"Shards: Fragments of Mind" is a book that includes a mix of short thoughts, personal notes, journal entries, essays, and blog posts on a variety of topics. These range from discussions about aliens and Christianity to cell phones and the ethics of war. The content is not organized in a typical, linear fashion; instead, it’s presented in a scattered order to encourage readers to think and make connections themselves. Each piece can be read independently and in any order, much like searching online for quick bits of information. The book is inspired by the styles of famous philosophers like Pascal and Nietzsche, using a similar approach to offer snippets that provoke thought without being fully exhaustive.


It addresses modern issues through a reflective, philosophical lens, akin to theological exploration but with a broader societal scope, including technology.
