|The Telson Spur: A Way Station for Snark Hunters|
The Telson Spur is a list of links, mainly to academic resources, organized on the theme of necessity vs. contingency in the study of time and evolution (a theme adumbrated in the old debate on the Plurality of Worlds, now the SETI Debate, perhaps first clearly adumbrated in 1788 in Kant's "Critique of Practical Reason," and always implicit in the more recent discussions on the Epic of Evolution).

|Reflective Presence - Donna Martin - Marlena Field|
Reflective Practice involves mindful awareness of one's present experience – both while it is happening and after the experience. The purpose of reflective practice is a greater capacity for
responding rather than reacting
making healthier choices
being more attuned to one's own needs and to the needs of others.
Reflective Practice has been shown to improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being as well as the capacity for empathy, compassion, and healthy relationships with others. Being reflective allows one to be more attuned to oneself, and therefore, more attuned to others
