Welcome to Matter Thoughts, an online magazine and blog dedicated to exploring the intersection of science, technology, and the humanities through philosophy, reason, and empathy. Here we resurrect the beauty of the past and engage in the wonder of the future. Here we voice ideas which we hope will make the world a kinder place. We seek writers old and young to help us capture and consider the thoughts that matter most to us–and inspire you to discover your own.
