Michael Lilly was born in West Virginia and Baptized into the Episcopal Church. He moved to Georgia at age 15 with his sister, mother, and her second-husband's children. He was educated chiefly in Georgia (High School, followed by a B.A. History, Minor in Religion from Berry College and an A.A. from Young Harris before that) and Florida (FSU for a M.S. in Library Studies), and is currently matriculating at Holy Apostles College and Seminary (Cromwell, CT) in their online M.A. Philosophy -Christian Wisdom concentration. Michael's adult life has been spent working a cash register in Georgia, with trips to England (and Wales), France, and Israel. He is married to "God's chosen Help-Mate for my life," Saralyn, with whom he has three precious rescued elder dogs.
Michael is a confirmed reader, seeker, blogger, and now student. He is passionate about Jesus, understanding God's world, and relating to and with His People. Aside from the obvious Theological (including biblical, patristic, ascetic/spiritual, and natural theology) and Philosophical interests (which include metaphysics, epistemology, and moral philosophy), Michael is into reading fiction and non-fiction, history, sciences, All Things Scottish, Japanese, and Jewish, SF/F, Anime, and folk and world music.
Michael is (or plans to be) an active participant in the Hubpages network community, offering comments, postings on the forums, joining in respectful debates and, of course, the writing of hubs. These shall include primarily book reviews and hubs on Philosophy, notably classical metaphysics (the first philosophy, and science of being qua being), epistemology (the science of knowledge), moral philosophy and ethics (the science of human action qua human action) in order to raise the level of conversation about these important topics and to show that Philosophy is not just a yes-club of dead white men. In addition, he will offer thoughts on Theology and religious devotion, history (secular and ecclesiastical); the natural, human, and social sciences, and occasionally, anime and SF and Fantasy. He writes under the nom de plumeKatanoia, a name derived from the Greek word “Katanoein” (Strongs #2567) that signifies the concentrated gaze at an object that provides a deeper knowledge than merely “looking”.
Aside from his studies at Holy Apostles College, Michael is an occasional blogger –though recent life events have prevented him from actively maintaining them as he would like, but his joining Hubpages is about to change that. His existing blogs include his original book review blog, Philes and Philes ; a blog that serves as a research dump and a record of his studies named The Doomed Intellect; and finally, The Walsingham Way : Pilgrim Thoughts on the Journey of Faith, which records his thoughts and the thoughts of others on faith. All of these are accessible through WordPress He plans on completing a circuit of blogs that treat of the relation of faith to politics and the human polis, and the relation of faith to science and philosophy through the locus of an extended examination of consciousness and the soul, but for now those blogs remain only in his mind and In draft form.
