My name is Jeff Akin. I graduated from Wichita State University in Wichita, Ks. I am the oldest of four boys whom I consider to be my closest friends. I was brought up in the military; traveling all around the world before ending up in Wichita for the majority of my adolescence. I was raised to believe that the only way to ever understand the world is to ask questions and respect all points of view. I appreciate nothing more than conversation. Regardless the topic, controversiality, or prospective every conversation is worth having. I am a huge proponent of living life to its fullest and never turning down the opportunity to learn something new. My writings are a simply an extension of what goes on in my mind at all times. My writings are meant to spark interest and inspire new thought.

    Fanatic Nation

    6 years ago

    As a nation we love sports. We play them, we watch them and most of all we identify with them. Our fanaticism speaks volumes about us as a cultural being.

    Propositional Food For Thought

    What is a proposition without a bit of whimsy. This riddle of sorts begs the question - If we need all parts of the question to understand the answer then shouldn't we stop arguing over who is right and focus on asking more questions?

    To Be Lost

    7 years ago

    It is when we feel our most vulnerable that we should find our sanctuary. Exposed to face our reality and mortality as only we know how. Remember that all adventures will take you to the unknown... It is what you find while you are there that defines you.

    The More You Learn the Less You Know

    What a concept; Is it possible that the more you learn the less you know? Nothing is more thought provoking than an idea that would suggest that we are becoming progressively more naive.
