My name is Jonathan and I’m a graduate student in the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, USA, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, Universe.

I created this blog as a place to share my thoughts on things that I find interesting, post pictures, and so on. Also, I wanted a place to practice scientific writing. Yes, I realize that nobody actually reads blogs anymore.

P.S. About the domain name: I chose “Inverted Earth” because:

  • It sounds cool,
  • I like to visualize deep Earth structures by imagining the world turned inside out, and
  • I couldn’t think of a better name that wasn’t taken.

The name has no connection to Ned Block’s Philosophical Perspectives article against functionalism. The connection is purely coincidental. I didn’t know about that paper when I started the site.
