Welcome

Hi, my name is Mitch Olson and this website is a working hybrid between a personal notebook and a public document that outlines my thinking on a theory of life; a philosophy I call Meaningful Participation.
 
🚧
This page (& the website as a whole) is very much a work in progress. I am in the process of moving my personal notes, from which all of the content of this website is derived, into this website so for the next few months it is going to be "under construction". Probably the biggest part of that process is converting my notes for an-audience-of-me to an essay of an-audience-of-you. In the meantime it might be somewhat messy and hard to make out. Thanks for you patience. Mitch Olson, June 2021
