Hi - I am very interested in the nature of consciousness and how it informs us about our place in the world, of how we come to know about the world through our consciousness.
I have just published this dissertation on Holistic Thinking and the Two Modes of Consciousness - it's free to download and you may be interested in it:
I think you have an issue when it comes to your work and that is the almost cliched phrase "stream of consciousness". How are you to separate your philosophical work from the gubbins or not that comes from the aspiring minds of thousands of teenage wannabe beat poets and writers? If I were you, I would think about making this post of yours the basis for a blog article. You need to develop an author presence in order that people come to know you as a deep thinker, as someone who does stand out from the crowd.
Don't just publish here on Lulu, but look for creative writing blogs who may be interested in publishing articles written by you. That way you come to be known and may well generate some sales of your works.

Thanks for your link. I'll be reading some of the essays in the next week or so.
And I will take your advice on looking for blogs but the problem is that I do not write essays. I write what you see. I do write for a local paper where I live but they are usually reviews of some sort, done in a similar vein to what I've published, but reviews of local events are not that desirable to a national blog, one would think, but I will give it a look and see what I can find. Perhaps I can get excerpts published in the blogs.
