Writing From the Void

Normally when I want to write a new blog post, I take a few minutes to tune into an idea, and then it begins to flow into writing. Getting an idea involves listening with my inner senses, as if I’m scanning some electromagnetic field for signal matches. When I discover a match, I can lock onto it, and then it’s rather easy to let the idea flow through into words. The idea comes through as energy that I perceive as oscillations in my thoughts, and it combines with memories and other knowledge as I write. So first I get an initial sense of the idea in my mind, but it’s really through the process of writing that I grow into a full understanding of what’s being expressed. So I don’t really know what article I’m writing till it’s written. Sometimes I can only see the beginning third of it or so, and the rest comes into view after I’ve written part of it. I also get ideas from other sources, like people making suggestions. But the best articles that people appreciate most are usually writing with the process of scanning for inspiration and inviting it to flow through. I’ve shared more about this process in the article How I Write. An interesting thing that happened today was that when I tried to summon an article idea, nothing actually came through. I sensed that the field of energy that I normally gather ideas from had gone silent. This happens now and then, and usually what I do is just assume that I don’t ne...

A SR-NET 3D-TO-2D ARCHITECTURE FOR PARASEPTAL EMPHYSEMA SEGMENTATION. Proc IEEE Int Symp Biomed Imaging. 2019 Apr;2019:303-306 Authors: Bermejo-Peláez D, Okajima Y, Washko GR, Ledesma-Carbayo MJ, San José Estépar R Abstract Paraseptal emphysema (PSE) is a relatively unexplored emphysema subtype that is usually asymptomatic, but recently associated with interstitial lung abnormalities which are related with clinical outcomes, including mortality. Previous local-based methods for emphysema subtype quantification do not properly characterize PSE. This is in part for their inability to...
