ecology, art history, literature, music, hermetics, psychedelics, chaos & magic.
