Hug the Universe

The universe we’re a part of is a mind-poppingly massive and amazing place. As long as humans have existed we’ve been trying to understand its complexities and master the endless mysteries of this “human” thing we find ourselves participating in, and while we’ve accomplished some truly incredible things, there are still so many questions that remain unanswered. 

Hug the Universe is a website that explores the human experience through the lenses of science, consciousness research, personal stories, and other things that are of interest to some guy named Ryan (that’s me). All fueled by the power of boundless curiosity, courage, and a desire to understand what's really really real. 

Grab your hat, and let's put the “fun” in profundity.
