It’s stories that separate us from other primates
"...human intelligence differs from that of other primates because humans understand and compose stories."

"It could also help economists (and journalists) build narratives from raw data. And who knows, one day it could help humankind correct the plot holes that plague the inner biases of our irrational minds."

Strange Flowers
"Strange Flowers is a cabinet of human curiosities, a celebration of some of the most eccentric, extravagant and extraordinary personalities of the last 200-odd years.

It is a product of the blogger’s obsession with history’s footnotes, paragons of vivid individuality who elevated the craft of selfhood to an art. Because often it wasn’t what they left behind, but how they lived that was their real masterpiece. They might be difficult, ridiculous, contrary – even tragic – but never, ever dull.

Strange Flowers constitutes an alternative universe Who’s Who, a pantheon of ill-deserved obscurity which roams the worlds of literature, art, science, aristocracy and bohemia, low life and high society. Unique and fearless, some of these rare blooms emerge from the shadows of history as unsung influences on our lives, others served as inspiration for fictional characters that became better known than their models."
